Nietzsche tried

Nietzsche tried
Tasted the wine
Tasted the wine
It didn't work

Nietzsche tried
A pure joy of life
Causeless joy
Called himself a fool
Called himself a poet
Tried real hard

Nietzsche tried
Shattering an old table of values
Writing a new with chalks of dust
Evaporating into cosmic insanity

ECCE HOMO SAPIENS
ECCE HOMO LUDENS
ECCE HOMO INSIPIENS

Words Against Death

WORDS AGAINST DEATH

All the immortals are moral:
Tubercular Kafka spared Treblinka
Lunatic Nietzsche banging a piano to oblivion
Great Tolstoy escaping to a railroad coach,
Gentle Yeats frigid at Ben Bulben.

What lives is a work and that imperfectly:
A thousand bankrupt eyes ferreting the hearts of dead poets
Seeking confirmation for some strange emotion,
Doing the work in the course, being ‘intellectual’,
Satisfying a wicked ambition for
Knowledge or Love or Understanding.

Do these absurd gropings constitute an adequate remembrance?
And if they do, if deep within the heart of some wise reader
There lurks a true Nietzschean spirit,
Will Nietzsche live because of it?
Is Remembrance no matter how deeply touched by love,

David Duchovny

If you have Darwin, Christ and Nietzsche, they're all going to talk at once. You need somebody who listens.

Federico Fellini

Nietzsche claimed that his genius was in his nostrils and I think that is a very excellent place for it to be.

I became the stage for the great argument between Nietzsche and Rousseau. I was the extra ready to take on all the roles.

It was Nietzsche who first made us conscious of the significance of the individual as a term in the evolutionary process-in that part of the evolutionary process which has still to take place.

That was when Neil discovered Jack Nietzsche. They went off and pretty much came up with that by themselves, but I thought it was a great song, and I was more than happy to do my harmony parts on it.

I Proffer Not, Acquiescence!

I have stood forlorn, at the very precipice
Of what Dante coined 'The Eternal Abyss';
Yet, I have seen too, beautificence, sans pareil
And have been inspired by each, all the while!

I have seen acts, diabolical and gifts, Empyrean,
Yet, through it all, I live by a creed, Nietzschean:
'That which does not kill you, makes you stronger',
Though, I shan't stand by idly and do naught any longer!

A precious gifting hath been purloined, from me and mine-
I shan't, its allowance, forgive, though each may otherwise be fine!
I must make known, this scourge, and its remedy, ensure-
To this end, I will do what I must, yet my intentions remain pure!
Until this glory is restored, there exists a void, in its absence-
The lament of my heart is why I proffer not, acquiescence!

Maurice Harris,16 March 2010

Asphalt

We're charcoal black and under the cruel burning Sun
We melt with gravel and make you a smooth surface road.
You accelerate like jets your boisterous proud vehicles
Hit poor souls on the way and run away to hell or paradise
With an Angel face
Only white God knows?

* 'You are rewarding a teacher poorly if you remain a pupil.'
-Friedrich Nietzsche

“reality”

Subjective mind creates its reality
Along with a substratum of duality
Mixed with a smidgen of credulity
Yet 'neath a soul sees only totality

ROTMS


‘As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality ’
Einstein,1922

“Truth is merely a refinement of ignorance”
Nietzsche

How many times has God died for me?

HOW MANY TIMES HAS GOD DIED FOR ME?

How many times has God died for me?
Yes, he’s died
And time and time again
As I’ve written in my book
How many times has God died for me?

How many times has God died for me?
A useful if cryptic phrase
Nietzsche coined in the 19th century
“When Zarathustra was alone, however,
he said to his heart:
'Could it be possible!
This old saint in the forest
hath not yet heard of it,
that God is dead! '

How many times has God died for me?
Each time I’ve had a paradigm shift

Jami Nduwimana Petty [With You Only I Have Had Perfect Communications]

How now can I forget so soon
How when we first met
Just two years ago
In the nook and thorns
Of my beloved Africa
And you, far away in America
I was bathing in hell and fire
And the other angels watching
And singing hymns of praises
To the almighty in highest
Praise be to religion
Mohammed and Jesus Christ.
Who invent hell, fire and heaven,
But of cause the camel
Can never pass through the
Needles eyes at the gate
And so certain was my fate
And they all knew how bland a sinner I was
That they needed no Minos
To show me my place in hell.

