Syria, Iraq, war for profit, and the Invasion of the Middle East

Politicians lie to give them an excuse to go to war, because war makes money. They lied about Iraq. They’re probably lying now.
War has ALWAYS been about money. Every time.
War makes money. Media, politicians, oil, banking and the military industrial complex all make money from sending troops to die for oil. All of the above lie to send people to war.

Some people believe Trump is an activist, anti-globalist superhero who wants to “drain the swamp in Wall Street.”  People are saying things like “he’s playing the long game, it’s like chess.”
So far Trump has incited war and made money for the elite like just about every president before him (including Obama.) I’m not a Democrat either, I’m not an American and I am certainly no fan of Hillary. The good candidates for the Presidency or Prime Minister usually get no press, or negative press. The successful ones are usually corporate puppets, I will not be a puppets puppet.

I hope Trump is an amazing actor and activist playing the long chess game. But that might be stretching positive thinking to incredulous levels, I shall probably have more luck placing my hopes in other ”white hat” activists behind the scenes.

Read between the lines. The deep state is still running things, still telling the same lies, the economic hit men are either creating regime change by arming rebels or by getting the media to justify invasion on moral grounds. Iraq allegedly gassed the Kurds. Syria allegedly poisoned children. The West turns a blind eye to human rights abuses LITERALLY every day, arming and supporting abuse everywhere from Saudi Arabia to Palestine but when they want your oil, gas, opium, fresh water etc all of a sudden the leader is labelled a ‘psychotic dictator’ and we have to bomb democracy into them. What that means is we will kill women and children until we own everything, have installed a central bank, and control the natural resources. It’s sssooo formulaic it’s become easy to PREDICT!

Some might say “protest”. And in a way, I agree, but only if that protest is going to educate people or cost the people you’re protesting against money. Any other form of protest is just a loud echo chamber preaching to the converted that the politicians and corporations ignore, including the mainstream media who routinely either ignore a protest or play-down the number of people who attended. Follow these facts – The biggest protest this country ever had was against the Iraq war. They ignored us and killed thousands of people. Then we had the Chilcott Inquiry that proved the protestors right, they were lying to us about the reasons for war. And all the people that lied to us are out of jail, Tony Blair was the middle East peace envoy ffs. So tell me, exactly what does protesting achieve if the biggest one ever had no effect. No, direct action that costs the people you’re protesting against works, boycott or blockade. But they don’t give a shit if ten thousand people wave placards, if it doesn’t cost them anything.

If protesting makes you feel better I understand that. It unites people face to face and people can talk about issues face to face. We all have different paths. I personally get depressed at protests now. I rant to alleviate my depression.

Some might “say stop paying tax to governments you don’t support.” But that will only work if ALOT of people did that en masse at the same time. And for alot of people to do that alot of people need too know why.
In a way I agree, and in my own way I tried that already. But I think we need to educate people first or they’ll never understand. I tried to quit paying tax in my own way. Squatted, dropped out of a “society” that supported the invasion of Iraq and the slow invasion of Palestine etc etc. I was poor, the rich got richer, and I felt like I was being laughed at for being cold and poor. Was not effective without educating people en masse about why and how they should stop paying taxes. To me it boils down to education. Most people don’t even know that the Chilcott Inquiry came to the conclusion that we were misled about the Iraq war let alone come to the realisation that we’re probably lied to about most wars and therefore it would not occur to them that our entire political system is corrupt from the top down and inside out.

IMG_20180415_070051_954

It may be a shame that so many people STILL believe mainstream media AND politicians BUT alot of people see the similarities between Iraq, which the Chilcott Inquiry concluded we were led to war under inaccurate data (alleged LIES), and the current’attacks in Syria.

Everybody thinks they’re doing the right thing, we just don’t all have all the dinformation. I don’t know if all the info I have is accurate or important, but I’ll share what I know until or unless that becomes too dangerous (or annoying), then I’ll see how brave or stubborn I am. Kind of bored of ranting about the same thing though but innocent lives are lost for money, can’t shut me up about it. Meh, zoom out enough and it’s just accelerating the reincarnation process. Hard to keep your perspective that zoomed out all the time though, if you even believe in such things.

I don’t know how or when the power of love will overtake the love of power but I still have hope.

More love, more positivity.

