I. Know Thyself / Know Thyself (004.1)

[I-004.1] Know Thyself - The Wisdom of Ancient Greece

Know Thyself

A beggar, a prince and a poet.
Arrive at the same time in town.
The beggar looking for food.
The Prince, a kingdom and crown.

Why are you not hungry?” he begs.
I live in a world without need.”
Don’t you want your own Kingdom?
Why would I want to make the world bleed?

The beggar and prince both baffled.
Look at each other in surprise.
Oh my god, I’m a beggar…’
The Prince orders both our demise.

II. Know Thyself / Devotion (004.2)

[I-004.2] Devotion


I hate when woman congregate,
but keep their mouths to themselves.
I decide to occupy the garden,
watch some crawling shelves.

I dream of touching my woman,
the same way I grab my beer.
Imagine the horror of bottles,
discussing the mouth they fear.

Women talk and talk and talk,
exchange tearful emotion.
I pop the cap of my bottled beer,
drink with endless devotion.

III. Know Thyself / Astonished (004.3)

[I-004.3] Astonished look


You leap onto my lap a cat.
Besotted with pleasure and rum.
I protest to reading a script,
but my hand is already on your bum.

You spin and purr and tease.
Your mouth kisses both my knees.
Angered, I grab your cast.
You respond, as if hit by a blast.

Astonished, I stare at your face.
Shocked… surprised by what I see.
“I hate you, you fucking bastard!”
And the lioness sets herself free.

[I-000.4] The Desperate Pose of a Beggar


You sit on the side of the pavement.
Your back a display long broke.
I stare at you, this old man…
A ruin of what was once awoke.

In your dreams you’re still a boy,
but your arms and legs won’t move.
Stained coat, lonely trousers,
defeat, decay, dirty your groove.

Please sir, can you spare me something?”
With a shiver I realize who you are.
Your eyes see only this dimension.
Known to a soul torn by a scar.

A body they chose not to love.
A mind they chose not to see.
I fall onto my knees and weep.
I am the beggar that is thee.

Benjamin.Franklin - the Polymath Flame of Liberty

The timeless Wisdom of polymath Benjamin Franklin, writer, scientist, inventor, statesman, diplomat, printer, publisher and political philosopher.

Freedom of speech is the great bulwark of liberty; they prosper and die together: And it is the terror of traitors and oppressors, and a barrier against them. It produces excellent writers, and encourages men of fine genius.”

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.”

If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking.”

“It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.”

“Without freedom of thought, there can be no such thing as wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech; which is the right of every man as far as by it he does not hurt or control the right of another; and this is the only check it ought to suffer and the only bounds it ought to know…. Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freedom of speech, a thing terrible to traitors.”

“Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.”

“Where liberty dwells there is my country.”

“Security without liberty is called prison.”

“They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

War is when the government tells you who the bad guy is.
Revolution is when you decide that for yourself.”

“Little minds think and talk about people.
Average minds think and talk about things and actions.
Great minds think and talk about ideas.”

“Beer is proof that God wants us to be happy.”

“To find out a girl’s faults, praise her to her girlfriends.”

“If better is possible, good is not enough.”

“Common sense without education, is better than education without common sense.”

“Common sense is something that everyone needs, few have, and none think they lack.”

“Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle.”

“When you’re down to nothing, God is up to something. The faithful see the invisible, believe the incredible and then receive the impossible.”

“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain – and most fools do.”

“Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who kept their swords.”

“I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them comfortable in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.”

“In my youth, I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

“Out of adversity comes opportunity.”

“Motivation is when your dreams put on work clothes.”

“Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.”

“Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor liberty to purchase power.”

“Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.”

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

“It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright.”

Simon – When Tragedy Strikes (003)

I. Simon / Simon

Simon - When Death Strikes


Old man leaves his ruinous flat,
To visit a Broadway show.
Politely greets the drunkard,
who vacated long ago.

He drives the same old station car.
Meticulously kept over the years.
A retired registered accountant.
He no longer keeps track of his tears.

