Propaganda Machine

Posted in Jonny Voices, Musings, Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2010 by Jonny Voices

The propaganda machine speeds on relentless

And we can’t do a damn thing to prevent this,

We sit down and take in the lies we all read,

But don’t hear of the tyrant’s or their filthy greed,

Of editors and columnists, of readers and of men

Fearful of the world reported not the world we ken,

Here we sit and dwell till poverty gives abode,

I don’t know any of the families living down my road,

The papers say their kids will stab me

And if I report them the police black flag me,

Estates where once harmonious dreams tried to thrive

Turned out dank and pissed stained where only the strong survive,

The weak are left behind with a sallow look of brain,

Kid’s with knives and suicide is all that oft’ remain,

And false the man who stands with poise and grace,

Preaching to the masses from his second face,

He tells us all is well and we can be so safe

But naught have I read to justify this wraith,

Harbinger of lies but not a paper type,

This propaganda machine spreads some fucking tripe.

Dissidents don’t Die

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2010 by Jonny Voices

I got no interest I got no reason,

I’m the lost generation out of season,

I cower in the freezin’ cold of labour

Unable to be a dreamer or gazer,

My light is dark and my shadow’s long

And all my priorities are very wrong,

And the dissidents are there and thriving,

In every vote there is one hiding,

Waiting for the straw to break,

Hoping Jack pays for his mistake,

The information nazi’s are out in force,

Feeding us a liar’s discourse,

We can’t demonize the already evil

Or hold them accountable if illegal,

We don’t have freedom to living

And the government tells us when we’re forgiving,

And the afterlife is such sweet release,

Compared to economics swift decrease,

And the blood on the hands of those who stood by

Will paint a picture of hell in the sky

And those who continue to vote for a lie

Will be painted in blood after they die.

Orchestrated Violence

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2010 by Jonny Voices

Orchestra plays with I engaged as conductor
A fist wound with anger and vengeance and rupture
Round this sweet stick held aloft to the sky
To dance with the devil’s callow orchestra I.

My wand comes a crashing with symbols and screams
At the war of my waving and tearing of dreams
Crescendo are willing weary but strong
Waging this war of the waltz so long.

Deny thy sweet note and forsake thy shrill aim
Percussion brings rhythm noise and aggression the same
To force out sweet horns from homes and abode
Gentle strings unwilling are swept through the road.

Swathing through bodies acoustically dreamt
With my wand of loose morals twisted and bent
Cleansing a march directing I see
With bitter-sweet vocals raging at me.

Scream scream fat lady with all you can spare
I rule with wand clenched fist passion and flare
Through director approach you must all abide
Through enforcement and power you all must now hide.

Lyrics I dream at place my grand scheme
Children new notes so early I preen
Gather them with furious hatred to strike
Rumble young notes frustration and fury alike.

Bringing precise control over my band
Each has learnt the supreme example I am
And each must now know where never to tread
For each has seen what horrors my wand may embed.

So fight for me sounds to dampen all other
Rise up a machine stand against him your brother
So fight for those that take splendour amongst you
orchestra spare no thought for what may become you.

Bleed for I conductor director and king
Bleed for decrees promises freedom and sin
Rise up machine and sacrifice kin for all night
Lay down dear orchestra, break ranks the third reich.

Horns adorn the streets oh once more
And strings fear never the knock of your door
Percussion more melody let go the word die
If only not arbeit but musick macht frei.

Vile Tongue

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2010 by Jonny Voices

Vile are the lies
From government lips,
Their evil quotes
And sadistic quips,
Vile is the state
You’ve left me in,
Unable to afford
The innocent sin,
Vile is the ruin
Our once great land,
Driving stout patriots
To new shores and sand,
Vile is the control
In which we’re locked,
Disallowed freedom
Till your gun is cocked,
Vile is the time,
Mine you take,
Your greed consumes
Your lust to slake,
Vile is the point
That became unclear,
Only laid dying
Can I now hear,
Vile is the dignity,
I was deprived,
Naught for money
I had survived,
Vile is my poverty
A gift of your’s,
Cast down confused
These weary laws,
Vile is the legacy
Forged by force,
At my expense,
But of course,
Vile is your contempt,
As loyal subject
My life decaying
From your neglect,
Vile are your rules
Never twice the same,
Explained to foreigners
Behind my shame,
Vile is your crime
With tax i fund,
Yet i commit naught
And still i’m shunned,
Vile all you are,
One and last,
These new mistakes,
Once were past.
Vile is the sight,
when the old die young,
For young know fear
Of your vile tongue

Armed and Dangerous

I see the government lies like a gun upon my table

Politicians like bullets that make my gun be able,

Society will aim you cleanly at my face

Religion makes me pull the trigger when faced with my disgrace,

A thousand random strangers pass me as I’m bleeding

Spit or kick at me or ignore me like I’m sleeping,

Law wont protect he who’ll choose to guard himself

And hospitals change the rules regardless of your health,

The point I’m trying to make here using only 10 lines or less

Is don’t support authority as it’ll drive you to your deaths.

Am I Angry?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2010 by Jonny Voices

Am I angry about anything?

You fucking bet

Encroaching on your liberties

Or oppression in Tibet,

Smarmy politicians

Lying to your face

Denial of all other life

Living out in space,

The stigma of all binge drinkers

Bankers, think tank thinkers

War, recession, copious tax

Talk of job and pay cut backs,

Job markets and depressing views

Also “Party political news”

Maniacal malaise, misconduct

No small wonder we feel fucked,

Hoodies, chavs and petty crime

Judges, murderers who do no time,

And the biggest crims we see walk free

As Mandy fucks university,

Hours I waste and the hours I wont

Weeks I sleep and the months I don’t,

Metaphors for my bleeding heart

Whores and lovers worlds apart,

Religion, power, money and greed

Taxation on the legal weed,

The cost of fuel, the price of living

Fuck you if I’m unforgiving,

I’ll take my chance and I’ll say it proud,

Fuck you cunt and your fucking crowd.

