R.I.P.


R.I.P.


Passed on
From a plenitude of pain
Onto platitudes so plain

Everyone's a saint in their eulogy
But neither lament this frail corpse
Nor glorify it unduly

Give credit where it's due
Without speaking untrue
Words twist and memory warps

Moving on
Learn from our dear departed
Lessons that shouldn't be discarded:

Any fool can prattle like common cattle
Though few grab the bull by its horns
When they're burdened with a saddle

Don't ever settle
Or be that pot calling the kettle
Black as a widow who mourns

Carry on
If one's legacy benefits all
Another shall surely come to heed the call ...

Capitalist Cult of The Car

"Buy this car to drive to work;
Drive to work to pay for this car." ~ from Hand$hake$ by Metric




Capitalist Cult of The Car


You wake up early everyday
To commute to a faraway place
Which for all intensive purposes
Could be best described as:
"The Height of Tedium".

You climb the corporate ladder
High enough to afford a new vehicle
The company cafeteria offers donuts
And co-workers congratulate you
With warm welcoming smiles.

That's how we here survive
While economies elsewhere take a dive
Feeling blue? Fill the tank up for a drive!
Another war wins us fuel to thrive
Don't think, just work - from nine to five.

Not sure whether or not evolution
Would have wanted it this way
Repetitive stress makes a fine mess
Within this vicious cycle of duress
But whatever the case, dress to impress!
