Glued to the tube – Who got the lube

I tried to look away…

Another day is closing on the impeachment hearings.
No funny hashtags emerged with metaphorical endearing’s.

There was a lot going on. I was watching. Were you?
According to the rating polls — you were glued-in too.

I know you saw it. I tried not to.
I left the house, merged with the crowds
and networked the morning through.
Everywhere that I went, regardless of the dollars I spent –
it was all about the “U:”

Unity & Under-dogging.
The two merged and displayed “cover story” flogging.

A lot of cover story’s may not “cover much” anymore.
If this moment were a bed — “the duvet” is on the floor.

Code red – code red.
The cover is off of the bed.

But maybe it’s still on the table; the truth.
This is a moment, where I could use a call from Aunt Ruth.

You already know what she would say in a time like this.
She’d round up the posse for comments and she would not miss.

Always tell the truth and no one can touch ya.
Aunt Ruth would high-five that and then hug ya.

She was about the truth, so there’s no need to say …
The truth showed up big time in hearings today.

And so, we’re all “Glued to the tube – Who got the lube?
Somebody’s getting it in; dildo is truth.

There were three amigo’s and a couple of other folk…
Necks and shoulders are heavy; hearings yield yolk.

Oh no and whoa. Who knew the hearings would be this real and so swift?
I’m Qui
I rewinded a time or three, it’s hard to believe this isn’t a series script.

Now turn the television off. Let’s cut a corner; let’s dip.

Shame on SHAME

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on November 4, 2019 at 5:15 am

Shame-is-the-most-powerful-master-emotion.-It’s-the-fear-that-we’re-not-good-enough..png

Shame has quite the fame
even and especially when you don’t recognize its pain.

Many walk around carrying him on their back
because of a shortcoming; a moment of lack.

People hang their head for the hurt that they’ve caused,
like apologizing isn’t enough or that shame is the law.

It’s not true.
Plus no one can render shame upon you but you.

You, alone hold the torch for that.
If shame accompanies a gift — give it back.
You really don’t want that.

Shame mostly lives in your mind
and reflects onto others a hue not so kind.

That hue belongs to you and you alone.
When you exhibit shame you hang your dome.

I am here to say “leave shame alone.”
Ain’t nobody got time for those dry bones.

tom-jerry-spanking.gif

Proactive measures beat shame.

Craniums hanging low isn’t fashionable or word.
Shame is an emotion; beat it with a verb.

Stand erect and walk to the mirror,
clear your throat so that you’re clearer

and say, “that thing that exists – I own it complete.
Shame: You’re too lame to paint my life weak.”

Say it as often as necessary, especially before facing the crew
that is known in the past to laugh and shame you.

Most people do not seek to convey or invoke shame.
Shame is an easy bi-product of the lower integrity lane.

I imagine that you probably already knew that.
Now use wisdom as a rod; put shame to a bat.

Shame on shame. I tell you, it is not ‘what’s up’ or word.
I’m Qui
Shame is an emotion; beat it with a verb.

Ya’ heard?

A Happy Beginning

Let’s do it together…

No — I have not been to a massage parlor at the start of my day.
A Happy Beginning is me just waking to have my say.

Hello baby. How’s your morning starting?
It’s Saturday! Where are your skates? Rollers don’t do yawning.

ice skating-butt.gif

Put some HEART into it.

Let your skates be a metaphor for how you’re maneuvering through life.
Let Saturday be the day that you give your efforts a full hearted “try.”

Do so by committing.
As sure as I’m about this Griot spitting —
I am about giving my word and committing.

 

You be also.
Integrity is in that particular seed to sow.

Are you a sower?
If you are and of good seeds, then you’re also a grower

of relationships and partnerships.
You likely network well and pay for the sip.

Ah yes… I’m a social reader.
And I’m keen on recognizing and calling out a leader.

Good morning dear leader. Where whilst thou lead today?
I’m up early to chart my course; I’m up early to pray.

Shall you join me? I’d love to hear what you have to say.
This is A Happy Beginning for me, beside obvious “bed-romp play.”

You know what that is don’t you? I like bed-romping very much.
A Happy Beginning with long FX grinning – comes from human touch.

I’m a fan of it.
Communicating with you? I love it.

I’m always happy to do so,
I’m Qui
Interested in your morning glow.

