Moonlit Agony

There are few,
If any,
Things human beings love more
Than a fucking disaster.
How else can one explain
Canuck Nation?
You never see more people
Gather round anything except
When it goes terribly, terribly wrong.

I have been thinking about this
During the recent bombardment
Of anniversary hype leading up to
The century
Which now separates us
From the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
Nothing much I can do about it,
Except moan.
So moan I shall, prophetically.

Just like those twiddly societies
That re-enact medieval battles,
Fucking disasters
If there ever was such a thing,
In the future,
When we are up to our necks
In 100 billion people or more,
When Cannibalist Parties
Have taken over our legislatures,

Real life re-creations of the sinking
Of the RMS Titanic will take place.
Thousands of Mexicans and Hindoos
Will be-deck the ship and
It will be aimed into one of the last icebergs
Making its way down the Newfoundland coast
From Greenland and it will be filmed
So that we may better share
Their moonlit agony.

this will be the 19th straight year that a Canadian team has not won the cup. In that time, teams from such Hockey hotbeds as Carolina, Tampa Bay and Dallas has won the Cup.

It might be time to find a new sport.

To which I might add that the last Canadian team to win the Cup does not even want to be part of Canada most of the time. Does our hockey equipmment smell that much worse than their's?

Is competitive complaining about the fucking government a sport?
