On the way home this evening, I overheard several people talking about how inconvenienced they were by a few hundred dirty fucking hippies
who had the temerity to briefly remind them about the clusterfuck that started five years ago today. They had been made late to work, late to a meeting, late to dinner by protesters blocking traffic, blocking entrances, and stridently refusing to block out the images of death occurring every day in the Middle East.
These people have no idea what inconvenience
is being displaced from your home by explosives or ethnic cleansing unleashed by this ill-conceived maelstrom.Inconvenience
is never seeing a loved one again because of an idiotic land grab to claim oil wealth and geopolitical advantage.Inconvenience
is losing your limbs, your eyesight, your hearings so that the dauphin king can overcome his daddy issues.Inconvenience
is losing your life for no fucking reason at all.
The thirty minutes you had to wait in traffic doesn't mean shit
compared to the inconveniences
visited upon millions
of people because of this stupid fucking war. So stop your bitching.
