Glued to the tube – Who got the lube

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on November 20, 2019 at 2:33 pm

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.

LAUGH BREAK

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on November 19, 2019 at 9:31 am

Michael Jordan LAUGHTER.gif

We do a lot of things naturally, like expend and take-in copious amounts of energy.
If I didn’t break up the concentration of no-flux, what kind of friend would I be?

Reading is fundamental and is an activity that I enjoy best.
Good jokes appeal to me; I find them in the READERS DIGEST.

The world needs more smiles and less “do I still look happy” fakes.
If you reflect the latter of the two – please genuinely enjoy this LAUGH BREAK:

Karma

Scrabble

Fonts-at-the-bar

Controlling-Joke

Scared-Mathmetician

ADD it UP.
Laughter is good for the heart; Laugher is good for the gut.

Partake in a laugh or two, we really need three or four,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, show “smile-less” to the door.

There’s no reason to harbor it anymore – for goodness sake.
So never mind what thoughts plague your mind, let’s all take a LAUGH BREAK.

.

Good morning sweetheart, I’m on the run.
Last night was spent on editing fun.

Hard was the sleep that I just awoke from.
I’m an earlier bird when trying to beat the sun.

Lord: let today be filled with a whole lot of “yum-yum,” as in new creative business.
Let the university and those in parallel transit pique to bear witness.

Let my writing hand be of olympic fitness.
I am gratefully thankful to be so gifted.
AMEN.
He’s got the whole world in His hand…

and so onto a soap box I go
about ‘how the good of this day‘ will indeed be so.

Why not? If you ask me,
the last three days have been complete TRINITY.

I’m looking for THURSDAY to follow divine suit.
Mercy-Mercy! Let goodness be all over my literal fruit.

It will be and it is already so.
I choose to spend the first of my fruits with you, yo.

Good morning sweetheart. We are almost at the weekend,
I’m Qui
Up early for the reel; because the real is my friend.

THURSDAY is in progress as I speak.
Time flies when you’re having fun. Merci!

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!

Monday is a fine day to make a new decision
to do good to others; utilize vision.

Move in a positive direction. Do it for you.
Monday is a fine day to do what you want to.

I woke up early excited to do me.
Doing-for-self will always be key.

How’s your health and how’s your diet looking?
Are you still eating fast food or at home cooking?

Me? I can do better; let the scale be my proof,
so today for lunch we’ll all be doing JAMBA JUICE.

Oui-oui-oui,
lunch is on me!

Monday is a fine day to care for the lot of.
I’m Qui
feeling nice about thee. Let’s start this week off with a hug.

BRING IT IN
and don’t forget to repent for your sins.

God understands and loves us – it’s okay for us to talk to him too.
That’s really all He’s ever wanted from lil’ ol’ me and you.

Honestly, He’s always given us much, much more.
Monday is a fine day to put-in-on a dimensional high-score.

XO.

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. 😛

No Debating HIGH RATINGS

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on October 23, 2019 at 6:26 am

neurosciencenews-lies_vs_truth.jpeg

Today is a big day, yesterday was a big one too.
It’s seems a whole lot of dark stuff is in popping up in the news.

It seems that all it took to deliver us here was an honest-man speaking truth.
It’s all that I’ve ever longed for, reminding me that I miss my Aunt Ruth.

Yes, I do talk about her a lot. Let her name comfort and hug ya.’
Aunt Ruth was about the real and if you couldn’t deal, she’d say “fuck ya!”

I miss her dearly and I hope that you know
that “middle-finger comment” isn’t from me, but  Aunt Ruth’s quote. 😛

So why the HIGH RATINGS last night? What, pray tell is Congress’ view?
Well, it looks like impeachment is around the corner as well as several #PrisonBlues.

How hard can it be to tell, hear, and digest the truth?
I hit up E-40 for an honest POV; a culture-reflective view:

Things are only low for those who have chosen to lie,
to not support the Constitution nor the quality of our lives.

