The Lighter Side of JzB

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Tree Word Wednesady #415

Today's Words:


In my view, all of human history displays two overarching themes:
1) warfare,
2) the desire of a small privileged elite group of leeches to dominate the rest of the population.

These both result from greed.  To the greedy, no amount is ever enough.  Whatever you have, they want, and they are coming to get it.

sober assessment
when will we evolve enough
to be content


  1. yes there's always some kind of discontent isn't there?

  2. Yes it does seem unlikely..but if the thought is there amongst enough people..just maybe...thoughtful write

  3. Love your intro to this haiku. Partly agree, but again there are exist another part of people who feel they don't deserve much...either extreme - abnormal. Moderation - the key...

  4. Fair question. You wont like the answer.


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
