Old News

March 27, 2022



Besides being an oxymoron

All news is old news

Only the names have been changed

To protect the corporations

From the illusion

That it is not regurgitating

Previously consumed information

Otherwise its consumers

Would arise from their slumber

Revolt and demand new news

Instead of steady stories of

“WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS, (VIRUSES) HOMELESS, RECESSION, DEPRESSION, WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS. (VIRUSES)”

“WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS, (VIRUSES) HOMELESS, RECESSION, DEPRESSION, WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS. (VIRUSES)”

– Bill Hicks

The “News” could broadcast, print. inform

That there are no sides to a sphere

Any notion of East, North, West, South

Are illusions made-up by bipedal earthlings

To contaminate craniums with crapola

Strip individual souls of their sanctity

If the sphere is spinning on a rotated axis

Millions of miles per hour while

Hurling through the vacuum of space

Does it really “matter” which part

May be “up or down”, “left or right “

Since it is in the Goldilocks zone

Supporting life between its

Molten core and eggshell fragile atmosphere

One of trillions of other stars and planets

That go on infinitely forever

Oh wait, there is no money in that. Ooopsie

How could it possibly suggest then

That we are all of one consciousness

Experiencing itself subjectively miraculously

Through the sensations of unexplainable

Senses of taste, touch, sight, smell, hearing

Wasted filling empty opinions about “sides”

Who is conquering who seeking power

Over its own self and better interest

Oh wait, there is no money in that. Ooopsie

Best continue with distractions of deception

“It’s always one bloody war after another, and one knows the news is all lies anyway.”

– “Julia”

– “1984”

//

WAR IS PEACE

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

– “1984”

Nearly 75 years later
We have that notion down pat

“1984” was written in 1948

How can anyone have alliances
Opposing enemies if you are in
A constant state of flux of knowing
Not knowing who your enemy is

Oceania has always been at war
With Eurasia or was it East Asia
Better flip on the “old” news


Can you even “Imagine”* the possibilities

If we succumbed to an awareness that

Earth is a birth mother to all its children and

Wish they wouldn’t fight amongst themselves

Only slightly changing the narrow narrative

Between knee jerk emotional pull topics

WAR, FAMINE, DEATH, AIDS, (VIRUSES) HOMELESS, RECESSION, DEPRESSION, RACE, GENDER, POLITICS, NATIONALITY, FLAGS, GUNS, RIGHTS, ABORTION, RELIGION, SCANDAL, CELEBRITY, WEALTH, ENVIRONMENT, ETC ETC ETC……..

“Then you look out your window – (crickets chirping) – where’s all this shit going on, man?

Ted Turner is making this shit up.”

– Bill Hicks


“Imagine”


Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…. Aha-ah…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can

(If you can’t take it with you
It is not yours to begin with)

No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

– John Lennon



The Noon New News

“Today a young man on acid (no acid necessary, breathing, will suffice) realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively.

There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.

Here’s Tom with the Weather.”

– Bill Hicks


Isn’t the sunniest of your disposition
Related more to your outlook than
Atmospheric conditions of heat and light?

Now, that would be NEW NEWS.


“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin
