Completely Obliterating

August 25, 2020

The alleged democratic process

Of voting through misinformation

Distractions and hyperbole

As the puppet masters pull strings

On either the emotional right and left

Yanking both into controled reactions

Of a fight scene on an electric stage

With wooden swords plastic shields

Metaphorically representing useless

Arguments and counter arguments

Dressed in clashing blues and reds

Always fighting and yet never dying

Done with imperceptible wrist shakes

Finger pulls,thumb jerks and palm pushes

As the audience members become

So mesmerized they believe

In each character as being real

Therefore identify with one or the other

Completely ignoring that only one

Puppet master is in control

The one getting paid for the performance

Through taxes and consumption

.

.

“I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.”

“I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.”

“Hey, wait a minute, there’s one guy holding out both puppets!”

“Shut up! Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control.”

– Bill Hicks

.

For f@#&’s sake think before reacting

Have fun watching it is just a show

.

“Take care of yourself and take care of somebody else.”

– George Carlin
