Eurozone Slack

Many people tried to shut me up
When I said it: It's not gonna work
Too much collective work,
Is economy's death cup

Economy is no piece of art
For well-intending public officials
We see now, how it congeals
Into our faces, does it fart

Some chaos, belongs to economy
The individual needs space
To deploy their very own race
Yet, in the Eurozone, not many are free

Boorish people just speak their mind
Insensitive honesty speaks truth
No wishful thinking from a loudmouth
Wishful politics can be truly unkind

Boorish people: Donald Trump
Or, Boris Johnson, may dare jump

Democracy: Also For Rough & Populist Thought

Fake News, Individualism,
Or Nationalism:
Certainly, modern day swearwords
That work like killer swords,
To more polished minds in the prism

Yet, indy thought, away from ism,
Is essential part of any prism
Democracy always has discords
Fake News' words can be needed ugly cords

Belligerence is first real schism
Killing life is final cataclysm
Worst killers use captivating words:
Co-Operation, Green Accords,
To hide destructive Corporatism

Christmas Lunch At The Bank

Three decades ago, luxury
Was keyword at banks' restaurants
Deer, wine, lobster were price worthy
It was approved by accountants

Now, the state owns their business
Christmas lunch is soda and cake
Now, staff enjoy simple finesse
Good times at good price may not be fake

Outside, it's dark and there's no cold
Inside, young people of all creeds,
Enjoy what their plate may behold
Sharing meals belongs to nice deeds

Banks had to learn humility
Sharing now needs simplicity

The most efficient food has gluten
Spaghetti, bread, crouton, have we eaten
It has great taste and fills the belly
Many people get sick, drowsy,
Or enslaved to anything wheaten

Before, beer could be added to gluten
Governments have not forgotten
Clean water and nature's difficulty.
Beer and gluten are efficiency

Once nature's food has been eaten,
Freedom comes, and that will threaten
Corporate and state identity
To some people, it may sound crazy
Serfdom to bad food we've eaten,
Weakens our world -- to some, it's gluten

Money Song III

Governments & their helpers,
Which are banks, insurers,
Had, again, robbed the people

However, are people, sheeple?
What else could the people do
State greed, alas, is very true

A miracle purse opened
Has its bounty an open end?
Its stream must have an origin

The free zone is deeply tucked in
People's magma, for all we know
Only Satan makes a false flow

USA Song

Being contradictory, it's admired & hated
Its secret services are fiercely debated
USA is a positive & negative role model
In friendship, its people are loyal
Great craftsmanship, but some of its food is industrialised

Money Song II

Money is running energy
It only follows passions set free
Admittedly, money has no soul
It's owners have one, plus a goal
A soul is a soul, even when empty

Like blood, money feeds the economy
It's disrespected equally
The other half makes a circle whole
Money is running energy

Between glorifying money
And rejecting it entirely,
Lies a real world where it may roll
Human nature can be controversial
Money is running energy

Another TTIP Song

Self-reliance and privacy
Hinder efficiency
The Suppliers need immediate access
Therefore, you're ordered to lock less

The Suppliers must fill our closets
With food products, water, energy, for people & pets
Then, they must gather your payment
Direct access to your home & money is a requirement

The Suppliers know what you are allowed to need
Because it's on you they feed
Now, you live on state chain -- yet, only in it's domain
Soon, you also & mainly live on TTIP's Supplier chain

Good luck, happy new year

Pacifian Song Against Racism

How to tackle racism?
Correct names are a traditional tool
Then we enter the minefield, the swamp, of -ism
Always someone is left out from the human pool

Dutch Black Pete isn't seen with the same standard
As is Iranian Black Pete
First is slandered, latter wins an award
Not easily, tastes meet

The name 'America' seems a strong symbol
Yet, a true perfectionist
Makes even that name crumble
Skipping Amerigo Vespucci, is truly non-racist

America needs a new, neutral name
A name that doesn't mention any people or person
Then, everyone is left out of fame
I try to suggest a new name that may be spot on

