Breathe*Deep

The essence of all the beauty which surrounds you...

All the joy that fills the cup of creation...

Golden*Rule

Escalating profits of war, boosting profits of speculation, raising profits of compensation, ensuring profits of corporations, hemorrhaging profitable jobs, bleeding profitable markets, incurring debt, bubbling gold, the domino of commercial doubt, teetering toward a gilded depression of unprecedented scope and scale...

Trampling*Thieves

Thieves, thieves, tramps and thieves, money changers lives are better than thee,

Pay, pay, more and more, buckets of cash shoveled through Wall+Street doors,

Loss, loss, transferred to thee, taxpayer bleeds with interest paid to corporate greed,

War, war, here we go, jobs to stimulate the weapons and recruitment flow,

Warriors*War

War is the product of those employed to sacrifice life, liberty, treasure, relationship, family and trust, to the belief that others will show concern, care and regret for those who exist to fight, so that others may survive and still others may truly live,
