Minka Kelly


Why should I give thanks?
The world is full of tanks and pranks.

Temptation is a tricky bit.
Go too far and evil fits.

Evil is a problem as well.
It destroys the solemn self in hell.

Animal soul suffers constraint due to design.
Purpose is the royal incline. 

There is a measure to imitation by emulation.
The pleasure of human station is rationed
for health with stealth for demonstration.

I slipped off the bow of the boat in my youth.
The chilly sail that followed was a sleuth for truth.

The wealth of seeking gain for me
is guided by that which is naturally clean.

The hearth, the home and family
are seen as self that varies how I see.

These are worthy for defense
in terms of the immediacy of sense.  

Community, the state and the nation
are seen as self with respect for social station.

Politics is for the promotion of legal security.
National and social policy has to be balanced for maturity.

Otherwise arms are forced by hate
for a story embellished by increased spending as fate. 

The child raised with praise is expelled from the shore.
Long labors by air, sea and land would become the chore.
Before he was to win advance in the doubtful war 
in the realm of language reduced from so much more
to the not yet parsed, he was to build the store
for banished principles restored galore
to the augural rite to divine the adored.

Sure succession would be settled in his line
to determine economic success in time
for belief in healthy living for long life 
for the long glory of the majestic knife
to excise strife from spending on tripe.

I fell into a cement basement shell at night
when we had been told that playing there would not be right.

I was cut by a board on my shin. 
Stitches resulted in a scar that grins. 
I learned that my own safety wins
protection from harm in the reduction of sin.

The causes and the crimes of fate would relate
to what the people were told they hate.

What high-mindedness stoked the fan
for what offense a view of heaven began
to persecute so brave or just a man?

His anxious life was involved in endless cares
exposed to want for want and war as snares! 

Do heavenly minds show such resentment
or exercise spite in human predicament? 

Rome did not engage in war without reason
They had nearly been destroyed by Gauls in less than one season.

They had replaced the king with consul as the head of state.
Two consuls worked a year to make their bargaining great.

Alexander had made empire expand
to protect Greece from the Persian hand.
His generals divided the conquered lands.

The conquered were allowed to govern their own
but people grew tired of foreign control.

Carthage was a sister to the city of Tyre.
They made wheels for ease and speed in transportational fire.

The wheels added carts to the cavalry.
The wielding of weapons acquired another platform for industry.

Carthage was willing to take Rome by siege.
Unarmed trade would have made this an ease.

It was well known by that time
that Assyria had dispensed with Israel's tribes.

Babylon had taken the conquered captive. 
Persia had released those for whom there was no ransom.

Those who developed the strength for independence
had the imperial imperative for expansion to test.

Past the Tiber's mouth across the sea 
sat Carthage as a Tyrian colony.

The people were studious of their trade,
but stoutness for war was also made. 

Phoenician Trade 

There is a god in us who stirs what we kindle
in sowing the seed of inspiration for each symbol
to the special right to see the face of the divine as simple.

Hidden in a grove of trees masked from every sound but a trickle
lies the heart of home celebrated like a riddle.

That impulse was sown in the love by Juno more
than for her own Argos or the Samian shore.

Here stood her chariot. Here, if her heaven were kind, 
sat the seat of the awful empire she had designed.

She had heard an ancient rumor fly
long cited by the people of the sky
that times to come should see some hero from Troy
would cause Carthage to be destroyed.

She thought the yoke of sovereign sway 
should lay on all the nations of the day. 

She could not forget the war she waged of late 
in using Greece to conquer the Trojan state. 

Meanwhile the smitten ocean moaned
from the tempest turbulent assault as it had grown.

The tumult vexed the deepest cave.
Neptune knew how to be brave.

He rose over the sea with his sovereign brow.
He saw how the escaping Trojan fleet had scattered bows.

Aeneas, the child as man, was overwhelmed with his men.
The mingling shock of wave and sky was Juno's vengeful strategem.

Her brother's royal glance did not fail to see
the violation of his authority.

He rebuked the wind. 
"This recklessness is a sin.

"You ride through heaven to stir these mountain waves.
It is against my will to save. Go away!" 

The storm was subdued swifter than his word.
As he began to speak, he was being heard.

The swelling of waves subsided as though they had rehearsed.
Light shown from heaven when the storm clouds dispersed. 
It was from this conquered state of storm that a hero emerged
to be tried by the trials of travel much like those Ulysses turned
but this Aeneas, the child of trials, would converge
on Rome with knowledge of the Phoenician birth
of Carthaginian mirth as born of the will to sacrifice the girth
of the male population in battle to control trade across the earth.

