What if everything as you know it was suddenly gone; the people, the places~like the park you used to play in or the shortcut you always take, Moms, Dads, siblings, friends~gone, the local 7~11 where you bought your smokes or shared a Slurpee~gone, the beats you shook your hips to and the soundtracks to your life~no more to be heard, all the bands you know, all the movie stars, the envied sports athletes with their six figure plus salaries and commercial contracts suddenly disappeared, televisions, all your EVO's and Blackberry's, and computers~ null and void, subscriptions, prescriptions, every field of marijuana, POOF!!! Your faithful dog, your unfaithful lover, the one person in life that really rocks your world~erased (that unfaithful lover~you're still in love if you're keeping them around), all the breweries, no more drive thrus~no Taco Bells. No grocery store left standing, no more traffic lights, no schools, no sidewalks, no streets, no cars, none of the familiar trees that line the paths you walk, the big cracks in the sidewalk that you jumped with your board, homes, neighbors, not even your pet snake Reggie exists. Your favorite spot to toke or contemplate life or read a book~eradicated, permanent altering of sunrise and sunset never to look the same again, no more waterfalls or rivers, no fresh air, no birds singing or flying, the laughter of children~~SILENCED!!! But there is a faint crying, sounding like a din in the distance. The few remaining, because there is always somebody left behind, someone to write the annuls of history. "WHY" was all they wrote. "WHY" was the only form of expression left, because their minds were blown.
.......All of this creative beauty that we all take part in every moment of our life~STOLEN as if it didn't matter. For beyond all reason~grew the greed of this world; all the selfish deceipt, all the consecrated lies became the death of us all. We became so overly distracted with the technology implanted in our homes and lives; they stealthily encouraged us with nary a prodding. We bought into it like 2 for 1 specials with a guaranty~THAT WE'D LIKE IT!!!
And OH do we like our technology!!! Bottom line~they get to do what they want right in front of our very eyes~the eyes that they put eyedrops in from our moment of birth. We see what they want us to see 'cause it's easier. We do our jobs 9 to 5 and we go home and get distracted because nobody wants to think about the true circumstances of their lives~it's just too scary. That's where the blessed distractions come in, well at least that's what we're led to believe~curses disguised as blessings. Until we find out too late or we don't find out at all~'cause you're GONE or you're LEFT CRYING.......So the question remains~WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE AFTER THEY DROP THEIR BOMBS?!!!
