...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Friday - Poetry? Vocabulary?

Now that I'm back, I'm considering what Friday Feature to return to. Early on, in the old days, we did Poetry Fridays. Here are some oldies but goodies:

It's hard to ignore the confession
Of a man with such high moral obsession
But my, poor old Rush;
His brains are such mush;
The pills prob'ly helped his profession

Who leaked the i.d. of Ms. Plame?
Who IS the rascal to blame?
Could it be, maybe
That it was Cheney?
Oh that would be SUCH a shame!

or, some Haiku:

Many men have tried
To lie to me about war
But I am too smart

We are ask'd: believe
We are told: it's true, just wait
Faith does not make truth

Then, early in 2005 I tried Vocabulary Word Friday. Here's a good one:

Today's word is:


government in which the people hold the ruling power either directly or through elected representatives; rule by the ruled; the principle of equality of rights, opportunity, and treatment, or the practice of this principle; the common people as the wielders of political power.

Use it in a sentence this weekend! "Boy, would I like to be a part of making this country a democracy again!"

It's kind of depressing looking back at almost 4 years of blogging and seeing how little has changed. But off with the depression!

Let's end this week with some NEW HAIKU!!

Just can't convince Bush:
"Yeeha!" is not a foreign
policy that works

Rumsfeld, you have SUCH
a way with words that we are
deaf from your bullshit

Condi, you forgot that
Dip-lo-ma-cy means you must
use your brain sometimes

Minimum Wage, raised?
No, Just Congress flipping off
Those that put them there.

Well, happy Friday. It's been a great first week back blogging. Though my guess is no one has figured out yet that I'm back. We're off to a week at the Coast - but of course I'm taking the laptop!

UPDATE: Good Friday Fun over at Kos:

"Cuban dictator Fidel Castro is still in the hospital with a serious medical condition. Castro said that a half century of Communist rule seemed like a good idea right up until the point he was rushed to the hospital in a '55 Oldsmobile."
---Conan O'Brien

"President Bush has rejected calls for an immediate cease-fire [in Lebanon] on the grounds that he'd prefer a "sustainable" cease-fire. It makes sense. He doesn't want the killing to stop until he's sure it will stop. So there will be more killing until the president's convinced that there will be no more killing. Or everyone else runs out of people."
