Unmasking the truth, poetic thought by George-B (The Smudge and other poems)


Unmasking the truth, poetic thought by George-B

Unmasking the truth,
Unlike skinning
a mushroom,
a tree,
a hare, a crocodile, a bird of paradise
is a matter of
intellectual quest,
curiosity, of
pretending to have found the place of gathering
that
most people avoid
where only few have the what-ever-it-is
that
make people step out of the safety of
sheepish crowds,

and expose their brains to the elements,
all
natural or human or inhumanly made…
It is also a matter of taste, sometimes a choice
but mostly a matter of no other choice at all.

©Always, by George-B.

Quotation: Ralph Waldo Emerson about truth handsomer than love

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) Discuss

Quotation: Jerome K. Jerome on egocentrism


The truth is, we each of us have an inborn conviction that the whole world, with everybody and everything in it, was created as a sort of necessary appendage to ourselves. Our fellow men and women were made to admire us and to minister to our various requirements.

Jerome K. Jerome (1859-1927) Discuss

Von Bondies-C’mon C’mon-with lyrics (Rescue Me Season 1: Episode 3-Leaving)



On another day c’mon c’mon
With these ropes I tied can we do no wrong
Now we grieve cause now is gone
Things were good when we were young

With my teeth locked down I can see the blood
Of a thousand men who have come and gone
Now we grieve cause now is gone
Things were good when we were young

Is it safe to say? (c’mon c’mon)
Was it right to leave? (c’mon c’mon)
Will I ever learn? (c’mon c’mon)
(c’mon c’mon c’mon c’mon)

As I make my way c’mon c’mon
These better nights that seem too long
Now we grieve cause now is gone
Things were good when we were young

With my teeth locked down I can see the blood
Of a thousand men who have come and gone
Now we grieve cause now is gone
Things were good when we were young

Is it safe to say? (c’mon c’mon)
Was it right to leave? (c’mon c’mon)
Will I never learn? (c’mon c’mon)
(c’mon c’mon c’mon c’mon)

Is it safe to say? (c’mon c’mon)
Was it right to leave? (c’mon c’mon)
Will I never learn? (c’mon c’mon)
(c’mon c’mon c’mon c’mon)

And know this day these deepened wounds don’t heal so fast
Can’t hear me croon of a million lies that speak no truth
Of a time gone by that now is through

Tell you the truth, when this bundle of feathers gets up in the air, it’s hard to believe it knows what it’s doing…After two, three wing flaps it becomes evident: It flies!
