Mirror Poem about the Difficulty of Being Undertood and Entertaining in the Social Media Age

I saw a stage performer interviewed recently, and they said they’d been self-deprecating in a self-parody way, but were advised that people usually just took things literally, so I thought I’d write the way I think it should be in this poem’s title, and how it usually seems to have been over the last fifteen years.

I Am Your Writing Hero, You Are My Beloved Readers

fog obscuring shrouds
unoriginal readymades
low-lying tirades
kamikazes diving down
banshee screaming sown

brontosaurus dance, cognitive dissonance

silly students banished
class identity tarnished

generational sellers
invasive historical view
growing planted myths true

Mirror Poem with New Hair Life Metaphor Inspired by: Toxic Plants Killed Most Dinosaurs Theory

After yesterday’s Folding Mirror poem had a plants and creatures relationship theme I saw on MSN news this morning that a new theory posits that dinosaurs died out mainly because they ate toxic plants, and didn’t learn to avoid them. The video contains loads of my biggest theory: greenYgreyism!

I used to worry about hair
now I don’t really care
same’s true of life I guess
less of both reduces stress
new mirror poem compares pair…

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow, Dinosaurs Example to Follow

once bitten twice shy
keep trying ’til you die
contradictory messages
tangled tresses
life mirrors hair metaphor
haven’t heard that before

growth tempts more complication, passing of time eradication

options no longer visible
worked out what’s divisible
doors dangled
dreams strangled
if you want to prosper
break your own agenda

Making your own way was the main message of the latest Amorettes single:

Lots more contradictory proverbs on Derek Christensen’s blog. The post also includes Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker greenYgrey statue!

15 PAIRS OF CONTRADICTORY PROVERBS

Mirror Poem Reflects Cosmic Ray Light

I was thinking that yesterday’s video of the green shape docking at the ISS and Soyuz (which is what looked cross-shaped) could also be interpreted as the greenYgrey (the shape is described as yellow in another YouTube video) saying goodbye to humanity, as it was from 2014, when the greenYgrey was already on its XaW Files journey, in its final year on Earth, which included time in greenYgrey space above Russia!

Chemical Elements Mirror Poem

I thought the supporters of the above theory could be called the Enola Gays, remembering the song Enola Gay by the Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, wordplaying on the En start and ys end, with Gays also having a G like Grey, and the a and e are interchangeable, such as between American and English spelling.

However, when I looked the song up I realised it was about the plane that carried the atomic bomb over Hiroshima, so I think we should leave that there.

Ironically, atomic energy does have relevance to my new Folding Mirror poem, but only in being scientific in a chemistry way. As Wikipedia writes: ‘chemical element is a species of atoms having the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei.’

Wordplay Humour Poetry

Having watched Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator for the first time yesterday, when I first saw boron I thought it made a good blended word for Borat and moron, remembering Cohen’s other character.

I also thought it was weird his character had made his name into a lot of words in their language, after I’d written earlier that day about the greenYgrey family of words. Its not the first time our humour has crossed paths!

I liked the movie, although the humour’s lost the sparkle of the early stuff, but is still good. Having watched that and the even funnier Ted2 recently, I wonder why some people in Blighty get all high n’ mighty about my writing! I’m like the Simpsons to them being like South Park!!

It was also good to see the female stars having enough of a sense of humour to laugh at themselves in both movies, as I am about myself, and show my humility, as in the word explanation below the poem.

Anyway, enough about politically incorrectness, and time for the poetry and to introduce a couple of lovely images I found with lots of greenYgrey letters relevance, and great gYgPOP (greenY[ellow]greyPinkyOrangePurple) colours.

Chemical Elements, Wordplay Ingredients

found boron in codeword grid, without knowing what letters hid

unlocked box full of chemical elements

Most of the above science is new to me, although some ring a bell, such as Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium (Nirvana!), Nitrogen, Oxygen, Iron, Gold etc.
Wikipedia list of chemical elements: Boron is B5. Beryllium is Be4, Iron is Fe26. Vanadium is V23, Gold is Au79 – a gold AAW connection relevance!