Rome destroyed Carthage in the Punic wars.
The fathers of the families who won were placed in a state to win more.

Republic was the form for the government that was in place,
but the victories were not achieved by political grace. 
They were won by battle to increase profit by trade.

Caesar and Pompei were locked in a race
for the general who could persuade the face
of the populace better than the Senate ways.

The Populares and the Optimates had inviable positions.
The force of forced inequalities insured violent conflict in the division of opinions.

Caesar won the battle and established hereditary succession.
The Senate disagreed to make the contention a contest for violent aggression.

Vespasian had the bible codified to make monotheism the religious form.
Roman government never allowed polytheism to transform.

When I had first learned to ski, I was challenged to go fast for fun.
I lost control, flipped and hit my head against a pipe. How dumb.

I had known better from prior lessons learned
but I let peer pressure overcome the caution I'd earned.

The Reformation used peer pressure as strength.
People were expected to reject human authority at length. 
The pope and the monarchy were to be seen as an unnecessary expense.

Luther and Henry VIII opposed the rejection of the aristocracy
but Calvin pressed hard to impose austerity through democracy.

Pope Gregory XIII had not renewed excommunication.
but Elizabeth I was presented with the large problem of insurrection.

If the Jesuits had never gone into England;
if the Pope and King of Spain had not sought to impose a catholic crown for the land;
if the Duke of Guise had not attempted to depose her majesty by his hand;
if Parsons and others beyond the sea had never been agents in the bloody band
with Throckmorton, Parry, Collen, York, Wil∣liams, Squire in their treacherous stand;
if they had not by their writings endeavored to defame their sovereign glands;
if they had not sought to have allured the hearts of Catholics from their allegiance grand; 
if they had not labored for the invasion of the islands by the Spanish fleet;
if the Spaniards were not known to be cruel in their proceedings;
if there there had been no speeches of racks and torture to cause pain with bleeding;
if the Puritans and Calvinists not been so aggressive for the popularity of austerity as greedy;
the state would have loved the divergence as a leaning. 
Imposition was not the goal for declaring the monarch as the Church leader.

Prayer was offered as an avenue to participation with petition for gleaning
the meaning for human being.

When the truck almost drove off the road into our teen age
I felt anger for the driver whether the threat was due to neglect or rage.

Driving was a responsibility that requires safety for self and others.
A truck was not a toy to employ towards the destruction of the druthers of teen wonders.

Memories flashed into mind out of many faces at the end of the day
away from the sidewalks where my shoe soles had traveled on the way
and the voices rose to form the afternoon roar as something to say
to hinder an old silence too familiar to play.

Parallel Bars 

When the farmer's son threw me around like a bale of hay
'Gymnastics will build your upper body strength' was what he chose to say.
I knew to take the advice at 'arms length' to show my resilience as pay.
I remember lean people in passing among you. 

There were throats in the clutch of a hope for rescue,
lips written over with striving on the gumshoe for the brand-new,
mouths that kiss only for love in the debut of beef stew,
records of great wishes kept as slept with to get through
that which was held long, prayed and toiled for with much to-do

Yes, wishes were written on your mouths and transcribed on your lips.
I read them when you passed by with a sea of soundless song in the swing of your hips.

When the burned grass of the drop zone showed the value of the 5 points of contact 
my feet screamed pain at the reduction to one point of bone spurring impact.

I was then given choice in military service.
I could have quit legally and retained dignity on the surface.

I chose surgery to remove the spurs leaving a marked reduction of my limp.
I served my time with the 82d Division as a partial gimp.

When the division almost went to Libya
it was related to events that took place in Lebanon and Syria.

We had been trained with the instruction of Chiron
to wait for the sound of the twenty four hour siren.

"Donne-moi voir de l'eau" 
Thoureau was the one who made the veto.

It's just as well.
War is hell.

Terrorism was a new thing in the American media.
It was paired with lack of term limits as the feed for the median Bohemian.
Thanks for the tree you put between me and the madness of the bullet.
That fluxion swayed seconds before the soundless raise of rifle and the finger pulled it.

When black ice took control of the pick up truck
I found the rock on the opposite side of 'this sucks.'
The praise of God included this as part of luck.
It could have been worse than the loss of the truck.

Black ice returned to move the moving van
in fishtails across the lanes of the highway span. 
The world looked silly all white from the side.
The wrecker put the van up right with my belongings scrambled inside.

