You have to ask – is there any hope?
I just appeared on the bridge at midnight – wait wait wait, there’s a verse there
twas on the bridge at midnight
His leg was all a quiver
he gave a cough, his leg fell off
and floated down the river
Anyway – I was on the bridge at midnight just letting the navigators know I was around when we got talking about stuff. The two watchkeepers are of a younger generation than me you see. We got chatting. Now young Rosie, a youthful and energetic 18 year old from Australia seemed to think her generation were all ´fucked up´and of little hope. We talked more about the politics of the current world, North Korea, Marine Le Pen, China and of course America (fuck yeah). I also expressed my admiration for a fella over in the states called Elon Musk, and that I hoped he would be our salvation an unlikely hero, not like John Connor!
Rosie immediately asked if Elon Musk was on YouTube as she didn´t know who he was. Equally as quickly, she realised the irony of her two last statements and we chuckled about it. Maybe there is hope yet?
I think there is – the other day, Rosie tipped me off about the young Aussie lass below – I was stunned !
Talent – she has it, considerably more than my verse writing skills for sure.
So right now, about 5 hours out of Singapore which will most likely be my new home until late June. I am a little excited I must admit. More on that soon.
I am also more than a little excited about my new squeeze.
