Overview

The third in a small book series of eight line poems untitled and unadorned, observant and perhaps infused with a slightly dark and askance view of the life of the human spirit, the mind and life in general. By the author of White Brother and other poems, Swaghead – an epic journey in 12 cantos and Poetry from Gnos.

Extract

The first Existentialist likens uselessness to rubbish
The second likens it to junk
The third likens it to debris
The fourth likens it to trash
The fifth to dross
The sixth to refuse,
Thus their understanding of human life
Suffers many synonyms.

When winds blow in suburbs
Their residents say
‘Here comes the Money-mother
Running over the streets’,
And if the winds are hot
There will be recklessness
And if the winds are cold
There will be insecurity.

It was the custom
In the old days of superstition
That someone who was sick in the mind
Was called the Cripple Goat,
Limping on one foot
To show the rest
That what was happening on the outside
Was happening inside too.

While investigating child abuse
In the Church
Police found pornography
And made it evidence,
In its defense
The Church then said
The pornography is evidence
Of parishioners’ sins.

Meet the Author

B F Moloney’s works are somewhat of a throwback to the spirit of punk, with thanks given to digital technology. Not far away is the author’s bent sense of humour, his feeling for struggle, his idealism. These eBooks may be best described as dark humoured fables or parfables as he likes to call them - hybrids of fable, parable, myth, and anecdote that tell of a subverted normalcy which he creates through character portraits and unusual scenarios; the ideas having sprung from philosophy, religion, mind and body.