There was nothing left to do, but drive on with the view
that the weather had improved.
Florida made for a different state of mind
than the one Montana had me find. 

The river rolls within us. 
The sea flows all around any fuss. 
The sea is the land's edge for sand, stone or moss. 
The water reaches the beaches where the toss
of wave hints of an earlier creation as boss.

The starfish, the sea turtle and the manatee
move in the pools of our ancient curiosity
with the more delicate algae and the sea anemone.

The brine tosses up our losses.
There lies the broken oar as half a cross.
The torn shirt, the rusted lobster pot
and the object from a foreign lot.

The sea has many voices. 
It has many powers and offers many choices.
The salt clings to the things which it adores.
The fog moves slowly across the water and over the shore.
The howl and the yelp are sounds from different voices
often heard together among the host of choices.
The creak is in the craft. The whine is in the rigging. 
The caress of wave swells to the menace of flipping
the tripping drops that crest the swollen spitting.

The distant note drifts as a warning 
of the approach of the headland that is forming 
dark shapes against the grey haze adorning
the space that the craft is aborting.
The tern sails and sings through the oppression 
of the silent fog as the rocking repetition 
of the tolling bell measures the swells in her mission.

The bell measures swells
rung by the unhurried tell
of time older than the tick that dwells
in the turn of the cogged gears in a clock shell. 

It is older than time counted by anxiety
lying awake, calculating the future of propriety,
trying to unweave, unwind or unravel impropriety in society
to piece together the past and the future with sobriety
between midnight and dawn, when the past was deceived by notoriety.

The future seems future-less before the morning watch
when time stops and is never ending along the notch
marked by the swell that is heard as though it was
from the beginning of cause
in the pause
between the clangs of the bell.
Constraint tells me what to do and how to sell
whatever gels as worthy for the cell
of a sale. 
I just need to choose a yogurt to feel hearty and hale.

I just need to know how to begin.
Rule constrains in order to win 
what is needed to live.

The heat has been so hot
there are times when I forget how to be thankful for what I've got.

The Hurricane has tested the building of strength and drainage.
The downward dip to the curve of the swale is like an inverted burial mound ridge.

Karl Marx followed Adam Smith in time.
He criticized that which Adam had defined as sublime.

Marxist analysis had this massive major flaw.
Political change was to be made with violence as the law.

The analysis has a value when detached from this.
It can be used to deter corporations from using government for personal bliss.

The state does not exist to make money easy with excessively limited public benefit.
It is an instrument to distribute the social contract in a way that suits the fit of it.

We are saying thank you over telephones, in doorways, in the backs of cars, in elevators,
remembering the forlorn torn from what had been born by the police at the door for the neighbor,
the eagle that soars and the beatings on stairs from traitors as waiters for the boring bore
as bourn past the saber of the tibor or tabor as the savior.

Law enforcement by government has to impose limitation on social relation otherwise.
Violence is only justified in defense against violent aggression as the crow flies.

Thanks for newness in old age.
Thanks for oldness for the new sage.

Thanks for health, the midday sun, the impalpable air,
for life with reduced strife and the increase in care;
for precious ever-lingering memory that bears
family and friends as the social element to be personally shared;
for all my days in debate for disagreement without violence;
for all that which is gained from learning in silence;
for gentle words, caresses, gifts from the foreign land of quiet;
for shelter, wine, meat and the appreciation of diet;
for beings, groups, love, deeds, words, books, colors and forms;
for all the brave strong men and women that work to make freedom the norm;
for the foreward spring as sprung in the cannoneers of song and thought as gold,
the great artillerists, the foremost leaders, the artists as captains of the soul,
for travelers out of myriads, to the long procession to the retrospective goal sown as known;
for distant, dim, unknown, young, old, countless and un-specified readers.
We never met and may never meet, yet our souls embrace that which is needed for believers.

I give thanks with gladness
and a soldier's well traveled sadness.

You are full of music, manhood, womanhood, childhood and infancy!
You are full of common employments, grain and trees.  

You are the voice of animals, the swift balance of fish,
the plip plop of rain drops and the motion of waves in sunshine kissed!       

You are the joy of my spirit un-caged! You strike from the lightning height!  
It is not enough to have this globe for a certain time. It's frightening.
I would have thousands of globes in a soul that is enlightening.

Face chance with the momentum of motivation.
Use anticipation to prepare for your participation in salvation.

Face chance with the spirit of strength
in your organization at length.

Say goodbye to every day before today.
You can shape your own outcomes by the way you play
and by what you say.

