The Court Jester Becomes Serious
and post notes and photos about your poem like Constance La France.
Rik Mayall, British actor, stand-up comedian, writer,
pioneer of alternate comedy died suddenly,
June 09, 2014 of a heart attack,
or was he murdered ?
In his last film, One by One, he left comedy for the serious,
delivering a chilling message before death,
warning us of a scary revelation,
of a new order destruction.
The film speaks of population reduction- one by one, by one,
natural selection, getting rid of useless eaters,
too many resources being used,
the planet is asleep.
I believe Rik wanted to share this before he was murdered ?
make this film as a warning to humankind,
the world we know is changing,
we see it even now as a reality.
The world's resources cannot sustain the population much longer.