EDIT –

ps take a short moment to relax and remember who and what we are. Beyond that educate each other and strive to live in a way that doesn’t support these industries. The war industry fuels the oil industry which is also the plastic industry. Use less plastic (oil) and less petrol and promote sustainable solutions. Our house is buying in bulk to use less plastic and we’re gonna put sustainably sourced biodiesel in the Mrs van. But I also wanna promote hemp plastics and other sustainable industries, hemp plastic kills three birds with one stone cos hemp plastic is biodegradable so it causes less pollution, the hemp plant turns c02 into oxygen so it heals some of the pollution and it’s a replacement for the oil industry which nations kill thousands for. But first things first, relax, or we’ll be acting out of fear and anger instead of out of compassion and common sense.

Facebook Privacy and Plastic in the ocean – why does everyone suddenly seem to care?

Weird. 10 years ago me and my activist friends were saying “Facebook is probably selling all your data.” Still we used Facebook for the positive things and I had to keep some opinions off Facebook because I assumed activists were monitored. Now they’ve admitted it the world is going crazy.
15 years ago me and my activist friends were saying the ocean is full of plastic. Now David Attenborough has shown you the dying whales and starving polar bears the world is going crazy.
It’s should be glad that it’s trendy to care about these things now, but I’m just bitter that there’s a list of things that are still not trendy to care about or even know about, some of them being potential solutions to the problems above.
But go ahead, delete Facebook and stop using plastic bags like your data’s not still out there and stop using plastic bags like the last decade of plastic will just disappear.
Actually unless you’re a political threat in some way chances are all your data is doing is making your pop up ads more relevant. It’s the activists who have the most to worry about in this Big Brother world, their data could be used to profile them.
I have mixed feelings, the dominant one should be content though. Maybe even happiness. Content, even happy, that giving a shit is cool these days, it’s not just Swampy and his “crusty” mates getting laughed at for going to protests…
I should be happy but I guess I’m just irritated that so many individuals seem motivated more by trends than morality and all corporations are motivated more by profit than morality. But at least the trends are changing and the the trends are changing the profit margins…
Here’s the conclusion. We all have individual responsibility. Each of our little efforts makes a little difference but all of us making an effort makes a bigger difference. Now, the activist in me knows that if corporations invested in biodegradable plastics like hemp plastic the growth of hemp would take excess carbon out the air AND the fact that plastic comes from oil would lessen the need for wars for oil (the reason why we find excuses to invade various middle Eastern countries, it’s a conspiracy theory to some, blatantly obvious to others and we’ll get no prizes in a decade when the newspapers agree with the activists [cough, Chilcott Inquiry, cough cough]).
BUT corporations have one God, profit, so we the market have to change our spending habits if we want change on that level. Which brings it back to personal responsibility.
So yeah, I’m partly bitter, and I’m partly content, but I’m not gonna be happy til I actually accept that corporations don’t give a damn about us, or our grandchildren.
I feel literally heavy with the thoughts in my head, if I don’t find a like-minded soul to share them with the internet gets a rant. It’s been a while x
EDIT – ps in retrospect I think alot of people are motivated by morality, it’s just most people would rather not educate themselves, and I can’t blame them for not wanting to get depressed, awareness is not always an enviable position. As many activists who worked harder than me for longer than me would say I’m sure.

UK Election Results #ANewHope

So we blew up their Death Star but the evil Empire still clings on for dear life… No time for the Rebel Alliance to hold back. Gold leader, standing by…

Well it is obvious now that people under 30 generally don’t believe the mainstream media, saw through the bias, and saw through the lies. The only reason Labour has in-fighting is because Tony Blair and his cronies tried to make it right wing for 20 years. Corbyn just has to do pest control to get New Labour Blairites out.
We need to start boycotting newspapers that just repeat Tory agenda. The papers have said for years that Corbyn is a weak leader and nobody likes him, the election results proved that wrong. Now we need young people to dialogue with the old, banks and politicians created the financial crisis – not immigrants or people on benefits.
Rupert Murdoch owns half the tabloids that told you what to think, he wants tax breaks for the rich (The Sun is NOT the voice of the working class.)
The Tories would PERSONALLY and FINANCIALLY benefit ​from NHS privatisation through the companies they have shares in, that is not even a question. That fact alone should be enough to turn everyone off them.
If the older generation also get it through their heads that politicians and newspapers lie to them, and that’s a rational, financially logical conclusion, not a conspiracy theory, we might actually see some real and positive change.
Austerity is stealing from the working class to give to the rich and it was justified by lies.
But for now, ha ha and ha again. The next generation will be even more aware than this one.


