Sinking Long Before Helsinki

sinking_quicksand.gifYes, the ground has been unstable since the presidential race started;
unclear if Donald’s totality of morale and honesty had long departed.

Access Hollywood blamed Billy Bush for being socially pushy
in defending himself that he had nothing to do with Don’s quote,
Grab ’em by the pussy.”

Donald went on to become the Republican’s nominee.
They chose him as if it wouldn’t cost this country a huge fee.

The move is threatening to our democracy. It could… but it shouldn’t.
Don confirms his belief in Russia with the double-negative “don’t and wouldn’t.”

A strong man stands on his word
and is clear to be heard.

Therefore, Putin spoke his piece with clarity and no misunderstanding.
Don stood there like all in the world was lovely and fair;
the phrase “fire him now!” is increased; public demanding.

We’re restrained and sinking in quicksand.
Does not the branches of government independently stand?
I pray they get it together today because we could use a helping hand.

YES, WE CAN!

President 44 spoke on the state of our union yesterday morn.
Remarking that our way of politics is looking tattered and torn.

He‘s honest and he’s on it. Integrity? It’s a trait that he beholds.
I appreciate the sentiments but I’d like more for him to get us out of this hole.

“Ugh.” Is what my daughter always says, when something is waxing old,

Good Morning Monday

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on July 16, 2018 at 4:45 am

horse-bucks-rider.gifGood Morning Monday. All weekend long MSNBC rode a reliable pony
of facts that tack the Trump Campaign to colluding with Russian cronies.

Yep. It felt like a bad dream that kept being re-told.
Tho, the importance of rebroadcasting was to save America’s soul.

She’s killing herself with a 45 because she selectively isn’t woke.
Her skirt is up, others can see her butt,
and her coffers are going for broke.

Yes-yes! A well-cultured democracy is certainly best,
but will Helsinki find our rep with this cards too far from, his vest?

International eyes remain on the West
as we hoard-up our borders and mistreat refugee guests.

Our allies are worried –tho not as much as Americans should be.
My God, what in the world is happening to our democratic legacy?

Good morning Monday, did you hear me? Your democracy is at risk.
This is not a time to wrist-flick wrine and remark “Tsk-tsk-tsk.”

You are not Fish Mooney and this isn’t Gotham City,
still what’s happening to us at this hour is a remarkable pity.

Dancing-P-DiddyWhere is P-Diddy to Harlem-shake this off? Oh, he’s calling himself Love?
Well, where is Love, the productive Harlem thug?
This country needs a song to incite a wake-up hug.

Okay, truth be told, I’m just looking for a new jam.
Every day for the last year and a half I wake up to Morning Joe saying, “Damn!

morning-joe_lone anchor.gifClearly, I am paraphrasing
but every report seems to suggest that the admin is crazy.

Hm. Are you nodding off on me, Monday? There is no time to sleep.
That’s why MSNBC spent the entire weekend rebroadcasting from last week.

I get it and it still resembles a nightmare.
Good morning Monday, I’ve got caffeine to spare.

We have got to VOTE, people! Before it’s ever-loving too late.
Vote your interest and less for collages on Pinterest;
In our hands rests our fate.

Let’s not allow sleeping heads in Congress to sell our democracy away.
Rise up and become awake right now and remain woke every day.

Good morning Monday, I’m so glad that you’re here with me,

I Really Do Care

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on June 22, 2018 at 5:45 am
I care.jpg

Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) responded to first lady Melania Trump’s Thursday

About life, about love, about unity, and equality of compare —
things that mean a lot to me; things of which I Really Do Care.

I don’t know what made FLOTUS T. show up in Texas to yield comforting action
only to be seen later, at a couple of airports wearing unflattering fashion.

I Really Do Care that the world has to see us make such moves.
It’s emboldening the know that ‘America has lost her groove.’

Where’s Stella to give us some points?
We need some WD-40 lube for Lady Liberty’s joints.

She’s terribly stiff.
She stinks like this jacket – take a whiff:
Melania_Trumps_jacket_June21-2018.jpg

I mean, who wants to go-in on the first lady? Certainly, I don’t wanna.
Though I do remember during 44’s term, folks did go-in on Michelle Obama.

