Who Gives A `Fuck’ Anymore?


As with genres as `docu-fiction’ or `monkumentary’, the following is authored in the same vein:

Who Gives A `Fuck’ Anymore?

A space meandering, life-giving, ball of configured atomic-elements, mysteriously infused with conscious-energy, though equally shared among its inhabitants; its degrees of intellectualized representation is definably and, disturbingly evident. This current epoch’s recorded history serving as source-proof to this expression.

The world seems targeted toward a destiny that belies even the bravest of us to stand against; the prodigious, globalist tyranny that blazons this 21st century existence. The fomentation of those whom came before us in the belief; the foresight to the future of human-kind was theirs to behold. But, times committed passage finds the antithesis; contemporary humanity, succumbing to a malaise surpassing the vilest, cruellest, deadliest of viral bacterium: Greed!

Throughout earthly organism that is humanity; greed for ownership, translated to power of position, spreads like a metastasized cancer. Inflicting its sufferance upon the majority; whom have been strategically, economically, brutalized into a permanent, state of subjugation and submission. A pervasive state; maliciously designed to lobotomize intellectual conjuring or real manifestation, in any form, of countering-forces. The ingenious tools to do so include mindless, distracting entertainment genres, legislated civil obedience replete with brutal, armed-enforcement and penalty-mechanisms and, the anchoring shackles of relentless, financial indebtedness.

Dire though this time depicts, it need not be reason to lament the future for human-kind. Intrinsic to the nature of all living entities is the facet: survival. The intuitive mental and physical strength to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles; like the Phoenix, to rise from the ashes, triumphant and determinately driven to reaffirm it presence.

The question remains for humanity: can it do so without repeating the ills of its historic past or, ask itself: `Who gives a ‘Fuck’ any more?’?

Forever Home


home

 

The braveness of our naive youth directs
Choice of an alternate path of place to select
To face the challenge for once to be brave
To leave what in memory only is to be saved

Times passage dulls the painful emotion
Letting life speed ahead with locomotion
Striving to conquer our desired ambition goals
Uncertain to what wealth of fulfillment it holds

Decades seamlessly fall by the way
Filled with heart-aches, love and play
Then arrives the call to re-examine purpose
When memories of youthful times resurface

The unwitting sense of return to our youthful home
Takes on a recurring, pronounced mental drone
Not with a beckoning charmed-voice call
But with an allure one cannot fore-stall

Defiant defenses having finally succumb
Forgetting what was lost for what is won
Rejoicing again in all that was once known
To finally return to what forever will be home.

Naked Sun-bathing


 

 

naked

 

Freely naked on the beach, under the Sun
Not for exhibitionistic purpose but just for lazing fun

Strangers ogling, perplexed as they pass
Question: is it brash nakedness or, the sexy curvy ass?

Either way, it is less concerning or, of little regard
At least until one’s penis decides to show hard

Then, it is a matter beyond taking a stand
Especially if it goes beyond a covered hand

In which case the matter can become absurd
As all around become increasingly disturbed

This being the case of lewd public display
It isn’t long before the law enters the fray

What began as innocent avoidance of daily drudge
Now transcends to stand accused before a judge

If there is a moral to this humorous literary pursuit
It is this: avoid naked sun-bathing; wear a swim-suit!

Interviewers’ Query


If you are not familiar; the CBC’s (Canadian Broadcasting Corp)  Jian Ghomeshi hosts an insightful and entertaining radio and television show titled `Q’ wherein he interviews those of the Art’s be it music, film, theater, etc., etc.. 

Recently he interviewed Robert Downey Jr. and Jian’s style in conducting the interview prompted a thought to question:  

                                     What is the Interviewers’ role?

Resulting in the following poem as an idea toward answering the question: 

Asking the questions, not to pry,
Looking for answers that avoid a lie;
Peering into eyes that will justify,
Beyond intellect of insight to verify.

No trick of questions’ cross-examination,
Just purpose to discern potential fabrication;
Looking to avoid an inward consternation,
The story unfolding is want of further confirmation.

Neither shrewd nor devious is the intent,
The want is for truthful, insightful content;
Not the distracting illusion of the mind’s invent,
An Interviewers’ query is theirs for reason to prevent.

The Death Of Innocent Civilians


refugee

 

The deadly game of global chess being played out by the power elites of nations has but one consequence: the death of innocent civilians.

Exploration of the causes/issues that manifest into conflict over the centuries be it regional, national or international; more often than not are the contrivance of pro- or anti– factions to an ideology premised on theocracy, democracy or autocracy and variant machinations thereof.

However, more significant are they whom, above the fray, are the ultimate and true authors, purveyors to these conflicts who recognize and utilize the variants in ideology to their optimum benefit; be the motivation to attain supreme power of control of the mechanistic aspects of global social order or more fundamentally, control of global currency.

Recognizing that every system is inherently defined by a hierarchical structure, often represented as a pyramid; it is inevitable that within the matrix of the grand pyramid structure, comprised of a multitude of sub-system, pyramidal structures, each representing an element of power in its own right becomes source to potential conflict.

