Poem. "Death and Marriage."

When it rains, it Pours!

I got pretty upset every time I heard the news; it was almost an open season on women,

I had discussions with my friends, we saying what’s going on women were dying left and right,

Life was speaking, no one was listening until it came home, we heard the news but because it

Was not in our neck of the woods we didn’t pay it much attention, not knowing that was where the

Boss on my friend’s job lived, he was the very last person in the world, and one would think would do

A thing like this. He even shot the dog.

I wrote this poem in February 2010, this was when it really hit home, that people are similar but not same.

We may be looking right, but that don’t mean we are all sane.



Death & marriage!

Everywhere

I look!

Breaking news

On TV

Right here!

In my space

In my face

Directly

In front of me.

On the front

Cover

The morning

News paper

From my favorite

News stand

Sitting

On the corner!

Another woman

Dies

Another wife

Found tied

To a pole in the

Basement

Of her house.

While

Her children

Cries.

Those that have

Been so lucky

To be alive,

Is it really

Luck?

After being witness

To such horror

In their home

But they manage

To escape

Ran over to their

Neighbor

It was not to be

There best day

For there again

Was the horror

Of all horrors

No such luck

Existed

in that home.

The possessed,

Had just finished

Cleaning up

After himself.

Getting dressed

The fool had

Made sure that

Everyone

Was asleep,

Yes that creeps

He Kept Vigil.

The only thing

That was awake

On that night

Was his loaded

Shotgun

None

Had a chance

All because of

A failing romance.

Until this day

Everyone

who knew then

Were all

still asking?

What

Could that sweet

Little dog have

done

For he too

Was shot and

killed.

But it’s owners

They all had

Died

In the same accident

As well

Is it too late

to ask them

What could

That sweet dog

Have done?

But it’s not

Too late

for the next

Thousand

That would be

dead

This same time

next year

If you don’t

Start now, to stop

The madness!

The ASCAP

stuck With

another cruelty

to animal bill!

But somehow

The gun survived.

No law had been

Passed

To kill the gun

So I guess

When guns are

Outlawed

Only the out laws

Will have guns

All the other

witnesses

That is still alive

Don’t want

No outlawing of

guns

For eventually

We will all die.

So

In the meantime

It waits

Along with

The other weapons

Of choice.

Some

Are being chosen

Even this very

night!

As I look up the

Stats

There’s

Really no reason

To believe

It will hit home

Next

There could be

No method

To this madness,

Just unnecessary

death.

It seems to have

Started all the way

From Creation

If you believe.

Eve went rogue,

Delilah became

a barber,

For much more

Than hair.

No ones

stepping in

To find out

About Cleopatra

What's going on

here?

They are all s

pectators

Along the sidelines,

Making wagers

Who will win?

The bible warned.

Woe!

On to man!

And in this game of life,

There are many roads

To travel,

Those who plays,

Must play to win,

But the real prize

Is because

of how you play

the game!

And who really

plays?

One can only

Wonder,

As those pages

Unravel

Who will be

the next to fall?

Who will post

That

revealing text

About.


Death &Marriage!

Thanks for reading mrslgibb, this is one of the areas where it's harder to detect , because of what you said , the lies and deceit that usually leads to all sorts of negative follow up actions. Selfishness.

But God is great .

Bless.

I quite agree with you Sky in the poem. People go insane with, Jealousy, fear, greed, above all lies, being obscessive and any more deceitful human emotions I can think of. All these human qualities do destroy and eventually leads up to abuse, murder, but its sorting out through the weak and the strong, the truth and the lies,what is right from wrong, inorder to find a balance to keep us all from going insane.

Where is how it should be? people living in harmony with one another, without the wars, death, violence of this world.

We are never successful when we give others the power and become reactive rather than remain in control of our emotions. All hell breaks loose!!!

My favorite Beatles song. It speaks volumes as does your poetry. Some shoot an animal just for the thrill, it's bad enough when they eat them. Thank you..

You said it exactly as I felt while writing a year ago, I changed the gruesome words a little.

Was a true story in the Maryland area someone rather close , quite a surprise because he was smiling and quiet , never a suspicious character wife , 2 sons. the dog and himself.

I use many different avenues , I never judge a book by it's cover never. Too easy.

Bless

Thanks my brother.

Oh! don't I know, that is the intent, but there is so many more earthly reasons than one, that I read and listened to the words of the Bible and Jesus.

And the music and the "LYRICS" of Bob Marley:

"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery , none but ourselves can free our mind"

I know you would leave something for the soul.Thanks!

Yes I love Jane's work. I admire anyone who have see the light.

Gorillas in the mist , I think Sigoney Weaver did it .

Love her Aliens.

Bless my Brother.

You saw "Free Willy". In the wild, the the dorsal is up like a sail, in captivity, it droops. It is the flag of the whale's spirit. The whales and especially dolphins have sonar. They are in an enclosed space and it is irritating to them, it can even drive them mad. As far as that whale - he was just bored and wanted to play.

I read a book by Jane Goodall, the chimp lady . . . "The Naked Ape". It was her take on human behavior. In one chapter, she ran down a list of behaviors that chimps and monkeys display in captivity that they do not display in the wild. Suffice it to say . . . we are in captivity.

Thanks you so much the one and the only Chip , you are truly one of a kind.

And what are they doing about that woman who died with the killer whale this time , I hope she owns the bank, BTW, what's your take on the limited freedom of these beasts?

Already Love all your take on nature.

But I need to hear you say this one, take it as exercise.

Bless.,

Orlando was such a quiet, peaceful place before Disney showed up. Now, the demons are selling tickets to the show and laughing all the way to the bank.

It is difficult to handle betrayal and abandonment. Even if it is merely misconceived. There is also a situation that demons like to set up . . . abrupt and bewildering circumstances. Now the show is on.

The dog's fatal mistake was making eye contact.
