When Spies Run Free

“When Spies Run Free”

When spies run free, then why not me
Across the NSA?
I can record the campaign plans
Of billionaires with cares
The other side will not collide
Because we will assure their loss
I share the best intel with zest
When spies run free.

When spies run free, why not thee?
Uranium will glow
I will enrich my family
Pay to play in my prime
Run with the wind across the sea
And trade your country’s best
To reach the zone where it’s been stolen
When spies run free.

When spies run free, then history
May lay our secrets bare
Such theft can be a mockery
Of patriots called
To share their lights in planet nights
Men have no friends in treachery
The conscience gnaws despite the cause
When spies run free.

Keep on Going

Keep on going
The battles are tough
The war is long

Keep on going
You have the stuff
Your heart is strong

Keep on going
You have enough
The right the wrongs

Execution Morn

When the nighthawks have rested in their nests,
And iguanas have paused from their rodent-quests,
And dawn’s rays illuminate the dust motes
Drifting in the courtyard fenced from the sailing boats,

When the high priestess dangles from a rope,
Husband beside her, a gurgle in his throat,
Other traitors, condemned, gape from their cells
And clerks and guards throw up from putrid smells,

When the bridge boys drink coffee, take tricks,
As closed circuit screens blur and flicker,
And the chaplain mouths a prayer for the dead
While a fly buzzes ‘round her face and head,

The general calls the Commander-in-Chief,
Says, “The deed is done, Sir, what a relief,”
And an eagle, as though released from iron chains,
Hurtles through the sky like a king who reigns.

Scriptures for Mother’s Day

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. ( Proverbs 22:6, ESV)


Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. ( Exodus 20:12, ESV)

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. ( Psalm 139:13, ESV)

A gracious woman gets honor, and violent men get riches. (Proverbs 11:16, ESV)

The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. (Proverbs 14:1, ESV)

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD. (Proverbs 18:22, ESV)

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates. (Proverbs 31:10-12 and 25-31, ESV)

But standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. ( John 19:25-27, ESV)

365.

All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride.

~Sophocles, Antigone

 

366.

If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you’ll get along better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

~Atticus Finch, played by Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird

 

367.

Do you think he’s the murderer?

It’s worse than that—he’s an actor!

~Julian Fellowes, Gosford Park: The Shooting Script

 

368.

Hidden away behind the closed doors of aristocratic and bourgeois privilege, concealed under those ultra-respectable masks of black frock coat and veil, the green glow of corruption flickers into sight, steadies, and spreads everywhere, fostered by Lorrain’s horrified and complicitous gaze. This decadent detective is at one with the criminal he pursues, acknowledging openly that the representation of corruption is one of the most pleasurable forms that corruption can take. In this enterprise, art is the mask that both exposes and conceals culpability.
