Love You Long Time

For Mr Burroughs

Water boiled
Tar dissolved
Vacuum filled
Boy 
Did that vacuum fill

Plunge

We're going in
We're going down
Mayday mayday mayday
Napalm noon
No forgiveness
No coordinates
My lie 
Your lie
Endless lies
Jacked up deceit
Huey Bell Apache
Door gunner dreams
Of milky sap
Tap me tap me
Rat a tat tat
Look at the peasants run
Take me up the mountains
Take me out of here
Hit the target
Kill the child
Find a vein
We're going in
We're going down
Blood bath
Massacre
Wasted
Can't go on
I won't go on
But listen to monkey chatter
Masturbating up trees

Then she turned to me and said
'Don't you just love the smell of spring?'

Fuck me did the vacuum fill
Give me a sec to goof
Fuck me did the vacuum fill
Give me a sec to goof


Snakes in paradise
Here come the corpses
The corpses 
Keep coming
Don't you see?
I need
Out of here
Bang
Pull the trigger
Bang
Push the plunger
Bang
You're dead
Dead
Did you hear me?
DEAD
Stay the fuck down
But they keep coming
Again and again and again
Human waves
Basra marshes
Poison gasses
Jihadi hordes
Hitching
To paradise
Iran 
Give me soft landing
Afghan
Not hard place
Iraq
The mission's never accomplished
Look look look
The towel head is still moving
Hit him again
Waste the mutha
Raze the gaffe
It's a free fire zone
The whole shop's a shooting gallery
Push the plunger
Pull the trigger 
Drop the load

Light up the horizon
God I miss Saigon
Give me jungle over jihad
And 'double uo globe' brand
Float me up the Mekong
Love me long time
Pure shock and awe
It's a curse it's a joy it's a curse it's a joy 
It's a cursed fucking joy
Love you long time
Be the death of me


Shoot up, mount up, move out
On the march on the move on the hustle
Soon as you're up you're down
Soon as you're up you're down
Pull the trigger
Push the plunger
Fuck Art
Fuck Religion
Fuck You
I'm out of it
I'm right
Out
Of
Here

Pouting and shouting in Paris




There's the guff on the Paris gig. Please tell anyone you know in Paris who might enjoy it to come along. Should be fun.


Poetry and jazz. Jesus man I have a become a hipster inadvertently in my old age. Time for a beard.

Scratch them kids.

Genocide Is My Man United - A new collection in print

Starting work on the new book - and saying this in public to up the pressure on myself to get my act to together. The plan is to incorporate the best of the current e-book with a host of new works, most already written. 'Genocide is my Man United' is the planned title. It's going to be another Politicalworld.org publication with Cass Flower back again as editor and publisher. Bruce Ryder and Michael will once again be the main men on visuals. Herman will be back bringing some design discipline to the anarchic show. There will also be new artists coming on board with superb work from Conor Ferguson and Gary already in. And there's a great recent shot of me from Conor Horgan. Mark Shanley,Syra and Rock Archive will no doubt feature again. Several others are also most likely to be involved, either again or making their debut - though I am not sure if they all know it yet. Ivan once again will be offering advice and guidance. Frank may produce the audio side of things and also write an intro. There's no money, needless to say, so once again it will all have to be done with love, hustle and hassle. Warning: I'll be out bugging people for favours. I Love the Internet by Kevin Barrington has sold some 350 copies which isn't bad given it's an e-book of poetry and the debut publication from Political World. Hopefully we will sell many times that in print. With a bit of luck Genocide Is My Man United will be out in the early summer. Here's a reading of the title poem

A PEEP OF THE SHOW



A friend just sent this to me. Cheered up a shit day.
I look like I am having a ball.
It's from November.
Funny, cos I am kind of blank on the affair.
It was just three months after my medical treatment ended and there was emerging normal energy to take the edge off the toxic meds madness.
It's more performance than the assault of previous outings.
But it was all shrouded in that Interferon brain fog.
Also being new to the game, you don't really have a vivid picture of how you look.
So it's good to see the show.
And in a nice little package too.
Ta Rick/Anne

Had the pleasure of sitting for a few snaps with Conor Horgan.

Here are two of the best

One animated

The other all gloomy author serious

I'm very happy with them

Thank you Conor

Efficiency


I was reading this Oxfam report by Mark Malone

A double decker bus full of rich people own more than half the planet do.
Go figure.


When
