A humble refutation of monotheism

If we are 'made in God's image',
God must be a pretty ugly animal
compared with, say, a Slow Loris.

And if we are the best that God
could produce, God help Him!

(I guess he didn't so much die
as lose the will to live...)

Tournament of values

What nobody will learn at school
is the only thing worth knowing:
how to live.

A Maundering

I am so disgusted by double-think,
mendacity, hypocrisy and greed
that I sometimes think that if
al-Qaïda of the Amazing Aircraft
were vegetarian non-breeders
I'd join them.

But then I remember that a certain
Adolf Schicklgruber Hitler
was a vegetarian non-breeder...

'There are no good guys.'

It mocks.
The greatest truth
is paradox

The least of our crimes against Nature

is the sensory deprivation
and boredom of domestic animals
unto dullness, depression
and death.

"Day unto day

uttereth speech,
and night unto night showeth knowledge"

- Psalm 19:2

A kind of lampshade, skin
over skeleton, I glow
from the softness of
your passion
and not inflamed
by man's mean fury
his insane and mere complexity

Feel! I festoon
your labyrinthine, abracadabrantine stair
with a sub-luminary softening
that cannot come from ordinary light

That rare and velvet
is a kind of kind shadow-flare
that makes us both aware
of the sheer simplicity of sanity
Deep in the sewer,
the brain's profanity,
to each other's heart,
we perform the elegant and touching rite.

Expensive and poor,

religion is just
an expensive and poor
substitute for simple

The only time

that I like civilisation

Is that why we cut them down
instead of worshipping them ?

We don't say

'Beware of Trojans bearing gifts',
since almost all of them were slaughtered
except Æneas, his father,
and some anonymous others.

The Trojan horse
was Greek, of course.

In the afterlife

everything goes very
very slowly
because we are still
very old.

This is excellent in orgies
but not so good
in offices.

George W. Bush was quite right :

there is no word in French
(or any other language, except Japanese
which uses the same word in the same way)
that corresponds with the English word

Entreprise in French means 'business',
and un entrepreneur is anyone
who does a job for money or reward.

(This, of course is neither an apophthegm
nor a poem.)

Civilisation :

the war against the longing
it creates.

Just reversing the colours

from the Library of Zion

The most prized
bookmarks in history
would have been manufactured
from the undecayed
pressed foreskins
of leadingNazis.
But few or none were made.

Most information

is useless
(if not dangerous)
without the information
to inform it.

And so it goes...

(inspired by Orhan Veli)


I love thin hairy bearded men,
I also love hunky working men
and sexy men on the dole
(I'd make the latter piles of toast) -
but I love thin, hunky, working-but-
unemployed, bearded men the most.
