Dreams were made of nights like these:
stale tobacco blowing in the breeze,
beer spills left from the night before,
giggling faces flowing out the door,
cigarettes, whiskey, and wild crazy women
through the purple haze ever dancing and singing --
singing "Sex, and Drugs, and Rock and Roll."
We kept on dancing so we'd never grow old.
We were dancing shadows against the wall --
dark shadows in a flashing hall
where crimson and horizon blue,
pressed against a starker view,
We were pulsing beats that shook the floor
and rattled the windows ever more.
The ceiling ached from our refrain --
shrieking echoes of a primal brain.
We were disembodied troglodytes,
walking fish, stromatolites.
We were carbonated fire and ice,
permutations from the roll of the dice.

Gold punctuates dawn.
Bird bursts in celebration
no Ragnarok song.
Detritus pools gold.
The bite of winter’s herald
blasts two minds at war.
4 dog trudges, 2 human,
Crimson spectrum bleeds
pastel blues, brightening moods.
Hot water, cold air
condenses Lake Accotink.
Smoke on the water.
pace quickens after squirrels.
Odors tighten leash.
Breakfast beckons home:
bacon and eggs and coffeewith Crashing the Net.
What do I care if you’re a millionaire?
You don’t breathe my common air
What do I care about the shoes you wear?
You don’t follow my footsteps.
What do you care about the neighborhood?
You don’t feel the child who can’t read,
Who can’t compute without a calculator,
Who refuses to eat the free lunch
Not because he isn’t hungry
Not because he feels entitled,
But because you wouldn’t feed it to your dog.
What do I care about the car you drive?I’m not showing up in your arena.

Although I have a distrust of politicians, the political process requires somebody to work the democratic process, and if completely unattended to, and everybody disengages completely, those who care little about justice take the reins. The emergence of a reasonably apolitical appearing non-politician with a justice-based political platform deserves attention, which it probably won't get, because in all likelihood the message will be drowned out by noise.

Unite America Party-USA and Unite America Party of Kentucky Endorses Drew Curtis Independent Candidate for Kentucky Governor.
The Unite America Party-USA & Kentucky has formally endorsed Drew Curtis for Kentucky Governor because Drew Curtis has been the most receptive candidate to our Party’s platform and efforts to expand citizen ownership in our Commonwealth of Kentucky and throughout the USA and world.www.uniteamericaparty.org
The Unite America Party is a new political party with a mission to close the growing wealth and power gap between the top 1% and the bottom 99% — without taking existing wealth or property rights from the top 1%.
We are ordinary citizens from all walks of life, ethnicities, religions, creeds, and political affiliations. We are also independent thinkers who are more interested in “what’s right” than “who’s right.”
We agree with the majority of Kentuckians and Americans that the two major political parties are leading us to division, gridlock and financial ruin and we have a plan to turn that around and make Kentucky & America better for all (100%) of its citizens.
Martin Smith-UAP-Kentucky, Chairman
Dr. Norman Kurland-UAP USA, National Chair