Watch chance to see how it changes
no matter what the range is.

The determination of merit in the establishment of status
is made by judgment with education and experience that matters.

Maturity is a location that respects the merit of experience.
Achievement is relative to the development of opposition to the imperious.

I will walk along the way ahead of the flux.
I will give thanks for the way I can shape my own luck.

I will tell people about what you have done.
I will rejoice in the success of what we have won.

I will be glad and rejoice in you from the start. 
I will give thanks for you with my whole heart.

9 Confitebor tibi

1 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; *
I will tell of all your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in you; *
I will sing to your Name, O Most High.
3 When my enemies are driven back, *
they will stumble and perish at your presence.
4 For you have maintained my right and my cause; *
you sit upon your throne judging right.
5 You have rebuked the ungodly and destroyed the wicked; *
you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.
6 As for the enemy, they are finished, in perpetual ruin, *
their cities ploughed under, the memory of them perished;
7 But the Lord is enthroned for ever; *
he has set up his throne for judgment.
8 It is he who rules the world with righteousness; *
he judges the peoples with equity.
9 The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, *
a refuge in time of trouble.
10 Those who know your Name will put their trust in you, *
for you never forsake those who seek you, O Lord.
11 Sing praise to the Lord who dwells in Zion; *
proclaim to the peoples the things he has done.
12 The Avenger of blood will remember them; *
he will not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13 Have pity on me, O Lord; *
see the misery I suffer from those who hate me,
O you who lift me up from the gate of death;
14 So that I may tell of all your praises
and rejoice in your salvation *
in the gates of the city of Zion.
15 The ungodly have fallen into the pit they dug, *
and in the snare they set is their own foot caught.
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice; *
the wicked are trapped in the works of their own hands.
17 The wicked shall be given over to the grave, *
and also all the people that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, *
and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19 Rise up, O Lord, let not the ungodly have the upper hand; *
let them be judged before you.
20 Put fear upon them, O Lord; *
let the ungodly know they are but mortal.

1 Sam.17:37
David said, 'The LORD who saved me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will save me from the hand of this Philistine.' Saul said to David, 'Go. May the LORD be with you.'

2 Cor. 6:2
Now is the acceptable time. Now is the day of salvation.

Mark 4:39-40
He woke up and rebuked the wind. He said to the sea, 'Peace! Be still! Then the wind ceased. There was a dead calm. He said to them, 'Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?'

Mars in Capricorn

Mars was the god of war and also an agricultural guardian in the Roman religion. This was a combination characteristic of early Rome. Egypt was highly valued for the bread that was produced near the Nile. An army doesn't function if the soldiers aren't fed. He was second in importance only to Jupiter and he was the most prominent of the military gods in the religion of the Roman army.

Capricorn is a mythical sea-goat. The constellation was a symbol of the god Ea. The story about the god was shared to mark the winter solstice in the Early Bronze Age. The constellation is sometimes identified as Amalthea in Greek mythology. She was the goat that suckled the infant Zeus after his mother, Rhea, saved him from being devoured by his father, Cronos.
Saturn in Saggitarius

Cronus was the son of Uranus and Gaea in Greek mythology. He lead his brothers and sisters, the Titans in a revolt against their father. He won and became the king of the gods.

He married the Titan Rhea. She represents wealth and abundance. They had a total of six children. Cronus was tormented about how he had acquired the throne. He had a bad habit of eating his newborn children to prevent them from one day overthrowing him as king of the gods. Finally, Rhea tricked him at the birth of her last child, Zeus. She got him to swallow a rock instead. Zeus then beat his father with the help of his brothers and sisters. The Romans adopted Cronus as the god Saturn.

Sagittarius is associated with the centaur, Chiron. He was renowned for his instruction. He was an excellent archer, musician and physician. He tutored the likes of Achilles, Jason and Hercules.
Chiron was accidentally shot and wounded by Hercules. The arrow had been dipped in the poison of the Lernaean Hydra. The poison inflicted great suffering on Chiron. The suffering was so great that even the talented physician could not cure himself.

Chiron offered himself as a substitute for Prometheus. He was an immortal in agony. He was unable to find release from suffering in death. The gods had punished Prometheus for giving fire to man by chaining him to a rock. Each day a vulture would devour his liver. Each night it would grow back.
Jupiter had at the request of Hercules agreed to release Prometheus if a suitable substitute could be found. Chiron gave up his immortality and went to Tartarus in place of Prometheus. Jupiter placed him in the stars in recognition of his goodness.

