Waiting for Sleep
The circus has folded
but sometimes (at night)
dented trumpets erupt
and the ringmaster waves
a lion's path of ringed fire.
Weary of solo encagement,
the hesitant beast falters; gathers;
then plunges unburned through the blaze.
The theatre has closed
but sometimes (at night)
a swirling-gowned singer dissolves
in pearly arias to clouds of applause
from an enthralled audience,
The war is ended
but sometimes (at night)
aurora-draped skies descend
and officers trudge waning
armies to vanished battlefields.
Jesus is actually a confused zombie. He's back from the dead and goes around wanting the rest of the world to eat pieces of him, instead of the other way around.
When the dominant belief system, permeating every sector of our lives, claims it is wounded because of the machinations of unbelievers, they rival only holocaust-deniers, and possibly O.J., for sheer disconnect from reality. They invalidate themselves as rational beings.
"Orlando, you can't be a pilgrim. The pilgrims had snowy white skin to match their pure Christian souls. They didn't sacrifice coconuts to their monkey gods." -- Probably from Jerri Blank in "Strangers with Candy."
Believing in Santa is just a trial run with positive reinforcement for believing in Jesus.

"Oh, boy. I'll buy me a..."

"Really? What did he buy me with it?"
"A bunch of union jobs."
"Why? I already have a job."
"Union jobs for other guys."

"That's right. You just pay for it."
WASHINGTON — More than 2 trillion tons of land ice in Greenland, Antarctica and Alaska have melted since 2003, according to new NASA satellite data that show the latest signs of what scientists say is global warming.Consider the loss of that trillions of tons of weight. The planet, released from the mass of it, is swelling outwards, thinning below the mantle. The resultant low pressure underground will suck down oil against the pull of oil wells, depleting the refinery tanks, and possibly even emptying your gas tank!
Forgive me Father, but I may be about to become devil's advocate by my own lights, and surely the antichrist him/itself in the eyes of certain others. Until something seriously untoward comes along, and as sure as destroyers emerge from their own smokescreens it will, I think the right man for the times is, albeit presumptuously and with the anal retentive faux-gravitas of a toddler commanding a troop of Fisher-Price little people, about to take office.
If the economy is going to be in shreds, industry nationaiized, and another terrorist attack to rattle our chains, how crucial it is that the left be on the field executing the plays instead of booing, second-guessing, and raining bottles down on the sideline.
It's more than the fact that the right had their chance and flubbed it. It's that the left has had too long of neither putting up nor shutting up. I for one welcome our new overlords and only regret we didn't bequeath them a republic of patriots. But I'll do what I can.
America changed right after the Civil War from saying "The United States are" to "The United States is." The nation's gone from compartmented dirigible to the One Big Gas Bag of blimpery, although it took a while. The shift from can-do to "where's mine?" has been lightning fast yet tectonic in nature.
It's been known for centuries that the downfall of democracy is accomplished when the electorate realizes it has the keys to the treasury, aka the other guy's pocketbook. What we've learned since is that the other guy's credit card gives us not only his money but that of his kids and grandchildren to spend right now.
It feels like we've lost a war and are occupied by a vengeful adversary bent on extracting reparations.
Bishop Paul Loverde of Arlington, Va., had this to say last week about his response if the abortion lobby’s Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) becomes law:
“I would say, ‘Yeah, I’m not going to close the hospital, you’re going to arrest me, go right ahead. You’ll have to drag me out, go right ahead. I’m not closing this hospital, we will not perform abortions, and you can go take a flying leap.’ ”
What a man. What a mighty man. But wait... from the same article...
There are no Catholic hospitals currently open in Bishop Loverde’s Arlington diocese...Sigh.
"This is Big Daddy, OJ. He's your cellie."
"Uh, hello, Big Daddy."
"Hello, OJ. You like football?"
"Whew, this isn't going to be as bad as I thought. Yeah, Big Daddy,
I like football. Why do you ask?"
"'Cuz when I see a tight end playing wide receiver, then I'm going deep."
"This isn't about football, is it?"
"Shut up and turn out the light."
