A Kardashian for President

Keeping up with the Kardashians (1)

What will it be Kim, Khloe or Kourney for president? If you let Chris Jenner have her way, one of
the Kardashians would be on their way to the White House, as a resident and boy the America Government would not only be on TV, it would pay.

The Kardashian publicity and money machine does not stop! Today, it was Khloe’s instagram on a 1 1/2 hour workout, if all I did was workout to make millions, you bet your ass I would live in the gym! Yesterday, it was the guessing game of Kim’s “K” baby girl names. Tomorrow, it will be Kim’s weight gain and her plans on how to lose it all. There will be TV appearances and photo ops for all and that will be the summer of 2013, folks.

I think am suffering from #KardashianBackLash. I am not a hater but I want to get something off my chest. I was such a fan of the family’s reality show. I thought it was fresh and edgy. I would not miss an episode, until Kim’s over the top wedding and 72 day nuptials. It was such a stick it to the fans move by the media, E TV and the money making Kardashian churn that it just has made me repugnant when all I hear and read on the news is Kardashian this and that. Take a vacation! Come back in six months.

Is there anything else going on? Like the republicans trying to find fictitious crooked deals to set up the White House or the status of world domination by the Korean nut case. Just anything at this point will suffice. The monkey mating season, is it on track? Or, #PinkICON is there a growing trend to wear pink hair and matching clothing popping up around America? Doesn’t the Huffington Post have a poll out yet measuring the success of having sex in a marriage?

Seriously Folks…write your editor and ask them to stop the gossip news and deliver journalism on important topics!

"Driving Alone" #Poetry w/Kid Rock "Picture" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Kid Rock (1)
In presence of the Moon nobody sees stars.
― Amit Kalantri

I’m midway through my work week and that’s a positive thing! I can’t seem to get used to this summer schedule and the long days. Don’t get it twisted; I blessed to have the job and home to come to, each day. It’s a funk, I seem to be swimming in lately and I keep reaching for some good music to cure what’s ailing me or at least speak to it.

If you noticed, I am, also, not someone that is into just one genre of music. So today I am picking KID ROCK with his amazing soulful sound from a song called Picture featuring Sheryl Crow. When I listen to this song, I think of the imagery in my poem Driving Alone which was posted on 04/19/2013 and being right on point.

Driving alone
Driving alone, thin haze creeps to enclose
White ash in vertical procession quails to hold
The somber hush trapped along this old country road
In a distance chirp suddenly unfolds:
It’s a large one-eyed crusty green toad

Steady’s, the constant purr
To a well-tuned 8-cylinder
Rubber rolling over asphalt
Crashes stillness; a delay in fault

Judgment unyielding sealed
Wrong in its sight yet concealed
He is focused on a solitary beam
And drives in drudgery or in-between dreams
Time halts. He takes in the deepest draw
On a filter-less, as the radio plays songs in melancholy crawl
Images flicker in nuisance as unwelcome pests
A solitude his married, welcomed and knows best

Inside a darkened corner in some desolate country bar
Along a deserted road that’s going nowhere yet not far
He’s midpoint; lost at sea and can’t seem to find a shore
Adrift in the ebbs of his mind; misplacing time nonetheless craving more…
