For Greater Good


Nature sometimes

needs technology

and technology

is beautiful when

it helps nature

endure and prosper.

 

When the right minds

get together

and learn how much better

a plant can be tended

to and harvested for

greater good for greater

survival

that is one example of when

technology too

is beautiful.

 

Things are not so beautiful

when mass plantings for

mass production cause

mass sickness and mass

destruction all in the name

of a marketed label that

serves an empty future

to a household table.

 

Let machines and gadgets

evolve but let the products

of nature do the same in

ways that add to a greater

natural good

not a tasteless

hidden

shame.

Election Season


Every day that passes is
like walking through
a trough of quick dry cement.
At first we think we can
pass through it at first
we think we can really
do it as each step we
try to take with it envisioning
the best that we can
make with it but the further
we plod we are more and
more stuck in it seeing
the promise dry up we instead
say the fuck with it
instead
we see dread
our dreams
hanging by a thread
against an overwhelming
current we desperately
tread trying to serve
our children daily bread enabling
their appetite for achievement to
be fed hoping light will
cast upon the tunnel ahead
to end our disappointment in what
the politician said that the
good is on the way and the
bad can now be shed while the
will of the voters was left for
dead on the congressional floor in
a puddle of red striving stronger for
recovery we have sweat we
have bled we must keep what is
good and right from nodding
off to bed.

To Follow Or To Deviate

Filed under: Poetry — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — migueltio @ 11:23 am

Following down the remote

secluded highway the

daily route traveling from

dawn to dusk the appearance

of choices to change direction

evolve as endangered and

utterly absent.

Further along a rising

oasis emerges from what

was thought to be no

alternative but to traverse

forward the question arising

is this a decision worth making

a territory worth staking

a new turn worth taking?

Is the sun truely shining

or is this just unfocused

pining for a day of glory

that does not truely

exist here but is only

enticing me away

from dedication

leading me to ponder

like expired medication

whether or not this is

my new destination?

Beauty in the eye like

the Caribbean chica

brown to the skin

and jet black hair I must

ask myself if she is really

standing there is her

presence true and pure

or is it thin as open air?

She may or may not

be there just like the palms

that surround her and

the tranquil pool nearby

she may only be an

empty dream of pie

in the sky no more alive

than the large horsefly that

falls before me on

its way to die does she

represent a new

a true direction or is

this just empty misconception

shallow in perception

yet full of deception?

Any new alternative

direction a tropical

setting a rocky mountainside

a glorious field of

floral pride may

appear a better

choice in my

ear hearing a

voice to turn or

not I must decide.

Feed The Greed

Filed under: Poetry — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — migueltio @ 12:15 pm

Feel the need

feed the need

they feel the

need to feed the

greed forcing us to

bleed more for

their seed

we feel the need

to grow more weed

to economically succeed

while our brain cells recede.

Many diss those who

are not of their breed

who do not subscribe to

their narrow mind creed

because they were born

of a different seed

and in arrogant eyes

they only impede

the closed minded doctrines

to which many heed

seen as unworthy

not up to speed

thinking them void

of any good deed.

So many miss

the signals we

should read

that wars have been

won

slaves have been

freed

equality and goodwill

have been nationally

decreed

only to fall upon

deaf dissing ears

no matter how much

we teach

inform or

plead

clouding over the

benefit of

medical need

clouding over the

ever present harvest of

greed.

Paying Forward

Filed under: Poetry — Tags: , , , , , , , , — migueltio @ 8:03 pm

We try to make
a plan to which we
look forward.

We look forward with
focus without hesitation
looking forward with
confidence without reservation.

We try to make
a plan that denounces
segregation reduces
aggravation undercuts
separation.

We can plan to partake
in recreation we can
plan to partake in
procreation we can plan
to partake in association
not desiring to plan on isolation.

The object is to
have the motivation
toward investment in the
cultivation of one more
future generation
to whom we have the
obligation to defend
from deprivation
nurturing their education
enabling their preparation
to preserve each
diplomatic nation
from falling to
worldwide mutilation.
