Sovereign


sov11.

To be sovereign:
………profile-resilient, struck
………………from the mint.

Lord and mistress over one’s ethos,
………instincts, underlying motives.

Equity and Justice supporting,
then nourishing, each well-
………………fashioned homestead.

Fair, unimpeded circulation
………of vast nature’s abundance.

To be ultimately sovereign then:
………profile-resilient;

distributing harvests with
your opening palms from

………………the magisterial tent.

2.
Kings stockpiling gold against
………the common man;

later duped by the far more
duplicitous mercantile-traders.

Hearth-companion, will their
vile machinations decimate
………our warm collaborations?

Working up to god’s righteous,
angry stupor hilariously aided by
………vine-must of the twice-born.

This hive’s infra-structure
buckles; their top-heavy hegemony
continues to brandish its
………………mortgaged assets.

Below, harassed worker-bees
will be randomly excommunicated
into the digitally mute
………………………waste-zones.

Self-reliance, it appears, will
be your scaffold-lift to an

………unwitnessed martyrdom.

 sov3

 

3.
A just measure for the means
of distribution; no need to descend
………into worship of metal then.

There is so much abundance, so
………little equity when sharing it out.

Is their money really ewes and
rams? or is it as durable as
……………………mineral gold?

Should it not really be akin to
the vegetable and, in time,
gradually wither so their gombeen-
Shylock-Scrooge can’t hoard it
………………away against you?

Dissociation: the will to seek
good; the praxis always going
……………………awry.

Most souls are dramatically frozen
within their CAD-CAM stage-sets.

The rest: a greased arena for a
clandestine game of immense
………roulette with nations being bled;

having, for countless generations,
………to cough up for it.

 sov4

 

4.
Progressive?

A pathological myth propagated
within the collegiate system
enabling Usury to proliferate:

lice-infested sore spreading on
the supine commonweal corpus;

the festering positively kinetic.

Culture is that which remains of
one’s education when you’ve
………forgotten all the paraphernalia;

Education is when one chooses
to contemplate the live details
rather than accepting dead
………………  ………generalizations.

To clean up money; and to know
………our cosmic humanity despite

being within this mortgaged realm
………inhabited by two disparate

………………………nations.

 sov5

5.
Your consummate work-ethic
compromised, utterly
………………………desensitized.

Your beautiful energy
cunningly commodified,
………o my hearth-companion.

As I agonizingly watch the
supreme rose-bush beneath your
exquisite whiteness burn even
………………stronger still;

never, by this word, to be
quenched or, unknowingly,

……………put out.

 sov6

 

6.
Feed and clothe the people,
………the root injunction.

The volitional poet as prime
minister then when the word
………metamorphoses into action?

Fable can be a social redemptress
………when so inclined?

Propaganda a social demon
delivered within that polluted
mouthful of air, oppressing

……………nation upon nation?

Poverty, in any milieu, is
unnecessary; but a “necessary
evil” when Usury is hoodwinked
into hidden thrones of
………power and triumph?

Puritans abetting the hoarding
………of financiers;

the Reformation unwittingly
forging the cloisters for

………………Mammon-worship.

sov7

7.
National sovereignty inheres
in the right of a country to issue
………and/or control its own credit;

personal sovereignty is the
ability to possess one’s selfhood
with equity, balance,
………………foresight.

The minotaur of the hollow state
bellows recalcitrant; he’s the
poet-scapegoat who takes the
curse which should brand the
………………usurers.

Hard times for poetry then; hard
times grafting a livelihood in an
apparatus of pecuniary
………………living-death.

We need to break bread a little
………more often, hearth-companion;

before our humanity dissipates or,
even worse, becomes a bestial
………………………afterbirth.

Leviathan genuflecting to a gold-
standard calf or some tableau

………………equally as hideous.

 sov8

8.
Imperialism is a scaly Geryon
destroying its own producers’
crops so it can extort all its
………colonies’ cereal-produce.

Fraudulent, swaggering beast
smearing its own faithful
workers with such
………………unnecessary shit;

so Empire erects its pillars of
presumptuous krypton out of
………such profit-making excrement.

Mortgaged to the hilt, its pilot-
usurers (from Threadneedle
Street) sit buttered between
Geryon’s viscous shoulder-
………………blades; descending into

Malebolge for some final
………Dantescan reckoning.

These pouches of putrefaction
gape; those venomous incisors
now unhinge for Satanic
……………………services:

to be fully exacted, rendered
ex nihilo with inordinate interest

………………accrued, accruing.

 sov9

9.
Charles and William both duped
at their boudoir casement-doors
………into letting usury in.

Clio’s a gagged marionette clutching
a mortgaged rifle with her anus
bleeding as a result of these
………………‘transactions’.

Surly monarchs surely preferable
………to these insidious plutocrats?

Take me back to when Europa was
in her May-time: Eleanor, Henry and
Louis; with Ventadorn and Daniel
unfurling their song-brocades in

………………Courts of Amour.

Long before Jupiter deceived her
in shape of a bull; long before
Mammon was inexplicably deified
………within her corridors of power.

Botticelli prophetically painting
“La Calunnia”; Amsterdam and
………London wielding double-money;

Justitia struck profoundly dumb.

 sov10

 

10.
To reclaim our sovereignty,
to bring back the Just Price
needs sublime, vorticist
………………………synergy.

Another renaissance of
understanding: nuanced and
………………unsellable.

The design of a new temple,
unmarketable, but free for
everyone to enter within and/
or without: holy, beyond
religion, emanating all the
………………………mysteriums.

Six wings that create currents
of luminous air; as we, the
mobile, experience that
………spiritual metamorphoses;

are ethically, economically
transformed; for all things that

………………are, are in flux.

sov11

11.
Dishevelled, diachronic 21st
Century poet: more Villon
(marginalized) than
………………Dante (exiled).

Hamstrung by this economic
apparatus overhanging rather
than a personal foible or
………………inveterate failing.

Humiliation’s a purgatory of
dilated pupils, unnecessary
bureaucratic burdens and an

ultimate gibbet of unrequited
love that will send his arse
lower than the dripping caduceus

………………of his pen.

 

 sov12

 
12.
To be sovereign then;
profile-resilient, acquiring the
dynamic patience of the gods.

To maintain durability whilst
remaining in flux: a paradox
worthy only of those artists of
………most supreme balance.

To recognise that humans are
communal beings, sociable
creatures, economic co-partners
in orchard and market-house;

bio-spiritually producing in
accord with intelligent Nature’s
………………………fruitfulness.

Ancestral homestead not a
perpetually mortgaged leasehold,
………nor a collective farm.

To be ultimately sovereign then;
lord over one’s own intuitions,
………concepts, passions;

distributing harvests with
opening palms from an ever-

abundant baladachin.
