Because if television if was addictive when it primitive it is now worse.

Andy Warhol

put his heart and soul into his paintings:
he was a sickly man with a simple plan,
being even more creative with money.

Democratic Politics

is like Religion-a good disguise
for turning altruism into selfishness,
whilst monetarising chaos through divide and rule.

The English Vice:

wanting to be seen to be fair
whilst being competitive enough
to destroy commensality.

Heresy;

the oldest form
of 'free will'
religion allows,
not that it
(or anything else)
is unconditional.

The Bigger The Brain

the bigger the lie,
and the more powerful
it's means of transmission,
the more it multiplies.
The harder it becomes
to unpick the lies, later.

If Humans Knew

the simplicity of dogs
then for being human
we would not make
each other cogs
in an infernal machine
to destroy  the planet.

Museums

are white walled
chapels of rest
for objects
with no use
left in them.

'The Big Bang'

was the universal
'leap of faith' for all matter.
Human life is small,
self consuming,
and slowly dying echo.

Life Is Not Worth

the superlatives that modern capitalists
use to describe it;
It is worth a lot more than they can say.

With the Wisdom of Creosus

millionaires plan the futures
of the poor around their wealth,
unknowingly planning
new follies for everyone.

The Universal

human experience;
life is always founded
on debt and can therefore
never be carefree,
though death might be.

Friday, 10 June 2011

Advertising

is to need what
hypochondria
is to good health;
the illusion of always
wanting more whilst
at the same time
accounting poorly
for what we have.

The Miracle

I will never see
is an end to
human hypocrisy,
because that would
include no more of me.

Given a Choice of Uninvited Guest

I would choose
in order of preference
1)spiders 2)woodlice 3)mice
4)rats 5)burglars
6)teenage vandals.

I forgive the mess
animals leave much more
than the mindless
avarice of humans.

Hospitals,

with their advanced care for the elderly,
exist to take the heroism out of death
and blunt the sharpness of grief.

Love And It's Exits

'It is always possible to bind
together a considerable number
of people in love, so long
as there are other people left over
to receive the manifestations
of their aggression.' - Sigmund Freud

In Heaven

everyone present except the host
is a happy parasite, put there
by a naturalising but alien grace.

The Fires Of Hell

If anyone should want
to believe in the fires of Hell,
their first consideration
should be their aptness
for being sent there,
and by whom they
should be sent.
