“ANTE BELLUM”
BEIGE
Best served where it can’t be seen On Stirling Silver platters With redruM narcotics Delivered by sharp Blood-Red Well-mannered talons Strutting in sleek wet rolling tight-skirted Long French Silk Stockinged legs all the way down to Lethal Six Inch stilettos - Manolo Blahniks - Shiny Pearls of cream glisten Around the Chanel Milk White necks dripping Manuka-honeyed smiles Ripping eyes out of the bent-back sockets of the Board-men’s heads, A contingent of seasoned office sex and politics Bullet-busted Fembots that bend just-so and flex. "Just a" Nubile serving wench delivers Beige redruM Served best
- “Chilled” -
In Wedgewood Crystal Goblets to the Old Boys with their over-sweeps, Orange tans, Viagra and their assorted kinda-Liquorice-All Sorts Rainbow coloured Bags of Candy popping Pretty Pink Heart Pills, Gluttonous, arrogant and unaware Sitting "stiffly" in their Pucci underwear and vintage Cardin and saintly Laurent knifeline-pressed suits that scream "J'ai tres tres debonnaire!" Moving pieces on the table, their version of Monopoly becomes Truth or Dare, Their countenance smoothly conveys, “I am your Over Lord, Beware”, as they swap business cards from their fat and overflowing wallets while sitting like Supreme Beings in their Lair, chortle vociferously unfazed, "the women are 'just' trollops", they compare, who has bigger guns and troops that pack the best Hell of a Chlorine Gas skin burning internal organs Whollop! As they play their little games, Pumping Masonic “G” fisted Greasy milk from their lubricated, soiled and fetid pockets, Swapping innocent lives For lethal chemicals, blood spray, tumbling heads and hellfire A cheap deal for Black Liquid Gold and Bolshy Atomic Rockets. There they sit, puffed up, superficial Poisonous and salivating consorting silent, sophisticated, bestial Around an ancient table (metaphorically speaking) they all are orderly, noxious, and sublimely fecal. Drunk on power, they are inebriated It shines and reflects in the faces Of these Narcissisitic dead-eyed Lupine Grinning Fork-tongued hissing False Phrophets who think that they are “Winning”. They are Slender Man each and every one - As they maim, murder and taste the blood Of all God’s children, Lambs to the slaughter. Yes they are Slender Man Well hidden in the beat-up They are the ones, The True Forgotten - They think that they are hidden. While from their view at 666 Across the Harbour That is really Styx, Ishtar wears her Crown of Seven Thorns The Shining Whore of Mystery Babylon Tres tres adored... The Fembots lean in seductively With just the right amount and slightest hint of cleavage. They serve their trays of BEIGE, While the Old Boys Grin at their sweet dewy melons And wish for Younger Days and hot sex with shame 'n fame street walking hungry-cum-centre-folding-Greenbacked-felons. Who can say, is this scene all too late to summon? Before the War is come? CODE WORD: Ante Bellum. BEIGE. Best served where it blends in, can’t be seen Po 210, an excellent year. (Lovejoy-Burton/April 2018)
New York? 17 'For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.' Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 "And cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What is like this great city?' 19 "They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.' Whore of Babylon? The Whore of Babylon is described as a harlot who sits on many waters in Revelation 17:1. The Hudson, Harlem, East, and Hackensack Rivers empty into New York Harbor, and many rivers in Connecticut also empty into Long Island Sound. The place where the East River meets Long Island Sound is called Hell Gate. On Long Island, there are suburbs of New York City called North Babylon, West Babylon, and Babylon. The Whore of Babylon was the Babylonian goddess of war and sexual lust known as Ishtar, whom other Semitic peoples of the ancient Middle East knew as Astarte, Ashtoreth, or Asherah, and who was called Aphrodite by the ancient Greeks and Venus by the Romans. The Statue of Liberty itself was modeled on the ancient Roman goddess of Libertas. 1. Owls/Bilderbergers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEbI5OUcD4M 2.

Such power, such terrifying beauty of truth these windswept words carry to the unsettled masses, Leanne! Your wisdom is your shield, your fearlessness is your sword. Speak on my warrior woman from Down Under! GREAT poem of pulsing ergonomic vitality. I do so admire your fiery convictions of compassion. Keep breathing in the boundless hope vision of victory to the good, and keep breathing out the inky demise of the decadent dreamers of evil devices. Love your work! Love and more love always.

Women have a choice whether to play the Victim card or reclaim their true identity and power. This card dealt, for all those TRUE Queens reading. X

Women have more strength and power within .... than some realise. Mirror Mirror on the Wall. There is a good and strong Queen in all women, it takes some looking deep within to find it....and then to hold onto it and wield it with conviction and power.

All women are Queens and should be treated with respect and honesty. The ones that turned / turn bad, you will discover if looked at holistically, are lacking love and respect and honesty....but LOVE, plays the biggest card in that area of downfall. I will take your Romantic Warrior title and pass you Black King Genius.

