Artist's Description

Am I being totally paranoid? Are my drugs starting to kick in, or are they not working?
Have I had too much to drink… Or, maybe, not enough?
Maybe I am going insane… but in who’s eyes? Isolation is said to provoke insanity.
Extreme sensory deprivation is also said to bring insanity to the forefront.
Maybe my paranoid sycophantic insanity brings about these ramblings.
Am I the only one to see that within all levels of leadership,
the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing?
Why is mankind so fixated with the concept of working full-time in main-stream jobs?
Is it a case of “Go Gently into that Good Night”?
I say “NO”. I will fight tooth and nail, right to the bitter end.
Normality will never exist within our multi-cultural society.
We have gangs of different ethnic or religious beliefs
Roaming the streets with machete’s and guns, looking for unprovoked fights.
Maybe someone looked at another person the wrong way…
It seems that any slight, imagined or real, is met with extreme violence.
All men may be created equal, but not when viewed in the eyes of man.
The “Mr. Mums”, the shift workers, the sole-parents…
Are these not worthy occupations to fit into the laws, mores and expectations of our society?
The unemployed, the pensioners, those with a mental illness…
Are they to be cast out from our ranks: deemed unworthy of participation?
Participation in the human race… Participation in life itself…
Shall we bundle them upon the broken-down, leaky Ship Of Fools
and let them set sail from our shores, never to be heard from again?
Much as this may seem like a good idea for (racial) cleansing of the people,
Who will sit in judgement of those in the right and those in the wrong?
Who will sentence these poor, wondering, unexpectant, misaligned fools to a watery grave?

I only hope it does not turn out to be a pompous, pretentious, petty prick of a self-serving politician.
