Just Hanging Out

October 1, 2018

“Muslim or Christian
Mullah or Pope
Preacher or poet
Who was it wrote

Give any one species
Too much rope
And they’ll fuck it up”

– Roger Waters

.
The luxurious feeling

Of the velvet noose

Around society’s neck

While

The chair is tipping

To and fro

Back and forth

Gets wedged

In a split

On the table

Leaving us only

Slightly hanging

With a decision

To make

With a choice

Under our feet

Do we make

One last kick

Or rewrite

Or rather

Re-right the chair

Seize the opportunity

That’s been presented

First hop off the table

Right / write

The chair

Remove the

Velvet rope

Get down

And grounded

With the earth

Take a seat

Stop and think

What has led us here

How can I

Change the direction

That is accepting

That fate of

Brooks Hatlen

When it is

Just as easy

To carve

Red was here

And seek to

Experience freedom

Not the kind

We are led to believe

We have

Because

“Everybody’s got a cell phone that’ll make pancakes and rub their balls now— Way too fucking prosperous for our own good.

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

– George Carlin

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

– George Orwell  “1984”
