The Gnome That Roams

I have a garden gnome that roams,

It roams from place to place.

I never see it move,

It moves with such stealth and grace.

But the gnome is permabulating,

Of that I am quite sure.

Sometimes I think it even chuckles,

And knocks on the front door.

Sometimes it peers in a window,

But its face never betrays a hint,

Of what it's up to out there,

(Although sometimes its shades have a darker tint.)

Celebrated by other gnomes,

For its ninja-like abilities,

To me it seems cursed -

To indulge relentless garden roaming proclivities.

But sometimes I hear it use its mobile phone,

Or chat to passersby in cheery tones,

So who knows - it's one mysterious garden ornament,

That inscrutable gnome that roams.

The Wind in the Trees

I said this as I went for a walk with a friend.

"Ahhh, splendid. The trees have been farting."

It was a good walk.

Evil Overlords, PR Henchlings & the Myth of the Middle

Saturday, March 26th 2011

The moderate view, the reasonable view, is the one that is considered to be "in in the middle", a "compromise" between several competing extremes.

At least that's often the conclusion of many a "reasonable" discussion. (The lifeblood of reasonable folks in the media, politics and business).

These people are the victims of a classic propaganda technique.
