poppyxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Why are they selling poppies, Mummy? Selling poppies in town today.
The poppies, child, are flowers of love. For the men who marched away.
But why have they chosen a poppy, Mummy? Why not a beautiful rose?
Because my child, men fought and died in the fields where the poppies grow.
But why are the poppies so red, Mummy? Why are the poppies so red?
Red is the colour of blood, my child. The blood that our soldiers shed.
The heart of the poppy is black, Mummy. Why does it have to be black?
Black, my child, is the symbol of grief. For the men who never came back.
But why, Mummy are you crying so? Your tears are giving you pain.
My tears are my fears for you my child. For the world is forgetting again.

pondxxxxxxx

A funny old ryhme my mother used to sing to us does anyone else remember it or know its origin:

” Oh Jemima look at your uncle Jim,
he’s in the duck pond learning how to swim,
first he does the breast stroke, …
then he does the side, 
but now he’s under the water
swimming against the tide”…

Dedicated to my mum Josie Icke (nee Lomas) 11.11.1923- 20.10.93
Originally born Tideswell, High Peak but lived in Coniston Avenue, Litle Hulton, Salford 1952 -1993.

And my friend Nigel found another version of the same rhyme/tune.. was this a second verse or the original rhyme that was changed for fun?

“Oh Aunt Jemima, look at your Uncle Jim 
Scrubbing out the passage with water, soap and vim. 
First he kneels on his left knee 
Then he kneels on his right 
Now he’s knelt on a bar of soap 
And skidded right out of sight”

feetxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Walk in circles
Run in squares
Skip in zig zags
Jump up stairs

Step over cracks
Walk backwards
Splash in puddles
Balance on curbs

No need to talk
Just love walks
Might sing a note
Off with my socks

Toes sparkle
Feet are so cold
Crunch of leaves
In no ones mold

Being free, young
What I want, I’ll do
No chains on me
You should try it too

TWINS POEMS

The closeness that twins experience is unique. Growing up in the same family, and the same age, they are in a unique position to share perspectives on life. On the other hand, many twins experience a need for space. They may find their close relationship to be stifling. Depending on their personalities they may be the best of friends or worst of enemies. Their closeness having the potential to both bring them together or separate them as far as possible from each other.

Twin Poems

Special Gift

© John W. Lilly
Once upon a time mommy and I,
wished upon a distant star,
We didn’t know if we’d get our wish,
the chances seemed rather far.

We asked God for a little girl,
To cuddle and hold tight,
To love and squeeze and give
a gentle kiss goodnight.

Well, God was listening and the answer
came straight from the blue.
Not only did we get one little angel,
He saw fit to give

 

I’m a twin. We are identical . We’re both girls .

Being A Twin

Growing up together
Having the same birthday
Arguing, fighting
all the time
People getting us mixed up
Confusion, exhausting
Sharing everything 
Making up
Inseparable like two peas 
in a pod
Living and laughing the
world up in sync

“Polite Society’s” Purpose Vol. #2 Essay 19

This entry was posted on February 6, 2013, in Polite Society’s Purpose and tagged ,,. Bookmark the permalink. Leave a comment

Polite Society 1880s“Polite Society” is a term that came into use during the 1880s and it remainedpolite society 1950s with us until the 1950s. It refers to the behavior of the upper echelon of our society and is normally associated with the Protestants. Their behavior was guided by their strong Christian faith and their sincere concern for the feelings of others. Kindness was the rule of the day and both men and women behaved accordingly, in both their private and public lives.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Well, because people were born and raised within the strict parameters of their Christian faith, keeping that promise was relatively easy, as well-bred people rarely stepped out of line, whether at home or at work. This was because the children were trained early on to be polite, hard-working, trustworthy and kind adults, thereby eliminating the need to criticise anyone’s behavior. Everyone played by the rules with wonderful results.

Today, this is no longer the case. We are surrounded by louts, not only at work but at home too.screaming womanscreaming customerscool kids misbevaeblack guy and bus driver

And once again, we can blame the radical, second wave feminists for the demise of another comforting and traditional component of America’s glorious past. The concept of a polite society has vanished from our landscape with chilling and disheartening results. Its loss has turned, what was once, a pleasant, courteous and peaceful society into a cynical, crude, rude, and obnoxious prison.woman with scissorsannoying co-workerbad little kids

Christian women have traditionally engendered genteel behavior by both men and women. They demanded to be treated with the respect that their good behavior entitled them to, all in accordance with the lessons learned in the Bible. The Bible teaches mankind the dignity and respect with which women were to be treated as both women and mothers. The Blessed Mother’s, Joseph and Jesus’ lives were the inspiration for the lives of all women and men.  Good behavior garnered reverence for the women, esteem for the men and respect for both. This understanding of what comprised good personal behavior was one of the key components of our civilized society. 