Michelle kept cutting edge women’s fashion nigh,
and when folks went low – FLOTUS O. went high.

I remember. Don’t you?
It’s who you wanted your kids to model and what you wanted them to do.

Yes. How well do I remember…
and then it got dark in 2016, November.

So where’s Stella, where’s our groove and how do we get out of this square?
I’m only asking because I hope our current vibe is just a masking and because I Really Do Care.

Hello! Can anyone hear me out there? I promise this is not a mundane racket!
And it’s too hot outside for me to be putting messages on a military jacket.

I know that there are protests planned all across the USA
to halt the Trump Policy of breaking-up families that’s currently in play.

Are you following the inhumane drama? Too bad it’s not scripted fiction.
And to the folks who are co-hoarding these kids; please revisit your fostering mission.

Please don’t give your consent and be a party to
breaking up families for a subsidy check or two.

This is the way that America broke up my familial ancestors of yesterday.
When I was 13, I learned that I had uncles that were stolen and sold as slaves.

This was told to me by my (then) beloved 90-year old Aunt Jake.
Therefore, I have no love for what I see the government doing today.

If you see someone struggling in strife and you have the opportunity to be there,
do something kind to help them out of the bind; do it because You Really Do Care.

Many of the children taken from their parents during this painful time of immigration nightmare
have been shipped off, without a proper record-log. WTF? I ask because I Really Do Care.

What now? The reconnection of so many looks so bleak.
Today they are in tents cities – tomorrow they’re in our streets.

Who’ll foot their life sustenance bill?
I do believe that our tax dollars will.

Who’ll complain that the system is working in the immigrant’s favor?
Republicans already have a message cued-up, resonating such savor.

What the administration is doing to our American principles isn’t fair.
There’s no pleasure in bringing this up, but I do so because I Really Do Care.

What will history say about our divisive stunt tomorrow?
I’m Qui
Praying for every family that’s torn apart. Please give God your sorrows.

Just like King Nebuchadnezzar retired to eating grass,
I do believe God will make his voice known and fast.

Gird yourself and your affairs accordingly.

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.

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!

News Peruse

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!

Monday Morning Rise

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Sports, TV Shows on February 5, 2018 at 5:29 am

newspaper-lady.jpgBetwixt the sheets and the down comforter on top
I slept quite well, dreamed deeply and drooled alot.

Good morning Monday, I slept until 4:30.
Beginnings at their best – watching the sun crest,
with opportunity I’m always flirty.

At this very moment I’m batting my eye lashes at you.
The day is early, dear Monday. What ever will we do?

Me?  Absolutely yes! I am definitely in the mood.
Aunt Stella started something and now I’m in a groove.

But it’s not quite that mono y mono touch that’s known to make a gal drool.
I tell you, Monday, everyday is a fun day; I can’t get enough of school.

You ever have a ‘jones that not too many people understood why or how?
Well call me the milk lady because I’m exposing the cash cow

to obtain a degree of science that I know will lead to new births.
When it comes to honing a picky diet, let education be my girth.

Let it increase my lobe capacity and shape both halves with a wealth of sum.
God bless me as I eat the curriculum of this degree. God bless my cerebellum.

I couldn’t help but to get up early, I anticipate the Monday Morning Rise.
I’ve got to attend lecture class – it’s always a blast.
New info is always a welcoming surprise.

Did you see Bill Maher last Friday night?
It was almost a Frum vs. The Mooch fight.

David was on panel with Bill and Donna Brazile
and before Anthony Scaramucci joined, the vibe was chill.

Though once The Mooch took his seat,
I won’t lie, he faced quite a bit of a heat.

bill_maher_frum_the_mooch

The Friday Night Fight

First of all, the audience members booed him as he walked to join the set.
I reckon it’s something about his last job association that folks can’t forget?

I don’t know, and still it really doesn’t matter.
The Mooch and I don’t see eye-to-eye, but I can stand his chatter.

