“THE MATRIX: REVISITED, RELOADED, RECONSIDERED!” a poem. a.k.a.: “The Matrix Is Never User Friendly, Even If You Are A Nerd!” Sept. 29, 2018 (Saturday)Mystic Poet ~
So! You wanna believe in souls? Well, that’s OK, mate,
But-souls-may-have-limits-too-my-Friend – Yet-experiences-can-be-great!
So, IF you want integrity – and indi-vidu-a-lity – then WELCOME to sweet Terra,
Where you can experience-and-learn-about Pain! Pleasure! &-a-aloe vera,
But wait ‘til you mind joins The ACT!
And brings into view Mental Distress! Now, there’s (pause) a torturous “rack,”
To-stretch-your-body-mind-soul (?) and make you scream out,
With over-stimula – So your whole being can pout!
When the mind has joined in, things can be so much “worse,”
Than dying – and – just having to ride – in a hearse!
Compound Interest! Doubts-fears-confusion!-to-the-point-where-you’ll-break,
And then you-can-have doctors (pause) offer-pills you can take,
Or, perhaps, a lobotomy – to avoid so much strain!
This lifetime’s “The Right Time:” Humility to gain!
For, as we do suffer, in this fine Human Race,
Please-never-lose-sight of the fact – That THIS-IS – THE PLACE,
That angels avoid – AND – most demons as well!!!
So, if you believe all these stories – like the ones about Hell,
Just consider – that-possibly – This ISN’T The End,
And that this “be-all” of existence – and pain’s NOT your friend.
It may be just a tool – and, when you’ve had enough,
Why-not-just give This World “the finger!” It may-not be so tough!
You-know, IF you hang around, you might expect suffering to continue,
But there may be more appetizing dishes! on some other menu!
Just take this-here place – as a sorta bad dream –
You can clean it A BIT – to-give-it a nice sheen,
BUT don’t let it rule you – yea! give it its “due:”
It’s MOSTLY-about sunburns, heartaches and poo!
And, if you think this is too negative, just wait ya a bit,
And The World-might-eventually – let-you-suck-on-its-teat!
But, if the milk’s soured, you shouldn’t be surprised,
THIS WORLD OF APPEARANCES – likes-to PLAY TRICKS –
WITH OUR EYES!*
- and everything else for that matter! 🙂