Composing a script with you – is my favorite show.
The day is awake… you and I: let’s go!

Leaders Move Forward

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on October 25, 2019 at 2:13 pm

Representive Elijah Cummings.gif

Left, left, left-right-left; whose leading?
Plates are being fixed, but tell me who’s eating?

Leaders take the time to do and re-do head counts.
When they stumble or fall, they’re quick on the bounce.

Leaders Move Forward; we don’t stop or look back.
Leaders push on through, eating a diet of facts.

What’s on our united plate today is Elijah Cummings home-going.
We’ve got a few greats on the stage recalling his life and seed-sowing.

Reminding America:
that our unity can be fairer.

Leaders prompt those who follow to be encouraged and stay up-beat.
Leaders march with other leaders for CIVIL RIGHTS in the street.

The sky was the congressman’s limit – he insisted to press upwards.
Elijah Cummings is the definition of a LEADER MOVING FORWARD.

Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama graced the home-going stage to say farewell.
The funeral looked-like a feel good place; attendants sat in love for a spell.

What a sell of unity. I miss the feeling across the country.
Let Elijah be a reminder to us all, that life doesn’t have to be lumpy

all of the time.
Unite a little more and enjoy the sunshine.

A collection of good energy towards a specific issue is what Leaders harvest and use
to face the dangers of the world, resolve them, and secure protections for me and you.

I appreciate all of the presidents of the past who have led us safely to this point.
I feel pretty groovy about Elijahs home-going being a love-united joint.

Life is great for those of us who are still in it.
Let us use our life force to forge relationship in love and win this!

I’m down with it. Heck!  I been down with you,
I’m Qui
and it’s Friday y’all, let me spring for a cocktail or two.

It’s on me.
Leaders pay first – when they lead. 😛

cheers-in-spanish.jpg
To you, I want to toast: prosperity, peace and wealth,
immediately after toasting to YOUR GOOD HEALTH.

So, I’m in my 40’s and it feels like everyday get’s better.
I don’t run to the doctor for much – I just keep my lobes wetter.

I read a lot, kinfolk; I’m a research beast – it’s true.
It yields quality of life to my fam, so I want to share it with you.

If you didn’t know, human DNA was composed to win
and while gravity is real, please do not feel that you have to give in.

At that ball, DO NOT PUNT.
A mid-drift is coming – I ain’t ‘gone front.
But you do not have to succumb to “the dump”
that looks like a lesser-agile-body crunch,
(shoulders hunched over, sit or stand in a slump).

That ain’t right.
Putting-in on staying young – is my delight.

#1. It all starts on the inside. So never mind those face creams,
if you are weak and sagging at your endocrine seams.

Keep your organs operating at optimal function.
Do the work yourself, have some intellectual gumption.

If you find yourself feeling sluggish and spunk isn’t clear as crystal –
I say clean up your (party rich)  liver with a round of Milk Thistle.

I’m no lover of prescriptions and believe that we can find
a lot of what we need in an herbal supplement bind.

Start an herbal garden. Share the aroma with Mother Earth.
It will be a pleasant reception amidst her polluted girth.

#2. Anxiety is real and a lot of folk have it.
We done fell into smoking, drinking and all sorts of habits.

I understand a reason to have “another drink” – but then we keep on having them.
I suggest cleaning up the gallbladder; tending to your cortisol & adrenaline.

Yes! I watch too many night time infomercials and from them I am learning
that optimal health for the long run is what we’re all yearning.

#3. Our beloved diets. We are human. We should treat ourselves better now
and consider how much we really need to excessively eat the cow.

decorative-line-divider1

It’s a matter of life or death for every person equivalent to a son or daughter.
You may not care about cows, but please consider whose currently being led to slaughter.

By methane.
Is it worth farming that thang?

They may cost ALL HUMANS their futures.
Are they really an affordable hunger suture?

I didn’t say ‘lay down all burgers @ once!’ Good lawd, it’s not true. I just think that we can improve
our diets by lessening our demand on the cow and to be proactive at mending our ozone groove.

DO IT FOR YOU.

good-and-bad-posture-slump.jpg

There is no harm in being informed.

That’s it! These 3 things are helping us out tremendously. Today I woke up feeling 12.
The fam and I laughed over cups of jo’ at our ages, lack of wrinkles, and good health.

