THISTLES

A THISTLE grows next to a LETTUCE and a POPPY
Each takes from the soil what its roots need
To keep a lettuce



Quite different from a thistle and a poppy



And a thistle quite different from a lettuce and a poppy



 And a poppy quite different from a lettuce and a thistle.

ATLAS


 It is not Atlas
 who carries on his shoulders
 the world
 with all its teeming life forms,
 its cities and citizens
 its poets and fools.


 It is the breath of life
 which fans the vital heat
 each time it cools.

                             Watching the breath                                                             you enter into that empty space
                             between Life and Death.

YES


Every moment
is a fork in the road
and every fork
is always the same,
the choice between right and wrong.

HORACRUX

When you sell a part of yourself
to the Devil,
you receive
the powers your payment warrants.


          He takes
          part of yourself as a deposit.
          You receive
          part of Himself as a witness.


          Your part in Him
          is his hostage.


          His part in you
          is your power.
          From Him.

CATCHING UP
(Mr Moses and Mr Gates)


The more they take
     and do not make
 an adequate contribution,
 the more what they owe
 shadows them as they go
 to inevitable retribution.
 

    

(The more they know
  the more they owe.
     Is their Way In
     your Way Out?)

"LOVE THOU THE ROSE BUT LEAVE IT ON ITS STEM"


How odd that humans
choose to hide their sex
with clothes they have derived from plants
and so disguise them.



And yet they cut from plants their sex

(which they call flowers)
and stick them in rose bowls and vases,
put them on show
and highly prize them!

QUEEN MARY


She lays her head upon the block,
awaits the executioner's riposte.
The thin-spin life splits at the shock
and Scotland, England, France are lost.


    Empty phenomenon rolling on,
          Since there is no "me",
        there is no responsibility.





 

   But still the pain is real.

CHRISTMAS PRESENT 2017?


20,000 badgers killed in this year's cull


 Why? To “control the spread of bovine TB”.

“Culling is part of the government's 25-year strategy to eradicate the disease”, but opponents say there is no evidence it works.

Figures released by the government show a total of 19,274 badgers were shot or removed by cage trapping between 6 September and 28 October.

Seven and a half weeks?

The Badger Trust has called on the government to provide "conclusive evidence" that the cull was reducing levels of TB in cattle.

"The whole process is not just cruel and inhumane, it is completely indiscriminate."

Bovine TB affects cattle and other mammals including humans, badgers, deer, goats, pigs, dogs and cats. Why not cull cats, dogs or humans?

Tuberculosis (TB) in cattle is caused by aerobic bacterium, thrives in moist and warm soil and in cattle faeces. It is killed by sunlight.

SO IS IT CAUSED BY CONDITIONS CREATED BY FARMERS? What (or who) should be culled......

SHE LIKES ME


HUMANS are the only ANIMALS to like their FOOD HOT
HUMANS are the only ANIMALS to COOK other ANIMALS
HUMANS are the only ANIMALS who think it is ALRIGHT
to TORTURE and KILL other ANIMALS if they WANT to.

















PS The BIBLE wasn’t written by GOD
         It was written by JEWS

AS OF NOW CHRISTMAS NO LONGER EXISTS


 

 Except for

 ~ On the calendar,             equivalent of April         Fools’ Day

~ Frenzied marketing and buying (MONEY)


~ An increase in the animals and birds needlessly tortured and killed
~ An increase in drunkenness and self-indulgence

      And, oh YES


~ Self- indulgent role-playing in the temples of discredited pretend-religions




So, what are YOU doing this year?

END GAME

Wildebeest, antelope and gazelle
stand on the Plain of Serengeti
where they can see only too well
lying in the River Grumeti
the jungle eye and hungry smile
of the eternally waiting crocodile.

THE FOURTH STAGE


The Second Stage is, like the caterpillar's.  

Eating. Eating.
Physical and mental food.
To make the body healthy and strong
and the mind well-informed
and ready for

 

The Third Stage. Digestion.
With the body healthy and the mind fully fed
(no more experience or information needed),
so that the simple but profound Truth about everything
dawns in

 

The Fourth Stage. The tentacle AWAKES!

NO BRAINER


            A Man who identifies with 
  mind and body is wrong from the start. 

He spends his whole life 
munching away at fallen apples
from the Tree of Knowledge.


Until a wheelbarrow comes to cart
the body and mind away.
