The Party Party Party

Lets Party Party Party Vote 1 Thundercloud for President of the Party Party Party

Corruption is the norm, big business stirring shit

Clive Palmer and Scott Morrison all play their part in it.

Corruption was the norm and the people had a reason

To overthrow the government, they were accused of treason

Propaganda was the news, Fox was telling lies

News Paper Corporation, Fake News in disguise

Propaganda was the news, Censorship was rife

Free speech was suppressed, people feared for their life

Politicians taking bribes, democracy sold free

Represent elite but not you or me

Politicians taking bribes, disguised as a donation

The people had no say, the oligarchic nation

Big business in control, none of them paying tax

But so many homeless people, have fallen through the cracks

Big business in control, screwing over you

Puppet politicians, we all know it’s true

The The People had enough and they all got together

So the Party Party Party was born and we partied on forever

Banished the Oligarchs and the people had a party

The bestest ever Party, The Party Party Party

The Party Party Party is here to save the day

Join the Party Party Party and have a happy day

The Party Party Party wants everyone to thrive

To dance and sing, play music instead of just survive

The Party Party Party will make a three day week

So everyone is happy and working at their peak

Then we will make sure that all people get a raise

To have extra money for partying on the extra weekend days

End all prohibition and get rid of unjust laws

Dismantle the armed forces and end all the wars

End ownership of land and rent free where you live

Everyone will have a home, another thing we’ll give

Everyone a job to repair the damaged land

The Party Party Party has a plan that’s grand

Vo te the The Party Party Party is here to save the day

Join the Party Party Party and have a happy day

The Party Party Party wants everyone to thrive

To dance and sing, play music instead of just survive

If you’re sick of dinosaurs this is what I say

Vote the Party Party Party and the dinosaurs fade away

We’ll open up the borders so you’re free to move about

Tax the Corporations and chuck income tax out

Give everyone a pay rise and more than a basic wage

Make all education free and lower the retirement age

Give everybody annual leave of at least six weeks

For resting and recovery, bush walks and swims in creeks

The Party Party Party we have an awesome plan

Come join the Party Party Party, happiness for all our plan

The Party Party Party is here to save the world

For peace and joy and freedom of every boy and girl

The Party Party Party when we win we’ll have a dance

With lights, music and good food, you can wear your Party Pants

So that you can party, do you want to know what else

The Party Party Party will give Universal Free Health

Care for every man and woman, every boy and girl

Join the Party Party Party we are here to save the world

With our loving and our caring, our joy and bliss compassion

Let’s make a better world as happiness  is our passion

We are the Party Party Party and we have disco lights

Vote the Party Party Party you’ll love our Party Nights

WITH The Party Party Party your mind will be set free

And the Party Party Party will legalise LSD

Our policy is simple to nurture and do no harm

To love and care for all the Earth, to End All Wars, Disarm

And then we all can Party On in Peace and all will thrive

When the Party Party Party wins will be a great day to be alive

So come and join the  Party you can have a Party too

The Party Party Party for the people and the planet too

Because we know you’re tired of the left and right inaction

We’ll uniify the Earth and every single faction

With the Party Party Party you will party day and night

To celebrate the end of wars and all humans unite

To live in peace and harmony let’s make the change this year

Let’s make compassion the norm and eliminate all fear

So come on everybody act now with your heart

Join the Party Party Party and let the Party start.

Lets Party

The Tawny Frogmouth on Prohibition

The following poetry was written by James Arthur Warren AKA Thundercloud in memory of Daniel Walmsley, victim of prohibition. Early one morning, the day before the Nimbin Mardi Grass cannabiss law reform protestival  I walked outside in the dark as the first light was coming. I heard the tawny frogmouth and listened. Then I went inside and wrote down what came to mind. This happened two more times and now I present the words of the wise owl to you.

