Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

A Poem for Ukraine, Winners of the 4th Annual Finley Experience International Views Contest

Hi all! 

Here's the first poem for Ukraine, this year's first place winner of the 4th Annual Finley Experience International Views contest. Considering the serious and bloody situation in the Ukraine, I thought war might be the appropriate subject of this first poem.

On Civil War



Know ye not that death comes 
with war? What is this urge that drives 
the bella machina? A pastime once played 
by RPGing kings, later assimilated into the 
infrastructure of the military-industrial 
complex. Age, gender, these 
matter not when 



your inner 

I know not what to do to save any of us from the thick 
pools of red trickling down these shell-shocked streets.

(*Please Note: We the People of the United States of America are citizens of a Constitutional Republic, a.k.a. The Republic. We are not a direct democracy like some believe. By the Constitution, we are a Representative Democracy. We elect representation to defend the Constitution and the People. We placed our faith with government in the people, not in monarchs, not in career politicians, but in the People.

You want changes? Then, it is time for you to take an active interest in the good of the Republic. Do not leave governance to career politicians. Run for office. Vote for third, fourth, and fifth parties.)

This November vote them all out!
Clean Out Congress or Bust!
