Whispered Revolution

Corporations avoiding tax is almost as shocking as celebs having bad / illegal sex or politicians lying or fiddling their expenses or Islamic Clerics being called "radical".  It's inevitable, predictable and come the whispered revolution there will be no more religion, crap cardboard coffee shops, on-line box shifters, bloated phone companies exploiting the exploited, clunky biased search engines, socially excluding networking sites and no Big Bad Blue. That'll be fine then and we'll just have a perfect world full of Nissan Leafs, green tea cafes, wind up laptops, wind turbines, Linda McC sausages, smooth free-jazz radio, rhubarb wine, equal rights for badgers and non competitive sports. Bollox.

Today we removed everything from the garage, checked it, mulled over it and then put it back exactly where was in the first place but in the process somehow forming a slighter bigger pile than before. We are settling in however. Meanwhile that cats experienced the outside world for the first time, it was touch and go for a moment and then they...went. We're now poised with the remote controls, torches and some cold cut chicken to try to entice them back out of the cold black void and into the warmth.


  1. Hi,

    I am helping to build a writing course by a professor at Duke University. It will be taught on an online platform called Coursera that reaches a world-wide audience and is offered free of charge. I wondered if you would allow us to use the first 5 seconds of "Writing Backwards" royalty free.

    The course is part of Gates Foundation Grant to reach non-traditional students and we are not allowed to use any materials that are not open source.

    We would credit you fully and you can assume your song will be heard 10,000 or more students.

    Thanks for your consideration!