But what next?

What is the actual goal?

 

To encourage activism? to encourage a coalition? is it an emotional goal or a political goa? Emotional goals have their value too sometimes we just need to express.

Well I’m not up for protesting for the sake of protesting. That only works if you cost them money or bad publicity, and as ‘they’ own the media it’s rarely bad publicity for them. And as ‘they’ have agent provacateurs it’s often bad publicity for activists.

Well my goal is education. I will get involved in campaigns and actions that educate people on some simple facts – the Tories will financially benefit from NHS privatisation through the companies they have shares in and the newspapers have continually lied to us about Corbyn. I will not gather with placards unless we also have leaflets or something to change hearts and minds, because protesting for the sake of protesting doesn’t seem to work in my experience. It’s cathartic and emotionally healing but unless we educate people or unless the protest costs the people we’re protesting against money they are relatively ineffectual, preaching to the converted while giving agent provocateurs an opportunity to make us look bad.
I’m sure alot of us went on the biggest march this country has ever seen against the war in Iraq and they just ignored us and killed lots of people. I’m willing to implement solutions… but I’m personally only interested in coordinated information and education spreading. Tories are basically voted in by people who believe newspapers lies, and I am willing to be part of the solution. But my past and my race make me a target at protests, I’m a known social activist and an ex-front line activist.

False Flags – what are they? And have they ever been proven?

To that I say…
1 it is never too early to discuss who might be the perpetrators of tragic events. If there is any question that may be asked it should be asked.
And…
2 nowhere in this article will I specifically claim any recent events were a false flag, I am merely proving that false flags do exist. Once that step has been taken and those facts accepted you can discuss recent events amongst yourselves.

Do you know what the phrase False Flag means?

If your answer includes the phrase “crisis actor” you are wrong. Most false flags have real victims, the only thing false about them are the scapegoats who are lied about, and blamed as the perpetrators. Has this ever happened? Yes. It’s been both proven and admitted. So, no, it’s not a ridiculous idea and that much I can and will prove.
“false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.

Historically, the term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where the use of a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag before (but not while) engaging the enemy has long been accepted as a permissible ruse de guerre; by contrast, flying a false flag while engaging the enemy constitutes perfidy.[1]

Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.. Wikipedia

It doesn’t necessarily need “crisis actors” in fact sadly they usually have real victims.

A false flag is not necessarily something that didn’t happen, it is usually something that did happen but was either blamed on the wrong people or allowed to happen. I’m not claiming people were not hurt or killed, I’m not even claiming this was a false flag yet. I’m just asking questions and giving people reasons to question the narrative.

I’m surprised how many people are already talking about it more openly than I normally would. This sort of talk invited insults and ridicule ten years ago, but now I’m often preaching to the converted.
 
🕊️
 
Before I get to the historical false flags I will address the assumption that our government may have been that brutal in the past but would never stopped so  low as to kill and lie for financial reasons. Actually the Chilcott enquiry proved politicians will bomb children over a lie. History has proved politicians will bomb children over lies. The fact that some can’t believe it is actually evidence of your denial, letting pensioners die, disabled people die, and people who can’t afford health care die is just the blunt side of a regime that doesn’t give a fuck about human life. Most of these ‘gullible sheep’ came to their conclusions based on years of research, not a quick Google. Research you’ve evidently never done or this would all sound less crazy to you. I know several historical facts less crazy than this scenario.
 
🕊️
 
In case you think the whole idea is ridiculous and no government would ever do that… (6) The British government admits that – between 1946 and 1948 – it bombed 5 ships carrying Jews attempting to flee the Holocaust to seek safety in Palestine, set up a fake group called “Defenders of Arab Palestine”, and then had the psuedo-group falsely claim responsibility for the bombings (and see this, this and this). (7) Israel admits that in 1954, an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this). (8) The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950’s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister. (9) The Turkish Prime Minister admitted that the Turkish government carried out the 1955 bombing on a Turkish consulate in Greece – also damaging the nearby birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey – and blamed it on Greece, for the purpose of inciting and justifying anti-Greek violence. (10) The British Prime Minister admitted to his defense secretary that he and American president Dwight Eisenhower approved a plan in 1957 to carry out attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government as a way to effect regime change. (11) The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security” (and see this) (Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special. They also allegedly carried out terror attacks in France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the UK, and other countries.

