Love, Peace or Else: Who Ya Got?

cup-of-joeI don’t have the patience for Instant Karma, so Love can rescue me anytime Love wants to! You grab the margaritas, I’ll start up the
Jacuzzi, and we’ll get this rescue party started right. But can Love rescue the world? Throw a rock in the air and it’ll hit someone
or some country trying to curb-stomp Love into oblivion. Love has had its back up, its back up against the wall so many times that
it has sheet rock permanently embedded between its shoulder blades, yet it always heeds the battle call. Some have a love/hate relationship with Love. Love loves hate and hate hates Love. I just blew your mind, I know, but try to keep up. Can we truly be ONE tonight if the troops of hatred are on the ground beneath her feet and about to dig into your soul, not to mention launching a grenade up your Vorsprung durch Technik?  Whether it be Putin on the hits in the Ukraine, North Korea’s famine fetish, the entire continent of Africa or your little cubicle of a black jaded heart, LOVE has the power to break the monster’s back. Sometimes we all want to check out and get it wrong, especially Friday nights after 3 or 4 Scorpion Bowls. When your rocket is at the fun fair and he’s standing at full attention, looking around the bar like he just doesn’t care…it’s time to go home for some peace…OR ELSE. Take a page out of my book, put LOVE on speed dial and give him a call. It’s toll free, and if you call within the next ten minutes, he’ll even throw in an extra bottle of forgiveness at no extra charge. So, what do you say, daughters of Zion and sons of Abraham? Can we give LOVE a try? No? Then, screw!  😉

    How your wife has stayed with you all these years is a mystery to me.

      It’s not because of my incredible blogging skills, that we know. She does move in Mysterious Ways. 😉

        The fact that she is moving at all and not in a straight jacket is mysterious enough for me.

    Joe, that´s a great blog about a topic that is so essential for mankind! When we look at the world we often see “else” instead of love and peace, because hope and history don´t rhyme. But when love comes to town, if love doesn´t turn to rust and if we feel loved love is the song that we hear in our heads.

      You’re right Pam about “Else.” It does seem to always be in the headlines, but Love always prevails.

        You’re probably going to hate me for this, but…
        Remember the golden calf from the Exodus story? Do you think they named her Elsie?

    LOVE and PEACE from MLK!!! LOVE AND PEACE reflecting on the horrors of the A bomb in writing and performing the unforgettable fire , a sort of homecoming , etc
    LOVE and PEACE- CONSTANT theme of our boys ……one of their BEST themes ….familial love , brotherly love – “i’ve had enough of romantic love ” (bono, NOT me)

    maybe we should curb stomp hate mongering idiots into loving submission – ha ha

        Leeny, when you take off for months, you gain stamina. Clearly, Jim is energized. Jim, we look forward to your next comment in June. 😉
