Tuesday Poetry: Cynicism

the world lacks in Enlightenment
it chooses instead to thrive on stupidity
the issue is not so much genetics
or even lack of education
people are lazy and won’t do the work
researching politics or religion before a choice
this is too hard and boring
so everyone eats Shit and watches Morons
to be entertained and not have to think
when did thinking become such a chore
women think with their Hearts; men think with their Dicks
no one uses their Brain

Poetry Monday: The Plumber

My mission is simple
to save the girl
while battling monsters
squashing their heads
and plants that spit fire
dodging the balls
guys hiding inside clouds
flying turtles
My mission is simple
I said before
kill the ugly Dragon
and save the girl

Coffee and Contemplation: Horns by Joe Hill

This is the second novel of Joe Hill’s I’ve read. I enjoyed this one so much more than his first novel “Hear-Shaped Box.” You can read my opinion of that at This Post from back in March. The writing and the story in “Horns” was superior to Hill’s first novel and compared to most novels I’ve read. It is one of my all-time favorites. The was a movie adaptation starring Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple. The first time I saw the movie, I enjoyed it. When I saw it years later after reading the novel, I felt the movie was terrible. Don’t watch the movie.

I wouldn’t call this novel scary though it does deal with a lot of adult content. The horror aspects are more supernatural than gory. The monsters in the story are only humans. The story may give the reader a different view of the devil and its purpose. This novel was a lot of fun to read. It has a strong suspense, thriller vibe in some parts. If there were no supernatural themes to the story, it could have easily been film noir mystery. I am definitely looking forward to reading more by Joe Hill. 

I recommend this book to everyone. It may not be for younger teens or children.