He woke this summer morning.
Eager to see the face of his wive.
She died a decade earlier.
After a long cancerous strife.

He’s convinced it’s almost Sunday,
but’s its noon, Friday at best.
He keeps forgetting his medicine.
Snores as he tries to rest.

Decides to visit his eldest son.
Who left the country long ago.
Has trouble reading the signs,
because of the falling snow.

Hurry up Jimmy“, mother yells.
Trisha and Joy already in the back.
Little Jimmy wrestles with his shoe,
wails about laces and slack.

Oh, for crying out loud…”
Mother walks back to the house.
What’s the matter?” she demands.
Inspecting her little spouse.

I don’t want to wear Spongebob,”
it makes me look so silly.”
She shakes her head with a sad smile.
He’s such a nilly willy.

Batman leaves the house.
Swings his cape onto the front seat.
You look scary.” Joy whispers.
Trisha tinkers with her feet.

Jimmy quickly weighs his options.
Decides he’s rather cool.
Better to be a mean bat,
than a sponge who plays the fool.

Mummy, ” Joy shrieks, “I need to pee.”
Ok, come with mummy to the little T
Where are we going?” Batman asks.
Trisha tells him, it’s one of her tasks.

Does anyone else need to pee?
They shake their head as one.
She shifts the angle of the mirror,
somewhat blinded by the sun.

Can I please ride a brown pony?
Will they have strawberry ice?
It’s going to be a long fare…’
“Simon’s a good man,” was mother’s advice.

She turns her car onto the highway.
As measured and careful as she can.
On days of leisure and pleasure.
She’s annoyed to have Simon as her man.

Always on duty with the Navy.
He loves to sail the distant seas.
Mummy, my cape is stuck…”
She looks at his urgent pleas.

Mummy, please help me, I’m stuck.”
She hears this strange humming.
A witness later declared,
Neither saw it coming.”

Mummy LOOK!” Batman screams.
The collision disintegrates both cars.
The sight of his severed head.
Left some with lifelong scars.

The ambulance driver arrives home.
His wife looks at him and cries.
“It kills me to see children…”
He sobs, while part of him dies.

Simon looks at the Ocean.
Several years passed by.
Sometimes there are moments,
when he feels the need to cry.

Jimmy’s body was in a closed casket.
The girls burried with their Mother.
The old man’s cremated remains,
were scattered among some other.

Simon… is a man.
Who suffered more than most.
Sometimes late at night,
I sit beside him by the coast.

Mako The Poet

John Adams

The timeless Wisdom of John Adams, the Second President of the United States.

“It is weakness rather than wickedness which renders men unfit to be trusted with unlimited power.”

“There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.”

“The Constitution is …the greatest single effort of national deliberation that the world has ever seen.”

“Be not intimidated… nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.”

“Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.”

“This is a revolution, damn it! We’re going to have to offend somebody!”

“Ideology is the science of idiots.”

“The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.”

“To believe all men honest is folly. To believe none is something worse.”

“It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished. But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, “whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection, and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of security and justice whatsoever.”

“An honest, sensible, humane man, . . . laboring to do good rather than be rich, to be useful rather than make a show, living in modest simplicity . . . is really the most respectable man in society, and makes himself and all about him most happy.”

“Ambition is the subtlest beast of the intellectual and moral field. It is wonderfully adroit in concealing itself from its owner.”

“Property monopolized or in the possession of a few is a curse to mankind.”

“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a country. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.”

“Our whole system of banks is a violation of every honest principle of banks. There is no honest bank but a bank of deposit. A bank that issues paper at interest is a pickpocket or a robber. But the delusion will have its course. … An aristocracy is growing out of them that will be as fatal as the feudal barons if unchecked in time.”

“Power always thinks… that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all his laws.”

“Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.”

“When public virtue is gone, when the national spirit is fled the republic is lost in essence, though it may still exist in form.”

