Suppositions

Suppositions

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

didn't do much reworking of this..so very interested in any suggestions :)

"
Squirrels scurry about
Grey and brown and black
Gathering and hiding away
truth

half masticated leaves and tomatoes
spewing from ruminating cows 

kicking over flat warm rocks 
speculations explode like iridescent 
Bouncing Betty or
dung beetles

news of such things a wound running
blood and detritus
mouths unable to sustain honesty
 dribble
                    drip
                         dribble
down protocol bibs
spoiled children in high chairs.

Could it be that 'the superiors' choreograph, edit and drip-feed us, little snippets of what 'they' not us, wish to hear? One for the conspiracy theorists to peruse, and are we really all mere pawns in their game of chess?

A very profound, thought provoking and subjective poem, sublime metaphor thought out, bravo E.

The superiors and the powers to be aren't as refined as fhey make themselves to be. Enjoyed the ample references to animals and the innocence they are associated with.

"spoiled children in high chairs", unfortunately, most of the times the right man sits in the wrong place, and the wrong man sits in an important place, lies and betrayal, fake people are existed in life, first in Your poem I was with Your wandering anxious mind, Your sad spirit for what the world has become, then I saw how You came from the general to the specific, the policy,
sincerely written, faithfully with a certain warmth of sadness, a brilliant piece, I liked the mixture of it, Thank You Mr.E!

Not only gathering and hiding away the truth, but busily gathering nuts for their own selfish ends as winter sets on us.

Same as it was, same it will perhaps always be.

Can't wait for the second coming, meantime I take comfort that they aren't fooling all of us.

Beccy. :))

This guy should be knighted.
So bloody refreshing when someone just speaks the truth. Unlike our politicians who wouldn't know the truth if it touched their knees.

I'm not a big fan of squirrels . . . very abundant here & they make short work of my garden! So I'm seeing things thru the eyes of this narrator somewhat . . . & then I love the way your message pivots to the current flow of outrageousness . . . *sigh!* Both equally annoying, so I try to stay blissfully clueless as much as I can! *wink! wink!* (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

hey you - you know I was in the midst of a very intense spin class today and a thought came to mind 'there are so many pushers and peddler's these days it is important to know and understand our OWN truths'

The world shall not become less chaotic unless there is a big shift in the actual way we think. Unfortunately we are conditioned to blindly believe - and we do, for lac of time of our own investigations.

Your poem represents this for me - we all need to take time for our own silence - for within it we shall find the answers.

Great video clip E.- I had to laugh out loud! The ‘REAL f*cking news’-yes! Your adroit poem has squirrels and cows and dung beetles as political spin-doctors hiding, regurgitating and spewing ‘fake news’ all over the Animal Farm! “Blood and detritus”- Brilliant- Love it! Please leave it as is. Kudos!

I think you capture the essence of politicians and news reporters working in unison these days as they spill out sound bite, exaggerated, distorted and sanitised, skewed news for our consumption. I too like this as is 'E'
