Treasure Island

Gregory Allen Uhan

(December 24,1987 / Warren, Michigan)

Thrive


An end to big
agri-corporate
subsidies

rise of local
independent growers
farming crops GMO free

an end to the forced sterility
and self poising
mutation of the food supply

clean energy powering a
healthy vital economy
wind and solar in place of
nuclear and coal

zero point optimizing creation
cutting world military spending
removing the tape worms
sucking dry the guts of
government spending and private investment
fair and honest individual enterprise

no longer protecting the fortunes of the few
sacrificing the rights and well being of the many

no more manipulating mass thought
through private owned media conglomerates
the internet protected under first amendment right
nonpunishable freedom of speech available to all

the people unified
under truth which
cannot be bought

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
