Wake up one morning and things aren’t the same, in fact, they’re gone forever. Pick up a newspaper on the way by the kitchen counter at home. . .and find that everything, your thoughts, your dreams, your future. . .have been irrevocably changed.
And it was all without your permission. There was nothing you could do to stop it. Your government didn’t listen. You probably didn’t vote. You were probably just trying to make it from day-to-day. And now what? For what? Went to college, got straight A’s. . got a business degree, went to Wall Street. . .or maybe you just struggled to make ends meet? And now what? For what?
But they did it. They ruined the economy. They waged wars. They ruined the environment. What chance did a young person really have in this world? Everyone else has a piece of the pie and they ain’t sharing. Not even when it’s all over.
So now, two young men, no one gives a care about. . .what are they going to do? Can they at least find some humanity between each other?
Maybe by the patio by the pool. Maybe someone has some wine and some wine glasses, a little table, a couple chairs. It’s got to make sense eventually. Right? Nothing can’t be figured out. Just give it an analysis.
I mean, it’s not like we did this to ourselves, did we? We did all the right things. We earned money. We earned lots of money, to be safe. We’re safe, right?
Man, you know, let’s have a toast. It’s not like we needed this sh*t. It’s not our fault. Heck, I’m kind of glad they did it. What do we have left to worry about now?
What’s wrong man? What, you don’t like being free? You don’t like being with me? C’mon, man. Get over it, it was bound to happen, anyway. Hey I mean–
–you probably wanted this yourself, you know? Now you can hold it in your hands.
But after a bit of drink, who wants to sit around the house? Let’s put on our suits, and go out and conquer the world! Let’s make some money, dood! Let’s “earn a living,” or rather, “earn a right to live.” So put on your suit and go out and find a job.
But you know, nothing is given to you in life. A lot is taken from you, but very little is actually given to you. That’s why you got to reach. You have to reach for the stars. You have to reach for glory. You understand? REACH FOR GLORY.
In the end, see, these young men are giving their minds to our society. Because young people today have so many opportunities, what with everyone else being out of a job and all. So, this is an ode to adults and to the world the last several generations have created. The older you are. . .the better! Now, let’s get back to doing what humans do best–Making Money and Cha$ing the Dollar!
