Meet The Candidates


You advertise yourselves as righteous
Angelic souls free from relapse
As pure as the driven snow
All alternatives worse
Don’t flatter yourselves
We see through you
We possess
A test


This is a second, even later response to a writing prompt.

Weekly Word Prompt # 4

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. Our presidential candidates here are all jokes. It’s about who can buy the mot votes and step the hardest on the poor folks while making the poor believe life will be better if they get into the office.

  2. Excellent nonet and true expression of motivation from the GOP candidates. The Big T infuriates me. He is such a heartless man who hasn’t a clue what the words he speaks really mean to anyone. He is cruel. You got your message across so exactingly. The huge problem is he and they have not what we have in Brains, so they would not be able to understand. They haven’t the ability.

    Nonet is my next challenge. I did a Cinquain. Coming out on Saturday the 21st Nov. 15. Need to work on developing levels. Want to try the 2-4-6-8-2. It will be very similar to Haiku. I think it is exciting to get back in writing again. Poetry especially,

    • A won’t go on with the political critique. Enough said. I am glad you are enjoying getting back into (poetry) writing. And thanks for the kind words about my effort. 🙂

      • You are such a natural. At least that is the sense I feel when I read what you have written. Your words are so smooth. I must say I missed writing poetry and writing period. I was allowed to use my laptop until just this past week. I would jot down words in notebooks but didn’t have it in me to do any more plus I was forbidden. Too exhausting and not good for the healing. I couldn’t hold back any longer. So I keep getting sick. Not letting myself build up my strength. Took a fall the other night backwards. Now I have another infection. I am nursing it. It better be gone by end of week for our Holiday. Do have 3 appts this week. Getting new glasses for writing reading and the computer. See my chiropractor and my therapist. Hope it doesn’t wipe me out. I drove this past week for the first time in 3 weeks. It was weird and tiring. My arms weren’t use to the movements. Power steering is a breeze. Good to be back.

  3. Always good to complete step 1 before starting on step 2. Listen to your inner wise woman And don’t just listen. Hear! Let yourself heal properly before raring off again. 🙂 That’s what I do any way and it works better that way.

  4. The question is, how widely are the brains truly disseminated? I am for Bernie Sanders, of course. He seems honest for one thing, and he does not seem like he totally sold out decades ago so that he can collect a hundred thousand dollars (or whatever) for giving a speech. Hopefully Ben Naga you are right, and the collective “we” do have brains. But???

    • If folk could only wean themselves from all the brainwashing things might improve. I believe there is brain, heart and soul enough to pull us free, but distraction and disinformation are far too often king. When the “education” system and the media have been commandeered by the corrupt then to support and maintain natural righteousness, decency and even simple humanity become an uphill struggle. We do what we can to defend ourselves from attack and from error and strive to retain a sphere of personal sanity in which to survive. seed and bring forth fresh fruit.
