The Poet K – “You gotta move!”

Don’t sit and stew

Here’s what to do

You gotta move

Move with that groove

 

Jiggle and Jump

Sway, grind and bump

The pattern doesn’t matter

Just get at ‘er

 

Then moan, grunt or shout

To get it all out

Get over that chasm

With a rhythmic orgasm

The Poet K – “This Bus”

This bus is for leaving.

A tug from its gallant pilot, dignified beyond reason, snaps shut the seal on a cargo of tattered luggage and slightly shattered souls.

The roar of its engine scatters the remnant demons of a particular past as wheels claw at their blacktop prey, surging forth, muscling aside what may have been, transporting the lost but not the losers, known mysteries, separate but equal, viewing life’s detached landscape jumbling past, telephone post by telephone post, rumbling onward to the thoughts of something new even if its more of the same.

This bus is for leaving,

Tears best left behind to cleanse of yesterday.

The Poet K – “I feel your pain”

If someone’s feeling angry who’s in my world today,

I feel that it’s my duty to make this go away

Lest glances turn to harsh words, or curses even shouts,

For else it must be my fault, of that I have no doubt.

Citizen K’s Democracy Project – “Social Media Relevancy”

You have likely seen reports in the media quoting social media posts and presenting for/against social media statistics as relevant need-to-know information.

I have significant concerns as to how helpful this is in making important decisions.

Here’s part of my reasoning:

Suppose 1 million people post on a subject and 65 percent agree with one opinion over another. That 65 percent means 650 thousand people. That’s sound like alot, right? However it may mean very little.

In the United States alone there are around 250 million people age 16 and older. 650 thousand represents about .2 % of the population. That’s all, .2.

Unless the media can somehow demonstrate that those original 650 thousand represent a diverse group of citizens (which they can’t), then those opinions prove nothing. Though reporting them as relevant could sway public opinion

So, rather than quoting social media and reporting on the statistics of the postings, maybe the job of the media is to investigate social media itself and report on what it may or may not actually represent.
