The Uproarious Laughter…

The MagicRealist.com

“The Uproarious Laughter…” The thing to evoke
From the pit of man’s dark bowel devolved from his heart.
It’s a mean, stinking laughter that cuts to the core
Of my being. Until now, I cannot ignore
My most lucid nightmare. People tear me apart
Led by that which delivers my pain as a joke.

I remember that laughter. I’ve heard it before
On the playground surrounded by nasty white boys
Taking pleasure in letting me know beyond doubt
I was different from them and that they carried clout.
It’s the gut wrenching laughter the sick one enjoys
As his gut remains tickled and eager for more.

It’s a stenchful child laughter directed with force
From the greed for entitlement and a safe bet
That deception and coverup shall ever reign.
The insane drunken laughter is seared in my brain.
It stirs up some deep anger. It’s hard to forget
Such a demonic laughter that shows no remorse.

Are we better than this or is this quite our lot?
This rhetorical query reports from the soul.
We could all be mistakes here. The dinosaurs were.
We may beg Mother Nature that she not concur.
We have been here a speck of time. What Is Our Goal?
In the scheme of things life here is our only shot.

Come Alive!

TheMagicRealist.com

A new life is upon us… a bundle divine.
There’s excitement and wonder with each coming step
As you find your way clumsily in a new world.
You are fully supported. Your fate is unfurled.
It won’t take long ‘til you’re filled with vigor and pep.
Once you pull it together, your newness will shine.

And along with the newness, there’s always some pain.
But for all, there’s more pleasure in life as a whole.
Things that aren’t done are done now because you are here.
They are done not in pretense nor resident fear
That an act done in carelessness may cast the soul
In a state of remorse. Such a fear is insane.

We may crawl on the floor now and act like a clown
Even if we are old and the flesh may be weak.
Your new life brings fulfillment and reason to play
Which had been for a long time not part of our day.
Nothing other than pleasure is all that we seek
And the new playful teacher will not let us down.

We have not much to teach you. Your soul is your guide
As you mingle among us. We owe much to you
For your gift of pure life essence. All we can teach
Is what’s not worked well for us despite what we preach.
You remind us completely that we’re alive too.
That is why our young teachers do bring us much pride.

Phallic Meltdown

TheMagicRealist.com

I’m a man. I am proud of that, and I should be
For no reason particular. Maybe because
Men are strong and in power. Is that how it seems?
Rather than be blind sighted, turn on the high beams
So that traffic oncoming is lost in the laws.
I’m a driver. I know that. I wish I could see.

Men can sometimes be assholes, but always we’re dicks.
It is true to our nature to pound and to thrust
What has caused us arousal, often on demand.
Would life improve for all if men could understand
Where the women are coming from with their disgust?
When they speak to us, it seems they’re dealing with bricks.

Women will light the dick candle now having seen
That no woman is safe from abuse, then attack
By the sharks of the media and lawful men.
May we melt into meaningfulness once again?
When our parts become waxen and light do we lack,
Then our time is upon us. None will intervene.

Is Responsibility A Bondage?

I was once a young sailor. I did it for fun
At the start. It became then a means to survive
And provide for a family. So, this was life.
In a few months I’m blessed with four kids and a wife.
If I’m bonded to sea life, that should not deprive
Those affected by my choices of life begun.

But, it did. Time has passed now. I’m safer inland
To respond to life other most wholeheartedly.
To respond is not bondage to pent up desire.
The responsible one is one who will aspire
To what may look like bondage to those who don’t see
Life as binding by nature, perhaps as was planned.

Though, I could not plan life in the way it’s evolved.
Each new moment brings new choices, also the chance
I may make them in error. Still I must respond
To experience. There is no bondage beyond
What I make of an otherwise good circumstance.
There will come a time proper when all is resolved.

Leave It Alone

TheMagicRealist.com

Who can do anything better than I can do?
And to whom would it matter… the one who’s in need
Of some sense of divinity among his own?
Some good counsel for me would be: Leave It Alone!
One can start a religion if one has a creed,
But it has not much meaning to me or to you…

…Nor to any huge fan base unless there’s exchange
On some level that indicates we all belong.
If one offers a blessing, do not take his hand
To your head in the hope that you will understand
The value of a blessing and rightness from wrong.
Good can turn into bad, or at best, somewhat strange.

A feeling of inclusiveness straight from the heart
Generates spontaneity for a kind act.
Tenderness in the moment is not a decree
Yet it is for too many a commodity.
When giving and receiving become a contract,
We may hope to get closer, but we stay apart.

Marx And Communism

TheMagicRealist.com

There are rich folk and poor… There are those in between
In most free market systems. The economy,
As a network, responds to all systems the same.
If I don’t have enough, I alone am to blame.
I can’t rely on others to take care of me
And Big Brother is easier heard than is seen.

Rich and poor, black and white… ac/dc are ways
That I choose to perceive life and society.
That is core to my programming and of this land
Apprehended from Native folk by savage hand.
To fully comprehend Marxist philosophy
Is to take the sick mind through an alternate maze.

One who has an idea may think it’s the best.
And it may be for robots, but not flesh and blood.
If to know human nature is part of the plan,
We know then that charity makes folks feel ‘less than.’
Thoughts of wealth generation do bring on a flood
Of specific behaviors that irk the oppressed.

Neither system is perfect nor is one more right.
Either one or the other if chosen can be
As an escort to solace or utter despair.
And whatever my circumstance, others do care.
That I know that I’m wealthy most inner mostly
Is a blessing to deal with to my heart’s delight.

