The Bottom

Living at the bottom
is dark, and saddened,
hopeless, and abandoned.
Pain and sorrow are teemed with morbid reflection.
Seemingly, to be all there is.
It's where prayer is a welcomed solution;
a refuge from wreckage.

Chop Suey

With today being American Chop Suey Day, I have decided to share the Canadian Chop Suey recipe I was taught with you.  Being taught to use left over roast beef gravy; I use bouilloux in my roast beef gravy for added flavour; then, plan the chop suey for the day after the roast beef dinner.  Using your choice of beef steak, and some celery, onions, bean sprouts, soya sauce, and rice or pasta.  Brown your steak on both sides, adding celery and onions, cooking until crisp and meat is done to your liking.  Add the gravy, let warm up; then, add soya sauce (enough to darken the gravy), and bean sprouts.  Cook another five minutes.  Serve on a bed of rice or pasta of your choice.  I really enjoy the angel hair pasta.  It’s a fast dinner on a busy day!  If you try this, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have…  PS:  Use a nice amount of celery along with onions – to taste the celery.  PSS: canned gravy or pan gravy from browning the steak will work also.

Martin Luther – This Day 1963

Aug. 28th, 1963, Martin Luther King., Jr. delivered his speech.  His dream to have all colours of people treated equal around the world.  Since I read this prompt this morning, I have had a few details run through my mind.  First is, he had a dream, not a reality, and he was slaughtered.  Second, his sir name was King.  Just like Elvis, the King of Rock and Roll, and Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.  Along with Prince, the King of Soul.  In my country, there has been equity laws enacted that has given people these equal rights.  But, they still are not up to these laws in the area of financial equity.  They still have services below the poverty line; with estranged requirements, and ways of doling.  While they are over paid.  But, this violation is starting to manifest – effect those in power.  Along with those through the ceiling.  We must remember, it took five hundred years to develop our civil rights.  Faith, and time, will eventually deliver the wholesome results which have always been intended by most people.
