oh, how they do not like it

when you throw in the towel

for their side (exhausted by the

infernal beating of one’s head

against the wall) & you join

the adversary---

funny how quickly you can be

accepted by those who obviously

got their shit together better

than the bozos whom you been

working with,

for the past bit of time---

don’t think for a second that it

will come easy &

don’t think for a second that when

you walk away, you won’t get your

tail stepped on,

when trying to pass quietly out the

door,

because they feel you

owe them something,

for all the time that you were

“allowed”

to parade in ignorance

underneath their big ol’ banner

bearing the slogans & various images

of current idiocy,

as if the whole world

would one night

fall into order,

your order,

the

new

world

order,

of which it seems everybody with a stake

in the power structure,

always is looking for an angle,

a way to manipulate the rest of us---

but this time, you were lucky,

ya got out before they dragged ya out

by your toe tag,

when you proved no longer

viable---

congrats!

 

good to have you aboard.
