"Doing Absolutely Nothing For Almost 40 Years."


The Holy Grail Press is dedicated to promoting work that standard publishers... you know, those with standards, might be reluctant to publish, which pretty much leaves poetry.  And let's face it:  No one publishes poetry.  So in the end, we’re left with a lot of free time.



Word of the Every So Often  

November 26, 2021

dissemble:  (verb)  to conceal one's true motives, feelings, or beliefs; to be less than truthful or forthcoming.  When working for a boss who is just a bit too nosey, it's often necessary to be somewhat dissembling when it comes to things like which church you attend on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and the occasional Thursday.

Once there was a man named Ojiwa. 

Ojiwa bought a house in the City

because it had such a wonderful view of the evening sky.

Ojiwa worshipped the Moon. 

He believed he should sit outside every evening and watch the Moon.

Except when it was raining,

or snowing,

or when he just didn't want to.

It wasn't a very strict religion.


One evening Ojiwa's neighbor saw him sitting outside,

looking at the Moon

She asked Ojiwa what he was doing.

Ojiwa told her.


That frightened his neighbor.

She told her other neighbors.

It frightened them, too.

Then it made them mad.

Then they contacted a really good lawyer,

and he made it against the law to sit outside at night and look at the Moon.

They passed a law that said Ojiwa had to move.


So Ojiwa moved. 

As Ojiwa was leaving, he said to his neighbors,

"You can get rid of everybody who worships the Moon,

but you can't get rid of the Moon."


So Ojiwa's neighbors contacted a really smart scientist,

and he's trying to figure out how to blow up the Moon.
