We the People

America is trying to grow up. I think. Fingers and eyes crossed on that, okay? And let’s throw in a hallelujuah and Amen too. We need everything that could be possibly good to come this way. I’m observing it all with a microscope, side eye, cock eye and with my new glasses that I got today. Lord, I’m so glad I can see without my lenses falling out.

Those things I was wearing before, I can’t tell you the number of times I’d be straight looking and talking to somebody and my lens would pop out. It was like functioning with half a brain. Everything would blur on one side. It was crazy and embarrassing, to say the least.

Anyway. It’s so interesting in these un-United States. Why do they keep calling it united? And then there’s this song called America, the Beautiful. Like, Eewwww! America is akin to an alcoholic denying that he’s an alcoholic but everybody sees how he takes real good to the bottle. Take the 12 steps, okay? Or an adulterer sitting on the witness stand saying he didn’t have sex with that woman. I don’t know. I don’t know. It has an incestuous nature as it relates to black people in this country on so many levels. The truth is so liberating but I suppose that’s not what we’re really going for. Not everybody deserves it, I suppose. Liberation, I mean.

If you kill, rob, steal or commit some other heinous crime, you certainly aren’t deserving of freedom or say, representing your government in any capacity. But I know some of them will be elected yet again. What are we doing over here? I don’t know. Just living until time expires, maybe?

You don’t really have to do better if you don’t believe in a higher power, God , Yahweh, Allah or whatever you call your God. You know, you can do whatever because you’re living for the now. No afterlife for you, buddy. If you’re cool with that, me too. For you, I mean.

Interestingly enough however, the ruling party has a set of guiding principles rooted in the protestant faith. Well, something like that. I mean, I suppose the meaning of their chosen faith has been finagled a good bit but yeah, that’s what they still call it. I won’t linger on it if you won’t. Though, as they say in the church, I’m just going to hand it over to God. It’s a mess Lord but You got this.
