The want for nothing
Thursday, 09 November 2023
I want for nothing of this world
The grandeur and riches are unappealing.
The delicacy and deliciousness are unappetising.
Wealth turns to ashes in your mouth as you fathom,
The complete idiocy of the system that has become unfathomable.
I want for nothing of THIS world
Nature has turned against us...

As I watch the news I see a similar trend.
Many mass-shooters with one common thread.
Felt shunned by their peers
for many a year.
So, if you are kind
you surely will find
a life filled with many friends.

You have a phone meeting at noon,
address the issue head-on and soon.
Lobbyists are clawing at the doors.
I set up a press conference at four.
Jerry wrote you a speech
he typed it with his feet.
Suppose, he would have used his hands.
But, they were amputated per your demand.

It can help you pass your A-levels
Or similar bog-standard tests;
It will cook up birthday verses,
Can sketch some blackbirds in their nests
Or write a decent theme tune for TV.
But Beethoven’s ninth symphony,
The trio from the Rosenkavalier,
Gaugin’s Christs or the Mona Lisa?
Such inspiration it can’t get near.
AI is the service of the bland.
The risk is it will unde...

Everyone loves a story,
whether it's made up or true,
the Pharisee commander, with his tongue,
was a master of this art
People looked forward to hearing him
when he went out to preach,
he would recite litanies for hours incessantly;
everyone applauded him endlessly
Stories well told by the Pharisee commander,
so elaborate that they were taken as the truth,
and bewitched people gave ...

Long ago, it was the wife who would push him
-‘These are our sort of people,’ she would say-
To take that job, which he couldn’t manage
And came home each evening utterly spent.
Oh, the ordeal of dinners with the boss
And Councillor Twitface for Sunday tea,
When he would have preferred to mooch around
And watch the football or listen to jazz.
That certain kind of snobb...

We go through life trying to fulfill
By feeling full
It’s easy to live in comfort and abundance
But maybe you drown,
And you just exist
Strip away luxury…
Could you be with just yourself,
And basic needs?
With only your thoughts for company?
Because we go through life trying to fulfill
By feeling full
We consume with our mouths
Pack, squeeze, cram...

It is not a fable or a fairy tale,
even a child could understand my plea
that is why I speak loudly and vehemently
I am outraged to see
how those who wield power,
supported by uniforms and boots
see us as nincompoops,
weaving narratives of a distorted history
as if nothing had been there
Their very accommodated stories
build paper monuments to their heroes o...
