The way It is

The way It is

A Poem by theunionisloud

Bliss is the ignorant cat;
the one who stays in its bag and avoids a murderous confrontation with curiosity. 
there's only so much you can say before 
you wish you hadn't. 

Britney Spears doesn't vote in the primaries
and CEOs don't know a damned thing about
design or engineering or humanity.

and cats still paw at balls of yarn in mechanical euphoria.

Witty and intriguing. A unique perspective regarding the norms of society. Nice piece of writing. :)

...and the bulk of humanity and media pundits claw, and paw, dig and scratch...right alongside them all...

the truth is out there.... and now you've extolled it in a finely distilled form. You can definitely say all of that again, and amen.

Doll, you are f*****g gifted. Sorry for the french but hey, where would the careers of Samuel L. Jackson and Joe Pesci ever be without it? Right?

Anyhow, you have really grown since I last read you. You seem to be using more concise, concrete images and expressions as opposed to heavily abstracted wordplay (Not that there is anything wrong with the latter)

But what makes this great art is you do what every great, real artist does. You take the words that the system taught you and turn it around and use it against the same system with beautiful/insane results.

and cats still paw at balls of yarn in mechanical euphoria.

this was a brilliant last line. I normally don't use the B word on here.
