Impercebtible the reversing sail-wind-marina men life-bouys
hopless as the storm whisp spun
thread-twisting tousling blockage, ideas the rope hung us on,
trussed up trolls, a spark of life itself plots for prince or gold,
one queen goddess ascending
memorized in fixed proof invisibly written, bi-polar Jon Wild,
a hundred seconds of sweat, twenty more bombers looped-out,
tubular i-pod ludicrously blowing the mind, a great title
the only rule in fictional truth, antediluvian geneologies’
and line-edge Claymore answerers – sparthaxe, saffron, kern, hip
bowl-tonsure red-black, fair and squarely cut, focail bána,
moire accent, first the word a final night, Chuchulain
dead, a mortal god whirr laughing fictional heffers
lowing on a rag, rented sacred nemetons in druidic blue
trawl through, slim sheaf of fully realised things –
forever a day and night together in the eternal life
it lives where blackbirds flock and Ollamhs sing a book,
satchel and chalk pat caress the vellum, Tir na Og
behind a copyist’s mind, hiding clues, a cipher for ..d’yer
know who it is yet? – the most empathetic on-air person,
in sonic kooky mooing, being tough in noughties Dublin, before the bubble burst?
I love ‘hardcore capitalist thug-strata, SoTo: it conjurs up a portrait so telling and true, of the fed-aiders consumed by a top few percent who share the lot.
Maurading facist-commie scum, trash of all hue and cry for bigger Government. The parasites and degenerate misfits, spare unworking freeloaders bleeding from the body of honest Capitalism top down, bottom up – everything we got.
The kickback, taxes, tithes, percentage and easing of walkabout money, the qualitative accounting, derivative shakedown, payout, fáilte, welcome billions extra printed freebies we gotta have because they’re ours …mmm, yummy money, it’s all we need. Damn straight capitalism it’s sleight of hand-over the eight, mirror manouevring eyes to sky-wide open and too confusing for losers.
I want your money.
Give it to me.
Make me calm.
You saw the hand.
You know the face.
You speak the name.
You make it come
Dosh, wonger, wedge
Hand it over
Give it to me.
Serve up the loot.
Take me to your ruler.
Give me all you’ve got.
