Search Your Feelings
Though long ago, and far away
My love for cosmic battles is here to stay
The child within thanks you George
You put the adolescent me through an emotional forge
The adult me though no fan of CG glitter
Does not feel in the least bitter
I love this galaxy from core to far
Though I still, and always will hate Jar Jar

Put it all on Red!
I present to you Comrade Laski’s tale
In modern times it’d read [spoiler alert] epic fail
But this was the sixties/seventies
The decade of strange amenities
Laski was another American Red
This time even his own Comrades thought him better dead
Laski & Co backed the Chairman Mao
To the Bourgeoisie they said `Kapow!`
But Groups for Peoples Armed Defence
Cost quite a lot in dollars and pence
But Laski had a plan that would turn the tide
He’d go to Vegas and let it all ride!
As we know Lady Luck is quite fickle
Even to those shaded by the Hammer & Sickle
To his eternal regret
He lost every bet
And showing judgement quite poor
Raided the party treasury and bet more and more
But thought the wheel did spin and spin
He still could not win
It wasn’t just the dice that gave him the snake eye
He was denounced by a proletarian cry
But after failing at roulette and committing such impropriety
He damn well refused to try his luck at the Russian variety
He reached for his gun,

Literature
By the Rockets Red Glare
In the year of our Lord Seventeen Seventy Six
Things were going on in the Imperial sticks
Out in the Colonies Thirteen
They declared People Supreme
And birthed a new nation into the mix
It seems they all wished to be free
And showed great disrespect to tea
To protest King’s Largess
They formed a Congress
And bombarded His Majesty with a plea
Having fail to impress upon jurisprudence
Grabbed muskets an declared independence
Fought Redcoat an Hessian
Who made quite the Messian
And forced the King to commit costly vengeance
From Georgia to the tips of Maine
And funding from France and Spain
They built an army
And behaved calmly
And marched in sun, frost and rain
It is more than fair to mention
They did better than expectation
Though for a time
Not in battle line
Such was the cause of their desperation
Lacking in the tools of convention
They gave plots more than a mention
Going where Eagles Dare
By sailing the Delaware
They inflicted a state of exasperation
Which lead to the withdraw

`Schrodinger: A Pillar of Internet Communism`
Communism appears to have a very serious and long standing problem despite having a very basic definition, -`A society without classes and states organised by Communes (hence the name Communism)`- and having adherents all over the world ensuring even the basics are translated into most languages, time and again most people including its alleged adherents don't seem to grasp what it actually is, leading to all sorts of strange conclusions and antics.
This is nothing new or unique mind, quite a few people describe themselves as Capitalist despite not owning any actual Capital.
But oddly enough the internet age which has made access to information much easier and quicker has made this strange phenomenon even worse. For example let's take a look at the comments for this deviation it appears to have stimulated quite a heated debate amongst some so called Comrades. One in particular stood out and no its not the

Literature
Surely Something has Gone Awry?
There was a time not long ago, when we marched in step and line
To usher in the glorious new time,
When we strived to free every slave and serf
In every corner of this rotten earth,
It mattered not who called the shot
So long as they weren’t a dirty Trot.
But things are no longer sweet
We’ve drunk deep from the well of defeat,
Now there’s an awful rattle
And the redrawing of the lines of battle,
Once there was the workers and the Bourgeoisie
Now its Nationalists and Conspiracists and the damn Nazi.
Not everything’s changed though
Thousands worship Mao, Hoxha and even Uncle Joe,
Though I wonder how they can sleep
With the company they keep,
It seems that now that the Comrades are few
Some have started to blame the Jew.
It seems acquainting the Fascist with the pavement
Is a forgotten statement,
Others still hate the modern Boxwallah
They’ll gladly line up behind the Ayatollah,
Others yet so blinded in their hatred of the Yank
Will champion the Russian tank.

Modern Habitual Disenchantment: A Review
Modern Habitual Disenchantment or MHD is a collection of poems by Joshua Deeds AKA DurtyDeeds93, it’s a collection of free verse, with at least one entry embrace qualifying as short prose.  It’s on Googleplay and priced at $1. The poems are broken down into three collections connected loosely by subject matter. Those collections are Pain, Disillusioned and Anger. There are common themes and language in all three but each has a different target and so offers some variety.
Pain:
The poems collected under pain are appropriately painful to read, I mean that in a good way.  They share a narrative of a relationship breakdown -possibly more than one- from the point of view of one of the survivors, and it does feel like the character (possibly the author, the details and vivid language seem to be coming from a personal place) is surviving a traumatic

Err yeah the length of absence just grows and grows. A lot has happened since my last journal which was nearly a year ago would be cause for concern if that was not the case. I'm back in full time employment which explains most of the absences, and I've finished most of my extra curricular hobbies. I've completed transcribing Conquered City, and started on another book The Pink Triangle by Richard Plant. I've also completed several online Esperanto courses including the Duolingo one, so Mi povas parolas Esperanton. Sed mi bezonas plu praktiko.

Its an interesting language and I look forward to progressing with it. Other than that I've been doing quite a lot of reading, I managed to finish all five volumes of Les Miserables which I quite enjoyed, the musicals don't do it justice, though they certainly try. I was surprised by how much the 2013 one crammed in, but it is five volumes worth of material so something had to go.

Gxis poste!

Hello there, how are you? I'm a part time writer of both factual articles and the odd social commentary, and the rest of my time is divided up between Boxing and tinkering with some amateur fiction.

Hey~~

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
