I have nothing to say tonight,
nothing new to report.
The world has gone batshit crazy,
that’s not really new.
It’s just more obvious now;
50,000 thousand truckers gathered at the capitol in Canada yesterday.
The longest convoy of trucks ever recorded.
supporting their protesting truckers,
in 50 below temperatures
and cheered them on.
I swear a few months ago,
this prime minister guy,
was calling these same truckers
the heroes of the pandemic??
Well he threw them under the bus today.
He said they no longer represent Canada,
or some bullshit like that.
Countries are on the verge of war
America will go to war too.
We cannot jump from a pandemic
right into a war!
Are we fucking stupid?
Hasn’t it been enough?
Isn’t this division among us
played out by now??
there might be war in the east too.
Two big time players,
slugging it out,
while the poor
the innocent die.
While children starve
While supply chains get wrecked
While truckers gather to protest their government
While Australia holds their people prisoner
While North Korea keeps doing North Korean things
While the shitshow in Afghanistan continues
While The Cartel keeps running mexico
While kids keep overdosing on Fentanyl
We sit back,
watching our T.V. shows and movies,
while scrolling through our phones,
Ask these people,
do they know what’s going on??!
Do they see this world??
How do they keep going on their vacations??
sipping cocktails on a beach,
pretending like they don’t have a sense
that something is horribly
So like I said,
nothing really new to report.
Just the same old story
What a boring poet I am.
