Obedience

Manipulated obediency

From all sides through

Manufactured consent

Utilizing divisiveness

That at any given point

One side ranks superior

To an opposing side as a

Means of controlling all

In a mindless tit-for-tat

Regarding the following

“Your” “Team”, “Your” “City” etc..

The “Brand” you “prefer” sometimes

Based on nothing except a

Jingle, slogan or logo

Droned on and drummed into

Your subconscious as programed

Through audio and visual repetition

Malware infecting gray matter

Race, religion, ethnicity

Gender, sexuality, orientation

Independent, democrat, republican

“Red” state “Blue” state, even “Purple”

Wealth, poverty, social status

None which exist

At anyone’s core

Just you being

A being

A spirit

A consciousness

A ghost

In the machine

A pilot within

The * microscopic dot

Navigating the world

Filtered through

Layers of masks

Either imprisoned by self

By obediently following

Their “rules” “they” change or

Self imposed castle walls

Or a state run cell block

You are your own warden

Who has the skeleton key

To open the cage

Set yourself free from

Obedience

It is all for what?

If it is all for naught.

Tone Deaf

If you can willfully choose to “tone it up” when you can knowingly “tone down” your rhetoric and choose inciting the degradation of civility.

You are not a leader. You are a narcissistic nincompoop that is so self serving it is incomprehensible you still have a job.

Perhaps it is just a matter of him wanting to be a glaringly obvious grandiose narcissistic archetypal example of the “Peter Principal”.

 
“The Peter principle states that a person who is competent at their job will earn promotion to a more senior position which requires different skills. If the promoted person lacks the skills required for their new role, then they will be incompetent at their new level, and so they will not be promoted again.

But if they are competent at their new role, then they will be promoted again, and they will continue to be promoted until they eventually reach a level at which they are incompetent.

Being incompetent, they do not qualify to be promoted again, and so remain stuck at that final level for the rest of their career (termed “Final Placement” or “Peter’s Plateau”).”

– Wikipedia

“Peter Principle”
Book by Laurence J. Peter

 

Since it never seemed like he really wanted to be president, simply rose to a level of incompetence and stayed there.

Apparently the Republican star#uckers are turning away both blind eyes to all his bad behaviors. Riding some, practically demonic coattails for some reason they can’t let go. Regardless how hot it gets.

Likewise his base, still defending the indefensible. What is indefensible? If you would not behave exactly the same way in similar circumstances doing what he does, would be impossible to defend.

“my god sits in the back of the limousine
my god comes in a wrapper of cellophane
my god pouts on the cover of the magazine
my god’s a shallow little bitch trying to make the scene

I have arrived and this time you should believe the hype
I listened to everyone now I know that everyone was right
I’ll be there for you as long as it works for me
I play a game
it’s called insincerity

Feeling Left Out

Of a representative democracy

No one represents me, boo hoo

Not even close, I want meritocracy

No vote required including you too

 

 

Each person doing what they enjoy

What else would you rather want

As if doing it for free without employ

There’s absolutely no reason we can’t

 

 

Beware the phrase *”we the people” please

For it does not include you you you or I

Consider who gets away with legalese

Pay attention to the lawmakers, it’s a lie

“In Order to form a more perfect Union”

For whom? It certainly is not the people.

It is for those who write it down or choose to erase it.

Free health care, lifelong pensions, etc.

Insure domestic Tranquility.

How are they going to do that, more stormtroopers? How about the guy walking down the street or driving his car is disproportionately assaulted or killed for BWBB: being, while being black.

Where is his Tranquility?

Provide for the common defence.

That’s quite the ruse, for invading sovereign nations and stealing their shit.

Promote the general Welfare

Definition interlude.

Welfare : the state of being happy, healthy, or successful.

Seems more like discontent is promoted.

“Cause that’s all you ever hear about in this country. It’s our differences. That’s all the media and the politicians are ever talking about–the things that separate us, things that make us different from one another. 

That’s the way the ruling class operates in any society. They try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money!”

Fairly simple thing. Happens to work. You know? Anything different–that’s what they’re gonna talk about–race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other, so that they can keep going to the bank!”

– George Carlin

Secure the Blessings of Liberty to “ourselves” and “our” Posterity.

There it is in black, against a white background.

“Establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Section 8

1: The Congress shall have Power

(Out of context, but you get the idea)

.
“Democracy is the worst kind, I am sorry,  but it is. We get to pick our leaders..well…

What if I don’t want a leader? Where does that vote go? I do good on my own, I don’t want to be “led”. Is that freedom?”

“American Idol (Idle) was the number one show on television // those are the people picking your leaders with less insight then they put in to whether or not Rubin Stoddard should win an award. It’s dumb”

Common interest. Hmmm, having a good time traveling on the spherical spaceship we are all on.

Orange Explained

When you have nasty narcissism nestled above your neck, vile bile spewing from your hate generating ornery orifice, malevolent disregard for fellow space travelers, corruption, deception, and greed bleeding from every pore.

Regardless, how well you try and shower it off, orange is the best you will get.

Though the second one had rhymes, it didn’t seem to flow like the first one, so I’d pick the top one. For what I do not know, they both just blurted out of my fingers.
