Inner thoughts are those mental meanderings that I keep within with myself. In that secret place I tumble and juxtapose ideas to beat them like semi-molten metal into defined shapes that I can understand.

I work hard to fashion my lines of thought to be short and concise.I am not one to make tangled sentences that might be misconstrued, even by myself at a later date. Learning as I did from hearing a friend reading aloud his own words, only to hear him say afterwards 'I wonder why I wrote that?'

One proposition is that it is possible to hold within two  opposing ideas and to own each as being completely valid.Not that this a new concept for the Irish Celts seem capable of much the same.They had and some still have a belief in the Christian God and in Fairy Magic.

The stumbling blocks for me are the word 'belief' plus the concept of a god, of any attached religion. From what I have witnessed all religions have a god to whom followers are given a set of rules which must be adhered to and are made to be fearful of breaking.
Death is seen by the religionists as being the end of life with the 'after life' used as a punishment or a reward.

Dr Carl Jung was once asked if he believed in god, his reply was
'No, I know[god]'.
I prefer not to use that three lettered word as it would only lead to confusion. I know that there is a Supreme Intelligence, which I see as a collusion of energies of which we humans etc. are a part. That we existed as an energy particle before birth and return to that existence via what we call death. I also,am very aware that some returned or retuned energy particles often remain in contact with this planet and are commonly known as ghosts.

What I consider to be my opposing thought occurs in my life as a Druid, in that I work with the old gods and goddesses, both in ritual and in meditation.They are to me the archetypes and mythological figures of the landscape, whose stories hold messages and power for those who acknowledge their presence.

Both of these suppositions sit well with me and cause no internal conflict.

About time to......

My friends,

She the Bitch is dead.

I have longed for this day and there is not one thousandth of gramme of sorrow within me.  Perhaps this is not one of my best written pieces, it does though some up all that was angering me at that time and the neglect of people by governments Still angers me today.

Here below is that a piece which I angrily wrote in 1981 and am pleased to share it with you all.

In Oppression, oppressive state
burns a fire named freedom
confined in dreams - a longing ache
To be free sleeping beneath stars
swimmingly weightless smooth.

In Oppression, oppressive state
burns a fire named freedom
confined in dreams and memory.
Still a longing ache!
Away you Thatcherite's
and your slimy she devil
who cooked books and polls

In Oppression, oppressive state
burns a fire named Freedom
confined in dreams and memory.
A fire fuelled by poverty and division
Twenty thousand homeless in Bristol
Two thousand of whom sleep on city streets.
How wonderful for your great Britain!

In Oppression, oppressive state
burns a fire named Freedom!
Confined in dreams and memory.
Grieve then Saxon grocer's girl
No lacquered thatch for their roofs
Nor an emblazoned Dame-hood
You BITCH Maggie Thatcher!

MRL 12. 4. 81   

I rejoice at M. T's passing and I wish it had come sooner. I still do weep for those who suffered and for the Mothers who cried for their children when they struggled to feed them because thousands of workers were tossed on to the scrap heap of life - in the interest of gross capitalism.

I shall always remember seeing the tears in the eyes of unemployed parents and grandparents as they asked ‘Why?’

If justice was properly practised in the UK and in the world at large Margaret Thatcher ought to have been charged as a war criminal for ordering the Belgrano to be sank considering it was outside of the exclusion zone.