The Kurds are losing theirs; their level of safety is bane,
and then there’s the issue of: quid pro quo and Ukraine.

So why the HIGH RATINGS? We’re in no position to gloat or flaunt.
I believe the ratings are high because this is a moment the people want.

There’s NO DEBATING that the world has been in a funk.
God still has our back and the new script isn’t bunk.

You don’t have to stay-tuned to the news, God will make the truth a prompt in your throat.
May honesty be your shotgun buddy and ride with you on every to and fro.
Having said as much, things are looking up, yo.

Good morning baby, we are mid-week already.
I woke up this morning feeling fly like Blondie and Fab5Freddy.

Everybody’s still fly, right?
I’m Qui
Digging the high ratings for more truth and less debating; I’m about that HONESTY life.

The TRUTH is my JAM.

 

And so

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on October 21, 2019 at 4:45 am

Mick gave us his word, before his word was dead.
That’s when I stood up to clarify the moment and said:

oh-no-he-didnt_DamanWayansJr.gif

But he did. He took back what he said 5-hours prior
when the press corp was in the room and he had the floor.

Weird moments in time have been popping back up
since the media started rewinding “honesty cuts.”

You know, “honesty cuts?” That’s when someone has a moment of clarity
and blurts out the whole-hearted truth then pretends it was all parody.

You gotta be kidding me! And so I just thought I’d mention
what is constant reality in this era’s indention.

It’s an integrity issue and it keeps on happening —
“honesty cuts” show up before faux-talking-point dampening.

Why?
What does it cost you to live a big lie?

I wouldn’t know.
The “lie-laden route” is one I don’t go.

And so today my integrity is in check but not my Vertigo.
I woke up yesterday morning thinking I was on a boat.
Do you know Vertigo?

It’s a relative to TMJ so here I go.
I got this though.

It will not keep me from chatting it up with you.
It will not delay me from honesty and spilling the truth.

As sure as my beloved Aunt’s name is Ruth,
honesty and integrity should rank out-the-roof.

Put no ceiling on that, kinfolk.
And pray for those who lack its show.

Leadership qualities are the bombs and so
I’m eating up the course that’s on my degreed to-and-fro.
It’s a must, yo.’

Good morning kinfolk. What-it-look-like outside?
Are you up for the challenge? Are you down to ride?

If so, I’ll step off of this boat that dubs as Vertigo,
I’m Qui
accepting nothing in my way that keeps me from play, and so

Yee Doggy

Life. Paddle through it.

I once had a friend named Cheryl who was married to a dude named Bobby.
They were from Wichita Falls and to ‘be country‘ was more than hobby.

When Cheryl would come-up on something good she didn’t have to call me,
I’d hear her boisterous-stereo-lungs yelling “Yee Doggy.”

I’m from Dallas, Texas originally, and Cheryl was an implant.
Today I’m the guest in a foreign land and of good energy – I must vent.

Yee Doggy!

Today is Friday and this week has been quite the spinner.
From Monday to this very moment karma has been eating dinner.

Where are Cheryl and Bobby today? I miss them dearly.
She gave and received big energy like mine; thus she never feared me.

Folks:  Today is one of those days where the time is yours right now
to do what you want, say how you feel, and still be loved anyhow.

I love you.
Yee doggy!
Do you love me back?
Karma is a boomerang-girl eating more than a snack.
Did you see that?

Anytime is a good time to recognize your bad,
change your tone and be  a calibrated lad.

Gas, break. Gas, break. If you feel you have to.
Yee Doggy comes up when you find your groove.

Enjoy your life; you have the capacity to make it smooth.
I’m doing me and looking forward to you doing you.

Life is best when you live it in truth.
Don’t sacrifice your life for others who are not FOR you.

Be yourself. To rep someone else is to be funky.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Yee Doggy! Be a lover of your country.
