      What do you mean, “bananas”??!!?!

      Why do you racist Europeans always mock us poor Africans by talking about bananas and monkeys and such things?

      You have hurt me so much, boo hoo hoo. You are a wicked, evil person guilty of colonialism and genocide against my people. You have the blood of fifty million black slaves on your hands, you wicked person. I hate you.

      But I am a good, peaceful man and I will pray for your filthy soul.

        I won’t pray for your soul, it’s so ‘white’ and ‘pure’ it doesn’t need any prayers to be saved.

    This is interesting. I like the gaunt structure of this piece almost like the object you are writing about. It creates a good, but cold atmosphere. I hope this is what you are aiming for. I have a feeling it may be about depression or indecision.

    Sounds like you had a good night. I’m not sure I could handle an event like that, probably I’d laugh at them and get thrown out or into a fight. Poets are sooo sensitive.
    Your descriptions are brilliant. I could almost smell the sweat and weed.

    From guajiros on Incurable idealists

    I’m not sure I am an incurable idealist. I think my ideals are slowly melting away, or perhaps being eroded by the madness we call modern society. I’d like to be like Geoffrey Labowski, but I don’t smoke. I’s like to be a nihilist but I don’t believe I could handle it.

    I liked this poem

    Empty words indeed – Surat and Sydney, good analogy. I’ve been to Surat; plenty of Australians there!

    “You maybe healing your elbows
    But hurting your knees.”

    In Denmark I heard a similar expression: “Pissing in your trousers to keep warm.”

    From guajiros on Double role

    Hello,
    You sum up this problem so well with these moving words. I saw how people (especially the young) have to struggle to eat and take care of their families. They have to pay the street mafia and endure insults and ridicule from those only marginally better off who refer to them as ‘The Australians’ and other derogatory terms.

    Few people here are aware of how life really goes on in the so called fastest growing economy on Earth.
    You make a good point that unfortunately no one listens to.

    From Alfie_Shoyger on The French Scottish Twat

    Wow!!! This is amazing!!!

    This is beautifully crafted, passionate, evocative work, truly groundbreaking, a genuine spark of raw genius!

    Politically astute, with a deep understanding of history and of the evils of the white man. And no names are mentioned, so it’s totally not obvious at all who the target of this piece is.

    Can we nominate this for the next anthology? Or give it a nib?

      I will not thank you for your comment, because you are white. As a strong black man I do not need white people’s help.

      But yes, you are right. This is indeed a work of true genius aimed at a despicable colonialist racist!

    From shywolf on Charming fellow

    “All the world’s a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players;
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,”

    Shakespeare

    In our heart of hearts, what are we indeed, a Chaplin or a Hitler? In a world full of ‘actors’, it’s sometimes difficult to tell. But do you want to be a charming fellow, when in your heart, you’re not?

    “It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.”

    Mahatma Gandhi

    A very thought provoking poem, supratik.

    Now that is a powerful image. It begs the question, is that little girl also a fruit of the tree? Is the tree of life also the tree of death? A very sharp three-liner.

    sometimes we are trouble magnets. we cannot avoid trouble. I do think now it is better not to bother at all eventually, to stop replying as I did for years and years on a site here, politics, boy have written pages and pages of comments and replies over there, but I left, others left too, and now they are begging for visitors and people to comment. that’ll teach them a lesson.

      From supratik on Relax

      Did you know this? The history syllabus in GB doesn’t talk about their Indian colonisation? Their children of today will not know what they did in India! It is such a disservice to history. They’re so ashamed of it that they avoid it like plague… why should it be so I wonder. They’ll never ever change if they’re not conscious. Even today, when they talk to an Indian, it is interesting to read their coinage… Like the response I received from Franciman says… ‘I did not grant you the courtesy’… give me a break please…i know it’s an expression, but why would you use such an expression at all unless you want to belittle someone with your Hoitytoity air eh! In psychoanalysis, one evaluates a person on the basis of the words one uses… like Beckett said… You are your words. But they are neither wrong, nor bad… it’s just the belief system that’s clouding them… they’re attached to their countries… and I have moved away from this tribalism long ago. I am convinced that I belong to the world and I will never ever overlook my past, not make anyone overlook their past, one has to learn from them.

        No, British kids often do learn about the Raj. We learned it at school. They mentioned the Amritsar massacre and all of Gandhi’s boycotts in his little loincloth.

        Now can you please stop posting seven poems at once and keep it to a maximum of two?

          Well Supratik (what does your name mean, I fail to remember, is it symbol? I know Yash means victory, Anil means air, Djeerah means patience)

          when somebody uses such expressions in Greek when addressing me, I start with :

          Example Person: – I didn’t grant you the courtesy bla bla bla
          Me: I grant you the amplitude of my silence until you rephrase. tee hee

            Su means good, pratik means symbol. But bongs pronounce all /s/ as /sh/ (didn’t get the exact phonetic symbol in my bloody mobile)… so be careful with the bongs, especially when they say, Come, sit beside me.

      From supratik on Relax

      I can completely understand. In India too, such things happen. But I am determined to say what I have to say. The funny thing is that here in India people think I’m a traitor for what I write about them… like Trevor wrote about our moon landing programme… it’s such a shame… people don’t have one square meal here. And the Europeans think I hate them ha ha ha! I’m perpetually wearing a black hat… if at all, I think I’m close to a Pied Piper. Slowly people will realise that I can move the Arabian sea to the Pacific Ocean…. not with any black magic, but simply with my thoughts. Until people all over the world realise their mistakes, consciousness will remain a word. I’m determined to bring about the metanoia, a shift in the way people perceive their world.
      You enjoy your days… as an exhibitionist ha ha ha.
      Cheers!

        I’ve just watched Sue Perkins in India on the TV here, the last stage of following the Ganges from source in the Himalayas to the Bangladesh delta outlet, talking to the locals and discussing their customs and beliefs. At the Bangladesh “Glastonbury” she walked past the line of totally naked gurus accepting money while banging the giver on the head with long birch brushes. The last one she gave money to had his legs wide open, and Sue Perkins said “What enormous testicles!” Hahahahaha! I must admit, he looked like Supratik with cremation ash smeared on his face! Haahahaha!

            black cumin is against human parasites, it’s a great supplement. of course once you start killing them, they will try to kill you too. the Arabs say it cures everything but Death.
            doing it for four years now. I suspect my now suffering from sciatica has a lot to do with getting rid of parasites.

      Hey Alfie, I am really sorry for this. I trashed all of them when you pointed out for the first time. But as I will be leaving my place for two days, I thought of restoring them before I left, but the moment I did that they all popped up. I thought there was a technical glitch or something? But going forward I will remember this. It is so so unfair to occupy space like this.
      You have a great day.
