Give the world a minute…

via Daily Prompt: Relieved

is it any wonder
any wonder at all
the world has but a minute,
left bombarded
by incessant needs
and empty words.
hear the opinions fall
not as wishing stars
but bitching clouds
that hover over us all?

i am not relieved
that we profess
to be more caring
because after all
the witch has a new face.
our careless reactions
are but ways
to make ourselves
feel better in a world
that never changes, ever.

When I go to a concert I do not want to be preached at and as much as I enjoyed the music I did find myself alienated by political sanctimonious diatribes. Actions do speak louder than words and if we each gave a little more love we would prove our sincere intentions to cover sins with grace.

Up next, U2 The Joshua Tree Tour September 10 and FARMAID September 16 with Neil Young, Dave Matthews and many more musicians to like…

2017 Concerts to see

Hopeful and perhaps see Neil Young at Farm AID 2017, The Bridge School concert in Mountain View CA or Desert Trip 2017.  (Cool story about Neil Young…not sure if it is true but the story remains in my husband’s family. His grandfather took his children on summer vacations in upper Wisconsin in the 1970’s and one year Neil Young was there, sitting at the end of the pier, and smoked a doobie with my husband’s aunt.)

Hello cowgirl in the sand
Is this place
at your command
Can I stay here
for a while
Can I see your
sweet sweet smile
Old enough now
to change your name
When so many love you
is it the same?
It’s the woman in you
that makes you want
to play this game.

Roger Waters will be touring the US and in Louisville KY May 28.  Got tickets…

I wish they all were happy on the Lebanon
Wish somebody’d help me write this song
I wish when I was young
My old man had not been gone