“We have no Constitution which functions in the absence of a moral people.”

“We may please ourselves with the prospect of free and popular governments. But there is great danger that those governments will not make us happy. God grant they may. But I fear that in every assembly, members will obtain an influence by noise, not sense. By meanness, not greatness. By ignorance, not learning. By contracted hearts, not large souls.”

“There is nothing I dread so much as the division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our constitution.”

“It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives.”

“Always stand on principle even if you stand alone.”

“Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war.”

[001.1] Statue of a Beautiful Greek Woman


It must be achieved through skill,
otherwise it doesn’t count.
I silence my general with a gesture,
before I majestically dismount.

Why should I care about this place?
I point towards the city wall.
My Lord“, she whispers meekly.
By thine hand… it shall fall.”

Send her on her way with a wave.
Ponder my enemies deceit.
To send me the princess upfront,
tastes a little too much like defeat.

Toy Store

I stroll into my local toy store,
in search of gifts and attention.
Look mother, it’s Mako The Poet.
Oh God,” she whispers with apprehension.

I’ll need an N-strike Elite Strongarm.”
And one huge Slight Blast Armour.
Extend my imaginary sable.
To chop off the head of some farmer.

But Sir, you’re not supposed to…”
Jump onto this skateboard cruiser.
Clumsiness clutches whereas gravity shifts,
this’ll turn into a rightful bruiser…’

Covered with Skylanders I moan.
The crash has left me somewhat confused.
When pigs arrive to drag me from the scene,
I’ll admit I felt a little abused.

IV. Mako / Who Am I? (001.4)

[I-001.4] Greek Statue of a Muscular Torso

Who Am I?

Who am I in this world?
A drunk. a warrior, a lover?
Hazed, dazed and media numb.
Truth seems hard to discover.

What if I act like a thumb?
A tool useful to others.
Capable of friendly gestures.
Valued by leaders and mothers.

Never present in any row.
My body seems hard to find.
Blessed with a warrior exterior.
My Spirit leans towards kind.

Naked, I admire my feet.
Lovely buggers to behold.
Steadfast in many battles.
Never allowed me to fold.

Kneecaps wonderfully smooth.
I admire my lingering dick.
A little hairy for the summer.
Thank god, I’m rather thick.

Balls, bullocks, beef.
Slaughter, kill, maim.
My penis penetrates your vagina.
What a bloody silly game.

Is it better to be a woman?
To receive the world on your back?
To bleed and feed and nurture.
To slide a bra on your rack.

I look at my stomach muscles.
Four out of six can be seen.
Admire my chest and shoulders.
Smirk at the places we’ve been.

You wear this light skinned blouse.
With a fashionable scarf on top.

You sway and bend till they drop.

“I need to go to church…”
You whisper with a wily grin.
God, have mercy on my soul.’
Commence to commit my sin.

I scour the length of the train.
Dwarf with a sign on his back.
Storm seems to signal upheaval,
Maybe my eyes have gone whack.

First he moves to my left.
A look of unmistakable thirst.
I check the date of the six-pack,
Well, this is kind of a first…

It’s not the beer,” he grins.
I’m really a really small man.”
Well fuck me, they call me Mako…”
Throw him the breadth of a can.

George Washington

The timeless Wisdom of George Washington, First President of the United States.

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. Experience has taught us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession, and when the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.”

It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.”

“Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.”

Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people. The general government . . . can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any despotic or oppresive form so long as there is any virtue in the body of the people.”

“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”

“Few men possess the virtue to withstand the highest bidder.”

“Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire, called conscience.”

Freedom and Property Rights are inseparable. You can’t have one without the other.”

Guard against the impostures of fake (warmonger) patriotism.”

Over grown military establishments are under any form of government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty.”

Remember, officers and soldiers, that you are fighting for the blessings of liberty.”

But if the laws are to be so trampled upon with impunity, and a minority is to dictate to the majority, there is an end put at one stroke to republican government, and nothing but anarchy and confusion is to be expected thereafter.”

