Society

Postby james+burgundy » Mon Sep 28, 2009 3:47 pm

I wrote this on the back of a envelope while waiting for my mom to get out of the grocery store.

What is this perverse thing called society ? A madcap parody of utopia ? How can there be life in this monolithic place of death? All the life there was has been torn down,run over and cast away by the vanguard of progress. Is society truly civilized when anarchy is the new term for sanity, and to be civilized you must also be a destroyer of the sane.

I do admit I changed it up a little bit, the part where it says "vanguard of progress" I changed form "vanguard of doom".

It touches on good points, but is worded to sound cooler than they are powerful. I'm also super high right now, so I'm talking out my ass.

Here, here Warhead.

Let's put these teen whiners to good use, like when they earned their keep on the farm or as apprentices. Now they spend 22 years getting an education just enough to tell their parents to "bugger off", but not actually give back.

J+B,
Um...some of the words I didn't understand, but I found the imagery quite effective. And, um, interesting rhythmic devices which seemed to counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor of the humanity... of the poet's soul....

Nice try.

...nah, you're only worth an offhanded general tawdry comment. I have to keep back the good stuff for when I really mean it. Still, I hope if nothing else your helping more around the house.

::applause::

He's right. It's a bit deep and all, but it's really not quite worth immediate and violent appraisal. I believe Warhead used the perfect word; for however much it was profound, it will still only deserve the tawdry comments.

It uses words and phrases that sound deep. But he's not actually saying anything. There's nothing there to comment on like Bonn-o-Tron.
:trap:

It's like grabbing a bunch of long words out of the dictionary and plunking them down at random on a page.
I think agathokakological batrachomyomachia is deanthropomorphisation, except for honorificabilitudinitatibus in the quadradimensionality.

There, did I sound smart?
