Civil Servants Stole My Talent And Burnt My HouseShe´s so dumb, she´s so dangerous. Trained as a bloodhound. They extinguish and take anyones goods. Tell those victims they´re useless and had that coming. Modern slavery is all around us. Ministers, secretarys, advisors... all of those are only there to keep face-less people in a row in their grey world. Pretending to do a job in a society, get paid well and have, to cap it all children. The blind sponges won´t die out the coming centuries, not knowing they´re only the transferrers of energy to some big mouth kings in a sad system that has grown a monster. That monster is now able to torture people on it´s own and uncontrollable. Everyone has to pay tribute to this monster, which collects everything in the world that is precious. Not only physical guts, it riots in every imaginably 'space'. It is like a huge virus infecting everything, making it plain painful and depresses everyone. But still it needs soldiers to be at service. Innocent children are educaRedsterfish
The Raven's Lament (part II)tommyboywood

(Ahem! Is this thing on? Hello? Testing one two one two. Poe was a dip, Poe was a dip, testing...)
Barrymore T. Raven III here, at your service. As many of you may remember, I recently broke my 170 year silence to try and set the record straight on humanity's erroneous view of Ravendom. Thanks to a certain poet (who for the moment shall remain nameless) many, if not most of you, were under the impression that ravens are brainless dimwits who have nothing better to do than say "nevermore" over and over again (for full transcript click here: http://fav.me/d7db1kh). In addition, I had hoped to dispel the notion that ravens are dark, mysterious, and evil by posting the very first (known) raven poem (authored by yours truly) entitled: My fuzzy pillow (for full posting click here: http://fav.me/d7e63sx).

NadirHis shotgun smileScarlettletters
says it all -
smell of rabbits mating
in the basement
keeps him up at night
and he likes
his neighbor's daughter
as she stands on tip-toe
in the back yard,
peering through his window
or drowning kittens in the river.
He keeps a razor
in his bedroom,
siphons after-shave through
a loaf of bread
and calls it magic,
remembering how his teacher
found him naked,
shoved into a closet
and how she put
marbles in his mouth
to keep him from speaking.
His mother only laughed
and told him to wash
his clothes out
in the bathtub
and not drip water
on her carpet.
Don't leave a witness
his best friend said.
Pictures have ears
and walls can feel
when God has seen your secrets.
The beating of wingsjade-pandora
ev'ry breath of air
alters my path, but oh
the creatures of the air
Fire DanceThe way of the world, dancing, bright colored dreams, biting into life like a plump orange. Soul to soul, the sound of crowds and music reverberate, singing “Summer! Summer! Summer!” When the day lasts as long as it wants before retiring into smooth starlit night, we pair off and head down to the lake, the holiest of holies. Beads braided into our hair, faces painted, we sing the songs of our ancestors. We make love, ignoring all those things which would make these days unreal. These are the best days and nights, tattooed upon our hearts. This is where we awaken and dream. This is where we learned the Fire Dance so long ago.Bark
|For the 1st time since I have been here, I am setting this Donation Pool:|
IF anyone wants to Donate to: love-new-artists
or to me......which will only be for helping other Artists, please do so.
Please note me, which place you want your Donation to go to.
|To everyone who has given me LLamas, thank you all SO much.|
I am very grateful.
|I spend a lot of time 'browsing' artists I like.|
The MOST important thing to me, is viewing the last pictures in the galleries.
These pics. are often the most interesting because you can see how an artist develops over a period of time.
SO: If 'browsing' someone you like............go to their very last picture, they are often forgotten or 'over-looked' because this is where they started from.
INFLUENCE: is the key!