We thanked God for it all. We are not all “CORNERBACK fit,” though we never cease the route.
What friend would I be to you if I didn’t share with thee what my good vibe is all about?

I endeavor to be your homegirl, beloved sister and 411 friend to the end,
I’m Qui
Good morning kinfolk, take heed and let good health continue to reign and win.

PS – May I suggest you research a multivitamin? check-mark

 

Let’s Do It

That’s Our Future nudging You.

Let’s do it, go for it, do it big and the likes.
Let’s do it across the board – starting with bettering our lives.

What about the sky? It has no limits from your view.
What does the sky see when it looks upon the lands of me and you?

Let’s pick-it-up, people! That gum wrapper, that plastic bottle, and cigarette butt.
Let’s give the sky competition to which direction reflects God’s love.

What an awesome game to participate in; us competing to show how much we care.
I wish that was the case for real. Why not our reality? It’s only fair.

God has given us an awesome place to reside; Earth is “the giving place” that we call home.
Prove that you love E. and pick up a piece of trash or three, so that the babies can play and roam

tomorrow.
Right now they are marching in the streets in sorrow.

They are hurt.
The ozone has been riddled with gas and appears to be murked.

Well the ozone isn’t completely lifeless; it has the ability to be revived.
So I beg of thee and on bended-knee, that to capacity you share all rides.

#RideShare is fair.

Let’s Do It before we really get into a weathered pickle.
Park your gas guzzler and get an electric vehicle.

Yep-yep. That’ll #Help.

I am in the market. I am duly looking.
In the meantime I’m grinding via Black Car crooking.

The transport concept isn’t any better,
but most of the drivers are hard core go-getters.

I wish them all electric vehicles and I wish it to be soon.
If you asked me what time of day we are in, I’d say noon.

If that were true — but we are late in the day on air quality and emissions.
I could go deep, but fear putting you to sleep – please adopt electric vehicle vision.

The kids are crying.  They say we screw it!
We all deserve a future on Earth, so Let’s Do It.

anyone here-anyone home.gifHello? Hello? Have you left the room?
Did you decide that I’m pandering at a high velocity; vroom-vroom?

Nah. I keep it real. I’m trying to breathe and keep the future fluid.
I’m in search of my own electric vehicle. I’m ‘gone do it.

How about you?
What is it that is restraining you?

If you say “a new car note isn’t in my future” – so you’ll pass,
I’ll meet you with, “What would you do if our reserves ran out gas?”

I think about that often. I’m a writer, it’s what I do.
I’m Qui
Encouraging you to do it. Commit to a cleaner groove.

ALTERED CARBON

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Politics, Science, Self Improvement on August 24, 2019 at 6:51 am

Let’s talk about NETFLIX and all of their streaming…
let’s talk about ALTERED CARBON and it’s layered meanings…

I can’t begin to tackle the narrative series with certain clarity
because I just found it’s broadcast and the concept is “altering.”

The linguistics that encompass this show reflect a united world.
I like it – I won’t lie; I’m a linguistic and futuristic girl.

The protagonist in this piece
is an Asian guy wearing a white sleeve.

Looking like Rick Flag from SUICIDE SQUAD
with Jackie Chan’s moves and BLADE’s old bod.

Yes, Joel Kinnaman plays the series protagonist
who’s been re-bodied and remains on a shortlist

of ENVOY walkers.
Their bodies are weapons – they’re not big talkers.

Hand-to-hand combat scenes that look like video games
and the constant flashes of life before and after – are insane.

Have you seen such a thing?
The concept of avoiding death by dawning a new sleeve?

The body gets old, it can be injured and die,
but future technology is looking to re-home your essence of life.

Kind of like the concept of THE SIXTH DAY,
Joel is like Arnold Schwarzeneggar, in a way –

as in he has been re-bodied
and prefers a brew over yesterdays sake.

The writers have got me; I’m watching Season 1 in a binge.
I’m also concerned about mother Earth and her surface singe.

Fossil fuel is yesterdays rule and must come to an end.
Unless we want to be like the dinosaurs and cause Earth to start over again

without us inhabiting her land. For that would be a problem.
Earth is being mistreated by human issues. We can solve them.

At current, there is a 3-week old fire burning in the AMAZON
set by human beings — so it won’t bring the Apocalypse on,

but it will release MORE CARBON emissions into the air – a fatal falter.
Our air quality on Earth will degrade; our lives forever ALTERED.

