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.

USA 2

So,

at airport security,

I refused to take my wristwatch off,

a Swatch, I know and love,

but, alas, the more you bend it

the sooner the strap will crack.

A simple thing, I told them,

an unnecessary futility.

So,

they tore my flight ticket

and took me away,

arrested.

Surely that’s not commensurate.

TV_ No Signal

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!)

Finn Air, Hilton, Hertz, etc

I am so tired,

drained and depleted,

by the gimmicks,

complications and catches,

global capitalism throws my way.

Loyalty program?

Yeah, as if!

(Thought and movement control,

totalitarianism today…)

“Doggerel!”

they exclaimed,

dismissing it,

blindly

and deliberately

missing the beauty.

… Elitist

pissing contest.

Pavlov's Dogs

 

You, me, we…

The powers that be manipulate,

we salivate,

yesterday, tomorrow,

every day,

fashionable agendas set,

targets met,

they screw us for all we’ve got

(and then some more!).

Lies, promises, delusions,

bogus stimuli,

whatever it takes

to violate

and desecrate

your

soul.

Unable to help ourselves,

we lose control,

our minds are putty.

… Suggestible,

digestible,

defenceless.

… They rape us at will.

Pavlov’s dogs.
