Opher’s Art

When I was a young man, in one of my obsessive creative phases, I did a lot of paintings. These are they:




Nuclear warhead




Spaced out in red


Spaced out in blue


Bedroom 1973


Dylan as a baby


Liz and Dylan


Are we well hung?


I thought I knew what I was doing


Sitting room 1973


Portrait of the artist as a young man


More sitting room 1973




The artist in a good light


Having a bad day


You know I don’t feel myself today!

Lies Lies Lies – A poem

Lies Lies Lies


Look out!!!  Terrorists!!

Immigrants and scroungers!!

Scamming on the NHS

The dirty foreign bounders!!


Work-shy!! Lazy bastards!!

Lying in bed all day!!

Dirty little sluts

Who like having it away!!


They are robbing our great nation!!

And it’s all the EUs faults!!

With their bent cucumbers

And bureaucratic sorts!!


We can’t arrest Bin Laden

Or deport Captain Hook!!

They’ve got to have their rights

It’s written in the book!!


The sooner we make our own laws

The sooner we’ll be free!!

To taste the honey mead of England

In sweet liberty!!!


The headlines scream their lies

For the masses to consume.

While the bankers rob us blind

As the rich sustain their boom.


Fiddling £10 on the dole

Is a crime against the nation.

While evading tax on billions

Is not worthy of sensation.



The Public Services cost too much!!

Reduce their pay and pensions.

But we must increase the CEOs pay

To avoid possible abstentions.


The poor are nowt but parasites

A stain upon our country!!

Set them to work for crumbs

Packing shelves and cleaning lavatory.


The food banks and soup kitchens

Are good enough for them!!

Addicts and alkies

Lazy scroungers and not men!!


Automate the factories

More profits for the boys

Who cares if there’s no work??

Or who it may annoy!!


Lies, lies and more lies

Are poured out everyday

To befuddle all our minds

So the big boys scam their pay.


The lust for power, wealth and fame

Is what runs this little game.

The establishment has long played it thus

And likes keeping it the same.


Big lies, little lies

Scandals and distractions.

Designed to keep us in our place

And disarm all the factions.
