This might be a dark post. I apologize for that. I have to get it off my chest though. People back-stabbing each other to get a job. Corporations grinding humans into mere husks of their former selves in the endless pursuit of a buck. Death and sickness and sadness everywhere. Broken dreams and broken hearts and broken promises everywhere. I don't know how "normal" people do it. I don't understand how a man can wake up at 7 AM every weekday, shower, shave, force feed, get on a packed commuter train to a workplace where he is essentially forced to waste his time on this planet by making money for other people. Then the commute back home, either on the same stinking train or in a traffic jam listening to miserable Top 40 music and bad commercials on the radio. Exercise. Prepare and eat a nutritious dinner, then have one responsible glass of Scotch while watching TV. And do it all again the next day. Maybe a shopping trip with his wife on the weekend. I don't get it. I really don't get how normal people do it. This planet was made to punish people who were bad in their past lives. I swear I think that's true sometimes. Thank you Jeezus for drugs.
