"Shine Perishing Republic"
Jim Kirwan
The title of Robinson Jeffers' poem, of the same name, © 1925.
The painting is part two of The Journey (C) kirwan 1973

"While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity
Heavily thickening to empire,
And protest, only a bubble in the Molten Mass, pops
And sighs out, and the mass hardens,
I sadly smiling remember that the flower fades to make
Fruit, the fruit rots to make earth.
Out of the mother; and through the spring exultances,
Ripeness and decadence; and home to the mother.
You making haste, haste on decay: not blameworthy; life
Is good, be it stubbornly long or suddenly
A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than
Mountains: shine perishing republic
But for my children, I would have them keep their distance
From the thickening center; corruption
Never has been compulsory, when the cities lies at the
Monster's feet there are left the mountains.
And boys, be in nothing so moderate as in love of man.
A clever servant, insufferable master.
There is a trap that catches noblest spirits, that caught
­ they say ­ God, when he walked on Earth."
The illustration shows both the crude and the complex, on either side of that which we built around the stone eyes of Einstein's visions for humanity. We choose to travel back and forth through time in glass elevators, wherein we remain removed from the blood of the centuries that separate us from the past that we believe we have escaped.
But while 'changes' continue to happen people have remained the same which is why we are destined to repeat over and over again this same sad circle of creation; destruction; and decay: Seemingly without learning very much of anything at all, about the corruption that always damns the good that so many sought to do!
In today's world the fight comes down to the having the freedom to speak your mind and think your thoughts in a world where the government demands what it says is its right to control your every mood and thought. It has been ever thus for the most part. This can change, but only if we recognize the problems and then act upon what needs to happen.
Whether now or later this criminal-conspiracy that seized this nation and is reaching out to seize the entire world ­ must be brought before the world's courts to answer for all that they have done ­ whether before or after they leave office is irrelevant. It is our responsibility because we allowed this blasphemy against all that is human to not only occur, but to thrive unchallenged on our watch; which could end the last few thousand years of human struggle toward a better and more balanced world. . .