The Cronia

The Kronia was an Athenian festival held in honor of Cronus (Kronos) on the 12th day of Hekatombaion. This was the first month of the Attic calendar. It is roughly equivalent to the latter part of July and first part of August. The festival was also celebrated in parts of Ionia. The month was known as Kronion after the festival in these places.

The Roman playwright Accius says that to celebrate the Kronia, "In nearly all fields and towns they happily feast upon banquets, and everyone waits upon his own servants." Slaves and the free, rich and poor, all dined together. They played games such as dice (kyboi), knucklebones (astragaloi) and the board game pessoi. The freedom from work and social egalitarianism enjoyed on the day represented the conditions of the mythical Golden Age when Cronus still ruled the world.

Nether Stowey may have been a borough as early as 1157 or 1158 but by 1225 it is officially recorded as such. The economy of the medieval town was based on textiles and pottery, and it had both a weekly market and a yearly fair after 1304.

The great Railroad Strike instigated an organized action by railroad workers in Scranton in August 1877. The strike resulted in a multi-state action. It had started in WV, but workers in NY, MD, PA, IL and MO joined. This action attracted workers from the steel industry and mining as well.

Four rioters were killed during the strike after the mayor mustered a militia. Workers finally returned to their jobs. They were not able to gain the benefits that they demanded.

William Walker Scranton was from the most prominent family. He was then general manager of Lackawanna Iron and Coal. He founded Scranton Steel Company later.

The labor issues and growth of industry in Scranton contributed to Lackawanna County being established by the state legislature in 1878. Territory was taken from Luzerne County. Scranton was designated as the county seat. This strengthened its local government.

The area was occupied by the Hokan-speaking people of the Milling Stone Period by 3000 BCE.  They fished, hunted sea mammals and gathered wild seeds. They were later replaced by migrants fleeing drought in the Great Basin. These migrants spoke a Uto-Aztecan language called Tongva. The Tongva people called the Los Angeles region Yaa.

Kyoto was removed from the list of targets for the atom bomb at the insistence of Henry L. Stimson, Secretary of War in the Roosevelt and Truman administrations. The city was replaced by Nagasaki. The city was largely spared from conventional bombing as well, although small-scale air raids did result in casualties.

The Imperial City (Emeritus) of Kyoto is one of the few Japanese cities that still have an abundance of prewar buildings such as the traditional townhouses known as machiya. Modernization is breaking down the traditional Kyoto in favor of newer architecture such as the Kyōto Station complex.

Cha Cha Chance with the momentum of Muteki (Invincibility)
Cha Cha Chance in that spirit Tsuchiki (Faith)
I will say goodbye to AH every day before today
Cha Cha Chance! No matter how it changes
Chacha Chance! Keep watching unchanged
I will walk along the path ahead of glitter
with the power of the people of the sun!
The total accounting circle is nanana nana (777)!?
This is still the mode for the code
Two moons are months warm enough. Anything will matter.
Chacha Chance! Catch strength through the Kiseki (Cornerstone)
Cha Cha Chance! I will dramatically change AH every day from today

Zoe Saldana

Light for Sight
Hikari o sengen suru

What caused this trouble?
Did you not wish to burst your own bubble?

Why would you seek help from this place?
Did you really think that you would find a friendly face?

The loneliness of the uncertain hour rose before dawn
near the ending of interminable night as drawn
by the recurrent end of the unending  yawn
after the bat licked the hat you had just put on
and passed below your height as the horizon for his homing phenomenon.

The maiden resides on high with a copy of her article.
Her course is to assist being in the flesh to understand the particle.

The dust is alive in the dark with dreams of Republic. 
The heart of the family man is cast in the competition with the Muslim rustic.

Industry is recast on a shrinking globe.
Old timetables, maps and tracts are torn into shreds of 'nope.'
Hope for nope is the dope shot into tatters, burnt in a fire wind,
lost in the shambles, faded in the rubble with ashes spread over the entire width
of this chagrined din of sin.

Choice is found at the crossroad.
There is the ugliness of the lily and the beauty of the toad.

The butterfly perfumes the moon
with the flutter of the fragrant fume 
from the orchid plume. 

A bee staggers out 
drunk from the peony fount.
He drank more nectar than he could count.

The dragonfly
couldn't quite light 
on that wisp of sprite.

The earth and sun laughed 
over every wise harvest path 
looking toward peace as cast by wrath 
and the light of the sociopath.

We must dis-enthrall ourselves
from the mania of ringing bells.

