WAKE UP. STOP BA A A A IN. THE HUMAN SHEEP ARE FOLLOWING ITS STUPID CAPITALIST SHEPHERDS TO EXTINCTION. ALONG WITH IT WE ARE TAKING EVERY SPECIES OF WILDLIFE. WE HAVE REDUCED FARM ANIMALS TO MERE MACHINES FOR OUR OWN USE AND YET THEY STILL HAVE EMOTIONS AND NEEDS WHICH ARE JUST IGNORED SO WE CAN CONSUME, CONSUME, CONSUME. I AM ASHAMED TO BE A HOMO SAPIEN. THE MOST BRUTAL BEAST OF ALL.
EVERYWHERE I GO I SEE DEAD PEOPLE. THE EYES ARE DEAD. I SPEAK TO THEM AND THEY DON’T ANSWER. I SING AND CALL OUT IN THE STREET AND PEOPLE JUST PRETEND NOT TO HEAR OR LOOK AT ME LIKE I’M MAD. THE HUMAN RACE ARE FAST BECOMING ZOMBIES. OBEYING, OBEYING, OBEYING, SILENTLY, YET WE ARE ALL BORN WITH BRAINS. IF YOU DON’T WAKE UP SOON THEY WILL HAVE YOU CHIPPED AND SWITCH YOU OFF ANYWAY. WE ARE HEADING FOR EXTINCTION, AND TAKING EVERY SPECIES WITH IT. CAPITALISM HAS PROVED TO BE NOTHING BUT A DESTROYER. STAND UP AGAINST IT. REFUSE TO BUY BUY BUY, CONSUME, CONSUME, CONSUME, OR THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT. YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING TO CONSUME, NOR WILL YOUR CHILDREN AND THERE WILL BE NO WATER. EVEN ZOMBIES CAN’T LIVE ON FRESH AIR ALONE. BEWARE THE SHEEP THAT ARE DOING THE HERDING. THEY ARE WORSE THAN THE SHEPHERD. THE ‘YOU SHOULD, YOU MUST NOT, YOU CAN’T’ BRIGADE. THOSE THAT WITH ABSOLUTELY NO AUTHORITY TRY TO TELL OTHERS WHAT TO DO. I AM AN ANARCHIST. I IGNORE THEM. THOSE SHEEP. THEY ARE BRAINDEAD. THE HUMAN RACE IS BLINDLY WALKING INTO A TRAP OF ITS OWN MAKING. THERE IS NO WILDLIFE LEFT AND MOST OF THE EARTH IS COVERED WITH FARM ANIMALS WE HAVE TURNED INTO MACHINES FOR OUR OWN USE. . YET WE HAVE NOT TURNED OFF THEIR EMOTIONS. THEY STILL HAVE EMOTIONAL NEEDS AND BONDING NEEDS WHICH WE JUST IGNORE. BECAUSE WE ARE SO NICE AND CARING. WAKE UP. WAKE UP. WAKE UP. EVERYONE IS ASLEEP . DAVID ICKE HAS BEEN SAYING THIS FOR YEARS. HE HAS BEEN PROVED RIGHT OVER AND OVER. MORE AND MORE CONSUMPTION IN A FINITE EARTH MEANS DESTRUCTION. NOT JUST FOR HOMO SAPIENS BUT EVERY OTHER SPECIES, MOST OF WHICH HAVE GONE ALREADY. WE ARE ANIMALS. WE ARE NO DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ANIMALS AT HEART. WE ARE MAMMALS. THE ILLUSION THAT WE ARE SOMEHOW SUPERIOR IS EXACTLY WHAT IS DESTROYING THE EARTH.
I was a member of the Waterfront Writers in Plymouth for many years and won the Jan Cutter Prize for my short story ‘Caged’. I have other work published in their anthologies. I have won prizes for my poetry and also helped write and produce two shows for Symbiotic Theatre’s ‘Don’t Mention The Gorilla’ project. This was set up to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health. These productions were performed at The Barbican Theatre. I have poetry, sketches and short stories published in two books stemming from this project.
