Piece Of Cheese

By Gabriele Fellows

 

Little mouse
Crawling on the floor
Amongst the crumbs
Endlessly searching for a scrap
Of the truth
Stuck inside a booth
Projecting an agenda from the elite
To the masses
Stuck on their asses
Staring into screens
Searching for the truth
A bit of reality
An escape from responsibility
The power to instigate change
In the hands of those
Wishing to sell
The smell of greed
Permeates the premises

Time to Merge
converge at the seams
Bumping into the back of Babylon
Neurosis bubbling over the brim
Time to give in and stay
Between the lines
Adhere to time
Clean cut & firmly pressed
Time to confess your sins
Give in to material wealth
The exterior superior self
Underneath mainstream consciousness
The elite shiver with confusion
Their power merely an illusion
granted by documents and doctrine
Conflict of Interest
Hot under the collar
Wanting to hollar
Set the record straight
How can someone relate
to the minons in our government
Malnourished, impoverished youth
Stuck inside a booth
Ingesting flickering images of a culture
Obsessed with perfection
Mere introspection
Capturing the event from different angles
The direction of intent
Disregarding the laws
Creating an alternative existance
A time clock drenched in creative thought
Punching in and out after every thought
Flowing freely without restrictions
Unneccessary obligations
Attempting to define and confine ourselves
Turning the spiritial into the material
One day at a time

Pure compassion for the underprivillaged class
Judging and restricting us
Profiting from the confinement of our minds and bodies
Redistricting and allocating the resources Mother Earth provided us
The matrix of dominant thought forcing all to comply
Give in to their lies
The truth swept underneath the rug
Kept hidden and out of sight
Express flight into pure exstacy and bliss
Kiss full of inspiration
Insight into the life we all lead
Led by greed
Find your slot
Your spot in the economy of
Mainstream thought but
Don’t be bought.

CG Or Else

By Gabriele Fellows
Humboldt Sentinel

 

The world is a stage
Page your true intentions
Discard the past
Take off the mask
Of inferiority
Mass conformity
Relinquish your goals
To the corporation
Melt your dreams
Into their machine
Nice and clean
Swift and tidy
High and mighty
Ride that horse
Into the sunset
Mindset
Turn the page
To the next chapter
Don’t mind the chatter
Pay attention to the heartbeat of dissent
spent and sent underground
by the second
open up and achieve bliss

Redwood Peace Poetry Contest Announced

Cash prizes, publication offered to local high school students

Staff Report
Humboldt Sentinel

 

The cause of world peace is coming to the high schools of Humboldt County in the new year.

The Redwood Coast Peace Poetry Contest focuses the minds of local students on the abolition of war, hate and violence in favor of peacemaking in our communities. To this end, the Humboldt Bay Chapter of Veterans for Peace is teaming up with the Humboldt Chapter of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and the Social Action Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Bayside to put on their third annual competition.

“Participants in similar events across the nation have helped to establish a ‘culture of peace’ in their communities,” VFP Veterans Education and Outreach Project co-chair Jon Reisdorf stated in a release. “We also expect this contest to become a valuable resource for educators interested in the intersection of peace studies and the creative arts.”

While all authors who meet the contest guidelines will be honored in a public ceremony at the end of the school year, a panel of independent judges will select several poems for cash prizes of up to $200. All work is to be completely original and unpublished, and each author will be invited to read his or her poem to the assembly; they’ll also receive a copy of the 2012 Redwood Coast Peace Poetry Anthology. Additional copies of the anthology will be donated to school and other public libraries, and will be made available for purchase.

The deadline for poetry entries is Mar. 5, 2012 at 5 p.m. Contest organizers urge students to contact their English, Drama or Language Arts teachers for more information; members of the public can also visit vfp56.org, or can contact Reisdorf at (707) 822-4595 and jonreisdorf@hotmail.com, or VFP member Carl Stancil at (707) 616-6405 and carlstancil@gmail.com.

Blank

By Gabriele Fellows

 

Non-pharmaceduical diet
Should have tried It
Hurting  the general population with understimulation 
Chemical dependency
Pure and simple atrophy
Stuck at the bottom
Wanting to rise to the top
skim the cream
inside the machine
starving for perfection
copyright protection
Allowing others to utilize
Capitalize off the talent of others
Disabilities turned into mass conspiracies
The elite poisoning the water with lies
Seperating us all into classes
Keeping us socially restrained
Always in line and in check
Respect all authority
Global priorities
Creating cookie cutter people
To mass deliver
Identical copies
One for all
All for one
catch them fast before they run
Those free flowing thoughts
Out on the hunt
A new medium
mass conscious thought
plugging us all in
teaching us to consume
Mass conformity
Social security
torn to shreds
a consitituion turned into 1′s and 0′s
all over the globe
sit and told
what to think, what to feel
how can this all be real
an artificial reality
bought and sold in the discount aisle
Forgetting what is real
what is green and grounded in the earth
told since birth to buy
into a system based upon wealth
for one and not for all
stand straight and tall
deliver the message

Bipolar Opposites

By Gabriele Fellows
 

Stitched together
Torn apart
Shatter the protective barrier
of your heart
Indoctrinated
Saturated slimy souls
Fed lies from the craddle to the grave
Isn’t it brave
to be a superpower
Dominating all the hemispheres
beaming down an agenda 
to enslave a population of minds
encourage them to believe
America’s the best
lies candy coated by the elite
cleaning in between their teeth
with toothpicks created by the poor
picking up trash from the floor
keeping it real
how do you feel
indirectly helping the banker’s agenda

Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?

By Gabriele Fellows

 

Find the time
a mere inconvience
previous experience
working together all as one
towards the same goals
truth be told
how old is your soul
the threads of time dissolve and unravel
Traveling on the super highway of
mainstream thought
Allowing your consciousness to be bought
Sold by the second
Drive the ball into the hole
Achieve all your goals
Turn time into talent
create a new balance
counter act your fakeness
Prim and proper
Why even bother
Spending energy on perfection
a mere reflection of a culture
Starting at itself in the mirror
Caught up in the trivialities of life
human strife
stuck at the bottom
trying to climb their way to the top
Having the elite 
kicking their feet
in the faces of the poor
locking the door
dominating the airwaves
promoting the messages of the government
one sided stories spliced between coke commercials
dollar signs in their eyes
high as the sky
shut up, tune in and drop out
scream and shout
into a pilllow underneath your floor
bored of being a slave
time to cave
ignorance is bliss

    The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views.
