Oh Boy

In Griot, Music, News, Politics, Video on July 13, 2018 at 5:39 am

spanky_oh-boy.gifAnother glorious Friday! The weekends always yield me joy.
Though for what went uphill with Congress’ grill
of Agent Peter Strzok made me say, “Oh boy!

Did you get a chance to drop in and see it?
Strzok on the stand – I wouldn’t want to be him,

but he handled-up and told it like it was.
the statement he made about who the FBI is yielded him applause-love.

I was tuned in and little else ran in broadcast so steady.
For whatever the committee had planned for him, Strzok was prepared and ready.

I’m sure on Thursday morning Republicans in Congress felt confident that they would ‘bring the grill-filled noise,’
though they weren’t fully prepared for Strzok’s dismiss of their dares – he spoke bluntly and… Oh Boy!

Mr. Goodlatte was the chairman and his tone was on swoll
as he tried to conduct business like a boss but quickly lost control.

Democrats spoke-up in opposition of Goodlatte’s lead and the session went into rogue fashion.
Many began yelling about what Strzok would and wouldn’t be telling;
made me think of Cam’Ron & Santana…

Especially when Mr. Gohmert was questioning the Agent and brought up the agent’s wife.
That’s when I had to check the station, Gohmert’s tact was on vacation;
is he about that thug life?

Things in the hearing were pretty ripe. I enjoyed witnessing history unfold.
It really looked like fiction; I grew an instant concern and addiction.
Our country is in crisis — PLEASE VOTE!

Peter was grilled for about 8-hours, with a 2-hour lunch.
How many people tuned in with me? My guess is a bunch.

I almost changed the channel at its start, but I had a back-of-the-mind hunch.
Oh Boy! How many around the world tuned into the hurl? I reckon a whole bunch.

That was yesterday and this is today,
it’s Friday baby. Drop the cares and consider play.

I’m going to consider it immediately after my endearing collegiate ploy,
I’m Qui
On this glorious Friday, an intellectual high day – I pray thee not succumb to the Oh Boy‘s!

Congress started it but Peter Strzok brought the noise.

A NEW BOX

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on July 9, 2018 at 6:49 am

worn-out-cardboard-box.jpg

A new box? This is surely an old one.
With corners so weak, this isn’t a bold one.

The contents of this box are stale as well.
Someone taped it up and labeled it hell.

What the well? Who votes to hail this box beholden?
The contents are irrelevant; nothing is golden.

An old box holds old rocks and hints of chicken pox.
It smells like old white cheese and musty socks.

I’m not a big cheese lover, though on nachos it rocks.
I’m not into cheese as in a coward, who’s trying to please;
I’m not into cheese-smelling socks.

So I wear clean socks
and when I’m packing I use a strong box.old-boxes.jpg

I only use old boxes when I’m packing away trash.
Old boxes contain old views; a DO NOT RECYCLE stash.

North Korea spoke out this weekend and with teeth; they didn’t gum it.
They told the world, our country is a flaky girl; this after the summit.

The moves that this administrator is making are a real game changer.
Word from NK is America is going about business acting gangster.

Not that I listen to NK-Radio or anything
but this isn’t the song that we want history to sing.

It won’t bode well for us tomorrow.
No one helps the gangster-actor in his time of sorrow.

Our international allies aligning with us around the world is what rocks!
Somebody call UHAUL, because we need A NEW BOX.

Uhaul, overhaul; we need a new content (country) holder.
Make his corners strong and allergic to wrongs.
Yield him wisdom, compassion, and wide shoulders.
Strong like Samson — to move boulders.

I miss the years 2008 through 2016;
the last time America’s box had strong corners and seams.

We need A NEW BOX, this one cannot hold squat.
I’m Qui

and it looks like we need A NEW BOX.

LET’S TALK ABOUT IT

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on June 18, 2018 at 6:30 am

Ann-hathaway_on-the-phone.gif

Let’s talk about the weather, let’s talk about life.
Let’s talk politics – the culprit of recent strifes.

talk_about_it_June-18-2018
Let’s talk about the fam’; How’s your momma ‘nem?
Let’s talk about the state of our country and how we can effectively hem.

