na.

word on the street is that

the rich of the empire want to be safe & sound

when the sky falls,

when their “god” spits on humanity

breeding “hellfire,”

or when the nukes fly or the ground breaks up

like it always does in the movies---

be it the Mayan calendar bullshit or

the polar shift, etc.,

hollywood has scared even the rich & powerful into their cute

little bunkers---

no doubt, these are the same folks who are building their little

self-sufficient island/boat countries off the coasts of their former nations

in international waters,

so as to avoid undergoing the laws & oppressive conditions

that the rest of us get to enjoy.

 

having all bought themselves apocalypse apartments

which have been built in the old missile silos

still hanging around after the cold war

somewhere in the middle of kansas,

the spending of between 2 & 7 million seems to be a small

price to pay

for the ability to sit nestled 174 feet underground

with 9 feet thick walls of concrete

separating them wheat from us

chaff. 

 

guess that while one is gearing up to go &

plunder the boat/islands off the coast,

us legions & legions of

pissed-off compadres

can make a pit stop now at the silos

to get us some of the booty denied us

all of these decades since reagan.
