the problem with the world that we live in

the problem with the world that we live in
is that it isn’t the world that we live in
fuck, 2, 3, 4
find a job, 2, 3, 4
learn the jargon and accept your place and be accepted into a place by the people who make the tea and cakes
learn to fuck, learn when to think for yourself (rarely necessary)
be quiet in libraries and fuck in bedrooms, preferably ones that aren’t yours

the problem with the world that we live in
is that there isn’t any one satisfying problem
ooh, let’s solve it, let’s take it away, let’s crush it down,
down until there’s nothing left

the problem with the world that we live in
is that crushing is an act which repeats forever when it’s started

and it has

the problem with the world that we live in
is that it doesn’t have a face
(the world or the problem)
if it did we could victimise, anaesthetise, villain-ize
instead we do it anyway

the problem with the world that we live in
is it’s just too simple to yell
DOWN WITH!
and without any further thought
there we are
in some sickening jellied pastel world of
“we did the best we could,
it just wasn’t enough”

the problem with the world that we live in
is that it isn’t the world that we live in
