Life ain’t a major arcana It’s a flipped up board and spinning dice Life ain’t pre-written drama It’s the Universe in a grain of rice That’s wrong! It’s in ‘a grain of sand’ But it really means the same The Beauty and the Mystery Dwell not inside the brain The Great Imagination Is imagining the Mind Enfolding and unfolding In […]
When I’m on my death bed I’ll smile thinking of All the great sex I had Smile contentedly that I allowed myself true freedom, Satisfied that I am not going into the great Unknown regretfully With that niggling feeling deep inside that Others’ conditioned judgements robbed me of joyful experience I’ll smile thinking that I wasn’t infected by shame or […]
He wasn’t boyfriend material He was too easy to draw into my orbit With only the gravitational pull Of my indifferent erotic ozone. I didn’t mean to do it I didn’t even direct it at him The aroma of it just hit his nostrils and he Followed its scent In a neanderthal stupor It wasn’t flattering He was just obeying […]
Where does the United States get the nerve to moralize about Russia? Same place they get the nerve to label Putin a “killer” … a “butcher” … a “thug”. It would be difficult to name a world-renowned killer, butcher, or thug – not to mention dictator, mass murderer, or torturer – of the past 75 years who was not a close ally of Washington.
The radical climate scientists, the ones whose forecasts have been most accurate and have risked professional marginalisation and possible career damage to explain what is really going on, should be the ones who are now championed by liberal media like the Guardian.

Spoof Royal Navy recruitment posters, which claim sailors on board Britain’s nuclear submarines are effectively suicide bombers, have won the approval of Trident safety and security whistleblower William McNeilly.
For twenty-four years—eight years of the criminal Clinton regime, eight years of the criminal Bush regime, eight years of the criminal Obama regime—the world has heard threats from Washington that have resulted in the death and destruction of millions of peoples and entire countries. The Trump administration needs to present a different Washington to the world.
So. I’ve been analysed And diagnosed With ‘undesirable personality disorder’ Examined for danger And found ‘unsafe for use’ I’ve been ghosted Labeled an ‘unperson’ Unworthy of interest Sent to Coventry Expunged from history Left freezing in the blast Of your Siberian indifference You have averted your gaze. Like a king, Withdrawn your favour. Kafkaesque I’m left wondering What the charges […]
I don’t want a pretty boy Who’s prettier than me With flowing hair And pools for eyes And ‘sensitivity’ Who’s always writing love notes And romantic poetry And saying that His ‘heart’s desire’ Is to be with me Who loves romantic gestures And boasts of how he yearns To hold me close forever Oh how my stomach turns! A man […]
I met him on a train Heading out of Waterloo He was suited and booted A City gent through and through Late thirties maybe Coiffed to the nines He said ‘isn’t it dreadful These trains are never on time’ I replied ‘damn right! We need to stop rationalizing The whole fucking network Needs nationalizing!’ He looked at me Like I’d […]
There is a demented quality about this war mongering. It is as if the “American Century” — proclaimed in 1941 by the American imperialist Henry Luce, owner of Time magazine — has ended without notice and no one has had the courage to tell the emperor to take his guns and go home.
