The Fence (Or Is It “The Wall”?)

Posted: 2016-05-31 in Bleak, Blick!, Да, я понимаю, Fuck The Wall!, Thoughts For The Day

On one side of the fence you have the easy-going, modern lifestyle, the people go to work, they have plenty of time and energy left over to socialize with their many friends, they are young and already homeowners (their parents bankrolled the mortgage on the home they acquired, cut-priced, after a soldier died), they don’t waste time working the garden or washing their cars, but still things grow and life is peachy. They get all the breaks. The present and future is theirs.

 

On the other side of the fence, rotted and wind-battered, you have the flip-side dead-end of the American dream – life sucks and then the people die. They believe in God and try to do the right thing, they want to make the world a better place but, sensitive, they get chewed up and spat out. They do all chores they can. They work from dawn to dusk and into the night, and still it’s never enough. They are beset by endless complications and catches. They are running to stand still. They live on energy drinks and alcohol. They have no hope in tomorrow, that things will be better. They get all the heartbreaks. Their present and future, there’s a brick wall looming, sooner or later, a calamitous collision and the end is nigh, tonight, tomorrow, who knows?
