In a despondent moment. Well, I’m allowed.
Like lambs to the slaughter
they stumble on, signs aloft,
believing they can cause
change to the valleys,
to the fields, the beaches,
the cities, the flack chuckers.
But the flack chuckers laugh
inwardly like demented demons,
for they have found bliss
with gold flecked bath bombs,
and dosh stuffed mattresses,
Lamborghinis and Mayfair pads.
In truth there is shit
At both ends of the rainbow,
just more at one grimy end
than the other sparkly one.
But both ends have shit
of one kind or another

We all have our moments! I blame global warming myself; my brain is frazzled and I’m losing my hair.
I’m off to find a t..d to polish.
Me, I’ve been six days trying to paint these leopard spots on this donkey, but the paint won’t stick. I’m beginning to think it is futile – a bit like expecting truth from a politician.
PS: Thanks for the comment.
haha, well that is another name for them. I think we are all getting heart sick of everything to be honest. The world is in chaos.
Best to stay indoors with a good book, some soothing music and the devil take the rest!

I am riding a trough at the moment. Like, I’m into a book that quite evidently I am going to read again AND make notes next time: Not conducive to living the dream. The music (everything) is being interrupted by the cats, and every time I see the Devil stalking I shout out a warning but no-one takes a blind bit of notice. Apart from that I am at peace (perhaps that should read ‘pieces’?) (*is there an emoticon for tongue in cheek that is clear?*) Very kind of you to offer me the advice, though. Blessings and love, Allen… Read more »
Thank you for commenting and appraising, Trevor. I am tempted to write about spiritual inheritance and so on, being the cause of Humanity’s cyclical experience. But probably not the time or place. I’m really grateful for your thoughts and comments.
yes. the rainbow. something tells me this poem has a spiritually challenging side
Hello, Nic. Thank you for commenting. i’m sorry I have taken a while to respond. I know (from something you have said) that you will understand me when I say that sometimes the driving force for a ‘write’ is something rather mysterious: Subtle, would be a good word. In all honesty I did not start writing this with the intent of it having hidden meaning, but of course some of the ‘flack chuckers’ (taken from the oft spoken ‘flack from above’) have much more devious intent than simply accumulating wealth and using others to create it for them! They are… Read more »
the rainbow is part of my theory. a big part, or should I say the post big bang part. I may try to illustrate it somehow some day over the rainbow (funnily enough this song has a hidden meaning, intentional or unintentional.)
