no_apologies: (Excited Charlie B. Barkin)
First, I want to mention my new favorite website: www.writing.com

The overall community, that has THOUSANDS of writers from all over the world - they are really nice. Generous, even! An anonymous person gave me a gift of an upgraded version of my account. It ends by the end of August. I like putting together folders to organize my stuff... Maybe by the time the temporary upgrade is over, I can upgrade up again.

There are contests to join, and there are other groups and communities out there about various topics. I've even met some very like-minded people, who are just as aware as I am in the world about the on-going mess of problems that put us all at great risk. One of them has been a truther and political activist for over a decade, and she travels across the country with her husband in a large truck.

On Writing.com, registered users are able to submit poetry, stories, and even other neat little things such as quizzes, polls, and crossword puzzles too.

Check it out, whenever! I love it. It's a great place to reach out, as well as a great place to interact with other writers.

no_apologies: (Rem!)
I wrote two, although one might not be finished yet. I'm not sure, since I especially don't have a title for it.

The other however... Last week, I saw the 1956 version of the movie 1984, based on the novel by George Orwell. I thought about that movie and how it compares to the on-going insanity I've been on about. I felt inspired, and wrote this (harsh and sarcastic, yet spot on). ...If you don't know about this novel or film, you really should. It's a warning about a very bleak future for us all. 1984 of the most significant fictional works in the history of mankind!


Orwellian World

"In God We Trust" is to trust in greed.
There's so many things we need!
To be free is a dream.
Let it fall from our reach!

We love to hate,
As we fiercely debate.

Forget about thinking!
It's all a waste!
To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

We are happy and safe!
We are happy and safe!

To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

As long as we don't
Go against the law,
We'll be okay!
We'll be okay!

We can do what we want,
As long as we have cash.
We'll work hard enough
To avoid economy crash.

Our government knows
What's best for us!
No need to question them!
Gotta love their free stuff.
There's no harm meant!

Forget about thinking!
It's all a waste!
To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

We are happy and safe!
We are happy and safe!

To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

As long as we
Do as they say,
We'll be okay!
We'll be okay!

War is peace...
Freedom is slavery...
Ignorance is strength...

Long live Orwellian World!
Long live Orwellian World!




I handwrote parts of this with a red ink pen for emphasis. I wanted to keep that for here.
