ravings, rantings and ramblings
This is a post gifted to me by The Capitalist Sage who witnessed today’s vile and absolutely unnecessary play with a certain post of mine. Thank you Capitalist Sage!
Opinion died this afternoon. Homicide. Or maybe not. Suicide?
The (moral) police pronounced ‘death by hanging’, while the public thought stoning as per rituals would be suitable. In the end, there was death, away from the belligerent crowd banging on its door. Death came quietly, peacefully and humbly.
In a quiet corner, under dark curtains, Opinion undressed.
It freed itself from the chains of intellect, ego, belief and experience.
It let out the last guffaw. One loud laughter of hysteria and sarcasm.
It opened its closed fist and spread its hidden wings. The window opened ajar. Opinion stepped on the sill , carefully, with the last remaining trepidation of a living being. And then it closed its eyes , smiled and jumped.
But the gravity didn’t work on Opinion. The wise say it never does.
So the damned Opinion , now freed by death, floats around in the air and once in a while clings to unknown people, in hope of being embraced.
Poor old Opinion.
Opinion, RIF – Rest in Flight.
