agen-dumb

tragedy strikes
all climb on board.
the platforms, agenda...
the usual horde.
meanwhile the victims
those they love
or have lost...
in this maelstrom
of misery.
their tragedy tossed.

wake up all of
you who think
this is an excuse.
to posture and ponder
your rhetoric
obtuse.
this is not about you
this about those
who are caught
in the crossfire of
the moment...
some true compassion
is sought.

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
