Ode to Hypocrisy


I stood there and gasped
Thinking
I know
That what I hear
See and feel
Is anything but factual
Words targeted solely
at pleasing me
for peace sake

I stared at the mirror

And heard the clatter and wind
The chiming of church bells
And the howling swears
of idle street hawkers
selling veggies and kitchen ware
with their pseudo- lucky charms
And blessed virgins adorning their vans...


But I see no man around
No woman...

I say

I am alone

All is good

All is fine

And the smoky sky
And putrefying air
Is fine
As long as we both
Say so

All is fine.

Brewery owners, politicians and most of the women themselves have condemned the legislation as absurd, claiming the "tan ban", as it has been nicknamed, will destroy a centuries-old tradition.

Under the EU's Optical Radiation Directive, employers of staff who work outdoors, including those in Bavaria's beer gardens, must ensure they cover up against the risk of sunburn.
Bavarian bar keepers have been told that the dirndl, generally rather revealing, will have to be replaced as it offers no protection against what the directive calls "natural sources of radia…

Malta Fuel mix-up leaves Abramovich with £1m holiday disaster

By Charlotte Edwardes and Karl Schembri in Malta(Filed: 07/08/2005)

Anyone who has put petrol in a diesel engine will appreciate the mistake. But Roman Abramovich, the owner of Chelsea Football Club, may not be so understanding.

He was said this weekend to have been "disappointed" to learn that his £72 million yacht, Pelorus, had been filled with the "wrong type of fuel" while docked in Malta.
A single tank of fuel for the 377ft craft costs £120,000. The cost of removing the fuel - a lengthy process, which includes cleaning the engine - is considerably more. Yachting insiders last night put a figure of "at least £1 million, potentially as much as £7 million" on the repair costs.
Simon Borg Cordona, Mr Abramovich's Maltese agent, described the incident as "a disaster". He said: "The engineers discovered that the fuel that had been used was 'incompatible'. I cannot confirm what happened exactly, we still don't know. Definitely Mr …
