New, Avant garde poetry - called ' YOU KNOW POETRY'

A conversation with two abandoned kitten, I've just taken in...

I live here too, you know!

...and I'm also sentient, you know!

And no matter how much you grow

I'll still be two hundred times your size...

you know...!


OTHER PEOPLE (INCLUDING ME)...

Most people don't listen

I'm one of them, you know!

Instead of trying to make sense of what you've just said

In an open monologue, 

they discuss with them selves, what they think you've said

- as if you weren't there, you know

Still getting away with it...!

So the BBC, an organisation that insists on total balance and impartiality – except in its employment, staffing requirements where, it has now been revealed (to no one’s surprise) that they recruit almost exclusively from the middle class, privately educated, social niche – except, off course for token gays and blacks!
Time to make it a subscription service only, obliging the thousands of managers with impenetrable titles to maybe, heaven forfend, look for real work in the real world, and then, who knows, we might actually have watchable programs that the billions of compulsory public money, is so assiduously failing to provide now…!

COMMAS....

I want to post on a faintly ridiculous subject - using or not using commas. I think I may use them too often but I see them as helping to get the sense of a sentence across - but then again, maybe I should leave that to the individual reader..?

THE UTTER HYPOCRISY OF THE BBC...

What distinguishes the BBC from other media sources are two things; first the extremes of hypocrisy where, while assiduously proclaiming utilitarian, socialist values that conveniently cover the current fashionable, lefty, ice breakers of race and gender – mindsets that wouldn’t have been out of place on the Mount of Olives– behind the scenes, are just as assiduously living the opposite, where a cabal – no, it’s far too large to be a cabal, let’s call it a conspiracy, of white males, reign supreme…while hiding behind utterly lubricious, meaningless titles that defy definition…
The other thing that distinguishes the BBC, are the truly awful programmes they produce with the billions of public money they get…
Time to turn the BBC into a subscription service…

Size doesn't matter...

We have, in the United Kingdom, the most expensive rail service in the world - by a factor of six, no less. They are probably also amongst the worst. Last Tuesday, will trying to get to Gatwick airport, I experienced Southern Rail (famous for all the wrong reasons!) when my taxi took me to the back entrance to Clapham Junction station.
Inside I was at the end of a long tunnel giving access to about 20 platforms and of course, there was no staff on duty. But I had allowed for that and had arrived early because, along with two cabin bags I had a hold bag weighing in excess of 22 kg (about 50 pounds). 

Looking round for information on where to buy a ticket, etc. I saw that the only other person there was a small dark girl who must’ve been all of 5 feet tall. Walking over to her, I asked where I could get a ticket and she said we have to go all the way to the front of the station, a distance of about quarter of a mile through the grey gloomy tunnel. She added that she would help me with my bags. With that she grabbed the big heavy hold suitcase and began pulling it through the tunnel, while I hurried to keep up.
We arrived at the main booking area, remember this is one of the busiest stations in the planet, and there was nobody on duty there either. I had to get a ticket from a machine, which meant I had to pay about £10 more than I normally would as it didn’t recognise my bus pass.

Our train, she was going to Gatwick as well, was leaving from platform 15, so we trailed back half way along the tunnel again and then, faced with about 40 steep steps to up to the platform, she picked up my 22 kg suitcase and virtually trotted up the steps. I was amazed.
Then, with a minute to go before the train was due, they announced a change of platform. We had about 50 seconds to  change platforms - to go back down the steps, along the tunnel and backup again to the new platform. This little girl, she was Italian by the way, then picked up my suitcase again and ran down the steps, along the tunnel and up the steps again to the new platform. I with about 10 kg to carry, again could barely keep up.
We got the train to Gatwick with seconds to spare, which if we’d missed, as the next train was in an hour’s time, would have meant missing my flight. Once safely in the carriage I asked the other passengers about this change of platform, announced less than a minute before the train was due. They all shrugged, it was evidently standard practice with Southern Rail.
When I went over to thank the little Italian girl for her incredible intervention which enabled me to catch my flight, she just laughed and turned away.

Why we should move to the Highlands of Scotland (cold n' wet) - or southeast Spain...

Why we should now move to south east Spain – or the Highlands of Scotland!

The only certainty we’ve ever had, are of the laws of physics - and they’re not too certain anymore - as they evidently now change with time! But, never mind that, as everything else is a consequence, intended or otherwise - of these workings of the laws of physics.

