When I think ill of Chinese avarice,

mercantilist spirit,

capitalist tendency,

the will to gain…

I try to remember the One Child Policy,

and, wow,

humbled I remain.

I reflect, instantly,

subconsciously,

involuntarily,

and overwhelmingly aware,

all too aware,

I shake my throbbing head

(it doesn’t help):

such pressure,

over such a shitty banality,

minutes and hours of life

wasted,

repeatedly,

day after day,

out of control,

rabbit hole,

frog spawn,

maggot salad,

horse meat,

human flesh,

wasps’ nest,

crumbling mess…

the garbage may

or may not

be collected.

Triviality sucks.

Today, they convert you

to their perverted way of thinking,

seducing,

enticing

and delighting certain tendencies.

(Clever, addictive storylines on your TV & computer screen…)

They inhabit and take over,

your soul and being,

leaving no space or desire

for resistance.

(Indeed, I wonder which evil was worse, and how:

then or now…)

Yesterday, they occupied you physically,

totally,

and made you pay, as they saw it, for the “privilege”.

The Nazis were a diabolical force.

Today, they occupy you mentally,

emotionally,

totally,

and make you pay, as they see it, for the “privilege”.

Nazis live, in government and media,

dictatorship by stealth,

democratic and liberal cloak.

Pavlov's Dogs

 

You, me, we…

The powers that be manipulate,

we salivate,

yesterday, tomorrow,

every day,

fashionable agendas set,

targets met,

they screw us for all we’ve got

(and then some more!).

Lies, promises, delusions,

bogus stimuli,

whatever it takes

to violate

and desecrate

your

soul.

Unable to help ourselves,

we lose control,

our minds are putty.

… Suggestible,

digestible,

defenceless.

… They rape us at will.

Pavlov’s dogs.

The abbreviation,

it stands for something,

no one remembers what –

much like a politician.

The toilet paper is shit!

So much so,

that it makes me hanker for

the time

when we carried newspapers around.

Newspapers which weren’t, perhaps,

but now, most definitely are

*shit*!

Oh, how the world turns.

Whatever your dictionary may say,

inequity

and iniquity

are synonymous,

concepts and words,

in this fallen world.
