The Sailboat & The Lighthouse by Ryan Fu (Happy Father’s Day)

Just give it up bro.

Fighting off 

your second heart attack 

making the doctors 

&

nurses

jumpstart you 

like you were an old Mercedes

with a fading car battery. 

I wanted you to stop, 

end your suffering 

&

move on 

to your next adventure. 

But it wasn’t in you to quit. 

It wasn’t in your nature 

to give up. 

Growing up I‘ve never seen you 

take a days off 

always being a steady workhorse. 

You were a fighter all the way 

to the end. 

You fought in hundreds of battles

fighting off your demons. 

But we couldn’t see you 

suffer anymore. 

We had to throw in the towel. 

You wouldn’t go down

for your own good

because you wanted to die 

on your shield. 

You were a warrior,

a teacher,

a leader,

a husband.

You were my father.

But you look foreign to me

laying in your death-bed

looking weak 

frail,

a shell of your former 

strong lively self.

You just lay there waiting 

for the boatman to ferry you across 

to the next world

staring past your family 

at the foot of your bed 

looking at that whack ass art print

in your room of a tiny sailboat 

heading towards a lighthouse.

The meaning was simple 

but I wonder if it was meant to be there

making your transition easier. 

In any case, 

this was your last voyage,

saying our goodbyes.

We will all miss you.

O Captain! My Captain!

Take to the rough seas 

one last time

&

head towards the light

onto your next adventure.

A truth about debt

Hippy Tat

I wasn’t going to post this blog for a while, it just feels too personal and it is not a comfortable subject but after seeing an article on the BBC News website today I decided to take the risk and post it.

When I was 22 I lived in London for a year. I had barely enough to eat anything other than pasta and no money at all for heating. Often we wouldn’t be able to afford electricity so we would make up games and play them by candlelight. In many ways it was a creative time but it definitely wasn’t easy.

On one occasion my mum had bought me a coach ticket to go home for the weekend. I had no money on my Oyster Card and literally no money in the bank. I had to walk from my job in Mayfair to Victoria Coach Station in order to get…

Kathy Griffin Fired By CNN For Picture With Trump’s Head – Did she deserve to be fired, your thoughts?

1

Trend Republic

CNN has fired comedian Kathy Griffin from its annual New Year’s Eve broadcast.

Griffin drew strong criticism for posing in photographs holding up the likeness of a severed head resembling U.S. President Donald Trump.Image result for kathy griffin donald trump

Griffin, 56, a two-time Emmy-winning performer known for her deliberately provocative brand of humor, has appeared since 2007 as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast from Times Square in New York with anchor Anderson Cooper.

The network announced the termination on Wednesday after earlier criticising the photos as “disgusting and offensive.”

Griffin posted a videotaped apology on Tuesday night amid a public outcry from Republicans and Democrats alike over the images, including condemnation from Trump.

“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself,” Trump wrote. “My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”

The U.S. Secret Service, responsible for presidential security, has opened an inquiry into the posting of…

Hope is a the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson

b91fbd24df0fa6abc812f6f34e3fde70

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul, 

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all.

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chilliest land

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked a crumb of me.

Unicorn Frappuccino – Will you try it?

7

The Foods Around Me

Probably the worst tasting Starbucks drink ever to be created. Literally tastes like a unicorn went to chipotle and shit in a cup.

Unicorn Frappucino:

An instant star of social media platforms, it’s literally on all of them check. Starbucks released this limited time drink in all stores this week. Being completely different than all other drink releases the description on the drink is absolutely terrible.

The Starbucks description reads:

“The flavor-changing, color-changing, totally-not-made-up Unicorn Frappuccino. Magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour. Swirl it to reveal a color-changing spectacle of purple and pink. It’s finished with whipped cream sprinkled pink and blue fairy powders.”

How it should be described:

This drink misses its mark on all levels. The sweetness completely overpowers the flavors of the drink. Its sourness is a blue raspberry that takes away from the mango syrup. The consistency doesn’t help the uniqueness in flavor. It has a…
