All The While

June 12, 2018

While

It may be entertaining to
Sit back and watch the show

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

His dialogue degrades civility it also
Races to the bottom of depravity

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

Rome is burning and the
Institutions are collapsing

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

No one is actually harmed
By childish name calling

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

A money grab thru tax reform
Might be easy, legal and unnoticed

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

Half the cost of the weapons used
On Syria could have fixed Flint’s pipes

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

Out of the womb fetuses are aborted
From classrooms, that could be stopped

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

 

While

 

As emperor king you solely try to decide
Who can enter your fiefdom or thief dumb

One, must ask themselves
If that was me as President

Would I behave like that?

As long as the economy keeps plugging along, it’s a laissez-faire free for all, so we consume everything the corporations can kick out of their factories with higher and higher prices.

To the same degree that health care turns malignant and education is dumbed down.

Fueled in every household by the telescreens playing out the suspense, drama, comedy, tragedy whodunit mystery with constant chaotic commentators, some giving clues, some distracting from same clues.

With the bulk of the content provided by the same advertisers. On eve channel.

The big ones sponsoring every angle by friends, hoping to get in the last word before the eleventh hour spinning around 360 degrees, separated in 60 minute increments, before getting all tuckered out from the calamity in the shadows.

“Since Trump became president, cable news networks have enjoyed strong ratings. With late-breaking news from Washington seemingly a daily occurrence,”

– Forbes

By calling it news, we can only delude ourselves that we are being informed. If “news” was called “speculation and hyperbole”, which is closer to the truth.

The collective would realize they are simple pawns in an unwitting game of consumerism.

“You guys are obsessed with Trump. Did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him.

I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn’t sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you.

He’s helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster, and now you’re profiting off him.

And if you’re going to profit off Trump, you should at least give him some money, because he doesn’t have any.”

– Michelle Wolf

Guess we could kind of blame MTV, Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly for initiating this pseudo reality watchable train wreck, smoke and mirrors, faux danger, debilitating distraction into a heady conglomeration tangled and torn spool of fishing line so messed up there is no place to start to maybe straighten it out, without tossing in the towel and buying a new reel to begin anew.

Trumping all other reality shows merely by its 24/7 programming ad nauseum schedule. Regurgitated and repeated. Feeding the narcissistic nightmare beast, a daily diet of exaggerated inflated incompetent ego.

“Open spaces in shopping center walls
Middle class man middle class land
Clean enough to be a family affair
Nice place to take wide eyed child
Controlled climate temperate zones
Neat little shops all laid out
Everything by sale
By cash or plastic
Price not negotiable but payment is
Different junk man different junk
Spend some money buy some more”

“Put on blinders
Dull the senses
Who’s worth more
than money they spend?

Sky scraper buildings
Corporate corridor office suite
Executive board high finance
Big businessman suit
Not stained by sweat or blood
Using money like perfumed water

Sophistication smiles
Hide stain and decay
Realistic decisions
In columns and ledgers
Dividing profits among themselves
Spoils of war are spoils of war
Says Junk Man owner of the junk

Grafitti Man’s got something to say
Message in a scrawl message on the wall

Down with bosses
No more bosses
Something’s gotta change
Something’s gotta change”

– John Trudell

“Graffiti Man”
