Apostrophe

Are you going to turn away from this post?

Such a little thing, the apostrophe, it turns cant into can’t.

Such a little thing, the apostrophe, when the apostolic has atrophied under the weight of national trophies, agendas and historical hypocrisies.

The WI holds a focus for the Creative Feminine to stand amidst the pinionation of our Cinderella souls, hidden under an apostrophe of we’ll survive in Love alone.

What is truth? By definition it is not an opinion, the truth shall set you free. So if It’s here now is actually true, what’s hiding under the apostrophe short-circuiting presence? Ah, do you see, it is an “I”.

The apostrophe denotes possession, the claim on the open road hammered to a piratical post, the sign that says that this is mine, maintained first by force of violence, then by the threat of violence, then enshrined in laws maintained to dispense the violent threat with the sanitised violence of a civilised society.

The pinions of our individual souls become cut and then like flightless chickens we are farmed to meet the challenges of our time, set by those that sanitise history with the cant of their rendition that it’s always been this way and without this way, it would be worse.

With the cords of war squealing dissonance across the swirling tracts of time, the chords of our hearts’ desires are shattered, unable to unite as the cracking whips of long atrophied policies hold the trophies of patriotism up once more to justify their triggering of such profitable atrocity, as war.

How to escape from this horror? I can only repeat what I’ve said before ….

See that there is an illness to recover from and that all are in it, including me. See that when the messenger brings this fact to bear upon our situation that it will be as a mirror to the highly opinionated, so it will be initially dismissed as highly opinionated.

I have no opinions. I have a diagnosis that is true. The letters of truth shall set you free.

Origin

mid 16th century (denoting the omission of one or more letters): via late Latin, from Greek apostrophos ‘accent of elision’, from apostrephein ‘turn away’, from apo ‘from’ + strephein ‘to turn’. (from an internet search on Bing)
