The Realms of Gold Still Open

Compliance in 2021

Some folk
Are so afraid of other people
They will never follow instructions
Even edicts backed by law
Are defied
Under the pretence of freedom
Or similar clichés of wrong doing disguised
Orders are a curse
To these divergent ones
Who these days tend to cluster in the streets
Or other public places
Waving banners and shouting abuse
At integrity
Mind you, one should always note
The words of Saint Augustine:
“An unjust law is no law at all.”
And against this madness
It is a noble deed
To storm the barricades of iniquity
As some will do
Even in the face of time in prison
Such deeds stand like mountains of stone
In an age of expert wickedness
But how will we know
When compliance or defiance is justified?
There are two positive answers to this question
Support of what’s right will make you important beyond the grave
But when people may or do die because of your actions
Because of your disobedience
You must change your ways at once
And do as you are told

Non Geniuses Sed Asini

The Latin: Not Geniuses But Donkeys


The saddest thing about science right now
is that science gathers knowledge faster than
society gathers wisdom
. Isaac Asimov

Well what do you know?
There they are
Look at them here now in 2021
Those bogus Einsteins dominating their micro world
Luring the ingenuous into colluding media viewing places
Like flies to animal dung
Where lies are repeated ad nauseam
How they endorse themselves
These puffed up noticeboards of nonsense
Behaving like PhD graduates
From courses taken for a song in America
Denying reality
As if the sun didn’t greet the morn
Babbling balderdash like evangelists
Speaking with the Imprimatur of the ages…
So global warming is a fallacy
Vaccination is a Mafia conspiracy
Hydroxychloroquine will cure the virus
There IS such a thing as clean coal
The wind doesn’t always blow
And the sun doesn’t always shine
So renewable resources will send the nation bankrupt
What can I say to these people?
All I can think of just now is Sieg Heil, Auf Wiedersehen
And don’t forget to shut the door

And to recognise reality I will always try

Consensus

Consensus is the concern of the politician
Everything he does seeks to portray universal support
No matter how wild or extreme or personally lucrative
His intrigue may be
Add to this the myside bias
A deadly dangerous thing, that accepts
Only data that supports its views
And there it is
The formula for absolute power, dictatorship or Fascism
Let us look now at climate change reality
The nemesis of mining and steel corporations
O how violent has been their attack on science!
So what of this?
In essence climate science is verifiable data
A positive link to the real world
How different this is from slanted dialogue
From the self-interested mission statements
Of some giant corporations and their media allies
Crying out blatantly and undisguised
From a convenient, fabricated consensus
For permission to destroy the world
Science in stark contrast
Does not depend on consensus
And yet science consensus does exist
It is not always bad
But what really matters is the outcome of scientific research
Indeed
Some of history’s greatest scientists have defied consensus
So what of reality for us here and now?
Without doubt in the years to come
If wildfire burns so many futures away
If storms beat their fists and homes disastrously crumble
If farmlands turn into nothing more than deserts
If floods turn carparks into deathly whirlpools
We will recall the Jones deceit with the devil with coal in his hand
And the consensus then will be forever real


Closed Doors

What are they hiding?
There is a meeting going on over there
A cause célèbre is being resolved we are told
It is linked to human behaviour, that gathering
Indeed to the very existence of mankind
So the enclosed debate goes on
And on
Day follows day without an outcome
And still the doors are closed
Why is this so?
The answer my friend
Is not blowin’ in the wind
Because even the windows are closed
O accord! it is a gentle thing
Beloved from pole to pole
But when there is dissembling
The doors will close
To hide the woes
And heads will begin to roll
Extended time with doors closed
Is writing on the wall
The longer the time the greater the strife
And for all one knows, the more will be headed for a fall
If one or more speakers at that meeting
Has a point of view
Unpopular with the general
That is the probable reason the doors stay closed
Closed until the divergent one or ones
Can be silenced or overthrown
And desired appearances for public consumption
Are established
O joy then! the opening of the doors
And the veneer of unity is spread abroad
But beware you leaders who strive for a better world
The black sheep on that other side often wears wolf’s clothing
And may well use other closed doors for the seizing of power