There is an indigenous belief that tawny frogmouths are messengers of the dead. This spirit bird crowed three times, before the roosters and the kookaburra early in the morning. When the cock crows three times the truth is told.

The Tawny Frogmouth On Prohibition

The tawny frogmouth came to me very late last nighttawny_frogmouth_james_arthur_warren
It was very early morning and it spoke very quiet
“I’ve something important to say and this is my position
Humans will not be free until you END PROHIBITION

I’m a tawny frogmouth owl and I see your frustration
With the punitive justice drug war of incarceration
77,000 non criminal users each year locked and jailed
And crime rates have risen the drug war has failed

80 percent of the injustice system is wasted each year
Locking up people for flowers you people are queer
It is obvious to all that prohibition has failed
When you can harm minimise and empty half the jails

Make access safe and clean drugs a right
Save billions of taxpayers dollars overnight
The police could focus on violent crime
Harm minimisation means there’s less people dying

Harm minimisation means that you support the abusers
Educate and rehabilitate the hard drug abusers
Less Overdoses and violent crime gangs will fade away
Grow herbs freely at home, juice cannabis each day

It is obvious to us that you must End Prohibition
Call all politicians today is your mission
And explain all the benefits of ending the war
On drugs, children, the sick, elderly and poor

Write emails, make videos, protest and shout
End prohibition, let the prisoners out
Time to end prohibition and the drug war
On the socially vulnerable, sick, black and poor

It makes me so mad I’m usually so quiet
Said the tawny frogmouth, I want to sleep now it’s light

The Tawny Frogmouth part 2

The tawny frogmouth came to me early in the morning
As the clouds turned red, as the sun was dawning
The wise old owl hooted and the words he spoke were true
“I’m a tawny frogmouth owl, this is what you need to do”

“Write down what I tell you, what I have to say,
It’s time you humans ended all drug prohibition today
Us tawny frogmouth owls are spirits of the dead
Who died from overdoses and systemic violence” he said

“I know you find it weird and difficult to believe
But tawny frogmouth owls are loved ones that you grieve”
“That is why I’m here with my message for you
Ending Prohibition will save loved ones lives it’s true

I’m a tawny frogmouth owl and I really give a hoot
Prohibition harms but harm minimization is beaut”
I stood there quietly listening to what the wise owl said
“End all prohibition and harm minimization instead

When you end all prohibition everything will be alright
Maybe then” the tawny frogmouth said, “I’ll get some sleep at night”
A kookaburra came in the light of early morning
“Listen to the tawny frogmouth, listen to his warning”

“To end all prohibition and empty half the jails
Change your outdated laws because prohibition has failed”
The kookaburra flew off laughing “Prohibition is a failure”
End all prohibition, hurry up Australia”

The Tawny Frogmouth part 3

The tawny frogmouth owl came to me again
Said, “I’ve got a very important message for you my friend
I’ve come to visit you early in the morning
Because you are the one who will sound my warning

We wise owls think you humans are very strange
You seem so conservative and reluctant to embrace change
Your outdated laws are causing much frustration
Time to End Prohibition and change this situation

It isn’t rocket science in fact is plain to see
That your prohibition laws take people’s rights to be
Healthy, free and happy and lock them in a prison
Jails full of poor and black, incarceration rates have risen

Mummy went to jail, Nana went there too
All because of the herbal cannabis they grew
Prohibition is an attack on human rights
It is such an injustice, I have trouble sleeping at night

Humans do you get it? I do I’m an owl
Adopt harm minimization and end prohibition now
Prohibition is social manipulation, slavery in disguise
Prohibition causes violent crime to rise

When prohibition exists people live in fear
Of truth and being caught, imprisoned for a year
Please call your politicians the tawny frogmouth said
When you harm minimise, I can go to bed

Please reconsider your perspective on prohibition of drugs
Free the plants and herbs and undercut the thugs
When you end prohibition there will be a reduction in crime
With harm minimization, there will be less parents crying

