Apology to MW #199 (For November 15, 1997)

Sure, live in a castle foundationed on dust,
And live what you learned from your father.
And along with him wallow the mires of opprobrium
Though strength is found within you, even grander, even taller.

Ignatius of Loyola said it best, with _his_ betrayal.
This *leaning* cant of _now_ which you inhabit.
"Black will be called white, if Mother Church so much as wish it,"
Begins descent for all the motes that buy it.

The church, a hypo-critic, *suggests* your contribution.
They riddle, and you're and pummeled black and blue.
They don't believe themselves a one --  their strained pontifications,
But they're waiting for the work that you can do!

As you build the living world for the landed right elite=85
As you pay their share of taxes -- give them food=85
As you work to feed their meter, fill their pools, provide retreat=85
As you toil to keep their lifestyle in the groove=85

When are you respected for the fabric you help weave?
When are you allowed the splendid water?
When are you the one, at last, to get the sweet break or reprieve?
And who are _you_ -- critiquing founding fathers?

Well, I'll tell you who you are if you have the stones to listen!
You=92re the one on site who's paying all the freight!
You're the one's that's working weekends as you pull it all together.
You're the one that's working hardest, and it's _you_ who's working

You're the one that's here right now, and it's _you_ that does the
weaving --
Of that you should, so frankly, rest assured!
Cash in on that, believing! You're the one that's got real meaning,
But for you they'd do your labors -- to be sure!

So it's you who _loves_ your country when you _won't_ forgive her sins.
It's you that shows respect when you _rebuke_ her.
It's you now standing bowed enough for living all the stalls,
Then finding out your culture's an abuser!

Most of which you learned in school was nonsense and obscene.
All your cherished mores made up and contrived.
Every bit of pride you feel as real as silly smoke,
As there're millions now in misery while you live and breath and thrive.

It's you that holds the ace card in your skinny little fingers.
It's you could have the wisdom of the free.
It's you that knows the secret that begins and ends with you.
It's the freedom you have gained when you can SEE!


Sure it can reach out and crush you like a bug -- but that's the point!
If it takes the time to reach out to crush you like a bug, you _must_ ,
by *definition*, be of consequence, or it wouldn't bother. That's the
power of _you_!

What we need is a good dose of humanistic government based on
classically liberal ideals we only _think_ we now have. Redistribute
what will not cycle any other way! Respect our world! It's then we'll
meet those new folks 'cross the river.

There is a profound but ephemeral difference between shame and guilt. In
that difference are found the reasons for all our hatreds, and all our
fear. Institutions bank on that shame and guilt -- play them off one
another, and enrich themselves while using _you_ like a cheap and easy
grease. Through glazed eyes distracted by a specious non relevance made
of whole cloth by the man, you dimly see the flickering of anomalous
flying lights=85

afar, I leave far behind me." - Giordano Bruno, while burning at the
fundamentalist's stake for wondering about the lights.


Government or Social Harassment REPORT - Presently, "ZERO" Personal
HARASSMENT; however, the harassment index is infinite for each of us.
Consider the one one holding the ace card in skinny undeserving fingers.
