UNEXPECTED BENEFITS

How many expect a blog

Fostering open dialog?

On points dwelt

How folks have felt,

But it won’t my whole blog space hog!

THE YEAR OF VOYEURS’ DELIGHT

THE YEAR OF VOYEURS’ DELIGHT

On “COAST-TO-COAST-AM” and such*

We’re hearing so very much…

About piracy

Of privacy,

And how closely we can be touched.

Facebook, Google and more,

Our intimate details explore…

To sell us stuff

That interest enough

To helpĀ their dividendsĀ soar!

My own experience with Yahoo

Made escape the clear thing to do…

Scads of lonely women

Ads in which I was swimming,

After I had changed my status to “Married”, too.

It’s not just the N.S.A.

That hopes to get away…

With making you

An object to view,

A toy with which to play!

A recent Olympic tidbit,

You do what you will with it…

Russian observation

Of showers’ conservation

Of water or not is viewed legit.

(by them)

Don’t know if it’s just the water flow,

Or filming showers–don’t know–

But cold water shivers

For peep show givers

Could well convince visitors not to go!

TYPHOON TERRIBLE

TYPHOON TERRIBLE

Ā 

The Philippines had a typhoon,

The largest yet, they assume…

Everyone hurried back

With a very quick pack

To see if their families came through.

Then Indiana and Illinois

Were hit by tornado convoys…

Most churches still stand

In the midst of wasteland,

And folks searched for their girls and boys.

Israel has sent aid more than once,

While China’s P.R. just punts…

Being slammed for so little

Aid to spittle

In their eyes, which to the world affronts!

PREPAREDNESS SEPTEMBER

PREPAREDNESS SEPTEMBER

Preparedness in Massachusetts,

Those thinking ahead think it nuisance…

To propagate

A nanny state,

In common sense it seems useless.

Those folks who’ve lived here for long,

Find urge for survival real strong…

They don’t need to hear

Facts they know clear,

But not being prepared is wrong!

The State wants us to have a kit,

For as much as we can remit…

No one can trust

The weather’s weird gust,

The idea doesn’t bother us a bit.

If city folks need this reminder,

Far be it for us to be hinder…

That our lads and lasses

Live as time passes,

Responsiblity for their families as a binder!
