(with respect and adoration for W.H. Auden and his Funeral Blues)
Stop all the clocks Reverse all progress.
Forget our equality, this is a big fucking mess.
Silence all reason and show off your guns
Bring out our coffins, this air burns our lungs.
Let the victors gloat over our dead
Scribble on twitter “we jacked off big pharma who jacked up their meds”.
Ship away all of our friends who are brown
Let the unchecked police force shoot the rest down
She was my North, my South, my East, my West
Every day of my life, survival, advocacy, work and rare rest
Our health, our water, our families, and access to school.
I thought our liberty would last for ever, but someone shit in the pool.
We are not wanted now by those who have won
Pack up your dreams if you are not a straight, able, white, Christian son.
Pour away our meds and sweep up our bones
For they only care about war and money and defaulting on loans.

Love this. Special thanks to AANE.org for posting it on their blog way back when so I could discover it today.
I really needed a good laugh today. Between this and 20 minutes of America’s Funniest Videos and a montage of kids and potty shenanigans (it would seem that many little guys see the toilet as a mini-hot tub of sorts) I laughed until I sobbed and then that took awhile to dam. Oh well. I’d rather have laughter so strong it shifts to another emotion than be a superficial asshat. And laughing that hard and then crying feels like a huge release on a day when I’m a boneless mass trying not to deflate myself on my bed of nails (mat with spikes for pain relief… I’ll blog on that later)… It’s like a sexless orgasm of the brain.
A totally primal mindgasm.
And now I could use a nap.
G’night, my friends. Goodnight.
Last year’s card…
Originally uploaded by CleverGirlBek
Ok- So I made this card for the baldguy last year…. He had a bunch of movies on his wishlist so I ordered a few and I’m the queen of themes and kits as gifts- so the ones I ordered all had Kevin Spacey in them…
So in the throes of insomnia I found a picture of Kevin Spacey and a very old free clipart picture of santa and a reindeer and did a little cropping and pasting…
Inside, on the left side of the card it said:
what’s in the box?
On the right side it said:
The greatest trick Santa Claus
ever pulled was convincing the
world he did not exist.
Have a Spacey Christmas!
It still makes me smile and I hope it made you smile as well….
