Facing the book

Look but don't see! a new World is being made its fabric is interwoven with a strength of inconsistency It teaches in pre-schools that Run from 9 am until 6 with The children of other lost children who are Called parents. 'Parents’. It’s a useful Word!! in this useless world. That has re-modelled and fetes the Carnal old realities of blood Lusting empires of Olympian Depths.! Trans-ported to Roman orgies to be impressed upon its young captives as their elders run the gamut of ‘endless hours in a A bean counters paradise.' Dealing with the cobbled together mantra of consumer ideologies as false idols strut across energy Wasting screens there are wars, wars on waste wars on want, on pollution, on many many things. These are the Rumours! also there are real wars There are earthquakes famines but the end is not yet! viruses in the computers A virus on the flesh, upon the Men, who have become lovers of themselves. ©Joe Maverick 31-3-2020

So did my best Trying to speak to the near past, present, and into eventuality's

Thank you for your thoughts, and reply Phyl; it's age schmage Though as all I want to do is say look out to the young who are Always the target of every 'new wave movement' yet when its All boiled down they are just counters in a game to make Others richer or more powerful. Same old same old.'
