Rouget de Lisle

I’m sorry, I didn’t realize,

liberty, egality and fraternity

were reserved for “citizens”.

Alas, bourgeois nationalism,

and warmongering paternalism,

is not in my blood.

Who, I ask, is impure?

Black Hole

What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,

in an sense, may be true,

but does it make us live any longer?

In yoga, it is said,

the body only has so many breaths to breathe.

Stress imposed,

complications, problems,

constant bombardment of shit,

in the long-run,

does not help anyone.

Jung 2

The expensive, scientifically proven moisturizer, anti-aging formula, works wonders:

it makes 16-year-old pretty girl models, look something like 16-year-old airbrushed young women.

Go get some today, at selected stores, locally.

Buy the dream.

VR 5G, Nokia Ozo

Escape, connect, or both?

Tomorrow, they imply, we can have everything,

virtually!

Modern times, expensive toys,

gimmicks, delusions, ploys,

your lack of imagination is a plus,

as they foster the illusion of choice,

*someone* is pressing our buttons.

… This does not augur well.

HUAC

Dream or awake, I’m not sure,

but that episode of Law & Order SVU, season 72,

seemed familiar,

the scenario similar to NCIS season 48,

episode nine.

Perhaps I’m mistaken,

or have been hallucinating,

after all, I also vividly remember seeing

bizarre, updated (second-rate) versions of

MacGyver, Magnum PI and Knightrider.

… And, if they could, they would

be electing Ronald Reagan President again!

Seeing and being aware of,

I feel no desire to partake.

So, I change the channel

and am blown away by the utter garbage:

Brand new, award winning, tawdry *shit*.

Putrid.

I apologize: now I see the appeal of never-ending golden series

and remakes from “olden” times.

… Come back *original* MacGyver, agent of peace.

TVs, Old-Stlye & Green Screens

She obsesses over how the female body is portrayed,

she’s a mother, she worries about her daughters.

“Television,” the Producer says definitively,

“Should be a reflection of real life.”

Really? I ask,

Who would watch that?

… Or, conversely, if TV does reflect “real life”,

what a *really* messed up world we live in!

Either way: how sad.
