Baking Soda…

Given that the great and the good… Who have gathered in Swizzle-Land… At their own expense… Mark you… At their own expense… Are there to save the world… One might expect that they would be only to happy… To be questioned… In the street… As to their laudable plans… For this worthiest of all endeavours… Not so… They scuttle to and from… The assembly hall… Like guilty children… Caught misbehaving… In some cases… Their minders are on hand… To remind them… Not to talk… To the pesky press… The real press… That is… Not the fake press… Who receive name tags… Like delegates.

***

Not only that… The event even has its own special police force!… They are not real police… With state powers… Of course… They are fake… Like everything else… We might like to call them… Goons… Or hoods… They look very smart… In their uniforms… With their weird insignia… And despite the whole event being filmed and put out… Anyone filming under their own volition… In the public streets around and about… Is prevented… And detained… For questioning… Do these sound like the sort of people… We should be entrusting… With the care…  Of our beautiful world?… A thousand times no!

***

So how did they get there?… And what makes them so special?… Oh, just money… Nothing more… Nothing less… And as we all know… Anyone with bucket loads of the stuff… Has been less than honest in coming by it… Cosmic law… Apparently… Money… As the saying goes… Goes to money… End of… The last two episodes of our Simian Soda-Cake… And his flaky mates… Has seen the demons revealed as denizens of the ‘heaven’ world… Bored and out for some fun… Is this venerable tome and its less than savoury… Assumptions about the ancient world… Trying to tell us something about ours?

 

We'd love to hear from you...
