Real Reality Sucks
Slack jawed minions pick their noses and watch all this unfold. Not able to comprehend anything beyond the paycheck they get or don't get, they tune in their favorite reality show and dream of team competition on warm palm clad islands with nothing but a Barlow knife and a camera crew standing by to record their triumphant destruction of the team with the Bitch everyone hates. Oh how they wish their lives were real like on TV.
With nothing to offer but sharp words, contentious hacks wearing ties and makeup line up to toss insults and unfounded accusations at each other. Lost in the love of their own words, they waste our time attempting through fear to get us on board or be run over by the bus. Hope is not relegated to the back of the bus. Hope is kicked off the bus.
And the minions suck up the fear. But then they tune in to the latest "American Idol" and for thirty minutes, their world is real again. Their world makes sense as they cry for those they loved who lost and cheer for those still contending. For in this Reality, sometimes the good guy does win.
Written in one breath so to speak with little editing, just some spelling and such. Not sure where this was hiding, but it obviously needed to be regurgitated as I am feeling slightly better now.
