Big Brother: a poem

There's so much corruption
I feel guilty voting
for politicians. The antics,
the damn crooks are gloating.

They got in our pockets,
and no they're not stopping.
They'll take what they want
and kill us with talking.

They're all plagued with distrust.
The system is broken.
The NSA, the IRS,
The Government's watching.

They've divided us all
on both sides of their lines.
To distract the masses
from their numerous crimes.

Oh thanks for asking but its just all so boring, I'm off work on sick leave (nothing too serious) and have been for 2 months I have to go back on Monday and I really, really don't want to. So I guess I just want to change jobs but I've left everything to close to going back. I work as a lab technician, mostly drawing blood among other duties, but I just feel like I don't even want to be around the public even and I don't feel like pretending to be normal. So that is mostly what I've been thinking about for 2 months and not really doing much about it. I just want to be an introvert for a little while and then get a different job where no one knows me or work from home.

So what preoccupies your mind? lol, right forum or not, I must ask.

Ha yeah, well I think you just need to stop thinking. Unfortunately, for most people that's not the case. We could use some more thinkers! I'd ask you to go into more detail, but I'm not sure if this is the right forum.

Same with highs and lows, I've been depressed off and on and having some episodes of anxiety, mostly from thinking too much, LOL.

Great, I'll have to read it soon, I bet I will. Oh I've been surviving. There's always the highs and lows, but I can't really complain. I've just been working, mostly forklift driving for one company and construction for another. Nothing glamorous. How have you been? How's the Canadian side of life?

Thanks so much! I'm glad to see you back here. I actually don't know what Info Wars is, I just like to stay up on current events. Well I just loved reading your stuff! You're a great storyteller. I hope you're still writing? I really liked your ' The Preacher and The Log House' series.
