Poets for Kerry Returns

It has been noted recently that Senator John Kerry has undergone a kind of personal renaissance that has led him back to the unafraid passion that he was well known for back in the 1960s. If that is so, it is appropriate that the Poets for Kerry web site is now back in operation, preparing the way for the return of John Kerry as a presidential candidate in 2008.

The return of Poets for Kerry came at the request of Robert Freedland, who operates the John Kerry for President 2008 blog, in the form, appropriately, of a poem. The creator of Poets for Kerry responded to that poem in kind on Friday. Robert Freedland’s poem, and the response, are seen below:

From Robert Freedland to Poets for Kerry:
—————————————————–

Ten weeks gone by
With no poems seen.
No rhymes.
No lines.
No comments heard.

America needs your wit
Your style
Your care
Write once more for Kerry
We await your return.

Like knights on a quest
We strive to make right
We challenge
We fight
We revel and shout.

We are here for a Senator,
Once bowed in defeat
Who stands tall
And defiant
And speaks truth and wise words.

So set your pens down once again
Let the words come forth once more
John Kerry awaits
And the battle is nigh
2008 is soon here
Bring forth your verse.

To Robert Freedland from Poets for Kerry:
—————————————————–

In days before this world was remade
they told of kings corrupted
by rusted blades
falling toward the water’s edge
into carriages from Avalon,
light as goose down,
soaking up every drop of blood,
pulled them under great mountains
to lie on beds of stone
until such time as they were needed again
for the old country.
Underneath the marble facades
of temples vainly appearing to be Greek,
a crack in the Earth opened today,
and a voice emerged
speaking of restoration.

    I had a pet duck when I was three.
    My best buddy. i cruised on my trycylce
    with hammer in hand with my buddy trail-
    ing behind or in front. We were looking
    for walnuts. day in and day out.

    Anyway talking about leaders: All the
    signs say: Since the cold war is over;
    when will all the world leaders take
    thier thumbs out of their asses and
    stop dancing the hokey pokey. like whoa
    was that a close one and let’s dance.

    Yep. things got bad again. You not know
    how bad. reader. you see the message from
    the top is this: Listen hear world, world
    of tears. Earth. You got to be the world
    of laughter. Your laughter have to reach
    the very heavens. and reader guess what?
    Our leaders know how to do it but. thumb
    in butt not removed. And here is the
    real message from above. When the leaders
    meet the maker. They won’t visit no hokey
    pokey. the very heavens and stars must hear
    our joy. At the moment mars, for example
    is embarrased to know us. No good reports
    coming out of here.

  • Matt fur got to

    Whoa.
    Belay part of that last message:
    Mr. Bush. You keep doing that
    one handed Hokey-pokey. (we only
    want to see one hand on the table
    at all times. wait a minute.)

    But do note. how you make this
    “World of Tears” into a world
    of laughter and joy. The answer
    they know. you see though it
    includes the happyness and joy
    of all beings on this earth.

    Out. and the Iranian leader..
    you got to be kidding.

  • Calling inSink

    There is someone out there that
    hit the president and company
    like with a sink. No. /yes.

    I mean does that writer out there
    know the “newborn-one” as prophesized.
    It sounds like he might be the sink
    himself.
    (and it is the kitchen sink that
    everybody has to bow down to like
    he is jesus –if you want to get
    funny and knowledgeable. .
    ((you had to have been there..reader.
    but everybody
    and “the kitchen sink “is coming
    for the big possible finale here
    on earth –so said, not just by
    him. By the biggest of think tanks.
    and it is the kitchen sink
    who..might be the new born one.but
    there is good reason for it. It
    sounds sacrilougous but perfect
    having our leaders worring MOST
    about the sink coming to get them.
    remember some almighty one has
    them doing the one handed hokey
    pokey. “I don’t want to see that
    trigger hand let alone finger…
    seeing the shade of day. And he
    has them dancing around)

