Changed My Mind

June 20, 2022

Though with the size of my brain
Might be considered small change
Nonetheless my view is modified

At random times with various posts
There are elusions to the notion
If not blatant and direct references
That….say…overpopulation is a problem

“You don’t have the baby
You get a lot of extra money

And, good for the environment

I know in Norway
You are all about the environment
You have a lot of stringent
Rules and regulations about recycling

Yeah! How many babies can you have?

As many as you want?

Then all the other shit…is pointless.”

– Doug Stanhope


“Too many people
causing too many
problems, not enough
love to go around.”

– Genesis

“Land of Confusion”

Key reference “not enough love to go around.”

Yet with, inexhaustive research *
(A quick one time search engine search)
Have discovered overpopulation
Has no significant signs of slowing

Therefore, if you can’t lick ’em join ’em

(Although I will not be contributing)

Mostly, just to save myself from trying
To slow or stop a runaway train

Will be advocating for pushing the train

Till it is just all

Assholes and elbows
Concrete and steel
Tornadoes and hurricanes
Floods and fires
Pavement and pileups
Murderers and peaceniks
Cesspools and cemeteries

Until excessively commoditized people
Saturate the already burdened planet
To the point of empty meaninglessness
Down the track of self annihilation

* nearly 11 billion people by 2099
More precisely Y2.1K (Time to party)

“None of us are going to get out of here alive, we might as well, have a good time. “

James Young aka JY of Styx

Will still advocate that child bearers
Have the right and option to do
With their body whatever they choose

Since slow society will not knee jerk react
To the euphemistic language of child bearers
Deciding that half the population is less than
Capable of taking care of themselves through
Misogyny disrespect via patriarchal power

After all

Child bearers sounds too much like
Gun owners without the of-men ownership
Archaic moniker once given child bearers
Wo-men fe-males…indoctrinations
That society is too quick to disregard
Using the possessive language of owning

If a gun owner can decide how many
Guns to have or to keep or get rid of, then
A child bearer ought have the same right

Gun owners have the second amendment
Child bearers have the fourteenth amendment

All of her children have already disparaged
Mother earth to the point of exhaustion
The chance of rest and rejuvenation is
Getting slimmer with each carbon footprint
Jackbooted against her carotid artery

“Her love rains down on me
As easy as the breeze
I listen to her breathing
It sounds like the waves on the sea

I was thinking all about her,
Burning with rage and desire
We were spinning into darkness
The earth was on fire

She could take it back,
She might take it back some day

So I spy on her, I lie to her,
I make promises I cannot keep
Then I hear her laughter rising,
Rising from the deep

And I make her prove her love for me,
I take all that I can take
And I push her to the limit
To see if she will break

She might take it back,
She could take it back some day

Now I have seen the warnings,
Screaming from all sides
It’s easy to ignore them and
God knows I’ve tried

All of this temptation,
It turned my faith to lies
Until I couldn’t see the danger
Or hear the rising tide

She can take it back,
She will take it back some day
She can take it back,
She will take it back some day
She can take it back,
She will take it back some day”

– Pink Floyd

“Take It Back” from The Division Bell
