Angry little poem for today: Uninspired

Uninspired

Ain’t feeling much inspired today
Ain’t feeling much at all
Wouldn’t call it writer’s block
More of a border wall

Yeah, a wall should work just fine
Like in China, Berlin or Troy
History shows they never fail
Bring only peace and joy

Maybe if we dump the bunch
Drown out the vicious sound
Maybe like old Jericho
The walls could tumble down

If we listen honestly
Not a Trump, but a trumpet call
Singing building bridges
So much better than a wall

An angry little poem-cartoon-thingy: Transitive Suppository

(Allowing a moment of whining then moving on.)

Preamble

The new boss acts consultative
To consume cash creative
While agile with caring
Still has old-school moves

innovate
collaborate
standup straight
go team

Just a business decision
Just another reorg
We’re just moving forward
So out the backdoor

Thanks for the service
But you didn’t make the cut
There’s strings on that severance
So keep those mouths shut

So understand my feelings
To me you’re just a mob
I’m really not some asshole
Just trying to do my job

Transitive Suppository

acting like an
asshole
makes one
an asshole

it’s just a definition
asshole

Two Sentence Story: Half

Half

Yeah, she was white hot bright and fun crazy too, but, frankly, quite distant – almost translucent, as if some mindless turn on the journey to find herself left her lost in thought.  While disaster was assured, I couldn’t help thinking, “Half the fun is getting there.”

A Sporting Look At Commercial Drones

Repeating what I heard – just to make sure I got it right…

Amazon would like to use airborne drones to make deliveries. They claim to have emergency and special circumstance markets in mind. Though I suspect our skies will one day be darkened with clouds of “special circumstances”.

So, our hired-hands at the FAA have come up with a few zany rules regarding testing the flying package thing. Restrictions like a low altitude flight ceiling, line-of-sight monitoring and only-during-daylight operation are, of course, making Amazon a little crazy. But there is money to be made, so I’m pretty sure Amazon will survive the indignity of having to prove remote controlled flying packages are, of course, safe.

Yup, swarms of consumer goods cruising at low altitude, landing and taking off all around us, joyfully fulfilling the Amazon American Dream. I can see them now, flying low over the homes and property of the most heavily armed population on the planet. Small packages of joy, buzzing over a land where there are a nearly as many guns as people.

This could prove entertaining.

PS – I just saw an ad for a bean bag gun – designed especially for shooting at drones. Silly me, I failed to anticipate that a new hunting prey would, obviously, spur on new technology . (And another reason to get another gun!) In a meager attempt to contribute, I emailed the inventor asking if they had considered making retractable net cannons. Just as a suggestion.
