Geoff's Death (in memoriam Geoffrey France 1917-2006) Nov 6 2006
Exit.
Stage managed,
Withoutapplause.
Footlights dimmed,
And then out.
It's over.
He's gone.
What was
Isness
Is now
Wasness.
There's no more business
To transact.
No show to transfer,
And no bow taken.
Forsaken?
We all are.
For each run ends,
And every House darkens.
Bernard Badpoet Nov 2006
The Human Delusion (Inspired by Richard Dawkins' book 'The God Delusion")
I am Dawkins' Robot,
Complex in my way, it's true,
But I only exist to serve to serve my genes,
As they are the ones that do.

They allow my sham existence,
Whilst turning to their task
Of striding across the millennia
With a single-minded zest.

From Amoeba to Me they've condescended
To join in Corporate groups,
And even Albert Einstein
Was simply one of the troops.

My life story weaves a fiction
Spun out to delay the truth…
