Symetry of Theft

.
.
Is jealousy of creation a part of  human nature?
Is it innocence to assume that all flowers
Are for the plucking? Is it righteous to
Reach out and take take take take take
Calling the self both messenger and author?
.
Is it human nature to pluck the best?
To hunt through the ordered gardens and the wilderness
Gathering the prettiest and the most significant,
Plucking the flowers from their context
And claiming, “Now this is mine.” ?
.
Why not take all the best that you can perceive?
Why not take what moves your soul? Take take, take take .
Take what brings some comfort.  Take take take take.
Why should the intensity of your wanting
Not be justification for thieving actions?
.
If there is beauty in the wild,
Is that Wildness available for the plucking?
Are there no consequences for your taking taking
Taking taking taking taking taking.
There is always balance in nature.
.
There are always consequences.
The flattery of your wanting is insufficient.
The Universe cares not for flattery.
When beauty flows into your heart,
Does that make you the author or the audience?
.
You vandalizing thieves who have destroyed
With your careless critical trampling;
You flattering greedy plagiarizing soul cannibals;
You deceive only yourself that you are the art,
Yourself the artist and the gardener.
.
You trolling gatherers of art’s life blood,
Think that there is no price to pay. Wrong.
Restitution is always made. Balance is a contract
With the Universe, made before the birth of beauty.
Think on symmetry when you claim what is not yours …
.
Da! Da! Da!
.
.
.
Through all strata of creation balance is maintained.

6. CONVERSATIONS WITH BUMP ONNA LOG

.
.
BEAR: I heard what you said, yesterday, to the group. That story was wrong.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: There you go again, mountains out of mole hills. I wasn’t talking to you anyway. It’s none of your business what I say to MY friends and MY relatives.
.
BEAR: But I was standing in the group.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: You already know what happened, so I was telling them.
.
BEAR: But I know the true story. I know what really happened.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: So why didn’t you tell it?
.
BEAR: The way it really is?
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: It is the way I said. I said it didn’t I? All of those people agree with me. Ask any of them, they will tell you YOU are wrong.
.
BEAR: But they don’t know.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: They know what I told them. That’s good enough. I said it, so it must be that way. You weren’t even a part of the conversation. What do you know?
.
BEAR: I know the truth.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: You must not have heard all that I said. THAT is what the truth is.
.
BEAR: It is possible that I did miss something. What do you think I might have missed? Do you remember what you said?
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: See you admit it!! You weren’t listening. That’s what I mean, you never pay attention to anything I say. I told you to just ask those people I was talking to. They can tell you the right story. What? Do you think I was writing it all down while I was talking? I’m not picky like you. I don’t think too much about unimportant details.
.
BEAR: But you were talking about me, in an untruthful disloyal way.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: That’s what I mean. Good grief! Why is THAT important? It’s just not any use trying to make sense out of what you say. No wonder they agree with me, you just don’t think like a normal person.
.
Pause
.
BEAR: Do you know why all turds are tapered? …. That is so your ass-hole won’t slam shut!! (Claps hands one sharp loud CLAP!! ) That is an important detail for you to think about.
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: Yeah. Yeah. I guess. (Edges of lips twitch. Looks sideways and allows small smirking gloat. Opens refrigerator) This is what I came in for.
.
.
.
.
This is a condensation of several real incidents from several different years and venues and incarnations of BUMP ONNA LOG. The scatological joke, however, I have told aloud. The CLAP does wonders for consciousness … changing … or identifying.

1. Conversations With Bump Onna Log

.
Bear: “I’m sure you didn’t hear me, because of the answer that you gave…”
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: ” You did that on purpose!” frowning pouting face.
.
Bear: “Did what on purpose?”
.
BUMP ONNA LOG: “You asked it that way so I wouldn’t answer right.
I didn’t have no idea that you was goin’ to ask that. If I had known
what you was goin’ to say, I woulda heard it just fine!” Angry
accusing facial expression.
