Pinkie, these are amazing. Heartfelt, disturbing, emotional. Thanks for sharing these with us.

It means a tremendous amount to me you saw some merit in my work, Michele, thank you so much (smiley face). Dawg if I didn't find myself dashing off another ditty to Farrow not long ago--the young man really touched me. I've quite a tendency to be a fan girl, anyway (fan woman), but I've been very moved by him, his interesting and too often anguished back story and just him as a person (and big time prize-winning  journalist) with no thought as to his family heritage and baggage. Him on his own.  I was astounded when he indirectly and directly (as the famous celebrities do sometimes) showed me some attention several times after I wrote stuff on his page (not twitter, I'm not into that). I realized I'd made some sort of impression on him, however fleeting, and was gratified. I wondered if he was amused and also thought it a bit inappropriate when my gushing praise veered into admiring his physical attributes a few times. So I found myself penning the following:

Don't Laugh at Love

I know you're smart enough
not to laugh at love,
I know you say you're not my kind
that my sort of fan love for you 
can't really be real,
but my actions and words
should show you how I feel
and show what's on my mind,

I thought upon first hearing of you
"I will love him, he's special"
without first seeing you
so my first feeling
of fondness was "blind"
and in its on way, was true

no-one must ever hurt you,
you've already been hurt enough,
but you know all the slings, stones and arrows
serve to make you more tough,
and the things you had to hear
that were really, really rough

I don't begrudge you any
perks in life,
knowing how you've been
hurt by life
so please don't laugh at my love


I'm glad for you,
I'm sad for you,
I'm not bad for you
so please don't laugh at my love

The country is all torn up yet again by another atrocious abomination, yet another mass shooting with an assault rifle that makes it easy to kill many in a few seconds. This time in a place of worship again with Jewish worshipers yesterday, their holy day of Saturday. Their lives violently taken from them in a second. I was reminded of my punk rock anti-gun violence ditty I dashed off in an anguished rage. It seems appropriate for the aftermath.

As happens all too often, The Orange One made it worse (many charged he helps instigate violence) by saying the atrocity "had nothing to do with gun control." Really? If assault rifles had been banned or never been allowed in the first place, these mass shootings wouldn't be as common. He also made a joke about his hair a few hours afterward and then was tweeting about sports. On a day like yesterday!
