Hereby a new poem by yours truly: Hubris and Megalomania.
Abandoning myself to megalomania,
the sweetest affliction...
Hubris 24/7... excessive self-pride,
believing myself to be more than a
man – to be a superman, a man-god...
“I take a pride in probing all your secret moves,
my tearless retina takes pictures that can prove...”
I am hubris, megalomania and self-pride...
I am history. I am victory. I am alchemy.
I thank God for having made me to
pursue my mission here on Earth...
I am Life on Earth... I am What on Earth.
I want power. I want willpower...
Being occupied with self-idolatry,
worshiping the genius of me.
Having fanatical faith and hope in
the triumph of Actionism, the
saving grace of mankind...
Everything I do is religion...
I am Religion.
Burn, holy flame...!
Rage, holy fire...!
I am the holy flame --
I am the holy fire --
fire burns within.
I am megalomania, self-pride, hubris...
I am arrogance, egomania, self-reliance...
I am self-interest, self-love, self-possession --
self-worship... glorified selfishness.
I am self-admiration.
I am self-confidence, self-respect --
pridefulness, self-regard, suffiency.
I am self-glorification...
... and, since God is within me,
in this way I glorify God.
I am zealotry, devotion, enthusiasm --
passion, tenacity, providence.
I am devoted, faithful, zealous...
I am sworn, true blue, true to the end...
I am zeal, ardor, diligence, fervor,
gusto... ‘cos “the word is gusto” as
Chandler said, that’s how to write, that’s
how to be ruthless in a creative sense.
I am pizzazz, charm, glamor, magnetism,
appeal, dazzle, fascination, flash, “it”...
I’m an “it” man and a hitman...
I am intensity, passion, urgency, verve, zest --
alacrity, drive, enterprise, intent, push, yen.
And “yen” in this context is no Japanese coin...
it means, a strong desire or inclination...
That’s me -- that’s the Actionist me, just me
and my operation, now and forever...
