Submersion

The island of Ireland may sink beneath the waves submerging our patriot graves.

Anything may or may not happen, the future is unpredictable.

That is uncontradictable.

Atlantis, did it ever exist?

Is it missed?

Some believe in flying saucers, sorcerers and Harry Potter.

That is as maybe, I am not responsible for the beliefs of others.

Until now we all had mothers.

In a possible future scientists will make babies and cure rabies.

Dream on baby, long live your dream.

Meanwhile politicians scheme.

Cheer up, it could be worse in an alternative universe.

The big bang could go into reverse.

The universe be compressed into the size of a tiny pea, including you and me.

Maybe then it will start again and get it right this time.

We have the future to look forward to, I hope for the sublime.

Some other time.

Dead Friend Part One

Dear dead friend you’ve met your end.

Possibly you were more an acquaintance than a friend, let that be.

We worked together, you and me.

You had a massive chip on your shoulder, someone said you haven’t now.

I remember anyhow.

You held extremist views and had a sense of humour, all smiles.

So had Idi Amin who threw people to crocodiles.

The views you gave expression to verged on the fanatic.

When someone said you had not grown old you said there’s a rotting painting of you in an attic.

You did not live to see America’s downfall.

Which you wished for, I could go on all day, that’s all.

Mistake

It’s a mistake not to check if you made a mistake.

Avoid heartbreak.

You might marry the wrong girl, buy the wrong house, starve your pet mouse.

I was born in Eire which sounds like error.

I still live there, once there was terror.

Things have settled down now, mediocrity reigns supreme.

I won the lotto in my dream.

I can afford ice cream.

I am a member of a consortium which might have won.

I still don’t know, I’ll ask Joe, money, I expect none.

Was buying a ticket a good idea, that remains to be seen.

Ireland is green.

Reason

There’s a reason for everything except human behaviour.

I am not your saviour.

Have you heard irrational simplistic explanations?

They cause wars between nations.

Simplistic means over simplified.

A man told the truth and died.

Complication and confusion are sown by those who put themselves first.

Politicians are the worst.

Of course you hear the same in any bar.

You don’t need to go far.

Haters shout.

Leave me out.

Reason is what its all about.

Sane man in a madhouse, speak out.

Don’t leave love out.

Lungs

I think I smoke more when I’m out, I’m not sure that is right.

I haven’t got the statistics to hand, I’ll check tonight.

I had my lungs checked not long ago, they’re still there, the medic told me so.

I don’t recommend you copy me.

Health professionals agree.

Smoking has the appearance of a harmless pleasure.

It reduces treasure.

It pollutes the atmosphere, the room and me, still I persist.

Addictions are hard to resist.

The establishment are addicted to the status quo.

That I know.

Clean air or confusion and illusion?

Addicts suffer from delusion.

Outrageous

The more outrageous a thing is the more it sells.

Hell’s bells.

Simple, gentle do not count.

Not a large amount.

What price the Sermon on the Mount?

Which see, qv.

Christianity seems like a good idea, pity they don’t do it Ghandi said.

He was shot dead.

He believed in peace, so do I.

And freedom, mom and apple pie.

Engage

Engage brain before opening mouth said the sign.

I did.

I was a kid.

Do a person’s thinking for them and they love you, make them think and they hate you.

I wish to impart information without being jocose.

At the same time I am not morose.

To say more would be verbose.

Ask one who already knows.

The king wears no clothes.

The truth stands naked, must I explain?

If so you give me a pain.

A pain in the proverbial, let that pass.

Alright in the ass.