But we’re not quite like the Netflix show.
We only have this life and this one body sleeve, yo.

What are we doing?
Earth is not the woman that we want to be screwing.

She is willing to be silent and let you burn and die off.
Thinking about space travel? Today it is not yours to be bought.

PUT THE FIRE OUT. Cease and desist on the idea of making a profit.
God gave the Earth to all of us – before you destroy it, He’ll stop it.

He won’t come back as in bursting through the clouds,
because man has put forth plans to burn mother Earth to the ground.

But He will continue to look after His children who remain fair
and secure a pit for those who support Earth’s fiery land snares.

It’s simple. Think about it for just one minute.
When folks set traps for others, they, themselves fall in it.

It’s old news, its life news. There’s nothing new about this story.
So if you’re wondering if Jesus is on his way? This is no invitation to glory.

This is a tale being told by a man.
If you’re a praying person, God has a plan.

Get in it and get busy caring for your Earth.
Selfish money hoarders, there’s a pit for your girth.

Pray for the world – yes! And remember God is mightier than Gibraltar,
I’m Qui
Up early thinking about CARBON emissions and things being ALTERED.

The bed you make will be your own.
To burn down the AMAZON is to burn down your own home.

YOU LIVE ON EARTH!

CALL IT…

How do you want your life story to go?
What reflections do you pray that it shows?

Haven’t given it much thought? Well, you should.
Our Fore Fathers weren’t “average folk” in their hood —

they fashioned their stories to encompass the good
that they previsualized; providing the future would…

recycle_green-logo.gifCycle. Understand. Embrace. Grow.
Recycle. ReUnderstand. ReEmbrace. ReGrow.

That’s just how life goes.

Educate thyself and chart productivity in your life.
CALL IT once – call it twice. Still no results? Call it thrice.

Remember that old saying, “If at first, you don’t succeed…”
then try a second time or three.

Okay, the last part of the saying – I totally paraphrased.
The point is that you should try again at every opportunistic day.

Do not give up on you or your life’s haul.
Don’t know your purpose? Boo, it is yours to call.

CALL IT.
Don’t hide behind circumstances that stall it.

How do you want your life story to go?
Take a minute to think before heading to and fro.

Previsualize what you’d like to accomplish in the end –
then meditate and pray for guidance to manifest your intend.

God is with you – so don’t worry Boo,
you can’t go wrong in seeking the purpose of you.

The day is young and life is in you – what are you going to do?
I’m Qui
Appreciating thee for your purpose in rolling through.

May blessings reign. To stressing: please stall it.
Life is at hand, don’t live it bland
how do you want it to go? CALL IT.

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.
Come with. This vantage view is better with a friend.

At current — this Thursday is parched
with the thirst of the public’s revelation – at its start.

Right Now that’s what’s going on.
No more singing the “blind clarity” song.

Did you see via Robert Mueller’s lenses?
Words were legal but there were no minces.

He said, in the report ‘that if he could, he would
have told us that the prez was innocent and that all was good

then he said, ‘but the report didn’t state that,’
because that wouldn’t have been a revelation of the facts.

What you say? And um, do what?
Right Now the White House’s lawn looks rough.

So far, so far
[we are] from the word salad of Barr.

Hardy-har-har? I don’t think it’s funny at all.
For the low-hanging “i-word” – many are mid-call.

The speaker of the house resides in a decision-stall. It isn’t easy.
She still remembers what happened to the Repubs when they impeached Bill Cleezy.

Bill Clinton was impeached for lying — one time.
Congress needs to step up and put it all on the line.

Don’t be scared this time.
Follow the constitutions etch and all will be fine.

I will be honest with you,
I’m a bit on-the-fence too.

‘Not overly optimistic about pulling anyone out of position.
I’d rather see our current course just cease;
put the country’s degradation in remission.

That’s all.
To take a breath; an intellectual stall

like the speaker of the house.
Wisdom at the highest levels is still allowed.

Yes-boom pow!
Let’s all reassess, Right Now.

Be not hasty in making any moves.
Adhere to the constitution for leading grooves.

At current — this Thursday is looking kind of parched
with thirst from the public’s inquisition at its start.

Now what? And how now brown cow?
I’m Qui
Chronicling a change in the air and it’s happening Right Now.
