Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

The madhouse’ magic whore


The madhouse’ magic whore
Spellbind’s us in all her statue astute
Nakedness

The green girdled snakes rise
Hissing smiling teeth
The python’s loving kindly grip

The blue, dark blue night its
Hidden charms alarms
At suggested sinister sounds

That once snow white sheep
Bound now for its life’s end
To mutton up our plate

The sword edge of history
Blunts, scabrous venemous
Spear thrusts, guillotines
Counts wars of peace

The scream, the endless scream
We see the grimace mask
We hear not the pain

Our automaton existence
Us millions locked in step
Eyes sewn shut march singing
Over the cliff

The sleep, oh yes, the sleep of babes
Those pink cheeks laugh, chuckle with health
What will they find
When they awake

The soul’s tombstone years


The soul’s tombstone years
Imprisoned the graveyard within
An open coffin lying in
Out of which you could not
Rise
While all around you, outside you
Life’s relentless lurid living
Went silently on
Out of reach

The flood broke


The flood broke
Gradually
An inundation
Day after day
Flood waters which
Did not subside
For months, two years, on end
And yet all the while
Learning to swim

To those of you who have adopted to follow my presence on Artfinder a note of thanks


To those of you who have adopted to follow my presence on Artfinder a note of thanks.

This seems to me to be an appropriate medium to express my thanks to you. You come from a wide variety of countries and your presence has me feel that I am part of a wider community of artists.

The response to my work so recently mounted and still going up on Artfinder, is encouraging.

Those of  you who are followers of this blog who are reading this will have noticed that my graphic art work has in recent times been noted as being available at Saatchi Art and or Artfinder. Hence this post.

Again thank you.

To Visitors and Followers of Towards a Better Democracy: an appreciation


To Visitors and Followers of Towards a Better Democracy: an appreciation

At frequent intervals I reach out to those of you who visit the site and those of you who have generously adopted to follow the blog to tell you how much I appreciate you.

To share has meaning to me. It is simply part of my nature and that I have this blog and that you visit and follow it allows me to share with you my interests and predilitions.

I seldom comment since I think the site and its content speaks for itself. But I will take this opportunity to note with satisfaction as I reach through the tiny corners of the content of Youtube to discover new music the extent of the interest in this music.

To be part of such a community is quite something. And to be one of those creating it …

I do not pander to popular taste. That there are others who share my interests is gratifying. After all,  one does live on one’s own in this world. And spouses and friends can hardly be expected to like or admire what we do.

Thank you.
