Secret Poetry Cipher

Good Morning, I was reading the daily blues this morning, while enjoying a cup of Sumatra one source coffee when I came upon this headline on news.

Infamous Zodiac Killer Cipher Solved After Five Decades

The Zodiac Killer’s “340 Cipher” has been solved by codebreakers 51 years after it was sent to the San Francisco Chronicle, the FBI has confirmed.

Infamous Zodiac Killer Cipher Solved After Five Decades | CBR

I read the article.  I then had a cup of Espresso and thought to myself.  I could write a poetic cipher.

So, I did.  To much time on my hand. Probably, but being retired and the fact that I love learning new things I decided to try. I learned several things along the way.  And that’s the point for me.  It keeps me young.  Learning, growing, and living life on Life’s terms.  What did I learn you ask.  Be right back got to get another cup of Joe.  (See previous blog entry) Home | Stream of Consciousness | Random Thoughts & Writings (  See I told you everything is connected.

Don’t believe me?  I’ll show you.  Just keep reading please.  I know you are hooked.  Please try to be patient. I’m having trouble waking up this morning. I need more coffee.  Think I’ll try the Italian blend next.

The Caesar cipher is named after Julius Caesar, who, according to Suetonius, used it with a shift of three (A becoming D when encrypting, and D becoming A when decrypting) to protect messages of military significance. While Caesar’s was the first recorded use of this scheme, other substitution ciphers are known to have been used earlier. Caesar cipher – Wikipedia

How cool is that? 

Today is the twelfth day of the twelfth month of twenty, twenty. The twelfth of never maybe?  Just kidding.  That’s first thing I learned.

The Roman number system was very cumbersome because there was no concept of zero (or empty space). The concept of zero (which was also called “cipher”), lead to cipher meaning concealment of clear messages or encryption. Cipher – Wikipedia

Of all the gall.  Concealment of secrets.  Sorry.  My mind  just work’s that way.

What did Caesar do in Gaul?

Caesar in Gaul Caesar was appointed governor of the vast region of Gaul (north-central Europe) in 58 B.C., where he commanded a large army. During the subsequent Gallic Wars, Caesar conducted a series of brilliant campaigns to conquer and stabilize the region, earning a reputation as a formidable and ruthless military leader.

Julius Caesar – Play, Quotes & Death – HISTORY

Let’s see. 58 B.C.  I was born in 58 but not B.C. I’m not that old. Close you say.  And then depression set in.  Not really but I did get sidetracked a bit.  Dang, my mind is so sublime.

Today is 12/12/2020. And I didn’t even think of that before I started working it out the cipher in my mind. That sent me down another rabbit hole. Because if you add that up it’s seven.  They called it 340 cipher. Three plus four equal seven. Seven and seven equal 14 when added together equals five.  Then I thought about my horoscope. I’m a Capricorn so here’s it.

Horoscope for Capricorn

There is some probability you’ll want to escape from reality today. You are not anxious to face a situation which demands that you commit yourself. Is this because you are afraid you may lack the ability to assume this new responsibility? Yet this is an honest-to-goodness chance to fulfill your dreams of success. There can be no question of evading it!

There’s a smart ass in every crowd.  The people who know me just pointed.  No matter.  That’s just the way it is.  So, I think to myself.  I’m not avoiding anything today that I know of. I’m just going to watch college football on this rainy day and chill. But it’s early,  I couldn’t avoid the challenge anymore. Because I sure would like to fulfill my dreams.  Lol It must have been the Java.

Let’s see, where was I?  I remember.  I was in today.  December 12th.  Gotcha!  Are you sure?

October 41582 — Julius Caesar famously came, saw and conquered and was a brilliant Roman general. But he wasn’t very good at sums. And the calendar that he devised in 46 BC – named the Julian calendar in his honor – was flawed, even though it was to last for 1,600 years. Gregory Conquers Julius Caesar – On This Day

When it comes to calendars, small errors can add up over time. The Julian calendar—the prevalent calendar in the Christian world for the first millennium CE and part of the second millennium—was an improvement over the Roman republican calendar that it replaced, but it was 11 minutes and 14 seconds longer than the tropical year (the time it takes the Sun to return to the same position, as seen from Earth). The result was that the calendar drifted about one day for every 314 years. Ten Days That Vanished: The Switch to the Gregorian Calendar | Britannica.

I’m not so sure anymore.  I hope they fixed that. Close enough so I’m not going to worry about it today. But the thing is how did I get here?  I know.  I was going to write a cipher poem.  And I keep finding all these anomalies.

A CONSPIRACY theorist claims that the ancient Mayan civilization has predicted that the world will end this week.

