I want to know how it will be
Me and her or you and me
You both sit there with your long hair flowing
Your eyes alive, your minds are still growing
Saying to me
What can we do now that we
Both love you, I love you too
But I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three

You are afraid, embarrased too
No one has ever said such a thing to you
Your mother's ghost stands at your shoulder
Got a face like ice just a little bit colder
Saying to you
Can not do that it breaks all the rules
You learned in schools

But I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three

You know we love each other it's plain to see
There's just one answer comes to me
Sister lovers, some of you must know about water brothers
And in time maybe others
So you see what we can do
If we try something new, that is if you're crazy too

And I don't really see why can't we go on as ... three

I have the sneaking suspicion you're British (I love HBO's Extra's by the way). I stumbled upon your blog and couldn't stop reading. Okay, I didn't read every post, but almost! I like the Triad poem. It struck a chord in that I've been attempting to live that way for a while. I did temporarily in the 80's but I was too young to manage the situation.

I love your criticism of the country in which I reside. I refrain from calling it my country because I'm not all together welcomed here. They just tolerate us because they can't overtly get rid of us. I too share the same sentiment but often find myself at odds with even members of my own family. I guess most Americans are too close to the fire to see the flames. Sad. I was talking to my step-father on the day of forgiveness (that's what I call thanksgiving because the responsible parties should apologize and ask the Native Americans for their forgiveness), and even he, a learned college professor of economics wasn't aware of how the US forces other countries to exchange their currency into dollars before they can purchase oil. I thought to myself "If he doesn't know this, we're really in trouble."

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I believe we are kindred spirits because I share the same sentiment of so many of your posts.

Stay well,

Thank you for reply RCP!
No, I am not British. I am living in upstate New York and my nationality is Swiss/USA, a double citizenship. So you could say I'm a "bastard" of sorts...
My criticism of the US establishment is an emotion of sadness, not cynicism. There is still so much potential here, recourses in abundance. But nobody cares...
Yes, I said it aloud and clear in 2003 before the invasion of Iraq by US forces, that Saddam Hussein's decision to connect oil revenues to the EURO denomination broke the "camels back." Nobody listened. Hey, I'm used to that. Politicians have their own agenda anyway and the Iraq debacle was planed long before 9/11 by Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rove and others of the "Pax Americana" crowd. You should check out their website if you have the urge to puke.
But I see hope, and I will elaborate on that in future posts. It has to do with getting "decentralized" again, building local communities and local economies that don't rely on "global-dealings."

You take good care, -Zee-
