THE MIND OF RD REVILO

  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…

I’ve ALWAYS Been Hardheaded. This Week I Paid The Price.

A heads up for people with diabetes!

Flickr Wednesday: Joe O’Malley

Most regular readers of my blog know that I have an interest in graffiti and mural art.

Some of my interest is political: graffiti art is one way for a silenced people to speak up; and some of my interest is aesthetic.

In San Francisco many of the murals are a visual and intellectual treat.

I hear the argument that graffiti art is vandalism.

I see it as a reaction to the cronyism that places connections and status above creative talent and vision.

This week I am pleased to highlight the photography of Flickr member Joe O’Malley, who documents the graffiti and mural art in East London. In his profile, he writes:

“A long term documentary of freely accessible Street Art, mainly in East London and occasionally further afield, plus Street Photography and anything else which may catch my eye thrown in free of charge!”
