One Shot to the Head

Posted by on Oct 13, 2011 in 2011, Choken Word, OccupyTogether

It will take a martyr.
It will take a bullet
For this movement
To grow.
Who will take it?
Do you know?
The corporations don’t worry
about your or me.
Or the future of this country.
Or the future of this planet.
They poison our food and water.
They buy legal contracts for their toxins
Which seep into our ground.
Eaten by our animals when found.
An endless cycle of disease goes round.

It will take a martyr.
One shot to the head
Will open the eyes of the walking dead.
They will realize this is not about politics.
This is about the future of our children.
This is about the promises we tell them.
That they can be anything they wish.
If they follow America’s check list.
Get a good education.
Work hard and find a good job.
Buy a home, save, have kids.
Teach them the values your parents did.
That if you believe and work hard
America will provide.

It will take a martyr.
Two shots and he’s blood red.
Like Milk and MLK
In his dreams he will know
That history has picked him to bestow
The weight of a country ripe for change.
A country yearning to regain
The dignity it once had.
Taken from its people by the corporate steeple.
I think of this person, once dead.
I offer my head instead.
So that my children will have the possibilities
That were once promised to me.

    The global elite run the show, to be sure. They always have.

    Looks like the gig might be up for them. The population is waking up.

    Wakey.
    Wakey.
    We won’t Takey.
    Anymore Fakey.
    Propaganda Makey.

    We are all martyrs at this point.

    Not too many of the 99% have that much to lose and are willing to take a bullet at this point.

    Our planet is toast. We can’t let anymore raping of this planet’s natural resources and murder of the innocent to happen on our watch.

    Heh. Sounds like you guys want to be measured for the body bags.

    Seriously, you and the rest of the dipsticks at these ‘Occupy’ fests are at the apex of the human animal’s climb to the top. You’ve had so many things in your lifetime that hundreds of thousands of generations of fat-headed apes have only dreamed of, yet you still feel left out? You are majorly spoiled, is what it is.

    Since you are atheists, and believe you don’t possess souls, (Bacon: “Without souls, men are but animals”) realize that you are now susceptible to the evolutionary rule that ‘the strongest will survive’. Think of the 1% you hate as being stronger than you, possessing better genes, therefore being more fit to pass to future generations proper genetic material. You, being spoiled dirty socialists and shit-for-brain useless hippies, are not so fit; so, best you not reproduce.

    Please, get yourselves ‘fixed’ as soon as possible. I think vascetomys are free down to the clinic. We’ve lots of billions of people on this planet. Don’t need your get, that’s for sure.

    I take it this was a successful poem. thank you serr8d. i measure success on reaction. apathy is the enemy. empathy is my goal. you don’t feel apathy so that’s a start.

    there seems to be so much hate in your heart that i feel sorry for you. hopefully this little rant let a bit of it out. rant on my brother. rant on.

    I’m not an atheist but i love them as well. My belief system has nothing to do with this poem, I don’t think. I’m agnostic if you were really wondering. I will pray for your soul in my own way. No dogma. Only love.

    serr8d,

    So, only atheists are susceptible to Darwinism? Or are Christians susceptible to it as well? Do you think the 1% are stronger? Working hard to achieve excess at the expense of the health of the earth and its weaker people is not something that gels with Christian beliefs. So, if you are advocating religion, I would think that you would be against the 1% as well.
    By Darwinism, I suppose they are stronger, at least for now. If the grid goes down, I think the hippies and the militias who have been learning how to self-sustain are probably going to be at the top of the genetic pile. It’s all relative to environment. Those who created this precarious situation may be undone by it.
    Don’t you find it a bit hypocritical to reject complaints on your own website, telling people to leave if they don’t like it…yet it’s fine for you to express your hatred on sites that you disagree with?
    Perhaps some socialists are dirty and spoiled, but you are hateful. Which is worse?
