In the Dark Places

“Our young men hid with guns,

in the dirt and in the dark places”

An unforgettably affecting and haunting song from PJ Harvey’s masterpiece “Let England Shake”, Mercury Prize Winner, 2011.

We got up early,
washed our faces,
walked the fields
and put up crosses.
Passed through

the damned mountains,
went hellwards,
and some of us returned,
and some of us did not.

In the fields and in the forests,
under the moon and under the sun
another summer has passed before us,

and not one man has,
and not one woman has
revealed the secrets of this world.

So our young men
hid with guns, in the dirt
and in the dark places.

Our young men
hid with guns, in the dirt
and in the dark places.

Our young men
hid with guns, in the forest
and in the dark places.

And not one man has,
and not one woman has
revealed the secrets of this world.

    Looks like Poop got kicked off CT! Didn’t I tell you to stick to your rubbish blog

    @ Charles/Heshan/Nihal,
    Your lies are still available for all to see, regardless of whatever Colombo Telegraph does! 🙂

    Nihal/Heshan lies again: “I have no affiliation to “Heshan” or whoever that is supposed to be.”
    Nihal/Heshan boasting about his multiple personality disorder on Groundviews:
    “I have been posting on GV with more than 3 ids for several months now. It would cost nothing, in terms of resources (save perhaps time), to increase that number to 30 or 300 via the use of a proxy server.”

    Nihal/Heshan’s nothing special, just another bog-standard Sinhala modaya liar.

    I particularly like this quote by you:
    “Sinhala-Buddhism is a failure from start to finish. One should put it on the same pedestal as Bolshevism, fascism, and homosexuality.

    As a gay person, why are you so self-critical about being gay? Even your fake email proclaims your gayness. There’s nothing to be ashamed of anymore. It’s the 21st Century. Be proud of your gayness and proclaim it loudly from the rooftops.

        @, Charles/Heshan/Nihal: who’s talking about Buddhism’s successes and failures? Only your lies, multiple personalities and hilariously idiotic and self-hating homophobia. Try to stay on topic, for Allah’s sake.

        In the ‘moron’ stake, I admit defeat. You are the unquestioned world champion. Here’re some superb examples of your award-winning moronic thinking:
        “Japan doesn’t have a military.”
        “Humans evolved from chimps”.
        “Albert Speer was not Nationalist Socialist at all”

        Yup. Charles/Heshan/Nihal is the all-year-round gifted moron who keeps giving.

        p.s. Evidence that, as a child, you were soundly beaten around the head with a coconut: ‘Mr Poop’ is David Poopalapillai, spokesman for the CTC. Do try to keep up.

          Poop reveals his intelligence yet again. Poop has been blindly repeating lies for months, typical of his Sinhala-Buddhist two-celled brain!

          “Since 1947, Japan’s constitution has forbidden the formation of a traditional military force. The country has maintained only a Self Defense Force (SDF), the mission of which has been to protect the Japanese mainland.”

          “For the commission to do a great building, I would have sold my soul like Faust. Now I had found my Mephistopheles. He seemed no less engaging than Goethe’s” – Albert Speer

          “Genetic analysis suggests that humans and chimpanzees evolved into separate species which then interbred”

          Do you know what interbred means, you worthless Sinhala-Buddhist piece of shit? It means humans indirectly evolved from chimps.

          This is probably too much for your Sinhala-Buddhist pea-brain to handle, so I will let you continue to get assraped by the Irish joker (the only moron who reads your worthless blog)

          By the way, did I mention the graphics on your blog are atrocious as well? Yet another sign of a third-rate mind! What a worthless piece of excrement your existence is.

          • Mango says:

            Ha, ha ha .. … By the Will of Allah, you’re sooooo funny! Your bonkers theories will even raise a laugh from the dead. 🙂 🙂

            So, in addition to incest, your obsession with assraping is coming to the fore. And even my graphics aren’t good enough for you. I’m distraught that I can’t satisfy a multiple personality, serial liar 🙂 🙂

            I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it: please stop denying your inner gayness. It’s tragic. You exhibit all the traits of latent homosexuality including paranoid delusions, rage and anxiety. It’s only a matter of time before your Oedipal issues also surface – if they already haven’t. 🙂 🙂

            “…Psychoanalysts use the concept of repressed or latent homosexuality to explain the emotional malaise and irrational attitudes exhibited by individuals who feel guilty about their erotic interests and struggle to deny and repress homosexual impulses…. when these individuals are placed in a situation that threatens to excite their own unwanted homosexual thoughts, they may overreact with panic, anger, or even murderous rage.

            “It is commonly agreed among most researchers that anxiety about homosexuality … usually involves individuals who are ostensibly heterosexual and have difficulty coming to term with their homosexual feelings and impulses.”

            Is Kanzi the Chimpanzee more intelligent than you? unquestionably.

            “..Kanzi has exhibited advanced linguistic aptitude… Kanzi had mastered the ten words that researchers had been struggling to teach his adoptive mother, and he has since learned more than two hundred more. When he hears a spoken word … he points to the correct lexigram..”

            Bloody hell, Heshan. Kanzi the chimp speaks two languages and you can only speak English! 🙂 🙂

            “…humans indirectly evolved from chimps.” ha ha ha ! Heshan is the missing link.

            “Speer not a Nazi” – unglaublich 🙂

            p.s. what do you reckon to Marie Colvin’s untimely and terrible demise? Another brave journalist killed in the line of fire, no?