There is a bit of a debate over whether or not Theresa May’s husband owns shares in G4S (so I am withdrawing that bit from my evidence pile but mentioning the fact that people argue about it for you to draw your own conclusions and do your own research.) But there is plenty of evidence that G4S is ‘dodgy asf’.

“Although the NYPD has denied any relation to the shooter, Mateen’s employer, G4S, has some interesting links to previous terrorist events. And it benefits from terrorism.

Mateen worked for the British company G4S since 2007. Throughout that time, G4S has been what people might call a private, special operations military outfit. It is said to be three times the size of the British military. In 2012, a G4S employee was charged with making a bomb threat at the Olympics. Similar bomb threats were connected to G4S in 2013 and May 2016.

Previously called Securicor, G4S provided security at all three airports affected by the 9/11 attacks. Securicor/G4S had bought Argenbright Security—the 9/11 airport security firm—just nine months before the 9/11 attacks. The company later ran operations at Guantanamo Bay.” From http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/06/orlando_g4s.html

Does it matter whether the terrorists are here or there? What matters is they only win if we  get so scared we can’t love and so scared we can’t share. They don’t want you to be happy. They want you to be stressed. They want you to be scared. They don’t want you to go out, share love and live your life without being a microchipped, monitored slave to fear.
So what we gonna do? We gonna keep on loving. We gonna keep spreading the love. We gonna find solutions rather than problems.
🕊️🕉️❤️🕉️🕊️
If you mind is sufficiently open to question recent events, may I suggest you start here with an article by John Pilger… – https://off-guardian.org/2017/06/03/terror-in-britain-what-did-the-prime-minister-know/
And if you’re up for something more  a light-hearted I wrote these lyrics for Who Cares months before the recent attacks “most people just want to know ‘who can we blame’ and after that it’s back to ‘who won the game?’ The banks and politicians have been performing the greatest robbery while immigrants get blamed for the lack of jobs and the economy. Luckily I remember the words of Malcolm X warning me, ‘the media will have you thanking your oppressors and blaming the oppressed…'” Light-hearted? Well I’m dressed as Spider-man dancing like a cross between Michael Jackson and Beyonce…

#Corbyn vs the Media and the Snakes #ge17 – A brief history of the Media Lying About Corbyn and the Infilltration of real Labour with ‘New’ Labour aka Tory-lite.

Okay… I wrote the following. I have a good grasp of political history but I don’t own a TV or read newspapers so please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. I reserve the right to delete the whole thing if it generates negativity.

_

As far as I can tell the media has been calling Corbyn a weak leader for years even though he’s a strong leader with alot of support, so that has become the public perception.

AND it’s extra confusing because he has the core values of ‘original’ Labour, socialism which is essentially sharing, but he does have conflict within his party from the people who came in with and since Tony Blair in the 90s. But Tony Blair basically had Tory values, and snuck them into ‘New’ Labour so the conflict is unfair.

And on top of that none of the parties have a consensus on Brexit. The Tories are the only party apart from UKIP that want 100 percent to get out so all the other parties are confused about what they’d do if they won. Because none of the other main parties are 100 percent in or out and if we did decide to stay in Europe we’ve been so rude and obnoxious they’d probably tell us to fuck off. Essentially Theresa May seems to have

called an election because the press has done a good job of making all the other parties look weak and have literally lied about Corbyn‘s lack of support.

 

He doesn’t have support in his own party because it got infiltrated by snakes and Thatcherites under Blair and New (fake) Labour. BUT he has loads of grassroots support from the actual public who turn up to his speeches and rallies and the thousands that joined Labour just to vote for him. So the lack of support is accurate in a way but he lacks support from people who supported the war criminal Tony Blair. BUT the weak leadership claim is a lie, it’s bullshit cos a weak leader would have run away from the snakes, the lying media, and the attacks on everything from his cheap suit (🤔) to his front garden (🤔) years ago.

 

On another level though I’m fully confused about this. On at least 3 levels.

