A Perspective

April 5, 2021

Changes

.

When you see things

In a different light

.

Recently “had” to

Pick up a package

At the facility of

One of those

Behemoth carriers

Of small packages

.

First it was amazing

To watch the “sort”

Down a conveyor belt

Out of a large trailer

Into the many waiting

Hands of the sorters

Into the many many

Burgeoning route trucks

.

Beyond its initial

Appearance of being

What it was it looked

Like a scene out of

A Las Vegas movie

In the back room

Counting the money

.

Upon later reflection

It was more like a scene

In a drug distribution

Operation of moving

Profitable product in

Again a closed room

.

If either were true

Society’a “authority”

Would be called in

To cease both “crimes”

.

One to keep the “drug”

(Buying stuff to feel good)

Out of the “addicted’s”

Hand and head “vice”

.

The other to arrest

The gross profiteers

Profiting off of a

Scourge to community’s

Health and well being

.

If in one hour they moved

A thousand packages

Averaging $15 a package

That is $15.K an hour

Just going to the middleman

Distributor corporation

.

The “problem” is unfortunately

Not the problem it is how this

Society operates as a whole

Beyond commoditized necessities

Buying stuff from people who

Make stuff so they to have

Money to buy more stuff too

.

Meanwhile not all the people

Have rooves over their heads

Or adequate food in their bellies *

.

I would not be a very good

Observationalist if I did not

Recognize that I too

Contributed to this

Planetary crime

Being there to pick-up

A package as well

.

Only to find out

It didn’t work and

Didn’t need it

In the first place

Only to turn up missing

Unable to return it

.

Side note:

.

This was occurring at

One company in a small

City in a sparsely

Populated state

To which when I first

Arrived at 4:00 o’clock

In the morning mistook

Me as an applicant

Looking for a job

.

Whisked me immediately

To a room to fill out

An application like they

Would have hired me

On the spot to start now

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

.

When you’re stepping over a homeless guy on the sidewalk…

.

Does it ever occur to you to think

.

“Wow – maybe our system doesn’t work?!”

.
