….of ‘politics’ & poetry…

….”May calls surprise election as UK heads into Brexit negotiations”…”Marijuana legislation: What was Justin Trudeau smoking?”….”Trump to sign ‘buy American, hire American’ order”…

Some of today’s headlines indeed sing—‘all in a day’s politics’ !!!

Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be.  ~Sydney J. Harris

A politician should have three hats.  One for throwing into the ring, one for talking through, and one for pulling rabbits out of if elected.  ~Carl Sandburg

The problem with political jokes is they get elected.  ~Henry Cate, VII

The road to marijuana legalization is paved with good intentions – and also massive potholes. With more urgent matters on his plate, Mr. Trudeau might well be wondering whether the hassle is worth the price. ~ Margaret Wente

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust 

-Rose Milligan

Cheers to a Terrific Tuesday!
