Drunk with Fear - 18oct21

The note was taped

to the inside of her screen door,

with the message facing outward

for all to read.

An angry hand had scrawled,

“Attention Satanic Socialists:

This is the home of a PATRIOTIC Christian Family.

We work hard and pay taxes.

We do NOT celebrate Satan’s Day.

We do NOT give away FREE candy

to lazy, entitled, freeloaders.

NO handouts!

Welcome to America!!

If you want candy GET A JOB!!


Well thank you,

after lavishing me with such sage advice,

and glorious exclamation marks

I am sold.

Clearly you possess the love and peace

that my life is lacking.

Thank you for showing me

the error of my ways oh good Samaritan.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.

Join our nightly livestream.
