On the scale of one to fail we know that bail will not be set, the courtroom is a circus the clowns are in the whitehouse and the jugglers are in the big house waiting for the intake. Democracy’s being fucked by the fat guy in the tux’ If you speak out you’ll be rubbed…

what we know now and then

We can believe they’re well fed or we can lead them to the table. he drowns near to water denying the hangman. I sit watching Babylon television on, mind off.

Testing Testing how goes it in the crows nest? You can laugh but we’re all at sea, and with that bushy beard the lookout looks like David Bellamy. when we get back to what we should do because that’s the place we are heading, it’ll be like Bedlam with no beds in just the bosses…

Games of patience

It becomes increasingly unclear as to how near the end we actually are, perhaps I should get in my car and ask them In Durham. If like me you are self isolating, suffocating under the suggestion that we’re not taking this seriously, there’s nothing we can do but get on with it, and isolate a…

Privateer here

They started playing a shanty I’m getting seasick. Up on the poop deck no one poops because we don’t do that on ships and neither on sloops. and you’d find it hard to build walls around you in the middle of an ocean. Where is the ‘we’ is it just us and them, are ‘we’…

Nothing says Saturday like sunshine and what a day this could be, it could be a trip down to Brighton, a dip in the sea, it could be but it won’t be and the only sea I’ll see is Battersea and that’s if I’m bothered enough to go there. Do not despair something is out…
