To Duel or Duet
There is going to be a football game here this weekend.
A really big one.
It will be a great diversion from the weekday grind,
and the terror 24/7 world.
But you will not escape.
You will be searched at the stadium,
and perhaps even begin to suspect that the same Corporations
who are bringing you the game,
are the same corporations who profit from our wars.
During lunch today, we discussed how
Football, our football, is a perfect sport for these military times.
Fight, Fight, Fight.
Hit em again, harder harder, hit em again, harder harder.
Push them back, push them back, way back.
"The best defense is a good offense."
"Make them play on their end of the field. "
"Have a balanced attack in the air and on the ground."
The field has two sides and each side has a field general.
One is on the attack.
His artillary is the long bomb.
The goal is to smash, dominate, squash, and control the line,
until the opposition is defeated.
And the strong emerges victorious.
Last night, we went two stepping.
We danced until midnight until the full moon hung high.
We found respite from our day and diversion from our cares.
The neon signs blast out their garrish glare,
as the women twirl and the men glide,
counter clockwise around the worn dance floor,
each with their unique twist of the neck,
each with their special dance face on.
Most of the women, if not all of them, smile.
And they are big smiles.
Some of the men look like they are doing serious work.
Some just look cooly nonchalant.
The room brims with big open faces,
During these important times,
where the fate of the species is literally at stake,
there are many many ways to forget the cares of the day
and the grind of our working hours.
One, is a cultural pageant that reinforces almost everything that
we must transcend,
Dichotomy, borders, violence, aggression, and possession.
The other, the dance, is as old as the tribe itself.
It fosters cooperation, and communion,
and its synthetic dynamic movement is often healing.
One is a duel.
The duel will be on National TV.
I might turn it on,
just to see who's winning.