For me, this poem is hardcore, but personally, my thoughts on our leaders and the world at present. These are my thoughts alone, every reader will interpret in their own way and reach their own conclusion. The corruption has been there right from the beginning of time. Was there an Apple and was it entirely Eve's fault? "IT" sits hidden amongst those who are at the very top of the food chain - and that is where The Dark should be exterminated. Thank you for your thoughts on this poem Freddie. Lx

This for my daughter, my two sisters, my nieces and any other woman reading this story. Women hold the true power, strong, capable, resilient. If I was to collaborate here, I would initially be reaching out to a strong female writer. Read all my further comments below, for further clarification.

Thank you July. I am aware of both poets who are exceptional. However I will reach out when I have heard from the women who read this poem and/or other poems of mine. I am interested in communication, either on page of poem, or in my email with their thoughts, their interest in collaboration, if any, and their concept for the poem. I am off page for a week or two. I will read comments and emails - and I will respond. I look forward with great interest to the exchange of thoughts and ideas.

While this story/poem was inspired by my research of the current events playing out in our world at present, together with the escalation in conspiracy theories,it might be of interest to look into the underlying psychology of who are the true characters of strength, who hold the fate of the world in their hands, yet are much maligned and looked down upon as inconsequential and mere playthings...in this story?

Your point taken on, however these females (you mention), all had their strengths, just as men in their position had strengths and weakness...but they certainly had power, corrupted more than likely with the assistance of men surrounding them. Even 'Source'/or God may be female. This consideration here of mine is far removed from the Bible. Women do have strength which has been very much maligned historically & sociopolitically, in a number of areas. Women have definitley been disregarded and overlooked in political spheres and in the Boardrooms and places of power of this world. The "Church" is another prime example of that dynamic, with very few women leading the church, with particular emphasis on Roman Catholicism. Of course, there is only one GOD, but then, that is "my" belief not opinion ...this is not about GOD and the Bible. This dialogue - is about Women and their strength to progress through positive collaboration and to LEAD. Later. Off page. I can feel a blog coming on.

The characters who possess the underlying strength of character, who are holding the power literally in their hands to save the world (in this story), are the Women. Never judge a book by it's cover...somewhere within that Beige, true power is hidden.

How much do you write together? There is a lot hidden inside that you gradually remove,this art gives you the most different identity. You really write very well Leanne Lovejoy.

I haven't had the pleasure of 'collaborating' with any other poet here yet. But thank you Kishan. I just like and have a need to write and when I am intrigued by something I have read, researched, or someone has said something to me in discussion, or I have dreamed or seen a vision in a reflection in a mirror, that may or may not be myself ;) .... I write a story. I have been writing since I was 9 years old and will continue to write until I die. Everything and everyone fascinates me and I am continually reading, discussing and learning...as we all are with the current state of the world at present and the people who lead us...and what we are learning there ain't pretty. Thank you for reading Kishan. Keep writing.

Your strength in spirit knows no boundaries. Your strength with your pen is just as limitless. Automatic words keep pace with your thoughts and you share them line by line in perfect unison. Keep strong Leanne.

Herr Swartz. Vulnerability is a strength. I am one of the strongest people you will know. Thanks for your friendship. It is all rather sulphurous at present, but "GOOD" will always overcome that putrid smell of evil and darkness. On another note, every one has different dimensions to them, my motto is - "you don't have to be perfect, as long as the things you do are real and the shite you say ain't fake". I am certain you fall into that category.

this dung lit realm of shade has happened many times throughout history and each time the voices cry out, the heart of man has been this way since Cain and Able, Evil, yes, man is both evil and righteous and each side wallows in extremes, " no one knows when the son of man will come"Mark 13:32: this generation grew up with evil, it soon will pass, the next generation has bonded in common cause and I believe will change the world...Beige is a neutral color...before the war...

I can only 'imagine' the psychological damage burnt into the hearts of those children in the Middle East and Syria. I pray for below, hoping it is not too late. x

The people of the world watch their screens and wait. Some kind of sick neutral. This is all too real, but it has become like a movie for most. My thoughts are with those suffering for so long and our strong and courageous troops who defend us (ALL allies and American), all medical teams in the field and those in less fortunate regions. Particularly the children.

You have done your research...A well-written poem indeed...You wrote it like a movie...All the best lovejoy...

My intuition says you will keep writing Arturo.Your readers and your friends here would miss your magic very much. I know you are evolving as a writer 'big time'. Keep writing; through your writing you will find the keys to lock / unlock obstacles and open new doors. Your friend, Leanne, who is no poet, just likes to write / create...for people to think, escape, maybe enjoy. Thank you...for encouraging me to continue writing. x

Ha! I keep telling people I'm "no" poet... It's all rather intriguing all this conspiracy, particularly when you look at the dynamics in our world at present. I think the viper nest at the top needs to be taken out. You on the other hand my friend, seem to be a "poet" and a very good one at that...Thank you for the compliment.
