Eyeless in Gaza...Once again!

Eyeless in Gaza,
The deaf look on
With the blank glaze
Of diplomatic deceit.

A murderous storm passes over
and shakes the homes of Gaza,
The child huddles in the corner,
Hiccups of fear at every thud of a mortar, every incendiary flash
Every rocket tearing into the heart of the city.

Eyeless in Gaza,
The deaf look on
With the blank glaze
Of diplomatic deceit

Our concerned leaders are making
Herculean efforts,
The Blairs, the Sarkozys, the Condoleezza Rices;
We are so near to a solution….
But there remains so much to be done.

Eyeless in Gaza,
The deaf look on
With the blank glaze
Of diplomatic deceit.

There remains so much to be done
LIAR BLAIR!
The child no longer huddles in the corner,
She is dripping blood and flesh running off the walls
Of the ruins of Gaza City

Eyeless in Gaza,
The deaf look on
With the blank glaze
Of diplomatic deceit.

We are so near to a solution….
LIAR SARKOZY!
The child no longer huddles in the corner,
She is the charred cinders rising into the sky
Over Gaza City.

Eyeless in Gaza,
The deaf look on
With the blank glaze
Of diplomatic deceit.

We are in the final phases of an agreement,
LIAR CONDOLEEZZA RICE!
The child no longer huddles in the corner,
She is a heap of mangled remains
In the morgues of Gaza City.

Eyeless in Gaza,
The deaf look on
With the blank glaze
Of diplomatic deceit.

The vengeful Samson stands once again
Over the smouldering ruins of Gaza City.
Eyeless, deaf and dumb,
Together with our concerned leaders
We have reached our solution!

A Xmas Wish

A poverty stricken, barefoot boy in a Third World slum was asked what his Xmas wish would be.
“I wish I was George W. Bush.” He replied.
“Is that because you want to be the most powerful person in the whole wide world?” retorted the interviewer.
“No,” replied the boy, looking down at his naked and scarred feet,
“It’s just that somebody might hopefully throw a pair of shoes at me!”

The Ghost of Xmas Past


Well now we’re finished with the idiotic revelling in consumerist overindulgence, based on the thin excuse of the birthday of an, as it were, man god, who had he ever existed as a real human being (basically no valid historical evidence for this alas) was by all the biblical (you know that book written several thousand years ago to convince a wandering Bronze age tribe in North Africa and Asia Minor that they were the top dogs/chosen people) references born in March.
Luckily for us Pope Julius 1, in the fourth century AD (400 years after a probably fictitious person) decided that the date would be 25 December. This was an attempt to reign in the pagans who insisted on the continued celebration of heathen religious festivals such as Saturnalia around the date of the mid winter solstice.

Religion is the worst thought system we humans have, it in no way represents knowledge. Atheism and religion are not two equal but different philosophies of life meriting equal respect.

The former stands for the removal of superstition allowing one to remain with a foundation of valid knowledge to build ones understanding on, the latter stands for obfuscation and the nurturing of ignorance.
