When at university about 1970 I asked why conflict pervades our lives. After years I found the answer is simply the question of meaning I call "the last why" since it will never be answered. Still, we try and have tried to "fill the void" behind "Why am I?" in ways that conflict, since it was first asked by 'Eve'. Thus we've created our open-ended history of conflict we will soon close if we don't instead choose the "ideal reaction to the void".

In 2005 I decided to see if I was a fool for asking by seeking reaction to my analysis the only way an anonymous carpenter could, on this website. I first tried to attract visits with prose posts but changed to
poetry for reason in rhyme is memorable. I've had to advertise so I could be twice the fool but I remain undecided. Thanks for sharing. Doug.E.Barr

BARACK OBAMA: winning the future

I listened to the president
Deliver his inspiring speech.
Although he had the best intent
The goals he set we may not reach.

To "work together" is too hard
When we are kept apart in life
By our "beliefs" which we regard
As rights, despite that they cause strife.

For it the president has praise;
But "common hope" there cannot be
Until we all together raze
The vertical economy.

With one belief and equal pay
Our life "horizon" would be changed,
And we would see beyond the way
"Titanic 'chairs" are rearranged.

The "future" can be only won
Without the tragic human race.
Unless it's shared by everyone
This life can't be the "better place".

Barack Obama: attack on greed
Barack Obama: fighting for change
Barack Obama: my hope
Barack Obama: victory speech
Barack Obama: inauguration day
Barack Obama: professing change
Barack Obama: sacrificing lives
Barack Obama: healthcare
Barack Obama: his Gulf oil war
Barack Obama: a cautionary view
