To Sander’s house, we go

Over the river, and through the wood,
To Sander’s house, we go;
he knows the way, he’s carried the weight
and the others were paid not to go.

Over the river, and through the wood,
to Sander’s house away!
We would not stop for flip or flop,
for ’tis the People’s Day

Over the river, and through the wood—
oh, how the establishment loves to blow
They sting their foes and sell their souls
as above the fold, he goes.

Over the river, and through the wood—
and straight through the White House gate,
The progress they say is extremely slow,
to us, there’s no time to wait!

Over the river, and through the wood—
When Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, “O, dear, the children are here,
bring a pie for everyone.”

Over the river, and through the wood—
now, Sander’s polices I spy!
Hurrah for he won and corruption’s on the run?
Hurrah the day is nigh!

Don’t Fudge It Up

Though it might be uncomfortable to hear, the truth is that we’re the building blocks for the imaginations of generations thousands of years from now. All we have to do is not fudge it up.
Every generation before us has believed that they were living in unprecedented times but, come on, the information age we now find ourselves in is off the charts. And what we do in this era will determine whether there’s a future, or not.
The Earth’s continents are slowly grinding towards one another, the Moon’s drifting away, rising global temperatures, viral pathogens, oh yeah, and let’s not forget we’re revolving around a giant nuclear-powered star. Yet, here we are still unable to come together to paint the big picture.
Should we let corporations dictate the future that they’re going to lead or, will we lay the ground word for what they will need?

Humans & The Boiling Water

Frogs cannot be able to be slowly boiled alive, but clearly, we can. What we’re allowing to happen now, is going to affect the lives of generations, long after we’ve gone. It’s like we’re creating the backstory of some dark, dystopian film, in which a corrupt, corporatized government cares more about wealth and power than the lives of its citizens. But, since the special effects, the reality of that future isn’t seen yet, we can’t see it unfolding.
Each generation has believed their time to be exceptional and, where we are today is a testament to that. However, the interconnectivity we now share makes our’s truly extraordinary. At no point have the tools for change been so readily available to the masses. But, these same tools are also available to corporations, warmongers, or those who seek only to cause chaos. They might’ve been behind on the internet and social media before, but they’ve caught up now, and their pockets are deep.
