Mission 2021

Image reads: Mission 2021: If my liberty means the incarceration of others, I am not free. If my prosperity means the poverty of others, I have no riches. If my success means the failure of others, I have not achieved. If my wellbeing means the sickness of others, I cannot heal. Until we are allContinue reading “Mission 2021”

Economics Lesson

They taught me in Economics that money was infinite So why do hands curse and bodies curl, in boxes overhanging the highway. If money was infinite it would find them, would it not? It would flow downstream, flushing the  land with riches – fish, fowl, flowers, fancy  Did it get stuck along the way? DidContinue reading “Economics Lesson”

Sustainable Solidarity

Nations are only good for war,Parties good to divide and split.Until we work together as one,the Same will occurthe Always will stay,And only The Few will profit. ***** Short and bittersweet this week.

No-one wants to hear  From the Likes of you.  * Please take your rants  and your large-lettered cards.  And stand over there  Where the other ones are: * The sad and the mad ones  that couldn’t quiteContinue reading “Reminding The Forgotten”

Please note that angels are not particularly left-wing as that would mean they would perpetually fly in circles not getting anything done. (Obvi) Also they are unlikely to speak like actors who have escaped from a Guy Richie film so, and IContinue reading “Angel Squad 2: Whack-a-mole”

Gaslight in waiting

You told me to wash my hands and yet to raise them high in wanton communion, You ridiculed us as turkeys lurking and squawking whilst you traded your fortune, You told us it wouldn’t matter if we were close, and we inhaled it in, deep. I did. For a whileI stopped, worrying in hope ofContinue reading “Gaslight in waiting”
