Long-winded drivel

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Let’s discuss this
Let’s discuss that

Doesn’t matter what
Doesn’t matter who
Colours will do
Green or blue

Ocean waters
Sons, daughters
Smiles, laughter
Plenty crying after

Walk and runs
Joys and funs
Words just flow
Ideas grow

Philosophy
Geography
Anatomy
Taxonomy

Conquests, cures
Pains endured
Slow…down
More and more
Hit the floor

Listen to the hum
Mother Earth glum
Could ignore
Talk some more
Finance, politics
Don’t be a bore

How about ants living,
Gorillas screaming
Purpose of living
Reasons for dying
Riches, diamonds
Life unsatisfying

Inviting, biting
Infinite fighting
Cause unknown
Bodies thrown
Souls blown

Inhuman misery
Factories, fisheries
Ships and planes
Expanses, plains

Roof of the world
Beautiful birds
Beaches and peaches
Eels and leeches
Jail breaches

Injuries, hurts
Heart wrenching, flirts
Indeed…about that,
Stop staring that skirt
Stop calling me a bird
You are such dirt

Why going so low
Flying solo
Let me hold that…

LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME

By the Mighty Mumford

LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME

Last year at this time I was laying

In a hospital bed praying…

Tomorrow back then

Big toe was taken,

For my foolishness I was paying!

I’ve managed to walk all the way

To “Circuit Break Cafe.”

Down a long hall,

Nary a stall,

At least going one way!

Return from the coffee machine,

Took longer–leg pain was mean–

Likewise the back

Stopped in my track

Several times on my cane to lean.

Eternal

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Dear one
full of fear one
why worry
future would come
we would be same
passion may tame
But love…yes, love
would keep us warm
hand and hand
weather any storm
that daily kiss
you emboss on my lips
would last me for years
my face reflects
joyful tears
your embrace holds
million fables,
stories you told
more than enough
for my old age
my beautiful
vivacious sage
come, lie beside me
under open skies
I feel free
even stars agree
on a moonless night
your hand on my heart
what a wonderful sight
I will never lose
my drive, my thirst
of you and that smile
just one last wish
I don’t do goodbyes
please let me die first20140603-064244 am-24164870.jpg

CUSTOMIZED COMPUTER SEARCH

By the Mighty Mumford

CUSTOMIZED COMPUTER SEARCH

Coming back too many times,

Logic protocol divines…

Perhaps “we” should ask

If a certain task

Is what they had in mind.

If  a site visit repeater,

Perhaps time to take them deeper….

Find out what they’ll pay

To increase play,

While the angle of the pit goes deeper.

It was so with E-bay,

Enticing in numerous ways…

Ads everywhere

I’d look and stare,

Luring…reminding…PLEASE STAY!

MERMAIDS FOR REAL?

By the Mighty Mumford

MERMAIDS FOR REAL?

Is it true these folks are real,

Although not fully revealed…

Animal Planet

Takes it for granted

That it can explain the whole deal.

Looking at their You Tube videos,

Theory and fact hang close…

So=called “marine ape”

Evolves off the  Cape

Of African shores they chose.

Killer whales considered once on land,

So too, say them of merman…

Theory aside

This concept flies

In the face of Creation’s high stand.

Revolution – rock n roll

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Shut the gate, shut the gate
Right in the face of the enemy you hate
Shut the gate, shut the gate,
Shut, shut, shut, shut
Shut the gate
Iron minds, long marches,
Picket arches, barricades
Shut the gate, shut the gate
Shut, shut, shut, shut
Shut the gate
Power brokers, men with guns,
Electrocuted, maimed, stunned,
it is invariably just too late
Shut the gate, shut the gate
Shut, shut, shut, shut
Shut the gate
Fire at will, how many to kill
they will keep…coming still,
Diabolical, abominable nanny state
Shut the gate, shut the gate,
Shut, shut, shut, shut
Shut the gate
Right in the face of the enemy you hate
Just keep going, never ever stop
Thick headed forces, penny will drop
Shut the gate, shut the gate,
Shut, shut, shut, shut
Shut the gate

Steve Jobs: The Poet

I Love Poetry

I love to write poetry

I love to read poetry. My favorite poet is Ezra Pound. I won’t even give you a link to him. If you have not heard of him, then this post may not be for you.

I write “FREESTYLE” poetry. I have never sold any of my poetry. Agents just would laugh at me: “Die First”

We had a guy amongst us who I never liked: Steve Jobs.

Always regarded him as a “disruption”. Why should I not have a nice comfortable keyboard in front of me? Why do I need to deal with “icons” instead of words? (Thank God for Open Office).

