  • ''"The problem with working, I mean not self-employed, is that you have to get up and routinely do something that you do not want to do, plus you get talked down to, ordered around by twats, you know you are better than. In reality, you are no better than a slave, no better than a hamster running on a wheel. You could say the hamster likes to run on the wheel, the hamster runs on the wheel by choice. But do not forget, the hamster is always in a cage, and will never be anything else, but a hamster running on a wheel inside a cage, unless it escapes the cage."''

Best Poem of Robert A Black

The 15th Floor

The bell of the rubbish truck
Is out there
Somewhere
I like to shut
Myself in
Up here
'I'm on top of the world! '
I say
When I am drunk
Vertigo
On the balcony
In the daytime
Curtains closed
At night
If I give it enough
Time
Something
Must happen
In here
Something
Is better
Than
Nothing

Read the full of The 15th Floor

Dirty Paris

Too much dog shit
On the pavement
No one seems to care
The Metro smells like a urinal
Disease carrying mosquitoes
On the trains in November
Homeless guys litter the streets
Criminals roam and rape
Keep your metal shutters down
