Not Rasputin

A man once said, “True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing”. We are talking about Socrates, the great Greek philosopher (470 BCE to 399 BCE). He died defending his ideas and beliefs adamantly before the law. Ironically, he fought that he knew he knew nothing.

He knew he knew nothing? Nothing? Which dimension are we talking in?

Once, an oracle announced, that no one is wiser than Socrates. Baffled by this news, Socrates went on a search to find someone wiser than him, to prove his friend wrong 😆. As you might have guessed, he never found one.

Socrates himself wrote nothing, his ideas were spread by his small circle of followers. His admirers consider him as a man of great insight, wisdom, and analytic skills. I am mostly fascinated by the events leading to his death. (Rasputin, you listening? )

Searching for the truths of the universe…

PARTY FEALTY. | The BUTHIDARS

Way back in 2016 Donald Trump had a big lie in his back pocket. It was about how the ACA was a social security benefit and was therefore being paid for from the taxes of those who worked for the benefit of all the undocumented immigrants and people of colour. The lie was ACA had to go and would be replaced by another system designed by the Republicans which would be much better. The PINO (President In Name Only) did not allow for the fact that many Republican voters liked the ACA and didn’t want it to end. They got their wish since 4 years later the plan still stood and no other plan had been put forward to replace it. Source: PARTY FEALTY. | The BUTHIDARS

Walk into May

Politically Poetic

Birds chirping, dancing, 
Nesting on the trees.
Flowers in the garden 
Blossoms and fresh breeze. 

Hepatica everywhere, violet, white and blue
Waves gracious goodbye,
Awakens Elfin thyme to come through.

Unbroken, untouched, inviolate. 
Hiding among faded leaves, 
Covered the forest floor wild sweet Violet,
Proudly stands without greaves. 

Heart-shaped leaves of wild Ginger
Shaded away under trees. 
Hide from the sun, fear of danger
Whisper to the wind “Weee-weee.”

Stubborn Dandelions
Blow kisses to bees,
Attract them with sweet nectar,
Make some of us sneeze.

An elegant, naïve Dicentra, 
Silently weeping next to a tree.
With a bleeding heart, she is no longer central
Cause prickled Rose is the trustee.

Butterflies flutter around
Greeting each flower. 
Their love so profound
Wings of hope and mighty power.
