Doctor Death . . .
After eight years, Dr. Jack Kevorkian is released from prison.
I’m not sure how I feel, for I know there are two sides to everything. Assisted suicide, suicide, terminal illness, so many questions and I am not the one to judge.
They say he still believes people have the right to die.
What’s wrong with the media? Everyone one has the right to their own opinions. He served his time for his and being there when 130 people took their own lives.
For those that would throw the first stone, remember live by the sword die by the sword . . .
Brian Turner’s Book . . . Here, Bullet
Surfing today I found some great poetry . . . I haven’t bought Brian Turner’s Book yet, but I will. His poetry is so crisp and clear. He writes of Iraq through the eyes of a soldier with words only a soldier has earned the right to use.
Camel caravans transport the dead
from Persia and beyond, their bodies dried
and wrapped in carpets, their dying wishes
to be buried near Ali,
where the first camel
dragged Ali’s body across the desert
tied to the fate of its exhaustion.
Najaf is where the dead naturally go,
where the gates of Paradise open before them
in unbanded light, the blood washed clean
from their bodies.
It is November,
the clouds made of gunpowder and rain,
the earth pregnant with the dead;
cemetery mounds stretching row by row
with room enough yet for what the years
will bring: the gravediggers need only dig,
shovel by shovel.
Brian Turner . . . from his book, Here, Bullet.