There's a dark side to each and every human soul. We wish we were Obi-Wan Kenobi, and for the most part we are, but there's a little Darth Vadar in all of us. Thing is, this ain't no either or proposition. We're talking about dialectics, the good and the bad merging into us. You can run but you can't hide. My experience Face the darkness, stare it down. Own it. As brother Nietzsche said, being human is a complicated gig. Give that old dark night of the soul a hug Howl the eternal yes.

Some Fear No Hell

The serious run deep into their minds
Some never come out

Have you seen the hunt of the Spartans?
Have you witnessed the demise of Nietzsche?
Audiences brave with gold
Time running like a disease

So tired of holding on to the duel nature
We struggle on giving our time away
Accomplishing nothing
Prosecuted by our conscience
Some have lost it
Some no longer love
Some no longer care
Let it burn
Let it slide
Some dance like freedom
Some fear no hell

The Nun

She was black.
A salvation army nun,
and I was just me,
though richer than

usual,
waiting
for my connection
to take me to heaven

to my version of God.
She asked and I gave.
“You are a good man”
she told me.

“God will not forget you.”
“God is dead.” I replied.'
“..and you don’t need

Mirror of Medusa

Minotaur dream polemical armies
Faceless men of the herd soul
Stop the flow of a golden age
The new man of Nietzsche
Crown your beast with accolades
Laurels of monocle monolith
Labyrinth of perpetual Main Street
Sacrosanct leader of the bland
Gated communities for the lofty

Horizon where Poseidon drowns
The sea gives up its wounded cry
Green Ithaca turns into wormwood
Earth shall revolt like fire warriors
The four winds are restless prophets
Great gates are opening from time
Blind metamorphosis of the dull
Dionysus is ravaged with angst
Sirens of Ulysses sing like funerals

Fearful Part 1

we are born in pain, uncomfortable and wet,
and because we are born we are mortal,
because we are mortal, we fear that one day,
we will cease to be,

pain hurts. we fear the rebirth of pain,
desire love to overcome fear,
pleasure to forget moments of pain,
many need God to take the burden,

because what we are,
our most driving emotion, mood and sensation
is fear, which lives with us inside and out,
it is a wonder, our psyche and hysic can cope,

courage is only a bluff,
sentiments a history of emotions,
moods and sensations, we call nostalgia or disgust,
fear that something will appear or disappear,

Michael The Arc Angel

Hunted in the abstract painting
The lions of post modernism
Rules are gone
No eternity lingers in the background
Endless gray
Crushing freedom
The law becomes transit mores
Bought and sold
Dealt like a market
We dissipate into the state
The state becomes the globe
Numbers and calculations
Armies with spears as long as 1984
Science a commodity
Politics a new world order
Secular humanism laughed at by Nietzsche
Genetically modified food chain
Genetically modified disease soon to come
Genetically modified man is coming
Biogenesis the new via evolution

When Not To Gaze.

Have you read any Kierkegaard?
She asked her blues eyes searching
Yours almost reaching right in and
Making a grab for your soul. No
You replied wondering how many
Guys had spied her breasts tucked
Up neat and tight like some birthday
Gift and not been tempted to reach
And touch. Well you should she said
Better than that Nietzsche or Sartre
And she sat down in the chair by the
Window waving a hand for the waiter
And crossing one leg over the other.
No lady crosses her legs and sits like
That said Mother in your head some
Memory stirred. She ordered for you
Both in her best French and studied
You with silent stare and you trying
Hard not to gaze at her unclothed thighs
Breathed out deep and closed your eyes.
