You create the world around you (mantra of cowardice, greed and apathy)

“You create the world around you”

And plenty could go wrong
being swallowed by the distraction
of celebrities and their nonsense.

And plenty could go wrong
being swallowed
by the distraction of ‘gay marriage’
and the skin-tone of a puppet

And plenty could go wrong
being swallowed by the distraction
of your cowardice, greed and apathy…

And speaking of apathy: notice, now, that Buddhism, Yoga, Taoism, Mormonism, etc are becoming the religions-of-choice for the well-fed cowards in this culture; then, with these religions, the well-fed cowards can comfortably pretend that their cowardice and apathy is zen:

“You create the world around,
so it is their own fault,
when these Iraqi children
and these Iranian children
choose to be slaughtered,
rather than live comfortably
in suburbs of the United States.”

“They choose to be slaughtered,
rather than live safely and contently,
satisfied by tube-fed lies
about the tyranny of US foreign policy.”

This is the mantra
of the cowards of this culture,
pretending that their apathy is zen:
“You create the world around you.”
