Some Notes On Our Current Predicament

by William Skink

The scramble is on.

For toilet paper?

National Guard in New York, empty basketball arenas. The sad signage put up by HR showing cough etiquette.

Too little, too late.

Capitalism cannot fathom the phrase for the greater good.

A prince in the desert started an oil war that Russia will win.

You want to pretend Joe Biden won’t be trounced by Trump?

You want to pretend we are still going to have an election?

Put away your Olympics, put away your Logjam concerts and tourist tax schemes.

Business as usual won’t be coming back any time soon.

That’s not a bad thing.

It’s time to put new ideas into practice.

Put away your Biden and tucked away Trump voodoo doll you stick pins in thinking it’s his grotesque persona to blame for all this because it’s not.

This has been a long time coming.

This will be a long-term test.

Fear makes it more difficult to think straight.

But don’t be complacent.

Your life is not their concern.