1 – if they count the votes does it matter because most people are manipulated by The Sun to vote Murdoch’s way. Is your vote gonna make a difference among the millions of manipulated sheep?
2 – how much are the strings pulled behind the scenes early? Labour didn’t win for years until it was New Labour and Tony Blair was leader – and he pushed Thatcher’s Tory agenda.
3 – the illusion, on the most extreme side of the conspiracy theories – do they even count the votes at all or is it all a scam?
4 – on the personal integrity level – does voting make me complicit in a system I fundamentally disagree with to be governed by laws that are amoral and unfair? Or is not voting asking for it. Either way it feels like I’m saying “go ahead walk all over me”. Basically I think the whole system has to change on such a fundamental level that the only practical way to do what I think needs to be done is start a new political party, AND a new religion, and stand for office based on principles of love and unity and say the sort of things that will either get me killed or sectioned. Just voting might not be enough for me.

BUT Tory austerity is killing people.
If all of us vote and nothing changes, then we know for sure. Then we can consider a revolutionary change of tactics.

 

Basically beyond voting I think the best thing you can do for the planet is move somewhere your taxes do not support austerity and war and live a life more sustainably as an example of a positive alternative, I dunno, maybe grow some olive trees and agave trees and collect spring water.

 

Okay, I haven’t ranted like this for months. Partly because I have a job now but i’m on half term. Partly because an election was declared and that always takes me out of enjoying the now and into indulging in the story.
I will continue to educate from my perspective but you vote for who you want, I don’t want to know what you’re doing. And it’s far too sunny to argue on Facebook.
At the end of the day it’s still be the change. If I stay in this country I’ll either have to start a new political party or a new religion so I can stop paying taxes into a system that robs from the poor to give to the rich (austerity and NHS destruction) and spends those taxes on bombing brown children for oil and gas (we shouldn’t still be using) while refusing to allow refugees from the countries we’ve destabilised for oil and gas.
But I’m not currently earning enough to leave realistically. So I’ll stop telling people what to do while I work out how to be the change I want to see.
Rather than bitching and spreading my frustration it may be more beneficial to simply express the truth as I see it and remind you – it’s sunny outside xxx

An Orange on an Apple Tree

Ever feel like an orange on an apple tree? But then you meet a pear on the apple tree and they’re not the same but they know how it feels to be different? Then you meet a satsuma and they’re a bit more like you but still not the same. Then even the apples start congratulating you for articulating the fact that you feel like a weirdo. But none of them knows how it feels to be you, to feel isolated.
But then you look again and it’s not even an apple tree, none of these fruits are apples. They’re all unique fruits. But then, even though you were brave enough to say “I’m not an apple” you were never quite brave enough to say “and this isn’t a fuckin apple tree”.

On an emotional level I’m not best suited to function in modern western society, for a start I care about other people. But nobody is, capitalism fosters stress and depression across the board, the people who function best in it are emotionally neutered. Whether or not I would function better in a time when poets were respected as bards, or in a country that supports it’s arts and artists is another question. I’m coping better now than ever. But that’s partly because I realise that I don’t have to hate myself for not fitting into boxes. Cos I’m not a robot that fits the boxes the system designed for me, I’m an individual and the system is not the perfect economic or political system it pretends to be. I’m not an apple and this is not even an apple tree.

It’s been a while since I was ranting on facebook at half one in the morning, I sleep better with a job and a girlfriend but I’m ill so I’m being emotional / creative at half one in the morning again. Don’t act like you don’t love it ya plums, satsumas and pears, I know you do.

My yearly ‘Tax Return Rant’, Living with Toothache, Online Privacy and other recent rants and lyrics!

Tax return. I just did it.

Yeah, it was as accurate as I could make it, but there were estimations. Why? Cos I’m a poet, not an accountant, I hate paperwork and I hate maths so being forced to do both let alone either by a government that spends my taxes on illegal wars upsets me.

Almost tempted to turn down paying gigs from now on so I never have to do another tax return ever. I hate having to estimate how much money I lost trying to change the world in an effort to tell the people I never gave any authority to how much of my money they can spend on schools (yes), hospitals (yes), roads (yes), and bombing brown people for oil.

Still, if I stop performing for money and only earn from the Steiner school I’ll still be getting taxed by the same system. So I’ll still accept paying gigs and I’ll still do tax returns, this is the (fucked up) system I am in. I had a chance to completely escape before but I ironically didn’t have the finances to do it safely and comfortably. One day I will live self sufficient and rely on the pedos in parliament for nothing.

