TIME'S WHIRLIGIG  Anarchios Press Limited edition 100 copies signed £5

The latest pamphlet from Alexis Lykiard, Time’s Whirligig (Anarchios Press, £5) contains a number of splendid series of attacks on all things vertical — monarchy, celebrity, privilege, hierarchy, religion, authority — as in Keeping Them Down.

“Bully for priests, presenters, princes, politicians,/all pundits who abuse their privileged positions;/pimps with wild promises for any dupe to hear,/claiming to 'make things absolutely clear'... flags flutter, Leaders wave, as we all watch The Show,/a hapless herd stunned by the magic status quo!”

The book’s an update of that famous description in The Communist Manifesto of the way that under capitalism “all that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.”
