RAIL

I have very forthright opinions, strongly held even stronger opined… So much so that I made my mum cry. I hate the fakery of remembrance day! I hate that all the powers that be parade around with their faux solemnity, with great portent, pretending to be sad about the loss of life in wars that they themselves have sanctioned. Usually wars without cause except ones they themselves have set up. This is my opinion. I think about people dying every single day, I don’t need to wear a poppy. However, my mum never got to see her Dad, because he was killed in the 2nd World War at Bari in Italy. She feels the need to have a special day to think about her Dad. I made her cry because she felt I was not respecting her Father. She is not the first person I have upset this week. I have upset my kids, my friend and myself. I realise that although I was being honest in each case, honest to myself, that perhaps my railing against things and people is part of my depression… That perhaps running around on the heath screaming “Pity Poor Tom, Tom’s a cold” like a latter-day King Lear, is not the way to create a more healthy mental outlook. I’m contemplating upon these things. So I would like to offer a humble apology to all I may have upset with my opinions and the way I frame them. I’m sorry, I’m not feeling myself these days.

CAN YOU LISTEN TO THIS WITHOUT TEARS?

MOUNTAIN FLIGHT

beloved

MOUNTAIN FLIGHT

I dreamt of you dancing on the mountain top,

You wore the long flowing cheesecloth of youth,

You whirled a Dervish, joyous laughter swam

In my head, like a mantra swirling

In a prayer wheel.

 

As you spun your flowing skirts and veils,

Became feathered wings and your laugh

A plaintive call of our sacred bird…

You took to your shamanic form,

And burst the sky with your thermal wheel.

 

Your buzzard form was so enticing,

The call was a beckoning,

I yearned to follow, my soul sought flight,

You swooped lower, your song louder,

And as I reached to jump off

The precipice…

I realised it wasn’t you.

 

I heard your male voice

call from behind…

So far back, it’s Russian timbre was redolent,

Of previous suffering,

“Mishka?”

“Stay my beloved, Tanya is still inside you.”

 

So many lifetimes.

So many mistakes.

All for love,

Always for love.

REMEMBRANCE

POPPY DAY

DULCE ET DECORUM EST

ANTHEM FOR DOOMED YOUTH

WE ARE THE DEAD

PREMATURE BURIAL

EVERYBODY SANG

REMEMBRANCE DAY

This satanic bloodlust day, augmented by the lip-smacking lizard leaders makes me so FUCKING ANGRY! Lest we forget? Absolute disgrace… The horror continues unabated, every single day since Armistice day 1918. None stop war, led by those fuckers, drunk on blood and gore, their thin lizard lips salivating as they mouth platitudes about the rule of law, whilst enacting the law of the jungle… might is right. Do you now how many soldiers were shot for desertion, for insurrection, for mutiny, in the first world war? How many family were left to starve without a pension because their father could not go on anymore into the mindless horror?

Lest we forget? It was ordinary people like us that lived in holes like rats, fighting for what? Fighting for Imperial posturing.

If we are to truly honour the millions who have died in these facile factories of death, we must never again be led to war in jingoistic fervour, we must never again bomb the shit out of countries just because of their proximity to oil reserves.

So please do not feed me that tired line… Lest we forget… I think about the dead every fucking day, and say, Make love not war. LOVE IS THE ONLY WAY.

LOVE WILL SET YOU FREE.
