I found myself thinking about something a friend had blogged about. It referred to how the media vomits out nothing but “bad and depressing news”. This my friend says is intended to deflate the masses depress them and then point their noses in the direction of the chemist.

Everyone it appears is “in some way” depressed and so stun themselves with chemicals. This provides even more power to the powers that be,  so they are able to hoodwink the masses and more or less get away with bloody murder.

perhaps you are right Sue, it is all the medias fault for these foggy eyed people, walking around town without a clue where they are going. They find the only way of escaping the doom and gloom that the media dish out every day, is to open an account with Boots.

Obviously there are those that “need” to take medication for an ILLNESS, I exclude these people from the above.
If I may QUOTE from the E.W.Wilcox poem, “solitude”, WHICH I am sure you are familiar with.

“Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all”

BASICALLY I am a happy man, I like a laugh and I do try to always look on the bright side. But, you can GUARANTEE that some arse will come along sooner or later and spoil my day.  “Hang on” is that looking on the wrong side of life….

Solitude

 photo DIVIDERPURPLEPEARL.gif

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it’s mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life’s gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain. 

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

  1. I try to be a glass half full person Kenny, but you get hit by so many headlines, bills, day to day worries that the glass level becomes lower as the contents are consumed. ( Hic!! 😉 ) I know what you mean, my friend, we each face the World in our own way, sometimes up sometimes down, but never down for long, as there’s always something to be thankful for if you look hard enough. xPenx

    • “OH” yes Pen, every cloud etc. But when I read or hear about the horrible things that are happening in the World , I just wonder how as Human beings, can we commit such atrocities upon each other.
      So of late I have been thinking, is highlighting the evil the best way of dealing with my disgust. Perhaps I should concentrate on highlighting the beauty of life and forget,black out the down side of life.
      I heard of a new tv news channel that may be coming on air, that only reports on ” good ” news. “Bring it on “

      • It’ll be interesting to see if their viewing figures are high Kenny, I hope so, I’d hate to think that we humans are only interested in bad news. Seems that’s the view of Newspapers and TV News, so it’d be great to prove ’em wrong. xx

        • Shame we can’t filter out bad news reports and sad episodes of certain programs on tv, as we can filter out things on our computers like bad language indecent images etc !!! How neat would that be 🙂 xx

  2. I’d love to ask the people currently running the country just WHERE they intend the nation to be in thirty years time. I don’t think they have any aims which aren’t personal and party members/candidates here are throwing in the towel on grounds that the party no longer stands for morality and decency which just about says it all.
    Beautiful poem x

    • I believe this government sees England in 30 years time, as still being dictated to by europe and squandering 100’s of billions of pounds on ridiculous schemes such as the new planned rail link from London to Birmingham. ” Wow” so now i can save 20 mins. on the journey, bloody marvelous, in’it. I also expect the population count will rise rapidly to over a 100 million. Of which 25% shall be of mixed race.

      I suspect also that because of the disgusting act of “female feticide” on the grounds of gender among certain tribes of immigrants. ( mentioned in my last post) There shall be a marked difference between the male and female population of these peoples. This itself shall result in the increase of mixed marriages and so accelerating the inevitable, Total extinction of the blue eyes !!!
      Don’t get me wrong Sarah, I am no racist, some of my friends are bloody foreigners 🙂 lol
      Perhaps I am just a “little” xenophobic. Dinosaurs like me find it somewhat difficult to relinquish hold of our life long held beliefs, just because some lard arse sitting in a position of power, orders that I should “respect” something that I find deeply offensive, threatening and immoral. On the grounds of “their” “human rights” Well what about “my” human rights” . When I watch football on tv, I do not wish to see them playing with a pink ball.
      Be well Sarah x

        • I guess you are talking about the “Transatlantic trade investment partnership” Which “we” the people have no say in the matter. This scares me. I would like to know how Osborne is going to explain this away. RE: Eyes. I guess the colour of peoples eye’s are not that important, more so, is “what” they see !!!

        • lol… the quote from the poem about losing friends is not directed at anyone. It is just a statement of fact, in life people are attracted to the happy and shy away from the boring.
          That “urge” to tell it as you see it Sue, is precisely how I have been feeling all my life and yes I have upset some because of it.
          One mans meat etc.
          Lol have this image of your bloomers flapping about up the flag pole and wondering if you are ever going to take them down 🙂 lol
          Be well my lovely friend xxx
