Short Mind Voyage
By BR Chitwood
“I’ll try one more time! Dammit!”
Without thinking, I said the words angrily and aloud.
“Pardon me!” My wife said with a scowl.
“Oh, sorry, just mumbling to myself. Go back to your work. This laptop is driving me nuts!”
“You sure it’s not you – driving you, Nuts?”
“You know the answer to that, Milady, I’ll never get tuned in to this Cyberspace crap. I’m convinced some bright PhD hotshots put this Computer crap together, knowing the buyer would have to purchase one every few years for the updates… I’m sorry, sweetheart. Go back to your genealogy.”
“It’s okay, Billy. I still love you…just don’t break this one up like the other one.”
“I won’t, it just annoys the hell out of me that I’m so dumb I can’t get it.”
“You write great books, poetry, and blog posts. You are not designed for Technology.”
“There are many times I wonder…thanks, honey.”
Now, where was I?
It seems the sharp minds of Creators
Bring hope to many people who are
Seeking jobs and hope for their families…
With the plethora offer of options
For vocational possibilities and life
Enhancements come disappointment,
Vitriol, Envy, and unharnessed anger.
All elements of life’s tenuous menu
Come into play when cultures clash in
Competition and wage variances…
People of all colors and presentiments
Become wary of thoughts and action.
Resentment comes, street clashes erupt
In our cities – riots, murder, mayhem!
With new Federal Masters, our borders
Are open to all, including babies barely
Walking, without their mothers, rapists,
Cartel members, Murderers, terrorists,
Hundreds of thousands, many of whom
Come humbly seeking better jobs,
better lives, for their families
I’m writing of events you already know,
And, well, I figure writing about these
Troubling times – Covid-19, a new pol
Group ‘running the show’, our Israeli
Friends, Hamas, China, Russia, Iran…
I can feel I have at least faced Earth’s
Problems to some degree.
