Poetry – Invisible Strings

Invisible Strings

There are invisible strings

                Dangling from the sky,

Attached to various bigwigs

                With their fingers in the pie.

They dangle cash, promises –

                A trip through the revolving door.

Engineer to supply the Cayman Isles

                With money from the poor.

There’s a club of billionaires

                Whose money oils the wheels

Leaving all the poorest

                Without the means to pay their bills.

There’s an interlocking web

                To conserve the hierarchy

Using bribes, threats, war and intrigue

                To cover up their old marlarkey.

There are invisible strings

                Dangling from the sky,

Attached to various bigwigs

                With their fingers in the pie.

QAnon is completely bonkers but that controlling elite is real. They control the system through bribes, threats and lobbying so that they get much more than their share.

They have no morality.

They do not care what damage they cause.

The world is being run for the benefit of a tiny minority. The politicians are bought and sold.

The system is a game. The planet is a pawn.

The likes of Trump, Johnson, Modi, Oban and Johnson are not the answers. They are part of the problem!

Poetry – The Eclipse of Reason

The Eclipse of Reason

Drinking babies’ blood at the Capitol

In a Democrat paedophile ring.

Trafficking kids through pizza parlour

Won’t stop for anything!

They’re headed up by alien lizards

Who feed on baby flesh.

Order it up from the pizza place

Like we order through Hello Fresh!

George Soros is the puppet master

And Clinton’s the witch.

Trump is our only saviour

He’s gonna crucify the bitch!

There’s a big storm coming

In the war of good and bad.

Wanna make us consumer zombies

We’re fighting back! We’re mad!

They say we’re all idiots

Storming the Capitol was treason!

We say the world is flat!

This is the eclipse of reason!!

QAnon now obsesses 15% of republicans! Can you believe that??

We are being thrown back into the Dark Ages by insane conspiracy theories. Superstition mixed with ignorance and stupidity rules.

Millions of Americans really do believe that the earth is flat, that the UN is bad, that we never landed on the moon, and that the earth is only three thousand years old and Trump will solve it all!

Incredible!!

We live in a world that is increasingly putting the power and wealth into the hands of a tiny elite of multibillionaires.

These billionaires only care about themselves, their wealth, their power and their profits. They are causing mass poverty and global destruction.

They are controlling us!

It appears that the answer to this problem, the ordinary people think, is to believe in alien lizards and baby eating cabals and elect one of the billionaire elite into power.

It is truly the eclipse of all reason. People have gone mad. They’d rather believe in conspiracy and elect an orange conman lizard!!

Poetry – QAnon

QAnon

I’m in love with QAnon

Fighting the lizard kings.

Seeking out the commies

Who run the paedophile rings.

I love my guns

My right to kill

Exercising

God’s will.

Under the constitution

I am free.

No government

Is gonna tax me.

I’m a QAnon believer

I know the world is flat.

The government’s my enemy.

I want my coup d’etat.

He may be a billionaire

Chubby chump

But I’ll put my faith

In President Trump.

He don’t hold with global warming

He’ll sort that old trade gap

Resurrect the oil industry –

No commie claptrap.

He says he’ll drain the swamp.

End these years of pain.

Build us a wall.

Make America great again!

I believe in the superiority

Of the white man.

God and my country.

I’ll give it all I can.

I’m a QAnon believer.

The UN’s a commie plot.

Trump’s our saviour

I’ll give him all I’ve got!

Somehow all these conspiracies come together in some absolutely crazy scenarios.

We all are cynical about self-serving politicians, supposed experts and the media and the populists have milked that to their own advantage.

The irony is that nobody is more self-serving than Trump, Bolsonaro and Johnson. They love conspiracy and help spread it.

QAnon has gathered all these absurd conspiracies together, pasted it tight with racism and elected Trump as their saviour.

It’s a weird conglomeration of religion, myth and absurdity, denial and fear.

Alien lizards, flat earth, paedophile rings, Satanists, Covid, vaccination, inequality, space ships, the UN, socialism, moon landings, holocaust, control, Muslims, immigrants and racism are all brought together in an insane Science Fiction conspiracy.

Can anyone imagine a more unlikely saviour that the philandering, misogynistic, racist, conniving billionaire?

You have to wonder how sane people come to believe this crap.

Idiot Wind – Bob Dylan – for Marjorie Taylor Greene

I dedicate this to all the imbecilic QAnon believers.

Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth
Blowing down the backroads headin’ south
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth
You’re an idiot, babe
It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe

You hurt the ones that I love best and cover up the truth with lies
One day you’ll be in the ditch, flies buzzin’ around your eyes
Blood on your saddle

What’s good is bad, what’s bad is good, you’ll find out when you reach the top
You’re on the bottom

I noticed at the ceremony, your corrupt ways had finally made you blind

And they just can’t remember how to act
Their minds are filled with big ideas
Images and distorted facts

The Republican Party’s Existential Choice

There is a stark choice for the Republican Party:

a. Do they go with the Trumpists, QAnon, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, fake news and conspiracy

b. Do they go back to traditional conservative values.

There is the Marjorie Taylor Greene version – believe the QAnon conspiracy – the Democrats are all Satan worshipping paedophiles who eat babies, storm the Capitol and shoot Nancy Pelosi in the Head.

Or Liz Cheney and small government, low taxes and conservative values.

It seems to me that there is going to be a battle for the heart and soul of the party.

Personally I think Greene is an ignorant imbecile who is a danger to democracy and Cheney is just simply wrong.

What is needed is a more equal society, progressive taxes and far better public services – particularly education. If education was better we would not have so many deluded Americans ready to believe the earth is flat.

Free Speech – One Each!!

Would you feel alright about a foreign power, such as Russia or China, pouring out propaganda to deliberately affect an election?

Would you be happy with a political party deliberately putting out misinformation or lies that were masquerading as truth?

Would you be happy with conspiracy theories being put out on the media and social platforms and being represented as truth?

Would you be happy with terrorist groups (white supremacists, jihadists, neo-nazis, anarchists etc.) pumping out false information and propaganda via the internet?

That is what is currently happening.

There are TV channels that are deliberately putting out misinformation and extremely biased information disguised as news.

Social media has been targeted by political parties as a means of putting out conspiracy and fake news.

Trump has been the master of fake news and conspiracy theories. He has deliberately undermined science, experts and the media while promoting and encouraging conspiracy theories.

Not only do a high percentage of his followers believe the election was stolen, they also believe that the corona virus was a hoax, QAnon is a good source of truthful information, the Deep State is controlling everything and alien lizards are running the planet. They believe democrats hold satanic rituals and drink babies blood. They believe PC is simply wrong and many of them believe the earth is not only flat but was only created 3000 years ago.

All this is defended in the name of free speech.

That opens a lot of questions.

I believe anybody should be able to discuss anything from the holocaust to Jesus, from Hitler to Pol Pot, without censure. They should be free to express their views and be challenged.

But I do not believe that anybody has the right to pump out deliberately false conspiracy as fact and that sites or news channels that deliberately try to lie and spread fake news should be shut down.

It’s a view. What do you think??
