Jesus,where’re your nails?

I’m getting a gold medal for my Mail
My inbox emptied yet itr neve whines
I’ve squared the circle,I don’t need no nail

The Met have found me, fined me,what,no bail?
I’ve never known a Pritti dame so kind
I’m getting a rude letter in my Mail

Human rights are blown out by March gales
Home Secretary,are you going blind ?
I’ve squared the circle,Jesus,where’re your nails?

Leave off murdering women and young girls
Don’t handcuff the survivors,pay their fines
I’m getting bloody metal in my Mail

Our arteries are squeezing,hearts will fail
For the hell, O writer, leave us signs
The circle’s square, I’m hanging by a nail

Well, what do you think of Britain in decline
The police resent ,mad Governments tell lies
I’m getting silver pieces in my Mail
Who’s crucified our God with varnished nails?

Fear abstractions

Use no superfluous word, no adjective, which does not reveal something. Don’t use such an expression as ‘dim land of peace.’ It dulls the image. It mixes an abstraction with the concrete. It comes from the writer’s not realising that the natural object is always the adequate symbol. Go in fear of abstractions. — Ezra Pou

Is writing therapetic or beneficial to the writer or the readers?

The spirits of our hearts are tamed,

By rhythms of pen,of brush,of mind.

In the above extract from my last post I seem to be saying that it is the rhythms of what we write
which in art would be patterns or shapes ,it is these rhythms which tame the spirits of our hearts which may be troubling us.It is not merely writing down how we feel or describing a situation, maybe grief, maybe anger, or any emotion ,it is the work we do to edit or shape what we are trying to convey into a form which will both express
and communicate to others what we are experiencing,
It is like a sculptor making the stone into a shape
which satisfied the creative urge and invites our attention
If there is no feeling in the creation it will not have any value,but the feeling alone is not enough.
It’s the editing,shaping and so on which seems to satisfy our mind and heart.That is my view today
