Barely Functioning

November 4, 2016

A barely remotely functioning
Humanoid on the outside

A catastrophic how the fuck
Do I even exist, soul on the inside

Not sure what I’m going after
My perceptions are a disaster

Frightening as to what is acceptable
When my reality, thinks it is,  all bull

One against 7 billion is not a thrill. Sorry
Morpheous, I meant to take the blue pill

How dare you say it is too late
It’s with others I would like to relate

C’mon, please give me two of the other
Will do no good huh, so why bother?

It is okay,  I am glad I took the red
I like stepping where angels fear to tread

Would rather be me and a clever heretic
Regardless how others know I’m pathetic

For it is waves that I unintentionally make
In the past about something I spake

Thoughts kept to self, creates harmony
Insanity revealed might start a tsunami

Must be why, I jot down, the jot of my thoughts on this blog.           To keep myself and precepts from being corralled by a sheepdog

It’s easy to think I’m a belief destroyer
I just want to be a * “Peaceful Warrior”

I looked it up, I know I am recondite
It must be what inspires me to write

* Dan Millman “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”

Rush excerpt from “2112” Neil Peart

I believed what I was told.
I thought it was a good life,
I thought I was happy.
Then I found
something that changed it all

“There is just enough bullshit to hold things together in this country.

Bullshit is the glue, that binds us as a nation. Where would we be without our safe, familiar, American bullshit?

Land of the free, home of the brave, the American dream, all men are equal, justice is blind, the press is free, your vote counts, business is honest, the good guys win, the police are on your side, god is watching you, your standard of living will never decline… and everything is going to be just fine—

The official national bullshit story. I call it the American okie doke. Every one, every one of those items is provably untrue at one level or another, but we believe them because they’re pounded into our heads from the time we’re children.

That’s what they do with that kind of thing—pound it into the heads of kids, ‘cause they know the children are much too young to be able to muster an intellectual defense against a sophisticated idea like that, and they know that up to a certain age children believe everything their parents tell them.

And as a result, they never learn to question things. Nobody questions things in this country anymore.

Nobody questions it—everybody is too fat and happy. Everybody’s got a cell phone that’ll make pancakes and rub their balls now— Way too fucking prosperous for our own good. Way too fucking prosperous,

Americans have been bought off and silenced by toys and gizmos. And no one learns to question things.”

George Carlin

Written by Neil Peart

We’ve taken care of everything
The words you read, the songs you sing
The pictures that give
pleasure to your eyes

It’s one for all and all for one
We work together, common sons
Never need to wonder how or why

//

Don’t annoy us further!
We have our work to do
Just think about the average
What use have they for you?

//

Forget about your silly whim
It doesn’t fit the Plan!
