Option Paralysis

oh, boredom,
sweet boredom
in truth I have
a veritable plethora of
activities to choose from
it’s option paralysis
is what it is. that’s what
Einstein said when first
he visited America -the West,
in a more modern consideration;
capitalism
with its many window shoppers
varied boutiques, malls,
arcades and so on
it seems quite obvious
in a flash
non-commitalism,
indecision-ism
too many choices
take the supermarket’s
milk aisle
what in God’s green Earth
was wrong
with what Nature gave us?
oh yeah, we ruined that
with over production
keeping up with sales trends
corporate funded animal farms
Dairy mills, if you will.
supposedly what’s causing
Global Warming. no shit.
more accurately
the water needed to feed
x-millions of cows/ crop irrigation
etc. plus the methane emissions
from excreta etc. if you
watched that documentary,
it sounds like Alien Conspiracies
to me
steeped in plausible rationale
exposing governmental denials
those
television
programs
should be ignored, btw,
(not the Cow.Doc., the
Alienspiracy Files etc.)
the true aim is not to expose
THE GOVT, but
to parody actual truth
with farce. the why, is obvious;
if half of everybody believes
the bullshit,
then the truth remains obscure.
they tried telling me
that Lyme disease came from NAZI’s,
and that Sasquatch/Big Foot/Yeti’s
are an alien species
god fucking christ. the cow thing
though, sounds believable
not so long ago (perhaps still,
I don’t keep track of these things)
there were more cows in Saskatchewan
than people, so maybe.

why
has my mind
retained
all this
useless
nonsense… (?)

1000+ channels of nothing
humans buying shoes
showing up at work on time
every day
and still
have enough time
to manage outlandish adventures

and we are entertained
and we escape vicariously

and we balk at the notion
of CIA mind control experiments

but how does a country
run by hundreds
prevent a populace of millions
from revolution?
