Rhyming Polemics

Algorithms:

Algorithms:


I've been reading Yuval Harari's Homo Deus- every line

And it's got me thinking and a fretting about the future of mankind

I've been thinking that maybe we humans have truly passed our prime

And that Artificial intelligence is going to leave us humans far behind.

 

Algorithms clogging up my brain

Algorithms monitoring my pain

Algorithms calculating gain

Algorithms trying to keep me sane.


My computer is a wonder - it is far smarter than you and I

It computes my bio-rhythms at the blinking of an eye

It whips me at the chess board no matter how I try

And it's even taken to predicting the very day I die.

The New Enlightenment

 

We're living through a second brutal dark age

With renewed bigotry, superstition and terror.

And if you thought we're on a preordained, exponential path of progress

Then I suspect you might be making a fundamental error.

 

Since the collapse of the twentieth century experiment in socialism

With equality and global brotherhood as its imagined creed

We have succumbed to the ideology of individualism

Which turns out to be nothing but a fig leaf for corporate greed.

 

The natural dialectic between cooperation and competition

Has been cynically twisted in favour of the latter

Never-ending wars between regions and religions

Divide and rule, while the elites grow grotesquely fatter.

Jeremy Corbyn The Criminal

Blair and Bush led the West to an illegal war against Iraq

And a quarter of a million Iraqis directly perished in the inferno.

Yet Jeremy Corbyn is deemed to be the criminal

And their attacks on him continue, both direct and subliminal.

 

Anglo Saxon banks both sides of the pond recklessly speculated with our money

And tens of millions subsequently lost their homes and livelihoods.

Yet Jeremy Corbyn is deemed to be the criminal

And his policies are declared dangerous and abominable.

Migrants


The distinction between refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants

Is as repulsive as racism itself.

The very essence of humanity is migration

Nobody wants to be left on the shelf.

 

Our descendants all originally migrated from Africa

In search of food and a safer place to live

Those that would make criminals out of migrants

Commit a crime that is impossible to forgive.

Corbynomics: TRWNBT

There's a man going round who'd rather jaw jaw

than carelessly set off a nuclear war war.

But they call him a threat to national security.

 

There's a man who's opposed to austerity

whose alternative shows a great deal of dexterity.

But they say he's a threat to the nation.

 

There's a man who wants QE for the common people

instead of mindlessly pump-priming the capitalist steeple.

But they say he will wreck the economy.
