Fantastical Scenarios

August 4, 2021

Rolling through subjective minds
Based on absolutely nothing except
Overheard concepts of the herd
Feeding on itself ouroborosly like
A never-ending nutritionless meal
Just fantasy given form through
Repetition recitation & regurgitation
To the point where real campaigns
Get started by forming groups
Of people conjuring similar images
Steeped in fear and ignorance of the
Actual benign banality of reality
Materializing into slogans and chants
Demonizing fellow space travelers
With words nuanced with (ist) & (ans)
Malignant monikers projecting hate
As ways to justify harm and disdain
Based on…you guessed it……nothing
Except differing indoctrinated beliefs
Shades of epidermis pigmentation
Height weight gender orientation $
Invisible borders drawn on paper
Creating separation where none exist
Who “owns” what and how much
Pick a fear then behave accordingly
Powered by group think devoid of power
“People are wonderful. I love individuals. I hate groups of people. I hate a group of people with a ‘common purpose’.
‘Cause pretty soon they have little hats. And armbands. And fight songs. And a list of people they’re going to visit at 3am.
So, I dislike and despise groups of people but I love individuals.
Every person you look at; you can see the universe in their eyes, if you’re really looking.”
George Carlin
