It’s A Mighty Cool World

You might think that
I’m a bit of a cynic,
but I don’t really
see it that way.

Laughing at the way
things/people are
isn’t (for me, anyway)
cynicism —
it’s pragmatism.

Cynicism is a closed-off way
of viewing the world
that doesn’t allow for change –

Me,
I’m not against change.

I don’t like it a lot of times,
especially when it comes down
to:

renaming/conglomerating
corporations for profit-purposes,

having people tell me
how to think/worship/
talk/write/work out/
live my life in the
name of social order,
or somebody else’s
personal preferences,

changing the meanings
of words around for
purely mercenary motives,

calling things
‘new and improved’
when all it means is
‘no better but more expensive’ –

watching Orwellian concepts like:
“All animals are equal,
but some animals are
more equal than others “

be put into practice as if
there was not a damned
thing wrong with ’em –

being worked too hard
paid too little-
and then be expected
to just die and get
the hell out of the
way at the end
of it all –

and hearing people
talk about ‘God”
when they really
mean ‘Money’.

You know,
— stuff like that —

but I’m always hoping for the best.

Change can be a good thing.
( I keep telling myself. )

Reducing to the ridiculous
with humor and sarcasm
helps me keep perspective
when things get really weird.

And, I’m happy to say
that there are things
in this world that
can still boggle,
and toggle,
my imagination.

People can do it.

Art can do it.

Occasionally,
a discovery or
an invention can do it.

And, of course,
music can do it.

It’s a real cool world,
a really cool world.