Schidtfaced

TheMagicRealist.com

To be born and be human, one must have a name
And it is something given. We have not the choice
In which ones we will take as we make our way here.
If some knew what was coming, they would come in fear
That the names they are given might make people voice
Their obnoxious remarks, though benign just the same.

Linking faces to names… That’s what folks like to do.
It’s the best way to keep track of people we know.
A good face then can have a bad name, just as well
As the mug that resembles the bat out of hell
Can be blessed with a pretty name – one that does flow
From the lips like a butterfly… or honeydew.

If your name is a cumbersome one, it may be
That you also break mirrors remotely with ease.
One who has both these assets is lethal at best
And at worst a mere scapegoat that most would detest.
A good name with a good face may quite often please.
Names are not really faces, we all can agree.

Kanye Way

TheMagicRealist.com

Along with some Shinola, fresh bullshit will do
For a dick of pig leather, to give it some show…
And yourself in the process. Two dicks make a pair.
FLOTUS shouldn’t care much for this odd assed affair
But some wonder just how far this Shoe Shine will go.
You’re a playwright creative with plot far askew.

Every act has a motive. All scenes play a part
In the general mood of all as they perform.
So, one black feels like “superman” due to white dick??
Most of blacks that I know think you lay it on thick.
‘Simon’ shows blacks have big lips, and that is the norm,
But to use them as you do brings hurt to the heart.

It is clear that our POTUS likes men who are strong
In the ways that most dictators often display.
So perhaps he likes pimps too because they are crude
And abrasive toward others with their attitude.
Does the POTUS plantation perhaps give you pay?
Many scratching their heads know that something is wrong.

I don’t know much about you. The same earth we share.
That it has enough room to keep us far apart
In this physical plane is a blessing to me.
There is freedom to think upon your slavery.
When a young black naïve one sucks off an old fart
It makes those who’ve seen dignity cringe in despair.

From Which Well Doth Hell Speweth?

TheMagicRealist.com

Why to stay harder longer should make sense to me
Or should have some scant meaning to parts that I know
That know nothing of woe for not having retired
From a lifetime of work erotically inspired…
I cannot figure out. And this all goes to show
That Big Brother and TMI seem to agree.

Who the hell are they talking to thinking it’s me?
There must be a statistic to guide their campaign.
They will greet on my birthday and many days hence.
When I’m caught live on line, the ads can get intense.
It is not all that personal. I must refrain
From becoming too bothered by things that I see.

I need no bride from Russia nor Rolex device.
That may be because I’m not the one who they think
Pays attention to not much beyond what he sees.
They may spew as they wish. I will do as I please
And not be too resentful I’ll come to the brink
Of a backlash vociferous and not too nice.

Multi-Bean Pleistocene Bison Spleen Stew

TheMagicRealist.com

The best part of the bison indeed is the spleen
And the Pleistocene bison has one that is old.
Good gets better with age. How I wish it were true
All across the time spectrum, but that’s nothing new.
All I want for right now is to kindly be told
Where to go for some noteworthy bison cuisine.

I like Multi-Bean Pleistocene Bison Spleen Stew.
It’s gestalt to the gizzard. It dons the ribcage
With a cloak of endearment to utter nonsense.
It puts chest on one’s hair perhaps at one’s expense.
There is nothing that my silliness won’t engage
Even if my behavior is but for the few.

And cooked in with my bison stew there must be beans
In varieties plentiful for the best bowl.
I can be nice to bison spleen by marinade
Then when it’s fully stained pungency will pervade
Through the consciousness with only play as the goal.
Sometimes digestion favors peculiar proteins.

Dead Language

TheMagicRealist.com

Why it’s called a dead language becomes grossly clear.
I must be dead to use it, and have it use me.
It did fall and has risen… this Roman empire
Though I’ll not call it wholly a truth rectifier.
It’s a speech of deception most arguably.
That is due to its nature to promulgate fear.

A big company must have a tight justice scheme.
In a two-party system, this works very well.
Each will speak his dead tongue as the other will wince.
Nothing ever translates but the need to convince
All the parties of relevance how to make hell
Something all can get used to, somewhat like a dream.

But it turns to a nightmare. Straight up the old crack
Of our binary system, unlike souls repel.
But outside is where I dwell. If death would have lost,
G.O.P. would blast FBI and at all cost.
Registration of right wings would triple as well.
Carpe Diem! Next month there should be some payback.

Please Die, Old Men.

You old men are my brothers in age and in ways.
It’s a shame that you mirror me. I do lay blame
On myself for ignoring the stench of my time
Indicated by hatred and well-ordered crime.
Old white men when in leadership are much the same
And they’ll honor that sameness ‘til their dying days.

The mere sight of you sickens me quickly by now
So I have learned a lesson important in life:
There’s no sense in expecting that truth will unfold.
We The People rely on whatever we’re told.
When to fathom your souls causes me mental strife,
Then it’s way past the time that this world should allow.

Get the Hell off God’s green earth, you nasty old men!
Drag your sick hags behind you to your waiting graves.
I don’t care if you go first or I do, just so
You are barred from my consciousness. Drop dead and go
To the nether dimension. How my heart behaves
Reflects how much I’ve wasted again and again.

