“He who scrawls on shithouse walls,
rolls his shit in little balls,
and they that read these lines of wit,
eat these little balls of shit.”
Author unknown, but like Kilroy he certainly got around.
I’m quite fond of analogy and the above quote
reminds me that many politicians speak nothing
but shit, and too many of us who listen to it
fucking eat it up.
“The pebble drops in the source water of the shallow
stream. Its course is deflected. It goes down this valley
instead of that; it meets streams from these mountains
instead of those; in a now unavoidable compulsion the
creek must eat its way through sand and thorny areas
and never know the rich verdure a few miles away.
A certain sort of river, composed of certain elements,
arriving by a certain route, flows at last into the eternity of the sea.
It is all one to the sea, but who can say that it is a matter of indifference to the river?”
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Profound words, when I read them the thought came
to mind that perhaps they help in explaining me to myself. Do they speak to you out there?, I would not
be surprised. Islander.
