I! I! I!... oh no! U! U! U!

Under Windsor Bridge, 1912
by Adolphe Valette

it is kind of funny thinking about it.
and with a sarcastic smile while doing it...

i have thought after watching the news
that it is no different back home.

that when a project,
a plan,
an operation
is successful.
everyone who has anything to do with it
wants to claim the success.

but if it fails,
they have all their fingers ready
to point to one man to blame...

  5. yeah- It's amazing to me how leaders of countries always have a "patsy" set up in case their decision turns out to be a bad one. Good post!

  7. Basking in the limelight always works for me, but doesn't it make more sense to fix or adjust something that isn't working.... rather than blaming someone? I know it always happens though. Love your insightfulness, JJ. Thanks for sharing. =D

    That's human nature at its best. Humankind prompted by feelings of arrogance and wanting to put their hands into things that they thought belong to them. Well thought of Pare!

  17. Gday Jesus, reminds me of the song " the highwayman" .
    "i was a dam builder across the river deep and wide, where water and steel did collide , i was building a dam on the wild colorado, i slipped and fell into the wet concrete below, they buried mein that great tomb that knows no sound, but i am still around...." ,
