and when the turds speak you listen

and when they speak you swallow, try to look nice and respectable, beam a smile that gives the impression you like what you hear

you do what you're told, go ahead you must follow every cliche

and when the turds speak you will forget talent, ambition, originality and vision

open your legs (after the turds speak)

don't ever complain out loud you fool, you naive fool, follow the whores - it is the only way, the only way, no kidding

and when the turds speak you listen very carefully for the right signal, for the right time, your time that you know one day will come for you - they'll let you suck dick, eat cunt and snort lines

but, for now, you are man/woman so sit down and listen to the turds speak

Bog, I read this and thought of a 'cage'...

* curious about your loading this under 'non-fiction' 'general': I had thought initially that it was loaded under poetry...

* I read it as a woman up until the last line

* find the way that the speaker joins in with the oppression disturbing

* a dead end: it's a dark vision of life. Is there not always choice... be it better or worse (?)

* I question the speaker's authority here... 'it is the only way...' I wouldn't trust him.

Regards, Nikki

Like Miffle, I wondered about the genre of this, thought it was a poem when I first read it, then saw the category..one of those crossover pieces I guess, the repetition helps.....Reads like 'more' than a piece of prose to me, though...

I read resigned, weary, half-compliant maybe, the loss of perspective when faced by something so powerful it's overwhelming. And the way that the only 'escape' is to become even more hopeless, 'solied'?

I'd love to know a bit more about your inspiration here, if it isn't telegraphing the piece too much?
But there's power, and its very disturbing.
