Jupiter peaks around. The Teapot’s down there above the ice.
I keep telling myself I can write whatever I feel like, but usually I don’t. It’s got me into trouble in the past.
I’m employable only because I can lift more than fifty pound. They keep me around because I can lift a lot more. Not that I’ve written anything but the truth. As I told our current MLA when he came after me, ‘what the fuck do people care what I think anyway’. I was trying to satiate him, but he saw a fight and an opportunity to crush a perceived enemy, not even really an enemy, but someone not sharing his message.
These men are a dime a dozen. Everything, especially politics, has become religion where if you can’t agree you go to war.
I should have been a roofer. Putting roofs over people’s heads is an honourable trade. I would only espouse the virtues of small town politicians who championed the most roofs, overlooking the money they received in kickbacks, much more than a roofers wage. Just guys saying yes.
It is interesting to note the small time politicians who have had the biggest impact on local communities don’t live there anymore. They were happy until they were voted out or retired. After that. . . they move. The towns; each campaign they devoted their love to, and changed in there image, in the rearview mirror once they stopped collecting. Meanwhile we stay and clean up their mess.
Hey man, I’ve seen it over and over. That’s the burden with being in any one place for a long time, I guess.
