I’m a Great Big Deal

No competition can exist outside
a desire to defeat oneself, wholly,
in the coldest, logical, Buddhist terms
phases: inevitable as your hide.

As pain will go until your life affirms
success waits for those willing to be last;
a rope for ballast is a Norn twine cast.
But he’s got Jimmy Valmer spindly thighs,
she’s got pale blue old Dutch family eyes.
To entreat oneself is to surrender
to competition, service is solely
earned by strife, it is not to be tender.
Did ever affluent please themselves with-
out ill feeling? Un autre romantic myth.

saying “that’s how things are” is incredibly useless when talking about social issues because yes, we are aware that that’s how things are, and we don’t like it, that’s the whole point

congratulations on providing no useful input to the conversation

[Imagine this in all caps]: Now what kind of an attitude is that, “these things happen”? They only happen because this whole country is just full of people, who when these things happen, they just say “these things happen,” and that’s why they happen! We gotta have control of what happens to us.
