We’re Already Dead!


Do you see what I see?
Can you believe your eyes?
Take the blinders off
and don’t believe the lies.

We are living in a shithole
that needs to be destroyed.
Gather the world’s forces
let your weapons be deployed.

We’re already dead,
so get on with the show.
Don’t stop until it’s over,
destroy your mortal foe.

  1. Reminds me of Eugene Levine’s famous speech at his 1919 trial: “We Communists are all dead men on leave. Of this I am fully aware. I do not know if you will extend my leave or whether I shall have to join Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg. In any case I await your verdict with composure and inner serenity.”

    Levine was the leader of the short lived Bavarian Soviet Republic. He was executed in 1919. Liebknecht and Luxemburg were assassinated.


    1. Well, Dr. Bramhall, we’re all just sitting over here waiting around until they get around to the next city that will go bankrupt and have necessary services for survival shut off. We’re just waiting our turn. But we’re going to try as much as possible to ignore the shit until it actually knocks on our door. Some of us are thinking, “it’s a sad time in Detroit right now, but better them than me.” Others are thinking, “they deserve it, those worthless bums!” But regardless of what we believe about Detroit, we’re as doomed as Detroit is. In other words, we’re already dead.

      Thank you for stopping in. I always learn something. And I hope that you are well!
