Erroneous Eid Mubarak to you

The appeal for unity around a crap Eid decision,
Is a secular depoliticisation and capitulation.
To petro death capital and the conservative institutional desire loop,
To replicate all carry through errors to ...Jahannam?

No Saudi based authority ordered you to jump upon their Eid bed with the cultural dexterity of a trampolining janissary in full armour, and ravage your country.

You beloved zombie muppets.

Tasbih Assemble

There is no Instagram feed
Worthy of worship, sharing or liking
But Allah.
And
Facebook
is
not His
messenger.

We are woven together,
In ways that continue to transpire

Through cyclones and earthquakes of time
Laser beads of prayer,
A golden necklace around the world
Ziyarat untill Qiyamat.
A womb with a view.

Oh you in unmarked graves,
despairing feudal, national, capitalist slaves,
May He fortify and inspire you
To upend the situation that mires you.

And you, walnut whip in your hand,
Making things worse,
Are a boil on the bum on a missionary.
In the passport queue for Neoliberalistan.

[New word] Brexilience

Probably useful to be thinking in terms of the household or company scale, impacts and options of forthcoming change.

Let them lose their shit, just make preparations, it will be white supremacy shaytanic capitalism of a slightly different configuration, as usual anyway

[New Word] Nirmulosterone

Did you have fun rigging your latest election tasmaha? Fancy an(other) ultranationalist high? Why not chase the green serpent with a vial of Nirmulosterone.

Destroys political pasts, presents and futures.

Bangladesh and the 96% Result

If an illegal government holds another rigged election to rechristen itself, does it cancel the previous rigged election out or does it just mean that the thugs and opportunists are going to leave more of us in shallow graves, destitution and traffic jams?

Three overempowered Bangladeshi females posed for the press flashing V signs and looking terribly pleased with themselves. A fourth was missing because she was too busy breastfeeding in the mother of all parliaments.



The history of rigging in Bangladesh is long and illustrious. It's playing fields and training camps are swampy, prone to erosion and 'aid' flood contamination. Civil servants spend their nights stamping vote sheets before the vote. Gundas ( thugs) are expected to put the fear of death and family destruction into their victims.

But 96% of seats takes the patishapta pittha, the coconut water and the jhaal muri.
