Merde A La Puissance Treize

In Honour of the Coronation of King Charles III (I’ll give some brief notes below)…

Merde A La Puissance Treize

White worms drop down from pussy’s arse
to join the heaving, cack caked floor.
The flies and mites sup rooster cum
and dance around where rubbers score
fecal byways. By the barn door
a hen sits on her rotting brood;
all maggoty, the sulphurs pour
into the heat where pigs once queued
for lies and pain and carrion food.
God’s animals don’t mind the smell
and defecate right where they sit;
yet barnyard creatures know quite well
that humans, too, are full of shit.

A 13 line sort-of-sonnet. ‘Merde A La Puissance Treize’ translates as ‘shit to the 13th power’. The French abbreviate it as ‘malpt’, and you say malpt to someone by way of wishing them good luck. It’s a bit like the way thesps say ‘break a leg’ by way of wishing someone good luck.

See, it’s all very respectful (Ha!).

ps. oh, and I could add that Westminster Hall, and a large part of Windsor Castle, including St George’s chapel, were all built by a French King. 1066, and all that.

You’ve got to laff…

    Bank of England raises bank rate, yet again.
    “It is the seventh time in a row that the Bank has raised rates as it battles to stem soaring prices.

    The move takes borrowing costs to their highest since 2008, when the UK banking system faced collapse.

    Interest rates have been rising since December as living costs have been climbing at a faster pace.

    Inflation – the pace at which prices rise – is currently at its highest rate for nearly 40 years, at 9.9%, leaving many people facing hardship.”

    There is collective lunacy in Europe.
    By cutting ourselves off from the riches of Russia our Elite have consigned our economies and the peasantry to hell.

    Looks like Europe is bit by bit shifting to the RIGHT.
    Ms. Meloni seems set to become the next Prime minister of Italy.
    In a way, you could say that, at the recent French election for President, France shifted RIGHT.
    Some think that the United Kingdom shifted right, when the populace voted in a Referendum to leave the E.U.
    Some think Sweden is turning RIGHT.

    What happened to the LEFT?
