When Eve

was tempted by the fruit
from the tree of knowledge
Satan was teaching
her and Adam the novelty
of built-in obsolescence.

Raising Awareness Is....

a phrase used by liberals
who say they want to change
the world, but when action
is required to confront taboo
they shrink away, for wanting
to appear to be inclusive, thus
they refuse all confrontation.

Passivity of speech makes them passive,
actively wasting life and choice
by going through motions
that change nothing.

Conviction always carries costs,
that sometimes convert into gains. 
Passivity will always turn cost into loss.

Television

-the medium which claims
to calm it's audience
by fidgeting on their behalf,
without ever leaving them calm.

In Another Depression Long Ago


Noel Coward quipped about
'the extraordinary potency of cheap music'.
I remain tight lipped at how recessions
normalise the atonal potency of cheapness.

The Piety

of sadism
makes forgiveness
the road untaken.

The Richer The Country

the more opaque it's media will be.
Vested interests will seek respectability
at the expense of integrity
whilst talking down to the voters,
and claiming not to.

The core of Capitalism
is about yoking private vice
with the shrunken ghost
of public virtue, the better
to normalise a corrupt future.
