I was seven years old
it was Christ Mass
From under that stinking dead pine tree
came a huge box wrapped in colorful cheap paper
Handed to me , My mind said : " OH F_CKING BOY ! THIS HAS JUST GOT TO BE THE BEST EVER PRESENT !!!!!!! "
I ripped at the paper wrap ( easy enough , I thought )
I bared the box beneath ,, plenty of tape holding that plain brown unmarked bastard together ,,,
I ripped at the tape and opened that box ,,,
to reveal yet another smaller unmarked box ,,
I tore into that one ,,,
to reveal yet another smaller obstacle ,,, a box
by this moment , I was frenzied , sweating purple drops of mixed blood and urine ,,
Hacking away at that box ,,, inside another smaller package , this , again was
an unmarked box ,,,
and so it went for another two or three layers of these stupid asshole boxes ,,
The last was a box ( again unmarked ) about the size of an Apple .
Disgusted , cynical , murder on my small egg shaped mind ,,
I looked up at the older giggling faces watching my torment ,,,
I popped that last containment open and dumped the contents out into my
there covering the life line of my left hand ,,,
was a dried Dog Turd ,,, white and scentless ,, dead in the palm of a distraught young boy .
This was ,,, how I would grow to view all figures of authority such as Politicians ,,,
They look like a God sent big gift ,,,
but when the packaging is removed ,,,
the soul is revealed to be dead dog shït .
so no longer do I get my hopes up with the promise of a better day because of
I am already very much aware of what they truly are ,,,
the same shït comes in all their packaging .
