Mall

Enter at your own risk
Pacification is everywhere
Watch your step
Keep your elbows in
Those eyes and smiles
Can they be believed?
Is fun really to be had?
Yet I feel fierce
This is duty
For love and family
My tour ends soon
Will I have to return?
Or can I be free?

Swarms

It’s an impossible task to get an image of a beautiful place that contains no people. So we need to accept that fact, move on and capture different images. I find this one beautiful and believe it to be enhanced by the swarms of people visible. Zoom in and see how many selfies are being taken, you probably won’t be surprised.

Rush : Poem

We need it, it gives us a high, sending us to another sphere.

Out of this sensible world where everyone is safe, stable, yet they still rush.

A different rush, one with no feeling, other than panic.

Panic on the streets, get somewhere, get some thing, get someone.

All now, tomorrow is too late.

Now!

Thin Skin

Don’t laugh, don’t joke. Don’t criticise or question. It seems these days, so many people are suffering from a lack of strength. The thin skinned, the snowflakes, whatever title they are given they seem to take offence at everything.

Those who suffer from this condition come from all areas of life. The whole political spectrum is covered; don’t criticise or joke about a sex, don’t take my gun. The religious world uses this condition as its own armour; if you criticise the actions of Israel then you must be an antisemite.

The need for protection and support has become the need for silence. Criticise at your peril, for you may need stronger protection yourself. But the world needs critics, it needs ideas, it needs intelligent thought. So don’t snuff it out, please, just think about it. A silent world would be a scary place.