Feminist leader - Bella Abzug

When the radical, second-wave feminists and their socialist cohorts took advantage of the chaos surrounding the civil rights movement in the 1960s they started, what would become today’s rude society, eventually destroying polite society, by veering away from Christian behavior and instilling the “do-your-own-thing” mentality in our college age kids.  

And yet today, they stubbornly refuse to take blame for all of the evil behavior that followed their revolutions, both sexual and societal, despite the inability for anyone to find, anyone or anything, else to blame.

After their tirades and psychotic hissy-fits everything changed in America. Gone were the sexual mores of love, marriage and children. Gone were the ethical standards of good business practices. Gone were the merit based advancements in education. Gone were the promotions based on talent. Gone were the pride in country, flag and our military. Because, gone were the essential and basic human qualities only Christianity can develop in a culture. They were trashed along with everything else bequeathed to America by the sacrifices of the Christian men, during our American miracle.

 Every traditional, 1000 year old human value, standard of behavior, polite kindness and consoling commandment were dramatically and publicly trashed by the non-Christian likes of Gloria Steinem (radical feminist), Abby Hoffman (radical political activist), William Kunstler (leftist lawyer), Betty Friedan (feminist), Leonard Weinglass (radical’s lawyer) and, Jerry Rubin (social activist), in less than 10 years! With the help of the TV industry, which was in its infancy, these sick people and their ilk, grabbed the limelight and our country, to this very day, has not recovered.

Our daily preferences are glaring example of this decline – people routinely choose football over church; kids sports over family dinner; irresponsibly over responsibility; sex over love; procrastination over determination; globe over God; secularism over faith; career over children; clothes over character; rudeness over politeness; impulsiveness over patience; pets over people; friends over family; rash words over silence; selfishness over consideration; divorce over marriage; and dozens of other disastrous decisions.

And why do we choose to jump off the cliff rather than cherish our short time on earth? Because a group of dysfunctional females in the 1960s convinced millions of women that polite society was for wimps and that their way would break the bonds of patriarchy and oppression thereby allowing them to achieve ”independence” and ”to be all that they could be.”  ”I am woman, hear me roar!” YUK!               It’s the Women, Not the Men. to be continued

BACK TO SCOOL

School is a large part of your life when you are young, and it can be a really happy experience. Sometimes though you might find you have problems at school which are worrying or upsetting you. These could be about friends, homework, exams, bullying, or feeling pressure to do well. No matter what you are feeling, ChildLine is always here for you if you need support.

School

Going back to school

It can be really hard going back to school after the summer holidays. Not everyone looks forward to it. There might be lots of reasons why you might be worried about going back such as:

Whatever the reason, ChildLine is here for you and can help. You can contact us any time for support.

Moving schools

Moving from one school to another can be a scary time.  You might be moving from primary school to secondary school, or changing schools because you have moved house. Whatever the reason for the move, you can prepare yourself and get support if you need it, to make it all go smoothly. 

I’m worried about moving up to secondary school

The change from primary school to secondary school can be scary. You might be worried about:

It’s natural to feel like this, even if lots of your friends are moving to the same school as you. 

Hopefully you will get a chance to have a look round your new school and spend a day there. If you are able to do this, it will help you feel more confident about when you move.  The receptionists in your school’s office should be able to help you if you get lost and can’t find where you are supposed to go, or you lose something like your dinner money. They can help you find your way round and also be able to help with some of the other problems you might have too.

If you are worried about anything to do with moving to secondary school, it can really help to talk to someone about how you feel. You could talk to your teacher – either your primary school teacher, or your new secondary school teacher.  They will be able to help you feel happier about the move.  You could also talk to your parents or carers about how you feel.

If you don’t have anyone to talk to, or don’t feel that you can talk to them about how you feel, you can always talk to ChildLine. No matter what your worry about moving schools is, we can help you.  

 

Friends 

Some people make it look easy making friends, but it isn’t always easy.  Not having friends or being in a group can make you feel sad and lonely. If you  are worried about making friends, or don’t have any friends at your school, talking about it to someone can help. Read more advice about friends 

Being bullied? 

Girl being bullied by mobile phoneIf you are being bullied you may feel alone and not know where to turn.  If you are being bullied at school, it can make each day at school difficult and worrying.
