Weekend Prescription

May 29, 2021

I do not prescribe to the
Mass indoctrinated notion
That annually society honors
People who kill people
Which then filters itself
Into the entire year as a
Thoughtless mindless cliché
Of “Thank a vet”
Just to be clear
My uncle and my best friend
Were Marines
For that was their * “calling”
My uncle’s calling
To my best perception / understanding
(He’s dead now)
Is that he was an unruly child
So, since he had unfit parents
They (yes, grandpa and grandma)
Sent him off to military school
You know “military school”
Where sergeants can take that
Unfettered rambunctious energy
Focus it into dictated discipline
To follow orders unquestioningly
So instead of getting into fights
“Disobeying” authority (parents)
Society’s prescription is to
Take that wild free spirit
Make it into a commanded killer
(Wouldn’t want to teach the little #ucker
To paint or create and build something)
Or as I like to call it
A post natal out of the womb
Abortion doctor
Anybody else see this correlation?
Man, am I getting off my own track
My best friend’s * “calling” was
To my best perception / understanding
Being a Marine
Due to the daily weekly
Daddy discipline of a detached father
Who was also a Marine
Into living with the nightly nightmares
Of the faces of the people he killed
At……the government’s direction
And I nearly joined as well
Except I’m a big pussy who
Doesn’t want to kill people
Or see people killed
Certainly not at the behest
Of an untrustworthy authority
Who would be deciding who it is
I might be killing
(It would be illegal if I chose
Yet, “patriotic” if they choose
I am so confused over that
Murderously fine line)
Because perhaps the “enemy” might
Be on the wrong land at the wrong time
With a resource under their feet
That some criminal corporation
Tells the government in order to
Get this resource
(oil, lanthanum, cobalt, tungsten)
Even cheaper than just “buying” it
Needs some mercenaries to
Occupy the land and kill civilians
Ooops I meant “neutralize”
So they can process it
Into an energy source
However, if the masses understood
This process of acquisition
They might object and find a
Peaceful solution (#uck that)
“That’s” too expensive
Best sell that notion under
The guise of “freedom” and “democracy”
“Flag waving” “truth” (HA) and “justice”
Demonizing and dehumanizing people
So murder can be justified
With false pretenses
Or just be happy they get
A three day weekend
To unwind from the grind
(A furlough from the “man”)
Get drunk and eat excess
Slaughtered cows and pigs
Geez, I wonder why we are
Always so bloodthirsty????
“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

* Calling

“Everyone who joined the military, joined the military cause they kinda want to go kill other people.
Right? And that’s good. That’s your instinct. Your instinct is your true God, follow it. If you just want to fucking kill someone, there’s a place for it.
Go to the military. As long as people who kinda want to go kill other people are going to kill other people who kinda wanna go to kill other people, you’re killing all the right people, and opening up all the best parking spaces.”
– Doug Stanhope
“Dated” yet relevant
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.
I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in.
I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912.
I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.
Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
