I Spy

I Spy with my little eye

Cell Phone footage depicting a young man die

Video of a people yelling WorldStar!! Instead of Why?

 

I Spy with my little eye

Tiny Cameras making violence a spectacle to see

With cheap data plans it’s damn near for free

 

I spy with my little eye

A society in need of rebooting

Especially after the addition of 9 more angels after a church shooting

 

I spy with my little eye

A world desensitized to acts of vulgarity and malice

A world where to many focus on achieving suction on their phallus

 

I spy with my little eye

A world where the youth are stolen and slain

A sick act that leaves families forever in pain

 

I spy with my little eye

A world ripe with sin

Sin that transcends the limits of the color of skin

 

I spy with my little eye

Tiny Cameras that capture the distrust of law enforcement

Showcasing the individuals of police brutality endorsement

 

I spy with my little eye

Fear and uncertainty in the worlds little eyes

All asking is this the day one of my friends dies?

 

I spy with my little eye

A world sick and deranged

And I ask you cell phone camera, is it too late for us to change?

Things Vet Techs Don’t Like Vol 10

The clenched fist says it all right. It’s a sign of pure rage in this case. This job is going to forever make me say “Why do we allow humans to procreate?”

Well since we can’t stop that I can still rant right? You all won’t hold that against me? Don’t think you will so here goes for the tenth time in a row, Things Vet Techs Don’t Like!!!!!!

1. MAGGOTS!!!!!!

You see that picture above… It’s a fly. A creepy, disgusting, and annoying little housefly. It lives it’s life in relatively short stages. They start as disgusting little eggs that hatch into a larval stage known commonly as Maggots. Now being a veterinary technician you see all sorts of gross things. soy one becomes conditioned, hardened if you will. But very few vet techs clock in and are ready to see maggots spewing from an abnormal orifice on someone’s pet. Seriously WHAT THE F**K?….. okay got that out. Now let me clarify my rage. if it’s a stray animal that was wounded and then maggots set up shop and some good Samaritan brings it in to have it treated or put to sleep then fine we’ll deal with the grossness with nose plugs and gloves. But the flip side to that is that select group of people who bring in their pet who have maggots falling out of them stating “this just happened today” . If you are a pet owner who cares for their pet then why the hell didn’t you notice a wound on your pet that now is festering and has tons of maggots burrowing through it and eating your pet alive? Not only is this disgusting it’s so rag inducing that it makes me tremble with anger….

Disclaimer: I know that sometimes some pets get out, or run away and accidents happen, and one may not find their pet before something like this happens. This is not a rant towards those who have gone through those unfortunate mishaps.

Nuff’ said.

3. LIQUOR

In this job, especially the emergency portion of it we seem to encounter our fair share of liquor. Now don’t get me wrong plenty of vet techs can agree that a nice cold one after a long day’s work is a great thing, but while you’re clocked in you don’t want to smell or see liquor or it’s remnants. If you come into the clinic somewhat buzzed or full on plastered it’s not a good thing. History gets skewed, and facts will be disoriented, and you’re overly emotional in a time when you need to be calm. Sometimes its down right embarrassing to see an adult acting like an idiot in public or doing idiotic things.  The other side of the liquor spectrum is if you bring in a pet that is suffering from alcohol poisoning I personally think of you as the scum of the Earth. Not only is it asinine, it’s animal abuse which is punishable by law lest we forget. So if you are coming into my clinic giggling about your dog being drunk while this poor animal, a member of your family, is now suffering and may die, don’t expect me to be all bright and cheery with you in the exam room. Quite frankly, to Hell with your feelings, your animal suffering is all i’m concerned about, and if we can prevent any major or long lasting issues then I hope the law is called and you are punished for it…. Jerk-off

Well… there you have it folks that’s volume 10 of Things Vet Techs Don’t Like. That’s my 2 cents on this madness called Veterinary Medicine. Pass it along.

Nocturnal visions, or dreams are some of the most powerful forms of imagery on this earth. Being a writer, I draw a lot of inspiration from my dreams. But sometimes dreams are so powerful they are confusing or immensely frightening that wake us in a cold sweat. Now I say frightening but I dont mean a nightmare. I mean a series of images that are truly a fear inducing dream. I see a nightmare as a blast of one fearful event to another, but a frightening dream sucks you into this world of false security then you’re dragged through a fear so damn real that you can’t function. One is left immobile as it slowly releases its grip on your mind

, and you are wiping sweat and trying to figure out what you just witnessed.

I’m a member of the Christian faith so dreams of certain images are very moving. Dreaming of seeing the saviour, Jesus Christ,  is one that often brings people to tears. But dreams of the Christianity end times event, the Apocalypse, is what brings you to wake in terror. Some have been moved to start cult and spread mass fear and paranoia because of their dreams.

I won’t be doing that but I did have a dream of the end. The sky burned a deep crimson then was blacked in a thick cloud cover. Beings of pure light and beauty walked amongst us, angels, and they started taking people to heaven. Others engaged in warfare with demons that frothed out of cracks in the earth. War lasted years, and all the while the hands of the lord would part the clouds and smite the demons that were too powerful for the angels, or to gather more wayward souls and take them to heaven. This dream seemed to last forever and I can’t even begin to describe how terrifying those demons were. I was wrapped up in a battle with angels at my back and demons bearing down on me until the hand of creation ushered me from the battlefield and into the clouds. It ended well, but being in that battle and seeing what I did was the scariest thing I’ve ever witnessed. I’m still trying to process what I just dreamt and what it could mean truly.

Have you ever had a frightful dream that just rips your psyche a new one then releases you to think about it all day? Let me know

Thats my 2 cents on the matter

I need power

All my life I pray for his power

To call on I’m in need this hour
So I can fix your ignorance this hour
I live
I laugh
I love with you, lessons in every heartbeat/
Only to die from your display of cold heat/
The irony of your strong weakness/
The prognosis of my admiration is full of bleakness/
You are supposed to accept
But you’re acting inept
You give unconditional love
But lately it’s conditional  adversity in a spiked boxing glove/
All my life I pray for his power
To call on I’m in need this hour
So I can fix your ignorance this hour
You constantly beat my heart into the ground/
Until she sits on and island without a sound/
Where’s the love?
Is it above?
Yeah, on an angel’s breast
But right now
 your of a devil’s loin
Steadily flipping more than a coin
Damn she can’t feel the it
The love, passion, bonding, nope not shit/
Really?
You flip the script from the page I had it on for 23yrs?/
Really?
Now you kick off the training wheels and switch gears/
Really?
Did you ever think I’d be trying to defend you in tears?
No, but now that my heart tears, tears into pieces for you/
I love you but all I can say is
All my life I pray for his power
To call on when I’m in need this hour
So I can fix your ignorance this hour
