Poetry – New Year, Same old Sh@#

happy-4701816_1280
I was going to try to write a cheery New Year’s poem…oh well, maybe next year.

“New Year, Same Old Shit”

200,000 crowns
could never satisfy
the heads of those
born unto
the spirit of entitlement.

Nor would 200,000 bodies –
as more than that
have already been
stepped over
or kicked aside
by royal feet.

    1. We are usually only given two choices and they both suck lol. As George Carlin said, “if voting made a difference, they wouldn’t let us do it”. It is easy to allow voting when you vet the candidates and make sure only yours make it to the top, especially when you own the media. Also, all our presidents are directly related to the royal european bloodlines, seems a bit odd lol. https://imjustheretomakeyouthink.com/2017/03/11/genealogy-research-reveals-that-all-u-s-presidents-are-related-to-each-other-by-bloodline/

      1. Probably true, although my family has had an extensive genealogy done and there weren’t any royals included that I remember, but I’m sure it only went so far back. Of course, if you go far enough back, everyone has to be related, at least if some of us aren’t aliens I suppose.
