Don't whine to me about your petty woes, the car that doesn't start, the faucet's incurable drip, I can't be bothered with it now! Yes, another day I would tsk-tsk and share your righteous bourgeois indignation ,muttering discontent about politics, the evils of dependence on fossil-fueled transport, the perfidy of plumbers whose every remedy is unavailing in the war of water versus washer but not today!
Today I weep for people; I cry for half the world: innocent victims of every color, every god, caught in the crossfire of the few, the proud, the greedy, who peddle their cheap philosophies for sale to the highest bidder. So sick am I of pissing matches in the sand, a new line drawn every week, every month. Every time it seems that hope might bloom in some far-flung oasis of sanity a fresh new hell gapes wide, to swallow whole the cries of those who clamor for a peaceful life no more, no less.
Tell me tomorrow about your wretched in-laws who every Christmas buy you Scotch when you drink gin, the scheming paperboy who tosses today's bad news into the rainsoaked bushes rather than upon your columned porch, and curse I will with you the inconvenient idiocy surrounding our benighted daily lives. But not today today I weep, today I mourn, today I spend in sorrow for the little people all of us yes! you and me whose fate is fodder for the few. 2005, renewed 2012 RC deWinter
