OUR DUTY

Added,this 6th Day Of August, 2019

in remembrance of

the madness we perpetrated

on August 6, 1945

Damn us!  Damn them!

Silent flashes filled the skies 


Thousands gasped, gaped and died 

As the sun’s own heat boiled their brains 


And baste their bones as their fat flamed.

Miles in the distance, burnt lobster red 


Blinded mothers shook in dread 


As skinless children in skeleton frames 


Moaned their agonys in utter vain.

Greed’s own bastards with weapons in hand 

Stroked the triggers that killed that land 


And in so doing silently proclaimed 


Our parents were Fools! Cowards born in vain!

Damned be our mothers! Those whorish sluts! 

Who bred with dogs and produced us! 


Instead of men!! 


Damn Us! Damn Them!

Damned be our fathers! Those cowardly pigs! 


Who signed away our freedoms! And then took swigs! 


To toast the dollars of home directed pay! 


While we, AS IDIOTS, were sent to harm's way!

Damn be the heartless! May they painfully fall! 

Into their pit of hate! As their souls are called! 

May God, WITH A VENGEANCE(!), for them prescribe 


Never ending pain . . . . and brine in OUR eyes.

In Muddy Fields Forgotten

Above Muddy Fields Forgotten,  

O'er Fools Thrown There Astrew 


Raptors Soar So Patiently,  

For Soldier Meat Anew.

Their Caw A Certain Tempo,  

Eyes Glancing Down The Wait 


For Bullets Through Vacant Minds  

And Carrion For Their Plates.

God!  I Pray!  Damn Such Fools!  

Such Brainless, Useless Twits! 


Send Them To A Special Hell!  

Where Together They Can Frit!

About Their Flags And Colours,  

And Reasons Long Forgot! 


And Why They Died So Uselessly,  

Their Shrouded Faces Frought,

With The Price Of Their Stupidity! 
 

And Their Souls So Cheaply Bought!

Do They Curse Their Ignorance,  

Of Knowledge Too Late Learned? 

And Ache At Our Rememberance,  

Of  Bravery Never Earned?

*****************

To Another Way

In Flanders Fields birds fly by 


Ignored by the poppies and those who died. 


To the Lark, the flowers had no choice 

Similar, the soldiers who raised no voice.

At early dawn, low pitched cries 


Wail at the waste caused by lies. 


Why were we lined as tins on shelves? 


Why were we lined as sheep for the shells?

In those grey fields, the crows are alert 


Squawking at the moans, the calls from the dirt 


That curse empty longings, and scream at greed's hopes, 


Of things for ourselves and for others a rope.

In those fields, oft forgotten, some stop to pray 

Forgetting the insanity, forgetting the ways 


Of boys being men and doing as such, 


Murdering on 'orders'; then dying like mulch.

"What can we do?”


STOP YOUR ENGINES!

- Or accept extinction! -

LIFE’S DUSTY PASSING 

Prophetic. Ghost grey,  Industrial pall.

Suspended, Screening our greed,

Hiding our gall. Deflecting our view

Of a dust laden extinction.

Answering our follies,

Our demands of MORE!

DJL  - Meanderings - Spring/85

(In 27 wee words!) - WoW! 

BTW: I maintain my long stated predictions that we shall suffer

"A Great Starvation" BY Spring 2022.

And "that" BTW, guarantees our now unavoidable extinction

BY 2026

"What can we do?” 

“What can we do,

without having to 

store our personal vehicles?”,

is the actual question we wish to pose.

And pose such, silently,

because we know, deep within,

of the wrong we first committed

when refusing to accept the facts

of where our greed was leading.

That is our present day reality.

But we have no time to cry over such. 

We waited far too long and 

added far too much heat,

crap and emissions to our

atmosphere.

Our duty, now, for those

who have a sense of maturity

sufficient to recognize the

degree of the threat

to our survival as a species,

is such that there can be no

time wasted on recriminations:

We

ENFORCE

the storage of

all personal vehicles,

or inform our children

that they have no future.

That is the reality of where our

greed driven behavior has driven us.

That many are still unsure

of whether or not we

should proceed to such an

action is part of the reason

we face an early extinction.

That and the associated greed driving

our insatiable desires for “More!”

must now be opposed and defeated.

We have no choice.

If we grant our greed’s desires

for a few more decades,

our sudden awakening ‘then’

when we won’t be able to deny or alter

what is happening, and why it is happening,

will lead us to turn on each other, knowing

that We-Lied to our children!

WE MUST

IMMEDIATELY STORE

ALL PERSONAL VEHICLES

or accept that

we are determined to do

NOTHING MEANINGFUL

to try to save a

meaningful future

for our children!

Can we paint

this madness

in any other way?

Laws!

What about the body of laws

that purportedly exist to ensure

that none can so threaten the other?


What  about the laws that we

have so assiduously developed

in order to confront, control and

hopefully erase all crimes against children?


Where are those laws,

NOW when we can openly see where

our Criminal misuse of Nature’s Gifts has led us?


Where are those “laws”,

now, to protect our children

from the consequences of our

NON- STOP GREED FOR “MORE!”?


Where are those laws and “Lawmakers’

including Judges, Parents and whatever

Policing we have put in place

to protect our Children!?

Where are they?

Where are they now when we

need the power of law

in order to save

our children?

WHERE?

The result is our

“Over-Polluted World”.

With NOTHING

being learned by anyone!

SO! DO WE JUST LET IT GO?

AND BLAME IT ON ‘OTHERS!”?

Woe! There will be No One to blame!

Our Books! Our Beliefs! Our Religions!

And the millions that we killed,

at such great cost,

in order to achieve

“Dominance”!

That will be gone!

All of it!

We’ll all be gone and that’s the end of that!

Can you now understand what is going on?

Can you now

UNDERSTAND

what is meant by

“The Madness Of Greed”?

Can you now understand

the need to confront it?


To a safer, saner

and

more caring world!

To Duty!

What is one's duty,

When acknowledging a threat 

That would destroy all beauty, 

And steal children's breath?

 
Does therein lie evil

In avoiding a way

That forces the matter,

That builds to a day  

 When humanity shatters

Greed's guilty ways?

D.J.L. February 21/88

Travellers! Everyone!

To Duty!

Contribute to the effort!

And help spread the word!
