I like following the rise of entertainers careers while they fight to make it. I like to know everything about them, and if enough information isn’t available, then tabloids will be sufficient. I like punk rock. I like girls with weird eyes. I like drugs {But my body and mind won’t allow me to take them}. I like passion. I like things that are built well. I like innocence. I like and am grateful for the blue collar worker whose existence allows artists to not have to work at manual jobs. I like killing gluttony. I like playing my cards wrong. I like various styles of music. I like making fun of musicians whom I feel pladgerise or offend music as art by exploiting their embarassingly, pathetic versions of their work. I like to write poetry. I like to ignore others onto the punk poetry. I like vinyl. I like nature and animals. I like to swim. I like to be with my friends. I like to be by myself. I like to feel guilty for being a white, American male.
I love to sleep. I like to fill my mouth with seeds and spit them out at random as I walk. I like to taunt small, barking dogs in parked cars. I like to make people feel happy and superior in their reaction towards my appearance. I like to feel prejudice towards people who are prejudice. I like to make incisions into the belly of infants then fuck the incisions until the child dies. I like to dream that someday we will have a sense of Generational Solidarity amongst the youth of the world. I like to make insidious efforts to avoid conflict. I like to have strong opinions with nothing to back them up with besides my primal sincerity.
I like sincerity. I lack sincerity. These are not opinions, these are not words of wisdom, this is a disclaimer, a disclaimer for my lack of education, for my loss of inspiration, for my unnerving Quest for affection and my perfunctory shamefullness towards many who are of my relative age. It’s not even a poem. It’s just a Big Pile of Shit like ME.
I like to complain and do nothing to make things better. I like to blame my parents generation for coming so close to social change then giving up after a few successful efforts by the media of Government to deface the movement by using the mansons and other Hippie representatives as propaganda examples on how they were nothing but unpatriotic, communist, satani, unhuman diseases, and in turn the baby boomers become the ultimate, confirming, yuppie hypocrites a generation has ever produced.
I like to calmly and rationally discuss my views in a conformist manor even though I consider myself to the extreme left.
I like to infiltrate the mechanics of a system by posing as one of them, then slowly start the rot from the inside of the empire. I like to assassinate the lesser and greater of two evils.
I like to impeach God.
I like to Abort Christ.
I like to fuck sheep.
I like the comfort in knowing that women are generally superior and naturally less violent than men. I like the comfort in knowing that women are the only future in rock and roll. like the comfort in knowing that the Afro American invented Rock and Roll, yet has only been awarded or rewarded for their accomplishments when conforming to the white man’s standards.
I like the comfort in knowing that the Afro American has once again been the only race that has brought a new form of original music to this decade, i.e. hip hop/rap.
