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.

The Question

My best friend Michael O’Brien said I will be famous after I’m dead.

He died first, instead.

Do I want fame for myself, no.

The truth comes dropping slow.

I want what everyone wants but hardly dares to expect.

World peace, an end to war and argument as you might suspect.

I write my words, they say the same.

Allow children play a game.

Maybe Michael’s right, may my words be true.

I want a perfect world for you.

How about me too?

A perfect world requires perfected people, they are rare.

The burning question, do you care?

Sinn Fein

Sinn Fein revealed for the sectarian murderers they are.

When will they find their guiding star?

Whatever happened to live and let live, to love means to give.

As for the Unionists why don’t you learn Scots Gaelic, its more or less the same.

Why play the hate game?

We’re all the same.

I’d like a borderless world, the Earth has none.

May we smile under the Sun.

Must I make it absolutely clear, borders are man made, creating fear.

Lets have no borders here.

Maybe next year.

When will tomorrow come, never, people say.

The IRA have not gone away.

Allow the children play.

That’s all I have to say.

Forever and a day.

A child waves at everyone passing by, even me.

They see.

When will truth be?

A child believes in friendliness, do not betray their trust.

We are made from the same dust.

Okay, Sinn Fein, you had your say.

Help make hate go away.

I have not joined the haters.

I am one of the waiters.

I don’t mean in a hotel.

What the Hell!