    Truly the guy who wrote that–whoever
    he is and no disrespect must have
    been in a crazy rush to hit all
    with the sink. If he don’t wanna
    be the bad news bears..
    The reason I am here however is
    to vrify ‘how does this look”
    politciations. TO BEGIN: YOU SEE
    I CLAIMED but not so well that Kerry
    to bring in “the good ole boy
    vote,” moments before the lAST
    election put on “goose hunting
    garb”. (propogating the loss
    of life for a vote) . Now
    politicans do that, in their
    sick way today. But do
    lodical politians —look at
    his poets as quoted: “goose down,
    soaking in blood”. READ THE
    ABOVE POEM FROM HIS POETS.
    So some people truly beleive
    that polotistions are doing
    that “possible” — as that scary
    guy suggests.–time out. this
    is scary. Maybe a set up. That
    poem does directly suggest that
    “I am sorry theme to the public
    I cannot tell you why i did the
    horrible thing I did. but.” (and
    rusted blade is another key won’t
    go into –truly. I SMELL A RAT.
    i’M LOOKING BOTH WAYS. ((9( ARE THEY
    reverse jackeling us..guys. I don’t
    know about you guys but i’m acting
    like an jackel here knowing maybe
    i shouldn’t be here. Sit. ponder.))))
    (((( and of course I will tell you
    right now. we hate the use of these
    animals terms. And I used one. we are
    still sitting and pondering. This is
    a trap. aint it? Report.What do the
    Hyenas say..what are they laughing
    about. Have them sniff this Kerry
    thing))))) you see read this: it
    has been an ancientkingdom policy
    with rusted blade help. Thatpoem
    is an exact exhibit ‘a” -that says
    nothing really –but key on first
    “bloody and goose.”. WHAT KIND OF
    MORON POLITICAIN WOULD BRING THAT
    UP. (maybe the/his poet is one of
    them blam kids, got in close; blam).)
    But what if Kerry is exhibit “a”
    sincere? “SNIFF”. let’s carry on.
    NO POLITIAN IN HIS RIGHT MIND WOULD
    BRING THAT UP. UNLESS.. well you
    see it is carrying things to a
    very far extreme to think the worst
    case scenerio that other guy
    suggested is true as he said.
    oUR HEYNAS SAID WE SHOULD HAVE
    BEEN GONE ABOUT A WEEK AGO..we
    should “not be here”..as they
    gallop off!!! dust. Bring in a
    girrafee and no pole. “READ”
    (we are going to sit and stay
    while. )
    It is too
    insane to be true’. I aggree with
    the girafee as he gallops off.
    BUT I CAME HERE TO POINT OUT THAT
    KERRY DID RIGHT HERE WHAT MAKES
    PEOPLE WONDER ABOUT THIS WORST
    CASE SCENERIO.

    BUT I ALSO CAME TO HELP THAT OTHER
    WRITER TO DO WHAT i SHOULD HAVE DONE
    WRITE IT FIRST. I GET A LITTLE HARSH
    AND DON’T FINE TUNE.

    HE SHOULD HAVE HIT MORE UPON. THAT
    SOME LEADERS DO IN FACT THINK THEY
    ARE SPEAKING TO GOD TO RUN THEM..
    AND THAT IS A BIG THEME IN ITSELF.
    IT IS NOT FAR TO TRAVEL THAT THEN
    THE LEADERS GOT “TRAPPED” INTO “OH
    SHIT”. THEY PUT THEIR HANDS UP. it’s
    not god its THE DEVIL. AND I GOT TO
    SURRENDER” IT IS SUCH A HA HA theme
    ..but not when leaders do kind of
    what that Kerry poet did which people
    see the poloticans do all the time.
    AND THAT IS THE TRAP WE ARE TRYING
    TO SNIFF OUT FROM THIS VERY ANIMAL
    UNFRIENDLY POLITICAIN. you see it is
    a perfect way to discredit that guy
    by bringing up a poem that says
    nothing. But you see that is the point
    of that scenerio our politicans do
    stuff where they say..they can’t
    tell us why they did it. Of course
    if anyone brings up that crazy
    scenerio it is self assination.
    Does Kerry want to assinate us? That
    is way we are sitting a while on
    this. HE IS SAYING I FOLLOW ORDERS.
    and I say. again as that guys says
    people see this over and over again
    (where however it is like our leaders
    plead for us to understand by..such
    subtley that ..he assinates us if we
    tell anybody that what he is saying.
    What kind of friend or you Kerry the
    liberal –“goose down, soaking up
    every drop of blood”, goose hunter.
    He is friggen sick we got em on that
    or at least hiring lousy poets for
    him. What did the giraffe say again.
    Same deal. (anyway you filing your
    thumb nails their Kerry. you do annoy.)
    It might be insane BUT LOOK AT THE COMMANDMENTS. FOR 2000 YEARS THEY
    HAVE NEVER BEEN CORRECTED.
    Two of the commandments if corrected
    we would be in a very different world.
    They essentally said do not eat other
    animals by hunting (kill) or by animal
    husbandary. WE WOULD BE VEGETARINS.
    that is NOT beside the point. Soaking
    in blood goose guy. The issue is.
    the hebrew translation was never
    corrected for 2000 years. So what were
    the relioguous leaders doing too. Were
    their hands up for 2000 years? That
    sounds insane. but there was a typo
    in two commandments..
    SO ALL I AM SAYING IS THAT GUY IS NOT
    CRAZY TO “WONDER WHAT IS GOING ON’.. .