There’s no justice… no honor, nor fair due process
Meant to deal with the raw truth until you are gone.
You’re a withered old structure in body and mind.
To return to the dust soon would be awfully kind.
It’s the young who are here now who must carry on.
As we old bastards die off, the world suffers less.

The Book Of Simon

TheMagicRealist.com

There’s a book about Simon. It is tree bark bound.
Though I have never seen it, it seems to be real
Because what it is full of is every command
Wish or quizzical whim whether sudden or planned
That a person could think of. It finds great appeal
Among those who run leadership into the ground.

Simon says I’m a citizen of this great land.
So be it! I will do that. No problem with me.
But if Simon should tell me that bad folks are good,
That tells me to do nothing. Who would say I should?
Since I’ve never met Simon, I cannot agree
That he has my best interest as part of his plan.

Those who know all about Simon play his game well.
I do not run for office. I bark at our law!
Justice is silly putty. Can this Simon see?
It is reshaped the way one would want it to be.
Simon says that the shady one has not a flaw.
That is not a commandment. My conscience can tell.

Taking Sides

TheMagicRealist.com

I don’t care for the main course. I tend to take sides.
It’s because I’m American. That is our way.
Many people take one side. Some take none at all.
They are chastised for doing so, but that’s their call.
Of the sides made available at the buffet,
There is only ill process to act as our guides.

Can we fault human nature for finding its way?
When a child falls and skins its knee, it’s no big deal
To the wise loving parent, but to the hurt child
It’s a horrid event not to be reconciled.
There’s no parent apparent. There’s no decent meal.
And most hurt boys decide to act mean when they play.

Chromosomes can be tribal, yet they’re much the same.
They are meant to pair off and divide, as they do,
And to separate, each group to its destined side.
But they were once together and quite satisfied.
What we have is a system that has a loose screw.
To digest what is chosen is done so in shame.

It’s a sham. It’s a circus… and all that’s been said
Of a drama demonic with virulent hold
On the minds of a populous sick to the core
In a state of mitosis and new civil war.
Much that goes on in secret will never be told.
Taking sides is a process encumbered by dread.

By The Way

TheMagicRealist.com

By The Way, there is no news occurring right now.
There’s a recurring respite from running the race.
There is time to recover what living has lost.
By the way I perceive, I’ll recover the cost
Of believing that in this world I have a place.
It’s the way toward contentment if I but allow.

By The Way, I feel freshness in life-infused air…
A far cry from the chaos prepared as a gift
From our sponsors. They keep us too grossly informed.
When the news starts to age, they will serve it lukewarmed.
Rather than entertainment, I need a damned shift
And a place I can go to that no one will share.

There is peace By The Way as it is in the heart
And wherever the centered self happens to be.
Every way can be helpful in shedding some light
Upon how well I’m doing and feeling despite
What may seem to be happening most vividly.
By The Way, I can always go for a fresh start.

Don’t Fret

TheMagicRealist.com

I don’t play the guitar, but at least I don’t fret.
If I wanted to learn how to play one I would.
There are plenty guitar stores and people to teach
A worthy word technician prolific in speech
How to master the six-string. Perhaps I’d feel good
If I gave a performance that none would forget.

Good musicians don’t fret when there’s hard work to do.
They will take up their instruments and go to task
With due diligence until they’ve learned to play well.
If they make a mistake, not too many can tell.
Enough time for much practice is all that I ask.
There is much here to play about. Fame may ensue.

There’s one thing about fretting not fretting the neck
Of the beast that I make of life. How can I play
Everyday as in instrument crafted by me?
Having no expectation, I think, is the key.
Can I make my own music and play my own way?
Simply, it is a way to keep passions in check.

Lying Star Choir

TheMagicRealist.com

We mistreat a fine angel who walks upon earth
By not seeing he’s perfect in every which way.
He’s a nice guy… mild-mannered and with a cool head
Meant to judge with a heart that is rooted in dread.
Did our battered choir boy throw a tantrum today?
Is the innocent girl coach deficient in mirth?

If a judge on an interview acts like a ‘bitch’
And she’s female, her ass would be escorted out
To ensure that none present are exposed to harm.
When a male does, it more so should sound an alarm.
What has given this white man protection from doubt?
Why has such mundane business become a sales pitch?

Should The Court be a choir? In one way it should.
We The People are one voice of manifold tone.
And The Court can reflect that. No voice should be loud.
To our system of justice all can be avowed.
In some time a star liar will fall from his throne.
Even with confirmation the outlook is good.

Talking Heads

TheMagicRealist.com

Talking heads talk to talking heads throughout the day
About all that is newsworthy. People must know
Every detail of tragedy as it takes place.
Media will abuse you and shout in your face
Just to get the damned story to air on their show
Before anyone else does. Why is this our way?

Talking heads are paid big bucks to say what they say
Because they have been saying things for a long time.
They are qualified heads… some with talking degrees
And with egos attuned to sharp shooting the breeze
Yet, without common decency, talk is a crime.
It helps keep women silent and truth locked away.

I don’t want to come forward. I’m not made of steel.
Neither are my young children and our privacy.
I can’t count on our congress to safeguard my word.
If the FBI checks things, why is that absurd?
Trust and faith in my system is quite hard for me
And my strong sense of duty reflects how I feel.

Heart Decay

TheMagicRealist.com

Hide behind the fine children and dutiful wife.
That’s how most play the card game of optics these days.
Your damned daughters and spouse cannot make you look good.
That they are not the applicant is understood
Well by everyone. Is your intent to amaze
And parlay for that justice position for life?

