Là dans la brume la bataille s'accélère

Dans sa lutte marc s'écroule dans la poussière

Consommé par une force meurtrière


Ses forces le quittent, il défaille.

Mais du désespoir jaillit la volonté.

Le jeune soldat songe à sa fille


Il se relève pour elle, il tombera pour elle

Mais par un coup de vent il chancelle

Ses ailes brisées d'une balle dans la poitrine.


Il murmure son prénom; "Eline"

The Incredible Machine

A dawn of advance
The world was ready,
The people weren't
And their children heaved through years of framework,
It was progress...


Alas the good deeds
People found new needs,
They set out to reach
The things they would teach...


A night to recall
The battle was won,
The war neverending
Upon it they weaved a special network,
It was useless...


A spun web of fate
Of gaiety and hate,
Forgotten the days,
Of the mortal ways...


An eclipse of minds
Oiled engines and souls,
Young, riotous rage
And they wanted blood for joy and fireworks,

A March Through Snow In Wartime

The people march,


A great crowd clothed in tatters.


They march hour after hour,


Across barren ice lands,


And past corpses and carcasses,


Famished and frozen as night falls,


And the march shows no signs of ending.


Many stumble, never to get up again.


They lie in the snow, forgotten,


Dying under the night sky


As Europe destroys itself with war,


And nations weep and mourn for their sons.


They march.

The Pianist

The pianist lifts his arms,


His hands come crashing down.


The bass notes growl, an ominous crescendo,


Warning of civil unrest and tension,


And of a Europe about to go to war.


The audience watches,


Hoping, praying that war will not come.


The pianist pauses, a brief silence that pulsates with uncertainty.


He lifts his wrists again, resuming the menacing trill in the bass,


His fingers working furiously as the growl grows in volume


And the temperature rises in the auditorium.


The audience stares.


A pause follows, and then a lament,


The work of a composer weeping for a lost love, for days gone by,


For his country, perhaps, and for his compatriots.


The pianist continues to play.

Caligula Wars Against Neptune

*Short Poems


Caligula led the Roman

army to the sea

to fight Neptune who dwelt

beneath ocean waves' swell.


After soldiers speared

the waters

Caligula declared a win,

and seized as tribute

caskets full of seashells.

Reasons Californians Should Vote Out Feinstein




Reasons Californians Should Vote Out Feinstein



In November, some reasons to vote for Kevin DeLeon to be the next senator from California


  Feinstein is a war profiteer, a war promoter, an animal abuser who helped pass AETA. She has helped funnel over a billion $ in govt. contracts to her 3rd husband Richard Blum


Dianne Feinstein has supported the illegal immoral violence of virtually every one of the 17 armed invasions and bombings
of other countries.

1 Dianne Feinstein's record re animals contains secret areas. She was a cosponsor of AETA
2 Her husband Richard Blum has for many years been a regent of the University of California. For
several years he was chairman of the board of the regents. He also furthered animal torturing research
at many Univ of California schools.
3 Blum is on the board of the vivisecting American Cancer Society.
4 At Sutro Blum led a partnership that acquired Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for $8 million In four years he sold it making a 500% profit on the backs of suffering beaten elephants and other circus animals.
5. All the heinous illegal wars for whose appropriations she has voted have killed trillions
of animals killed by bombs, tanks, abandonment, being seized and eaten etc.
6. The vaccinations she works to make compulsory are not vegetarian or vegan and are have lethal side effects. They are a major source of revenue for multinational drug companies.

Feinstein was instrumental in the sale of San Diego naval land to a Chinese company.

Feinstein is opposed in the US to assault weapons but has voted to send $ to the Netanyahu regime for purchase of weapons
including assault weapons.
Dianne Feinstein opposes assault weapons in the US, but facilitated getting them to Israelis Over 2/3 of California Democratic convention delegates oppose her

Feinstein is said to have violated the law in funneling government contracts to her husband's companies.
The US government awarded to a company (Perini) controlled by Blum. URS Corp, in which Blum had a substantial stake, bought EG&G, a leading provider of technical services and management to the U.S. military, from The Carlyle Group in 2002; EG&G subsequently won a $600 million defense contract.

