The Inexorable Laws of Jinx (Introduction)

Author's Note: This here is the opening chapter of a new book by ItzQuauhtli. Stay tuned for additional installments!


 
Introduction to General Jinx-Ology


Here by leave of the most supernal ones ever to exist
Are laid forth for unfortunate mortals' benefit
These Inexorable Laws of Jinx ...

Who Now?

Jinx is a Chancer unlike any before or since non-time stopped
Hailing from the highest order of Archetypal Beings
Whose purpose in the Multiverse transcends
Even that of gods, demons, and demiurges.

You see, some basic parameters pertaining to holographic reality
Are set in tones too loud for human ears to hear
And beyond bright for biological blinkers to behold.
Thus is Jinx in charge of Fate and its ironic implications.

(Since of course the fortune of any single individual
Within the greater whole differs widely
From every other entity)

Indeed — such heavy responsibility
Forces clever Jinx to improvise
In order to remain entertained.

Hence do all tricksters without exception
Draw their lineage (directly or indirectly) to Major High Jinx.
Yet there are none so influential as
That utterly irreverent double-dealer!

Say What?

The superstitious whisper their beliefs about Major High Jinx
Without actually understanding its dynamic mechanics
Therefore their assumptions are naught but foolish gimmicks. 
Let us set the record straight:

Jinx is neither good luck nor bad luck.
It's rather neutral and weird
But may serve any incarnate being
If they can figure out how to surf waves made of pure improbability.

Jinx isn't altogether male or female
But either one as suits its momentary purpose.
Genderless Jinx runs throughout spacetime
Weaving both waves and particles when observed by someone sentient.

Jinx is neither here nor there
Atemporal quasi-space is its conduit.
Being nowhere in particular
Enables Jinx to be omnipresent in temporal affairs.

Its masks are myriad in appearance;
Multifarious in finite form.
Many host Jinx without knowing it;
A seeming curse a disguised blessing!

Come Again?

Jinx might also be referred as The Devil's Luck
Because it can be exploited by a Thaumaturge of whatever sex.
In other words, those skilled in Sympathetic Magic
(Often allied with forces considered dark in nature).
Be aware, such Mages and Court Jesters are closely connected
A true Fool is player as well as played.
However, the Grand Game is never named!

Synchronicity, uncanniness, and sheer irony
Are all side-effects of Jinx in action.
Their endless variety constitutes the selfsame Spice of Life.
Jinx stacks random odds in favor of, or against whomever lives
According to their own Consciousness + Karma
(Much more will be explained about this further along).
First though, oblations. Pay your respects before proceeding;

Hail High Jinx in all its permutations upon ephemeral material spheres!

Hallowed be Jinx among mere mortals who hope for positive change!

May Jinx forestall the untimely collapse of this and neighboring universes!

History Repeats

"That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history." ~ Aldous Huxley

History Repeats

 
We must alter our behavior
Lest they bend us through control
As we flirt with grim disaster
In their twisted game of minds

This whole world is mired in words
Too much faith is staked on lies
Come September and it'll be last year
History repeats itself History repeats!

The towers are coming down
During commercial-break distractions
Can we really justify such actions?
Can we even make peace anymore?

Never ready for indignity
Our social ignorance runs rampant
Nude and wild in broad daylight
Deja-Vu served up with trimmings

Voices crack due to tired insecurity
Exhausted by the laws
Of a mute and idle GOD
Martyrs broken by his treachery

So light a lantern in the darkness
Prepare a pyre for the funeral
That all might be reborn
Bright as the skies' celestial eyes

Because History repeats itself

History repeats ...

Kerin Gedge, a projectionist coping with the lack of much to do when his Employer went digital years ago, decided to use his downtime to rewrite the English Dictionary as poetry (mainly because he'd always wanted to read it but frankly found it boring). Recently made redundant thanks to technology,  Kerin lives in New Zealand and is exploring career options in between writing The Vocabuverse as well as being a full time Dad!



Charlemagne


There was a king called Charlemagne
Charles the first also his name 

King of the Franks in seven sixty eight 
Later on a King in Italy
Remembered throughout history
By his designation: Charles the Great!

Since in the West Rome’s Empire fell
The books about those days do tell
He was the first in three whole centuries 

To bear the title “Emperor”, 
And Holy Roman Emperor, 
Crowned so by Pope Leo number three.
 

After fall of Roman Empire
He was the first king to acquire
Most of Western Europe in his grasp 

Which he ruled for thirteen years 
Until he left earth’s mortal sphere 
In eight one four when alas he breathed his last.

 "To have another language is to possess a second soul." ~ Charlemagne

Paradigmatic

Paradigmatic


Rough around the edges

Round rhymes for square wedges

Hidden from view behind thick hedges


Produced as memory dredges

Double-crossed by disloyal pledges

Innocent of anything anyone alleges


Stays unfazed if hit with sledges

Hope it hangs from highest ledges

Like streamlined arrows given fledges


That's enough — close up your ledgers!


Over-Rhyme:

Imagination rarely stretches

What a poor price knowing fetches

Even learning barely etches

Credible and discernible sketches.

Ass Appeal

Ass Appeal

 

Lust and libido lock down logic
Perversions preeminently pedagogic

Dat ass runs crowd control
Doubly dynamic and droll

Booty bounce vexes both sexes
Making some more ambidextrous

Naughty Illuminati hottie
Exploits blind minds with tight body

Rear end rhapsody
Defying gravity through depravity

At either end of the spectrum
Society has its head up a rectum

Addendum:

Scarlet woman; whore of Babylon?
(Too much ado about butts)
Religious prudes ramble on
The rest say: "Hooray For Sluts!"
