Tides of the Dollar Moon (A Poem)










Tides of the Dollar Moon

 A planet to its Star must look
The planet no less needs its moon.
As the Sun is the store of energy, New.
The moon drives and regulates currents,
of the tides , time and the nature of things.
That Golden Orb gives all
That silvery Moon regulates all
Both work together even as the other
Seemingly sleeps and yet currents
of the tides, Time and the nature of things pass.
On the nature of Man made things
On a standard of gold which
Jennings would not be crucified upon ,
That cross Of Gold-alone hard food of Midas.
No tides to complement the Orb
For Silver was its currency,
the Silvery moon to that crosses Golden Sun
which means of exchange fed the common man
The Silver Moon drives and regulates
Currencies of the tides, Time and the nature of things.
Time passed and Man forsakes the Golden Orb
and its silvery moon. No credit he gave
to drivers of Tides, Time and the nature of things
Fiat of imperial rule enforces debts,
new tides in political Economy.
FIAT dictates the new tides of Commerce.
Ephors of debt above and astride the law.
No silvery moon complementary to the Golden Orb.
There are no tides by means of which the common man
may be fed. Hard food of Midas alone- Starvation.
King Kanute Like those ephors
wave bidding the advancing tide backwards
Still they advance tides in a tsunami of debt
Tides of a Dollar moon by fiat
Hegemonic Tides of the Dollar Moon.

Diogenes is one of my Favourite Philosophers he had a talent for situation Comedy. A plucked chicken becomes Platos Man, Stand a little out of my Sun he told Alexander the great, Various other infamous antics which are widely available to read on the web.
Diogenes Lived in a Barrel in the town of Sinop now in Modern day turkey. I have invented a freind of the famous Cynic PhilosoTees, A toga seller with a stall next to his freinds barrel. Various plain truths I imagine printed onto those Togas to inform the good citizens of Sinop how to live a virtuos life.Every new empire needs a Big Lie, a Foundation Myth and this will be the Foundation myth of the PhilosoTees™ T-Shirt Empire. Themes of dreams perhaps?

´´PhilosoTees; is a tee shirt brand reproducing popular quotes and memes coined by the imaginary philosopher Philosotees; and printed On Togas sold from his stall next to His friend  Diogeneses Barrel, Both were noted Cynics.  A perfect gift for the philosopher who wants nothing.

Enter Teemills a design fulfilment order service where anyone can upload designs and market them with out holding any stock. The Green Party I discovered use the same service for their Web shop and I have used a similar service way back when for my ReverbNation Channel, they changed their Merch system though and my store sadly disappeared into the ether, Was it ever real at all?

I had come up with a few slogans and fun ideas for T Shirts for David Malones Leadership candidacy for the Green Party of England and Wales. I looked for a service similar to the old Reverbnation Merch shop and happily found TeeMills did exactly what I was looking for. Sustainable energy,Organic Cotton, ethical sources they ticked all the boxes. As I wanted to do some Green Party related stuff I was very pleased to discover that they had chosen Tee Mills too for their own Web Shop. If it´s good enough for the Green Party it’s good enough for me I reasoned.

I suspect I will have a lot of fun just thinking of new Memes and adding fun Cod Philosophy Quotes. So from the not so serious to the serious and the Interesting.

Already the design ethos has evolved and the possibilities are emergent and wonderful. Feel free to tweet , browse and make sugegestions . As the platform evolves so will the product for now I am in a period of Hiatus and its holding up my Islamic Philosophy series going on sale, but production continiues rest assured.