No more coffee for you.  I think you need to take a chill pill and write the damn poem.  No, I’m having fun.  Do you think Caesar did another cipher? 

What year is it according to the Mayan calendar?

Before the Gregorian calendar that we used today was introduced in 1582, people used different kinds of calendars to keep track of the date, including the Mayan and Julian calendar.

The Gregorian calendar was created to reflect the time that it takes for the Earth to orbit the Sun.

However, 11 days of time were said to be lost in civilization’s shift from using the Gregorian calendar to the Julian calendar. Over time, the lost days have accumulated, and conspiracists claimed that we should actually be in the year 2012, not 2020.

What did the Mayans predict?

The Mayans prophesied that the world would come to an end on December 21, 2012.

Scientist and Fulbright Scholar Paolo Tagaloguin fed into the conspiracy theory on Twitter, posting “following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012.”

“The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days.

“For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years.”

By Tagaloguin’s calculations, Earth will be destroyed on June 21, 2020.

What has the Mayan calendar predicted about the end of the world? – The Sun

Then I found this little tidbit on the same page.

1408 Order of the Dragon: The Order of the Dragon was first created on December 12, 1408 by Emperor Sigismund, then King of Hungary, and his wife Queen Barbara of Celje following the battle for possession of Bosnia.

The Order of the Dragon (LatinSocietas Draconistarum, literally “Society of the Dragonists” and “Order of the Dragon” respectively) was a monarchical chivalric order for selected higher nobility and monarchs,[1] founded in 1408 by Sigismund of Luxembourg, who was then King of Hungary (r. 1387–1437) and later became Holy Roman Emperor (r. 1433–1437). It was fashioned after the military orders of the Crusades, requiring its initiates to defend the cross and fight the enemies of Christianity, particularly the Ottoman Empire. Order of the Dragon – Wikipedia

Where am I going with all this?  When I started I just intended to write a cipher poem.  And after I read the article about the cipher being solved that is what I did.  So the poem was written already before I made the rest of these discoveries.  Chew on that little tidbit.

Okay, that’s it no more coffee or wiki for you.  I’m going to watch football Caesar. I hope your cipher is not to blame.  We have nine more days.  It’s the little things Rog.  Enjoy life without strife. I will but I’ve already written that one too. Enjoy Life | Stream of Consciousness (

I hope you enjoy.  I won’t post the answer in case some wants to decipher my cipher. Have fun!  Live a little dream and try not to scream….

Secret Poetry Cipher

I created a cipher.

To die for.

But in skipped no one.

My encipherment was read by none.

So, I joined a club.

And after the game we went to a pub.

I had beer and a Caesars salad.

And shared my key. That’s invalid.

You could hear the shout.

What the hell is that about.

But my friends warning.

Put me in morning.

I went home Will Robinson.

And married Mrs. Robinson.

Ironic that I would marry a woman with that same name.

My cipher is not to blame.

The Insider

Are you the insider?

I have questions?

I have answers but first questions.

Are you the insider?

The questions.

What do you believe about eternity?

Do you believe as I did, what I was exposed to?

Do you believe He will download from iCloud?

Have you taken the time to figure out what you believe about eternity?

Are you even concerned about such things as forever life?

Do you already have the answers you seek?

Will you share Eternity with me?

Sharing today and sharing in my days were different. 

Sharing has a dual meaning?  Doesn’t it?

Are you the insider?

The question is are you the insider?




Make the Two One

The Gospel of Thomas


(1) Jesus saw infants being suckled.
(2) He said to his disciples: “These little ones being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom.”
(3) They said to him: “Then will we enter the kingdom as little ones?”
(4) Jesus said to them: “When you make the two into one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside and the above like the below —
(5) that is, to make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male will not be male and the female will not be female —
(6) and when you make eyes instead of an eye and a hand instead of a hand and a foot instead of a foot, an image instead of an image, (7) then you will enter [the kingdom].”

Make the two one.

And have some fun.

See the show.

Go with the flow.

Forget what’s meant.

Enjoy the moment.

It will be a blast.

So, let’s go fast.

Let go of the dead hand of the past.

Because the die is cast.

At long last.

And it is you who is  unsurpassed.

For you everything is lucky sevens.

Because you have found the Heavens.

But there is only one eleven.

If you’ve become one leaven.




Stoned and on loan from God.
You need to change you tone.
Don’t forget you’re all alone.
But I’m in the zone.
No, you’re just a corn pone.
On and on you drone.
Let me see your phone.
It’s stoned to the bone.
But it condones.
The ultimate clone.
Alcyone tombstone.
Rhinestone touchstone.
Your secret must be known.
I plow the unknown.
Vague poets groan.
For I love alone.
He’s stoned.