What they’re hiding I would not allow in my yard.
I’ve respect for the bugs and worms who slither there.
Any privileged white boy who learns how to lie
Can grow up to be SCOTUS. Do give it a try.
If your views about women do make you unfair,
It is only too right if we push back, and hard.

One can diagnose heart decay in your background
Whether seen by the good doctor or tarot deck
Or by members of congress who are themselves ill.
Men can make women suffer and get a sick thrill.
A frat boy in a robe is one lethal redneck.
We The People insist something better be found.

Women are coming forward. Man can be The Beast.
This is known by all women who have been abused.
I’d assume there are many who linger in pain
As they know coming forward invites the insane.
When some Old White Man calls an accuser ‘confused’
Then we’ve not learned our lessons… no, not in the least!

Look At Everything The Way It Is

TheMagicRealist.com

Do I decorate raw truth to improve its looks?
There’s a reason expressions of color take hold
And reshape my mind as if it were softened clay.
Using adjectives is what folks do every day.
Much of discourse is bullshit without the blindfold.
It will pass as nonfiction, so people write books.

 Two friends met after twenty years being apart.
One declared to the other, “I’m doing quite well.
I’ve a Mansion in Meaningville and a mink stole.”
Said the other, “That’s Wonderful!” That is her role

Because she went to charm school. She is trained to tell
Everyone things are ‘wonderful’ right from the start.

Whether mountain or mole hill, they both are the same
Through the lens of reality and nothing more
Than the will to see clearly all things as they are.
One big challenge in life is to not to stray far
From what I am observing. Is this such a chore?
If I am misperceiving things, I am to blame.

How To Succeed

TheMagicRealist.com

There are two basic forces at play within me.
One is self-preservation – the need to build walls
To keep that which is not self from taking what’s mine.
Separation is useful. In it I define
A safe structure. The ego self rarely recalls
Where it last left its faith in things that it can’t see.

At the same time, expansion does motivate me.
I must break through the walls that define who I am.
This does seem rather opposite, yet it is fact.
They’re two sides of the same coin with meaning intact.
To detach from what’s limited is a program
I would do well to follow and most faithfully.

To succeed is to balance these two forces well.
Walls are built to be broken then built up again
And again until all involved come to some sense
That there’s no movement forward with all the expense.
I can say I’m successful, and truthfully, when
I can grow far beyond self, yet within self dwell.

Father And Son

TheMagicRealist.com

Family is like the mafia. It is a crime
When, organically, we’ve cut a deal to be here.
Family should remain loyal. Blood ties should be strong.
When we outgrow biology, we get along
Much more amicably with the ones we hold dear
And our moments together will endure through time.

Pledge allegiance to one’s own. Is this nature’s rule?
It is true, and it limits all that I can be
If I give it importance that it can’t deserve.
If my guidance is wanting, does that strike a nerve
In the pit of my being? Most regrettably,
If I claimed to be worthy, I would be a fool.

Man must have a young buddy to carry his name…
Someone he can be tough with and tender as well.
Often times there is friction as he comes of age.
When he must outperform you he’ll find his own stage.
As the decades march forward warm stories they’ll tell.
I do learn this in hindsight and feel little shame.

Don’t Believe, Don’t Disbelieve

TheMagicRealist.com

Will I be born again? Have I been here before?
These are questions I could ask, or I could care not.
My keen eyes don’t have vision. It’s me who’s inside,
Just as windows can see things. It’s they who reside
Squarely on one side of them. Is this what is taught?
How I wish this were so. Then we’d suffer no more.

I know I’m not my body. It is loaned to me
By the Mother of all matter born of this place.
When the loan time expires, I will pay it back.
She’s the best at collection. She keeps perfect track
Of all molecules managed in her time and space.
I exist to incur the loan most frequently.

This is only a story to those who have not
Had the kinds of experience to offer claim.
Don’t believe in the story if it makes no sense.
But don’t disbelieve either for your own defense.
To consider what’s said to you is not a shame.
Wise is one who observes and is open in thought.

Children And Teachers

TheMagicRealist.com

‘It’s a living.’ Some conclude that this is the case
As they try to make ends meet and pay off their loans.
It is stressful to work eighty hours per week
When their students’ wellbeing is all that they seek.
The most effective teacher is someone who owns
That our young are most valuable to the whole race.

It should not be ‘a living,’ yet we make it so
Through glitches in the systems that lock teachers out.
Education/Production… They both are the same
To the bodies that rule in the financial game.
Children should be what child-rearing is all about.
Teachers’ pay should reflect that for all that they know.

Does this make too much sense? Is this why it’s not done?
Something must be amiss in our handling of things.
If we had volunteer teachers, would that bode well?
They should have wealth already so in calm they dwell.
If we can’t treat our children as if we were kings
We should not welcome them until growth has begun.

Being Human Is Super

TheMagicRealist.com

Do I like being human? The question is moot.
Sometimes I feel like Superman; sometimes I’m weak
With my grip on reality. Nevertheless,
I delight in the wonder that I may express
Without effort. There’s no sense in my feeling meek,
As my writing, at times, can seem rather astute.

But is this an illusion? It’s human, at least,
To believe I control things to mitigate fear.
I can make it my costume and face the stiff wind,
Then hope that my identity is not chagrined.
When it’s found I’m no hero, will my fans still cheer?
When in tune with my nature, is my fame increased?

