For my Friend John. – Pause

From The Mind Unleashed:


For my friend John,
whom I never knew,
but who helped shape me,
who’s with me in my dreams,
who still instills hope now,
in future generations.

Working Class Hero – John lennon.

Just listen to those lyrics! They give me the shivers.

Hurray for John!

Hello John!

From my brother Lieven:

Working Class Hero

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and class less and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

The Insane Concept of Real Estate!

Insane in the Brain

Whoever dreamt up the notion that anyone can own a part of Mother Earth must be a very delusional individual indeed! Let me get this straight, this planet of ours has been around for billions of years and some human, whom Earth might see as a very temporary nuisance only, wants to claim a part of her? If you are a believer, then the maximum that you could state is that this world “belongs” to God and was given to use on loan, to treat with respect, which seems an impossibility to most people.

I distinctly remember my mother saying, after I’d categorically stated that such and such were MY toys, that I should share. When I was a child I spake as a child. But now, that I am an adult, I have gotten very serious indeed about these, my childish notions!

If you believe in Nature then you will probably subscribe to the notion that we humans are just another one of the species inhabiting this clump of clay and that we will possibly be succeeded by another species, who will prove to be less destructive and more adaptable.

Most people work their whole lives to pay off a mortgage(mort means dead in French, a deal till the death, in other words) on a place that their children(if they have any) will probably fight over and/or piss away in no time. And all this for the illusion of security? What is so “real” about this estate then? How many families have been able to hang on to “their” plot of land for generations? If they have done so, it was probably through force and exploitation of other ‘lesser’ beings, whose duty it was to serve them!?

And what about the mere notion of possession in and of itself? What can one man or woman really possess, come to think of it? Even our own bodies are temporary vessels, that we MUST at some time relinquish. Isn’t death the greatest equaliser of all? Why do we bother to amass so-called property that can go into other hands at the drop of a hat? It can get stolen, one could go bankrupt and we must all die. Would you take them all with you, like pharaoh? A fat lot of good they will be to you in the afterlife, I’m sure!

But why do we think that bricks and mortar are so special? It is just a roof over our heads, if you really consider it. Or do you consider it your home? Is not your home, where your heart lies? What if your loved ones where all to leave to some other abode? Would you not follow them? Sharing seems to be more sensible to this dimwit, but few people will subscribe to that point of view, I am certain! The world economy would collapse… Oh, what a pity!

Stop reading, go to sleep, for tomorrow you must get up to earn another dollar to pay the taxman and the bills! What a life, hey? I just wish it could be otherwise! What did old John sing: “Nothing to kill or die for… and all that..” That was just a dream, John! They call us weird, John! Maybe we are?