When you end prohibition billions of dollars will be saved
Less cops, prisons, lawyers, deaths, more health and happiness every day
I have nearly finished, I’ll try to have a sleep
But I find it very difficult because I often weep

For the victims of the drug war, those overdosed and dead
Brothers, sisters, children’s deaths preventable he said
I’m a tawny frogmouth owl and there is something you must do
Harm minimise, end prohibition now what I’m saying is true

Everyone can see prohibition is a failure
End prohibition now change is good Australia
There is one more thing, you cannot waste your vote
Put a 1 next to the HEMP PARTY in the Senate when you vote.”

A New World Order

Good bye ScoMo, Trump, Macron, Elizabeth, Netanyahu and the Pope elect.
This year will be the fall of you, my prediction is correct.
We the people call you out and demand that you step down
Your ponzi thieving system is going to be torn down.

An Illuminati puppet with an invisible hand up bum,
A troll to scare the people but only fooling some,
Prime Minister or President or Premier of the land
Re presenting oligarchic interests your deception is not so grand

We the people call you out, you’re Empires all will fall
For your fear wars don’t cut it so we’ll tear down your Southern Wall
Racist figures sit in Towers, Emperors without clothes
Psychopathic sociopaths everybody knows

The truth is that you are human and no different to us all
Not God’s elect, Not Elite nor Illuminated at all
Your hoarding and your greed is an obsessive schism
Turn upside down your pyramid scheme, anarcho-syndaclism.

Redistribute all the wealth of banks and corporations
Share the common lands, no land ownership in Nations.
Guarantee that everyone has a home and healthy food
Free energy for all and health care that is good.

But you corporate office puppets you’d better listen here
Corrupt political leaders , this will be your last year.
Your representative democracies aren’t re presenting me
Destroy the system and create Direct Social Democracy

Henny Penny

Lessons from Henny Penny

You get out what you put in.

I remember as a young man hearing the story of Henny Penny who planted wheat to grow seeds to make bread for her family. Every time she wanted help the other animals were too busy to help. However, when the bread had been baked all the animals wanted to have some but Henny Penny didn’t give them any bread because they hadn’t helped.

I wrote this poem to expand on the lessons of Henny Penny.

Henny Penny

Henny Penny planted seeds but no one would assist

They said it is a good idea so Henny did persist

The seeds they grew to wheat and trees, rye and barley too.

Henny Penny planted these and ate the berries blue

The others smelled the cooking bread and gathered round in lust

Give us some you selfish hen the farmer gives us dust

I only have enough to feed the ones that I can trust

I made enough for all that helped to harvest sow and crush

You saw me plant and carry water, working in the hot

You could have helped, we would have enough for all but now we’ve not

Myself I need the energy to plant a row of seeds

Here have some crumbs. It’s all you get. What lazy people need.

Henny built a humble home for all her family

Her door was always open to visitors for feeds

The selfish ones watched from afar with envy lust and pride

Coveting the simple things like Henny’s hot fruit pies

Henny would be nice to you when you’re not a selfish jerk

Hot fruit pies and fresh baked bread for those that do the work

A rattle snake came along and offered her some money

She laughed said to go away. I can’t eat that it’s funny

You want a piece of glory of God’s delicious bread

Now you offer gold and coins when I wanted help instead

You can use the money to buy some new fruit trees

Or you could help and climb that one and pick the seeds for free

The Earth provides us everything in abundance and in joy

The fruits of all my labour are for my children to enjoy

You can get this poem and more like it from my book “Love in Nimbin” Book 1 of Love and Lust in Nimbin available by at fantAsian Eatery, Nimbin or by mail order for $19.95 AUD plus postage. You can place an order by emailing Thundercloud at 1english1@gmail.com

What is the value of a tree

 

Forests make me happy and I was lucky to play in the forest as a young child and as a man. I heard a rumour about two disappearing words. “Acorn and forest”

As a young boy of 7 playing marbles under an oak tree, I found a heart  shaped acorn. I pushed that acorn into the ground. An oak tree grew. In 1984 at 14 on tree day I was given an African Tulip Tree which I planted.