Bad Education Good Whore

Posted in Jonny Voices, Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2010 by Jonny Voices

Thanks to internet dating

Or the music in the club,

I could never find a woman

For a sexy quick old rub,

And now we got equality

And women have a vote,

I’m just fucking frowned upon

you dirty pervert scrote,

And all the girls at work

Will avoid me like the mumps,

Coz I’m a miserable bastard

Arrogant bearded cunt,

And when it comes to sex

If I don’t want fat and rough,

I gotta pay some money

For a stunnin bit of muff,

But thanks to dear old labour

All the hotties are now jobless,

And maybe a few quid

Will quickly get them topless,

The uni’s sure wont have them

But you know I fucking will,

Cos 50 pounds an hour

Can buy some cheap old thrill,

You say she looks respectable

When she’s drinking in your town,

But I gave her money for her drinks

When she was going down,

So if your daughter lives alone

How’s she pay the rent,

Single bedroom for incalls

Prostitutional intent,

How’s your girlfriend feeling

Her education’s poor,

Her career path is McDonald’s

Or she could become a whore,

£4.83 an hour

From 18 till 21,

Or 100 and hour

For sucking on my dong,

I find it all ironic

That the government hates whores,

But pushes more and more of them

To work behind closed doors,

They refuse to give out options

To so many of the young,

So some of them have dead-end jobs

But most of them have none,

Some of them have kids

Cos the government pays their way,

Some become beauticians

For fucking lousy pay,

Some will work for nothing

And some will work in shops,

But more so now than ever

Some will work with cocks,

So if your child is precious

And you want to give the best,

And stop old men paying

To suck upon her chest,

you better make your government

Fund more Universities,

So places aren’t like gold dust

And your girls get off their knees.

The follwing post is examining a sickening viral spreading hate, think about it.

The following post is BULLSHIT!!!
Shame on you UK !!!!!! the only country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment – and our troops are fighting a war without decent kit !!!!yet we donate £50 million to the people of Haiti … 99% of people won’t have the guts to copy and repost this
Lets review this work of trashy fiction a little more closely:
Shame on you UK !!!!!!  –  There should be no shame when you realise that the point of this post is to demonise a people for attempting to help those who are dying.  Thisshould be your first clue that this is a work of hate and racism and little else.
the only country where we have homeless without shelter, Not true at all, this “only” word is another proving addition that seeks to unite the readers through an idea of frustration and hate of all outsiders.   In reality, this problem and all the other stated are world issues, they affect every nation on this planet; especially Haiti to which the article is referring…  this is nothing more than an oxy moron by a total moron.  Homelessness in the U.K is at an estimated 4 in 1000 people and with a population ofaround 60million, that’s a lot of people.  In addition to our own numbers, add the extra 100 million plus homeless around the world, find a charity that supports some of them and donate, here are a couple:
children going to bed without eating, –  Yes, poverty is another huge issue, a huge global issue.  Here is an exert from http://www.ippr.org.uk/pressreleases/?id=2965:
“Although 600,000 children have been lifted out of poverty in the last ten years, the total number of poor children in working households has stayed the same at 1.4 million. Half of all poor children now live in a working household. “
This simply means that your employer is not willing to pay you enough to live and your government is not making them do so.  The same government that is affording the banks and oil companies free reign to dish out multi billion pound bonuses and price hikes on essential products but is unwilling to use any of its central fund to make enough of a difference to count.  As for global poverty, At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day according to  http://www.globalissues.org/article/26/poverty-facts-and-stats which has some very interesting facts.  And again, here are a couple of charities:
elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment – Again, this is just another matter which you should be asking your government about.  About the failure for the N.H.S to prioritise on issues such as dementia, for the governments allowing the cost of living and the prices of heating, water, food and other basic necessities to skyrocket.  This is in a country that offers free healthcare, you don’t need fancy statistics to be aware that we are one of the few countries which do this.  If weconclude the above to be true and poverty and homelessness being huge issues, then it is obvious that they simply cannot afford to obtain medical help.  If you can spare a thought then do, if you can spare more, likewise:
and our troops are fighting a war without decent kit !!!! –  This is your governments fault and nothing you contribute&nbs
p;to any charity will ever be enough, especially considering that you already pay tax and it is tax that should be funding our armed forces/  Whether you believe in the validity of the war or not, you have to believe that the soldiers don‘t deserve much of what they are being put through.  Your government, the government “ruling” over the U.K has run not only the country into ruin but also those who live within it.  If you would like to donate to those involved in the armed forces then follow the link below.
yet we donate £50 million to the people of Haiti …  – Whatever money we give to the people of the world, whomever they may be, is fully justified as long as you can afford it because, if you can afford it you obviously aren’t in the type of poverty this post is telling you about.  More to the point, if you think this is money that is being takenaway from “your” U.K, you are wrong.  Think about how much money you “give” your government in tax,  approximately £606,661,000,000 (using 2008 nominal GDP measured in dollars, and converting using 2009 conversion rate) and then think about what £50m is actually worth in a country whose population is over (probably) 60m people…  That’s less than £1 per person., get a grip.
99% of people won’t have the guts to copy and repost this –  I hope that 100% percent won’t be stupid enough to do so!

If you don’t like something change it, if you can’t change it, ask someone that can and help them.

When you can stay at home all day

And no honest work be done,

Yours will be my yearly pay,

And which is more, you’ll get a house, you scum.