Experience is simply, knowing no matter how bad IT SEEMS, APPEARS, it feels as if there’s NO WAY OUT, IT IS THE KNOWING THAT (YOU) will find a solution, a miracle solution, the moment you are supposed too, and not one second before.
Few will attain experience. Unfortunately. Because they do not seek it. Or they think they already have it. When indeed they do

What’s in a Name

So, I said to self.  Self, what Can we do today?  I know look up your name meaning.


♂ Roger. What does Roger mean? Roger ▼ as a boys’ name is pronounced ROH-jer, RAH-jer. It is of Old German origin, and the meaning of Roger is “famous spearman“. Popular in the Middle Ages and the 19th and 20th centuries.

Famous Spearman

My grandfather was German.

Definitions of spear:

  • noun:   a long-pointed rod used as a weapon
  • noun:   an implement with a shaft and barbed point used for catching fish
  • verb:   thrust up like a spear

Synonym for spear


  • Definition of trident
  •  (Entry 1 of 2)
  • 1a 3-pronged spear serving in classical mythology as the attribute of a sea god (such as Neptune)
  • 2a 3-pronged spear (as for fishing)
  • trident
  •  adjective
  • Definition of trident (Entry 2 of 2)
  • having three teeth, processes, or points

Of course, there is another Trident




The Trident missile is a submarine-launched ballistic missile equipped with multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles. Originally developed by Lockheed Missiles and Space Corporation, the missile is armed with thermonuclear warheads and is launched from nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. Trident missiles are carried by fourteen United States Navy Ohio-class submarines, with American warheads, as well as four Royal Navy Vanguard-class submarines, with British warheads. The missile is named after the mythological trident of Neptune.

The trident is the weapon of Poseidon, or Neptune, the God of the Sea in classical mythology. The trident may occasionally be held by other marine divinities such as Tritons in classical art, and trident maybe depicted in medieval heraldry as well, sometimes held by a merman-Triton. In Hinduism, it is the weapon of Shiva, known as trishula (Sanskrit for “triple-spear”).

Almost forgot Neptune

Neptune (LatinNeptūnus [nɛpˈtuːnʊs]) is the god of freshwater and the sea[1] in Roman religion. He is the counterpart of the Greek god Poseidon.[2] In the Greek-influenced tradition, Neptune is the brother of Jupiter and Pluto; the brothers preside over the realms of Heaven, the earthly world, and the Underworld.[3] Salacia is his wife.

Depictions of Neptune in Roman mosaics, especially those of North Africa, are influenced by Hellenistic conventions.[4] Neptune was likely associated with fresh water springs before the sea.[5] Like Poseidon,

Neptune was worshipped by the Romans also as a god of horses, under the name Neptunus Equester, a patron of horse-racing.[6]

I thought this would be simple.

What is Hellenistic?

The Hellenistic period covers the period of Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman Empire as signified by the Battle of Actium in 31 BC[1] and the conquest of Ptolemaic Egypt the following year.[2] The Greek language word Hellas (Ἑλλάς, Ellás) was originally the widely-recognized name of Greece, from which the word Hellenistic was derived.[3]

So?  What was I searching for anyway.

Meaning of the name Roger.

Dang!  Let me think.  If words mean things, then I am a Freaking Bad Ass!

Spear, Fisherman, Trident, Missile Neptune, God of Freshwater, Hellenistic, God

Got to love words.

Roger slang meaning

From c. 1650 to c. 1870, Roger was slang for the word “penis“, possibly due to the origin of the name involving fame with a spear. Subsequently, “to roger” became a slang verb form meaning “to have sex with”, “to penetrate”.

Huh?  Wait a minute mirrors can’t talk. That was my ex-wives mirror anyway. Just like her. One-sided.




The Facts

Are we really on the edge of destruction?

Or is it the edge of reconstruction?

Do you fear?

Or have you chosen to be here?

Will you run?

Or will you soak up the sun?

Will you search for a pew?

Or are you one of the chosen few?

Will you push and shove?

Or have you learned to love?

Will your core be shaken?

Or have you already awakened?

Do you even know of what I speak?

Or is your vibration already at its peak?

Are you waiting for the other shoe to drop?

Or are you waiting for the cork to pop?

Are you amazed at my lack of tact?

Or do you know these are the facts?



Endless Night

I want another endless night.

A night you meet someone special.

A night that seems to last forever.

A night I forget about all that troubles.

A night I have fun just being me.

A night safe in the knowledge that everyone feels it too.

A night when you stare at the sky and know this may never happen again.

A night of carefree fun.

A night spent rapping with you.

A night of nothing but wonder.

Just a wonderful night.

Please, with a cherry on top.

One more endless night.