The bridge says: Come across. See how good I am.
The big rock in the river says: Look at me to learn how to take a stand.

The white water says: I go on, around, under, over and beyond every tear.
A knarled and kneeling, scraggly pine says: I am here 
yet, fire nearly got me last year.

The power of the elegant tower says: Envision the sky as light.
The sun will expose the world when it explodes like artillery for sight.

A sliver of moon slides by on the high wind calling: I know why. 
I'll see you tomorrow. I'll tell you everything in time. 

Sing low. Sing high. Sing wide.
Make wit the shield behind which you hide.

Let your laughter ring true
like a brace of comfort beyond the blues.

There are three conditions which often look alike 
yet differ completely as they flourish like a tike on a trike.

There is attachment to self, things and people;
detachment from self, things and the cathedral;
and growing between them, the indifference of the sequel.
The last resembles the others as death resembles life unequaled.

The grief of pain made from the drive to stay alive
brought countless ills upon the people who grew to the grey side
of life.

Many a soul was sent down below where the shadows hide.
Many a hero was cast low so the vultures could fight
as gods to rip and tear away the inside. 

The counsel of determination was fulfilled from the day 
on which the attraction of strength and pain fell out along the way.

What was the cause that set them to quarrel? 
The determination to kill superseded the moral.

The resolution to act with strength dishonored the golden elder.
His daughter had been taken as a spoil by the slaughter seller.

The wisdom of age had brought jewels as a measure of radiant pleasure
to obtain release for his daughter as his treasure. 

He bore in his hand the staff of courage wreathed
for supplication from the people of the grey belief
and the sons of attraction's interaction as their chiefs.

He cried, "People attracted by life until grey graces your head,
I have no hair. My daughter tells me I'd be better off dead
but being bald isn't all that bad when all has been said.
May the divine grant you redemption before you find death. 
I hope that you find your way home to breathe the most grateful breath.
Please free my daughter and accept this treasure as a measure of breadth
in courage in life's long length to spend."

The resolution to act with strength to take plunder with the torch of destruction
rejected the offer made by the brave and wise elder for instruction from divine fluxion.
The rest was worked out in the field of battle for the compunction of unction.

The last crusade 
revealed the charade
as a parade.

Rome had not taken monotheism for the state.
The form had acquired the state as her slate.

Byzantium became the vehicle for Christ,
but toleration was dropped as something too nice.

Constantinople was the monotheistic city.
The imperial dynasty organized faction by committee.

War games made islam the goal for a new religion.
Icons incarnated art as the image for mission.

The Patriarch never sent troops for the Pope.
The Pope called for crusades in order to cope.

The chief priest had become the leader of empire in Europe.
The empire sought Jerusalem as the vintage for the Grail's cup.

Crusade after crusade sought to capture or keep
the city for peace that still raised sheep.

Edward the First was the last of the crusaders.
Baybars of the Malmuks sought to repel them as invaders.
The Christians organized for battle to defend the city of Acre.
Jerusalem had fallen to the Muslim as the taker.
 Acre was the last Christian lawmaker.

Edward appealed to Kublai Khan as an ally.
The Horde attacked Aleppo in the northern climb.
The Kipchaks turned the tide for the Malmuk side.
Edward was poisoned by a Muslim assassin's try.
That was the end of his crusader pride.

He was told of his father's death when he arrived in Sicily.
This was within three decades from the end of the 13th century.
He traveled overland to visit Pope Gregory the tenth to affirm his pedigree.
He was crowned king when he returned to Westminster. It was elementary.
The Royal minority saw majority authority 
as the means to tax national pejority.

Talk about directives prompted legislative electives.
The reform of law was made by the statutes that were selected.
Edward was brutal to the Welsh and the Scots in his rule.
He built castles in Wales instead of schools.
He was defeated by Philip IV of France, no Flanders fool.
He expelled the Jews. The edict was his tool.

He taxed in excess to pay for war. 
He was called the Hammer when he demanded more.
He died outside of Scotland in a last effort to increase his store.

Parliament precipitates war for taxation.
They say it's for your relaxation. 

How easily public opinion is bent
against the increase in the amount lawmakers spent.

Count this remembrance like money.
The Greeks proclaimed profit from war as though it were human honey.
The Romans wore glad rags to declare that this kind of rain looked sunny.
The Carolingians wrote script in miniscule until their noses were runny.

They stuck their thumbs to their noses  thrust in the air.
They declared that life isn't fair. So why should they care?

Life was lived as a symphonic dream of fresh eggs broken over a frying pan 
left by an uncle who killed men with spears, short swords and rustic tans.