Atlantis is already taken
East India leaves too many a question
Westland is geographically always mistaken
Pacifia would be my suggestion

Native Pacifian
Caucasian Pacifian
Then the first ambiguity: Asian Pacifian ~
The first pitfall for any correct politician

Is it ever possible:
Win the fight against racism
In a way that's plausible
Without ending in dead end-activism

Any answer is appreciated
To this question that keeps many fascinated

Political Gossip

When politicians bring up
A colleague's personal life
They usually drank a vinegar filled cup
To give their mind strife

Bringers of doubtful, unproven news
About others' personal life
Usually share clear news
About their very own strife

Charlie Brooker, lord Ashcroft ~ before unknown
They push forth their own sour faces
Unknowingly, themselves, they've blown
Their own minds ~ as being small places

Even those who don't admire
David Cameron
Still appreciate a strong wire
With relevance, without easy con

My lecture for today would be:
Stick to business
Don't strut your own hate memory
To those who care less

Capitalist Song



Isn't it all just about
The erosion, inflation
Of language, throughout?
Do we remember their definition?

The real definition now of these words
Is simply: Bad person, bad ideology
They function like blunt swords
They lost their threat in etymology

Alas, we forgot that capitalism
Also has a positive, healthy meaning
If we abolish collectivist corporatism
And return property to those concerning

We can improve the political debate
Once we hold matching keys to its gate

Debt Song

We've come to harbor wrong ideas
About what debt and finance are
Real value isn't the same as
Printed sheets without counter ware

The USA understands this
They ignore created money
They know that a present it is
Stupid Europe is not so free

Citizens and businesses
Can lend real value to others
Return theirs, without finesses
Real borrowing rarely smothers

Don't repay created money
Be real now & set yourself free

Money Song

Whatever money is
Property it never is
It has no prejudice, no eyes
Full objectivity makes wise

Money is ignorant
Within an instant,
Money flows to the bulk of money
Its one variation is currency

Could money cure us from racism?
Maybe, because it makes no schism
Is money without real value?
Or is it impartial and true?

All I think, now we have no respect
And that makes us full of neglect

Cher Charlie Hebdo, voici pourquoi les gens sages restent neutres

Surtout, mes condoléances à vous

Ayant dit ça,

Il faut ajouter quelque chose.

Impossible de nier,

Que la France fait part

Des pays autoritaires et patriarcales

En Europe.

Alors vous n'avez aucun droit,

AUCUN, de dire un seul mot

A l'égard de l'Islam

La 'tolérance' et la 'liberté'

De la France sont présentes

Dans mon arbre généalogique:

Tout ceux persécutés par vos ancêtres

Y sont présents.

Et non seulement des français,

Egalement des allemands et portugais.

Alors, s'il vous plait,

Silencez-vous, vraiment. C'est plus beau

Moi aussi, étant néerlandaise,

Je tâche à me taire, à ce sujet.

Les Pays Bas, avec leurs crimes de guerre

En Indonésie, n'ont pas de droit de parler.

Ni de justice,

Et ni de liberté.

Sans doute, vous ne savez pas

Qu'ici, insulter le Roi de ce pays,

Résulte en cinq ans d'emprisonnement

C'est, hélas, la vérité.

Et après tous ses crimes de guerre

En Palestine, Algérie, à l'Iraq, l'Afghanistan,

Les tortures au Guantanamo,

L'Occident n'a aucun droit

De parler. Vraiment!

Pensez toujours à cette verse

De la Sainte Bible:

Ceux sans péchés, jetez la première pierre

Rien ne décrit cette situation-ci mieux.

Et veuillez lire les versets Coraniques

2:178, 17:33 et 60:8

Pour mieux comprendre que ce qu'ont fait

Ces terroristes: c'est contre l'Islam.

Et plus.

Je veux qu'un dessin polémique me fasse penser

Non seulement aux autres, mais aussi à moi

Et surtout, qu'il me fasse (sou)rire.

