Rosa Luxemburg

Red Rosa now has vanished too...
She told the poor what life is about
And so the rich have rubbed her out
May she rest in peace

[Bertolt Brecht / Kurt Weill]

Hen lays egg

Turns out this piece of jive is available at the ICA bookshop. Who knew? Not me... but I feel sort of temporarily complete somehow.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

Lenin was the first of the gang
With a gun in his hand
He was the first to do time
The first of the gang to die
Oh my

Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin

Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to Joseph Stalin

Harry Potters

Today is World Book Day or something and Harry Potter got up around 6am and baked herself a croissant on top of the radiator just like they do in a proper boulangerie. Then she set about making improvements on the cloak that she had spent a couple of hours on with mummy last night but after a while it got completely ruined so she started on a new one instead which didn't work out but daddy finished making another one at around three minutes past nine and mummy added a scar with her eyeliner (Miss Gemma had already made the glasses and Harry herself had made the tie, the wand and the Gryffindor badge yesterday) so everything was okay in the end and nobody was late for school and so that was a relief to say the least.
