Madmen

Why are madmen taken seriously in this country of ours?

How very tolerant, are weeds flowers?

How about the past and intimidation now?

Have the gunmen hung up their guns anyhow?

Should men who shot people in the back be given the sack?

They want to stand you up against the wall, walk tall.

They are destroyers, they never make, blackmail is their thing.

The men who would be king.

Agreeable Me

I tend to agree with what people say, agreeable, that’s me.

Except whey they talk tripe, some fruit is overripe.

You need to hear both sides of the case, a real judge does, wash your face.

Am I all right and you’re all wrong, is that your song?

I hear you on radio and TV, you are disagreeable, you see.

I wish you wouldn’t all talk at the same time.

I recommend one microphone at a time.

The angry are so sure and certain.

Can both sides be right, bring down the curtain.

Judgement

Ought we judge from the perspective of our time or all time or at all?

What is your judgement on that question, a large question or, as you might say, small.

Is it better to have no judgement even whether your coffee is hot?

You may say that’s different, I do not.

A meal or a movie, can they be good or bad?

Is there a difference between sane and mad?

Or love and hate, but wait.

Do you believe in effect, do you believe in cause?

Do you believe in the law of gravity or in any laws?

That’s different, again you say.

So you make your judgement, good day.

Judgement exists in principle or not.

I thought I’d say that, I nearly forgot.

Who says nothing is good or bad, wake up from your sleep, give me a rest.

What is the purpose of a test?

To find what works best.

With judgement a bird builds a nest.

Argument

Can you listen to the Devil and demolish his argument?

Do you believe a lie is Heaven-sent, your chance to prove the true, at last the real you?

If so I shall attend your disputation.

If not, I avoid without hesitation.

Argument does not necessarily mean a row.

A student should know that, anyhow.

When all are white collar who will drive the plough?

Posh Boy

A posh boy suffering from middle class guilt became a raving red.

He said people should do this instead.

Venezuela here we come, see what happens under their thumb.

Are you sure your answer is not over simplified, why not leave well enough alone, can you cure a man who died?

If things get worse when you’re in charge will you say shut up and eat your bun, a gunman is at large?

I’m sorry for you and your delusions, who screams the loudest, who sows confusions?

I well know things are bad and pretty bad at that.

Is Kim Jong-un a fat cat?

Maybe we should do what Castro did and let no one out.

Is that your secret plan, you who shout?

When the rich repent their sins, love begins.

Who does not want money, more and more?

There is a beggar at your door.

Hitler said he had it right, Stalin too.

Who says you should run the zoo?

You do.

Who has a vested interest in the status quo?

The vested interests, now you know.

We don’t need to change the electoral system, we need to change the electorate.

When you do that I’ll place my bet.

The politics of greed and envy are not what we need.

A vote for you is suicide indeed.

You speak the truth when it suits you.

Beware, another politician might shoot you.

I prefer things don’t go from bad to worse.

Are you a blessing or a curse?

I would like a world without posh boys, do you agree?

Do you know better than me?

Read history, chairman Mao.

Did he know how?

Violence and lies are not the way, whatever you say.

I know people don’t disagree when a gun is pointed at them, ask the I.R.A.

Visit Venezuela, learn the truth.

Happy holiday.

You mean well.

Good intentions pave the way to Hell.

The poor should be housed, who won’t let them, their next door neighbour, is that you?

Who sold their soul for votes, which crew?

The ones who get elected, by who?

Why don’t people change, because they don’t want to, that’s why.

We are ruled largely by self interest, I tell no lie.

When that day changes let me know.

Until that day I say I told you so.

What you already know.

There’s none so blind as those who don’t want to see, they’re all around.

Guarding their penny or their pound.

I know some are not self interested, but they are few and far between.

Look around, see what I mean.

I too can dream.

Autobiography

If I write my life story will it be biased, self serving and subjective?

I ask you the same, can you be objective?

About yourself of course, or would you want to be?

Are you self obsessed, like me?

If so, why would anyone want to know?

Am I a show off ever showing?

Am I a person worth knowing?

Is your opinion of yourself widely shared, I might ask myself the same if I cared.

Is your self esteem high or low?

I sincerely want to know.

About myself I don’t give a damn.

I think therefore I am.

That’s second hand, so what?

That’s your lot.

News Torture

The news is like Chinese water torture, drip drip of lies murder and slaughter.

Tears from a daughter.

War of words of misery.

I’ll have a cup of tea.
