Talking To Myself

Is that all I ever do?

Do I talk to you?

I who haven’t a clue.

So what else is new?

Must I talk to myself forever, give myself a good talking to?

Is that all any of us ever do?

Some enjoy what I have to say, others walk away.

Or look the other way.

Should I talk until the end of life, spread the word, let truth be heard, be as a surgeon’s knife?

I am no more important than you, what do I say, me too?

Enjoy the view.

And a picnic too.

That will do.

Jesus Christ

Me:  Did you see the guy in Australia who says he’s Jesus Christ?  He has a girlfriend he says is Mary Magdalen.  He said the last time I came you crucified me.  He is about thirty-three, rather good looking and charismatic.  He is clean shaven, they invented electric razors in the last two thousand years.  He has some followers, mostly middle aged, middle class rather well off American women.  Why they follow him I don’t know, he is rather good looking.  A Mills and Boon idea of religion.  Why do they show that stuff on television, as a sort of freak show?

Michael:  A freak show.

Me:  Are there just as many nuts in Australia as everywhere else?

Michael:  Just as many.

Appearance

The Sun appears to go around the Earth but that is not the case.

Do you believe your eyes, have you a pretty face?

I am a handsome poet or so some lady said.

She might like to be called that, she is not dead.

Your opinion may differ from others, mine does from my brother’s.

Do less obviously attractive girls get asked at a dance?

Do men deserve a kick in the pants?

Things are not as they seem.

Wake up from a dream.

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!

Still Voice

A still small voice said that is right the stronger voice said good night.

The still voice said do not shout the strong voice said I know what its all about.

The still voice said you use the word I if you do that we will die.

The strong voice said shut up you fool I was the bully at my school.

The still voice said you murder me the strong voice said I do it in the name of free.

The still voice said you fly a false flag a flag is after all a rag.

The strong voice said how dare you insult what is great I condemn you to your fate.

The still voice said you know you’re wrong the strong voice said get back in your box where you belong.

The strong voice said I rule the roost shut up still voice your goose is cooked.

The still voice said when will peace be the strong voice said I believe in me.

That’s the trouble don’t you see said the still voice silently.

Talk

‘Tis worse things are getting instead of better.

“That’s not true, did you read my letter?”

I threw it in the bin, unopened, along with the junk mail.

“Then you don’t know, a boat has a sail.”

Why do you speak obscurely, how can I make sense of what you say?

“If you try you will, have a nice day.”

What if I don’t bother, will you close the door?

“There you go again, asking for more.”

If I don’t clap will there be an encore?

“Wait and see what lies in store.”

What does this all mean?

“What is the meaning of a dream?”

Judges

Are the judges in Ireland also corrupt, are they on the make?

If it was their own daughter what stance would they take?

We all know they’re highly paid, they’ve got it made.

Why are their sentences so low and their awards so high?

Do they say to themselves there but for the grace of God go I?

It appears they back the system to the hilt.

How much would they fine Mr. Vanderbilt?

Or any other ordinary everyday millionaire.

The question is, do they care?
