Say, What

Things I know I could have said…when high:

You Can’t Let Dick Control Your Life

Thank you for evoking memories, particularly of days gone by. *BBC

You can’t just let nature run wild. *Walter Hickel, former governor of Alaska

I have opinions of my own-strong opinions-but I don’t always agree with them. *President George Bush

Even though there may be some misguided critics of what we’re trying to do, I think we’re on the wrong path. *Ronald Reagan

We don’t have to worry about endangered species-why, we can’t even get rid of the cockroach. *James Watt, former secretary of the interior

I didn’t intend for this to take on a political tone. I’m just here for the drugs. *Nancy Reagan on Just Say No!

Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours. *Yogi Berra

If gays are granted rights, next we’ll have to give rights to prostitutes and to people who sleep with St. Bernard’s and to nail-biters. *Anita Bryant

I was under medication when I made the decision not to burn the tapes. *Richard Nixon

I feel my best when I’m happy! *Winona Ryder

Ain’t No Man

There ain’t no man that can save me
There ain’t no man that can enslave me
Ain’t no man or men that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain’t nobody here
Who can cause me pain or raise my fear ’cause I got only love to share
If you’re looking for truth I’m proof you’ll find it there

You got to serve something, ain’t that right
I know it gets dark but there’s always a light
You’re gonna have to buy in to get into the club
Trade your worries
You gotta show up if you wanna be seen
If you matters to you, ma, it matters to me
I’m gonna fall hard, yeah I know I am
When the clowns crack up I laugh with them

You say you look funny, I say you’re a star
I say you’re whatever you think you are
Watch your naysayers fall right in line
If we believe it they’ll say she is so pretty
He is so fine

You got to go somewhere, ain’t that true
Not a whole lot of time for me or you
Got a whole lot of reasons to be mad, let’s not pick one
I live in a room at the top of the stairs
Got my windows wide open and nobody cares
And I got no choice but to get right up when the sun comes through

Ain’t no man that can save me
There ain’t no man that can enslave me
There ain’t no man or men that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain’t nobody here
Who can cause me pain or raise my fear ’cause I got only love to share

the Musical Finger of Grief

57730354_2875627849129101_3316432596165984256_n

I am willing to point my one finger of grief at the ‘strange and unusual’ things.

Stuff like:

lost dog

  • Trolls live under bridges
  • There are criminally insane persons running around state hospital grounds!  Just running loose like squirrels in the spring.

(Wait, that could be true.  I am a product of two state hospital patients (one of which lived on the secured psychiatric unit.  And, both Ma and Pa were insistent that I did not cut through hospital grounds due to nefarious beings with shackles around their ankles.)

Regardless, there are still many proven, solid, scientific, ideals…that I choose to denounce.

  • Catholic priest are basically good
  • Adult men, in boy scout uniforms, are just bonding with small boys when they hold sleepovers on a mountain side
  • I really can talk to the animals.  Particularly, the Dogs.  Not the Cats per-say.  I used to talk to the Cats but it felt like confession to a deaf ears.

And, presently, another train of thought…I just cannot swallow…

Christian author: Trump is under attack from ‘multidimensional Luciferian advanced beings’

Last week, End Times author Paul McGuire appeared on the Jim Bakker Show and declared that President Trump is currently engulfed in “the greatest spiritual battle in the history of all mankind.” He expanded on his claim on his radio program this Thursday, this time clarifying that the battle is with “advanced beings” who possess “supernatural multidimensional” powers.

I get it.  Aren’t we all in the greatest spiritual battle of our lives?  Yet, as a not newly released Pagan/Curious Spirit, my waking moments are not filled with ‘let’s go get those evangelicals’ behavior.

One more falsehood, I wish to pursue…

I do not believe in the Burning Bush for the simple reason…

If you or anyone, Moses, Noah, Adam, Eve and/or Ruth (no relation) came across a ‘burning bush’…Smokey would tell us to put the fucker out!

 

 

Big Hands I Know You’re the One

Trump supporter writes tribute song…

When I’m out walking…I strut my stuff.  Yeah, and I’m sooo…strung out.  I’m high as a kite on diesel fuel…I just might stop to check you out.  

When at a MAGA rally…let me go on like the big orange blister in the sun.  Please, please, Big Hands, I know you’re the one.  Body bags and beets, I stain my sheets.  I dunno why.  I have a girlfriend, she’s at Folsom.  She traded some tricks to be here.  But she couldn’t make the grade…now she is starting to cry.

Let me go on like a can of used on Sun-In.  Let me go on with bible in clenched fist and can of Skoal in pocket.  Let me go on…Big Hands, I know you’re the one.

And you know what they say about men with small hands,” he continued, pausing for dramatic effect. “You can’t trust ’em. You can’t trust ’em.

 

Trump’s Subterranean Homesick Blues

I’ve always thought that if it rains from time to time…Do I really need to worry about drought’

You don’t need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows

And, often I ponder…’If I don’t chew gum!  I must be an upright citizen!’

Trump on the problems with wind power: The wind ‘only blows sometimes’

future-uncertain-for-solar-and-wind-power-with-donald-trump-2017-images
The pump don’t work
’Cause the vandals took the handles

“You look at the fact that we would have been powered by wind, which wouldn’t have worked by the way because it only blows sometimes and lots of problems come about.”
