Albion, Art, Trickster

Fade to Grey…

The Tri-grams… Are grey… Because their wisdom… Is only accessible… Through interpretation… Which is to say… Interpreting the wisdom… They impart… Is an… Art!… Not a science… Heaven forbid… We introduce this concept… To our young global leaders… When every last Jack of them… Without exception… Has been banging on about… Science… Which is dead already… It’s death… Occurred with the moon landings of Nineteen Sixty Nine… Not that they ever were… Following scientific principles… Anyway… Just their highly politicised version of science… Which is to say… Not science at all.

Life… Like it or not… Is lived in the grey… Those grey areas… Which exist between… The black… And the white… And not one jot of it… Has anything to do… With their science… Their thinking produces only absurdity… Celine’s, Mort à crédit… For example was translated as… Wait for it… Death on the Instalment Plan… The what?… It was a translation intended to put off potential readers… Given that this writer was infamous for his use of slang… We can perhaps offer a couple of more suitable… Monikers… Death on the SlateDeath on Tick… Hell, even the blindingly obvious… Death on Credit.

Our female teachers… One might have thought… Ought to have been… Dames… But they were not… They were… Misses… Even the married ones… Madam… Might have worked… Had it not already… Been appropriated… By Houses of Ill Repute… Weirdly… Miss… Never acquired the same sing-song conviviality… As… Sir… It is very hard to say precisely why… Our Mathematics Miss… Could also speak french… But she refused to translate… The french lyric… Of a popular song of the time… For us… And that was not the last time that somebody… Was less than forthcoming with their language skills.
