American Intifada (Randyjw; December 10, 2019)
There was a mini Ft Hood jihadist murder spree at Pensacola Air base; now there is an anti-Semitic murder spree in a shootout, with dead an injured, at a kosher supermarket in New Jersey today. These are the types of incidents which Israel faces daily, in addition to rocket attacks from Arabs. The first act is what is termed as a war of attrition — getting rid of the enemy slowly, but surely, as opposed to eradicating many in one fell swoop. This is anti-Semitism in action. This is Jihad in action. Getting used to it yet?

Untitled (Randyjw; November 14, 2019)
I recently remembered this long-forgotten poem I’d written at a young-adult period during my lifetime. I guess that deep, and recent, grief in my life has somehow jogged this from the recesses of memory. I thought I’d include it here, now. I believe this completes my entire work-to-date now, except for individual poetry written to individuals, which may have never made it to these pages.
When I am torn with grief
and aching for a love I cannot yet understand
You smile, knowingly,
and say you understand.
Accepting this statement at face value,
I go on.
Once again, the hurt swells up inside me;
I dare not return while the crowned king
reigns his one-man kingdom.
