Read It! Don’t let it come to pass!

Humanity reduced to a bottom line.


Trapped. In a world where everything is measured and control pervades every area of life, four people begin to break down. Instead, they break through the walls of deceit and propaganda and into a world of revolution.

Each, in their way, vow to overthrow the established order. They embark on a journey against the forces arraigned against them, forces of state and self-doubt.

Ultimately their paths converge on a dangerous road and the discovery of an ancient secret.

One one level this is a story about how different people react the ever growing and relentless pressure of everyday oppression. It explores their journeys as they are broken and rebuilt and investigates their modes and motivations for rebelling.

At another level it is a critique on the darker side of capitalism and free markets and how that has driven us further and further away from the evolutionary advantage that gave us supremacy in the first place. It questions whether the human race has doomed itself or whether we still have the capacity to wrench ourselves from the track we have so tightly committed our society upon.

Little Corner

By Scott Bailey © 2015

 

A little corner

A little corner

That is my world

Shrunk in space

My only place

A desk, a keyboard,

a screen

 

A little corner

Of a room

A little corner

of time

Stolen time

from life’s demands

Time to dream

 

The keys on the keyboard

are keys

Out of this corner

this cage

Into a wider

free form world

and free dreams

 

Through the portal

of my mind

The little corner

has no end

It opens up

and expands

forever without end

On the Edge

On The Edge

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Stand tall on the board
A breeze teases the skin; dive
Slapped by water cold

Iris

By Scott Bailey

 

The dark wide iris
Sparkling bright now, mists over
As it watches time