    THE BEST THING I CAN DO FOR HIM IS TO
    POINT OUT THAT WRITERS POSSIBLE BIBLE
    CODE AND PROPHESY crediatials. iT sounded
    like he was the prophized NEW BORN ONE”
    BUT HE IS IN THE DARK BECAUSE..THEY
    WOULDN’T LET HIM OUT OF HIS HOLE -OR
    LET HIM IN TO TEH LOOP. (and the poor
    think tanks..we can’t tell anybody
    he was the kitchen sink. DON’T. MAYBE
    . YOU GUYS KNOW how that works.

    I, we are out of here. I think. what
    did we forget.

    Well truly, the best way to talk to
    people with new concepts is suggest
    points they can work up or warm up
    to before being hit with the sink.
    –and worst, and most bissare worst
    case scenerio. There is reason to
    beleive something is screwing with
    us but good. And well it acts just
    like the devil is supposed to act
    and the devil says it is like an
    act. As you will modernize you will
    modern your concept of me. But I will
    stick to the theme. And you should stick
    to the theme too. of never being swayed
    by what you can interpret as acts of
    evil perusadingyou. From media to
    direct mental manipulation where you
    don’t know it is happening but like
    leads you to war (this for leaders) to
    the insane idea that some leaders are
    following orders. BECAUSE THEY
    MODERNIZED THE THEME. and then no
    longer followed the old theme of
    saying no. anyway it just is food
    for thought.(WE ARE VEGANS!! ) that
    that other guy was bringing up.
    He said it sounded crazy too.
    (I agree. if i had my way it would
    be the leaders heads that would not
    see the light of day. But apparently
    there is some good reason why that
    not the case..)

    WELL ANYWAY WE ARE GOING to
    GALLOP OFF NOW..AS IF IT WAS A WEEK
    AGO. THERE IS DUST. BEFORE MY EYES.

    i swear they had us do the jackel
    back step, or no. well. we know
    you guys were doing the one handed
    hokey pokey. So keep up the good work.
    dust.

  • BloodySinkintwo

    Yeah yeah

    “Delbruk” was the name..since
    the Kerry poet to quota a aa said:
    “a crack in the Earth opened today,
    and a voice emerged speaking
    restoration.” It’s time to ride
    buddy (on no animals of course).
    “DONT BE CAGEY-SING OUT! OPEN THREAD.
    was where delbruk spoke.
    Note and note big. They might not
    call the new born one the sink but
    you see “bloody sink” where the
    leaders must wash the bloods off
    thier hands..” makes the prophey
    and hint more scary than funny and
    blamsfaoumous.
    It sounds like the guy was the van
    and rear gaurd.

    But anyway public. He was probably
    doing what we were. We were talking
    to them, leaders and their like, not
    to you. we have been in a pitched
    verbal battle for over a month (we
    figered we could topple them all
    in about a hundred hours..but no.
    And we don’t know if we even got
    to the leaders..But we got to
    head back into the forest. gump.
    not you the public. though I
    know you think we talk like that
    but. you got to talk real simple
    like to these guys.

