Love Is Not Just Blind

it is often selectively deaf too,
which is part of it's strength
against the insults that people
like to sling at it, for it being tender.

Hobson's Truth

Whoever leads us,
including the official opposition,
their leadership is the only reason
that anything will ever be credited
as a government achievement.

So That Is History....

Every society that merits wealth over wisdom
and the power to wound over the nature of nurture
will de facto make religion a thing of utter hypocrisy.

Any such society will laden the soul with inequality
and make robbery though dishonesty it's prime virtue.

Paws For Thought

If dogs ever took out
romantic personal ads
in the back of periodicals,
to find each other, sociably,
would their adverts always end
with the phrase 'Must have G.S.O.S.'
(good sense of smell) ?

Humour is for humans
what a sense of smell is to dogs
-both enrich companionship.

The Hope Of Silence

'The word is now a virus.
The flu virus may have once been a healthy lung cell. 
It is now a parasitic organism that invades,
and damages the central nervous system. 

Modern man has lost the option of silence. 
Try halting sub-vocal speech. 
Try to achieve even ten seconds of inner silence. 
You will encounter a resisting organism
that forces you to talk. 

That organism is the word..... '.

From 'The Ticket That Exploded'(1962) -William Burroughs

Four noisy words that make quietness harder.

Post-Modern Capitalism

Is not quite a legal cleptocracy,
but it is certainly social insecurity
from the cradle to the grave.

And if anyone has a belief system
then they can have extra insecurity
-from time before they are born
into the life after they die too...

Self Knowledge Through Distance

The less a man
accepts that he has neighbours
then the less he knows of himself.

The best neighbours
rely on keeping a distance
from each other
which we do not have to change.