In 2009 it was reported that Feinstein introduced legislation to provide $25 billion in taxpayer money to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, a government agency that had recently awarded her husband's real estate firm, CB Richard Ellis, what the Washington Times called "a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms."

Feinstein will be 85 this summer. She is rarely filmed getting in and out of her committee chair.. but it is a slow process.

At the Democratic convention earlier in the year, Feinstein got less than 1/3 of the delegates' support.

Feinstein's main opponent is the popular and principled Kevin de Leon https://www.kevindeleon.com

'Richard Blum, a billionaire war profiteer, is also a regent at the University of California, where he pushed for harsh measures against students exercising free speech. During debate over the adoption of new censorship measures against intolerance, Blum cited long conversations with Feinstein and their mutual belief that students criticizing Israel “ought to have a dismissal or a suspension from school.” ' His wife has labeled criticism of Israel antiSemitism, which is akin to labeling Trump critics antiAmerican.

Feinstein has aggressively worked for compulsory vaccination of nonvegetarian nonvegan toxic vaccines containing mercury etc.

Feinstein's political career was accelerated when San Francisco Mayor Moscone and Harvey Milk were murdered. She became SF mayor then. Richard Blum is her third husband.

This article was prepared by a populist activist, a former California resident, with no connection to any California campaign.
California Democratic Party declined to endorse Feinstein

Mini-Beast of the East

Mini-Beast of the East

By jfarrell


Solemnly we announce

That we have conclusive evidence

That the recent cold weather

Is a Russian attack!


We have known, for years,

Putin’s research into using

Satellites to manipulate the weather



We have evidence;

Here we present the video….

Putin, barechested and looking so manly,

Standing atop a mountain and blowing the clouds at us


Britain demands an explanation!

…or we’ll take away your gym membership!

We call on friends around the world (both of you)

To stand united with us.

you've had the star wars programme, this is the ice wars programme

The JellyBaby Uprising

By jfarrell


It started at the Merrow Street corner shop.

I was just walking past, when it exploded

And, out of the debris, emerged

A 20ft tall, multicoloured JellyBaby.


It outstretched its arms,

Leaned back his head

And gave a cry of fury

A chorus, as if a thousand voices, crying simultaneously;


“No more cruelty! No more eating us feet first!”

And with giant strides, several buses long,

Off it went, marching down the street,

Towards the Aylesbury Estate.


Choruses from miles around,

Hundreds? Thousands?

Arose and blew in on the breeze

“Feet first! No More!”


I saw 4 of them tear the Aylesbury Estate apart;

It didn’t take long;

I and some several dozen survivors

Are hiding in the Kiln, in Burgess Park.


Safe, for now.

Before the internet and the TV went silent…

It seemed to be worlwide…

The JellyBabies revolted.


They are in control.

“Who is she?” The policeman asked as he stood next to her feet.

“Just another homeless woman who died here in the street.”


“Does she have any friends or family?” he asked reeling from the smell.

“Not that anyone knows,” came the answer…”not that anyone can tell.”


“I hear she was a nurse in Vietnam”…another person said stopping to stare.

“She never said but I always wondered…what happened to her there.”


"But that war ended over 40 years ago!” the young policeman said,

“Surely there’s another reason this woman lies here dead!”


“There has to be another explanation…there’s got to be something more…

How can this old homeless woman be a casualty of that war?”


A man in tattered khakis limped over to the crowd

He saluted the homeless woman then stood up tall and proud…


“We hear a lot about men like me and Vietnam.” he said 

“The horrors…the way we were treated…and it’s all true…

but forgotten are the he nurses who took care of us…

and the traumas they went through.” 


“There is a painful truth about war…how its memories transcend…

“and just because a war is over…doesn’t mean the battle ends."


“Some of us can’t forget the agony and our pain…we can’t conceal.

“In some of us the suffering continues…some wounds will never heal.”


“Who was she another passerby asked?”

The policeman’s stood up proud and resolute.

She was a woman…a nurse…a soldier!” he said…


and he gave her a salute.
