the spoils, 17/July/17

too much noise again insisting itself into my head….
… I’m going to have to become a hermit…. I’m clearly not thick-skinned enough to let the stupidity of people just wash over me, even though to some extent I do so by screaming inside while remaining externally impassive….

I have a garden full of broken things………

yet another smoker bloody-mindedly oblivious to the harm to themselves and others…. a suicide pact with a match….. stale ashtrays on legs dragging everyone else down with them, disconnecting from that part of their brain that says cigarette butts are in fact litter…. wrinkled bags of parchment smothered in smoke……… of all the vices ever invented it’s up there with the stupidest and selfish………

someone bemoaning the first sight of rain being the death-knell of a summer we didn’t have…….despite two heatwaves already, the general mildness of weather, absence of snow, and very little rain, the extorting cries of “why is my lawn going brown!?”……..

note: as we continue to set the controls for the heart of the sun climate becomes ever-so more than slightly f***** each day summer is not a season of endless blue skies, water-water-everywhere and suntans  (and yes Mr President, climate change is real despite your tiny-tweet-brain)……..

…… now they’ve revealed who the new Doctor Who will be!….. has the world gone completely bonkers!!…… time was we’d find out only when the actual episode is aired….. but not anymore….. ‘spoilers‘ aren’t called ‘spoilers‘ for nothing, because they spoil everything…….deferred gratification?…. what’s that all about………….

……. now, now, NOW! gimme, gimme, gimme NOW!……. the hive-mind….. throw everything at everyone at once and let them sort through the cacophony, the too much noise, without the mental capacity to handle it…………… why bother waiting for Christmas day to open your presents, go for it, climax too soon and be left with…. “now what?”

………………… I think I need a lie down, I may be some time………………………..