History and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”

Where are our Men of abilities? Why do they not come forth to save their Country?

99% of failures come from people who make excuses.”

The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.”

Lawyer Girls

The three of you enter the train.
My eyes conduce roughly cool.
First a lengthy brunette.
Second a prissy blond jewel.

The third a chubby sunshine,
who smiles and rubs her tummy.
Surrounded by lawyer girls,
I feel a mischievous dummy.

The long one speaks at length,
about the proof of a cash machine.
The blond keeps shifting her hips,
as if she knows where I’ve just been.

Chubby nods with vigor.
Her arguments well displayed.
My side-sweep of the brunette,
leaves prissy and chubby dismayed.

The legs of Sally are dazzling.
An anthem of shapely zest.
Ladies… I’m a wanted criminal.
Make a passionate plea for my arrest.

[I-002.2] Classical Statue of a Naked Female from behind


I grab your lovely buttocks.

Sometimes you’re a truffle.
Today you scent of sea.

Your hair a glistering ocean,
I sniff and lick your salt.
You giggle, wiggle and slap me,
but it’s really not my fault.

You stand in front of the mirror.
Your nakedness burns my soul.
Would the scoundrel hand me my dress?
Grumpy, I linger, grin and role.

Gina II

Your long elegant torso.
Presents me with a ‘fait accompli’.
I feel this surge of gratitude.
For what a woman can be.

Your walk is unbelievable.
As sexy as I’ve ever seen.
Every part of your wondrous body.
Seems to know exactly what I mean.

The grace with which you lean forward.
To grant me a taste of your potion.
The British may keep their Lord Nelson.
I’ll settle for your devotion.

[I-002.5] Image of two powerful wrestlers engaged


A young boy and his brothers.
Clearly from different mothers.
Wrestle about the station.
Bustle with rowdy elation.

They run and chase and yell.
I grin at their youthful spell.
They take the stairs by storm.
Determined to prove their form.

Rounds on the opposite platform.
Relish movements in tact.
Exuberant hit-and-run punching.
They laugh at the matter-of-fact.

Stand on the bench together.
Would as their benchmark tool.
Whomever dares jump the furthest.
May treat the rest like a fool.

VI. Mako / Marcus Licinius Crassus (002.6)

[I-002.6] Statue of Marcus Licinius Crassus

Marcus Licinius Crassus

No fun when it rains all day,
with ice-cream on your mind.
When you long for colorful sprinkles,
yet the world feels so unkind.

I open the cupboard accustomed,
to hardship and human deceit.
Unwrap my nutty Cadbury,
while I dream of a new pair of feet.

Imagine I’m walking in Russia.
Plenty of vodka and beer.
A party with Putin and Kasparov,
Would not last long I fear.

KGB boots me out of Russia,
Off to the Colosseum I’ll go.
Mesmerized by Rome and Italy.
Gladiators fearful of snow.

Through mud I flee for my life.
Got caught with Caesar’s wife.
Mark Antony thunders my trail,
but he fails to tip the scale.

I visit centurions in the desert.
Opposite an empire wry as sand.
A million arrows await them.
Where Crassus orders them to stand.

Never, Never, NEVER attack an enemy.
Who masters the wisdom of timely retreat.
I’ll have my ice-cream tomorrow,
and laugh at yesterday’s defeat.

[I-002.7] Thomas Jefferson - Founding Father and Author of The Declaration of Independence

The timeless Wisdom of Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and Third President of the United States:

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.”

There is no justification for taking away individuals’ freedom in the guise of public safety.”

Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health.”

When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty.

The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”

When you abandon freedom to achieve security, you lose both and deserve neither.”

“The press is useless when it abandons itself to falsehood.”

No government should be without critics. If its intentions are good then it has nothing to fear from criticism.

I think myself that we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious. Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have … The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases. The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.”

A democratic society depends upon an informed and educated citizenry.”

