Idiocy: Recollecting 2009

1) There was an outbreak of idiocy, and the world seemed normal. An out of work bartender sold her virginity thrice, and made plans to leave an estate to an accidental bastard.

2) Like frightened piglets people dug their snouts into sands of imagined protection while swine flu killed at random. Opportunists sucked profits obscene while minuscule demons mutated. Meaningless rituals took hold, whilst specialists squirted spurts of doom. Confusion legitimised idiocy.

3) A superpower spent zillions of dollars on arms while military and militia raped, pillaged, killed and razed hamlets. Blackrobed judges gave the president a peace prize. Unarmed peaceniks got shot. Terror like smog came to stay. Idiocy smothered humanity.

4) Yeats said seat of love and seat of excretion are merely two fingers apart. Idiocy and intellect, pigheadedness and an angelic side, dumbly cohabit like a frigid couple.

5) A planet doomed looks at us like a mother dying, while the affluent try to chop off her body part. Idiocy is a miasma that cloaks quiet desperation.

6) Power of greed like alien seeds grew wild, potatoes grew five times bigger like obsese kids, when injected with frog DNA, Worse than poison, GM food could make us freaks.

7) In the age of the Rainbow Warrior, toxic dumping can be whooshed off when pacifism fizzles out, and 2000 vocalists synchronise on a single scale.


9) Aspirin is good, it's bad! Good bad goodbad goodbad goodbad! Truth like God lives as spiritin spacetime cracks, 5 billion blind men fumble, Godmen buy islands.

10) When idiocy wraps us like second skin, how will a tiny lamp of sense warm our noses - ears falling off? When a thousand groups are drilling holes in our boat, will words save us?


12) We wouldn't be caught dead with deadlines, lives we stuff into a sculpted ruse. Our sloppiness screams from our ad hoc day to day battles. What an organic heaven!

13) A clutch of rich nations possesses enough nukes to wipe out all life globally thirty times over.After the first use, who will press the button twenty-nine times? Idiocy supreme.

14) An Asian-American with alleged terrorist links may get three hundred years in jail. If he lives to 110, will they flog his effigy for 240 years? Schoolboy justice?

15) Some Palestinian idiots killed 13 Israelis, as a reprisal insecurity-crazed idiots razed Gaza strip killing 1300. What lovely arithmetic.

16) One Pandora'a Box left untouched will be opened soon, biologists are very close to creating life. Sci-fi will go hi-fi.


18) Switzerland, a heaven for vapid tourists who trill and dance, and a haven for blood moneytrailing despots and tyrants and power-crazed out of power.

19) If animals ruled the world, would they overmine the earth till cities collapsed? Overmine to undermine existence?

20) India's culture, exotic, exquisite and exalted rests on shaky, shifting and shattered civilisation.

21) After walling up people in an edifice of unjust truth, we write judgments 1000s of pages long to smother a puny candle of truth.

22) "What lovely weather!" said I. "Hunh!" said my Bangalore buddy, "Because we didn't have chilling nights nor killing noons, our air swarms with allergens. Being sick is normal!"

23) Fog causing trains to smash into one another, is like small pox wiping out six villages. An anachronistic nightmare.

24) An elaborately defended lack of ambition on part of a businessman, is like a middle-age muddle. Inner confusion shows like a bloated middle.
