Readers of this blog

would never think
that I am insanely
happy, or happily
insane...
and that the older
I get the happier
I seem to become
-despite being human.

Higher Intelligence

Most of us
are wrong about most things.
Most animals
are right about most things.

Solipsists

are people who constantly
make love with their egos,
their smugness, their hypocrisy,
and think they are
mirrors of time.

Masculinity

How strange
that men bond
by doing silly
or illicit
things together...

It suggests to me
that In the Beginning
men, like male elephants,
were held in check
by matriarchy.

The day is dateless

How sweet the day!
The day is hateless!
The earth, the sea, the sky
are hateless, and Man,
at last no more,
is fateless.
There is no more man.

The world has risen
from the nearly-dead,
the world is glorious,
all creatures fed
except Man's parasites
and viruses.
And godlessness,
marvelling at all the food,
said
It is good.

Today in 'Rotten History'

The first US federal law prohibiting the importation of opium was enacted, aimed not at the damage the drug was doing to American society (none: white people weren't using opium), but at the hated and despised Chinese,living mostly on the west coast -
who, of course, were victims of the British Imperial policy on China.
The British 'Opium Wars' were declared in order to swamp Chinese society and administration with cheap Afghan opium.

A little later, marijuana and other forms of cannabis were outlawed in the US - mainly because it was making the despised and hated underdog African-Americans happier than they ought to have been.


The world

is much too kind
to the graceless
and ungrateful.

Original Sin

The first crime
was when a human being
felled a tree for the first time.

Alienation: the crime against Nature.

During the Renaissance

there were more women
immured in Christian convents
than in Muslim harems.

WC

Western Civilisation
a water closet
soon to be
a stinking latrine.
