Irish Eyes: King Henry's Feast

Irish Eyes with Greg Meylan in Dublin

King Henry's Feast

A bowl of fruit, good for your bowels. Still life of a bowel full of fruit. In the life giving rain that is good for your skin. Ah my little chiquita, bonita, apples from the south of France. Sunshine and sunflowers, cold pressed virgins shivering, expecting alms, an olive branch.

The nuts of quercus alba, digested by the rich Irish soil, sending forth little tendrils of the mighty, shady oak. Chopped down, turned on a lathe. The magic tree turned into a salad bowl, full of fruit. On an oak table King Henry feasted at.

But that is history. The preserve of jams, saints, scholars. For something longer lasting try to remember everything that happened - yesterday.

Ladies, having trouble attracting men? Put a red light in your window. Feng Shui masters rearranging hospital orderlies to cure the sick. At heart.

My friend said of the clouds, its like a thousand galloping horses storming over a hill. He was serious, not me.

Are you? Happy to..., do you go down? Is George Dubya good in the scratcher? Who do you think might know, and how would we find out? Passion or compassion. Compassion fruit that tastes as good as you look.

A begging bowl full of pennies, in the rain, shivering cold pressed junkies, digested by the rich, look at me I shite money, no sewer big enough for these healthy bowels.

Still that is life in the giving rain.

Gordon Campbell: On America’s ‘Green New Deal’

‘Socialism’ is more of a political scare word than an objective condition. Even in the US, as Nate Silver’s 538 website pointed out this week there is polling evidence that modern Americans are inclined to treat socialism as meaning ‘equality’ rather than the ‘government ownership or control’ that Americans understood the term to mean back in the 1940s...

Gordon Campbell: On The Nelson Fire And Climate Change

The Nelson fire has been a useful warning of things to come, given how climate change will (a) increase the likelihood of reduced rainfall and drought-like conditions in many parts of New Zealand, which – obviously – will raise (b) the fire danger and (c) the cost of providing the communities at risk with the enhanced firefighting capabilities that they’re going to need.
