'08 Silver Lake Calendar: April

It began in April ...first Martin...then Bobby two months after... then the bloody un-Democratic Convention ...a few minutes ago ...those under 45: have NO idea...what 1968 was like...most Boomers aren't over it yet... oh~when~will ~they~ev-er learn... young men~ev-ery~one...gone~to grave-yards ~ev-ery one... oh~ when~will~they ~ev-er learn...what Would the country be, if they had lived...the saddest words ever spoken "...what might have been..."
--instead of: the toadies for oil, raping national resources....using up blood, treasure --everyone's future...Nation's trees -parks -mountain tops -Guard -good will...expanding government, debt ...engorging pockets... using fear to steal rights --and power, illegally... why couldn't First Baseball: get thrown out --in the other direction.... If you object to those views: All that is necessary for evil to flourish is for good people to remain silent. Bullies: interpret it as weakness, compliance. Hey: What did You do today --to quell the bully-boys' disarray? Well, it's spring --they can't Can't take that A~way --Can't stay --forever, they have to Get Out one day. Suck-fest won't be going on Next Spring!

pril Calendar - Silver Lake: this month a change. Instead of all at once, Calendar will be posted one week at a time. --More timely, not so much work, all at once, for the author, maybe easier on you; plan accordingly and Bon Appetite/April!

April ...Formal Month for Poetry ...funny, always think of winter as best month for that....
