Time to get political

I'm not going to publicly wave the flag for anyone in this coming election only because I believe who I vote for is between me and the ballot box.

But I will make some noise about people NOT voting. It irritates me to no end that so many people throw their hands up and don't get involved.

I don't get why it is so hard for people to see that by not participating in the process, they are giving even MORE power to others to decide their fate for them.

So this weekend I am going to do some YouTube vids to implore people to vote I need to express my outrage and get some people off their butts!

Flame and Bone

When I was made from fire
Poured into the tender vessel of caution
That keeps my smoke from rising
Quickly did I discover that apart from crisp drizzles or falling snow
The world chilled my touched
Walking the narrow cornered gap between girders and cut stone
One learns to tuck his shoulders in or risk
Jostling a neighbor passing by rapt with want
For a clear path without the distraction
Of another man's boiling eyes
The tip of a finger
That oldest of all weapons
Grown deadlier and pristine in its invention
Gathers a mote of a cinder on its bare flesh
And turns pondering how best to scratch the impious itch
Prying open the tender seam
Where the oil of thought dews
Offering a new wick to ignite
Squirming alive as a salamander of mischief
That yearns for a taste of air it is so ready to devour
The steam of breath betrays me
Before the glint of orange spreads
In popping bright waves
Eroding the fibers feeding it
Leaving naught but ash
As my shell of quietude falls away
