World Environmental Week 

With India and soon Europe going through an unimaginable heatwave with two jet streams having locked in the hot hot air or should I say dragon’s fiery breath; it is time to dictate a few simple lines about this GW or Dharti-Garmi not with technically obscene jargon only those fat assed decision making people sitting on their bloated behinds having breakfasted with sausage, beans, croissants, dollops of butter and thick cut marmalade at the Breakfast Restaurant of The Waldorf, The Ritz or The Imperial Hotel, who feign to understand and then put the hammer at another jostled meeting at another exotic locale flying first class.
Neither am I implying the Greenies coming out of the woodwork after Woodstock, Isle of Wight, Sundance, Stonehenge  barefoot in their Khadi wearalls on the other end of the prism are doing an extreme job trying to sing to the trees, the grass and pray to the rain gods so rivers will again gush with passion and ice reappears on the glaciers and Mount Everest. There object is perhaps (!)fierce and passionate.
.. all I am saying is the heatwaves have one one root cause.. the overpopulation that continues… cities have done away with green cover, set up a thousand more restaurants and
Factories would only spill the soot from Monday to Friday 0900 to 1700 if there were less of us hungry humans wanting to eat drink drive crawl and marry their mobiles which we all have done..just as the stevedores in Liverpool stopped discharging cargo of my ship on Friday afternoon cause it was POET’S* day – “ see you Monday Skipper..” said the Foreman..that was nearly 50 years ago, not today .. ships depart-before-they-arrive… hurry-worry-more money ..
I mean how can we possibly listen to another human being as he lectures on the good the bad and the ugly as we silently secretly shamefully remove the bulge of the mobile from our pockets and start communicating with someone outside the room, many a million miles away ending with …? We have no real friends any more; the large global corporates are our superficial friends, they are our Mums & Dads who don’t look after your money but find ways and means to scalp you and drain you completely..
Sorry Dames and Chaps making an example of getting on a rowing boat from Land’s End to New York or getting on a train to kill the plane is a sidewinder poor example. Walking is much better, healthier like on the Camino to Santiago de Compostela..
Gretatude.. I mean the publicity is only because the correspondent sipping a latté had no other news to write off ..
Being a Sea Captain and hauling my cargoes across the oceans with utmost care and still being penalised saving my ship and lives after a hammering hurricane because “ Captain we wish to see the oil record to calculate if you cheated with the quantities of oil or pumped it into the ocean.. and sorry we cannot contact the owners because they are sitting on their fat assess having breakfast “ I realised too soon…there are those who belch burp and wind and there are us .. scapegoats who tried their damnedest  to keep the waters blue …
Someone has to take the fall for GW…but who?
Bonnie “ Vivek “ Bhasin
( the other day some wierdo asked me as to why I was wearing white pants whilst everyone else was in shorts and shitty rubber slippers ….)
Did the Lone Ranger riding on Silver wear shorts in the hot deserts of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah..huh?
*Garam Dharti : Global Warming
*GW = Global Warming
*POET’S day= Piss off early, tomorrow is Saturday..

Kindest Regards and Best Wishes,
Bonnie/Vivek Bhasin
