Son altesse la femme

Still seeking meaning,

in a world of pain and hurt,

I’m ready to sell.

Pornokratès, 1878

Cast adrift in an absurd and hurtful world,

we do our best to survive.

Open to the possibility

of comfort and relief,

regardless of source,

solace we crave;

day by day,

more desperate and depraved.

Beyoncé Pours $20K Champagne Into Hot-Tub

I despise rich Russian scum,

they think they can do anything,

and they *do*,

trampling all asunder,

as if god’s “chosen”,

easing vague memories

of Stalinist excesses

with pious consumerist decadence.

They know they are disliked,

but they don’t give a shit,

time’s too precious for that,

keen awareness of transience:

today’s king, tomorrow’s Romanov

(we can hope).

Hah!

Despicable scum, indeed,

exploitative, lying, thieving criminals,

the worst form of prostitute,

rather like their compatriots,

the English, and Chinese,

Americans, French, Iranians, and on…

… People (fallen, debauched, empowered),

now there’s a story!

Lewis Hamilton, Mudak

Selfish people suck;

taking life from our blood, bones;

neighbors, nazis, scum.

Fox Hunt 2

The English gentry get angry,

very angry,

when they get confronted.

Gentry, “genteel”, “gentlemen”,

*scum*.

Like demonic children they prance about,

utterly pretentious,

dressed to kill,

armies of dogs and idiot villagers in support,

foxes to slaughter,

today and tomorrow,

they rejoice in bloody hell.

Above everything, though, it’s a statement,

of their rights and privilege:

they are the upper class,

and you must never question them,

their authority,

or

their stupidity.

Trusiki, Dollars, Sale

They seem to think that bombarding me with consumerist, commercial gimmicks, “must haves” and “right nows” will increase their relevance; make me relent, to “buy” their thinking and ways.

They are wrong.

Every day I am more and more detached,

repulsed.

… Walk away.

Pinochet & Friends

Nothing seems to motivate people

(and evil)

quite like the prospect of wealth

and power.

Treason against self and collective,

“better angels” left to piss in wind.

Rebecca, Big Brother De

In modern liberal democracy

(as much as in oligarchy),

they who control the levers

of the mass media,

control the people.

Hearts, urges, ideas.

Black Square, Grunge Frame

Gutted…

eviscerated, complicated, violated,

overwhelmed by stimuli,

need peace,

shut eyes.

Lewis Hamilton, Mudak

It’s the selfish,

self-centered,

greedy, manipulative,

exploitative,

self-aggrandizing,

driven to humiliate,

(apparently instinctive),

nature of humanity

and society

that makes me believe

there is no hope.

I want and need

to escape!
