about

have a look around you and tell me what you can see.

The woods can’t be heard for the trees. Make me the president and you’ll see how many benefits I will bring to you. We sang traditional hymns of such moving melody that the lyrics seem almost senseless. Wander into the seas and tell me what you find under the bedded wilderness that lies out beyond the worst of it all. I’ll never forget that look on her face as the last of it was thrown together by her father. Nothing but shame. If I have any questions then I’ll ask for support from anyone but you. We all wear the burning crown but never take the responsibilities it brings to us. Up at the table, the waiters are overly casual in their approach to their policies. However are we to react to the follies of the indifferent? No one speaks of the failures of their fathers. No one is left to consider the crowds of people left behind. All the structures are lying empty under the black roof that once we called home. We aspire to be something and someone we are not yet we never carp at our respective failures. I hear the horn sounding over the river, bringing us back to the land of play and forgetfulness. We jumble the game and stare into the sun, trying to forget that there ever was a tomorrow back then. Romatics, all of us. Look up at the screen and try and describe what you can see through the fixated lenses we have applied to you and all those around you. The water rats don’t try and run away. No favours. With the passing of the long sweeps of time, all that once harboured any meaning has become the acme of meaninglessness.