If you need to research any words there’s the Free Online Dictionary. I checked fluorescent, thinking I knew basically what it meant, but not exactly. I was right, I didn’t know that fluorescence is light passed on from another light source, and is different to phosphorescence in that its light goes out straight away once the original light goes out.

Mirror Poem for Easter 21-C , with AI Space Technology

Today’s a special day for Christians, and I think Jesus provided a good overall example, criticising humanity’s greed and sacrificing his need. This latest Folding Mirror poem probably has a little Christian inspiration in looking at humanity’s development of technology positively, in that we are willing to produce something that will be superior to us in some ways.

Folding Mirror Poem Ins and Outs

After using bittersweet recently I thought I should have written it’s in the greenYgrey family of terms, as is the Ins and Outs of the title above. I’ve heard tit-for-tat a lot recently, and that’s another greenYgrey one – one term featuring two contrasting words.

The lines of this quite simple poem, compared to the last one, rhyme in the following line, and those two lines also start with the same letter; something I thought of doing along the way, after the first four lines worked like that automatically.

The triangle symbol may have been inspired by watching the latest NASA’s Unexplained Files (repeat from 2016) on Quest last night, with a mysterious triangle/diamond shaped old-fashioned greenygrey shape seen docking on the ISS (International Space Station), which looks like a cross. A greenYgreyology interpretation could be a greenYgrey Christian birth? Video of it from YouTube posted at end of the blog.

Advancing in Numeration, Nurturing of Automation

Independent Archaic (archaic – old-fashioned) – my term to reflect AI. The special character is the apt ‘backward difference’, fitting in with how humanity may seem in the future according to AI now defeating humanity in many tests/games/creativity, and set to widen the gap in the future.
Artificial Intelligence. The special character is the apt ‘imaginary part’ – took a little while searching through many of the 255 of them before choosing it.

New Mirror Poem from Writer Genius Wordsmith

I started having these ideas last night, so they would have been philosotea if I’d drank tea at tea-time, but I didn’t drink it yesterday, and just had a couple of coffees, as the second one was a bit late. I was listening to a new album by the Spacelords, and think it helped my mind rise, as Goldray did last year with their POPtastic (PinkyOrangePurple) Rising record.

Goldray - Rising (2017)

A new band to me, The Spacelords also had a great greenYgrey world cover for their Liquid Sun album.

Too Late for Managenius

With lots of talk about football manager genius this week, and having created my wrIus writer/ing-genius word for myself (and others who follow, or that have already been) – such new words combining parts of two others are called blends according to the Oxford Dictionary – I thought last night I hadn’t heard managenius used. So I looked it up, and think I was right about a football context, but it has been used by a French management consultancy.

I also had a few ideas for new Folding Mirror poems, or parts of the same one:

double negative fm
can tell badness of others as side with dark side (written about in my bipolarity poetry)
interpret my behaviour from wrong basis

I started off with the idea of writing it this morning, in a state of complete coffilosophy, although the spirit of philosotea. It ended up being a little different, but with some similarities, leaving the door open for another poem or two from the ideas above.

The title was inspired by an article I read this week about chimps, and how they share our dark side, suggesting an evolutionary link. I loved chimps when I was young, mostly inspired by the PG Tips advert I think, so I’ve been disappointed to see they’ve got a dark side, but accept it. However, the good news of chimps’ similarity to humanity is that on this year’s series of Animals With Cameras a chimp was shown washing its hands, cleaning its teeth and thoughtfully weaving together a nest from leaves (clip available on website above – don’t know if available outside U.K.).

I laugh to myself because I think a lot about other things while zoning out to the television, even if the programme’s interesting; I think down to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), but don’t know how far I am on the spectrum? I often have to rewind programmes having missed a few minutes, as I’ve written about before, and included in my poetry.

That’s one of the reasons why I consider it dangerous to be around one-dimensional people in the new ‘Big Brother’ age!

