In Billingham asthmatics  used to cry

I never knew what winking really meant
Especially if from someone soon to die.
Everyone said my husband was a gent

We  never spent a hot week in a tent
But on the shore we loved to read and lie.
I never knew what winking really meant

He used to pray but seldom during Lent
He did not like the eye of God to pry
Everyone said my husband was a gent

When we met he said I was a saint
But little did he know that I’m a spy
I never knew what blinking really meant

In his arms, I felt I’d  like to faint
But I cannot faint  near ICI
All agree my husband was a gent

 

His dad was ICI’s astonishment
In Billingham asthmatics  used to cry
I never knew before what stinking  meant

If he died no-one could pay the rent
So mother used to keep him nice and dry
All agree  my husband really spent

If he had to die then so do I
But I have other fish I long to fry
I never knew what winking really meant.
But does it matter since he was a gent?

As they float across the sky in silent bliss

 P1000380

I would I were a cloud in the blue sky
And that you too were transmuted in this way.
So as we windblown clouds passed by

 I could mix with you ,a merry mist at play.

For clouds have fuzzy boundaries at best
They have no minds nor fears, nor guilt nor sin.
Oh,feel they are internally at rest.
As they have no heart nor torment, no within.
Identity is not their need not wish
As they float across the sky in silent bliss
…Unlike the sea, the sky contains no fish..
Yet on this world clouds love to have a piss

Oh,blend with me and be my other soul;

For we two clouds can now become one whole

Luther’s anti Semitic legacy

http://www.momentmag.com/martin-luthers-anti-semitic-legacy-500-years-later/

 

Quote

The 500th anniversary, which numerous conferences, museum exhibits and special events and publications are commemorating throughout 2017, has a much darker significance for Jews. While Martin Luther initially had a relatively positive relationship with German Jews, he eventually adopted vociferously anti-Jewish rhetoric and promoted violence against Jews. His views helped shape centuries of anti-Semitic attitudes in Western Europe, and the Nazis later used his writing to stir up anti-Jewish sentiment.

Wear some leaves like Eve and   break the glass.

Now dress is to be gender free at last
And fluidly the boundaries shall run
Wear some leaves like Eve and  smoke the grass

Watch the  legs of maidens as they pass
Eating apples,having lots of fun
Now dress is to be gender free at last

Every rule  is broken and debased
The police are armed and we can smell the guns
Wear some leaves like Eve and  smoke the grass

Let the memory of our loves be not erased
As rapidly the rules melt with sense none
So dress is to be gender free at last

Let not our heart’s love be torn, defaced
Let us live with humour and wisdom
Wear some leaves like Eve and  mow the grass

 

Is our Big Society a con?
Clothes are not important to the Sun
Now dress is to be gender free at last
Wear some leaves like Eve and   break the glass.

The stone

Ah,did you throw away the ripened fruit
Because inside it hid a hardened stone?
As anything not total does not suit
Love’s ambivalence seems to you a crime.

Don’t throw away my love when I offend
For I am human too and lose my sense
As tension makes it difficult to bend
And sometimes even love is too intense.

Rather , see how much love there still may be
And balance that against my human faults
Instead , one mark ,one sin one thought unfree
Weighs more than years of love ,binds me in guilt.

As panic will grow less when we can wait
In such a way , our love can outweigh  hate
