“the Stray Bullet Blues” (prose)

Our Higher Education, served up as a commodity to student consumers, feeding the beast with time money and toil, the Provost CEO. Be certain not to speak truth to their power, do not Unionize, for you SHALL GET BUSTED. Quell the revolution, not stir it, is the rule of the Academy. “We are all just peasants as far as John could see.” Corporate University. Beware the State is always on the Hunt. The system is the problem, not that we cannot participate in the system. The system is corrupt, not honorable, not exceptional, and never was a dream. Patriotic Consumers, born descendants in a land fueled and formed in Genocide and Racism. The Media creates Mass Consent. Who Owns Your News Outlets? Which Corporations? In on the FIX, which is LETHAL. Our roles are not romantic. Prisoners, literally, or in our Psyche. It’s Painful to Think, Therefore Bask in Hedonist Escapism, Chose Your Happy Delusional Fantasy. Don’t Worry about Global Extinction or Atomic Destruction… anyway… Who needs Clean Air and Water? Echoes of ” I can’t breathe.. i can’t breathe.. i can’t breathe…”
