How to argue with anti-white racists 2:

They like to go on about slavery, as if they’ve got a monopoly, but there’s always been slavery, and some was black against white, such as the African Barbary Coast (ABC!) slavery from the 15th to 18th centuries (about the same dates as the transatlantic one we always hear blacks cite), filled with raids on Europe right up to Iceland:

Poem about Changing Views and Perceptions

Images of the spiral galaxy Messier_100 demons...
Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by seeing the above image while writing a blog about humanity’s place in the grand scheme of things; and the explanation about how the improving of a lens can dramatically alter what we see, and what we perceive. What is true for space is also of course true for our world. Here’s the poem:
Orbital Perceptions
What we see is never
likely to be all there is.
It depends on what eyes tell brain,
the power and clarity of lens or media,
or the position of Earth and Sun.
Look to the sky and see the colours of day
when the planet’s axis tilts one half towards light
the other side of the world is viewing the stars.
How much of the cosmos is seen
could depend on whether in city or country
and whether an expert or novice astronomer.
Our mind often misses what’s there
and makes up what’s not.

Existential Questions of Greenygreyness?

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol, deep thinking artistic visionary at the Greenygrey.  You know, sometimes when I’m wondering about the meaning of everything my mind becomes so boggled that I wonder if my colleagues and I at the Greenygrey are even real.

How Real is the Greenygrey?  Like Night and Day?

Although we have been around for many centuries, there is only a few years evidence in the human world.  But then, night and day were around for a long time before being observed and named by humanity, so you could say we are as old as night and day.

How Real is the Greenygrey?  Like Virgin, Red Bull, Apple and City?

It’s hard to imagine a world without Virgin, Apple and Red Bull now, with the companies expanding and evolving from one market to many different ones. Red Bull has motor racing and football teams, and has become almost statelike.

Towns and cities of course usually grow out of small settlements; they have emerged and disappeared just like the liquid in a can of Red Bull, although of course over a longer time period and slower pace.

How Real is the Greenygrey?  Living in the Cloud.

We are hearing more and more about the cloud where the computer information of the future will be stored.  As human civilisation becomes more virtual, will we feel more real; I feel pretty real already though!

Poem about Life Reality between Dreams and Folklore

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem resides in the greenygrey area between fantasy and reality; our place in it and others’ perceptions of our place in it.
Before we are born we may be the fantasies of our parents, and after we die our lives and images may become the fantasies of those who shared our lives and the descendents who never meet us.
Even in life, much of our lives are a fantasy to most people; who only know a little about our reality, and may make up the rest themselves.
And to yourself, the ‘real’ world can seem like a fantasy, where you don’t feel you have any control over your life and environment.  What is hidden beyond bureaucracy, walls and horizons is imagined by the mind.
Here’s the poem:
Between Times of Fantasy 
In your mother’s dreams and belly
babyhood being smelly.
Unremembered times of laughter
burping after each eating disaster.
Your experiences learned
in photos and tales.
Reality within dreams and memories
Your story pieced together
jumbled jigsaw dialogue.
School tomfoolery and work folklore
friends recall once more.
You’re not present
to witness descendents create your epitaph.

Poem featuring Great Spirit Creation Myth missing link?

Marc Latham’s latest poem continues along the theme of other recent poems involving the Great Spirit, Father Sky and Mother Earth inspired by Peter Prew’s The Human Reality.
At the heart of this poem is Marc Latham’s original creation myth for the Greenygrey: that it was born when the green Earth and grey Sky were as one in greenygrey.
This could make the Greenygrey the missing link in the Great Spirit Father Sky and Mother Earth creation myth!?  Here’s the poem:
When Earth and Sky are as One
Father Sky
riding high
except times
when its cirrus
fly amongst
mountain forests
and pea soup
joins it to Earth
Tis the time of Greenygrey
Sky is within reach
touch the void
swirling seraphim
seaside fog
rolling in estuary
islands bliss
giving birth
Mother Earth
