There ‘E Goes (The One Note Samba) – (Republished)


There are eight notes in the octave
(One of them recycles its name)
But then there are always those
Who only recognise one note
Repetitive and relentless

Me Me Me Me Me


Frequently, my initial reaction to this type of person is one of revulsion. but then I sometimes pause for reflection and begin wondering what sort of pain, fear and insecurity this behaviour is concealing.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. I think it’s usually the fault of the parents for spoiling the child in the first place. They always think they will get just what they want out of life and if they don’t it will be hell on earth for everyone concerned.

  2. I often wonder about that too, Ben – what makes people the way they are…why did the become what they are. What was their childhood like? Their infancy? If we had walked in their shoes would we have turned out the same? Or are some people just born that way with the incapacity for compassion, empathy, truly loving others? Rhetorical questions, I guess… 🤔

  3. Good insight at the end. I, too initially feel revulsion at the mememe folks. But realize their fears and insecurities.