Working in the forest the day before my birthday in ”99 lightning struck thanks to my son Clay. I went to help my dad Doug build a forestry nursery. I stood there day after day putting tiny eucalyptus and rainforest seeds in pots by hand. My family grew a million trees and now there are more forests.

We need forests because they are for resting under and sitting under playing marbles. We need acorns to grow forests. Plant the seed and grow a tree. Plant a million seeds and grow a forest of abundance.

I am a supplanter. supplanting ideas these days I plant heart shaped seeds of love and growing forests of compassion. The following poem was inspired by an article I read that said the value of a tree is $193,000. I believe it is much more infinite and subjective. Others agree to disagree

https://www.therecord.com/news-story/6702767-what-is-the-value-of-a-tree-/

http://www.earthsharing.org.au/2006/09/how-do-you-value-a-tree/

https://www.uow.edu.au/~sharonb/STS300/valuing/price/pricingarticles.html

The following poem comes from book one of my 2017 two book poetry anthology Love in #Nimbin, Book 1 of Love and Lust in Nimbin, by Thundercloud Repairian AKA James Arthur Warren.

What is the value of a tree?

One hundred and ninety three thousand dollars can’t you see?

Plant one seed and help it grow

A million seeds, green forests grow

I planted one, I planted four

A million seeds outside my door

A forest grew from the seeds I threw

Onto the  blue house floor

The forest is a special place with fruit for you and me

Let’s eat the fruit together and then we’ll plant the seeds

What value is a teacher from all the seeds he threw

Onto the dirt of the blue house floor that grew and grew and grew

Each of us are seeds and supplanters too

Let’s plant seeds together to keep the blue house blue.

Self Development 101

To develop the self it is essential to quieten and take control of the mind. This requires discipline and practice such as meditation and acceptance through gratitude. Self development also requires a goal and plan to achieve the goal. However, self development also requires a purpose, a desire and lust for a better life.

Life for me is about creation, to live, love, and make a difference in the world. I have hopes dreams and aspirations for a better world. I only have one real mission nurturance of life. With this in mind, I live with universal acceptance through gratitude for the all and observe the Source in all living things.
I want to be healthy, happy and love.
This is true abundance and manifests in the ability to love thy self and the world around us.
By the creation of your own heaven on Earth you transcend the bounds and chains of programming and belief systems.
You belief is how you “be-in-life”
Your words are your beliefs so if you say bad words then you make a “bad-life” purely by your spoken words.
You can change that by be-loving.
This part of the word “lief” means in German , “love” so the word belief means be-love.
If you be mean, be hateful, be angry, be scared that is your attachment to that way of seeing the world.. You are in love with being a victim, being shameful, holding guilt, drama, being proud, being judgemental. You don’t have to be-that, you can be-hopeful, be-kind, be-accepting, be-love, Be grateful, be nurturing, believe in love.
You can be anything you want to be if you do it.

I like to begin each day with the practice of gratitude and today when I awoke and meditated, the following poem came out.

I’ve hopes, plans, goals and dreams
So many wonderful things ahead it seems
Loving joyful aspirations
To be healthy fit is my inspiration
I used to drink and smoke my life away
But I quit so I’d be healthy today
Was fat and sick no plans in life
Then got single and quit my wife
To write and draw is in my plan
To be strong and a fit healthy man
Be the best version of me
An example for my sons to see
Live in the now and not the past
Holding on just makes pain last
Have no fear if you talk kind
Walk tall but humble grow your mind
Live well live long and life enjoy
Play, create, have fun like a little boy

Because I don’t want to be a lonely bitter sick old man.

It also helps to use your calendar and a to do list but that’s another whole article.
