The year of the Cock

cocksThis is the year of the Fire Rooster which, according to Chinese astrology brings with it expansive prosperity and a time of great dynamism, strength, and persistence. Care must be taken though because fire is also connected to restlessness.

It seems to me, whilst contemplating the cess pit of chaos created by those who profess to lead us, that we will also require a great deal of patience in the months to come.

This poem is in honour of those same self-aggrandising mouth-pieces who disturb no brain cells whatsoever on the needs of others in the quest to achieve their own gluttonous ambitions.

 

The cupboard is full of cocks,
a cupboard in a room.

The room is full of cocks,
a room in a building.

The building is full of cocks,
a building in a place.

The place is full of cocks,
a place in a city.

The city is full of cocks,
a city on an island.

The island is full of cocks,
an island in a continent.

The continent is full of cocks,
a continent on a planet.

The planet is called Earth,
and Earth is full of cocks.

 

 

The artwork is entitled “Monolith of the gluttonous mouth-pieces” and which, in the style of the monolith in 2001 a space odyssey, floats through the universe leaving chaos in its wake. It is a digital creation by Rivenrod
