No KeystoneXL, No NGP

The climate is heating up and so is the planet. At least, that is what they tell us. I think we all know by now who to believe, regardless of the disinformation. There is always good reason to question science because we have been wrong before, but to do nothing in favour of something is dangerous and ridiculous. Why are we so brave and proud and stupid? Why do we let a small, vocal minority of morons dictate their beliefs, which become law, to us, the silent and thoughtful majority?
How long until we stand up against this army of destructive, secretive soldiers of colonial conquistadors? They stand shoulder to shoulder with the bankers and bankrollers of the supreme leaders, our captors and dealers of drudgery, discontent and death.
They all cue up for a good dose of what killed the last guy and hope with all they've got that the sickness won't find it's way to their compromised and degraded souls.
But it will. It always does. in one way or another. The breath always gets sucked out of you in the middle of the night, or worse, when you are hiding.
Free trade agreements have all been signed in our names and all the security in the world won't keep us safe but the illusion will placate for now.
What in the hell have we become and how do we now find ourselves in this predicament?
And if you don't think you are in a predicament then I suggest you hang up the phone right now because the call is coming from inside your house,
The seriously ill and the young are the only ones who have it all figured out and then they die and get old and not in that order, the shame always takes them away, in the end.
These people have given all they have in order to stand up for you
For your children
Oh, the students and the artists and the environmentalists and the faggots and the lefties and the vegans
The media saw them all and pointed them out and then they turned the cameras off, leaving generations in the dark to figure out just what the fuck you all did while your world was being shitkicked by jocks with lobbyists and the 1%, who you bow down to and canonise on the covers of magazines you read while waiting in line to buy time.
Your phone rings all day but you have nothing to say
Car wrecks and gunshots and snowstorms and uniformed stormtroopers 
Education! you scream, as if in dream, it seems like this every day now
But the kids are still born and the paths are well worn
We have rules to make it all work
Like a scary movie or a roller coaster
It doesn't hurt
if you keep your eyes closed
