Why America Needs The Common Core

One hundred and three

Close to five thousand, but don’t look at me

One thousand and seven

Six hundred and two

I’m a mathematician,

Yeah, that’s what I do.

Shhhh

It is alright to

Take a long moment to sit

And just think

Beep, beep,

Beep, buzz.

His mind is alert

Information driving into his mind with every turn.

A message on Facebook.  A new friend?

Perhaps old?

Has he ever seen this person before?

Whatsapp needs attention.

Cute.

A dog can swim while biting a frisbee.

Snapchatting faces, one blurring into the next.

Bombarded by messages.

Silence?

Not a moment.

People call out

Scream through clogged air waves.

Calling, connecting.

Still, somehow,

He’s never felt so alone.

Cow Rite

As in, would you cow rite this book with me?

The other day, I got to thinking about life.

Dovecoat and spice

A million words watching,

Talk on the high road

A falcon for talking.

Croussant or a bagel?

A cow covered leg?

A spruce covered albacus

Inside a hatched egg.

Ridiculous notion

I think, said the lad

To the chocolate covered streussel

Yet, nary confirmed.

One million thoughts floating

Arrived yet not worth it,

For five thousand years

She really deserved it.

One thousand and seven,

Seven hundred and ten

Once buried, now discovered.

Run!  Catch that hen!

Filled with emotion

A brick in a wall

Watch it forever

Lest it may fall.

Benefits of Standing on your Head

sri-dharma-mittra-yoga-headstand

According to recent reports in the American Home Journal of Endocronology and Pyschiatric Medications (2012), standing on your head leads to a better life in every area.  Standing on your head is beneficial for many reasons, including, but not restricted to the following observations:

1. Standing on your head leads to better facial flow.  In other words, its like a facial, right in your living room (or bedroom… or bathroom?) The blood flows to your head, providing you with a flushed, healthy, and vital appearance.

2. Headstands can do wonders for the digestive system.  Being upside down relieves pressure off the the vena cava, arterial extract,and intravenous malformation, thus inducing greater ease of movement in the asophogisial area.

3. Headstands are fun.

4. Headstands provide your shoulder, neck, back, and other muscles with more muscles so they can muscle it up and be muscular.

5. Standing on your head is a mood elevator.  The science behind it is this:  standing on the head brings the flow of blood up rather than down.  This, in turn, leads to greater endorphins, which are created for the usage of ant-depressants and so on, and so forth.

The point of this post is to encourage the standing of on heads.  Additionally, I would like to encourage Headstand Groups, in which there is a room full of people doing headstands.  They can talk, but standing on the head is the number one requirement.  You heard it here first.

Cheers!

Toasting

The atrocities vanish

When she thinks of her hunger

The world all around can startle and crumble

Fall asleep now

While the shadows surround

And the whispers and doom

crowd and confound.

For the strategy is 

To sleep long and deep

And to never wake up

Forever asleep.

The ultimate gain

Of ignoring the trouble

Is to wake up one day

In a great pile of rubble.

 

It’s the Thought that Counts

The air was green

The earth was lent

of suffering, seclusion, Ulyssus T. Brent.

Air from the North

Whence eaten from grain

In hindsight a niggle, a giggle, some pain.

Regardless of truths

Of lasting fruition

Of blindness and Alzheimer’s the blame falls 

than CRASH

Nothing, no one, blind sight 

No regard

No laughing, no lugging

A purple guitar.

Sunrise confusion,

Lastness and grain

The ultimate retrieval

A hard drive

Insane.

It’s quite incidental

The sun shines hot spice

When Ichabad was seven

He really seemed nice

But then came the summer,

The ice cream and cake

strawberries, blueberries, hot dogs and steak.

Mangoes so juicy and yellow and sweet

The mustard and ketchup and barbecued meat.

The FBI report

Provided contradictions

But the point of the matter was

Too many addictions.

The doorstep was narrow

Like a surrogate mother

It helped that poor Ichabad

Did not have a brother.

A chimpanzee maybe,

but nothing more nothing less

The natives reported

He left with finesse.

 

 

Strong Gust of Wind

A call from afar

Foreboding design

Intuit a castle’s 

Exotic design

The gates slightly open

A gosling of gold

The oak tree assembled

Yet still, feel the cold.

A strange dog awander 

No, that word is not real.

A home painted mustard

A pumpkin concealed.

Hush, my sweet child

A sense of deviation

Behaviors, consumers

An aching sensation.

The sweet taste of honey

The smell of blue paint

The wind through a field

Will show no restraint.
