Call in Sick

     The weekend is finally here!   Freedom at last!  Two whole days unchained!  What'll it be?  Childhood revisited?   A two day endless summer?   Sand...surf....sun?  Perhaps some imbibed relief from the life you have chosen?   Or has it chosen you?
     Chances are ....you work at a place that is in direct conflict with your religion. And your politics.  Yet ...eyes downcast,....you carry on.  Wearily marching forward ,  or becoming what you know to hate...in order to buy back a coupla days of freedom.
     This is America!  You are free because someone told you it is so. Free to choose the entity to which you will sacrifice your soul .  Morality sacrificed in the name of productivity. Your body and mind a sold to gods and idols you have created for yourself.
      What pieces of your soul have you sacrificed today?   Freedom ?  Have you cannibalized the reality in order to hold on to the fantasy?
       "Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like."     (Ernest Benn)
