invasion of the body snatchers

it’s all a con
trickery
trickery
controlling the masses
an all new
us vs. them
who wants fresh air?
we want fresh air
who wants the truth?
(you can’t handle the truth)
surely
someone
wants the truth?
should we discover
someone
who knows it….
they
(my first husband used to ask
“the van pattons?”
everytime i hit him with
a ‘they’)
they can easily tell
the compliants
from the rebels…
it’s as plain as the
masks
(or not)
on our faces….

this was written after a long conversation with someone who sees the world with a similar lens to mine.
it’s always nice having conversations with the choir, isn’t it?
…you see, i keep thinking about the end of invasion of the body snatchers where the survivors of the covert invasion think they have found their friend (played by donald sutherland) but as soon as their friend sees them, he points & beings alerting the others of his kind….
i keep waiting for this to happen to me.
not that i am hiding…
funny story. i posted this on instagram yesterday with a (hashtag)covidbullshit… instagram then put a link to the cdc on my post with “information” about covid….durp. i am still naive enough to be surprised by that.

so, as a friend used to tell me, “just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t actually watching you.”
also, conspiracy theories were coined as such to discredit anyone who questioned the accepted story.
just some thoughts that keep me going….

new normal my ass

my journal pages are getting less covert & more overt about my feelings on current events & current trends as i struggle to make sense of the world & my place on the fringe.

as my posts in the next few days grow more & more vocal of my dissent, i don’t expect very many people to agree with me & respect your right to a differing opinion. however, you are only allowed to comment with your contrary opinion if you have previously commented on my blog & already have a dialogue with me. otherwise, your comment will be flushed. because if you are just piping in to criticize me…well…totally not cool with me.

lemonade

i don’t like feeling
defeated
by life
i want
instead
to be one of those
elastic
people
that bad stuff
just bounces
off
as they find
the positive
go
forth
& conquer
turning their frown
upside
down
& lemons
into
lemonade
instead
i have to hunker
down
gather my resources
& wait
for the sun
to come back out.

as i stated yesterday…vague references to current events….
ironically, as politics try to cut me off from my fellow humans…my introverted ass is out of the house joining community resistance groups & looking for straight from farm sources for food as i refuse to join in to the politics of covid.
it’s that or lay on my couch & cry.
ack.
trust me, i know what i’m doing.
