Happy Armistice Day

As per usual, days late and no money to be had.

(A day late and a dollar short)

 

.

The troops… You got to support the troops, right? ……..Wrong again.

You keep trying but… I’m not saying “Don’t support the troops”, I’m saying I support people on a individual basis.

I gotta meet the troop first. If I meet the troop, he’s a cool troop, we drink, and he doesn’t turn into a d****… “Yeah, support him.” I’ll support him no matter what he does.

.

But some troops are d******. Some troops are… You know them… Some are #ucking assholes. I was down in Clint, Texas, by Fort Hood.

There was a troop down there in a bar. And he wanted to hammer my head flat. Cause I accidentally dumped over his piss warm draft beer. And he was #ucking… You know how they get the #ucking forearms, swinging forward… A #ucking monkey redneck. #ucking

“Oh, you wanna kick my ass?!”

Regardless the reason

It is strange to honor

People who kill people

And then not expect

To have more and more

People who kill people

Armistice day originally

Celebrated the end of

World War 1 in 1918

Altered in 1954

To Veterans day

Guess Madison Ave

Thought it would

Be a tacky way to sell

Cars and appliances etc

(Which is more, its intended purpose)

On a day remembering peace

And had we evolved properly

Would have produced

No more Veterans

Of any more wars

(Where’s the money in that?)

“You know what gives me the creeps about the Vietnam vets, they have this obsession with wearing the hat.

They have to let you know they’re a Vietnam vet. They all wear the baseball hat with the gold leafs and the platoon and the year. “Dang Wang, ’68 to ’70, Vietnam vet.”

Why the fuck would you wear that hat? Did you forget how brutally fucked over by your own government you got on that deal? And you wear a hat celebrating it?

Nixon, in his own words in the Nixon tapes, talks openly and casually about delaying the withdrawal of troops just so he can win reelection.

“Fuck ’em if thousands more die. I need this gig again.” And then, you’re wearing a hat.

They fucked you over and then sold you merch after the gig.

How bad do you need someone to buy you a Pabst Blue Ribbon down at the VFW?

That’s like a rape victim walking around in a pink trucker cap that says, “Molested, step-brother, ’82 to ’86.” “Hey, girls, where’s all the fun at?”

Impressions

Ever get the impression

We are failing as

Human beings

Caught up in

An endless moment

Of consume

Distract and repeat

Consume

Distract and repeat

Satiating insanity

With no room left

For heart or soul

Only connected to

Disconnected connections

Overdosing on want

Plastic intervention

Rehab online

This must not be

Why we are here

Even as an aside

It becomes our

Distracted focus

‘Stead of being

Our intended being

“Presto” – Rush

If I could wave my magic wand…

I am made from the dust of the stars
And the oceans flow in my veins
Here I hide in the heart of the city
Like a stranger coming out of the rain

The evening plane rises up from the runway
Over constellations of light
I look down into a million houses
And wonder what you’re doing tonight

If I could wave my magic wand

I’d make everything all right

//

I’m not one to believe in magic
Though my memory has a second sight
I’m not one to go pointing my finger
When I radiate more heat than light

Don’t ask me
I’m just improvising
My illusion of careless flight
Can’t you see
My temperature’s rising
I radiate more heat than light

Upstaged Haiku

Playing a mind role

That doesn’t match our heart script

Time for a rewrite

Pip-Squeak

A microscopic voice

With nothing to say

Whispering platitudes

No one wants to hear

Sustaining psuedo sanity

Closing Pandora’s box

Beating horse skeletons

 

.

 

 

One whom can not seem to

Articulate his way out

From underneath a

Wet paper towel

To save himself

Or humanity

No ego there

(Yeah, right)

From such a

Pip-Squeak

Orwell’s Slogans

Are coursing / coarsen

Through our veins

Like heroin

To a heroin addict

Addicted to dichotomies

That black is white

Up is down

Right is wong

“War is peace

Ignorance is strength

Freedom is slavery”

– George Orwell

.

Why else would society

Accept the notion that

No one is above the law

Till “their” guy “breaks”

The law

Where as in any humble

Projection of the past

There is no way

As the sun will be here today

That the last

Oval office occupier

Would have gotten away

With a fraction of

The treasonously immoral

Impeachable offenses

.

I once heard of morality

Only to discover

It was herd morality

Pushed by an economy

The hamster wheel economy

As long as everyone is running

No one serms to notice

The cage is getting smaller

The screens are getting bigger

Sadistically satiating

Their ego empire

The ethnic rich

Their cruelty of class

Imitation opulence

Crumbs to look like

Cake to the masses

Cake to the masses”

.
– John Trudell

“The people will not revolt. They will not look up from their screens long enough to notice what is happening.”

– George Orwell  “1984”

The Sad State

Of our collective projection

Beamed onto a

Two dimensional humanoid

Who has no depth

Only columns and ledgers

Seen in black and white

Against a shadowy background

The only other color is red

Blood dripping / gushing

From greedy hands

Dried while lining pockets

At least 41 and 43

Had the audacity to

Conceal their crimes

Under the guise of wars

With most of the “media”

In lockstep with the deception

Now each outlet’s only goal

Is distraction

As it is all fake news

Nary a broadcast

Is intended

To elevate consciousness

Information is for

Information’s sake

Is not news it is

Merely gobbledygook

To keep you suspicious

Of your neighbor

Coworkers

Ideologies

Races

Facts etc.

Latching onto words

With duplicitous meanings

Holding on to the half

That serves one’s own purpose

If it satiates the ego

To believe “one” is right

Or one they wish

To align themselves with

Because the faith

In their internal compass

Has been left in

A sad state

Stain Remover

Remove the hat

Remove the celebrity

Remove the money

Remove the bravado

Remove the ostentatiousness

Maintain the obstruction

Maintain the emoluments

Maintain the quid pro quo

Maintain the assults

Maintain the collusion

What would remain

Would be one very guilty

Individual one

That under the rule of law

Where no one is above the law

You would simply find

Someone that society

Needs to remove
