the world (frantic)

the world (frantic)

“No, Mum. You’re not stupid. But life is unfair.”
Lisbeth SalanderThe Girl with the Dragon TattooStieg Larsson


the world was exactly as they expected
exactly as they knew it to be

and mostly not as it could have been
or should have been

spring was pretty much spring
and summer was pretty much summer

as was winter and tumbling fall

dawn was always dawn
and day was always day

as was dusk and certainly night

and while children starved
and women bled, battered and bruised

some men pondered over $5000 suits
and a different shirt and tie each day

all in all everyone frantically did everything they could
and of course they did nothing at all

the world was exactly as they expected
exactly as they knew it to be

and mostly not as it could have been
or should have been