I see his angle and he’s cool. I ain’t mad.
But David Frum embodied the spirit of my dad –

David was a verbal noose for the Mooch on Friday night.
I was wondering if you’re still rocking HBO? Because we’re still tight.

DirecTV and me… we’re alright. I keep coming back for mo.’
I’m up right now sipping and half listen to Morning Joe.

If you’re wondering why I keep dipping in on them —
it’s because I’m concerned about the way the country is being hemmed.

I take all political news with a grain of salt.
I laugh and raise a brow — but my good day is not up for halt

so I keep it moving.
I may even get online and do a little AP News perusing.

I’m still in bed.
This monologue is straight from the head.

This moment is for you and me and our capacity of no limits under the skies,
I’m Qui
Excited about life, opportunity, WE and of course a good Monday Morning Rise.

What are you up for today?

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,

happy-morning-modelGood morning Monday. I slept like a baby; no chatty dome.
I was up early sipping jo and feeling girly in my serene home.

I’m a homegirl by DNA – I’m sure. Meaning, I enjoy being domicile.
I marinate in my own place and emerge in the public with a refreshing smile.

It’s worth it and ooo child! If everyone caught on to ‘this way,’
there’d be a lot more transit smiles and more hand waves.
There’d be less bird-flipping and more safe driving engaged.
We might even get into mindful thinking and end senseless road rage.

We might.
I do love the evolution of life.

It’s time to do it again.
The last evolution brought Trump and Putin in.

Good morning Monday, mayhem ain’t your friend.
Hating anyone in your heart (overt or covert) is a sin.

There’s another white supremacist rally is planned for Charlottesville.
They’ve put out their own PR. Their use of gall is unreal.

Unity is in a bad place; though there’s still time to heal.
Hate is easily washed away if you let the love in your heart spill…

Peep this Mike…

Good morning Monday. We’re alive, life is good, hence,
Is there anyone among us who understands VP Pence?

He spent tax dollars flying from Cali to Indiana yesterday for the game
and decided to leave after some players took a knee – to emphasize “lame.”

Not “lame” as it pertains to how he feels about the players protesting for equal police protection and rights
but lame as in he and the prez used this stead to spread a little divisive light.

Pence then again, on the taxers payers dollar and dime
flew back to the West Coast to Vegas grind.

I’m sure he wasn’t hitting the casino’s but he is on a gamble.
He’s playing a game with the American dollar. Something we can’t handle.

Obviously. Right?
Ask Tom Price about those flights…

Alright. That’s enough.
Life for those in power is pretty rough.

Though Bob Corker has shown big guts!
He’s been calling the prez’s tiny twitter bluffs.

I’m praying that we’ll all be okay; for the future, I want to see her.

I’m gonna start this piece about
with a few SHOUT OUTS:

  • Bless the woman who raised ya, Ken Frazier. You’re no scavenger, no scoundrel.
    You did the right thing by resigning from the presidents council.

As did the corporate giants that followed the moves that you birthed,
even though they escaped denounciation on Twitter like you and Merk.

trump_tweets-ken-frazier-merk

Once you guys started filing out of council the commander in chief went on a tangent
and insisted he doesn’t need you guys anyway and dismantled both the panels.

  • I’m not much for condemning, I’m not the judge nor a noble friar,
    Though the ultimate sacrifice was made by the late Heather Heyer.
  • Heather wasn’t the only one that lost her life,
    there were 2 officers on patrol who were  killed in flight.
  • De’Andre Harris is currently recovering from critical injuries to his throat.
    He was beaten relentlessly by white supremacists with weapon-turned flag poles.

God bless all souls that reside in turmoil.
What are you fighting over? An asset nor soil?

Why the hate rupturing boils? Unto others you should do…
Karma is real and always comes back for you.

Always.

That’s why it’s important to highlight the good
And relate to our neighbors in a myriad of hoods.

Heather Heyer’s mother is the hero this week.
I stopped all that I was doing to hear her speak

at Heathers memorial a few days ago.
Mom said ‘THIS MOMENT WILL COUNT‘ if her daughter has to go.

My heart goes out to her, things are forever changed.
The least I can do
is publish her daughters name:
