She Wants The Parasites OUT!

images71UPHAN1

When the earth gets to shaking, she wants the parasites out.
She’ll heave and fuck us up; she knows what she’s about.

She’s tired of our nukes and fed up with fracking shit.
We just take and take and take, never knowing when to quit.

She gets torn all to pieces as we’ve got to dig so deep.
We’ll soon be a’ wailing or be dying in our sleep.

Oh, they say this ain’t the big one; she’ll calm down for sure.
Don’t worry unless they tell you to, your fright is premature.

When you’re feeling all secure, she’s gonna send your ass to hell.
If you think that she’s not had it, when she does, it’ll be farewell.

….and by all means, keep fracking(hydraulic fracturing), ’cause it’s good for the earth see!

Ohio is setting new permitting conditions in earthquake-sensitive areas and has halted drilling indefinitely at the site of the March quakes.

COLUMBUS — State geologists in Ohio have for the first time linked earthquake activity in the Marcellus Shale basin to hydraulic fracturing, confirming the suspicions of activists pushing for drilling limits in the interest of public health.

State Oil & Gas Chief Rick Simmers told The Associated Press on Friday that a state investigation of five small tremors in the Youngstown area last month has found a probable link.

He said Ohio is setting new permitting conditions in earthquake-sensitive areas and has halted drilling indefinitely at the site of the March quakes.

Don’t stop now! Frack, baby frack!!!

You Don’t Give A Damn About Your Grandkids!

Now take your damn foot out your lying mouth! A 'better' world, indeed! Shelve THAT shit!
Now take your damn foot out your lying mouth! A ‘better’ world, indeed! Shelve THAT shit!

“I want to leave a better world for MY grandkids!” No, you don’t. Because if you did, you could not look your grandkids in the face knowing all the while that you have contributed in many ways to the irreparable damage that is being done to their home, the earth. That which sustains us.

How many of us even glance up when we hear about ‘fracking’ or hydraulic fracturing? How many of us have actually went to a fracking site to act as a human shield until we’re hauled off? Can you just imagine what it would look like if every person who had ever uttered that phrase, “I want to leave a better world for MY grandkids,” actually showed up? Oh, yes! We are SO good at talking the talk, but when it comes down to doing a damn thing about actually trying to leave this godforsaken planet better off for our grandkids, we simply get into our SUVs and head to the mall to buy more useless plastic that we know is detrimental to the health of this planet, but we do it anyway.

Another new mantra, “go green!” And yet, we head to the gas station nevertheless. We crank up the heat and the AC because by doing so, we’re leaving a better world for our grandkids.

“I want to leave a better world for MY grandkids, honey!” Off to shop for the grandkids. Oh, they just need so much. They need a new toy, new clothes, new shoes, new cellphones, new tablets, new this and new that and we don’t even stop to consider that for everything we purchase, there is more than just the purchase price you pay. Some part of this planet is fucked up every time a purchase is rung up. When you hand over that plastic card, this planet suffered for it. Our health suffered for it. Your grandkids health suffered for it and you don’t really give a damn. Your useless platitudes don’t matter. Every time you turn a light on, a power plant has to make sure that power flows to your home because if it doesn’t, you are going to piss and moan about how you pay for service and by all the christians in hell, they’d better turn your shit on, quick fast and in a hurry or you’ll rain down hell fire and brimstone on their ass because you’re leaving a better world for YOUR grandkids, remember?

Who the fuck do you think you’re fooling with that shit you spout about leaving a better world? You’re not even fooling yourself because deep down, you know that once they plant your ass, that’s it, the grandkids can just fend for themselves. The only reason you spout that nonsense is to join in and ‘chorus’ with those who are just like you, the pretenders. Those who pretend to give a damn, but only up to a certain point. The point being when if it inconveniences you in any way, then to hell with the planet and the grandkids, but you’ve got to talk the talk as long as likeminded shits are standing around holding court with you.

Let us not forget that you really showed those grandkids how much you wanted to leave them a better world when they got everything that money could buy for Christmas and you strutted around like a peacock, all full of yourself because you made your grandkids smile when they came over and saw the piles of earth destroying junk underneath a tree that was dug up to accommodate your festive holiday spirit. Never mind that trees supply us with oxygen so that we can take our next breath. And now that tree is lying up against the curb, waiting to get picked up by bulk trash pick-up. How convenient. Much, much too convenient. Because that’s part of the problem. We’ve got too many conveniences and they’ve made us fat, lazy, complacent and apathetic, but we still intend on leaving a better world for our grandkids. We just haven’t gotten around to actually doing anything about it yet and the sad fact is that we never will!

“A mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.” Here are some other quoted figures regarding the amount of oxygen produced by a tree:
“A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs./year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.”

“One acre of trees annually consumes the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that produced by driving an average car for 26,000 miles. That same acre of trees also produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year.”

If we start to produce more carbon dioxide than the trees can take in and in turn, produce oxygen, what do you think will happen to that “better world,” you intend to leave for YOUR grandkids? You want new hardwood floors or do you want your grandkids to breathe? Right! You want new hardwood floors! Naturally!

The Seasons of Life

'The eternal flow of life'.
‘The eternal flow of life’.

Will you love me when I’m old and grey?
Will you love me when my beauty fades away?

Just as the seasons change from summer to autumn to winter to spring,
a rose cannot in full bloom cling.

The petals soon wither and fall to the ground,
making nary a whisper, nary a sound.

So, too must a tree shed its leaves,
at the touch of a brisk autumn breeze.

Winter’s scene, so stark and bare,
snow white drifts and cold, crisp air.

The seasons do change, they come and go.
We are part of the cycle, part of the flow.

As we come full circle to the final act.
Every life must end and that is a fact.

Live long, love true and age with grace.
For The life of the rose, we too shall face.

‘Ashes to ashes and dust to dust’.
We’ll return to the earth as everything must.

The cycle renews, the phoenix takes flight.
Life is reborn at the Angels delight.