    And Lsst i did have a duck when
    I was three. and I think i raised
    my hands and screamed to the very
    heavens. This is my life this is
    what I do, this is the reason for
    my very existance. And what was
    that about. I had my tryclcle. I
    had my best buddy duck and most
    importantly i had my hammer. And
    it was only through finding and
    smashing open walnuts could i
    fullfill my existance in life
    in helping and feeding my buddy.
    It was worked out. But a neighbor
    or two and family mentioned maybe
    walnuts are not all he should eat
    and make sure you smash up the
    nuts. Are you friggen crashing
    I gave them a look –at least
    about the last part –shoving
    my hammer before their faces.
    I am a pro here. This is what
    I do. Anyway it was worked out
    and somewhat to my disaproval
    –lets see him like other types
    of food. I stood their with
    my hands on my hips..

    Gone. and boy –talk to the rocket
    scietists. Throwing beings here in
    boiling water. If my read is right
    this world should have traveled at
    the speed of light with its back up
    now to the edge of the universe. and
    just be shaken in utter fear. How
    come we are not there. Speak to the
    gods huh. well they say they got
    something far worse than a pokey up
    there It aint hokey. Its called hell.

    Ha ha. and people want the end to
    come now. eh. How fast can you not
    eat animals..which really translates
    to how fast can you start saving a
    number of animals before you meet
    your maker if it ends soon.

    Down periscope. left full rudder.

  • SORRYBloodySink

    SORRY –typo—

    Folks but that great researcher and tell
    IT ALL GUY (like throwing the kitchen
    sink at you ) was: NOT “delbruck” BUT
    “BRUCKDEL” of comment on 5/20/2006
    “Don’t be cagey –Sing out! Open thread.

    Here was a pertinent and great quote for
    our above experence:

    “THERE IS A STORY ABOUT OUR LEADERS WORLD
    WIDE WHEREBY THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE ACTING
    LIKE THE PROVERBIAL “JACKEL/S.” and
    picture a band of three or four skittish
    acting jackels. And here is the story.
    They look up our leaders do, feeling like
    Jackels and say to one All Mighty or
    Another, and say, ” We are going to get
    it aren’t we? ” “Well ” the voice from
    above says. (((not below like the vioce
    Kerry’s poet said Kerry’s listening to.
    That would be that Kerry is listen to
    the devil!! Right?! we add here.now to
    continue with this guys quote:))) “if
    you keep tugging on that corpse, you
    know its true. In fact if you keep
    tugging on that corpse, that corpse
    being the earth itself being the earth
    itself and being on it, and worrying
    it as you do, with all your your tug
    and leg action..Mother Nature herself
    is going to bring down some of her
    favorite on you, as well we might.”

    And what he was meaning is the most
    hilarous thing. It is a great laugher
    That everyone and the kitchen sink is
    going to be brought back for this trouble
    and IT IS JUST A GAS TO PLAY WITH IT. We
    all but one were total atheists..but
    lightening strikes were chasing us
    around, which eventally we noticed each
    in our own unbeliving way..WE JUST KNOW
    SOMETHING IS UP. AND THEN TRIED TO CHASE
    THE TRAIL. HALF LAUGHING UNTIL IT INVOLVES
    IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE THE SANCTITY OF LIFE.

    So check that guy out. and check out our
    goose down soaked in blood Kerry. We should
    not tug on his corpse or they will send
    their finnest on us. And who might we be?
    We don’t care. we love animals. and kids
    and Women.. and guys when they really
    need help. WE ARE THE FORCES OF GOOD.

    AND LAST SEE: MY DUCK WAS A GREAT AMERICAN.
    I just thought he was great. and he was
    an American. born and raised. on walnuts
    and other stuff. he did like walnuts best.
    THIS WAS OUR LIFE. THIS WAS OUR LIFE!!!

    BUT WE BOTH SHRUGGED. I STILL HAD MY
    TRYCYLE AND SO WE TOOLED ALONG LOOKING
    FOR OTHER STUFF AND APPROPRAITE HANDOUTS
    FROM THE NEIGHBORS. ( I am not tugging
    and tearing at Kerry’s corpse. )
