Useless Complaining

What the hell is up with people watching this Big Brother Africa crap?

Is it really that interesting watching a group of men and women doing strange mating ritual dances and saying things to each other that constantly proves that their intellect is slipping? What does it say about the viewers? Those people that sit and watch the show with their mouths wide open, passing comments about this one saying that and the size of this other ones that.

I ask these pressing questions because I am tired of being subjected to this crap in my house. Whenever my father turns on the television he goes straight to this bullshit program. Yes I do still live at home – this is the plight of many young teachers in South Africa, we don’t get paid enough to move out, instead we stay at home plotting of ways to leave home while being made to watch garbage.

Who came up with this program? Why are they allowed to keep showing it? Why is the seriousness of George Orwell’s work being turned into a television program? When will this end?

They attacked lastnight

They burst into the room in a hail of fire

Destroyed all that was ours

and all that used to be theirs

They invaded our lives lastnight

They erupted into our rooms

Spoke words that made no sense to children

Spoke words that made no sense to me

Vox Populi! They screamed,

We’re doing this for the people! They swore,

They killed the life in my house

Did you fuckers forget that I am people too?

Fuck your revolution! It’s nothing but a selfish lie,

you’ll become just like all the others

You’ll be Stalin, Castro, Mugabe and Zuma

There’s no true revolution

No true communism

It’s all human greed

All good ideas gone bad

Did you forget Che?

Is he the symbol of capatilism today?

Or did Che forget himself?


This is how

Burn the holy book of another faith
This is how we teach love
This is how we teach acceptance
This is how we praise God?

Burn yet another holy book
This is how we teach forgiveness
This is how we teach peace
This is how we praise a loving God?

BURN BURN BURN
In the name of God?
In the name of love?
In the name of SELF.


Breaks

He lies on his bed
waiting for the rain
but the sky never breaks

He walks outside
smelling the promise of rain
but the sky never breaks

He lies on the dirt
with his mouth open wide
but the sky never breaks

He beats at a rock
again and again
but the rock never breaks

Nothing ever breaks…


TGIF?

Awake and embrace the new day…
Stomachache, phone work
Stay home, moan and groan
ugh…
