the past on his back
emotion barks at his heel
eyes look to heaven

---

With thoughts in his mind
Not looking where he's going
He walks unaware.

---

turning from the light
now his feet in darkness fall
a friend begs him, turn

---

He's Nobodys fool.
But he's the only fool we have.
His life is a joke.

---

In his search for bliss
the stupid American
lemmings to the cliff

---

Be quiet dumb beast!
I am man, and you are not
what could you tell me?

---

Joker, jestor and clown
Years spent searching for myself
Ha, the laughs on me

---

He's a silly fool
aware of nothing is he
but jestic and simplific beauty.

---

listen if you were wearing
such a silly frock
you too would contemplate the leap.

---

why not take a trip?
what better place to do it
than right here right now?

---

Led by the idiot box,
the Fool states: "even a fool
knows any fool will do."

---

Pick a card, Descartes,
any card. I'll bet you I
don't know what it is.

Hello Folks, and yes we had no bananas last week, kind of thing. Excellent effort for the Shen Ling painting. It was worth leaving it up just to give John a chance to do his.

Oh! And there were lots of anonymous efforts. I didn't whack them on the front page because they were, um, anonymous, which is to say, who can tell if they were from one person or many?

Otherwise, yes, today's pic was on the church already. But it's a great pic and easily up to serving double duty. Yoroshiku.

Life starting anew
Overly Optimistic

yellow-spotted fool
sometimes found on rosy cliffs
soon to be extinct

Ever distracted,
by things lacking artifice -
under his feet, the earth.

nobody said...

Between him falling,
and the earth holding him up,
he shall never fall.

High fives with Ken Lay!

What's this guillotine
doing here now in my scene?
Down my leg I'm peen.

so to clear my mental fog
I think about this blog

In Afganistan

my grab for their oiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Penny said...

I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner.
Playing my music in the sun.

First thing that came to my mind....

Penny said...

oh yeah and those our song lyrics, sorry should have said that.
sort of thought, I won't need to, then I thought maybe I better mention that.

"sure don't wanna hurt no one"
"smiley winky thing"

:)

Penny said...

hey kikz, I sort of figured that everyone would know it was the joker, but then thought I should mention it. It is an oldie, ya never know, but it is somewhat of a rock classic, no?

lookin at the year that came out, man I was a kid....


The Joker

kikz said...

gaaad 73... i was 11 :))))

john said...

Hope all ok.

the past on his back
emotion barks at his heel
eyes look to heaven

all names must perish
and all below is image
one thing unchanging

Penny said...

hey kikz, I was ten!
( I have a late in the year b-day, so I was ten, when that one came out)

I think I was born to rock
lol!
my MiL always says
god how can you still listen to that crap.
whatever?
played the vid about 3 times.
rock videos sure are not the same now eh?

clown said...

He plays the buffoon
Tomorrow he's a wise guy
The dog barks en-joy!


Joker, jestor and clown
Years spent searching for myself
Ha, the laughs one me.

Hey Penny, good one throwing in the lines for Steve Miller's The Joker!

Will you be mad at me if I say I was only 2 when that came out? Age doesn't really make much difference though, I still love the music and actually have one of his cd's (the only one I've found so far)...lol.

My favorite lines from the song:
I'm a joker,
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker,
Playin' my music in the su-un.

so I sez to God...
Too busy to pray right now
so catch me later

Penny said...

Nah skye, I am not mad at you, silly,
It's all good.

nobody said...

Yay, lots of good stuff. Brian, is that you being anonymous? You've traded your ego for our confusion, ha ha. Why not just pick an anonymous name. 'X', or 'john doe' or something?

Hmm... or perhaps we should all be anonymous? I can see a logic to it but, nah, that's too weird. And besides, for what percentage of human time on earth was anonymity possible? I'm thinking it's a pretty recent invention.

So says nobody, ha ha. The irony runs rampant don't it?

Otherwise, I'm certain the other anonymous was Tony. Why not just whack your moniker on it mate? Definitely your best yet.

Oh! And new faces popping in. Actually with the rash of anonymouses it's hard to tell. Anyway, hello Tao. Good effort. Or perhaps I should say frabjous, ha ha.

brian said...

Anonymity, an idea whose time has come!
Taking orders from Nobody like a good anarchist, I admit to hitting the blog once as anonymous this time, but I did not inhale.

nobody said...

Hee hee, I did. It was fun. Were we talking about dope? Or was that just me?

nobody said...

The little dog laughed,
to see such fun. And the fool?
He spooned the moon.

su said...

off tangent Nobody have you been posting on Urban Guru Cafe by some chance or are there many nobodies?

A Fool's ideas wax
like wilding whiskers: "may I
use your razor Bill?"

...

Anselm introduced
the Fool to his God and the
Fool shook his own hand

...
"I think therefore I
am" said the Fool to his head,
"and I'm no Fool"

...

Led by the idiot
box, the Fool states: "even a fool
knows any fool will do."

...

You can argue 'til
your face turns blue, the Fool still
won't understand you

brian said...

god shook a fool's head
a crackerjack prize fell out
but the fool ate it

the fool said...

"pick a card Decartes
any card, i'll bet you I
don't know what it is."

the Fool said...

"i tried to pronounce
my fart but it wasn't clear.
I think I stuttered."