Where’s your bright spot, America? Aren’t we looking awfully dim?
Speaking of, let me divvy some specific love to the White House: Trump and ‘nem.

What up big Repub in the Oval Office room!
You have no stance and a slimming chance, yet the stock market still booms.

You’re not king ring-a-ling;  you’re chief of what is.
In the grand scheme, this is an American life-thing
and I question if your base-support is that big.

The global world isn’t loving us;
our allies are pushed-away from hugging us.

Rudy Giuliani is still bugging us
and the tweeting prez doesn’t know how to hush.

Let’s talk about it: Families being torn apart at the border.
We’ve too many resources and not sharing; we’re hoarders.

No laws are in place that deems such vile crap.
This is an administration issue, say both Republicans and Democrats.

It’s not a good look for our country and history will duly show
‘the chump on the hill’ to be a calloused heel —
intent on delivering Democracy a low blow.

Let’s talk about it: Nepotism Laws have been slaughtered.
If not to build a platform for women, what’s up with the 1st daughter?

Isn’t she a senior advisor to the prez?
If anything, what on earth has she said?

She, nor her father is helping.
My role? I’m going to God and I’m telling.

It’s what I’m known for and what I do.😁
I go to God when I can’t get through to you.
It’s true.

Because I am a praying spirit, please know that I am wise.
You don’t have to say much – your truths spill from your eyes.

I am grateful to see it.
The unwise under a guise;
I wouldn’t want to be it.

So, let’s talk about it: Where We Are and What We Mean.
Is Congress for the collected WE or loyalist to a he?

Think about it and then speak. Speak up, speak up, speak up!
There’s too much silence on violence or we just don’t give a WHAT.

If we are a collective and we truly care
pipe-up your voice at the ballot and place it there.

Mid-term elections are at stake and on the way.
Get up and get out – you have something to say

and the world wants to hear it.
Obviously, I’m confrontational; I don’t fear it.

Let compassionate hearts and minds prevail
Or I fear America will feel a backlash of hell.

Nothing is done without consequence.
Building consequence is how this admin is spent.

God help us, we’re a year and a half already in.
It’s increasingly difficult to understand and grin.

If our goal is to be selfish, not help others nor let them in…
We are rapidly gaining clarity to what the Bible calls a sin.

Republican Evangelicals:  the American youth are watching.
Their belief in your self-righteous religion is no longer clocking.

They don’t believe in you anymore. So you can stop.
They realize that you’re working for yourself and not representing God.

Their souls are wise.
They see the racism in your heart through your eyes.

When a person is hungry for help it’s hard to digest lies.
I’m Qui
Up to talk about it, because our biggest commonality is life.

Give it some thought and then let’s talk; be open-minded and spunky.
We’ve got to come together to change this administrations weather…
Let’s talk about our country.

News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on May 11, 2018 at 7:56 am

newspaper-ladyI’ve subscribed to two newspapers and several magazines
and I still don’t know what’s going on in the admin of things.

What’s going on in DC? The White house vibe is on blast!
Muellers subpoenas wear boots and his queries kick-ass.

Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is Leo whose on-the-line everyday.
As the presidents Communications Dir. – why aren’t they on the same page?

It’s not fair to her
that she has to explain the thick of the stir.

It’s not fair to Sandra at all;
her position is comparable to a seat in a stall.

She knows it.
Her eyebrows and neck show it.

Sarah is not happy and I intuitively feel her.
I know she can’t until the Press Corp Dinner is a distant blur.

There, as well, she took a roasted beating.
I’m not a SSH fan but she’s clearly a woman
not quick to be-up-for conceding.

Thursday’s news coverage didn’t really give a damn
about Trump and Melania meeting returned-hostages at 2 am.

Coverage was nill.
However, the Stormy Daniels deal is still uphill.

Thanks to Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen can’t get a break.
I’m wondering just how much more pressure the Fixer can take?

Stress is good for no man.
Michael Cohen looks like the fall-guy
I hope he has a plan.

Oh man! Oh man! I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes
and be a part of this periled News Peruse.

