Is it edgier to hate the hater?

Is it cool to disengage?

We wring our hands

Shake our heads in disbelief

Why can’t those of other truth

see as we?

Starved for clear voice

We feast on our own

We hurl ourselves off cragged cliff

We charge against walled fortress

Beam with pride at the brilliance

of our echoes

March shoulder to shoulder

Shout in sound proof booths

Our truths the lies of others

Disdain our only common ground


Messengers of Marathon’s battlefield

Run in concentric circle

While Athens burns to the ground

About Phil

Hi, my name is Phil. I’ve managed to escape the corporate world, rid myself of excess belongings, travel the country extensively in my old Winnebago, and find a new home on a beautiful barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. I define myself as: a free spirit, a writer, a philosophical anarchist, a poet; a lover of nature, a lover of art, a protector of animals, as well as a devoted friend and partner
