IRRESPONSIBLE MFG & MKTG

Think about it…

Our landfills are filled to the max and recycling “all things” isn’t quite as effective yet.

So, why are we a country of consumers who stack the deck
on any thing brand new that we can get?

A new car? You can have it, but what will you or the manufacturer do with the old one?
Recycling isn’t in the picture when we are so often feeling entitled and forever young.

How old are you? Sure, being young is indeed a state of mind,
so is being thoughtful towards Earth, yourself/mankind.

A new house? Old neighborhoods are abandoned for the new.
Builders are responsible for erecting residences for me and you.

They are hoping that you’ll be open to upgrade and bid your current one adieu.
But builders aren’t magicians; recycling houses should be in our purview.

I know what you’re thinking: “homes are recycled” because you have moved ump-teeth times.
Homes are not recyclable. We live in a system that needs to be looked at and redefined.

Homeownership erodes in neighborhoods that are 7-8 families removed from the original builder.
Reminding me of how we arrived at this place of impoverished standards; though, each new fam can be a healer

with an understanding in mind and a long-term vision for the future.
Passing down eroding structures equates to a wound – not a suture.

We, the people should utilize mindfulness via our individ & collective domes.
Let us give deeper thought to re-upping those earbuds and cell phones.

Phones do not render us transportation nor a place to live.
Though, when it comes to emitting radiation to your head, they do give.

So when a new phone hits the market, you often consider dropping the one that you have.
Are phones recyclable? Research before yielding a premature laugh.

THEY ARE NOT recyclable but they should be.
Is it asking too much to get manufacturers to agree?

What is the expiration date for any technological thing?
If marriage engagements don’t work, we just give back the ring.

It’s futile to hoard old cell phones and stack them up.
That practice is for legacy heirloom metals and diamond cuts.

If the jewel isn’t returnable, we opt to regift it or melt it down.
We mold it into a bar or another accessory; but we don’t abandon the crown.

Do we really have to have it?

Jewelry isn’t the only valuable commodity that deserves long term thought.
Whatever happened to that old car, home, television, and phone that you bought?

This issue is not solely yours; though your thoughts on resolution are requested like hire.
Responsible manufacturing already exists in some markets – we actively recycle tires.

Would it be too much to dismantle an old home and reclaim the wood?
Would recycling old cellphones do our atmosphere any collective good?

Absolutely. If only we could arrive at recycling being easy and done on a whim.
There are so many products that we insist on upgrading but are not recycling them.

Manufacturers are making products-upon-products with no path to recycle.
We must hold them accountable; lets live a “FULL LIFE” – not a “life-full.”

No RECYCLING yet, but a few REPURPOSING ideas

A life full of old products that we just walked away from.
Thoughtfulness starts with you. Upgrading is supposed to be fun.

Not tethering us all to dated manufacturing ideas.
IRRESPONSIBLE MFG & MKTG is a present issue – for real.

Are you so busy shopping that you have given it no thought?
What “thanks”  have mfg’s given to you for the upgrades that you have bought?

No national trade-in programs or money-back for upgrades.
Must we be loyal to Earths accelerated degrade?

Law insists that we pay a trash collection tax, inspect our cars and pay our utility bills.
Why aren’t we holding manufacturing and marketers to same “responsibility” feel?

The world is full of old NEW stuff and we need help with “the discard.”
Let’s appeal to manufacturers and marketers and not just to the Lord.

Praying for a miracle? Fine. But we need no supernatural dash,
just a few recycling programs to help reduce the loyal customer’s trash.

If manufacturers and marketers want the people – at large, to support…
We must demand they help us out on recycling their specific sort.

Consumers cannot do it alone.
Lest they be more thoughtful and not get that new phone.

T’is a workable solution; a solution that I actually like,
I’m Qui
IRRESPONSIBLE MFG & MKTG exists because “excessive want” is ruling our lives.

Honestly, we can’t afford a trashed Earth; it’s time to consider ye ol’
DO NOT BUY.”

Tuned-In to Thursday

Mindful Living

Good morning sweetheart. Good morning to you.
You’ve certainly crossed my mind a time or two.

So much so, that I’m hitting you up
to say “I missed your touch on yesterdays hump.”

img_7352-1

Let’s hug, cheek-kiss and do the bump.
I’m pretty hype this morning – up shaking my rump.

