WELCOME TO A CRIPPLE'S WORLD From here on out, this blog will carry regular contributions by the author (me), concerning how and where the disabled are inaccurately portrayed, or more often than not, simply ignored by the media. Please feel free to read my previous posts, as this is something of a "stream of consciousness" blog, and one entry very well may, and often does depend on what has already been said. Please be aware, I am un-PC, a bit of a smart ass, and as Rodney Dangerfield said in "Back to School" "I don't take shit from nobody" :-D If the things said here offend you, then so be it. I am a strong minded, strong willed man with an opinion. However, my opinion can and does change over time, as I mature and learn more about the world. So, if you are in the mood to argue, or see something you disagree with, bring it on. Just be forewarned that what I consider "offensive" is not what the rest of the world may find offensive, and vice versa. Okay? Okay. photo is "extreme sitter" Aaron Fotheringham, who can be seen on Youtube or his website, AaronFotheringham.com, where he performs many of his wheelchair skate ramp tricks

Morpheus Evades-Dreams, nightmares, sometimes they are the same

The following is an attempt at epic poetry, inspired by a comment by our lovely AIM, here:  http://open.salon.com/blog/placebostudman/2010/05/14/im_reaching_the_end_of_my_rope_free_form_poetry

 

MORPHEUS EVADES

Morpheus evades

like a cocaine ravaged cockroach

dreams, nightmares, sometimes they're the same

Yet the day dawns with brightness

The warriors of our lives

will never abandon their cause

The weak will be lost

The strong will endure

Who am I?

Neither warrior nor coward

I am simply me

living, surviving, striving

to meet Morpheus in the night

"like a cocaine ravaged cockroach"! Great line Stud. This was a great Poem and you are getting damn good at writing them!
Scanner-

Thanks, man...it seems I am far more eloquent in short form than I am in long form exposition

Maybe Shakespeare was right when he said "Brevity is the soul of wit"
Oh that Morpheus. Beautifully done, P-stud. "dreams, nightmare, sometimes theyre the same" indeed.
AIM-

Thanks (sincerely) for making me do the research on who Morpheus was...of course, you goofed in your comment by saying Orpheus, who was the God of Poetry and music LOL

Just sayin' :-)
Hmmm....I guess Epic mythological poetry isn't as popular as i thought :-D

~CRICKETS!~
Love this, P....sorry I missed it last night....xox
Robin-

LOL I was talking about my earlier one last night. I wrote this this morning
I really love this one. My favorite part is the cocaine ravaged cockroach.
Caroline-

That really is a great image, isn't it?....can you just imagine a cockroach holding a mirror and a dollar bill to his nose?? LOL
LadyH-

Being a student of the art and science (and those 2 concepts are inextricably interlinked), all I can say is, sometimes it sucks to analyze things too much LOL
