Emblazoned Emblem Upon His Chest

Bear your eyes upon something you don't see every day your wake and breathe a man with no legs is walking down the street lead by a man with no eyes to hear a man with no ears sing this song A man with no hands plays a mean guitar a man with no ears sings rights along Bare your soul upon don't say the word don't jinx the hurt glassy eyed and pacified without a mind still cleverly assigned He runs around and waves at the sky the clouds stop passing by…Read more …

Life

The earth still spins around the Sun it went despite the end that happened all that mattered came to a surprising conclusion and still the children continue to ride Life is without amusment Life is without a doubt Just another reason for mucking all about Why another day does the sun come out to play when the dark descended eternally to stay all that made me shine has gone away to leave this mishapen lump of coal writing about how sad things go Life is a runaway train Life is not stopping just…Read more …

Does it make any sense?

Burn it down rebuild from ashes does it make any sense? Build it up rip it to shreds does it make any sense? Logic is man made madness is descriptive without meaning Good and evil they aren't real things just ways to say How are you feeling? Words have power when used correctly incorrectly they injure Language isn't always spoken nor written nor signed but sometimes ingrained in time BUrn it down rebuild from ashes does it make any sense? Built it up rip to to shreds does it make any sense? Moments…Read more …

I dare you to say what you're really feeling blood soaked may the words flow from your naked soul demonic or angelic who can speak, please tell us I dare you to say what you really wanna say barking mad a haunted lad barely is he cognizant broken down and screeching of profound absence emptiness without purpose blank stares unto all you swear holy or golden nothing left to hold I dare you to say what you've meant to me can you pack enough love can you express enough hate can you stop…Read more …

Utter, Abject insanity plus other Deep Thoughts

I'd be remiss if I didn't add an entry to my blog about this time to remind myself of how absolutely batshit insane everything has been lately. Work has been off the charts in terms of demands on my time. I'm basically working at least 4 jobs right now at the Library. I'm working my job, the Digital Services Librarian, 2 Computer Pages worth of desk time, and for the last few weeks I've been the plumber. On the side, I've been continuing to talk with clients (including rolling out a new website…Read more …

So dark the night

I wonder of why so dark the night steps taken without the gift of fright missed and tripped fallen unto abyss words without meaning set adrift let play in the sands of time metaphors so common a crime I beg if meaning in this life just once let me mean something more than fancy sounds and brazen abounds just once let the beating of my heart saying something besides the whimper of yet another whipped hound my dark askew my light ashine one of a billion, no a trillion, let infinity scream my…Read more …

“Weird Al” lyrics

I was driven today after Weird Al's latest album release to create something, and chucked this nugget together while driving home... when I saw one of these things... thusly, an ode... to the Nissan Van. Imagine this to the tune of the seminal classic from the Pointer Sisters: Neutron Dance. I don't want to look at it anymore I'll just stay here locked behind the door just no time to stop and get away 'Caise the breakes don't work anyways whoo oooh, Whoo oooh There's no beauty in that facade 'Cause than van…Read more …

Let’s Get Busy…

Haven't said much about my state(s) of mind, so I'll do some quick summaries of random thoughts bouncing around... a. I'm over worked. I love my job... but I'm over worked. b. I'm over extended... on everything. I eat too much. I spend too much. I work too much... and I don't work out enough, and I don't save enough and I don't spend enough time on me. c. I say that even after spending a week in Las Vegas... I'm really happy to have won the RUSA Award for Excellence in Reference…Read more …

Doesn’t Really Matter

Guess it really doesn't matter cause nobody is coming to my rescue I can do whatever difference time difference place all ends up the same way The sun rises and shadows cast there's some play the shadows dance words are cast and doubt aghast A pleasant interlude merely a way to make you doubt all before and all yet about to cast it's play unto the game my anger is blamed Guess it really doesn't matter cause nobody is coming to my rescue I can do whatever difference time difference place all ends…Read more …
