Wielding The Force (A Four By Six)

WIELDING THE FORCE

Jobsworths* and Presidents
Share the same brazen* view
What’s the point of power
If you don’t abuse it?

*Jobsworth: a minor factotum whose only status comes from enforcing otherwise petty regulations.

*Brazen: Unrestrained by a sense of shame; rudely bold.

Not The Real Thing

NOT THE REAL THING

Fearful egoistical manifestation
Engenders armorial inflation
Leads to superfluous titivation

Over time astute observation
Advises timely disintegration
For eventual emancipation

Trackers and cookies

Google self-destructs

I assume you’re listening
Hear this: “Get off my planet!”

Science

SCIENCE

Often their knowledge
Is simply blind ignorance
In a fancy suit

Exit

EXIT

The weakened ego
Exhausted by eternal strife
Bows, gives up the ghost

At realising
It’s always your assumptions
That lead you astray

WHOLESOMENESS

Everyone praises Spring
Summer and Autumn while
Winter gets a bad rap
Ego got in the way

I Of The Storm

I OF THE STORM

Never mind
Who I was
Ten years ago

Never mind
Who I will be
Ten years from now

After all
Who I am right now …
… I’m still working on that …

SWANK

Some men like shaving
Among them I never was
Waste of precious time

Equanimity

EQUANIMITY

I Heart all Comments
Except the other kind … which
I simply Delete
One day I’ll stop doing this
Then I shall have made progress
