dover ferry

(one I took of the ferry from France just outside the harbour on an eerie Sunday morning)

What’s the worst thing that can happen when you’ve got a sore throat (apart from being bitten by a venomous snake or being killed in a tragic accident)? Answer? Choking on seaweed. I bet that in the whole history of all humanity, not many people get to do that. I did. Chinese Crispy Seaweed was the culprit, coupled with me being starving hungry having forgotten to eat all day and then eating too quick was the cause.  At least I lived to tell the tale. Maybe worse things are on the horizon – a song yet to be born;

Wings without feathers

Feet without shoes

Hearts without heartstrings

That’s why I’m singing The Blues


This punch-drunk planet keeps on spinning

It’s so way out of touch

For in its West and its East lands

Leaders speak in double-Dutch


The rhetoric of morons

Big mouths mouthing off

Spitting hellfire and fury

In a ‘mine’s bigger than yours’ standing off


‘My bomb knows where you live mate’

‘I’ll blow you to Kingdom come’

‘You ain’t seen nothing yet’

‘Just wait till this war has begun’


‘We’ll trade tarmac for giant craters’

‘In a shock-wave fireball’

‘Wiping out innocent billions’

Just for the sake of the brawl


They’ll get away with mass murder

When there’s no judges left to judge

Reprising the Cain v Abel title fight

Just for the sake of their ego grudge


Wings without feathers

Feet without shoes

Hearts without heartstrings

That’s why I’m singing The Blues

Here’s one of my older pieces of music. An experimental one, entitled ‘Decider’. Topical?

Here’s link to ‘DREAM RESCUER’. It costs not much, and is available worldwide.  If you fancy buying it and feel able to post a review on Bandcamp, I’d appreciate it.

  1. George, this is a gorgeous photo of the ferry dwarfed by the vastness of the water. Brilliant, much like the individual dwarfed by the masses and games of follow the leader. I love that you paired this photo with your, “song yet to be born”. You never know what can ignite the power of change, a very poignant lyric. I’m looking forward to hearing the completed song. ~ Mia, ER&C

    1. ‘I’m as mad as hell’ does it for me, Mia. Great video. I think – just a random thought – that the US should make sure all the people in North Korea somehow get free access to the internet; somehow give them free tablets/laptops, then once they’ve seen how to rest of the planet just about gets by, there’ll be a revolution. Problem sorted.

  2. I hate the writing itch–not the writing part. I love the writing part. But I love that I can’t treat it, DO it. That I just have to live with the words in my head, scratching to get out, because Life Demands Me.

      1. I do forget, often. I grumble and force myself to move on. sometimes, though, I have my small black notebook, and I get the scribbles down in time. But it rarely is enough–like putting together three pieces instead of the whole puzzle. It’s not as much as I wanted to get done, and leaving the rest of the pieces on the table only promises a few will go missing before I get back to it.

    1. Thank you, Tashnee. I appreciate your offer. My problem is not enough hours in the day. I’m am struggling with so much work at the moment sometimes I don’t even know what day it is; plus I often get so busy I forget to eat! I’ll pass on this, but please accept my thanks for your kindness, George aka Zoolon.


  3. Nice one! I believe that most people in NK do not have access to internet or to any news whatsoever. There for they are in an isolated bubble where they have to believe what they are told. Also in the current regime any protest or deviation from the Dear Leader’s policy would result in imprisonment and torture. So yes , you are right , if internet access and access to outside news could be infiltrated into NK it would be the best possible weapon.

  4. I enjoy the complexity of decider. You always inspire me to get back into composing music 🎶 but first things first I have to make it to this drum class that inspires me. I’m feeling fortunate for all this inspiration, despite all my angst and grief. Enjoyed your song lyrics and hope we all don’t blow up so we can keep creating, making, and living. Kudos!
