Dear Holland, The Sea Rises

Your outlook has grown penible
How do you wish to continue?
Your story isn't credible,
If taxes should solve the issue

This is about rolling up sleeves
And, bonus, the air is dirty
Money is good enough for thieves
Real life sandbags we must carry

Handing over natural tasks
To governments, only corrupts
You couch potatoes sip your flasks,
While the sea around you erupts

Money isn't gonna save you
Why not stop the state robbing you

Christmas Lunch At The Bank

Three decades ago, luxury
Was keyword at banks' restaurants
Deer, wine, lobster were price worthy
It was approved by accountants

Now, the state owns their business
Christmas lunch is soda and cake
Now, staff enjoy simple finesse
Good times at good price may not be fake

Outside, it's dark and there's no cold
Inside, young people of all creeds,
Enjoy what their plate may behold
Sharing meals belongs to nice deeds

Banks had to learn humility
Sharing now needs simplicity

Some doors are a figure of speech
They block advanced knowledge to some
The boldest and smartest can breach
Boundaries that leave others numb

Other doors open to new realms
They give option to some creatures
New perspective excites or calms
All is destined to new ventures

People, animals lock their world
Even plants use theirs for the same
Creatures like their lives safely furled
No others need to see the game

Freedom is ample with limits
And still, not everyone fits

Recently, this, I discovered:
Belief & trust climb a stairway
Like a game, it's steps are numbered
Not just like a computer play

First, you protect yourself from harm
That is when you reach level one
Then, a story does more than warm
With faith, level two has been done

To protect, belief, and exchange
That's when trust reaches level three
People are heroic or strange
Yet, confidence can set them free

Let's thank humanity's beauty
Let's gather willingness to see

People always sail their own ship
None of them knowing where it goes
Even when they well-plan the trip
The span between those may cause woes

Someone's word may give assurance
We strive to be independent
So, daringly we take our chance
Yet, that may feel insufficient

We always love the good news ship
So we need others, now & then
Truth is, we like any news ship
Thinking, else, we're stuck in the den

Even when we're rolling smoothly.
We like a push before we're free

I've always believed that our heart
Is our best compass to choose with
When life's basics want a kick start
Intuition is not some myth

Just this ~ no one accepts no facts
Or skipping of confirmation
We need another's words & acts
Concerning a situation

Communication starts unseen
Be it love, business or else
Heart's energy is always clean
It can travel any place else

Intuition is our compass
Unless we're a lazy badass

Humans want standards for their thing
For objects, products, plants, movement
And mostly they are labeling
Their physical environment

On behavior, preference
Standardization may not work
Rules stream well in wishes' defense
It may not be truth they uncork

A person's mind is specific
Specifics do have their own rule
Wise be to skip the generic
Standards may even harm a mule

Ourselves, our heart goes where it must
Standard judgements may be unjust

Debt Song

We've come to harbor wrong ideas
About what debt and finance are
Real value isn't the same as
Printed sheets without counter ware

The USA understands this
They ignore created money
They know that a present it is
Stupid Europe is not so free

Citizens and businesses
Can lend real value to others
Return theirs, without finesses
Real borrowing rarely smothers

Don't repay created money
Be real now & set yourself free

See Think Know

A diamond seems a shining light
Or a star at greater distance
Maybe light means nobility
Or quick accessibility

Personalities aren't easy
Perspective directs perception
Mind, perception make honesty
Think & feel may be election

In creation there's no secret
It holds positions we can't see
Energy goes without regret
You may, may not understand me

From another angle no change
New just means to me a thing strange

Shadow & Light

It's something people must live by
We are shadow and we are light
I have bad qualities, they might
Somehow become my evil eye

How to make those look some better
Openness is a warning flag
Or it's a reference letter
I try to share from my own bag

We may chase those we love the most
Too much emotion invested?
Life is not always a safe post
When our perspective is tested

Be honest & mild to yourself
And give others good from your shelf

Time is a line that's forever
No end, easy to imagine
No start, that takes more endeavor
Do we accept no origin

Night and day are true mystery
Every object has its own
Abrupt end awaits history
Time goes on when planets are blown

Planning of endings doesn't work
The apocalypse did not come
To some people a source of irk
Dreaming is what remained to some

Even God must work within time
Or could it be that God is time
