A future of self-reliance
    #2542077 - 04/09/04 03:07 AM (13 years, 22 days ago)

Masturbation and pure fear
Chemical elation keeps us safe in here
You're wasting your time quickly
I'm writing this rhyme bleakly
In the past is when we had fun
It never will last so I own a gun
It's all my friend's blameless fault
Getting our ends of love with salt
But paranoid whispers fuck up the math
Dopamine like whiskers block the path
Electric light is way too loud
Endless night singles out the proud
An emphasis on sexuality spotlights fear
Excluding creativity keeps us near
Fuck you
I love you
Kill tomorrow

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."

--Henry David Thoreau

Emerson wrote a famous essay on self-reliance, but I'm in more of a Thoreau mood tonight... :wink:

If eating your own shit kept you alive, would you do it?

That's a silly question. If shit kept me alive, and that was all that there was to keep me alive, then of course I'd eat it. What's more, I'd learn to enjoy it! I might even try to give a new definition to the expression, "shit eating grin!" :grin:

Life is a pretty good deal, and even when it isn't, "better the devil you know..." :wink:

Woah, I think you are boardering inane activities. But do not mind me.

I remember as a small child, we took Inane Activities in as a boarder once. Pa had gone to fight in the great war, and we needed help to pay the mortgage on the farm, so Ma took in some boarders.

I remember him well. He was a drifter, and he scared us kids. He was tall, and always dressed in a dark full length coat. My sister used to say he never took it off because it hid his wings and tail.

That was the year of the big floods. The sky was dark and full of carrion, and our dog, Old Gyp, was tied to a wagon of rain, barking at the crows. One day while walking home from school, my sister and I found a dead body down by the old mill. It was all puffed up and bloated from all the rain, so I poked it with a stick to try and deflate it a bit, and then we ran into town to get Doc Rickets. Doc said it was the drifter who lived out at our place, and that he had died of something called consumption, whatever that was...
