Polly Ticks says … A Canadian is to be the new Governor of the Bank of England. I can think of no other country that would shun its own nationals for a major post like this.

Guru Tony says … When the Church of England recently voted against women bishops nearly half of the ‘no’ votes came from women. This is not a gender thing, but Scriptural.

Prof Isaac Galistein says … Britain has seen massive flooding in the last week. This is what happens when too many flood plains are built on and flood defences force the water to fewer outlets.

FUTURE ZONE

PLANET YEARN: When StarDrive was invented
they yearned to reach the planet 20 light
years away. It offered so many resources;
and even though communication was near
impossible, they went in their millions.
Indeed, as soon as enough had left, the
species that had enslaved them went on to
colonise where they had come from.
Yearning made Capitalist planets so easy
to conquer.

Creativity
When ideas flow we ride
A storm of brain waves
***
REPROACH: After scanning Earth the
alien declined first contact. Intelligent?
What was thought to be doll-like androids
turned out to be celebrities.
***
I want it, need it
I have to have it now, but …
Forgot what ‘it’ is
***
THE EYE: The metronome beat out the
riff of time whilst the all-seeing eye
watched, lest we fall out of the riff.
The system was not perfect, for when it
blinked, so many fell, attempting to
catch up for eternity. We see them
briefly, translucently. And yes, they
may as well be dead.

Pappa Razzi says … As the BBC faces its greatest crisis, lets hope its chairman, Chris Patten – the last Governor of Hong Kong – does not repeat that trend. The BBC is the only real challenger to commercial broadcasting.

Guru Tony says … Justin Welby is to be the new Archbishop of Canterbury, leading the Anglican Church. An ex-corporate oil man with an interest in banking, is Big Biz openly moving into religion now?

Prof Isaac Galistein says … Ash Dieback disease is threateniung Ash trees in the UK. The latest invasion into the UK from overseas, I sometimes feel nature itself is being ‘globalised’, with standard models arising instead of diversity.

RATTLERS’ TALE

MARRIAGE: ‘Marriage is anti-
evolutionary,’ said the scientist. ‘The
gene pool is enriched by spreading our
seed.’ The philosopher countered: ‘But
evolution has no order. Man is because
of love.’ The priest said: ‘Will one of
you please say I do.’ The lawyer rubbed
his hands together, greedily.

When I laid down roots
I branched out and soon flourished
Turned over new leaf

GENERIC: The teacher despaired as the 2
kids fought over 2 identical toy monkeys.
‘They’re the same,’ she said. ‘Who stole
my SUV?’ she said later.
***
To write is to live
The writer pondered his role
To live is to write
***
THE PATH: The path looked so inviting.
They began to walk and never stopped as
life took them over. Had they had
binoculars to see the twists and turns,
wouldn’t it have been unfulfilling?
Both their tears and smiles said yes.

Polly Ticks says … Cabinet reshuffle moves UK govt well to the right to satisfy angry Tory backbenchers. Any semblance of mandate with the people has died.

Guru Tony says … Sun Myung Moon – founder of the Unification Church – has died. Over the coming years we’ll find out whether it was a religion or a whim.

FUTURE ZONE

ECHO: As he entered the time anomaly
he heard the echo of his future death.
Pausing, the echo of past courage
urged him on. A strange suicide.
***
Function: to serve man
Androids sit to have dinner
It’s time to serve man
***
TRANSITION: They knew the Intelligence
Transition program failed when the 4th
instructor couldn’t get the lion to
drive & made a transition to cat food.

The Pope Says

Guru Tony reporting …

Pope declares the Jews were not responsible for Jesus’ death. It was the Temple Aristocracy. Yet surely His death was the whole purpose of Christianity? Why blame anyone when it was a requirement?

Dainty ghost is seen
Haunting man to end of days
To tantalize all
