Recently, the supposed top wealthiest countries sent their leaders to the G-8 summit at the Lough Erne golf resort in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.

Symbolically

By tradition, during these summits, the 8 leaders would get together for what they call the “family group photo.”

Actually 

In the picture above there are 10 people posing and not 8, so there is a problem with counting – with the math.

The architecture behind the figures looks like a castle. Could that be considered a moat behind them? In the front is an obvious road. Then on the side of the road is this long rectangular shaped platform for the figures to stand on. What is this some raised dais for royalty? Who got to decide on who got to stand where; who got to be in the middle? I’m sure the summit was touted as a great success for each country and each leader attending, but they couldn’t even agree on – “Do we wave or not, who starts and when to start; when do we end.” And look at those ominous clouds in the background. In all actuality, this looks more like a picture of wannabe kings and queens. And we all know what the history of royalty has done to the environment of sense and sensibility; health, wealth and happiness of the people!

So these ‘anointed ones’  walked out of the castle-look resort to a black platform in the road and stepped up to their raised platform of importance. And then they wave or did not wave to whom? Where are the vehicles of transportation on the road? Where are the animals or the subjects of their king-queendoms? Who staged this stupid picture? It looks more like the silly childish song with lines like:

“Put your right arm in
take your right arm out
Put your right arm in
And shake it all about
Do the hokey pokey
And turn yourself about
That’s what it’s all about.”
 

Doin’ the Hokey Pokey
 

Just I-Magine,
