Apology to MW #172 (For August 24, 1997)

I just walked in from the vastness that holds our heaven and hell.
It holds those two potentials though it's history that will tell.
And not the one that's made up to satisfy the winner,
And not the social treatment kind, or the ones from born 'aginners.

History as it really was -- Calvin Coolidge was a monster.
History as it really was -- Man's integrity's impostered.
History as it really was -- The RICH would call it stealing.
History as it really was --  The poor were fed their feelings.

Unjust manipulation is the fiber of our culture.
The rules are made of gold, and the maker apes the vulture.
The winner wrote the words contrived to rake the booty in.
He's always been the victor, though, regardless he who wins.

Rebecca says it's entertainment the masses always crave.
Our Roman history legacy, infotainment's latest craze.
React to flash, and bored with facts, you rally for sensation?
But confronted with the evidence, you feel a scared deflation?

If talking just _ONE_ trace case, it should blow the whole thing up!
For the _solitary_ trace case, grind the whole mess to a halt!
For just _one_ stinking trace case -- bring whole cultures to a stop!
BE CERTAIN there are HUNDREDS that are worth some REAL salt!

We're not interested in looking while beholding implication.
If your threatened summer country homes might come to liquidation.
If the loss of precious dollars is to turn uncaring eye,
Then please consume some fecal stuff, freak out, go mad, and die.

I've heard it said that panic follows saucers in our skies.
That millions would go terror mad if all should see them fly!
Suicide would hit the ceiling -- and millions more would starve!
Well, I just flat don't buy it -- not a ribbon, pot, or shard!

Would we do this if we found some folks who'd never used a spoon?
Would we do it if we found out there were people on the moon?
I'm not concerned with those that fall in light of strange new days.
Be it son or wife or mommy, or my Dad or ME that pays!

We let our culture by with murder, and we tolerate in it
What we crush out individually, so stay mired in the shit.
On guard for serial murder when from the single person,
But unmindful when the system does it, and it's done it in _immersion_.

I'm just a soldier and a teacher and I pay more than my end.
I don't cheat Unk Sam from taxes, and I've been a loyal friend.
I don't bully, I don't lie, and I give an even break,
And I speak my mind objectively, on the level, not the make.

I eschew the stunted bunkie that likes things when they're static --
Where it's built to suit the boorish style of the skeptical fanatic.
Where ones comfort comes from life blood of those who do without.
All the trappings of their shuttered world not kept to close about.

It's rational that we are watched, using postulates of Drake.
Reported in our skies, I'm sure, reality's at stake!
Traces HAVE been left -- they go ignored, eschewed, unstudied,
But the pillars of our culture? . . .Non disclosing, soiled and

They know more than they're telling, we deserve their contribution.
This insures against complete collapse, and mass's retribution.
I want a true world based on fact -- though the heavens crack and fall
No longer hanging over me, so I'll clearly hear the call.


What call? The call of my muse, you bilious sneering skeptibunker! Who's
voice? Why, the inner one of course -- the only one I'm sure of! I can't
hear it in the clutter of your media's exhortations to burn and consume.
I can't hear it in the frothing of your Pat Robertson, or Jerry Falwell
that UFO's are agents of Satan=85(in fact, the more they froth the more I
am convinced that the INVERSE _must_ be true)! I can't hear it in YOUR
deafening silence; a silence unpunctuated by even an indirect or private
exhortation for me to shut the fuck up -- Well, except for Robert Todd,
and he hardly counts. I'll tell you what you need, fellow motes. You
need to have me investigating this full time -- I'll tell what you'd see
like you were standing there!!!

"I cleave the heavens, and soar to the infinite. What others see from
afar, I leave far behind me." - Giordano Bruno, while burning at the
fundamentalist's stake for pointing out the cracks in heaven

"I'm concerned (when all I have _ever_ been is a productive, honored
citizen), that I could be thumped by one of these superfunded agencies
(that could squash me like a bug) for constructively speaking my mind
in a _free_ society. If my fears have ANY validity, then we are not
living in that free society, and my life long DIRECT, and documented
support of it is a sham, a hypocrisy, and a tragedy."