I’m doing aerobics in the cut, the week has been good.
To write is my testimony. I’m telling it in your hood.

I appreciate you for taking the time to stop by and read it.
And if you’re living mindful– I’m extolled that you’d heed it.

As you live mindful on all fronts, your actions will “seed it.”
The hungry eat what you serve. Go ahead and feed it.

Shovel out the love, the compassion and understanding that you have.
If bold should test you – it could never arrest you,
so remain positive and laugh.

Tuned-In to Thursday leads way to be thoughtful.
To miss an opportunity to think of someone else should feel awful.

Perhaps your response to me would be, “Folks aren’t thoughtful on my behalf!”
I’d respond, “Change starts with you, look through those folks and just laugh.”

You have to — that is if you want to realize your God-truths.
The God in you does not lie in treating others as they treat you.

Think it through on this Thursday. Mindful thinking, do tune in.
You’ll find you are your biggest hurdle and likewise, your biggest friend.

Resist all low frequencies. Resist the urge to pile on.
I’m Qui
Tuned-In to Thursday and praying you to be strong.

Respecting others despite their actions – on no level, is wrong.
Give it whirl. It may be rough – persevere. I believe it can catch on.

It’s coming from the top

Rolling downhill…

From the head to the tail; the top to the bottom
When it came to the brightest minds – Washington, DC got ’em.

That was then
before the 2016 WH win.

Citizens were trolling the streets and facebook alike
sporting bumper stickers and memes to VOTE for a lie.

The citizens who voted for Drumpf [Trump]
stand up and get off of your rump,

Proudly raise your hands so that we can all be reminded
the crap that we’re in — you voted for and co-signed it.

You got behind it: the lies and daily disgust —
and said “emails were certain hell;” its Drumpf or bust!

All credit goes to you ‘hand raiser.’ Remember you were happy to shout it!
The man in the WH is not well at all. What are you going to do about it?

I’m asking you because he has no idea how to run the Government, how to console Gold Star families or cut one tax.
He’s in there picking his nose and stretching his throat, not governing but taking twitter to task.

I digress and pass on painting a bigger picture. T’is not my favorite.
Though my heart is still broken for the widow of Sgt. LaDavid.

myeshia-johnson-says-goobye

Sgt. LaDavid Johnsons widow Myeshia Johnson

LaDavid Johnson’s wife, Myeshia is pregnant, heart broken and comprehension sour
She just has questions about LaDavid having been missing for 48-hours.

His body returned home, inside of a closed casket.
Myeshia wanted to see him, but got no answer when she asked it.

It’s unfortunate that this soldier’s family is on blast like that
and it doesn’t help that the prez is divisive and that the Johnsons are black.

It’s just not a good look. It looks like disrespect on one side.
It looks like Myeshia is a Gold Star family member – LaDavid lost his life.

It’s what it looks like — and she’s carrying new life. I call that “legacy word.”
It looks like she’s going to have a world-of-a-story to share with her pending boy or girl.

Fall is in the air
it’s in my hair —
I prefer things to be fairer than they are.

I like life so much,
I’ve calibrated my own touch
I’m #MindfullyLiving and leading the charge.

Are you mindful of what you’re doing everyday? Are you mindful of your life?
Is your mind really strong, can you tell right from wrong? How do you feel about lies?

Ask yourself some basic questions then calibrate, meditate and pray.
I really need your good energy and help to overcome what’s happening today.

The N. Koreans are pissed, the Paris Accord was so yesterday and we are not done shifting lack —
The WH head is ready to put us in the red as he hangs job stability in lieu to cut tax.

Again, Drumpf supporters where are you now?
Are you in the middle class? Lock up the family cow.

cash-cow-dollar-cut-out.jpgIs your milk stored in a 401K, wallstreet or in an account?
Less than $1000 dollars is the average Americans savings amount.

Again, Drumf supporters where are you today?
You removed the bumber stickers from your car? What?! Hey!

I’m not laying in on you – no need to feel ashamed
if you’re ready to get off your hind parts and get back in the game.

The head of the WH is not well and appears quite lame.
He’s making America into something unrecognizable and strange.

Me? I’m just chronicling about it,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Wake-up! Wake-up! I’m trying to shout it.
