Barry’s Cheese

Barry walked into the church and straight up to the preacher’s perch.

Barry got down on his knees and prayed to God for some cheese.

Please God please, give me some cheese.

Please God please I’m on my knees.

God sent down his little toe, it said to Barry, “no, no, no”.

You will have no cheese just now if you want cheese, you need a cow.

“Ah,” said Barry, “A cow I need.”, and once again Barry did plead.

“Please God please send me a cow, send it fast, send it right now”.

So God sent down another toe, it said to Barry “Don’t you know?”

“If you feel you need a cow, you need some seed and a plow”.

Barry got back on his knees, looked up at God and started to plead.

“Why do I need seed and plow, when you just said I need a cow”.

God sent down another toe, which said, “This might come as a blow,

but to keep a cow it needs to eat and crops are what brings milk to teat”.

Barry got up off his knees and said to God without a please,

“I want my cheese and I want it now, you know where you can stick that bloody plow.

Why God do you bring me such pain, you know full well there’s been no rain.

We’re in a drought. I’ll reap no crop. You’ve sent no rain, not one stinkin’ drop.”

So God came down with cheese in toe. Scraped it off and said, “LET IT BE SO”.

I’ll give you what you asked precisely, but if had of just asked me nicely.

You might have got your rain as well.

Have your toe cheese, enjoy the smell.

I hope you’ll learn your lesson well”.

Hope

Hope is Good
Truth is Good
Don’t take hope
Don’t fucking lie
Lying is corrupted data
Spreading lies means people are walking around with corrupted data
Truth is not bad
Truth is not ugly
Truth is reality
Learn about people
And you learn about yourself
Learn from people who don’t use truth as a baseline corrupts your mind
Narrative thinkers build on what they believe
Narrative thinkers don’t let in ideas that conflict with their beliefs
Narrative thinkers are lawyers
They argue their case
Twist truth for their case
They distort reality and the world
Critical Thinkers are scientists
They don’t make truth black and white, Good and Evil
They seek truth
They know they don’t know
Because that is the truth
They add and remove
Hope is necessary
Stop shitting on this world
For something, you don’t fucking know
But you spread it like it’s the only thing
Fucking lies corrupt
We are divided because you turned a belief into a certainty
and it’s not
Thousands of books to expand your mind
And make you less ignorant
Don’t choose just one
Or only books related to just one
You have something to offer the world
Don’t marginalize what you offer
Which is an antidote to some modern problems
All so you can say it’s all true, it’s all true
Fucking lies
Be part of the whole or fuck off
Your not helping

Really

Donald Trump is respected, I’m obviously not in on the joke, It is a joke, right?
Things are warming! That’s Climate. Winter is freezing. That’s weather!
Ignorant people have a voice and preach the team message
No one thinks their ignorant, except those who read
I’m not talking Facebook
Hate is spread easy
Ideas are like arseholes
Channel Seven says Carebears and Cabbage patch dolls are worth $3000
eBay must be doing TV advertising
The Christians are nice but stick with big business
Big business has power and could make the world better
Which hurts profits
The Asians were right, you should squat to shit
Black lives don’t matter unless it’s profitable
Jesus said something about love, but opinion and beliefs get in the road
The world could burn, that’s OK, the end of days means Christians are right
I love everyone but have opinions, so I am isolated
40% of life has been wiped off the planet
That’s OK, the world is evil, Jesus is returning
Choose the future or people, it seems you can’t have both
The ABC is the enemy because they are not the voice of Big Business
Big Business protects certain Christian ideal to keep them voting non-green
Pro-Life, Environment is a scam by smart people (scientists) – Evil Cabal
Gays burn, marriage is for us, not for them
Evolution is without a doubt, that means facts and truth is a lie
Thank you, America and Big Business
Club Seals they don’t matter, yesterday views
Sugar is good, Fat is bad – Money distorts truth and causes corruption
Love
Love
Love
Real Love
Fake Love
Truth
Care for us or care for all
All means future
Us means Jesus is returning and also death to reality

Sex is amazing
Sex is great
But don’t use a cactus
You’ll injure your date

Love is so special
Love is so free
But don’t fuck an echidna
You’ll wreck your pee pee

Fucking is cool
But sometimes not free
Don’t pay for a hooker
You’ll end up with Hep-C

Intercourse is awesome
Intercourse is fun
But leave out the pineapple
You’ll ruin your pizza

Love your fellow man
Like you love yourself
Not like that Terry
That’s bad for your health
Be kind to everyone
Including yourself
Not like that Terry
That’s bad for your health
Smile in the morning
Smile in the afternoon
Not like that Terry
Mate get off the shrooms
Look after your family
Show them lots of love
For fuck’s sake Terry
Mate, get off the drugs
Sleep well weary travellers
Be kind to yourself
Terry for fuck’s sake
Get some sleep you’ve been up for three days

 

Shed your skin

Have a great day
Know that you’re fine
You’re ok

We’re all fools and failures
In our own way

So don’t worry too much
About what has come and what’s past

For Jesus once said
The first will be last

It’s as much your story
As the rest of the cast

Life is a tragedy
If you don’t learn to laugh

At yourself before others
For you know all your faults

And if you don’t, you’re in trouble
For the best of us moult

We throw off our old skin
To allow for new growth

If your life is a party
Then be a good host

Don’t forget the small voices
When giving a toast

And be your own target
If it comes with a roast

For if you shed your dead skin
You’ll be right to boast

Because you’ve learnt from your lessons
And you’ve read the footnotes

About your foibles and follies
And all the things you’ve done wrong

Turn it around
It’ll play out in song

You’ve learnt to submit
To the truth of the world

The world is your oyster
So go make a pearl

– Ricky N Browne

Sin & Forgiveness

Jesus did do many marvelous things
But the biggest of all is related to sin

That forgiveness is real
if you let it in
And the second is that
we’re all sinners within

