Right Not Right At All

RIGHT NOT RIGHT AT ALL

Conservatism
is at best
a mild form of
mental disturbance.
The further
to the right
the more
troubling
the symptoms.

Balance

The opposition
(Unbeknown) simply poot forth
That which they oppose

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.

Quote Of The Day 1

“(W)ith certain honourable (and hence unprofitable) exceptions, journalism remains superficial, voyeuristic, and governed by the attention span of a two year old.

Weather Or Know

WEATHER OR KNOW

Hard rains sweep by
Rinse soiled streets clean
Brief respite though
Hark, the next deluge
Of turbid effluence
Generously gifted
By the thoughtless

Slumbering in simplicity
No fearful encounters
In radiant solitude
Wherein to acknowledge
Realisation’s spiky burdens
And consoling gifts
Onward, onward, comrades

To oblivion
And no beyond
Hooves strike faster now
Valley of death looms
Engorging black hole
Rolling thunder clap
Hard rains sweep by

No encore

The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN

It’s one step forward
Two steps back – or so it seems
Dreams become nightmares
The darkest hour they say
Occurs just before the dawn

The Trump Of Doom

THE TRUMP OF DOOM

Hark! The wake-up call
For those not already too
Deeply hypnotised

Marching Feet

MARCHING FEET

Hark the sound of marching feet

Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump
Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump

Having understood the past (or have we?)
How have we so misunderstood the present?
(TV, radio and social media hypnotism?)

Hark the sound of marching feet

Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump
Trump, trump, trump, trump, trump, trump

And the future, God forbid, I pray

Racism Rules? Go Figure

RACISM RULES? GO FIGURE

Gordon Brown*
Is white,
While Barry White*
Was brown

The world is
A very strange
And confusing place

The White House Goes To The Dark Side

THE WHITE HOUSE GOES TO THE DARK SIDE

Darth Vader puked sTrump.
sTrump IS Darth Vader … in drag
… but without the brains.

And that’s not the half of it.
