Final False Witness

 
I have
Been advised
That boot
Strap pulling
Up would
Be my
Salvation 
If only
I put
Real effort
Into smiles 
And winks
And wiggles
Perhaps I
Can use
The bootstraps
Wrapped twice
Around to
Pull myself
Up I
Will have
No use
For laceless  
Boots when
I am
Pulled up
To the
Proper stratum
Will you
Find it
Acceptable
For me
To do the
Pulling up
From your
Front hoe
The excessive
Burden of
Useless weight
Won’t stress
Your back
Already carried
By the tractor
Will you
Be compensated
Enough
For your
Bother if
A message
About your
Infinite generosity
Your compassion
Is written
In big letters
Thus protecting
Your stalwart
Reputation
You did
The best
You could
May I borrow
Your block
And tackle
I could
Jump from
The come
Along lever
I know
You don’t
Like for
Me to
Intrude in
Your space
Or plans
But it’s
Just once
And I
Have nowhere
I won’t
Ever ask
Again
I might
Have to
Tie my
Boot straps
To the
Tie-off rope
I shall
Do all
Set up
And arranging
But no
Matter what
I am sorry
You will
Be stuck
With some
Clean up
But it
Is just
This one
Time  finally
Pulled up
By my
Bootstraps
And you
Can gossip
With whomever
You like
After all
You have
Suffered
Sacrificed
Tolerated
You deserve
To be allowed
This final
False witness

Hollow Flesh

.
.
His flesh is empty.
His voice is
The Black Wind
Carrying no message.
Behind his eyes
Linger screams
Of children,
Destroyed.
His ears are stoppered
With deceit and lies.
He is death
Clothed in
Platitudes.
He is Hollow Flesh.

Gaslighting 💔 Difficult Questions

Gaslighting
Difficult Questions –“Asking for a friend” — doing some research for a story
💔

1. Can persons who, in their personal relationships, habitually, and with great cleverness, and feigned reasonableness “gaslight” EVER sincerely apologize and express true remorse?

2. Can charming and accomplished persons, who habitually “gaslight” in personal relationships, EVER, be trustworthy in personal relationships?

3. Can persons who chronically “gaslight” EVER acknowledge to themselves, or anyone else, what they are doing?

4. Is it possible for persons, who are comfortable with “gaslighting”, to resolve, with TRUE INTENT, to change their behavior patterns?

5. Can persons who “gaslight” EVER even WANT to change behavior?
______________________________________________

Is there ANYTHING within a personal relationship that can curtail “gaslighting” or mitigate the damage?

Are any of the following feasible?
a. Choose neutral circumstances and talk, in an educational way, about gaslighting and consequences.
b. Whenever one becomes aware that gaslighting and/or deception is happening, call out the gaslighter.
c. Negotiate.
e. Seek professional counseling.
f. Give up and part ways, as much as possible.

________________________________________________

Is there anyway to make GASLIGHTING not be, at all, rewarding to the gaslighter?
________________________________________________

Most sources available, via the internet, suggest that {f. Give up and part ways, as much as possible.} is the only healthy scenario.

BEAR WAS FEELING FROGGY

TWO HIGHLY EFFECTIVE INSULTS
GUARANTEED TO GET RESULTS

BEAR … 11.20.2015

ONE MISERABLE DAY,
BEAR WAS
FEELING FROGGY.
WITH HER WEAPONS 
OF WORDS
SHE DEFLATED FAT EGO
AND OVER BLOWN
SELF IMAGE,
MUCH MORE EFFECTIVELY
THAN THE USUAL
RUDE GESTURES
AND SILLY FINGER BIRDS.

IF YOU TOOK ALL
OF YOUR KINDNESS,
THOUGHTFULNESS,
AND COMPASSION …
ROLLED IT INTO A BALL
AND SHOVED UP
YOUR OWN ASS,
YOU WOULD NOT HAVE
ENOUGH HOT AIR TO PASS
EVEN A TINY LITTLE FART.

IT IS A GREAT DEAL MORE FUN TO CHEW SAND,
THAN TO MAKE LOVE WITH YOU.
If you borrow these words,  be prepared for responses you may not expect.

Down Home Truth Punctures Mountain Top Bump Onna Log Deities

.
.
It took a lifetime
But Bear carried
Her burden basket,
As asked,
To the top of the
Slick glass mountain
Only to be told by the
Smirking Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities,
“You’ve got the wrong
Stuff in there.”
.
“Us Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities told
You to collect
The second scavenger list
Of goodies to bring to us first.”
.
“Take all this
Valuable heavy
Stuff back down,
Dig a deep hole,
And throw everything
In the hole and bury it.”
.
“Then bring back this
Other buncha equally heavy
Doodads of no value,
That is really the first list.
Hahaha, hohoho, hehehe”
.
“Then go back down
Dig up this second list
Of valuable heavy stuff
And bring that stuff
Up here again,
So that we can reject it
In the right order.
Hahaha, hohoho, hehehe.”
.
Did the weary Bear drop
Her burden basket?
.
Oh no.
Bear threw it down!!
Jumped all over the
Burden basket
And its valuable and
Heavy contents.
.
Then Bear threw
As heavy and sharp
As spear heads,
Some honest
Down home truths,
And a few heart-felt
Curses, as well.
.
The Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities
Laughed so hard they
Forgot to dodge
The harsh truth
And their hot air souls
Were punctured so that
They blurbbblububububed
Off the other
Side of the mountain
Like giant farting balloons.
.
The Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities
Were never missed.
.
Except the local mayor
Did notice their absence
On voting day.
.
Sadly, however,
Bear’s burden basket
Was smashed to nothing.
It had been a fine
And useful basket.
.
The End
