Parasite

You ask why I'm turning to skin and bones
Got a parasite!
If I'm this young, why do I feel so old
Got a parasite!

Its against the law not to have a home
So better pay your rent or beg for a loan
Either way--You got another... of many parasites!

They build everything so you can't walk to there from here.
They do it for the parasites.
If you pay for a license, they've got a road to go 'round the mess.
Pay it to the parasite!

Put you to work and make you pay for it
two and tree jobs to a worker, because they won't hire for shit.
Just build more gilded fences to keep out the starving poor.
Don't let them see... the boated parasites!

They'll keep you working until your final hour.
Because corporations are the new Slave Power!
What medicine rids mankind...of such parasites?

Public Servant

You never thought that you'd be hired
But tragically the fates conspired
Or rather too many bumpkins
are too primitively wired

But now you're on the hook, it's true.
There's no recourse; who can you sue?
The gig is up, you'll be exposed.
The emperor has no clothes.

Don't dare tell us lies! You're the public servant!
Don't you patronize! You're the public servant!
It ain't gonna fly! No, public servant!
It's not a game of disguise! No, public servant!

And we ain't gonna take... No lip... from the help!
No, no, no, no... we ain't gonna take no lip from the help!

You've got a real job for once, you'd better get your sleep
Don't let us catch you up, sending late-night tweets
For disunion looms, you whiny little bitch,
Torches and pitchforks, not trumped-up bullshit!

For your sovereign will take you to task
We the people command; we won't kindly ask
We won't accept your promise of so many Acts
of Tyranny, without a Mask

Don't dare tell us lies! You're the public servant!
Don't you patronize! You're the public servant!
It ain't gonna fly! No, public servant!
It's not a game of disguise! No, public servant!

And we ain't gonna take... No lip... from the help!
No, no, no, no... we ain't gonna take no lip from the help!

Warfare and the Womb

The bumpkins go to Washington
believing that God sent them there.
Don't know much about governing,
but found a nice group for prayer

They make their superstitions
the subject of legislation
Building a cross of iron
for the whole world's subjugation

Blind guides would limit governance
to warfare and the womb.
But their shining city on the hill
is nothing but a whitewashed tomb!


What was never scripture nor science
became the central tenet that they've learned
A right to life, they protect tirelessly
only 'til the poor creature is brought to term

Their fetish for cleanliness treats
women as objects and love as hate
Can't illicit spasms privately
So it must be the domain of the state

Blind guides would limit governance
to warfare and the womb
But their shining city on the hill
is nothing but a whitewashed tomb


Blessed are the peace makers
and so they'll bomb til there's peace at last
And so they swallow the camel
even as they strain the tiny gnat

They claim moral authority
behind all they've set into motion
but the growing pile of bones
utterly refutes the notion

Blind guides would limit governance
to warfare and the womb
But their shining city on the hill
is nothing but whitewashed tomb

Turn!

Pandora's urn...
From which the darkness comes again
And how I burn...
Too cynical to call it sin
Society...
Always seemed to me as if myth
Despair I have...
Could never seem to bridge the rift

I can see that there's a chance for you
To escape the fate I've self-imposed
I know what it's like to dream
Don't let yours wilt and die like a rose

Lo! Don't turn out like me!
There's so much more that you can be
No, don't turn out like me
Don't put on chains, instead be free
Just don't turn out like me... at all!

Unceasing fire...
The reckoning is manifest
No fear of it...
It's been the path that I know best
Natural drives...
The millstone tied around my neck
Seek a new path!
For all the driven have no rest!

Lo! Don't turn out like me!
There's so much more that you can be
No, don't turn out like me
Don't put on chains, instead be free
Just don't turn out like me... at all!

Hymn for Thanatos

Whatever it takes to make the grade; put it into yourself,
because Thanatos is your friend...

Don't be afraid to work, without concern for yourself!
Thanatos is your friend...

Earn enough, so you can drive a dead sexy fast ride,
because Thanatos is your friend...

No thought of consequence; spread your seed far and wide!
Thanatos is your friend...

No need to strap in, ride bareback instead!
You're a rodeo clown on an atomic warhead!
A true patriot! So American!
One nation under Thanatos! And if you're not in, you're a Red!

You can have the greenest lawn--a symbol of your power
Without any interloping, goddamned yellow flowers

Rub it in your neighbor's face, he's your competition.
You're fulfilling capitalism's sacred mission.

And Thanatos... is oh, so pleased with you!

Your children roll around in grass doused with toxin,
but just take them to the church that the rest of the flock's in.
Take that two hour dose of banality,
a sure-fire cure for fear of reality!

Thanatos is your friend...

Curse the different folks, because of their lifestyles,
but don't question why the sheep are so fat.
You'll understand if you believe with a smile,
Thanatos just likes them like that.

He'll soon bring us home, he promises,
and the way we live--no time at all
You too can have that personal relationship,
and soon you'll hear Thanatos' call...

Because Thanatos is your friend!
Oh, yes, tell it brother!
Thanatos is your friend!
Hallelujah!
Thanatos is your friend!
The End!

Sneak Peek at the 2016 GOP Platform

Below is my prediction of what the 2016 Republican Party platform will look like.

Spoiler alert: [Foot-notes] at bottom reveal the actual source for each "plank" ;-)  Enjoy!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Personal Responsibility

"Providence weighs human beings. Those who do not pass the trials imposed by Providence, who are broken by them, are not destined by Providence for greater things. It is a natural necessity that only the strong remain after this selection."[1]


Celebrating Job-Creators

"Let no one say that the picture produced as a first impression of human civilization is the impression of its achievement as a whole. This whole edifice of civilization is in its foundations and in all its stones nothing else than the result of the creative capacity, the achievement, the intelligence, the industry, of individuals: in its greatest triumphs it represents the great crowning achievement of individual God-favored geniuses"[2]


The Importance of Prayer

 "we have a great deal to rectify before our own history and before our eternal Lord. Providence had withdrawn its protection from us. Our Volk had fallen, plunging to a depth to which a Volk has rarely fallen before. In this difficult plight we have once again learned how to pray; we have learned to respect our Lord; we have regained our faith in the virtues of a Volk, and have endeavored to be better again."[3]
 

Putting God Back in Schools

"Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith"[4]


Cultural Exceptionalism

"We, therefore, go our way into the future with the deepest belief in God. Would all we have achieved been possible had Providence not helped us? I know that the fruits of human labor are hard-won and transitory if they are not blessed by the Omnipotent. Work such as ours which has received the blessings of the Omnipotent can never again be undone by mere mortals."[5]


Family Values

"The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and co-operation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life."[6]


Enforcing Censorship

"The life of the people must be freed from the asphyxiating perfume of our modern eroticism, as it must be from unmanly and prudish refusal to face facts. In all these things the aim and the method must be governed by the thought of preserving our nation's health both in body and soul"[7]
 

Strong National Defense

"it is cheaper to arm prior to certain events than to meet these unprepared and pay tribute afterwards."[8]


The Duty To Breed

"means for preventing a birth are offered for sale in every chemist's shop... what is in practice a cessation of fecundity in millions of our best people is not regarded as an evil or an offense against the morals of this sanctimonious society; it is instead a sop to its short-sighted slackness of thought. For if it were otherwise, they would have to rack their brains and consider how to make provision for nourishing and conserving the healthy representatives of our nation, who should perform a similar service for the benefit of generations to come."[9]
