Kali Exorcism

After Allen Ginsberg, and written for the Gaian Remembrance Vigil on 11.11.11


O Kali, shadow-slayer, destroyer of illusion,
I offer up the military-industrial complex,
and all the complexes within me that destroy peace.

Descend, blue-skinned mother, raging, bloodthirsty
fresh from the battlefield of demons, your eight arms
bearing skulls and weapons,

and take this putrid fruit of our violence, slice it open,
expose its flesh and seeds to the light
where they may never grow.

Show us the heads of our prime minister and his henchmen
in the pockets of BAE Systems, touting for business
with morbid regimes and crackpot dictators,

and their arms fairs, where they never ask what’s fair
in selling arms, just rake in the bloodied money,
as our own banks account to cluster-bomb makers.

Come, dark goddess, tear off the veils of rhetoric which conceal
war-mongering deeds in cloaks of respectability; help us
hear deeper than the pre-emptive strikes and collateral damage

ventriloquised by our complacent media,
and demand plain language to describe victims of torture,
rape and murder in the wars they report.

Wild one, let your third eye reflect our own distancing tactics –
how we blind ourselves with science, mutely condoning the prisons
where animals are tested with nerve agents, toxins, explosives.

Open our ears to the howls of all conscripted beasts – Dogs,
Pigeons, Donkeys, Horses; and may we never be like the Camels
whose vocal cords were cut to silence their cries.

O Kali, reveal in us all the places where we let the devil
make his garden – in scorched earth, leafless forests
and among the dumb black stumps of shattered trees.



Helen Moore

    1. I am the Lord, and there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” The Holy Bible. ISAIAH, 45:1-3. 5-7.

      It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that both knowledge and ignorance, light and darkness, peace and war, good and evil, are part of creation, unless we realise that this planet is not yet one of the sacred planets, and therefore this dualism is a temporary manifestation of that fact. Do not worry. The Lord does all these things. And is you read the information offered on share-international.com and pay attention to current events taking place behind the scenes, then you will see that there is a divine Plan, in which all our suffering plays a part, and there will soon come a time when capitalist speculations will come to an end, or at least be restricted to playing a less harmful part in our lives.

      The ironic truth is that poverty is created by those rich, greedy, and selfish capitalists who fear it most. If they had more sense then they would have accepted the changes suggested by Lord Maitreya, instead of censoring the news of His appearance in the world and the fact that He was interviewed by the BBC in the 1980’s when they promised to invite Him to a live television interview. If they had not followed the instructions of the ruling class establishment, which pays them high salaries to be subservient, in that way, then we would have got rid of the Security Council’s veto by now and the UN’s embargoes would have forced Zionists to make peace with their fellow citizens in Israel. We may even have reached a point by now where money, itself, could be abandoned as a coupon for the exchange of material goods and services. All this will only be possible when humanity demands change, and rebels against an economic totalitarian system.

      Don’t worry. This is a time like no other. The money-changers tables shall be turned over, once again – for the last time!