Steve dies and a lot of his writings come out.

THIS GUY IS A FREESTYLE POET

1. Steve Jobs said: Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

Innovation has no limits. The only limit is your imagination. It’s time for you to begin thinking out of the box. If you are involved in a growing industry, think of ways to become more efficient; more customer friendly; and easier to do business with. If you are involved in a shrinking industry – get out of it quick and change before you become obsolete; out of work; or out of business. And remember that procrastination is not an option here. Start innovating now!

2. Steve Jobs said: Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

There is no shortcut to excellence. You will have to make the commitment to make excellence your priority. Use your talents, abilities, and skills in the best way possible and get ahead of others by giving that little extra. Live by a higher standard and pay attention to the details that really do make the difference. Excellence is not difficult – simply decide right now to give it your best shot – and you will be amazed with what life gives you back.

3. Steve Jobs said: “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

I’ve got it down to four words: “Do what you love.” Seek out an occupation that gives you a sense of meaning, direction and satisfaction in life. Having a sense of purpose and striving towards goals gives life meaning, direction and satisfaction. It not only contributes to health and longevity, but also makes you feel better in difficult times. Do you jump out of bed on Monday mornings and look forward to the work week? If the answer is ‘no’ keep looking, you’ll know when you find it.

4. Steve Jobs said: “You know, we don’t grow most of the food we eat. We wear clothes other people make. We speak a language that other people developed. We use a mathematics that other people evolved… I mean, we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful, ecstatic feeling to create something that puts it back in the pool of human experience and knowledge.”

Live in a way that is ethically responsible. Try to make a difference in this world and contribute to the higher good. You’ll find it gives more meaning to your life and it’s a great antidote to boredom. There is always so much to be done. And talk to others about what you are doing. Don’t preach or be self-righteous, or fanatical about it, that just puts people off, but at the same time, don’t be shy about setting an example, and use opportunities that arise to let others know what you are doing.

5. Steve Jobs said: “There’s a phrase in Buddhism, ‘Beginner’s mind.’ It’s wonderful to have a beginner’s mind.”

It is the kind of mind that can see things as they are, which step by step and in a flash can realize the original nature of everything. Beginner’s mind is Zen practice in action. It is the mind that is innocent of preconceptions and expectations, judgments and prejudices. Think of beginner’s mind as the mind that faces life like a small child, full of curiosity and wonder and amazement.

6. Steve Jobs said: “We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.”

Reams of academic studies over the decades have amply confirmed television’s pernicious mental and moral influences. And most TV watchers know that their habit is mind-numbing and wasteful, but still spend most of their time in front of that box. So turn your TV off and save some brain cells. But be cautious, you can turn your brain off by using a computer also. Try and have an intelligent conversation with someone who plays first person shooters for 8 hours a day. Or auto race games, or role-playing games.

7. Steve Jobs said: “I’m the only person I know that’s lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year…. It’s very character-building.”

Don’t equate making mistakes with being a mistake. There is no such thing as a successful person who has not failed or made mistakes, there are successful people who made mistakes and changed their lives or performance in response to them, and so got it right the next time. They viewed mistakes as warnings rather than signs of hopeless inadequacy. Never making a mistake means never living life to the full.

8. Steve Jobs said: “I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.”

Over the last decade, numerous books featuring lessons from historical figures have appeared on the shelves of bookstores around the world. And Socrates stands with Leonardo da Vinci, Nicholas Copernicus, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein as a beacon of inspiration for independent thinkers. But he came first. Cicero said of Socrates that, “He called philosophy down from the skies and into the lives of men.” So use Socrates’ principles in your life, your work, your learning, and your relationships. It’s not about Socrates, it’s really about you, and how you can bring more truth, beauty and goodness into your life everyday.

9. Steve Jobs said: “We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”

Did you know that you have big things to accomplish in life? And did you know that those big things are getting rather dusty while you pour yourself another cup of coffee, and decide to mull things over rather than do them? We were all born with a gift to give in life, one which informs all of our desires, interests, passions and curiosities. This gift is, in fact, our purpose. And you don’t need permission to decide your own purpose. No boss, teacher, parent, priest or other authority can decide this for you. Just find that unique purpose.

10. Steve Jobs said: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Are you tired of living someone else’s dream? No doubt, its your life and you have every right to spend it in your own individual way without any hurdles or barriers from others. Give yourself a chance to nurture your creative qualities in a fear-free and pressure-free climate. Live a life that YOU choose and be your own boss.
