Whether you're grazing in shopping malls beneath plane crashing skies or wandering amidst bloody waves of grain and pain, swimming on the buffet beaches as a shark treats, or washing up on shores full of hypodermic needles? The fact is, we all play innocent. We all play stupid and meek. We act coy as if it is insulation from the truth, as if it will protect us from the facts: US opinion polls suck, US opinion polls will suck until Iraq is fixed, and after those US opinion polls will suck because Iraq was broke in the first place.
The fact is, we want this thing to break down... break down bad.
We need this thing to break down, we are powerful and angry and need to flex. I speak to us all, you too, you pretending that you're innocent and pristine because you eat tea and crumpets and turn your nose up at the news, doesn't taste good today, I shant watch. You are as guilty as the ones killing people over cartoons, and I speak to you who pretend to help while grifting the weak you claim to protect. The whole ball of melting wax is as liquid as sin because you ignore the problem until it raids your ATM or shows up at your back door, or your US opinion polls are down and you need votes.
But I'm not bitter about the state of affairs, or the affairs of state. It's all a joke. You can find a whole bowl full of excrement on any given day in that sewer they call cable tv, channel 168, about 3AM, buried beneath sports and funny anchor-peeps, being all slick cuz they can.. Don't hafta' know dick, can be fake as hell like an politician and laugh it all away, there aren't too many kids being blown up outside the old Brentwood bedroom door these days, not like in Iraq.
But it'll still be there, just beyond the evening news.
And that's the problem, you know. Unfortunately, reality never gets cancelled, everything else does.
Reality never goes away no matter what the opinion polls want or say, guys like Rumsfeld and Bush and Hitler go away, but they always come back again. They always come back again like wolves in sheep's clothing, but they come back again nonetheless, like a foul virus. Why should we expect them to go away? Do we think polls will change things? Do we think polls will fix things? Do we think anonymously saying something is bad will stop the death and destruction that goes on around then world? Actually, it makes me sad. The forefathers didn't take polls about whether or not the tea cost too much, they said no, let's fix it. These things don't happen anymore. No. they actually went out into the world into the Boston harbor and they spilled some tea. They mad a difference. They didn't give a rats ass about US opinion polls or Iraqi opinion polls or British opinion polls.
They actually cared about things that mattered to them, and not to people they didn't even know.
