what are we doing here?.?.?.

justified pessimism

license granted to operate
as the usual entropy courses
through all the places it
isn’t supposed to go. hasty
judgment moving so fast before
anyone else knew the game is
up. now everything is working
with a rebuilt starter but i heard
nothing’ll ever break, so we’re
gonna be okay. everyone gives up
yet keeps going absent any
noticeable change.

mulligans are hard to come by
& cost a fortune; even then it’s
impossible to tell if it’s a do-
over or more theatrics. slicked
back cynics would read with a
gamblers eye news of the moment,
dictators, killers, thieves, rapists.
nothing new under the sun.
knowing all is still in good time
with nothing to change the
basic gameplan that shoulda been
tossed years ago.

wanna make love until the end
of time? wanna smash windows
into sand? how else are beaches
gonna get made? wanna run
until there’s nowhere left to run
toward or should we just do it
here? questions are for the
postmortem. easier facts easily
deluded until meaning is another
untended grave without anyone
to dance, spit, piss, shit or
fuck in remembrance.

is this a revolution? i see it on tv.

—————————————-

The boys from the home office want me to reiterate my hope that just once, someone will take the keys away from the disgruntled insane dictator prior to killing his own people. If not now, when? What the fuck does ‘Never Again’ really mean anyway? Oh, that’s right… not supposed to ask that question…

  1. You’ve captured the sentiments of so many in a piece that takes the reader on fast, wild ride toward conclusion. Well written.

    into sand? ….

    Who doesn’t? With all on tv that you see, this will be a rather pleasant solution to escape the depression …

    Nice one! After all watching tv was worth!

    • Glad you dug it Blaga. Yeah, this week has been FILLED with terrible developments worldwide (I know you know this already, but from a distance it looks even worse.) but there is some hope that we can still band together as a species rather than trying to tear ourselves apart. Like Jack said on LOST…”live together, die alone.” Still true. Thanks for the visit, hope you are doing ok in the midst of these ‘interesting’ times. Be safe & take care,

      crb.

  4. Actually hard to find skillful persons about this issue, but you seem like you understand exactly what you are dealing with! Many thanks