Poem about Horrible Bosses

I am a researcher now. The Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys I wrote about last post. I was more like Dennis Wilson before that, looking for the beauty in everything, especially nature and women, living ephemerally, caring more about being social than caring about who it was with, and what they were doing or saying.

Bad Work Environment

Around the same time as I was studying for my PhD; learning to research really analytically; personal, national and global events made me start to look at my world and the wider one in a different way; from my youth in Wales to the future of Britain and humanity.

So when I went back to the day-job I had changed from an unqualified hedonistic student to a graduated doctor of philosophy. Some of those above me didn’t seem to recognise that, just wanting to ‘compete’ with me in a contest I wasn’t interested in; I just wanted to work as little as possible to fund this writing.

Negative Postgraduate Experience

It wasn’t just the day-job though, as I think there was a similar problem while I was studying, with other students being ‘competitive’ when I just wanted to finish my thesis and leave after I had lengthy problems at the upgrading meeting at the end of the first year – taking nearly two years to return after my appeal was upheld.

So I’ve had years of unnecessary stress and bollocks because some ‘ambitious’ or egotistical people chose to ‘compete’ with me. Moreover, they still think they’re holier than thou, pillars of society, benefits to all those they ‘help’ to their faces; while stabbing them in their backs and slagging them off. Apart from receiving ‘feedback’ from those they’d obviously demonised me to, I also guessed what they were doing because they were doing it to others while being nice to their faces; and making out they were student/worker leaders to their peers while sleeping or sucking up to the hierarchy.

Poem Debit not Credit!

So this poem is about them, not for them, and certainly not in a good way, even as a ‘respected competitor’. It’s written with disdain and disgust. I was willing to work with them, but they made me the enemy, and made it out to be about everything apart from the personal, trying to get others from their ‘identity’ to do their dirty work for them.

I saw the movie Horrible Bosses for the first time last year, and that seemed to sum them up pretty well. However, I know being a manager or mentor can be difficult, and especially in some industries. That makes the good ones all the better. The ones I don’t like could also be helpful at times, just that they let themselves down in creating a general atmosphere of nauseous bull, and escalating it out of the workplace to the outside world. They probably hindered my efforts to criticise the grooming epidemic apparently going on in their locality, but maybe they were involved in it, or supported it, as they were all interested in the workplace version.

I wrote during that time that it seems ubiquitous throughout society and the world, and that seems to have been borne out since the Weinstein scandal brought it to the surface. So please make me a working writer, so I don’t have to go back to it!

Bjork Apology and Hollow Biology: Bjorkology

The greenYgreyology world is an exciting place to be today, as new findings and developments in the Icelandic field lead to the new sub-division of Bjorkology, cross-referencing Bjork’s Hollow biology video, which has a lot of gYgPOP (greenYgreyPinkyOrangePurple).

Exciting New Bjorkoveries (Bjork discoveries)

I’d seen Bjork’s Hollow video before, and thought the major groove protein’s trip through the nucleus part after about 1.30 is kind of like a biology version of the greenYgrey’s POP travel quest:

The video is referenced as being from 2011, which was of course long before the POP age in the greenYgrey world, proving Bjork had a POP interest before the greenYgrey set off to find our pop art Andy Warhol, Andy Wolfhol.

As I recently wrote, and with evidence on this blog and in my 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections book, I was also learning about the inner workings of our minds, thanks to a zeitgeist (cultural trend) inspired by new scientific developments.

I hadn’t seen Bjork’s Wanderlust video before yesterday, and that is dated to 2008, around the same time the greenYgrey world started online. The site started construction and testing in late 2007, but took off at the beginning of 2008. Bjork’s Wanderlust video could be an Icelandic version of it… and Iceland was of course where it ended!

Bjork’s Real Pronunciation

In another documentary about Bjork I saw that she doesn’t mind it being pronounced the way I suggested in the last post, and the way I’ve always heard it, but really it is Be-yerk. So it’s quite close to the ‘be jerk’ I wrote was scandalous, only without the j!

I hope Bjork and her fans and all Icelanders like this post, and warm to the exciting new age of Bjorkology!