The golden age was not technologically advanced.
Justice assembled the elders in the village to evaluate the role of chance.

She urged them to judgments kinder to the people.
Judgment had to be watched to guard against evil.

The knowledge of hateful strife, contentious contention or the din of battle was not known.
Life was lived simply. Action to feed need was the function that was shown.

The cruel sea was far from them.
Goods were not shipped to mend the hem.

The oxen, the plow, the sheep and justice supplied every need.
The earth nurtured the golden age as the goal for planting seed.
It was geometry that called sailors to sail the seas.
The size of shape maintained proportion with respect for what was seen.

The tropics were parallel belts that girded the equator.
Lines beneath the sun were treasured as the measure for the estimator.

Navigation was the  art of estimation with respect for forms.
Lines that were thought to be infinite were curved around the global norm.

The belts were at right angles to the axis which they turned around,
but it looked to them like the sun made the journey over sight and sound.

Drift like a mist you white sailed ships.
Sail by the free blue sky as your will without whips.

I remember in the blood of my dreams how they sang before me on the sea.
Slaves weren't paid to work, so they would sing about the dream to be free.

The verbose governess brought out the leather strap
to whack her hand, but that was just that.
There was no other whack from the strap
to the butt or the back.

Press forward white threaded seams.
Let me have the strength of my dreams.

The prow of the bow cuts through the space across the water.
It bends the wind around the ship as playful as an otter.

She is the genius of the sea for me.
She sings to shape the space to be.

The past sank beneath the massive clouds.
Silver and green spread over the liquid plain like a shroud.

The crescent moon was almost dead beyond the mast head.
Her mind would never speak to me again.

I was sorry that I had made her the queen of my heart.
I had to leave her behind to make a fresh start.

The snake has shed its skin upon the ground.
The waning moon did not eclipse the sound.

The craft slapped her sadness as she slid through the darkness.
The wistful water was cloven by sullen swells of liquid hardness.

My mind soared free high above the mast.
I directed sight to where the stars were cast.

The Trusty Shellbacks had organized their Court for the mighty dim of Neptune.
The Slimy Pollywogs were inducted into the mysterious Deep in June.

Physical hardship for the ship's keep was kept.
When the Pollywogs crossed the equator line for the first time, no one slept.

If we were beside ourselves, it was for lawfulness.
Whenever we were in our right mind, it was to draw such as blessed.

We would shout for joy in victory.
Knowledge was the toy to unveil mystery.

Victory was given to the anointed.
Achievement was earned by being learned as appointed.

The mystic ship carried me past the trash of the violent past
towards the promise of a stability that would last as cast.

The high mast rocked steady when docked near the shore.
The snake had shed its skin and left it on the floor.

The ascent of the new day in the dawn
yielded writing as the way to express your say of how you saw.

Uprightness maintains the power of authority.
Authority is made right by the direction for priority.

Sing a song full of faith 
that surpasses what that dark past made.

Sing a song full of hope 
for the present scope.

Sing a song full of love
for the future shown in heaven above.

Let love face the rising sun.
Our new day has begun.

May salvation meet you in the day of trouble.
Let protection lead you beyond your shadow's double.

20 Exaudiat te Dominus

1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble, *
the Name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 Send you help from his holy place *
and strengthen you out of Zion;
3 Remember all your offerings *
and accept your burnt sacrifice;
4 Grant you your heart's desire *
and prosper all your plans.
5 We will shout for joy at your victory
and triumph in the Name of our God; *
may the Lord grant all your requests.
6 Now I know that the Lord gives victory to his anointed; *
he will answer him out of his holy heaven,
with the victorious strength of his right hand.
7 Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses, *
but we will call upon the Name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall down, *
but we will arise and stand upright.
9 O Lord, give victory to the king *
and answer us when we call.

1 Samuel 15:35
Samuel did not see Saul again until the day of his death, but Samuel grieved over Saul. The Lord was sorry that he had made Saul king over Israel.

2 Corinth. 5: 13
If we are beside ourselves it is for God. When we are in our right mind it is for you.

Mark 4:28-29
The earth produces of itself. First the sprout, the stem, the head, then the full grain in the head. When the grain is ripe the reaper goes in with his sickle to harvest the grain.’

