Fingers, A Misshapen Bean & The Rat

Fingers
"Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall" (Da. 5)

King Belshazzar to Daniel~
"If you can read this writing and tell me what it means, you will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain placed around your neck, and you will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.”

The Bean~
Well I stumbled into the kitchen this morning and while my cereal was cooking, I peeked inside the fridge at my cheesecake (generally this type of desert needs to set overnight) ..hmm? So, I hurried up and threw some more coffee beans in for a second cup, when I kept hearing a clink..(one obstinate bean that defied the sharp blades of my grinder)? Upon further inspection, I noticed it was rather misshapen..so I tossed it..when I began humming the tune byUB40 (There's A Rat in Me Kitchen).Well, lacking any self control, I proceeded to eat each and every soft delicate morsel
before either cereal or coffee were finished (not a regular habit I can assure you)
Well, I tell you..this is no happy story -but it's short (sort a) , just an excerpt with my musings. More importantly, I've included a poem I seriously doubt would of materialized if the likes of Leno had his way when I was a child!

The Rat & The Writing
Well, I glanced over at an article which came via my e-mail and read the following
"A band of six Democrats in the California state Senate voted today to advance a bill..."
Well I've heard of a "Band of angels~ coming after me, coming for to carry me home", and A Band of Brothers" but this?  In short-
"This costly (of course) state mandate targets children for sexual brainwashing, behind the backs of parents, teaching boys and girls to admire (isn't that classic) those who engage in homosexual, bisexual or transsexual behavior." (your probably not too surprised)
A proposal by California State Lawmaker Mark Leno (who's partner died of AIDS and smile looks even cheesier than my cake!

My proposal (notice I'd been reading through the book of Daniel) is just yank your kids out of Government schools? The writing's on the wall!
Under the California Sun

I’d longed once,
For a days Promise
When my feet rose to greet-
Sidewalks warming
Neighbor kids
&
The walls we’d climbed
For pomegranates ripe
Under the California sun

No jewels decked
My hands or neck
Just the gold in my hair
With the earth it collected

Crimson juice
And scattered peels
Left on curbs
We sat along

My heart, it skipped a beat...
Was but youth, in its season
Under the California Sun~

LOVE the poem, as usual. Especially the last verse! I had not heard anything about this bill, and at first thought that Jay Leno had gotten mixed up in politics! I think more than one politician is not a band, maybe a fillibuster??

Beautiful poetry...yes I thought you were referring to Jay Leno also! I'm not sure about the bill myself since I have not been following it closely. Hope you are able to fix the photos for your blog. Love your header!

Hi Regina, I'm back! I'm starting to read - 3 weeks offline!(mostly) ;[

Regina said...

Yes I agree there is something wrong with blogger.
Maybe they are updating or something like bug. It so slow right now.
Love your pretty header.

Happy new week my friend.

"I started taking Magnesium Oxide 250 MG twice daily and the skipping stopped."

This is what I have found from the Internet about heart skips a beat. It may help. (lllloooolllll).

Sorry for this senseless comment. Having too much pressure from work.

Have a good day.