Essentially on examination of the quagmire that is the conflict in the Middle East, this is exactly what is transpiring.

Representing the ideology of democracy, grand pyramidal structure in the Middle East conflict is the United States under the auspicious of a Coalition of  Nations (though this grouping can be confidently deemed but a sub-system structure to yet a higher order of power often alluded to as the Power Elite or Ghost Global Governance; reputed authors to the New World Order).

Representing the ideology of theocracy, grand pyramidal structure in the Middle East conflict is presumed to be Islamic Muslims however, in reality, it essentially is non-existent. This conclusion is in recognition of Islam not being a monolithic (religious) organization but rather, is comprised of eight recognized sects within the Middle East, namely: (Source: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/muslims-adhere-to-different-islamic-sects.html)

Sunni Muslims include 84%–90% of all Muslims. Sunni means “tradition,” and Sunnis regard themselves as those who emphasize following the traditions of Muhammad and of the first two generations of the community of Muslims that followed Muhammad.

A number of movements to reform Islam have originated mainly in the 20th century. Some are limited to one country and others have a broader influence. Most are Sunni movements, such as the Wahhabis, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Jama`at-i-Islami.

Shi`ite Muslims comprise 10%–16% of all Muslims. Shi`ites are the “party of `Ali,” who believe that Muhammad’s son-in-law `Ali was his designated successor (imam) and that the Muslim community should be headed by a designated descendent of Muhammad. Three main subgroups of Shi`ites are Twelvers (Ithna-`Asharis), Seveners (Isma`ilis), and Fivers (Zaydis).

Sufis are Islamic mystics. Sufis go beyond external requirements of the religion to seek a personal experience of God through forms of meditation and spiritual growth. A number of Sufi orders, comparable to Christian monastic orders, exist. Most Sufis are also Sunni Muslims, although some are Shi`ite Muslims. Many conservative Sunni Muslims regard Sufism as a corruption of Islam, although most still regard Sufis as Muslims.

Baha’is and Ahmadiyyas are 19th-century offshoots of Shi`ite and Sunni Islam, respectively. Bahai’s consider themselves the newest of the major world’s religions but recognize that historically they originated from Shi`ite Islam in the same way that Christianity originated from Judaism. Ahmadiyyas do regard themselves as Muslims. Most other Muslims, however, deny that either group is a legitimate form of Islam and regard members of both groups as heretics — people who have corrupted and abandoned Islamic belief and practice.

Druze, Alevis, and `Alawis are small, sectarian groups with unorthodox beliefs and practices that split off from Islam. Druze and Alevis do not regard themselves as Muslims and are not considered Muslims by other Muslims. `Alawis have various non-Islamic practices, but debate continues as to whether they should still be considered Muslims.

Then, there is Wahabi & Salafi religions of the Arab States and ultimately, this Sect has four names SALAFI, WAHABI, NAJDI and AHL-HADITH – although today they prefer to call themselves Salafi. (Source: http://www.alahazrat.net/islam/wahabi-salafi.php).

Adding to the fray and confusion are the presence of Israeli Jews, Christians and Muslims and variant fundamentalist orthodoxies within each identifiable sect.

This fragmentation of theological ideology is but one, if not easiest to identify components to the complexity being encountered by the purveyors and pursuers of democratic ideology into the Middle East region.

Historically and currently, human societal order of the Middle East is premised on the concept of Tribalism; each tribe having a designated leader who in-turn, participates in a regional council of tribal leaders. For a fuller explanation of the subject refer to `The Middle East’s Tribal DNA’ (http://www.meforum.org/1813/the-middle-easts-tribal-dna).

Given the nature of societal order within the Middle East being so divergent from that of democratically idealized Western culture nations, renders it an intellectually impossible concept to phantom western-style democracy ever taking root. It is conceivable that a form of parliamentary governance for day-to-day management of such things as public works, tax collection, health-care and other generalized societal organs however, this would likely always be subordinate to the individual Tribal Councils from each province comprising the nation as a whole.

In conclusion; bearing in mind the original, stated premise `every system is inherently defined by a hierarchical structure, often represented as a pyramid; …the grand pyramid structure…’; what is attempted here to clarify; the divergent differences of the two principle facets (factions) to the Middle East conflict, namely; the democratic ideology: an organized grand pyramidal structure versus; theological ideology not nor likely to every be an equivalent structure; the satisfactory outcome will likely be forever indeterminate. And, until this is recognized by those at the top of the grand of grand pyramids pursuing and ensuing these battles, they will conceivably be without end with only one major consequence: the death of innocent civilians.

Immersed in the history treading madness that is this earthly existence, questioning the irrational rationality that yields no qualitative answer evokes emotions beyond description; fomenting a resolve toward disengagement of intellectual processes’ attempt to decipher reason toward objective definition of humanity’s purpose of being within the context of principles of synergistic, symbiotic relevance speculated to be the orchestrated product of a divine, omnipresent  ethereal entity; an arguably acceptable theory that is proving to be failing
