It feels like a conspiracy,

logically speaking,

when inconsistencies

become the rule.

Please, dear reader, do not question your sanity. Question your neighbors, the system, and the powers that be.

Ofeliya_ Constantin Meunier

When time loses meaning,

as fickle machines drive us to despair,

and people are demanding,

variously, incessantly, selfishly:

we are left depleted.

Enlightenment seeps away.

Illness reigns.

Devoid, we are mired,

hopeless remain.

This world is a very sad place.

Chasy-slomanniy

It is said: God’s timing is perfect.

Alas, this world and its people are not …

They aspire to contrive, exploit, deprive

each other,

every waking (and sleeping) moment.

MAGA Devushka

Time and experience …

the longer I live in this world,

the more I realize:

Nowhere is a beacon.

Hope and aspiration lie defeated

at the feet of collective decadence and greed.

Further down the rabbit hole,

humanity falls.

Perfidy_ Flowers & Knife

One day it’s the system,

the next it’s the elements,

then your inner demons,

your family and friends.

Welcome to adulthood:

Non-stop diabolical onslaught!

You’re “responsible” now!

Always someone or something,

at the worst possible time,

betraying life and existence.

… What chance success?

Hurdles:

Barriers imposed to slow,

or prevent our progress.

… After a while, even the strongest will fall …

Neverending obstacles, take a toll.

How many hurdles can we take

before we break?

satan sowing seeds

You, me,

we,

do everything we can,

constantly try to do the right thing,

and yet,

time after time,

we get pissed upon.

The system, or some minion tool,

always seems to have a taste and need

for blood.

“What a wonderful world.”

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!
