Strikethru

Napoleon in the Wilderness-Max Ernst 1941
Napoleon in the Wilderness-Max Ernst 1941

Eyes to the sky but noses ground down
Right coming up soon another year 2020
Visibility is poor it’s not getting any clearer
Skies are overcast the deluge is approaching
The water is rising temperature climbing
We can dream of a Third Summer of Love
But it will be just another Festival of Hate
Ah well fuck it anything to release energy
A force field of unruly total abandon
In time we will have to beat a hasty retreat
Escape and fortify the cave in the cliff-face
Welcome to my world girl you’re in my hut now
Grunt grunt a little louder I can’t hear you
Jump jump a little higher how low can you go
Down on your knees but please don’t pray
Though I would like to be in your thoughts
As much as you pollute my dreams phantasies
There is no salvation up above only submission
But we can strike on thru to the other side
Storm paradise and lay siege to pleasure

  2. Relevant and fantastical all at once. Love the energy of the poem and the shades of Blake striking thru to paradise. The Ernst painting does suit it perfectly. Such a wonderfully bizarre piece. You hold a candle to Max by association!

      1. The tricky question of personal freedom and its consequences. If freedom doesn’t lead to happiness what’s the point, right? His making Catherine unhappy would have led to his own unhappiness and so on. But that’s another can of worms
