“POLYAMOROUS LIVING?” by http://JTK.CA

Polyamorous Living? I’ll pass. I don’t want to hear, “Let’s just be friends,” from more than one person at a time.

“THE BUCK STOPS WITH SUSAN SMITH” by JTK.CA

“THE BUCK STOPS WITH SUSAN SMITH” by http://JTK.CA

The buck stops
With Susan Smith,
And we slay our kids
With impunity.

Strapped in her car,
Her children roll into the river,
Drowning in her “troubled life”;
They breathe nothing but water
Until they can breathe nothing.

She continues breathing,
And her truth’s deceiving.

She makes up stories
And excuses
To explain the child abuses,
And she mourns their loss
Because it’s not her fault.

She was abused,
So she abused her sons
To the point of death.
I suppose that makes her
Better than her abuser.

*

It’s easy to lay blame,
But we’re the very same.

The buck stops
With Susan Smith,
And we slay our kids
With impunity.

Strapped in our wombs,
Our children are burned in a river of salt.
We were assaulted by troubled lives,
So we assault our children
Because they’re just more trouble.
We rip them from their safety bubble.
Their little hearts stop beating.
From truth we are retreating.

We make up stories
And excuses
To explain the child abuses,
But we don’t mourn their loss
Because it’s not our fault,
And besides, our lives take precedence.

If women’s rights provide
For ending a separate life inside,
Then why not let Susan Smith
Control the destinies of those outside?

*

We kill our kids
With impunity.
The Culture hunts Smith down.
We say that she should die,
And the media gives us immunity.

“MOST OF US DISAPPEAR (Selfie And Poem)” by JTK.CA

































“MOST OF US DISAPPEAR” by http://JTK.CA

Most of us disappear,
Forgotten to the arc of history.

Instead of seeking to be remembered,
We should simply be memorable, in the here and now.
Love and be loved now.

Give love, more than seeking it,
For love is the only contagion everyone wants to receive.
If you give it, it will come back to you
But don’t look for it, because it will wait to surprise you,
In its own time, not on your schedule, and not from your pleas.

The more you seek love,
The more it will elude you.
The more you give love,
The more it will surprise you,
Because love is giving, not taking.
Anyone can take.

So don’t ask how history will remember you.
Don’t live life chasing your own legacy.
Your legacy is none of your business.
Your business is to give love now.

And, by the way,
If you think I’m judging you, I’m not.
You see, this, like many of my poems,
Is a sermon to myself.

Dad was a pastor,
And, perhaps, so am I.

“MY CONDOLENCES ON YOUR IMMINENT DEMISE” by JTK.CA

“MY CONDOLENCES ON YOUR IMMINENT DEMISE” by http://JTK.CA

I just thought of a great line for a movie villain:
“My condolences on your imminent demise.”
— Copyright © Jonathan Tad Ketchen

But seriously, death is imminent for us all:

One wrong step
On a mountain trek.

One wrong word
When silence is preferred.

One wrong stare
Into the eyes of a bear.

We all have it coming.
Life is fatal,
Our fears, prenatal.

So,
“My condolences on your imminent demise.”

Life after death
Or nothing at all?
Death still sucks.

Shucks!

“QUESTION TO CHRIST ON THE CROSS” by JTK.CA

“QUESTION TO CHRIST ON THE CROSS” by http://JTK.CA

Did “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”
Bear the seed for the tree that You’re dying on?
Did that first cursed tree
Send its twisted genetic code
Through the millennia’s soils
Until this wretched day
When “Love” is crucified
Upon a new condemned tree
Called “Justice”?

“WAVERLEY PARK is my PLANETARIUM” by JTK.CA ::: I often do my superzoom moon and planets photography in Guelph, Ontario’s Waverley Park, within walking distance from my place. I used my 63 times optical zoom SONY DSC-H400 digital camera for these shots. The close-up shots of JUPITER WITH 4 JOVIAN MOONS and EARTH’S MOON were shot at the full 63 times optical zoom, which will still likely be shrunken by the time it reaches you, here on social media.

“BODIES OF WATER . . . FLOWING” by JTK.CA

“BODIES OF WATER . . . FLOWING” by http://JTK.CA

River rolls.
Ocean laps the shore,
Getting sand on its watery tongue,
Sand which dissolves
In the movement of
Musical Nature.

Seas seethe
In the storms of life
And in their strife
Create a rhythm of chaos.

Movement mounts
At the foot of the mountain
As the water comes crashing
Against its side
By way of a moon-mastered tide.

But grass is green
Around the serene
Lakes controlled
Like islands in the land.
And if they flood,
It’s from water from above
Dancing staccato
On their tympanic surface membranes
Rippling in the rain.

We humans
Made of water — sixty-five percent —
Then are certainly meant
To move with the tide of life
And even dance in strife.

“TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS” by JTK.CA

“TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS” by http://JTK.CA

Tomorrow never knows
What today may bring.
Today is in the past,
Unremembered by the now of the future.

The race is to the finish,
Not to the starting line.
Tomorrow is the end beginning future things.
Today began the race of time.

At the vertex of the clock (unseen by human eyes),
Yesterday, Tomorrow, Today are three in one,
Two of three always in disguise, hidden from our eyes.
One stands clearly
Until the next Yesterday-Tomorrow-Today,
Backward/forward — whichever way.

“INTELLECTUAL WASTELAND” by JTK.CA

“INTELLECTUAL WASTELAND” by http://JTK.CA

Burning witches.
Burning books.
Burning opponents
For their looks,
Or so we say,
Since we won’t play
With divergent ideas
That come our way.

Burning forests
Since we hate trees
For culturally appropriating our soil.
Soon we find ourselves
In an intellectual wasteland —
A wasteland of our own creation,
Created through destruction
Of everything unpopular
Until nothing is left
But the anarchy of one view —
The view of the mob mentality.

Forward we march
Into our glorious future
With our blinders on —
While reality closes in on us like an army
Without our knowledge,
Since we’ve deliberately blinded our own peripheral vision.

Freedom of speech
Was designed to protect unpopular speech,
Since popular speech does not need protection.

http://JTK.CA ::: I gave someone my card. All that was printed on it was: 

JTK.CA
 

Then the dumbest thing came out of their mouth. “So, do I Google that?” 

Um, no! Why would you Google something I’ve already given you the address for? Just go to it. Don’t Google it! 

Duh! I thought things would be easy having a short, simple website address 

JTK.CA
