Happy June 30th Georgie! (A TOON Sampler)






















===============================

a cruelty of April

Iraq escalates.
A consequence intended
April is cruel.

Deaths wont slow the smirk,
His Candyland panderings
No blood red backdrops.

Teenagers fall
To the liberated who
So hate their freedom.

Iraq escalates.
Unintended consequence?
April is cruel.

4. you're welcome...
(and of course, the Eliot reference was intended)

What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief, 23
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
