Tres Saint Coeur de Marie
Immaculate Heart of Mary
French 19th Century Prayer Card

PLOGS BELOW (JML's Poetic Commentary)

Hey JML, what is Fátima all about?

The quickest run down of Our Lady of Fatima is:

1. Pray the rosary daily.
2. Do not be a nihilist.
3. Convert your heart to love the world.

What is a nihilist? And why don’t I want to be one?

I’m going to give you the street version of nihilist behavior—

A nihilist is someone who is apathetic and doesn’t believe there is any purpose in life and typically writes some weird manifesto before killing a bunch of people. Nobody should strive to be that psycho. As a global society we don’t want independent violence or any violence. Our Lady Of Fátima appeared in 1917 to send three messages to the world that God is real and people need to have moral values.

Here is the long answer to what nihilism is—
Nihilism is the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated. It is often associated with extreme pessimism and a radical skepticism that condemns existence. A true nihilist would believe in nothing, have no loyalties, and no purpose other than, perhaps, an impulse to destroy.

And I wrote this poem about cliches
and the current apathy in American
Politicians.

Sound Familiar?

Don’t ever ghost me.
Don’t waste my time.

Don’t make me look foolish.
Don’t humiliate me.

Don’t rain on my parade.
Don’t say my dreams are half empty.

Don’t disrespect me.
Don’t under cut me.

Don’t bring me down.
Don’t reject me.

Don’t cheat me.
Don’t betray me.

Don’t be mean.
Don’t be hateful.

Don’t manipulate me.
Don’t put me in danger.

Don’t double cross me.
Don’t throw me under the bus.

Don’t pick on me.
Don’t criticize me.

Don’t hurt my family.
Don’t hurt me.

It’s already dead on arrival.
I will defend us all.
You’ll need a miracle.
You can’t handle my wrath.
I’ll never forgive you.
Treat me the way you want to be treated.
Just believe in me.
I know my mistakes.
Just be honest.

And you bitch... and bitch and bitch...
hmm mmm mmm...
Shaking my head—

Such poetry—politicians saying
Over our dead bodies — and
the people in hell want ice water

What’s next?
Pull my finger for the truth?
Guess what—

I’ll be ghosting you in the fall.

XOXO! JML