About 60 million years ago, the dinosaur was the top species, huge and angry they roamed around stamping on or eating everything that moved (according to the Hollywood version of history). Then a large comet appeared from nowhere and plunged into the sea just off the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico - and that was that for the dinosaurs! We humans soon replaced them as the top species because we had the three necessary attributes… a pair of thumbs and an insatiable greed.

Now, 60 million years on, it’s time for us to go - because we are, literally, destroying the very planet we govern! And who is going to manage this?
Well, nothing new here, folks - just the usual combination of the past and the future (which is just a clumsy description of time itself). And how are they going to do it? Through the good offices of an angry, psycho, 12-year-old boy who has now come into his wildest fantasy, controlling (as near absolutely) the most powerful nation on this benighted planet - with the nuclear elimination of the species just a button push away!

Of course, I’m talking here about ‘The Donald’. And who must we thank for his elevation to the highest office??? - THE Liberal Elite, of course – who’ve effectively governed us for the last six decades or so …and to an angry public’s reaction to them - to all these self-righteous, totally unselfish and altruistic gnomes who whilst spouting the most socialist (and sadly unworkable) principles of equality and fair play – make sure their access to caviar, Cadillacs...etc…etc... remains uninterrupted.

So, better move to south east Spain – as Donald’s (present) wife, quite likes it here…or the Highlands of Scotland – where his mother* comes from and he owns golf courses there!

*…why do you think he’s called, ‘Donald’ …and he could also be the first ELECTED Fascist since you-know-who, in 1933!

What's in a name..????

If Hitler was alive today he’d be a future leader of the Green Party. A vegetarian, non-smoker and non-drinker who loved animals and sought to protect wild life (with a fashionably modern, leftish antisemitism – his party wasn’t called the National Socialist Party for nothing) he’d fit the Green Party profile perfectly and would probably be MP for Eastbourne now, somewhere like that…and right on top of dog owners who allowed their pets to foul the pavement - just a thought…!

When it comes down to it, the LEFT and the RIGHT are exactly the same!

 Jeremy Corbyn has joined the REMAIN campaign despite believing in and proclaiming quite the opposite for the last forty years! Why has he, on the face of it, done such a publically stupid, career destroying thing...?
It’s simple, those with extreme ideas - either right or left, are like every controlling lover/parent/person; they know deep down what you really really want – and it’s never what you think you want...!
Here the Left think a win for LEAVE might put people like Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage in power…and that would be a perfectly okay political attitude if the EU Referendum outcome would be as temporary and as transient as Boris being prime minister for a few short years!
But it isn’t – it’s probably the most important, tectonic-plate shifting election since 1945 and what hasn’t dawned on these superior minds is that the British voter will be quite aware of the huge historic significance of this election when he/she go to vote - and won’t see it simply as a device to put – or not to put, Boris in power ….which I think perfectly highlights both the political establishments day-to-day, obsessively limited (always) personal take on politics and their disregard, nay, contempt for us, the ordinary voter…

A Scotsman nearly changed world history...

It’s a little known truth that a Scotsman almost derailed Christianity before it had even got off the ground. God arranged for Jesus to come up before Pontius Pilate accused of sedition and violent insurrection, as the plot required him to be crucified rather than stoned to death - as would have been the case for religious crimes against the Jewish state.
Jesus went along with crucifixion because, as he remarked at the time, ‘…at least the view’s better!’
But Pontius Pilate, after being incessantly harangued by Jesus’s court appointed lawyer, went outside the script and offered Jesus a hundred hours of community service instead, clearing dog shit off the pavement. It took a couple of bolts from the blue to get him to change his mind because, wouldn’t you know, Pontius was a Scotsman from Fortingall in Perthshire…

The EU and the REMAIN campaign...

...about the EU and whether the UK stays In or Out on the 23rd June – and I expect a late majority to emerge for leaving (the old want to leave and they vote – the young want to remain and they often don’t!) - the REMAIN campaign will have a lot to answer for whatever the result! 
Cameron & company have already hidden from the British public, many dictatorial Brussels decisions - such as the EU intentions to form a European army, controlled from Brussels …and recently I was drinking with a Belgium guy who claimed to be a friend of Juncker and he came out with the news that the top people in Brussels are deliberately delaying a secret edict, already made, where the UK would be forced to change over to drive on the right hand side of the road...! He said this was being concealed because it would likely to cause a surge in people voting OUT… and being Brussels, no doubt they would arrange it in stages; cars and motorcycles to change over to the right first – then lorries, buses and vans later…!