It’s not really magic
or something from above

The first is a value
based on truth and love

The second is science
and the nature of man

Which works with or without
the idea of God’s plan

That people are faulty
and make all as sorts of mistakes
And in bad conditions, we can turn into snakes

But we can learn to do better
Be better and grow
And learn not only to reap
But also to sow

A society that allows for forgiveness
Is robust, right and strong
For we’re not always tormented for the things we’ve done wrong

So my advice to my brethren
You can take a sign

Is forgiveness of others
Brings peace of mind
And forgiveness of self
Is close to Devine

For we all can be snakes
When we are lost
Hurt or broken
Or when ugly words
Have been to easily spoken

Or when we don’t have the knowledge, understanding and guidance

About our drives and psychology and things we’ve learnt through good science

About the nature of humans
Our evolutionary drives

That causes us to do things that aren’t always right.

So stop thinking you’re bad
Or good for that matter

For if you do
you lie to others and yourself
Your lies cause mind corruption
And are bad for your health

You’re human and faulty
Capable of good and bad
Don’t deny your own shadow
It’ll send you half mad

Through knowledge and understanding
You can be a great person

Who’s aware of their drives
And their motivations

And you’ll learn to treat others
with more love and patience

These words that I say are more than just statements

They are keys to your growth
And the growth of others

Remember:
We’re human and all make mistakes, including yourself, that you’ll have to face.
It doesn’t mean your bad or evil, it means it’s time to forgive yourself for your sin, and others who sinned against you.
And know that you can have forgiveness, you can give it to yourself and others.

Let it all go
Recognise your faults
And see the world anew.

Sorry

I was born in Condobolin
In the New South of Whales
Where old men were bigots
And told wicked tales
I’d end up in Dubbo
The place of the Rams
On the same rust red dirt
On the same sacred land
It was 90% whites there and 10% Blacks
We’d patronise Koori’s
Then tell jokes to their backs
They’d get a raw deal wherever they go
I learned all the jokes
Retold like a pro
I could have sold tickets and put on a show
I could spread all that hate
And make some good dough
90% racist, I said terrible things
But I got the big laughs
So I chalked them up to wins
I got punched in the head
Twice by Black Fellas
Fucken’ black cunts
They were all fucken’ jealous
And violent to add
which proved the white fella’s views
That the blacks were all problems
And they had no excuse
But the world was a-changin’
For better, not worse
I learned of the truth
Of the black fella’s curse
They were under white thumbs
Wherever they went
And I’d stay part of the problem
If I stayed in the tent
With the racist and bigots
And know all white men
I can no longer sit there
And try to pretend
That my actions weren’t hurting
That black 10%
All the Koori’s I’d shit on
At the white man’s defence
I was the problem
Along with my mob
It was their land we trod on
It was their land we flogged
And to add insult to injury
I made all those jokes
At the expense of the proud Indigenous folk
I deserved those two punches
The punishment was light
Now I say, my black brothers
I’ll take up the fight
For the cause of a people
The Indigenous Plight
A redeemed yobbo racist
Who admits he were wrong
I’m sorry my brothers, so I put it in song
– Ricky N Browne

 

The best things in life

Set your own agenda
Run your own race
Find your true north
And at your own pace
Be authentic and different, but not for difference’s sake
Learn from the culture and only take what is great
Respect what is past, what was given and lost
Know that everything good, it comes at a cost
Sure the best things are free, but they still come with a price
But that cost is worth paying for the best things in life
Like family, freedom and love, and things exciting and nice
Don’t hand over your future to the roll of a dice
The cost is effort and time in meeting your needs
And you’ll grow your account by doing good deeds
Care for family, friends, your kids and your mob
And your community and land and all things under god
Get help, give help and be part of your tribe
But ignore not your heart if you’re expecting to thrive
If that’s all too much just start with your bit
You end up alone if you don’t give a shit
About everything free under the sun
Free is the best but it’s part of the sum
So give when you can and look after yourself
For you’re no good to no one if you don’t have your health
Be thankful for peace and peace of mind
Know that your truth will be written, if only in space and time

– Ricky N Browne

Nothing

Not a man
Not a note
Not a bird
Not a stoat
Not a word
Not a quote
All gone
All died
All finished
Not a spark
Not a flint
Not a light
Or maybe not
Possibly not
Hope
A thought
Maybe just a thought
That is enough
Enough

– Ricky N Browne

Happy Soon

Something is missing in my life
Maybe I need more ram
Maybe I need a high capacity solid-state drive
Maybe I need the latest processor
I might as well just get a new laptop
But I can only afford a mid-range laptop
Maybe I need to get a loan
Yeah that’s what I need
I’ll be happy then
So happy!

Stop lying

Stop lying for money
Stop lying in ego
Stop lying about yourself
To yourself
Stop lying for power
Stop lying to soothe
Stop lying for reputation
Stop lying for social dominance
Stop being a fraud
Be real
Be true
Be you
Just you
The best you
You don’t have all the answers
You can’t have all the answers
There are things known
And nothing is certain
But things that work and things that are tested
Stop lying
Stop lying for friends
Stop lying for family
Stop lying for your team
Stop lying for your tribe
Be honest
Don’t pretend to know
Sure have faith
But don’t pretend to know
Please stop lying
It affects us all

The One!

There can be only one
There can be only some
There can be only none
There can be only 658
There can be whatever you think
You’re making it up
You don’t have the answer
Accept that
Accept it

Be kind
It affects us all
You are hurt so you hurt
You feel less so you lessen
Stop judging others to redirect judgement
We are all found wanting
Be kind
