The End Of Kings

The video was included in Caitlin’s post
Bloomberg’s Rising Polls Show The Power Of Billionaire Narrative Control which is well worth reading and pondering.

The State Of Things: Triple senryu


Perhaps the only
evolution we need to
concern ourselves with

is in fact our own.
Then again it’s probably
the only one we

can do much about.
It’s as if the two were made
for one another.

Cosy Castle


Out in the black a tiny spark
Blooms into flaming flesh
That flickers, a fiery dancer
Amidst a slowly forming picture
Imagined, improved, approved as
Yes … that castle only dreamt of
Time and effort bring it into view
With towers, turrets and bartizans
Crenellations atop sturdy walls
Moat and drawbridge, portcullis
A statement of power, of dominion
A protection gainst any assault
From the envious or less fortunate
Fully equipped with arrow slits
Endless ramparts, battlements
Murder holes and oubliettes
Till in time as will in time all
The tide turns and with a sigh
The sandcastle returns to sand

Sound Advice: Four By Six


My adviser tells me
We can do anything
Though the impossible
Takes a little longer

Police And Thieves


Duly sworn in as if to protect us
Are our police and politicians

Similarly dogs are very useful
If one for example owns sheep

Having sheep one requires dogs
They each have particular uses

Dogs, see, have a dual purpose
Sheep, bless them, only one

The dogs guard the sheep
While they graze and fatten

The dogs then herd them
To be safely delivered

To the slaughterhouse
To be prepared for the table

Police and politicians
Forsworn and redefined

Police and thieves
Police and thieves

The Rattle Of Keys


Karma is force of habit
One thing leads to another
One thing leads to another
Karma is force of habit

Karma is habits
Habits are karma
Habits are karma
Karma is habits

We are karma’s slave
Habits are its tool
We are karma’s master
Habits are our key

Roll Up, Roll Up, The Circus Is In Town (Republished)


Deafening election ballyhoo
A further relapse into insanity
Louder, louder, worse and worse
The lies … The misdirection

Like the two sides
Of the same bad coin
Turning up over and over
Heads I win, tails you lose

Like a rancid smell
In the soggy walls
And rotting floorboards
Of the Off-white House

Don’t flatter yourself
You have no real value
To the puppet masters
Who possess you

As they have none to you
The dupes who ticked your box
They’re used to tests from school
This one’s a gullibility test

You like Gorgol. You Like Fessebouche.
