Ive looked forward to your re-appearance. Red Deathy told me much about you in our lengthy discussions, even suggesting some paralells, ironically.

Anyway...nice poem but...

: Now if youíre working a shit job
: although you have two Ph.D's

Depends what the Ph.D is in, what use is "the pre-renaissance art of Bulgarian gypsy folk" to a heavy engineering organisation, or anyone in silicon valley, or a farmer.

: Blame it on human nature
: That arbiter of behavior;

The whole idea that people can live in socialism is utterly dependant upon those people deciding to do it, absolutely believing in it, absolutely following the 'rules' (no hoarding, no power, no discrimatory choice in disposal of ability/productivity) and doing so every day from then on. As soon as a significant number of people break with it, the system collapses. All 'systems' require the sanction of an overwhelming majority. Now ask again in this light.

: Now if your children dodge bullets
: everyday when they're at school
: Donít protest the gun lobby
: 'cause money is the golden rule;

coz if guns were banned they'd all vanish would they? hmmm.

anyway, jolly good!