If I learn how to manage my thinking and heart,
Then I know that my actions are taken care of.
If I can do all this, then I can stroll through hell,
And find it of scant interest, but no place to dwell.
Humans are possibilities to express love.
Thinking ‘I’m only human’ is not thinking smart.

A Sweet Relationship

TheMagicRealist.com

There is sweetness and bitterness carefully mixed
In a strong psychic potion that makes the heart glow.
It begins rather physical. Senses behold
Possibility for chemistry to unfold.
Those in tune with their natures cause blessings to flow.
When in each other’s presence the two are transfixed.

One cannot extract sweetness from some other soul.
If you place such a burden on someone you love
Then resentment will fester until such a time
That it comes to the surface where it will begrime
What had once been as pure as the white turtle dove.
Those who tend to be needy cannot meet their goal.

Your expression of joy is your best loving gift
To your partner, deserving of all who you are.
Sweetness comes from the inside when one feels alive.
If two lovers can know this true love will survive.
When in wholesome commitment, no dream is too far.
Both will have but the will and the joy to uplift.

Solicitors, Knock At Your Risk

TheMagicRealist.com

I’m not running for office and neither are you.
And I know you don’t think this is Beverly Hills.
I don’t need my damned soul saved. It’s doing just fine.
You’re a fool if you think I don’t know the divine.
Most professional pests seem to get their cheap thrills
With their in-your-face tactics and hullabaloo.

My FICO score isn’t at mark of the beast
And that’s none of your business. Don’t patronize me
With your slick condescension. I hear very well
Hidden language that lurks where the sea plankton dwell.
Just because I exist you won’t charge me a fee.
Those who prey on the poor see their profits increased.

I don’t need my damned lawn mowed, dear neighbor of mine.
Your con game is as thick as the prick in the suit.
Keep your eyes off my yard and my yard off your mind.
Your kind gardening guidance is of your behind.
When to all I’m considered a tree bearing fruit
I’ll assume all are hostile rather than benign.

The Service

TheMagicRealist.com

Who avails of The Service? Look at the bell curve,
With many at the center and few at the ends.
It’s not poor ones nor rich ones, but those in-between
Who partake of the process, because they have seen
What a burden new life is. On she it depends.
There’s demand for The Service and for those who serve.

It is all about sex lives, convenience and things
Others would judge as selfish and of barren heart.
But we scorn not the many. We lecture the poor
At one end of the spectrum. All they want is more
Just as anyone finding the need to depart
From unplanned deep commitment and all that it brings.

When you think of The Service, as this much is known,
Should there be a commitment to see with more light
Toward all women in general for who they are?
The whole question of ‘choice’ is one rather bizarre.
We may think that we know what is wrong and what’s right.
Take a look at the numbers and see what is shown.

World And Local Leaders

TheMagicRealist.com

The best folks aren’t in leadership. Is this the case?
And are we derelict in our putting them there?
Our democracy means each of us is the boss.
We’re the ones who have crafted a game of dice toss
Through our indolence or simply out of despair.
If we care not to vote, all are in a bad place.

That’s not all that we all can do. We can all act
As the HR department, collectively so.
The system does have instruments that we can use
To shape government according to our own views.
If a leader thinks he should rule, then he must go.
That is Our job assignment – not fiction, but fact!

It’s a two-party system we’ve put into place.
We have mixed oil and water as much as we can.
It is futilely feudal, our democracy,
When through party alignment we must disagree.
We can choose a good leader who has a good plan.
There is much about democracy to embrace.

How Important Is Thought?

TheMagicRealist.com

People sometimes complain I’m too much in my head.
This is true, and I know it. Is it a good thing?
Thinking is for engaging the physical plane.
If one goes far beyond that, he might go insane.
Nothing of existential value it can bring.
And when in search of wisdom, the mind is misled.

Too much value is placed on the thinking process.
Some old fart, way back when, said: I think; so, I am.
Well, he was, and he is now and shall ever be
But a fountainhead of Western philosophy.
Just because someone is, does the world give a damn?
We make much of our thinking the means to success.

Thinking can get addictive if it makes one high.
It has social significance. With other minds
One can start a big movement and trigger some change.
I am, so, I think, and this doesn’t sound strange.
I’m awash in deep feelings of various kinds,
And my thoughts are a small thing to help me get by.

If You Have A Child

TheMagicRealist.com

If you do have a child, life can sometimes get wild,
But it needn’t. Although there is lots of advice
From the many child specialists with all their books,
What cannot be expressed well, the book overlooks.
What determines if they will be naughty or nice
Is their own generation and times they have styled.

Much that you want to teach them, they already know
On an unconscious level. Most naturally
They will shy away from that which may cause them harm.
If mistakes are made, there is no cause for alarm.
Make the nest too well feathered, then they will not see
The potential within them to help them to grow.

Little children must know that ten fingers have they.
I would rather they’re taught how to use them instead.
Take you child out in nature and let him behold
All the wonder of life in its splendor untold.
Facts and figures are fanciful fluff for the head,
But they can, in fact, leave the mind in disarray.

Love your child when he knows not what you’ve taught him well.
He is not here to live your life nor work for you.
He will make his own path. You can’t point out his way.
You can fully support him in life, come what may.
To give loving acceptance is all you can do.
You have given him platform. His story he’ll tell.

