Now deep inside my wooden clock
There is a tick but not a tock
Although into the room it chimes
It only tells me half the time
this morning's mood, having just caught the news headlines, is pleased
whether or not i should be pleased is a matter for another discussion but .....
i don't know how well travelled globally the 2012 news was about daniel pelka, a 4 year old polish kid living in england who was killed by his own mother and stepfather, having been subjected to horrific acts, including prolonged starvation, beating, salt poisoning, water torture, and being left in a locked room for 2 days to die on his own
the headlines this morning are that his mother has been reportedly found dead in the british prison in which she was an inmate - no details about how she died have been released - it may have been suicide as an act of contrition, it may have been natural causes, it may have been something else entirely (the ambiguously politic version )
i'm never usually an advocate of retaliatory violence or vigilantism, yet i would sum up my thoughts on these events by paraphrasing jack nicholson from the 1989 batman movie: "you are a vicious bastard ..... i'm glad you're dead"