Et n'oubliez pas la douleur

Des parents de deux frères

Entrés en crime

Et tués à cette route malheureuse.

Je vous salue et vous souhaite le mieux,

Hajar Mulder

Smile on a humorist face
Over US-information misfortune
Who holds the ace
When gloating over a broken balloon

It’s inappropriate to gloat
Over the sanctity of the human body
In the information race, it’s scape goat
Decency is always in custody

I’m glad they spy on EU-politicians
Europe has a long history
Of war crimes on civilians
USA’s rescue role is no mystery

President Vladimir Putin says
Edward Snowden must stop
Releasing US-info that’s not his
Does Putin have a point or a flop?

European states offended Bolivia’s president
To the core, over Edward Snowden
The president morally won at this event
What happened then?

Snowden now wants to stay with the Russians
Russia wants to abandon computers
For reliable German typewriters
Espionage is a world of comedians

It’s too tempting for governments
Not to eavesdrop
At the others’ moments
It’s a sad flop

Reading piles of love letters
Advertising mails
Among all those tales
Rarely a thing that ‘matters’

I see no real hero
A spy is, in the eyes
Of the own party, a zero;
Beast of burden under other skies

It is true that the issues are sad
From privacy to the Syrian war
It is true so much of it is bad
We see things decent people abhor

Yet, key figures here make me smile
The clash of personalities who are
Gifted with their charismatic style
We must bear more than one star

Russia, once first on spying,
First on violence in prison,
Now Vladimir Putin is champion
For the free nation’s failing

Vladimir Putin offers safety
To Edward Snowden
And Barack Obama then
Refuses Putin’s hospitality

Yet the US-president
Still has the intent
To relate with, visit Russia
Thus politicians pass this arena

How to summarize this schism
It’s the theater of whataboutism
I stopped judging
Yet admire individuals shining

Dutch police beat up Russian diplomat
Strangers beat up Dutch diplomat
Who should be tamed?
Should I be ashamed?

You really think
Holland will punish
Public officials who stink?
It never does, here to our anguish

First he enlarged his power
Now he granted amnesty by law
He will shine like a sunlit flower
Some politicians have a colorful paw

Khodorkovsky spent 10 loud years in jail
He did all but shut up in his cell
The president took a chance to do well
At his request his president didn’t fail
To at last release him
Was it a genuine soft spot, a ruse, or a whim?

Offended to be released
What is a prison camp for?
Is it supposed to be a feast
When, to most, it’s a place to abhor

Ukraine’s president is playing hooky
I would smile if it weren’t so sad
Cutting off opponents’ ear is no cooky
Many a leader has gone full-blown mad

Earlier, Dutch Internal Affairs Minister
Had claimed NSA spies heavily here
Defense Minister says Dutch intelligence spies here
It’s pathetic rather than sinister

Dutch Internal Affairs had knowingly
Hidden Dutch Intelligence role
His black innocent eyes work forgivingly
NSA wasn’t the mole

Who spies on who?
The USA on China?
Or is it vice versa?
Most likely, mutuality is true

Secret services form a state
Within appreciated nations’ state
They lead lives of their own
Away from people, politics, they’ve grown

American people have reached out to me
Reliability I do see
Yet, meddling with foreign lands is unlucky
Withdrawal will set them free

Eastern Europe gained freedom
Western Europe lost that
It’s a long way from
A wall fallen flat

Feudalism for Truth

It's true: ideologies, religions
They're like a supermarket
(Ab)used by bureaucracy, politicians
Do I want to give up on them?

I look at what they say
Is it true, credible?
That is my assessment way
All are at elements true, usable

There's one ideology I never believe:
'One for all all for one'
Feudalism, corporatism, is a thief
Of basic human rights to independence

Independence, self-reliance, small ownership
Are the only ways to earn one's livelihood
No government or rulers can bring you food
Yet they abuse 'truth' to take over your ship

Therefore any collectivism & corporatism
Lead to poverty, debt, war
Landreform is what we must struggle for
Get back home & garden from formalism
