a brief example of surprise

It is now evident to everyone
that the most insidious pandemic
is one of extremist insanity.
Is it a symptom of; Covid,
Wall Street pillage, Trump fascism,
racism, global warming climate immigration,
a billionaire explosion
or perhaps pumpkin spice poisoning?
Whether it is a disease, syndrome or toxin,
there ought to be a way to feel right
boost our immune system,
get a vaccine or take a pill
but the other symptoms
are delusion and denial so we deny the answer
that is hiding in plain sight.

THERE ARE 8 BILLION OF US!!!!
When I was born there were 3.

Reproduction is exponential
food and water production is not.

THE GREAT SLIDE HAS BEGUN.
We are only at the top of the slide just starting to accelerate.
The fall is slow at first and is only at 45 degrees.
When we approach 90 degrees we will be in free fall.
Dystopia will be a luxury for the few.
The entitled will be disappointed
that delivery will not exist
and defeats all their strategies.
There will be some real
4 horsemen biblical shit.
But right now we can forget.
There are some people who feel
that i am the optimist

"'All you need is love' is in the time signature of 7/4 but you probably never realized it unless you are performing it."

This song changes metre all the time. The chorus is not in 7/4 and several other time signatures apart from 7/4 are employed. I'd say that it's better to realise this before you perform it. Try wiki.

Allow me to extend some unsolicited poetic devices based on the element of surprise. Like music, surprise in poetry is its essence. Do not fall for the 'unfathomable excuse' of the lazy. Or think an abstract piece is just hung upside down. There may be a fractal truth you could see if you look closer.

1. Rhythm change. It can change in beats or produce a kama sutra sycopated rhythm but it can change. 'All you need is love' is in the time signature of 7/4 but you probably never realized it unless you are performing it.

2. Modulation. Tone, subject, meaning and color can all change.

3. Enigmatic metaphors. People will have to supply their own meaning or ignore the metaphor like 'and shes buying her stairway to heaven'??

4. Surprise is a kind of contrast. It might be a direction change or a sudden witicism. imo it beats a boring pentameter with a bell ringing on every rhyme.

Little Jane and John, bought a house in Texas,
And climate deniers were they.
The home sure looked great when 20 years rolled around.
They were so proud, yes siree!

And this is what he said on
the day their house was all gone:

OMG,
I guess we'll have to flee,
our house beneath the sea.
Sea Rise is no joke,
when you begin to choke
every other day
in a flood of debris.

Remember, Janie,
how climate change was crazy
they said it was a hoax
I'll try to smile somehow.
I'll look for you when the flood is over,
A million fucking years from now!

I see now, thanks, Donuel. That's the way Google's Blogger is set-up and, by the way, I think it must be one of the best free website options, with no limits on visits & ads only if you choose to add them (which, as an amateur, I don't). I now live in a small studio flat in Manchester & only have a Casio SA-46 "lap-top" keyboard but, back then in my 2-bedroom Newcastle flat, I had a bog-standard recording studio, with a large keyboard.

We should be planting more Dog Roses in England - along with the other native flora that our native fauna EVOLVED with.

Agree, Dave, to the extent that, until around the 1950s & mass economic/CAPITALIST immigration, England was an old old blend of European cultures.

And, whilst I was sin the Mudcat "sin bin" (hopefully for the last time), I noticed William Windsor out selling Big Issues, and a regular seller (almost certainly with 100s of times less wealth) falling for it by calling him "The Peoples' Prince".

If I'm called anti-immigrationist, I can accept it with some qualification but NOT "racist" (above), which is defamatory (&, making it worse, the posts - which did not have any racism in them - can no-longer be read.

I love our world/our United Nations being multicultural - including English culture in England which IS on the decline and, thus, I'm one of those trying to do something about it.

Furthermore, I am anti-monarchism without being against any particular royal (I agree with Charles Windsor on some environmental issues, and have said above that Elizabeth Windsor happens to be quite a good public speaker - whether or not she actually writes all the words, as Steve mentions above).
