The Important and Insignificant

The Important and Insignificant

 

Important

Insignificant

Makers of distinctions

Determining the rankings

Powering up corruption

 

It’s time for…phasing out ‘Better then’

It’s time for…being inclusive

It’s time for…shutting out no one

It’s time for…representing everyone

 

Protect the environment

Homes for the homeless

Food for the starving

Wisdom for the ignorant

Empower the different

[this is a growing power and a growing poem]
[hope to add new verses including the chorus]
[on Off the Rails – Track 451]


Which Side Are You On? – Pete Seeger

“The Important and Insignificant” is appearing also on Off the Rails – Track 451, a blog my partner Shawn MacKenzie created. We work on it together. She needs a place other than her Dragon’s Nest to Rant & I need more than ‘the secret keeper’ Here’s to Ranting & Needed Observations – Plus Fun Stuff too! ps. ‘maggie the cat’ is a pseudonym and wild as ‘Hell!’

About the Author:

“Never Tell Me I Can’t Do Something.” Words which make me feel challenged and pushed forward until what meets me is accomplished. It is within me to create from thoughts, images and sound. There are five questions: What? When? Where? How? And Why? My compulsion is to figure out answers to them all. I am a writer, poet, artist, blogger who uses her tools to search the unknown, to discover all the possibilities and impossibilities, and to live as full a life as imaginable. Jk the secret keeper

    In unity there is strength is an old and simple truth. What puzzles me is why in too many times and too many places too many people have too much difficulty learning and applying that truth!

    Well done, Jennifer Kiley!

    We so need a unifying front if we are to move forward change for the good and the many. I will work more on this poem. I want to create a cry for taking care of everyone. To stop those who have from taking it all. Thank you Larry for your support. -- jk
