Alternate universes

Normally
when I talk of alternate universes
I refer to an awful specific set of close cousins
where Hero meets Babbage meets Hofmann
and Tesla rigs zeppelins for the Commune.

But looking at this image
liquefies the lead blindfold
of atomic understanding and material demands
just enough to make out a far grander panoply of worlds;
One where Sumerian gods are real
and pissing their names in a river gives you control of its flow.

At the warmest edge of this multiverse is Paradise
For there the beauty on the T. Rex is my Bride.

A few poems about politics

leave a comment »

Rapture Ready
Christians for Herod
backing Jews for Goliath
No room in the inn

Apologies to the Eighteenth Century
That monstrous Beast, the People assembl’d
Mobocrats clamour! a Terrible sound:
That the High shall be least! And the paupers resembl’d
A HAMMER Almighty, pinning kings to the Ground.

Burke
There’s a certain little quirk
In the thinking of a fellow
Of a man named Edmund Burke
And followers of his, less mellow:
Though their logic’s often right
That quick upheaval devastates
They never realize that they fight
The losing side in all debates

Liberals
Look! The liberals appear
The group that studiously shuns
Revolt, for common sense is clear:
Police alone should have the guns.

History, they say, has closed
“Don’t kill the tyrants! Dock their pay.”
For weddings, armies, CEOs
Are quite alright if they are gay
