    Land of the Beast-666

    In town, the sheriff represented the law with a 6 pointed star.
    He enforced it with his trusted 6 shooter.
    When they bury you, you’re buried 6 feet under
    and there are 6 pallbearers to carry the casket.

    The American flag has 6 white stripes between seven red ones.
    There are 6 coins in our money base – penny, nickel, dime,
    quarter, half dollar and the dollar.
    We speak in 6 tenses – past, present, future, past perfect,
    present perfect and future perfect.
    There are 6 vowels – a, e, i, o, u and sometimes “y”.
    There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour
    and 360 degrees in a circle.


    And when you get off work, you go and buy your 6-pack.
    You go home and plop down in front of the
    6 sided box called a TV.
    You click the remote so you don’t miss the 6 o’clock news.
    And when the newscaster’s words bristle the hairs
    on the back of your neck,
    your 6th sense stands on end as you rotate on a planet that
    races around the Sun at 66,600 miles per hour!
    This “is” the Land of the Beast
    and you are in his house.
    Welcome home!

    Five points the badge for Texas,
    the same for Tombstone too.
    In San Francisco's smoggy bay
    seven points are seen to do.
    "Each to their own," I hear you say.
    "the devil will have his due
    in a shakedown for civic pride.
    Those that can pay
    won't hang today,"
    Uneasy they still ride.

      Mortifying when you put it this way, Namyh. You even framed your argument like politician or an overly-religious preacher. That helps with the feeling of being at "home." Well done!

        Johntee - The "shakedown" never stops and is always there. Just had to write on it. Thanks J for stopping in. Namyh

            What this speaks to me is that signs are everywhere...folks see what they want to see. That's the ticket for a poet.

                Muttado - What's a few mortifying words between poets! I wrote this after the preacher politician erupted within and I'm mighty glad you stopped in for the lava flow. Namyh

                  RhymeLovingWriter - Sometimes people indeed only see what signs they want to see. Perhaps, it takes the poet's pen to write about what's not seen or what's hidden in plain sight. Now I'm kinda proud I had that ticket RLW. Thanks for spending a spell and it's good to hear from you. Namyh
