Chile Protests

Politicians and media impressed,

it was a peaceful protest:

Marchers clanging pots and pans,

banging drums,

waving banners and flags.

Message stated,

message heard.

Peaceful protest.

Smolny, 1889

Yesterday, they sent me to an Institute For Noble Maidens.

Today, they send me to prison.

Tomorrow, to the lunatic asylum.

A million things, I’d like to say,

to make the world a better place.

… But no one’s listening …

It’s the businessmen, politicians,

bureaucrats, celebrities,

“royalties”,

and media Mafiosi

who get all the attention.

In short, it’s the people

who want to keep you down

and rob you blind,

keep you deluded and complicated,

these are the people who speak,

are heard,

understood,

and obeyed.

Today, it is decided: no more plastic bottles!

Tomorrow, you will drink from a cattle trough,

with a bell around your neck.

You think you *know*

but what you know is a version,

the vision & sound allowed to you

by those who control

the dissemination of information.

Be assured, whatever the topic,

it suits someone’s agenda.

USA

Waiting in line to be frisked, told to take my shoes off, or more.

I wait and watch.

I shake my head at the extravagance, expense and tediousness of the security measures.

Wow, welcome to the “Land of the Free”!

How did it get to be this way?

Oh, terrorism, they say.

(Boston strong and secure… or something similar…)

Yes, terrorism, I reflect, and the pieces come together

as I realize that all of this suits the state’s agenda:

power and control,

over you and me, everyday people, our souls…

they don’t care about our safety (they’d send us to war & death in a flash!)…

They only care about power and control.

And the terrorism thing is the perfect cover for them to exert over-the-top measures, to monitor and control

you, me, us.

And we let them.

Fear and bullshit rules.

I take off my shoes and do as I’m told.

(To such a state of excellence we have evolved!)

Relotius_ Jaegers Grenzer

Regardless of what your American relatives tell you,

everything, indeed, is relative:

truth, justice and the American way,

is truth, lies and compromise.

The answer to the question depends upon time, place

and who is doing the asking.

Objectivity is admirable but, alas, illusive,

and screw liberal “New York Times” hubris.

Everything is

what the powers that be

want it to be.

Chasy-slomanniy

Today, I realized that my clock is running slow.

Which is to say, my clock has been progressively slowing over time.

Losing seconds, minutes, “life”.

In effect, my clock has been regressing, whilst progressing.

Indeed, ipso facto, as such,

I am reminded, on so many levels, how

the supposedly “progressive” in actuality,

for the balance of humanity,

is regressive.

Bethsabée, by Jean-Léon Gérôme

Friends, enemies,

I don’t care what they think of me,

so long as they’re wrong.

I’m not envious of your success,

your riches are an irrelevance,

your existence meaningless.

I hate you

and your ease of being,

nonetheless,

I don’t want your things.

Under siege from every angle,

*they* demand constant fight.

I revolt

by giving up,

moving to another realm…
