Appropriately, it was wealthy men we voted to govern us that garroted our worth. It was the banks we gave our money to protect that bought our land out from under us by declaring it worthless. It was the doctors calling me crazy when I was the only one sane. It was the mismanagement of optimism, a future stowed offshore, rising costs of living while income grew stagnant.
All the wars between,
and we’ve become a fucking magnet for rock bottom.
