The Cold Within

Six humans trapped by happenstance
In bleak and bitter cold.
Each one possessed a stick of wood
Or so the story’s told.

Their dying fire in need of logs
The first man held his back
For of the faces round the fire
He noticed one was black.

The next man looking ‘cross the way
Saw one not of his church
And couldn’t bring himself to give
The fire his stick of birch.

The third one sat in tattered clothes.
He gave his coat a hitch.
Why should his log be put to use
To warm the idle rich?

The rich man just sat back and thought
Of the wealth he had in store
And how to keep what he had earned
From the lazy shiftless poor.

The black man’s face bespoke revenge
As the fire passed from his sight.
For all he saw in his stick of wood
Was a chance to spite the white.

The last man of this forlorn group
Did nought except for gain.
Giving only to those who gave
Was how he played the game.

Their logs held tight in death’s still hands
Was proof of human sin.
They didn’t die from the cold without
They died from the cold within.

Timothy Kinney

A quote I ran into sitting a gallery row one day……

It makes me smile when people are complete assholes for no reason at all. They have no idea how much their bullshit fuels people like me.

Author ~Christopher Poindexter~

When others get mad at me for reacting to their bullshit then claim I am the messed up one, the one that is an asshole, a bitch, etc. makes me laugh. Spread your crap, your bullshit. I like fate. I don’t even have to respond, act, or anything because one day, others will see you for who you really are, the way I see you.