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

No generation has a right to contract debts greater than can be paid off during the course of its own existence.”

A private central bank issuing the public currency is a greater menace to the liberties of the people than a standing army. We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.”

The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.”

“I have sworn upon the altar of God Eternal, hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Health Store

I visit my local health store.
There’s this blond with a radiant smile.
Ask her to show me some products,
watch her walk all the while.

She has this nice thin body.
Her eyes are welcoming and kind.
I point towards the Magnesium,
so she has to stretch her behind.

What would that fish oil do?
I acquire with a silly grin.
My belly the size of a whale,
needs more than tail or fin.

I bet she tastes like chocolate‘,
but its actually my protein bar.
Curse the glamorous cereals
and charge my electric car.

III. Poetry / Paganini (000.3)

[I-000.3] Image of Standing Violin


Mosaic flowery violins,
Paganini brightens my day.
I munch some laden sugar snacks,
to recover from morning play.

I’ve been hired to give this lecture,
about Liberty’s meaning to man.
I’m preoccupied with her vagina,
but I do the best I can.

My eyes are drawn to this woman.
Twenty, when breasts are best.
That was quite an impressive speech…”
but you cannot save the West.”

The Nazis did us all in,”
she explains with a serious look.
What about America and Eugenics?
I throw her a little hook.

Her face turns red with anger.
Why was everything destroyed?
I invite her to join me for dinner,
As she muses about what she enjoyed.

America supplied oil to the Nazis,”
Sweden sold them all their steel.”
She languishes a beautiful smile,
when she grasps how she makes me feel.

If you had to pick a season,”
a time of year to be born…”
but my tackiness and teasing,
are met with genuine scorn.

All my friends think I’m crazy…”
I think you’re a woman with a heart.”
Her doubtful eyes dart left and right,
while she spreads herself apart.

Sadness… fear… joy… struggle within.
She has me strangely moved.
All this talk about Justice and Humanity.
Maybe my taste has improved.

[I-000.4] 476 - The Collapse of Rome


You prance your red summer hat,
curvaceous in every direction.
Your frivolous blueish skirt,
provokes my deepest affection.

Shadowy pearls brighten your neck,
the look in your eyes says ‘please’.
Isn’t this wonderful?‘, you deliberate.
A pick-nick with cotton cheese.

I smile at your leisurely posture.
A female Sheppard at rest.
I’m bothered by so many sheep,
it’s hard to keep anger abreast.

What’s wrong?“, you ask alarmed.
Why are you so full of despair?

[I-000.6] James Madison - Father of the Constitution

The timeless Wisdom of James Madison, Foremost Architect of the American Constitution and the United States Most Precious Bill of Rights:

“In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.”

What a perversion of the normal order of things! … to make power the primary and central object of the social system, and Liberty but its satellite.”

We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”

The people shall not be deprived or abridged of their right to speak, or to publish their sentiments; and the freedom of the press, as one of the great bulwarks of liberty, shall be inviolable.”

The people are the only legitimate fountain of power, and it is from them that the constitutional charter, under which the several branches of government hold their power, is derived.”

I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”

Temporary deviations from fundamental principles are always more or less dangerous. When the first pretext fails, those who become interested in prolonging the evil will rarely be at a loss for other pretexts.

No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

I go on the principle that public debt is a public curse.”

Armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.”

Each generation should be made to bear the burden of its own wars, instead of carrying them on, at the expense of other generations.”

The people shall not be restrained from peacefully assembling and consulting for their common good, nor from applying to the legislature by petitions, or remonstrances for redress of their grievances.”

Nothing could be more irrational than to give the people power, and to withhold from them information without which power is abused.”

In civilized communities, property as well as personal rights is an essential object of the laws, which encourage industry by securing the enjoyment of its fruits; that industry from which property results, and that enjoyment which consists not merely in its immediate use, but in its posthumous destination to objects of choice, and of kindred affection. In a just and free government, therefore, the rights both of property and of persons ought to be effectually guarded.
