Literate Chaotic / Can you hear the screaming?
« Last post by Xaz on May 20, 2016, 03:47:09 pm »
Can you hear the screaming?
The wailing or the keening?
Some screams aren't made for ears
These screams are made for you
From fears.

You can hear them when it's quiet
When you let your mind run riot
Questions bubble forth unbidden;
What? How? Why? WHY?
Focus and they all embiggen.

Thought alone can't find the answers
To these amorphous concepts
Down that path lies rising panic
The screaming just gets louder
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH




The idea for this has been rumbling around in my head for a while - I thought I wanted to do a rant for a while but I don't really have the conviction for it.

I actually wanted to do another couple of verses too but for the progression of the piece I felt that they should be more positive & about how to progress out of this state of being.. unfortunately I don't know how to do that just yet.

Also I haven't ever really written poetry before so feedback/discussion is appreciated/encouraged.

Look, those 6 asshole aliens in robes are NOT your friends.  No.  They are having you on, and you're BUYING IT, because for some reason you want to make out with a toothless old crone who is drenched in blood.  I'm not here to judge mind you, but if she's a hottie, she's NOT Eris and you are probably fucking the toaster.  Boy, won't YOU be surprised when the bath salts wear off!

A question occurs to me.

How easy is it to immigrate to Canada? Should I be starting the paperwork for that now, or can it wait for a confirmation of Trump winning the presidency?

There are too many jokes about preparing for Trump online, not enough actual advice.

Hard.  Canada is a great place to live and they don't want everyone taking advantage of that.
I'd like to go over with my girlfriend, four children, and my ailing mother ideally.

... I don't have a chance in hell of being able to plan this out properly.

That's probably not realistic. Easiest way to get in is to marry a Canadian.

OK who here designed this ad?

That nagging feeling of 'why?' deep down inside? That's just intellect fucking with you. Forget it - there is no why

Love it.

This part in particular:

...Listen to me. I can feel what you've been trained to not feel, that one little gut feeling that you have when you're a child that something is amiss here. Something else exists here that completes the puzzle. What is it? How can I explore it? Is it friendly? Something here is working mysterious forces and I want in. How do I get in?



Really speaks to me. It's been a thought that has regularly crossed my mind in the recent months - is everyone else feeling the same way I do? That nagging feeling of 'why?' deep down inside?

Thanks for sharing :fnord:

Yeah.  Sadly for him, I have about 10 times as many emails proving the exact opposite on this issue alone.  :lulz:  "So I cared so little about unauthorized guests I spent an entire night trying to match passport photos to CCTV and read 4 months worth of handovers and sign-in/out forms on this date alone?  Please, do continue." 

More importantly, I (kinda, insofar as I needed the money) cared up until about, oh, the 9th of the May.  If he wanted to pick a fight with me, he picked about the worst time ever to do it.  My plans for this summer are save money, slim down, and look for other jobs, but I can always skip straight to the third if I want.

That... wow that is something.

It almost reads like at attempt to establish a document trail for a reframing of the story which makes boss seem more favorable. Like "If I can just sneak some criticisms in there, some unrequired reminders of basic job requirements, subtly enough that I'm not called out, I can refer to it later as a pattern of issues", if the boss was actual capable of subtlety or scheming at all.

well, you know my vote.

True, and when you put it like that, I almost feel obliged.

Still, with my 5 hours of fuzzy sleep, I think I'm going to nuture this new hatred a bit.  Keep it fresh in my heart until Monday.

As long as you're fabulously wealthy they'll welcome you and your brood with open arms.
