A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

AJ Mitchell - Down In Flames (Lyrics) - YouTube

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. – Robert Kennedy

Rooting to be wrong,

Blown out the water, shoot holes!

Sides sucked like a bong,

No matter the impede polls,

Our crash’s burn does not prolong.

I’d rather fight 100 structure fires than a wildfire. With a structure fire you know where your flames are, but in the woods it can move anywhere; it can come right up behind you. – Tom Watson