Thank God that I’m just writing.
Compared to Cohen’s problems – writing is exciting!

Giuliani! Giuliani! What are you doing?
The golden years are no time for repuation screwing.

I know that you’re wiser – but you’re fronting for a friend.
Birds of a feather flock together and they may burn you in the end.

Don’t you think?
Please be clued-in post reading my ink.

Giuliani you gotta think, man; life is a give and take.
You gave and are giving but not fit for Secretary of State.

It’s okay, but you don’t have to continue to play yourself.
Enjoy your new resignation from the firm and focus on your health.

I know that I would.
Living a long and prosperous life is what’s really good.

You are an elder now.
I admire your life tenur and yearn to know ‘how.’

In wisdom, of course.
Living a long and happy life is the ultimate score.

Do what makes your soul happy is longevity-giving.
Making love instead of chaos & war, can be quite healing.

Let’s do it today. I’m talking about me and you!
I’m Qui
and it’s Friday baby; be proactive about this News Peruse.

Get Busy Y’all

Good morning dear neighbor. What on earth are you doing?
You say ‘A storm is brewing and that she’s filed for suing?’

You mean Ms. Stormy Daniels? You say that she’s suing whom?
God bless those on ‘that wagon.’ The right wheel looks doomed.

Though I pray to God that it is not,
lest the agenda of the wheel is completely shot.

The Nor’Easter is headed east but Arizona is still hot,
The Tariffs are on the table and Gary Cohen’s left his job.

The Oscars ran last weekend, but I didn’t look.
I was about my academic studies; my head in a book.

Though, I have enjoyed the Oscar media highlights
of stars supporting DACA and supporting Women’s Rights.

It was nice but what does it really mean?
The Oscars was a collective stitch at our divided seam.

It’s a good look – The Oscars, but is America still looking?
Or are they working overtime trying to sift through what’s cooking?

Politics is front and center. Please report all defiance’s to the boss!
The White House has a few bulbs out; operating in a dim chaos!

Woops! Watch out for the Ming vase! You can’t afford the cost.
Xi Jiping is set to be president for life. Forever, China’s boss.

The media reported it, though it’s posed no constitutional attack.
Then Trump uttered the words, Maybe we should try that.’

car-goes-off-cliffNo. We shouldn’t and furthermore, that is not a joke.
He’s overstretched on governing and choking at the throat.

The State Department is understaffed – who’s balancing checks?
The intelligence community is at odds and your cabinet is a wreck.

Cybersecurity teams have no new coding strings to remember
Because very little is being done to protect the mid-terms in November.

Good morning sweetheart, do not hit the snooze.
Wake up! Wake up! You’ve got too much to lose.

We’re headed towards a cliff and the car is set to cruise.
Wake up! Wake up! We’ve got too much to lose.

Things are messed up – sure, still we can change this groove.

presidents day.pngPlease, yo – say it ain’t so.
Is it time for a News Peruse?
I’m inclined to say, “No.”

I don’t miss running down headlines, though they inspire me to script.
Then I wake up this morning to another round of the hill’s fat lip.

Oh, it’s nothing deemed new-news, we’re still swelling off of last weeks hit,
when Mueller passed down 13 indictments on Russians for election meddlin.’

I don’t want to talk about it, really.  :/ I’m poised to wait for the investigations answers.
Nor do I want to talk about Melania’s man cheating or the scowls of Sarah Sanders.

Oh – why, yo?
And on top of that, I think she’s a Leo.
Noo!!!

Have you seen Steven Colbert’s new animated show, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT?
It is actually genius work and a great way to comedy vent.

When was the last time that you laughed? —- Oh! Just now? You did it?
Was the reason for the laughter over something the President twitted?

I see. I see.
‘Woah is me,’

is what I think when I start receiving courtesy cues
that folks in my circle are ISO a News Peruse.

I don’t even want to talk about the Florida shooting…
It’s like watching a hunting humans club and they’re recruiting.

The NRA takes no blame…
ill formed Tweets etch in certain shame.

The leader is so limp, unintelligent and lame
that even our children refuse to say his name.

