The possibilities are endless, y’know….

Ffolkes,

“If a little knowledge is dangerous,
where is the man who has so much as to be out of danger?”

~~ Thomas Henry Huxley ~~

Battling for sunlight….

Hajime…. Bah! Humbug!

I would guess, given my opening statement, the season has finally gotten past my defensive shields. It may also be a clue to note, my first coherent thought today upon awakening had to do with homicide, which leads me to some understanding of the need to parrot Scrooge. I feel dangerous, and, not to myself; I’d say the world of mundanes should probably be alerted, but, they wouldn’t listen, & might very well send me some sacrificial lambs in a futile attempt to assert some sort of fictional control over me. That’s okay by me; I haven’t killed anyone in years, & the practice might be useful. Hmm…. I guess I should make sure the abbatoir is ready, and the disposal pit has been prepared….

Now, most of the times I wake up in this state, (still more frequently than I’d prefer…), the act of voicing my inner wish to maim and destroy will generally take the greater part of the pressure off; in this way, it acts much like a steaming pot, where lifting the lid will allow a lot of heat to escape. So far, today, that’s not happening. In fact, I’m feeling more homicidal, and less in control, the longer I’m up. It’s probably just a delayed reaction to all the Christmas muzak we are all subjected to this season, which means there are only six more days to get through until it’s done for another year…. I’ve gotta say, the commercial crap we must endure is just wrong, and I don’t understand how people can so thoroughly deny reality….. but, then, I guess I’ve always felt that particular puzzlement.

At this point in my narrative, I feel I must assume some sort of control, if only to the extent needed to move us along where we’re supposed to be going. If I continue in this vein, we’ll end up ranting, which, at this point, and, given the seasonal fog of smarm so prevalent amongst the unwashed masses, could easily turn on me, & become an agenda for action; that wouldn’t be a good thing, mostly. Oh, sure, I’d feel better, but, what about the families of those idiots I’d have wasted? No, best to just join the rest of humanity, in the world of make-believe, just as if I didn’t want to ace the first fool to display their idiocy in front of me….. In short, I’ll be staying home today, seeking to find reasons to keep myself from rationalizing, a sure road to perdition.

Well, since it isn’t working the way it’s designed, I guess I’ll wing it from here. Don’t fret; I’m accustomed to wrestling with my demons, & haven’t actually killed anyone in recent memory…. and, my memory’s pretty good. So, I’ll just sit here, twiddling my mental thumbs, and stay out of jail. As for the rest of y’all, I’d suggest finishing the Pearl we’ve begun, then getting on with whatever you had planned for today. To dwell upon the issues we’ve explored thus far would be detrimental to all our future endeavors, so, best to simply file this one under, “Oh, well…”, and be done with it. The Pearl, I can say, isn’t too shabby, & should distract y’all sufficiently to help; if naught else, it’s good music, and fun for all in the final section…. Now, lets’ do this….

Shall we Pearl?

Comedy_Tragedy

For a reason all-too-well-known to me, I’m not in a good mood this morning. For some other reason, this poem seems to fit my mood, so, here ’tis…. Can’t say I hope you enjoy it; such finer sentiments aren’t currently accessible just now. Try to do so anyway….

Augmentation: Inner Aye

Distant, peals of thunder, vividly.
Closer, a patter of rain, falling gravidly.
Between the light and the darkness of fear
find merely the remnants of one lonely tear.

Do not hate us, though we have not sinned;
eager for courage, upon whom all hope is pinned.
Tales of insolence, hatred, or fallen virtue
fill us up, not down, in such pristine foreign venue.

Capable hands severed, able hands tied;
the future is angry, all but now denied.
Multiple times, warnings sounded across the pale
nobody heard, nobody came to tell the tale.

Gifted by time, salience fails in epic rhyme;
watchmakers watching, each a separate crime.
Logical solutions refuse to emulsify
forever pretending to cruelly crucify.

Blood will fly alongside pertinent composure,
never seeking, never finding tea, or closure.
Falsely laid trails on mountains of gold
imply no happy endings, no fortunes told.

Ages past have no time for repetition;
further chances only lead to perdition.
Destiny feels a shameful portion of guilt,
for a thousand sand castles, never built.

In a very real sense, this one is a victory. It’s done, which means I did it, and, nobody died. All good, so far. To keep us on that path, I’ll set us all free…. until next time, of course. At that time, we’ll again set our critical sights on trying to make some sense out of a world gone bonkers. Until then, do like I intend to do, & try to refrain from giving in to your/our homicidal urges; trust me, it’s for the best. Provided I have some minor success at that, which will mean I’m not yet incarcerated, or dead, I will be back to do this again. Since about 80% of this is hyperbole, and/or, just plain BS, the odds are good…. See ya, ffolkes….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.

  1. Oh, FFS! Nailed it. Fresh batch of hemlock in the cauldron. Double plus for Flaubert, Jablokov, Aristotle and Gigs.

    In less than a week, the oppression will subside. May we all imbibe the unholies until we are free of the bonds of the intolerance. The rest we shall discuss au moment.

    Xxx

    • *grin* Good to know I can still swing the hammer…. I know, I know, it will pass; it’s just a pain waiting for time to get its ass in gear… I have to be careful imbibing the unholies this time of year. as they tend to liberate those homicidal urges…. Of course, I wouldn’t actually care if it did, but, the consequences in real-time make it pretty inconvenient, not to mention, time-consuming to clean up the mess…

      *wink* It doesn’t seem to keep me from imbibing altogether, though, so, cheers!…

      LOL! I recall what Socrates had to say about hemlock… “I drank WHAT?”…

      Keep the faith, sister…. keep it well buried, too…

  2. I try to put on a happy face but my other died on Xmas Day 1979 and the day means nothing but sorrow no matter how hard I try.

    My music today is Chopin……he keeps my mind on an even course….

    “All that self-expression has just created a generation of morons, hooked on an endless appetite for rubbish.” V. Westwood. Nailed it!

    It’s again worth
    noting that
    suicide
    rates
    increase
    with levels
    of standard IQ..
    not too impressed with
    standard IQ or crystalized
    intelligence as fluid intelligence
    can take one so much higher
    with emotional.. physical
    and existential
    intelligence
    and almost
    unlimited otHeR
    poTenTial hUman
    intelligences rarely
    tapped by a spoon fed
    culture based on making tools..
    and sure.. i suffered at the hand of
    what i am speaKing of noW in
    empirical measure too.. lost..:)

    SMiLes my FriEnd
    Rage was an enemy
    i once had great difficulty
    with too.. and a greatest
    problem with cultural
    whole is it both
    puts folkS iN
    insane
    work environments
    as well as little to no
    education on the art
    of listening to one’s
    body enough
    in places
    with
    enough space
    to regulate emotions
    and integrate senses as
    stress is cumulative and when
    severe and chronic almost always
    leads to stuff like chronic anxiety.. PTSD..
    Rage and destructive potential of all kinds..
    anyway.. best to write it out and express it of course
    and it helps for people to kNow/FeeL it’s not something that
    is in think alone.. lots of complex physiology.. neuro-hormones
    and neuro-chemicals in interplay of the rage to the love of life..
    again.. varies by mileage and style and make of vehicle and vessel
    as essence plays by many rules of cultural/innate complexity now for sure..:)
