Here Be Dragons? Well, Here Comes the Slayer!

3 Jan

I hope that you like this Shakespearean/English styled sonnet. It is about fighting back against bullies in the workplace. That is a topic that is very personal to me. I don’t like bullies and I don’t like folks to mess with my money. Can you dig that? Enjoy!

dred dragon slayer

Fire-breathing, ferocious and dangerous.
Evoking fear among sinners and saints.
Destroying lives of those who cause a fuss.
Making people too scared to file complaints.

The belly of the beast is where we dwell;
The foul stench and viscous slime all around.
Lamenting in the inferno of Hell.
Ignoring cries for help; we’re numb to sound.

The monster must die before we’re consumed.
A dagger to the heart; blows to the head.
With true words as your sword the fiend is doomed.
Karma craves justice and she must be fed.

Not apathetic or a naysayer
Here be dragons? Well, here comes the slayer!

May a good reputation precede you

With success and laughter as companions.

I hope all obstacles are broken through

And that you’re named among true champions.

I pray that all you love will love you back

And that you forgive the wrong others do.

Learn life’s lessons; the light shines through the crack.

Sometimes it will be painful or brand new.

Don’t miss opportunities presented.

May newfound things bring out your inner child.

Please guard yourself against the demented.

Moderation is key; don’t go buck-wild!

Yesterday is gone; your slate is now clean.

I wish you the best for 2014!

So, How Does It Feel?

7 Sep

This is a 10-part Triple Rhyme Poem that talks about karma. According to Dictionary.com, karma is “the principle of retributive justice determining a person’s state of life and the state of his reincarnations as the effect of her/his past deeds.”

You do reap what you sow. Good and bad. I’ve been blessed with good fortune at unexpected and oftentimes moments when I was on the brink of despair. I’ve also done my share of dirt and have been on the receiving end of this boomerang myself and let me tell you, it was not a pleasant experience.

Song, book, and movie titles are hyper-linked to their respective audio, summary, or video pages on GrooveShark.com, Amazon.com, IMDB.com, or YouTube.com.

I want you to have a full multimedia experience during your visit here on my blog.

After you pulled your mess I thought about you on Two Occasions; day and night.

Mama Said Knock You Out and I’m mentally and physically built for war and ready to fight.

It is most definitely time for the Payback because what you did was wrong and it is going to be made right.

Don Corleone from The Godfather said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

My initial impulse was to go Boogie Down and make you Ante Up truth be told.

Justice is sweeter than revenge and platinum is more valuable than gold.

I stepped away from vengeful thinking because I have a different Method, Man.

Work hard, be fair in your dealings, and be open to learning new things should always be part of your daily plan.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people and sometimes folks fly off the handle – just ask Eminem about that dude Stan.

Exhale the anger because it consumes you and keeps you from thinking straight.

Like Colin Powell said, “Get mad, get over it, then get going” is What Makes the Great Great.

Rage makes you less than the divine being you could be so make a choice not to hate.

Sometimes there will be anxiety but when you Get Up Stand Up for what’s right be Not Afraid.

The Force, Great Spirit, Mother Nature, or whatever you want to call it makes sure that no debts go unpaid.

Righteousness is a solid rock and lies and hypocrisy dry-up and fade.

Who Do You Love and Could You Be Loved and will you do what is the right thing to do?

It is so much easier to tell the truth because when one gets caught in their lies it is sickening like having a bad case of the Spanish Flu.

It begins to feel like your insides are on fire and beginning to stew.

It didn’t have to be this way but you wanted to be a bully even though you already had the high-ground.

You constantly needed your ego stroked and needed reassurances that you were the alpha and the king of the mound.

Now my Cosmic Mama will teach you a lesson that will break you down to the very last compound.

You thought me too injured and distraught to fight back against your attacks.

You may have even thought me to be dead and stinking but the heat you brought reshaped me like molded wax.

An indomitable soul is like Bébé’s Kids because it doesn’t die, it multiplies and those are the facts.

Now look at yourself being in a world of hurt and nowhere to run and hide.

I actually pity you because now your falling because you had a cocky pride.

Standing there with your mouth and eyes opened wide.