One Who Feels Down And Out

TheMagicRealist.com

One who feels down and out as if squeezed through a spout
Of a sphincteric nature need not fret alone.
There are many who feel the same. And what they do
Is to find an escape hatch that they can crawl through.
Either that or they find a way to somehow own
Circumstantial fecality nestled in doubt.

 I look fine in the mirror, at least wearing clothes.
They obliterate nothing that gives me away.
How I feel is the question – not how others see.
I’m eternally grateful that I can be me.
If I feel like I’m lying in this that I say
Then there’s work to be done on myself, I suppose.

It’s another off day. I’m not feeling in sync
With the heart of the cosmos and neighbors and such.
This is not a big deal for me. It will soon pass.
I’ll respect the momentum of relative mass.
Comfort is in detachment and keeping in touch
With the part of oneself that one knows doesn’t stink.

Both Sides Now

TheMagicRealist.com

Dems protest our social ills.
The Grand Old Party thwarts their wills.
Divisive is one who instills contention day by day.
Most leaders promise change will come…
If not to most, at least, to some.
No change will come to lowlife scum if leaders have their way.
Who looks at change from both sides now?
I surely can’t. I’m thwarted somehow.
My own illusions are quite tall.
Perhaps I don’t know change at all.

Gut wrenching stories true to life
Expressed by people who know strife…
The disenchanted man and wife… Who yields unto their plea?
Not those who sit in places high.
Most human rights they would deny
If all in favor would comply with group insanity.
Who looks at hell from both sides now?
Who stews alone with sweat on his brow?
Will mad illusions brace his fall?
Right now, he knows not hell at all.

One’s nightmare is another’s dream.
Things rarely are quite as they seem.
Our system has embraced a scheme to undermine the deeds
Of he who has become insane.
I’d hope their efforts aren’t in vain.
Some look upon them with disdain, but stronger are the needs
Of those who have seen both sides now.
Tyranny we cannot allow.
What is most urgent is our call.
I really think there’s hope for all.

On The Creation Of ‘Vine’

TheMagicRealist.com

Now, it seems I’m a playwright. I’m having a blast!
And I’m proud of directing. It is my first time.
It’s been years since I’ve done this, and now, among friends,
We can craft good theater. Our success depends
Only on our believing we’re ready for prime.
People should take delight in a well-seasoned cast.

This is also my debut for acting a part
Whom I myself fashioned from somewhere in me.
Most of us act as flowers. My part is a Vine.
Somewhat odd in the garden, his heart is benign.
It’s a play to make flowers the powers that be
And to give true compassion a healthy jump-start.

Vine is absent his mind and seems one of a kind
Yet he needs to be noticed and ignored as well.
He does blend well, eventually, but not at first.
It may seem he may try things to see if he’s cursed.
We shall know that our message is clear as a bell.
Love is wholesome theater for those so inclined.

Acute Fear Of Failure

TheMagicRealist.com

Failure is an abstraction dependent on fear.
As it can be well crafted, it can be undone.
Before my self-undoing, I dare to swing high.
Should it be of concern that someday I will die?
Is there sense to one’s living if it’s not begun?
Would it matter had I something real to hold dear?

All of life is a steppingstone to only more
Of whatever I’ve held onto up until now.
I can alter the nowness, therefore, how I go
With my life without having to strut through a show.
I’ll act out my performance and then take a bow.
Within triumph and downfall there’s much to explore.

I’ll do well with my planning and setting my goal.
It’s a worthwhile activity to stay in shape.
But it’s also a huge hindrance to my soul growth.
Should my goal be to honor and integrate both?
It’s my self-condemnation I need to escape
And my gift of free will that I need to extol.

Righteous Nicety

TheMagicRealist.com

I will call you my sweetheart, but what’s in a name
When someone of sheer beauty defies such a thing?
Do not call me romantic. That is a name too,
For someone who is head over heels about you.
I’m not good at name calling. My true heart I bring
To my lover whom I hope will do just the same.

Just because it’s September, that hardly can mean
I can’t offer confection to my heart’s delight.
Noble knights do seek honor as currency for
The affections of fair maidens whom they adore.
I’ll respect you as equal, but it’s quite alright,
If you will, that I court you like on the big screen.

Let me love you, my darling, however I can.
If with flowers and chivalry, let it be known
That my love is as limitless as both are we.
Let us play our parts well, then in bliss we will be.
As two birds of a feather, forever we’ve flown.
We were meant for each other since being began.

How To End Poverty

TheMagicRealist.com

Poverty is of conscious perception of things
With the physical senses. This reality
I cannot take for granted. I can only know
What my five senses tell me to help me to grow.
Consciousness of the physical helps me to be
In a state of wellbeing and all that it brings.

Consciousness is of boundaries, solid and real.
My strong notion of ‘other’ is deeply ingrained.
And I cannot escape that. I think no one can.
It’s The tool of survival for woman and man.
Things that aren’t of the physical can’t be explained,
So we tend to mistrust them rather than to feel.

Feeling also is physical. It’s of the heart
Which also is a sense organ found in the soul.
It connects what is physical with what is not
So wellbeing of all life cannot be forgot.
What is good for each part is a gain for the whole.
A deep inner experience is where to start.

Over And Under The Weather

TheMagicRealist.com

To some, dark stormy weather, like women named Heather,
Provides somewhat mistily menacing thought.
We are meant to get over it, and when that’s done,
We are under the weather, and that isn’t fun.
Our most up and down movements are clearly self-taught.
We face challenge as we merge them altogether.

