La Giovinezza...some thoughts

Margareth Thatcher on TV

Shocked by the deaths that took place in Beijing

It seems strange that she should be offended

The same orders are given by her

I've said this before now

You said I was childish and you'll say it now

"Remember what I told you

If they hated me they will hate you"

England's not the mythical land of Madame George and roses

It's the home of police who kill black boys on mopeds

And I love my boy and that's why I'm leaving

I don't want him to be aware that there's

Any such thing as grieving

Young mother down at Smithfield

5 am, looking for food for her kids

In her arms she holds three cold babies

And the first word that they learned was "please"

These are dangerous days

To say what you feel is to dig your own grave

"Remember what I told you

If you were of the world they would love you"

England's not the mythical land of Madame George and roses

It's the home of police who kill blacks boys on mopeds

And I love my boy and that's why I'm leaving

I don't want him to be aware that there's

Any such thing as grieving.

"Hard to explain."

Nope. You're gay.

What if I were? I'm not, but I bear no malice against the Sapphic and Onanistic. I do not condone pederasty as such, but mature homosexuality is most welcome to those so inclined, as I am not.

I simply resonate to a different time and different people.

Oh poo. It's still Saturday night in Five Forks, and the Pig-Killer brothers have just walked into Rick's. They'll be looking down the front of my China Poblana blouselet.

Jody --

You pretend you're dressed up in some kicky military uniform - you sit home alone on a Saturday night listening to Italian marching songs and you have "a different past."

Connect the dots.

I'm no expert - but off-hand? You sound like a cocksucker.

I am now thouroughly perplexed at almost everything posted here. And not in a woo-woo way. In a I'm lost in the goddamn nutcase wing of inverted world way.

Is it because of the holidays???

Does this thread or the Borger, TX thread make sense to you?

No! None whatsoever!

Ah screw it. Anyway, I'm watching Saturday Night Live and I noticed that Shakira has belly cleavage.

But doesn't she have the prettiest face? (If she's the one I'm thinking I saw on a poster across the street the other day).

Jody,

Oh, Sandra, I've been red-x'ed. Someone has cancelled my nice photo of Il Duce. This board is anti-Fascii, isn't it? The world has changed so much from that of my first life. There we were gay and free. We threw flowers at the handsome boys as they marched off to disaster in the horrid betrayal of Caporetto. And then HE came and gave us hope!

I must be boring you.

No one can understand the strength of that man.

What he meant to us.

I was just a young child in Milan when Caporetto came down. Do you know what that defeat meant to Italian children? No...no....you don't. You can't. You were not there. I was.

But now I'm in Five Forks serving Zesty's (our night grillman) pork brain omelettes to the Pig-Killer brothers and to old drunk Zachiariah who almost burned down the Methodist church last year looking for a gas leak.

Only Benito Mussolini and Eric Fletcher, with his urine-powered engine, make any sense.

I could cry, but even tears won't come.

Jody.

If I may be so bold.

Would you be so kind to impart upon us a story?

To while away the hours at Ricks?

Had to share this. Ha Ha. The Pig-Killer brothers came to the register to pay and said they really liked the change in Xmas music. They think La Giovinezza is a Christlike song. Ha Ha.

A fat woman just now came in and said just about the same thing. She ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and Zesty is looking for a block of velveeta we had under the drain cabinet a few months ago. Does that stuff keep?

I wish Eric would get his urine-powered bike fixed and come and sweep me off to somewhere exotic and exciting.

I have no stories from this dreadful lifetime. Only what I've already told you about waiting tables in China Poblana and Eric Fletcher's urine-powered engine.

In my first passing, I was the daughter of an optician in Milano. We lived a comfortable existence until the war came. I mean the war with Austria, not later when we were fighting Jews and Yanks in tanks. I was somethiing like 13 when Caporetto happened. An entire generation of Italian lads wiped out in snowy mountain passes. The loss of Fiume, which the great D'Annunzio, a poet, and adventurer, the handsomest man I have ever seen, got back for us. Then the Black Shirts taking over the government. It was for the best. We invaded Ethiopia and made it a better place, minus the barbaric Ethiopians.

What other stories can I tell?

Rick's is getting busy with the silage crowd. They have a break around this time. They smell like fermented soybeans, well that what silage is anyway, isn't it?

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

The Battle of Caporetto (or Battle of Karfreit as it was known by the Central Powers), took place from 24 October to 9 November 1917, near Kobarid, in what is now Slovenia, on the Austro-Italian front of World War I. Austro-Hungarian forces, reinforced by German units, were able to break into the Italian front line and rout the Italian army, which had practically no mobile reserves. The battle was a demonstration of the effectiveness of the use of stormtroopers and the infiltration tactics developed in part by Oskar von Hutier. Erwin Rommel added lustre to his military career leading some Central Power forces during this battle.

Italian losses were enormous: 275,000 prisoners were taken and 2,500 guns captured; 40,000 were killed and 20,000 wounded. Austro-German forces advanced more than 100 km in the direction of Venice, but they were not able to cross the River Piave, where the Italians (with substantial help from French, British and American allies) established a new defensive line, which was held for the rest of the war.

The battle led to the conference at Rapallo and the creation of a Supreme War Council, with the aim of improving Allied military co-operation and developing a unified strategy.

The bloody aftermath of Caporetto was vividly described by Ernest Hemingway in his novel A Farewell to Arms.

Luigi Cadorna was in charge of the Italian forces and was forced to resign after the defeat. He was replaced by Armando Diaz and Pietro Badoglio (who later became head of the Italian government in place of Mussolini after the fall of Fascism in 1943) .

The debacle was not the result of a lack of repression or coercion. In fact, 870,000 Italian soldiers came to be denounced by authorities with 210,000 sentences in military courts; 15,000 were sentenced to life in jail and 4,000 to death. There were rumors of illegal decimations taking place after the fashion of Ancient Rome to attempt to terrorise the remaining soldiers into fighting to the death. The failure of the Italian army was most likely because of the preponderance of peasants in an army which fought through terror. Many of these soldiers could not understand the national language or their battle orders.

This led governments to the realisation that terror alone cannot adequately motivate a modern army. After the defeat at Caporetto, Italian propaganda offices were established and cynically promised land and social justice to soldiers. Italy also accepted a more cautious military strategy from this point on. Just one fifth of the total 650,000 Italian casualties during the war occurred after Caporetto.

After this battle, the term "Caporetto" gained a particular resonance in Italy. It is used to denote a terrible defeat - the failed General Strike of 1922 by the socialists was referred to by Mussolini as the "Caporetto of Italian Socialism".

Oh, Sandra, we are ON Nullchester Street.

Do you know it? Things get pretty lively here around this time of year. Isn't this December 11th? Do you know that tomorrow is a big holiday?

A big, big holiday.

Nullchester Street will have cars blowing their horns and someone will walk a dry-cow down the street with a nameplate hanging from its neck.

In one of your previous posts, you mention "The Negro of Lostwood"..

And that people have said that you die, right after seeing the Negro.

Is there anymore to that story?
