New year new Jam - 21!

Post by Doreen Peri » January 1st, 2021, 2:35 am

And so here we are, 21 again,
All together at the same time!
What do want from 21?
Something different?
Ok, then how?

i want us to learn
i would like us to understand
too many people
too much destruction
too little comprehension
i want our minds to see
it can be different
if we are different

drop by drop
til there is a waterfall
of cascading new thinking
we have to have hope
we need to reach for stars
that seem out of reach
change a mind, just one
let it snowball
into an avalanche of bold ideas
c'mon 2012, we are counting on you
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

Dear 2021 -
please grant sanity to those
who thought that a nation
could be run like a corrupt business...

please bring awareness to those
unable to grasp the notion
that not wearing a mask
is no different
than shitting in a public water supply...

please show the right-wing
that maybe law enforcement's budget
should include more skilled negotiators and clinical psychologists
than tactical gear and assault vehicles...

please bring us quiet...
no one can think clearly
with all that noise....
 
.
I'm not an outlier. I just haven't found my distribution yet.

with thought comes energy
collective dreaming can bring a change in action
together we're capable
each in our zone of influence
in our room or road
in our writings and words
nourished by one another

so lets us spread out little
include voices other than the S8 truehearts
so that we may grow our minds and flourish

S*8 Total members 1072
with thought comes energy to work for peace and good will
hard for me to think new thoughts for 2021
I am crazy because all I can think is 2021 same old same old
let's all celebrate this jam till 01/20/2021 when i will feel less dread for my homeland
till then just a another page torn off a calendar
it could be a lunar 5781 for all i feel, if six was nine
ah the young americans Have you ever wished that you were A Canadian?
another day another dread
01/06/2021
Washington DC be there be proud be wild
"Poo-tee-weet?" Vonnegut
Perhaps the soft, sweet sound of bird chirping could contrast the atrocities Billy has just been freed from after the war was over. It could symbolize all the beauty in this world that is overshadowed by the violence in human nature.

new shmew
can't hide the old
can just stir it into lots of something better.

There's an old man called the Mississippi
That's the old man I don't like to be!
What does he care if the world's got troubles?
What does he care if the land ain't free?
i am just a lump of coal and a trickling stream
even so i still want to be in that number when the saints march
would that the number be 2021

in wait for a saint or two

everyday saint heroes and Dharma Bums
in the age of Cervantes
seems as if the dragons are more dangerous
so what else is new in 2021 or 5781?
you once said:
"Google™ makes the best cop"
No results found for "Google™ makes the best cop".
sometimes I wish I was a citizen of a small almost sane country with a stash of nuclear bombs.
I try to rise above my own indoctrination yet still love my homeland that has been so kind to my family.

21? ... Twenty-friggin' One!?!...
This might be the year, the one!
Live large in the desert, the holy realm.
Come in for some shade, play a little 21...
21? ... 21! ... Twenty ... friggin' ... One! ...
Live large, bask in a mask, o sunny days.
Get a stinkin' 16? double down, cash up!
21? ... 21! ... Twenty-friggin' One ...

Just another 2 digits.

Strike another match, go start anew

risk it one more time
at frigging eighty one
I got the good ten showing
the jack of nightmares in the hole
one more year would be a miracle
hit me!
