John David Buchanan John David Buchanan's blog:
The problem with knowing things is the unavoidable aftermath. When our ancestors didn’t know much, they didn’t know how stupid they were, and ignorance allowed a certain sense of blissfulness in their lives. This appears to be true for individuals as well as whole societies, although data support... Read more of this blog post »

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Out of the huts of history’s sha... Read more of this blog post »

The den of a lion, his elbows creek
A roar, a yawn, the master sleeps.
Is he ferocious or just a powder’s flow?
Fifty shades, the nimbs gone slow.

A lion still, he sits and waits
Or perhaps retired beyond his gates.
Is he the king? Is yes, who serves?
A king in name when spirit swerves.
