JUST BE(CAUSE)

Looking into things

(S)he realised I am Trump!
Time for a rethink …
Did I have a hand in this?
And what do I seek to learn?

Earlier in between showers
(S)he went into the garden
(With not a Maud in sight)*

Ladybird, ladybird fly away home
Your house is on fire, children all gone
Going, going, going, gone

India told me once just be
Give the wheel away
But not to just anyone
Don’t be so laxy#

Open the canister, get to the man inside
Quiet and thoughtful of others
Not the fly God
Nor the shy god

Believe and you will be transformed

Playing The Game

“The cliché is that ‘power corrupts’ but it would be more accurate, and more telling, to rephrase this as ‘the ability to define reality corrupts’! If I have the power to define reality than I am pretty much untouchable; if I have the power to say what reality is and what it isn’t then I can get away with just about anything.

One thing we never properly understand is the true function of the power differential in society. We can of course observe, as did Alfred Adler, that there is this drive to obtain and exert power (which Adler derived from Nietzsche’s subtler concept of the ‘will to power’) which effectively incentivizes us to climb as high as we can up the social hierarchy. There are obvious benefits to this – from the biological point of view, having a high social status means (for males, at any rate) that we will have a better chance of passing our genetic material on to future generations, which is of course what the basic biological game is all about. In societies all across the world there are male hierarchies of power but the incentive to compete for a place in them is clearly not about having the precious opportunity to father more babies than lower…

Who is this who lives

Seeking the possible

To the detriment
Of an already gifted

VINERY

So tangled
So densely woven
This vinescape
Hard to tell
Whether made up of many
Or of only one

Strange beings.
Each their own planet.
Who dares calls

Look around then look within
And burst out laughing.
