Because I Can

Tangled black wires on the floor in between an outlet and a machine,
We buy them, we replace them, we lose them, we abuse them, we forget about them,
Black cords of rubber on the floor wrapped around optic wire,
Why do we ignore you? Do we see your conveniences? Do we recycle you?

These instruments, these materials and tools..
A plastic container used once,
Tin and copper thrown away in bulk,
"Disposable" pens and lighters and coffee cups,
 50 year old diapers in the sea,
Our 8th continent, Great Pacific Garbage Patch,


Quick Quality of Quaterly Demand:
We want what everyone else has,
Then we want to say we had it first,
Same goes for knowing things,
And doing them,
And saying them..
And that quantifies its' quality.
"What's hot" and "What did they do now?"
Probably something outspoken that caused debates,
Or some immoral act that we all know we do anyways,
Possibly, someone decided to not be quick and react the same as the populace..
The yearly quarter is over, how much was robbed from the population this term?
"I don't know," "I don't like to talk about politics," "Every country is corrupt," "It's not my problem, I just worry about myself," "You have to live your life and be happy."

The originality of the 'Generation Me' consist majorly of making a good quick quip,
something original, easy to comprehend, and fun or maybe funny. This is due to the desolving attention spans... because major sport entertainment leagues are some of the biggest corporations that don't contribute to the economy.. and a 'terrorist' attack involving the deaths of a few people, will receive a hundred times more coverage than an magnitude 8 earthquake killing thousands. Quick quips and exaggerated stories get more shares than Akon working to light up millions of homes. These connections are for the crazies that can see, not for the seekers to go crazy about. Left vs right, myself vs others, my group vs that group, my culture vs other cultures... I vs myself enough to know there is no need to get tribal. But me, me-me, it's all about what I am going to get.

Think for others, think forever.


Hell, I may be the first to be saying this^ like this*, but, I wasn't the first to say it, or make this conscious connection... I regress.. To say, look at me, bae, you, the reader, why the fuck don't you bring your own coffee cup to Starbucks?

It's all relevant you know,
What you see and can't see,
What you do and how you do it,
The ripples you make, the ripples you get,
The positions we take, the positions we fear,
Who is to say what we can do, what do we want to do?

We want freedoms, liberties and orderly justice - just not to do anything for it.

Tangled black wires on the floor in between an outlet and a machine,
We buy them, we replace them, we lose them, we abuse them, we forget about them,
Black cords of rubber on the floor wrapped around optic wire,
Why do we ignore you? Do we see your conveniences? Do we recycle you?

"Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused."

People are things too,
We have measurable parts,
There are statistics about behavior,
The chemistry is there,
