just a few things that wus' running through my heeed

Preservation of the self
to jump ship
and join the self
preservation society

resist creeping humility
the others
the 7 billion or so
others here on planet earth

kill or be killed
no its program or be
programmed and so 
both and more 

all for your genes the pool
they happen to come from
did you ask to be born
to the genetic and class
you ended up in?

the elite and the high brow
looking down from top dog spot
moral superiority to go with
privilage and invisible righteousness

those who are stupid 
and damn sure
stupid and certain
those know-it-all

do not forget that each and
every human being thinks and
feels and desires and loves
not just your family and friends

and here comes everybody
the hyperdiversity and
multiplatform entities
take your fucking racist elite
and rot on your island

selfish and centralized
authoritarian and 
ruthless and gangster
yes we need a serial killer in

no room for suspended judgement
or philosophy
no time for humanitas and
for the long poem 
give me tweets and slogans
vote forget trust confuse

and those with wish to keep it
all to themselves by hook and
by crook and by fucking the
working class in the ass
over and over again 

sometimes i wonder about 
when the revolution comes
if i will be there in the thick of it
or watching from a safe distance?
when the other 7 billion wake up
and take agency of their collective

and i hear you thinking
who am i to say? 
good point and first thought
i am fly agaric 23
ready and willing 
finger on the trigger 
Im gonna' pull it

What TORY poet?

Well what political poet
where who step up friend
where you at?
any political Pratt
show yourself to me
come now step fourth
times up

calling all Tory poets
calling all high brow bards 
where are you at
where is your army and ammunition?

200'000 working class poets
got my back writing write now
with deeper feelings than you have
more truth and beauty in one breath
than three decades of your filthy lies
against humanity against god

you have no pantheon of gods
nor bards
your literary lineage reads like
a similar stunted list as your royal

hey Tory boy and Tory girl too
you have no poets and no men
at your side just an army of
spin doctors who
spin and doctor
and money men
and spies that are world beaters
at lies

and the hard bards cry
and wail at the fire storm
the waste lands and fracking plans
offshore banking tax haven scandel
ideological austerity and a war
on the poor and vulnerable
like Goebbles and Himmler
got back in the driving seat

only a superficial Tory beauty
like plastic flowers and fake trees
chemicals steel and plastic all
mushed together with human flesh
the Tory ball of shit
rolling down every street in Britain
industry and capital all stolen
or borrowed with previously stolen
or borrowed credit

what fucking TORY arts?
what music and painting from the upper class
twats? who WHO WHOOOOO?
drunk on the Hollywood goop
the vacuous and empty pop culture
spawned by the likes of Simon Cowell
this reflect proper TORY talent
and a culture of conceit

'we are the self preservation
we are the self preservation
we are the.....

no matter your own opinion
or side of the argument
try oh please do
try again to retain a critical

criticise your darlings
pull your own playhouse down
stay relative
and keep it real

have a sense of duty 
patriotism if you like
in constructive criticism
and critical thinking
upon ALL matters 

critical thinking and regular
what if? sessions
deconstruct synthesize and
reconstruct catepillar
butterfly style

You are wrong
I am wrong and they are 
all of these wrongs do not make
a right
embrace the ambiguity of things
the immeasurable nature of

strive for pluralistic and open
open mind open data sets open
access to information
law based
medical based and 
corporate tax avoidence based

dig deep for humility folks
yes you few reading this
those who already have a feel for it
a sense of the others and perhaps even
the ancestors

the bigger picture 
the magical view if ypu will
the human universe and the shared
experience of the other
playful and sympathetic
listening and understanding

just say no to political 
representative democracy
and failed bloody corpse
wringling on the battle field
all limbs removed together with
the vital organs

the collective will of the people
around planet earth 
remains strong and steady
on the trajectory toward equality 
and better distribution of the wealth
the resources and the infinite 
benefits shared freely by this
beautiful planets natural 

a giving planet
a naturally healing planet and
naturall healing nervous 
body brain system
self regenerative
in body and in earth
the magic of the recycling process
before time
and bangs
the return and condensation
the poem and the life

Oh England
please find your way now
out from the insular close minded route
marked out by the leaders leading
followers to a life of mental torture
how...HOW could i ever have voted for them?

like in Nazi Germany 1939
an entire nation hoodwinked by a strong
leader and a militant insular plot to
take over the world by brute force
just like the British empire
and the Hang dynasty
and Geroge H. W Bush
and Tony Blair
unfair tactics
below the belt blows

Derek's acknowledgments: 
Waywords and Meansigns would not be possible without the support of many people. Like the Joycean maxim says: Here Comes Everybody. Thanks to the fwread listserv, especially Peter Quadrino, Peter Chrisp, Roman Tsivkin, as well as Adam Harvey and Mariana Lanari; your collective knowledge of Joyce is astounding. Marie Broadway, Jake Tozer, Sam Nordli, and Emma Pampanin co-hosted the Finnegans Wake parties that inspired this project. Zach Leavitt and Chelsea Westra co-hosted the parties of the future. Elaine Thomas, Dylan Muhlberg, the Amherst Irish Association, Jacqui Wise, Krzysztof Bartnicki, Mike Moran, Mike Medeiros, Jason Gross, Rebecca Hanssens-Reed, Billy Mills, and the James Joyce Gazette played pivotal roles spreading the word about this project, through press coverage and otherwise. Thanks to Mackenzie Libbey, and Michael Robbins, for their support throughout. Thanks to L. Brown Kennedy and Annie G. Rogers for first introducing me to Joyce. Special thanks to Mark Traynor and the James Joyce Centre in Dublin, and to Robert Berry. 

Infinite thanks to the project contributors, and all who channel the spirit of James Joyce.
