Below is one of the duets from the chapter titled 'Politics'.


Strategies

 

........Tased by propaganda,
........stunned into red and blue
........confusion

........we go to the booths,
........smiles, waves, promises,
........a ferociously flown flag

........like chameleons,
........candidates transform colors
........to camouflage truth

........ask us to trust without doubt,
........political bullshit disguised
........as American rightness,

........more gov’t power, less choices,
........less tolerance, more gov’t power,
........gridlocked with fear, we

........wait for numbers to speak
........wait for said change
........wait for confetti to fall

It's Political by J.Manalo

" It's Political "


Below are a few duets from Voices Beyond the Canvas, published in 2007.


" Shrouded by the Fog " .........................................." Gratitude "

Gratitude

Today as I stand in muted time,

silver fog rolls as if it were the sea,

beckons me to stand still,

hints of pine hypnotize,

heartfelt gratitude fertilizes

seeds of un-harvested awareness,

trees and human spirits unite,

as one cannot exist without the other.
