An Ode to No-thing

An Ode to No-thing It is, as it is not, It is not, while it is. The need is, while it feeds, When it isn’t fed, it isn’t. Invective is the conducive; Oh, nothing does Matter! As it always does. Castles in my memory, Fleeting sands of all. Pain out of pleasure, …pleasure of the vain. Dialectic with contradiction, Unity from opposition, Dialectic is while the Unity is. Dialectics are while […]

After a certain while the System needs Rob, called Bob an old hog. Bob called the Mob, (which is now the System). But the System is organised and Bob is overpriced. As Mob is now the System, and System is the […]

Choosing my Christmas Tree

Spoilt by choice. This the opinion of many parents of their children. Of the guilt that people of “the-haves” types own most of the time they buy something new or own a new idea of their own life.

Living on the edge

Yesterday, November 24, 2015, Turkish fighter planes shot down a Russian bomber over the militarised Syrian airspace. Turkey claims the Russian fighter violated its sovereign airspace, while Russian authorities contend that the fighter was within Syrian airspace. Details will follow in the media, but what does it mean for me. Well, not much but also something important. ‘Not much’ as Russia cannot really do much about it except to impose […]