We lost 15 children to gun violence on Valentines Day.
Giving credence to them saying, ‘Nothing ever goes their way.’

They complain and we brush it off.
17 more lives are lost. How much more is the cost?

In my mirror is a daunting reflection of world views,
in order to keep it real – we must thumb through and News Peruse.

I hear your vibes and it’s true – I love you anyhow.
You always come through with the supportive bOoM-PoW!!

Thanks for that.
Now make it a point today – to LAUGH.

You got this! I got this! Having a GOOD TIME is what we do!

Camels HUMP

A new camel.

Doug Jones humped-up on a win last night.
A-L dispelled any hint of disconnect in sight.

It was a pretty tight race. I tuned in and out.
I woke up this morning to hear Alabamians shout:

WE HAVE COLLECTIVELY CHOSEN DOUG JONES!
I know many voted otherwise – I don’t think that you’re wrong.

Though I’m glad we’re turning a new corner in this reality song.
We’re looking at things differently – perhaps our unity is still strong.

We are all Americans and we are our best when we stick together.
It’s good to reveal we prefer to heal – still birds of the same feather.

survivor-torch extinguished.jpg

Alabama has a new Jones.

As the cold weather moves into atmosphere, o’ isn’t it clever
that we would find warmth in decency and voting together.

Congratulations Alabama for speaking up and showing face
and proving to the rest of the world that you, alone will call your fate.

Today is a beautiful day. We all woke up alive.
Viva la Hump Day. I’m happy to embrace the Jones vibe.

Virginia started something; it’s a reckoning and it’s loud.

Happy about it – oui! To be  an American, I’m feeling proud.

Entering the change…

Theme music for today

Did you hear Joe Buddens PUMP IT UP song booming from your neighbors house last night? If so, that’s because Virginia and New Jersey showed up and showed out.

It’s not Friday night but you cannot tell by the way my neighbors were wielding out last night after hearing that the country isn’t as doomed as it seemed.

The college educated suburbs in VA showed up and had something to make clear; they had something to say.
New Jersey came in on that same Democratic horse and up on hind legs insisted they came to play.

Welcome back kinfolk. You were missed.
Though I admit I’m gonna miss Chris.

Remember Hurricane Sandy
when he and Obama were dandy?

I enjoyed that hug.
I appreciated Chris giving up the love.

So, yeah I’m going to miss him and his snarky filled, sarcastic-ridden speech.
But not as much as Chris missed the crowds the day he closed down the beach.

jon-stewart-chair-danceYeah. It’s all good.
This morning NJ has a new Governor in their hood.

There are many across the country who are starting this day off with a smile
after realizing the country may be waking up; marking a new mile.

Me? Sure, I’m happy. I’m an energy lover who thrives on what’s in the air.
Right now happyis spilling over and I feel it in my toes and my hair.

Woo, I’m surrounded! There’s a feeling of giddiness in my solar plexus and I’m ready to play!
Entering the change that can propel us from lame is the perfect hump to ride on this day.

Jump atop of it and co-mingle with the person next to ya. Yield them a smile.

excited to write that visceral hate isn’t the vibe and quite happy to walk a new mile.

Awake

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics on November 6, 2017 at 6:43 am

A good nights sleep, the feeling of safety, a good time being had in public, or a barrelling laugh —
Seem to all be indications of the American Dream from the past. Yesterday is fading fast.

The blind vie for political positions
and are voted in, in the name of “party tradition.”

Tradition used to indicate that a cadidate was sharp, groomed and vetted to serve.
Today tradition is gone away and taken with it the strength of our forefathers word.

The people feel less secure, many are leaning towards scared.
Folks are unsure about tomorrow, if their 401K’s will be there.

The 2016 presidential candidate, (now prez) said while on the campaign roam
that he could protect you from harm. Him and hm, alone.

After what happened yesterday at First Baptist Church in Sutherland, Texas
“More safe” is not the repeated feeling that connects us.

26 people were shot and killed in church.
15-20 others were injured and hurt.

Gun regulation talks are not on the table or amidst
and the white guy who killed 26 isnt called a terrorist.