Beehive Cluster
96] Beneath both feet of Boötes mark the Maiden [Virgo], who in her hands bears the gleaming Ear of Corn [Spica]. Whether she be daughter of Astraeus, who, men say, was of old the father of the stars, or child of other sire, untroubled be her course! But another tale is current among men, how of old she dwelt on earth and met men face to face, nor ever disdained in olden time the tribes of men and women, but mingling with them took her seat, immortal though she was. Her men called Justice; but she assembling the elders, it might be in the market-place or in the wide-wayed streets, uttered her voice, ever urging on them judgements kinder to the people. Not yet in that age had men knowledge of hateful strife, or carping contention, or din of battle, but a simple life they lived. Far from them was the cruel sea and not yet from afar did ships bring their livelihood, but the oxen and the plough and Justice herself, queen of the peoples, giver of things just, abundantly supplied their every need. Even so long as the earth still nurtured the Golden Race, she had her dwelling on earth.

EI "We shall then defeat the whole lot of them in one go."

Edward I is credited with restoring royal authority after the reign of Henry III, establishing Parliament as a permanent institution and a functional system for raising taxes and reforming the law through statutes.

He is criticized for his brutal conduct towards the Scots and issuing the Edict of Expulsion in 1290. The Jews were expelled from England by this mandate. The Edict remained in effect for the rest of the Middle Ages. It was over 350 years until it was formally overturned under Oliver Cromwell in 1657.

The City of Westminster developed into the true capital in governmental terms. Neighboring London remained England's largest city and principal commercial center. It flourished under its own unique administration, the Corporation of London. The population was around 18,000 in 1100. It had grown to nearly 100,000 by 1300.

Jacksonville and nearby St. Augustine became popular winter resorts for the rich and famous during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age. Visitors arrived by steamboat and later by railroad. President Grover Cleveland attended the Sub-Tropical Exposition in the city on February 22, 1888 during his trip to Florida. This highlighted the visibility of the state as a worthy place for tourism. The city's tourism, however, was dealt major blows in the late 19th century by yellow fever outbreaks.

The decades between 1920 and 1970 were characterized by industrial decline in Harrisburg. There was a population shift from the city to the suburbs.It shifted to a service-orientation like most other cities which faced a loss of their industrial base. Industries such as health care and convention centers played a big role. The city's shrinking population became the greatest problem after 1950. This loss in population followed a national trend and was a delayed result of the decline of Harrisburg's steel industry.

C.H. Sessions had acquired the title for about 400 acres. He established a dairy and creamery in 1902. His wife’s maiden name was Miss Lynne Wood. They agreed to call the place “the Lynwood Dairy and Creamery.” The business was located at what is now Sanborn and Long Beach Blvd.

The Southern Pacific Railway had a siding there later. They called it the ‘ Lynwood siding’. Henry Huntington organized another company called the Pacific Electric Railroad in 1902. The line that ran from Los Angeles to Santa Ana was finished in 1905. It passed directly through the middle of Lynwood.

Pacific Electric installed a depot on the corner of Long Beach Blvd. and Fernwood Avenue in 1929. The building still exists. There are plans are to make it into a historic monument. The PE Railway took up the Lynwood name from the dairy and creamery.

West Jerusalem served as Israel's capital from 1949 to 1967. The capital was not recognized as such internationally because UN General Assembly Resolution 194 envisaged Jerusalem as an international city. The whole of Jerusalem came under Israeli control as a result of the Six-Day War in 1967. The government of Levi Eshkol extended Israeli law and jurisdiction to East Jerusalem on 27 June 1967, but agreed that administration of the Temple Mount compound would be maintained under the Jordanian Ministry of Religious Endowments.

Passaic has been called "The Birthplace of Television." Experimental television station W2XCD began transmitting from DeForest Radio Corporation in Passaic in 1931. It was the first television station to transmit to the home. It was the first such station to broadcast a feature film. Allen B. DuMont, formerly DeForest's chief engineer, opened pioneering TV manufacturer DuMont Laboratories in Passaic in 1937 to start the DuMont Television Network. This became the world's first commercial television network in 1946.

Tokyo was completely rebuilt after the war. The city was showcased to the world during the 1964 Summer Olympics. The 1970's brought new high-rise developments such as Sunshine 60, a new and controversial airport at Narita in 1978 some distance outside city limits. There was a population increase to about 11 million in the metropolitan area.

Tokyo's subway and commuter rail network became one of the busiest in the world as more and more people moved to the area.  Tokyo still sees new urban developments on large lots of less profitable land. Recent projects include Ebisu Garden Place, Tennozu Isle, Shiodome, Roppongi Hills, Shinagawa (now also a Shinkansen station) and the Marunouchi side of Tokyo Station.
