Forget me Not – Mark Twain (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910)

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called “the Great American Novel“.

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County“, was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, and was even translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

Though Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he invested in ventures that lost a great deal of money, notably the Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter, which failed because of its complexity and imprecision. In the wake of these financial setbacks, he filed for protection from his creditors via bankruptcy, and with the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain chose to pay all his pre-bankruptcy creditors in full, though he had no legal responsibility to do so.

Poetry Mondays – Meta Me by Ryan Fu

When did the online

version of me

become better than

the real me.

There’s something wrong

with the world 

when people want to hang out 

via Skype.

Where we spend half our lives

looking at nugget porn

&

grumpy cats

watching untalented people

making a fool of themselves

to extend their 15 mins of whoring.

Don’t I have enough pixels,

aren’t I better than HD quality? 

Didn’t I receive enough 

likes on my page?

How many followers do you need

to be consider someone to like? 

Fuck your LEFT

&

RIGHT swipe

The Oracle was right 

we’re all trapped 

in cyber purgatory 

permanently signed on

for whole world to judge

as our footsteps gets traced,

documented

&

collected

without us even knowing

or

consenting to it.

Building a case

that the real you

    sucks

    &

      the virtual you 

is much better

because they can

     control you.

Sooner

or

later 

the real me

will disappear 

into Matrix

leaving behind 

my digital footprint

&

my Google searches

for Carrot Top.

The Losers by Ryan Fu

The Losers

Get a real job!

Parasites

D-bags

leave them alone

you assholes!

You guys are scumbags. 

I don’t know how many times

I hear it in a day

before I start to believe

it’s my name.

 But I get it

this is nation of winners

we love our false heroes. 

We put our idols high in the sky

until they fall

then we all become Chicken Little. 

We discard those

who don’t meet our expectations

then turn our backs on them

like they were bastard children.

History gets written

by the victors

as the losers

fade away in the narrative.

The forgotten ones

still on the battlefield

condemned forever 

 to remember their failures.

Why is there even

a second place?

It’s first

or

nothing

because we all want to be loved.

What’s love gotta do with it by The Truth (BLW Contributor)

Love has to do with everything….

The way the flowers bloom and the trees move

To the sun in the sky to the moon at night

Love has to do with everything

That’s why the bluebird sing and the lions stick together.

And the soft breeze to the wavy waters.

Love even sings….

What’s love got to do with it???

Must I say, I will,

Everything….

The reason why you smile and the reason you cry

Rather good or bad love is always around.

Love has to do with everything…

Whether you are happy or sad, love is around

To keep you up and going afloat.

Loving yourself first allows you to know love and receive it….

Love has to do with everything

The reason you breathe and the reason you stop.

What is love, its going to automatically grow.

We know no other word opposite of love…

For love, is taking over and all it do is grow, grow and grow….

What’s love got to do with it????

Everything…

:-)

It’s love every time I look around