I bet you can’t really Breathe because you’re shocked and things seem so surreal.

Karma goes 360 degrees and What Goes Around comes back around full circle like reel to reel.

So, How Does It Feel?

Is It REALLY Real?

2 Jun

I was chatting with a good friend the other day about how people don’t critically analyze or think about things before they say something or take action. This 17-part haiku chain is my advice in poem about how to use the scientific method to figure things out.

Image

Don’t preach what you think.
Only preach about what is known.
All else is guessing.

Do not confuse what
you are told by others with
actual facts, friend.

Human history
is composed of five parts. You
need all five for sure.

If you are missing
one or more element, you
cannot erase doubt.

PEOPLE are the first
ingredient. Specific
names and titles, please.

Next comes DATES. When did
this person live? During what
period of time?

What happened? Was there
some notable EVENTS? Why
is it important?

Where was this? What PLACES?
The milieu can help put things
in proper context.

Where’s the EVIDENCE?
Without evidence, there can
be no argument.

Perhaps you’ll provide
documentation, portraits,
or a photograph.

Ancient artifacts?
Audio recordings or
video footage?

If you claim a thing
to be the truth, make sure
to present your proof.

These are the rules of
evidence. All you have to
do is be a child.

“A child shall lead them.”
“You must be born again.” Be
curious. Inquire.

Ask questions like What?
Who? Where When? Why?
and How? That’s
how to get answers.

Be critical in
thinking and analysis.
Don’t go on blind faith.

Research your subject.
Due diligence let’s you know.
Is it REALLY real?

The Cream Will Keep Rising to the Top

25 Nov

One of the great things to come out of Superstorm Sandy was it really showed me who my true friends and loving family members are.

No one owes may anything. I do not have an entitlement mentality and have not and will not feel sorry for myself or my situation.

It is just interesting how adversity shows you people’s true colors.

The fallout to Superstorm Sandy has indeed been a blessing because I have a better idea of who is who in my life.

In this triple rhyme poem, song titles are hyperlinked to their respective audio files on GrooveShark.com and YouTube.com.

Enjoy, and figure out is is your friend and who is your frenemy.

“A friend in need is a friend indeed” is an old saying.

There is some fire to spit around this topic and I’m not playing.

Superstorm Sandy let me know which friendships are immortal and which were sick and decaying.

I generally don’t ask family or friends for favors because I believe in doing for self.

When you work hard for what you got you don’t want other able-bodied people siphoning your wealth.

Allowing such behavior can be bad for your financial health.

Those that know me know that I am far from being Minnie the Moocher or Begging Billy.

If someone were to say otherwise you would have to hit them with a “Really?”

They’ll be fronting while their lips are moving like Milli Vanilli.

It is funny how you can always be there for others and remember every milestone in their life.

Their children’s birthday, their favorite food and the anniversary of getting married to their husband or wife.

When you are not even called or asked about feels like you were stabbed in the heart with a sharp knife.

“I’ve been Thinking of You. Have you been thinking about me?” is a question that Tony! Toni! Toné decided to pose.

If you answer ‘yes,’ you’re a liar and your nose will grow like Pinnochio’s.

You get caught up in your lies and fronting and are all over the place like Any Way the Wind Blows.

Friends, how many of us have them?” is a question we all should ask.

Your friend could be Frenemy and if you are not careful they could take you to task.

Then you’ll be listening to sad songs while you cry and sip whiskey from a flask.

I’m also disappointed at companies that say they take care of their people – Ha! What a gaff!

Like Craig G and Marley Marl said, Don’t Make Me Laugh.”

Your words and actions didn’t add up like it was bad math.

When the power was out we had to get a generator that was powered by gas or diesel.

When you’re down and out, Pop goes the Weasel!

Their bullshit is a piece of work that should be framed and displayed on an easel.

Heaven help you when you are in your next jam and you feel all alone.

Don’t listen to Erykah! You better not call Tyrone!

Get busy because you’re All Alone.

I got knocked down but can’t stop won’t stop will not stop!

I can never sink to the bottom because if I was 5-0 I would be top cop.

You can’t hold me down because the cream will Keep Rising to the Top.
