Who are you?
and where are you going?
What is your purpose?
Are you all knowing?
Always here, always near,
every breath I shared with you.
I spent my life right by your side,
and still I do not know you.
Time, are you just a
fragment of my mind?
Something we made up
because our senses make us blind?
Can we not comprehend
the whole eternity?...

Sometimes I just wanna tell the world
“You know what? Just fuck right off!”
“Get outta here with your lies,
your half truths,
your unchecked, slanderous gossip,
your egocentric crap on social media.”
Once upon a time we talked to each other,
and actually listened!
Now, in this copy-and-paste era,
you don’t even hear what you’re saying yourself,
never mind what anybody...

The advice comes from everywhere
The 'Spin Doctors' getting bolder
With lots of little anecdotes
To stop us getting older
So read it, take it all on board
You don't want any grief
Two minutes a day is all it takes
For you to floss your teeth
Two minutes hopping on each leg
"It's so good for the hip"
Where the hell does that come from?
It makes me wan...

~~I was to write a poem, to tell you how I feel. But I feel rants are more raw, expressive and real. So here's a rant, just for you. My bubby pumpkin owl, my baby boo. It may rhyme from time to time, but the message of love will remain and you'll always be mine.
Savannah Sienna Rose. Such a name is so deep that it dwells within itself to decipher what it means. A name that is travels beyond two...

Just say no to corrupt politicians,
lying and cheating with their secret missions.
Hugging the baby in the camera’s eye
then stealing its lolly and watching it cry.
Just say no to the corrupt EU,
actually achieving what Hitler failed to do.
A European State to control one and all,
watch as our borders and our nations fall.
Just say no to the media lies

The Old School Tie
It’s very smart In blue silk,
with snazzy turquoise stripes.
When daddy gave it to me
my first words were “blimey!, cripes!”
I couldn’t wait to get it
around my scrawny throat,
it went so well with all my gear
especially the tail coat.
It made my chin more obvious,
I hadn’t known I had one.
It made the fags subservient
to get done what should be done.
It made me...

Here's the latest post from the blog on my website:
I sometimes fear that I am becoming something of a broken record when it comes to the impending Summer Games. Not only that, but a broken record that had very little to say in the first place like, say, anything Coldplay have ever whined into a microphone. Or an interview with Boris Johnson. Honestly, I will never see the appeal of electin...

As I have already got a blog up and running on my website, it seemed ridiculous (and too much like hard work) to write something completely new for this blog. What can I say? I'm just very lazy, and I only have so much rage. Anyway, here's the first post I made back in December 2011 that kicked it all off with a withering look at the previous 24 years of my life.
Enjoy, and feel free ...

DON'T GO OUTSIDE
Because there's kids
all scissorheads, blade-eyes,
and skin impervious to your reasonable begging
as they wave the pre-cutting knife
in a goodbye to your drained face.
They're behind every corner,
in every shop,
unstamped shouting on every high street.
And there's concrete abode blocks
hammering your daymare...

Win for spoken word fans!
Here's the preview sample of Captain of the Rant vs. Hair Explosion's high anticipated forthcoming EP, 'Nudges Whispers and Threats'... the last EP, 'No Copyright Necessary', was called "a beautiful and resonant work" by Big Wheel Online Fanzine, and Attila the Stockbroker said he was "very impressed". High praise indeed!