Again, movements are cycles, like weather patterns.
Each adheres to a rhythm unique to its own.
We can handle high amplitudes, both up and down.
When we’re under the weather, we do tend to frown.
We may think we would like to stay in the mid zone,
But remaining there too long will yield low returns.

It’s a pleasure to get over and under all
That we make without noticing most of the time.
We accumulate dark clouds, then whisk them away.
Life is made up of highs and lows throughout the day.
And from every low point we are willing to climb.
How we manage our weather is our only call.

It Happens Some Now Ago

TheMagicRealist.com

In an instant the world is, and I am as well
On the way toward no ending beginning with now.
There are things that take place in the now yet ahead.
They do happen before now. Nothing is misread.
My existence transcends what my mind can’t avow.
Whether past tense or pretense, my senses can’t tell.

Nowness is a wet fabric to velvet the gears
Of the cosmic machinery made to be known
By the senses and mind to be that which is real.
Within seas of perception there’s ample appeal
To decipher the cyclical until we’re shown
How to make sense of things and to conquer our fears.

So, this happens some now ago, as I partake
Of the presence around me. Some peace do I find
In the solace of mindfulness and a fresh start.
To engage with the nowness, do so from the heart.
Since there is but eternity, need we be kind?
It would seem wise to do so. Our souls are at stake.

Do I Know What I’m Doing?

TheMagicRealist.com

To deliver a sliver of Heisenberg diced
And prepared for a salad to tweak geek delight
Is no kind of existence to nurture one’s soul
Unless gain through the mundane is one’s only goal.
I can know where I am now, and that is alright,
But my rate of momentum becomes sacrificed.

Simply by the same token, when I’m on the run
About business and stress over time that remains,
I can’t know where I am ‘til I take time to think.
Yet as soon as I do that, my speed takes a blink.
If I knew both at once, I’d be freed from all chains.
Then I’d know what I’m doing… perhaps having fun.

It is tricky to know things that aren’t to be known
Because nature prevents me from breaking its code.
It’s not that I’m not sharp enough. It’s that I am
The same as my perceptions in this hologram.
I can approximate, when momentum is slowed,
Just about where I should be. That I can condone.

Venom

TheMagicRealist.com

Venom wants to dissolve things. It has its own drive,
But with hate delegated from whence it became.
It indeed has a consciousness and a strong will.
As it infiltrates, its only will is to kill.
Nature offers some creatures no feelings of shame
Most of life has one will which is to stay alive.

Clearly lethally liquid an army deployed
At the puncture point, it races through passageways,
Knowing full well what needs to be done by command
Of the beast who delivered it through its death gland.
Consciousness among humans can rightfully raise
Lest we beef up our biting and be soon destroyed.

Venom is quite intelligent. It knows the way
To affect vital organs and cause instant shock.
It will fight upon contact with any belief.
Its sole purpose in life is to sow bitter grief.
Would it help if one’s skin were of steel or of rock?
Maybe so, but the mind can’t be fearful of play.

Rectocephalic Dementia

TheMagicRealist.com

When one seeks legal counsel, look for a good mouse…
One who thinks he can bullshit his way past a cat.
He must be dumb and arrogant, piggish and mean,
And the grossest historian damned to be seen.
He should be managed well with the brain of a gnat
But kept clear of the pantry within the outhouse.

We all know that a stuffed mouse can kick a cat’s ass.
That is, if he is fool enough to think that way.
In his sick mind, he throws the cat balls of catnip.
But the cat, not indulgent, does not give a rip.
The loud mouse thinks that somehow he’ll make the cat’s day.
If that happened, the ass of the mouse would be grass.

But it is anyway. How this big cat will play
Is a mystery. He keeps his plan under hat.
How does once a good leader become what is now
A most derelict specimen, pseudo highbrow,
Who hits every news circuit for bogus chit chat
About issues of magnitude in a vague way?

You’re a mouse of the law with dentures meant to gnaw
At the heart of pure logic and plain common sense.
To demean the demented is not why I write.
But, you give lousy counsel. Your defense is trite.
My two cents are now offered here at your expense
As you pretend you’re willing to dodge a cat’s paw.

Ambition Is Relative

TheMagicRealist.com

Some reach higher; some, lower, and many do both.
Everyone has a path unique and custom made.
We build high down on paper, then up from the ground.
We may pray that our buildings become world renown.
Once we know what we’re doing, we’re made in the shade.
How we manage ambition determines our growth.

Some folks like to make molehills. They will do that well.
Many small hills make mountains. That big job is done
By yet others efficiently due to their skills
At amassing small matters by force of their wills.
No one needs to get prideful. We’re all here for fun.
Should one wear the fine work one does on one’s lapel?

In the military folks do that, and that’s fine.
Their strong sense of ambition should lead all the rest.
But for lazy civilian folk, there is no need
Because tokens of wealth do delineate greed.
My own flavor of ambition is best expressed
When, without others noticing, I dare to shine.

The Ruling

TheMagicRealist.com

Don’t be hoein’ while flowin’. Do take a damned break!
By the way, what you do for a living is wrong.
You’re not of the right gender to make the big bucks.
We’ll equate you with life, and you know that life sucks.
You should be making babies and polishing shlong
But for only one pimp for whom you’re his namesake.

You know how to wear makeup and fuss with your hair
And learn difficult footsteps while wearing high heels.
These are privileges given you by this great land.
You have rights, and those aren’t. You’ve no right to demand
Self control of your frail bodies. Weakness appeals
To the sex drives of rugged men most self-aware.