I nearly became a politician last year. Nearly. Still thinking about starting a religion though…

think there’s already a love party in London. I would start a religion and start a political party based on love, community and altruism / benefit for all. Rather than the current economic systems based on competition and ownership rather than sharing. Electoral reform is a must here though, for proportional representation. But all of it’s pointless until enough people are educated in the nature of politics to see why we should change and until enough people are educated in the hierarchical nature of both the culture around science and the culture around religion. Science as a method is fine, but plenty of people use the scientific method to disprove long-held theories and lose their respect, job or tenure because they’ve rattled the cage. Oh my God I could write about why I want to start a political party and why I want to start a religion all Sunday, but I won’t until I actually feel like doing either of those things, this stops now! lol

We weren’t harsh, we were gullible pawns of Rupert Murdochs media. The Sun said we can’t elect a man who can’t eat a bacon sandwich and the average person seems to do what The Sun says we should do. The tone of this post does not reflect my anger, frustration or sadness. Humans – do better.

Ps that was back when the choice was between Milliband and Cameron. So bedroom tax, the selling of the NHS and all sorts of fuckry might have been avoided if the Sun hadn’t put that embarrassing photo on the front page the day before the election. People are more easily manipulated than we want to admit, myself included.


Toothache – Loving Life (Despite Intense Physical Pain)

Seriously? Did I really need toothache, abscess and swollen face to show me how happy I was just before? Is that lesson? Don’t worry, I learned the other lesson – don’t eat Haribo (yeah, mother f- you said that in 2007, you an addict.) Gelatine. Sugar. It was never gonna have a happy ending.

Remember when penny sweets were actually sweets a penny each? I still associate that evil stuff with a happy childhood. Ramblings of a poet in self inflicted physical pain, don’t mind me.

Just watched comedian Tracy Morgan talk about his accident and how when you’re in crisis you see who will ride for you. My new friends are true friends, I picked well and the universe through me some good ones on a random too. I’m still grateful, and still happy.

But, before the swings n roundabouts, it’s worth mentioning that last weekend I was happy as I can remember for a very long time. Things have been going well, thankyou universe and thankyou Bristol.

New job, old city, new meditation sessions, poetry workshops, gigs at wholefood shops, positive vibes and cuddles aplenty. Toothache is just a minor chord in a major melody, and I’m writing the score.

More superfoods, more writing, more money, more good health, more self discipline, more loving xx

Lyrics

Sometimes I still use pen and paper… #lyrics

Young man – talk to older women if you want to learn
what to say to girls your age in your world

Wise women prefer good conversation,
(But probably won’t say no to diamonds or pearls.)

The Holy Grail to me was a job that doesn’t depress me.
Pays for the rent… but does’t over-stress me

or was it a Goddess as wise as she’s sexy
to love me, hug me and bless me, and vice versa, Thank you and Yes please!

The Holy Grail was to have both fun and prosperity
Some dreams come true, may I stay healthy n get more wealthy,

not to get on Instagram to take the arrogant selfies
but to help people like when I had nothing good people helped me.

Every little cell in my body is happy and well see
Each cell glowing with love, deep rooted like Elm trees,

Showered in love from the cosmos above us,
To shine light on road for man dem, gal dem, sisters and brothers.

(ps The Holy Grail is still the Moon Cup.)

Free-Man 

So all that Free-Man stuff, Article 61 of the Magna Carta and the maritime law stuff… Is any of that affected by the fact that the Chilcott Enquiry came to the conclusion that our previous Prime Minister Tony Blair dragged us into a war under false pretenses? Can we conscientiously object to our taxes being spent on illegal wars and point to the Chilcott Enquiry as evidence that our politicians can’t be trusted? Just curious…

…that’s a big if though. But to be honest ‘they’ can usually intimidate me until I stop seeing ‘them’ as ‘they’…

…I was a conscientious objector to Western Imperialism but that didn’t stop the tanks from rolling…

“Everything is complete. There are no loose ends of excess or deficit. This completeness, this simple perfection, doesn’t mean that everything is all stitched up according to some master plan. {Though it might.} Rather, it is in the completeness of infinity, in which each moment is infinite. However things are, they will reveal their completion when we cease striving to create something, control something, become something, and simply allow the presence of ourselves within the becoming of the world. This is the essential view of dzogchen, a buddhist approach to spiritual practice and to daily life which is concerned with maintaining a sense of relaxed openness and happy attentive interest. ”
