“Touching Coup”©

Leave a comment

I have a little game to tell you about,

it is an old one… this is quite true,

it is a game designed to create a

stealthy person, one called,”Touching Coup,”

it seems it was played without bases…

no ball, and not even like ‘hide and seek,’

there was no correct time to play this

or wrong time, a game everyone could peek,

it comes by way of a friend of mine,

that lives in Oklahoma, an Indian game,

it was played by Native Americans [first]

and it is theirs and their right to claim,

the nature of the game is this, to ‘Touch

Coup’ one has to sneak up on another…

to reach out and touch them, where they

know they’ve been touched, Oh Brother,

it is a simple little game every child played…

to learn meant one found how not to fake

out someone but that they could then sneak

up on them without being seen, to take,

this helped young men to become hunters…

really good hunters can sneak up on prey,

it meant a lot to brag about… to lay down the

claim, the reason you’re eating is me today,

‘Touching Coup’ is a harmless game, and

we all know the nature of man goes astray,

when someone reaches out to harm another

is when we all rue the day turned so grey,

to blend in with those amongst us is where

ISIL now sits, in the open… and in our sight,

will we also let them ‘Touch Coup’ on us all…

or sit back and do nothing… thinking it right?

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

Edmund Burke

 Other than ‘Touching Coup’ is ‘Striking Coup’… there were also other forms of Coup: killing an enemy, wounding him, scalping him and stealing his horse or gun. As to ‘Striking Coup,’ hitting an enemy with your bare hand was considered the highest form of bravery. See more on this at this link provided here.

A Mother says sorry for things

done as they were done,

this comes as no surprise…

honest feelings of heart one,

“Can you ever explain something

like this?,” she asked the country,

“We are sorry.” The last word…

to tell all of her own fealty,

two attacks in three days by

converts, drawn in by hate,

rejecting love for our fellow

man… rejecting life his fate.

With the run of recent conversions to Islam… and the run of ‘radicalized-home-town-terrorists’ coinciding with each other, is this not the time to lay claim to the apparent truth we see? The strongest emotions, love… and it polar opposite… hate, have been misunderstood since time immemorial. To turn our head and deny either of these two emotions can create extremism… is to deny the capability of mankind to be loving or truly cruel. Please know love would have you submit willingly… and would allow you to go your own way if you do not.

The link is found here, on what one Mother said (about what happened in Ottawa, Oct. 22nd, 2014), and the respect given for heroism to Kevin Vickers, sergeant-at-arms, quite honorable indeed.

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

what have you to say?

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

missed you the other day!

The first meeting held

with all hands on deck

but where’s the Czar himself…

Oh well, what the heck?

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

what have you to say?

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

missed you the other day!

First patient in Dallas

with, now, two nurses sick,

from one to gain two…

the rabbit’s hat trick!

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

what have you to say?

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

missed you the other day!

Nasa’s there in Houston…

population in Dallas town,

pocket full of posies…

and we all fall down.

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

what have you to say?

Ebola Czar, Ebola Czar…

missed you the other day!

This piece is about the newly appointed ‘Ebola Czar,’ Ebola and what happened as a result of him missing the “First Meeting.” I called this one,”What have you to say?” but it could have been titled,”What does this tell us!?!” The first official meeting held, with all the right people there… but the Presidentially appointed one to head the task force- what does this tell you?


The White House had this to say…


“An interesting picture”©

People can make the claim something might be interesting… but can they follow through with it as often as you heard it before? The proof is in the pudding, they say… so here’s a spoon!

Lady in a box

This is not one of those every day situations or sights in these parts… maybe not even New York City? Is this not peculiar enough to be presumed interesting? Let’s look closer…

As the story was told me, by someone on the scene, the box and it’s occupant was part of a movie being produced by a Japanese film crew. I asked if it would be OK to take a picture and received a nod of approval. An interesting event on a rather common Friday afternoon in Kingman, Arizona.

The energy expended of
a wave…
the surge, the pushing
swells of power
come from within, the life of
the wave has direction…
and it’s purpose is
driven by the currents
that feed it…
there can be no wandering…
the fluidity conforms to itself,
ebb and flow come from where
the wave comes to rest,
even to the shoreline of

Some here have thought hate was a motivator for me [this posted at LinkedIn]… but this is farther from the truth I care to represent- and a miscarriage of understanding. As proof to what I claim [OPENLY] Look at this web-site of mine (ON THE LEFT SIDE)… and see where Christian support is promoted for: Moslems¹, Christians² and Jews³ alike… there is nothing to hate but disregard, ignorance or unbelief.


1… Samaritan’s Purse… currently reaching out to refugee camps in Syria and Jordan, to help displaced Moslems.
2… Compassion International… supporting the descendants of Ninevah- Iraqi Christians.
3… International Fellowship of Christians and Jews… To show support for Jewish immigrants to Israel, those in need of food and other necessities.

Open your eyes to the truth… all humanity should help each other- for we have more in common as humans! What tends to divide us is: what we choose to believe, perceive from that lens (biased or not) or what we think we see (subjectively) when it seems to be imposed on. I think we all need a reality check… to look within and see if love is where we are coming from ourselves? Love should be all inclusive or it cannot be called love… I can accept you from a loving perspective but don’t ask me to accept your behavior if it is wrong. The daily news shows us where hate will take us to… an extreme distance from love- where love is: not found, looked for or even considered worthy of the same value you or I might give it. Is a wave of this type then powerless?

1 Corinthians 14:11 KJV

Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.

There is nothing more frightening today, as a parent should become aware of it, than to think WE are the one’s responsible for contributing to the possible risks of: harming our children, providing the opportunity to those who might desire to harm our kids… or much worse. This is what the current technology is doing… making it easier to find “THE NEXT VICTIM.” I can only hope it won’t be done by your own hand against someone you love… or say you love. This is “a WAKE-UP CALL” to the problems of social media, to become more aware of the awareness of others… and those who might want simply more than modest attention. How cute the picture is is of little relevance to someone that cares for someone to: rape, abuse or kill. I found another Blogger, and it is found in his post… a news article you must watch on your own to realize just how easy it has become to find someone to do something to! The next time you want to brag or boast about that cute little picture you just posted on Facebook or any other means… think about this post before you do it. Then think about this post if you did!

Stay safe… and keep those you love safe… safe from those that might do you or your loved ones harm. Food for thought!

It is a ‘Joy’ to share another outlet is coming down the pipe… opportunities for any that do consider themselves writers or Authors and such! I just listed my second book, “Of eagles and ostriches,” with Kobo and hope to do this with Apple and iBook within a two week period. At Apple, with iBook, I’ll also be able to place my Audio eBooks with them… before taking it to the next level (a hard copy Audio Book, in CD format), and I’d like to do this through Hastings. Encouraged by their National Buyer, a few years back, I was told they could start in Arizona… and with any success we could go National. I hope to see a modicum of success before this actually happens. Do you think I have a chance? Please pray on this… there are many blessings in store for God’s own that need help ‘from a greater hand than mine.’

This eBook  is currently listed with: Kindle, NOOK and Kobo... soon to add Apple and iBook.