The president nor the media are able to say.
However, had he been tan — “send him to Guantanemo Bay.”

News Flash: If someone is threatening folk with a gun, a running car or a large stick
and kills people in his wake – he is called a terrorist.

Still the prez spoke yesterday and did not fail to miss
labeling yesterdays white male killer “a terrorist.”

The prez also said (earlier) that he, himself, ‘had a good brain’
but can’t remember how his administration got in this Russia thang.’

Or what Wilbur Ross is doing. He’s too old to be a theft chameleon.
He’s our commerce secretary whose personally hoarding billions.

George Papadopoulos is still sitting in the hot heat
while the white house doubles down on, “Who is he?”

Michael Flynn and son should be on the run from all that glitters,
they are under possible indictment and should stay off of twitter.

Please dont be bored about this. Please do stay awake.
Everything going on today puts your future at stake.

The dude from that reality show whose in the white house is an Apprentice with no skill.
You better vote or bear more yoke – today’s law is tomorrows continued ills.

Wake up and get real. This is not field day and we are not on teams.
We are Americans at heart, in goodwill, good deeds and good seams.

Good morning goodness. I’m obviously on the up-take.

shaking your shoulder a bit. Can you hear me? Are you AWAKE?

Picking with the P

At The Pumpkin Patch with my little Pea.

Happy Halloween to ya! Ye ol’ curve is rising; today is deemed the day of pre-hump.
Nothing is scarier or hairier than having worked on the campaign of Trump.

Mondays indictment dump put a slump in a few of the former campaign kin.
I don’t know the score, but God bless Paul Manafort – with him the arrests have began.

Then BOO! It’s Halloween, folks are dressing up, (some in costume & such) and heading off to work.
The world continues to turn while the futures of former campaign-heads burn with an uncertain flirt.

Such intense scrutiny on ones life has got to spirit-hurt. So I shan’t dance on their bad.
I actually feel for Manafort,  Papadopoulos and Gates.  Human compassion. No laugh.

We’re all human. We all make mistakes.
Sometimes, in life, we over stack our plates.

And then we get a tummy ache; some may even feel like you have to poo.
That’s usually once you’ve been served and you know the po-po is coming for you.

‘Tis TRUE.

p-is-for-pumpkin.gif

Pick and choose your battles and may your burdens be light.
Think about what you’re doing and how it will affect your life.

Who deserves what? And who are we to judge?
What would you say if I said the purported 3 could use a hug?

Pardon? Do what?
You don’t feel like participating in a hug?

Understood. jack-o-latern-pumpkin.jpg

Therefore, I won’t go so far as to send the aforementioned any flowers,
but I will lend compassionate vibes as I’m sure others are sending sour.

Today I am glad we are cautiously approaching the hump.
Today I am glad my name wasn’t in the indictment dump.

Today I am glad that we have a calendar day
where we can dress up and do a little fantasy play.

Ahem. Well, I do it often – it’s just what I do.
I’m sure you’ve seen me change my hair color a time or two.

I’ll never forget (a decade ago) I was dressed, out and about in February thinking I was looking cool,
When I overheard a couple of kids say, “I wonder who she’s dressed as,” – while I was visiting my kids school.

letter-p-variations.jpg

Pick a P…

Now, I was not a part of an assembly nor were the kids putting-on a shady front.
My top hat and heels just reminded the kids of a profile within Black History month.

So help me God, they truly and honestly thought
that my daily gear was stage-worthy and costume bought. jack-o-latern-pumpkin.jpg

So, I suppose I could dress up today as a Black History icon.
I can be me – from yesterday. Oui! Yesterday was pleasant and fun.

However, interest in reliving yesterday – I have none. I’ll dress as a sexy vixen.
I’ll be a domestic house bunny, with greens, cornbread and other nutritious fixens.

It’s an easy outfit to conquer. What do you think?
Of course, I’ll also have candy and Proseco to drink.

Today is a day of pretend. I am totally down – in complete fashion!
I’m Qui
I’ll be portraying a fantasy of partying at the Playboy Mansion.

I’m thinking about it…
