I’m listening to a war documentary on history channel and I notice how it’s all narrated by a man and is very to the point and historical. I had the thought, “what if it were narrated by a woman and was presented with the stereotypical female perspective in one of those jokes comparing how men describe things, as opposed to women?”
“It was such a beautiful day when she woke up that morning. Her sheets we still tucked in under the mattress even though she had slept restlessly. It made her a little more proud as she was going to carry out her duties. At the same time, how could she be proud of the decision she was about to make. She had children too, and she was about to make a decision which would hurt people. How could she ever forgive herself?!! It was something that she thought long and hard about as she walked down the stairs to eat breakfast. It was such a beautiful day, and the windows were open so she could feel the warm summer’s breeze. It reminded her of a day back when she was 13 when she was playing on the swing and three men walked across the street to go to the store. One was wearing a hat, the other a suit, the other… a green coat. Oh, the fondness of her childhood swept across her face as she thought of how terrible that man with the green coat looked. Just like how terrible her own country’s uniforms looked but there was nothing she could do, despite her constant grief over the fact that the enemy would actually see an army get come off the boats wearing such a ghastly outfit. UGH!!
Could she ever forgive herself for what she was about to do. It seemed so wrong, but at the same time she felt like there she had no choice.
At this point she needed to go back to bed because she had a migraine.
Corruption, corruption, corruption.
Lies, lies, lies.
Deception, deception, deception.
Why, why, why.
How could this happen?
The first time in history!!
A government revealed of blasphemy.
Now to face reality.
Ignorance plays upon those in warmth
Substance delays what the mind contorts.
A gossip columnist with a twist on authority
Feeding cotton candy to the vast majority.
As though this is a revelation,
Our lives so significantly altered.
Truth is, just a gross inhalation,
Destroying the perfection our minds have soldered.
Respect, or admire, so as to defend their action?
No. A crime is a crime without distraction.
Benefit and uprising to overthrow a faction?
No. Just a mere instigator to incite a reaction.
The irony is, it was a liberal who distributed
Incriminating evidence about a left-sided politician.
The world will now await to see these corrupt leaders fall.
So that we can then replace them with a regime to save us all.
A regime no doubt, which will stand,
For the virtues, of the common man.
A respectable group, that will have the right plan.
Restarting the loop, we will be given a guiding hand.
Since of course a new government,
Could NEVER be as bad.
The current politician with charisma and charm,
Will now be viewed with disturb and alarm.
The accomplishments made in the past three years,
Were all lies compared to what has now been made clear.
Finally making progress on a liberal agenda.
That’s irrelevant with what will now be remembered.
A step toward healthcare and a more honorable tax,
Will lead us all to welfare with these new-found facts.
A new government will take hold.
That’s as certain as wikileaks is bold.
But it will be one of a conservative nature,
Since compared to what we can now read…let’s give them a waiver.
That will lead to more problems, since they are for business,
But look at these liberals though, and our new-found evidence!!
It’s going to continue, this vicious cycle of apathy.
Both from our leaders, and those of anonymity.
Even if a new authority was founded,
One that for all intents and purposes, seemed grounded,
It would still ripen with decay,
As greed and self-interest would pave the way.
Through dynasties, through empires,
Through revolutions of burning embers.
Human nature has taken precedence,
Altruistically, of course, through the importance…
Of an idealist’s relevance.