If you challenge our ruling, you’re fooling with fire.
If you think we aren’t serious, just call our bluff.
Need we fight you or smite you with stiff penalty
For insisting to be who you decide to be?
Women are moving forward but is that enough?
It depends on how much thirst for truth they inspire.

Build That Wall!

TheMagicRealist.com

Build That Wall! Look what’s happened to this blessed land.
What the Hell has become of our democracy?
Things have changed, and that always means something’s gone wrong.
We’re reduced to a nation where all can belong.
Did our white male forefathers not fully agree
That those different should not be allowed to expand?

Build That Wall brick by brick, as it is in the mind
Densely focused on hate that it calls common sense.
Build it high as the heavens and wide like the sea.
That which isn’t quite like us (between you and me)
Should be banned from high office at any expense.
We’re a melting pot filled with the worst of mankind.

One dark one has moved gently out of the limelight.
He’s replaced by one golden-haired, orange bag of air.
We know that he is white with no DNA test,
But the birth of the darkie should well be addressed.
Build That Wall because it’s no one else’s affair.
We’re a nation of fears, and we do what is right!

Rainforest Penguin

TheMagicRealist.com

Cool and dapper I am, though I may be a ham,
I’m a stranger to any strange land I make home.
I may walk side to side, but I do so with pride.
As I hold my head high, I have nothing to hide.
I have license to freak and much freedom to roam
And if people don’t like it, I don’t give a damn!

I may be short and fatty and made for the cold.
Does that mean I can’t yield to the tucan in me?
In this world of variety I find my place
among creatures abundant of integral grace.
From the quaint wooden boardwalk to Antarctic sea,
There is pure loving kindness for me to behold.

I’m a Rainforest Penguin by day and by night
And, for now, that’s delightful. I have not a care
That I should be elsewhere doing some other thing.
I am never misplaced, and my heart knows to sing
Because wholesome variety is everywhere.
I’m at home in my rainforest. Things are alright.

Q anon, The Adult Children of Q aholics ?

TheMagicRealist.com

Well… It’s kind of a monster equipped with a cloak
That it turns on when it fears that it may be seen.
Those old bastards are tricky. They control us all.
We can’t fight them alone because we are too small.
We believe in our Trumpster because he is mean.
He will deep six the deep state and indecent folk.

Don’t ask me to explain it. It’s to plain for that.
If it needs to make sense to you, do understand
I don’t need to be sensible. That’s why I vote!
I’ll not have left winged logic be jammed down my throat.
Our loud trumpet will uncover what had been planned
By those phantom child pornographers under hat.

Barking birds are suspicious when they make no sound
As they perch proud and peaceful in government trees.
They commune with the Clintons, Obamas and Cher…
Even with future aliens who are out there.
And as long as I find someone else who agrees,
When some truth is uncovered, we will stand our ground.

Eye to Eye

TheMagicRealist.com

Don’t look down on another nor up to the law.
Meet someone eye to eye. You then both will stand tall.
Looking down on a person, one harbors disdain.
Looking up, you’ll exalt one beyond what is sane.
Look a person straight on. That would be the best call.
If you can’t see directly, then you must withdraw.

That dear one you spend time with who bites your behind
Is the same as you are in the most basic ways.
You both honor the fact that you both are alive.
Life is finite. You don’t have the ass to deprive
Someone else nor yourself of God’s infinite praise.
As we see eye to eye, do we bear that in mind?

As you wake, and you put your first foot to the floor
Thank the Lord that you have one, and that you’re alive.
That sounds cliché and petty by now, but at least
The rat bastard and you aren’t among the deceased.
That is not such a bad thing. We’re here to survive
And the webs that we weave we can never ignore.

Black for Trump

TheMagicRealist.com

I’m a Proud Black for Trump! I’ve his dick up my rump
Or perhaps a facsimile with the same name.
Anyway, I’m in heaven. I feel no disgrace
From my people of color. Why do I embrace
Such a figure whose care for me should cause me shame?
If I go against logic, am I then a chump?

I know who to be black for. It isn’t for me
But for he who is chosen to fulfill God’s plan.
I’m a wounded religious freak on a lost cause.
I don’t know who I am because I never was.
Now I’m Bozo, the Black Man and avid Trump fan.
I must stand right behind him so all blacks can see.

Vote for Trump, my black brothers and sisters in race.
He has done nothing to us nor for us just yet.
He may go to the loony bin sooner than I
And, like him, I am kind of a strange thinking guy.
Were he removed from office… That, I would regret.
That would mean I’d have only my dark soul to face.

The Spin

TheMagicRealist.com

“This cue ball needs some ‘English’.” I know what that means,
Though I don’t hang with pool sharks. They’d say I’m too slow
At responding to words printed or spoken well,
And applied with precision. How do I impel
My intention effectively for the best show?
I would say that my English is part of my genes.

One’s intent is the cue ball. Its path is the way
To deliver direct force to that which it sees.
But intent knows no English. That comes from the mind
Of the conscious intender whose game is streamlined
To the purpose specific with power to seize
The collective group consciousness destined to splay.

Words are weighted with meaning. They’re easily spun
And propelled to the limits of what can be known.
In the mind there are pockets – whirlpools of a kind.
When expended thoughts go there, one becomes refined.
English seems to lack motion sometimes, it’s been shown.
When one aims just off center, the spin has begun.
