In Lust We Trust

June 9, 2012

“A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what’s
going on.” — William S. Burroughs

Were the Borg to invade and occupy our dying planet, they’d soon find themselves underwhelmed by our inability as a species – to adapt to the frequent format changes on our local FM radio dial.

Even the Borg, it would seem…would pass on enslaving our less-than overwhelming being.

Well can I bounce, bounce a rock off your head?
Can I pronounce, pronounce you dead?
Can I bounce, bounce that rock off your head?
— 7 Year Bitch “Hip Like Junk

Assimilate us – we don’t care – we’ll fornicate ourselves to death
Assimilate us – we don’t care – solar power’s too bright
Assimilate us – we don’t care –  minimum wage and no insurance
feels alright.

Think I’d like to work forever
Edumication me – I’ll pledge my allegiance
Assimilate me
Fuck my teeth hurt

There’s white phosphorus being loaded in Port Townsend
There’s Fukushima in your fish
The Duwamish River flowed by Boeing
Poisoned FM radio stations
Salmon no longer swim

The Borg won’t assimilate us – because there’s not much left to

“A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what’s
going on.” — William S. Burroughs
