Now please don’t tell Bear, Eva, Deborah or Johnny that I am running so late with this post on humans ! I do have excuses but you don’t need to hear them!
Right then shall we start!
Firstly I wanted to put up Bjork’s Human because it is one of my favourite songs and videos sadly it has been used so I am posting a Japanese cover by Hajime Chitose close your eyes and it could be Bjork ……. Open your eyes it could be Bjork! (*_*)
Now what makes humans different from practically all animals……… they have sex for fun and not because their bodies tell them too , well not all the time.
This song needs no explantion……….. No it does not! Forgivness maybe but not explanation ! The Bloodhound Gang , The Bad touch
So what do we do that animals don’t : we lie , we cheat and hurt.
We hurt each other we fight wars and hurt our children
We abuse our own children, even in the most evolved societies.
PLEASE BE AWARE , UPSETTING AND GRAPHIC LANGUAGE AND CONTENT. THE PHOTOS ARE FROM THE INTERNET AND ARE NOT ABUSED CHILDREN AS FAR AS I KNOW.
Invisible that what they called her
Invisible , she is dead now, is that fair.
Everyday the nice lady came
She knew, she did, she heard her use her name.
Evie is asleep her mother carelessly said
Yes Evie is asleep…..Pour Evie was dead.
Lucky was she if she got the scraps
She was so thirsty her lips were just chaps.
Frightened each day out of sight she hid
At school no one took notice of the things she did.
Evie was wasting away before everyone’s eyes
Stealing from bins, sleeping in class no one heeding her cries.
Up in her room cowering in the dark
Storming up the stairs, again his hands leave a mark.
Whimpering and shivering no point to make a sound
Evie does not want attention,praying not to be found.
The pain from his cigarette burns make her want to cry
Cold, tired hungry this child prayed to die.
He is always tired, dozing in class and accident prone
His parents are the perfect couple , how is he at home.
He is so clumsy covered in cuts and bruises
Mummy only feeds him when she chooses.
Daddy can’t stand him so he keeps out of sight
It is better that way, Mummy can’t protect him she has given up the fight.
His teacher is worried the child is so thin
Just look at those bruises, he is nothing but bone and skin.
Talk in the staffroom , what can be done
You need to be careful no one will back you if you get it wrong.
To hell with the rules she can’t stand watching this anymore
So she calls the police and the headmistress and tells them what she saw.
Visits are made every week can we see James . No he’s asleep!
Little James can hear this help , but to get down from the cupboard is too big a leap.
James is away with his nanny you see
Having fun at the seaside, in the sun running free.
He is too tired, and too hungry to cry
He is invisible , and invisible he will die.
But we can be good we help each other and we can care , most of us do care and do help.
Death by Aid
Tiny little fingers in the dust, huge eyes so sad begging for your crust. You are so hungry you need it for you but this is your child, who you can’t deny, true?
Hunger gnawing at your bones like cancer spreading fast. You worry if you’ll be strong enough to find water, as what you have just will not last.
No one is going to help you, your sons and daughters gone for soldiers.These two left will escape that fate as they will not grow much older. Your milk dried up, your belly empty. It hurts so much to walk but walk you must, you can’t stop. The baby at your breast has long since ceased crying. This sweet young child clinging to your skirt is dying.
Where is the help that was promised where is the aid that you need. You have walked days now with no hope of helping your children not even to feed. The baby needs medicine the western doctors dispense you have to flee from your home just were is the sense.
War at your left side famine at your right , politicians and corrupt leaders uncaring of your plight. Had you stayed they would of killed you or worse …OH! my poor children your birth is your curse.
Standing at the top of the hill you can see a straggling encampment a red cross flag flying still. You put down the baby his soul already flown to your husbands arms now, at least not alone. You need to rest but your aim is in reach . You lay in the dust next to your babes, close your eyes just ignore the flies.
Tiny little fingers in the dust , huge eyes so sad finally closed. Where is the help that was promised where is the aid.War on your left side famine at your right they no longer threaten you Death has arrive to erase your plight.
But it is still happening, isn’t it . Many say that is life that is the human lie………. Is it really.
Well I suppose I should finish on a happy note……….. Let me see Humans are always hopeful . So lets have a couple of songs of hope. Firstly a song from the Decemberists . Sons and Daughters. As I hear this song after either a huge war or a huge calamity those that are left get together to start again . I love this song and this a beautiful human video!
Now I am finishing with some advice the best I have ever had! “Better Get To Livin’ ” When I was at the lowest edd of my recent life I came across this wonderful video . Obviously made by a lovely young man, who I hope is well happy and living a good life taking Dolly Parton’s advice
Goodness this lad his smile and Dolly’s words have saved me more than once!!
Okay sorry this was not my usual entree but love hugs and good vibes to you all !! Oh! and yes BETTER GET TO LIVIN!
PLEASE CHECK THE OTHERS OUT !

I thought you would post the same Bjork as Johnny.. I looked for her. Why not? She grows on you.:-)
You had the same trouble Eva and I did. It was difficult to get past the awful to the hope. Thanks for ending with Dolly.
Thank you Bear , yes it was hard to get to the hope but we all got there , yes Dolly was good and the smiley lad God bless him!
Hello, my dear lady…. I haven’t been able to get around the net much, but am taking a few moments to go through a few of your posts, while I’m in a relatively pain-free moment here…. I’m glad you’re able to get posted so much… there is a lot of powerful writing going on at your site…. I only regret that you have the life issues present to create that much powerful angst in yourself, and wish there was something I could do, other than empathize…. Want me to send over my pet assassin? Or, wanna borrow my gun?… just kidding….. or not, as you wish. Just let me know, and it’s a done deal…… 😉
Any who, I’ve been writing, as you know, but that is about all I get to on the net each day….. but, you always make time to come read mine, so I like to get over here when I can….I hope all is reasonably well with you, and wish you all the best…. You are loved, my dear lady, and hopefully, that helps…. Take care, & Blessed Be….
Ned, aka gigoid….
Hi Ned how wonderful to hear from you. I am so sorry that you are suffering so. I shall have a word with the man upstairs to see if he can ease off on you some! It is always fun to to visit your page …even if just to listen to a rant or a pearl. I have found new determination I need to write there is so much in me I just have to get it out! You are forgetting I have my own tame assassin Vlad the Vampire Bear , no need of guns or bullets he prefers to use his fangs!It helps to know I am am loved it helps a lot , you just concentrate on being well and happy! Big big hugs! xxxxxxxxxxx
Ha ha, it was of course the bad touch that i was thinking of yesterday whenI mentioned those cheeky chaps lol
They always make me laugh!!
Willow, you almost had me in tears. The kind that run down your cheeks. This is a very good representation of humanity, and I’m glad you closed with a bit of hope. ♡ Bjork is an amazing woman. I suggest “The Hunter”, “Violently happy” and “Hyperballad”. Those are among my favorites.
Yes all those are among my favourite too. I have a lot of her work. I am pleased that the post touched you, we humans are very complex.
