The Screen

 The Screen
 The screen
 That presence
 So widely seen
 In our homes
 Carried in
 Our hands
 In every land
 Or desktop
 Servers galore
 In their memories
 They can store
 And they do
 Spit out
 Whatever gets
 Put into them
 By us
 Coming thru
 Our hands
 The minds &
 Hearts of man
 That screen
 That influence
 I have seen
 Thick or lean
 Large or small
 Speaks & calls
 To us all
  Thru the light
 Of that flickering
 Images of good
 Images of bad
 Calling our names
 Playing their games
 With everyone
 Angels & demons
 Portrayed in fantastical
 It’s really so sad
 Because both do exist
 In the midst
 Of the lives of man
 So be careful what 
 You allow 
 To be fed into
 Your mind
 Look for truth
 & learn
 to wisely turn
 from that
 Invasive Screen!



Everywhere we go today we cannot get away from the media hype(even in my gym) which surrounds us on all sides, slicing soundlessly through the air unseen. Please be careful what you expose yourself and your children to. Here’s a poem I could not stop myself from writing.


Senseless Speech,
Buss, whir,
Chew out words.
Out in weightless air
Dead words drop lifeless
to cold, hard ground.

Careful, careful
Do not listen.
Everything is not good
In senseless speech.
Hide, do not cause your
pale ears to bleed!

Media, hype, lustful
For all money.
Beware the wrathful
Fierce fingers that search,
Dig deeply into pockets
Thinly stretched.

Guard your mind,
Here it comes.
Sensation seekers,
Senseless speech
Gets spoken to
Keep fat paychecks.

Everywhere we turn
On display on screens
Small and large.
Beware the fools, charlatans
Of senseless speech,
Guard, protect yourselves &
Run, cover the little ones.
