The Vacant American. This writer was unsure how to categorize this editorial, because it could be a good story too.
Anyway, if you have gotten past the subtitle”Don’t Read This,” you are indeed a vacant American. That is because you questioned at one time “why”……..
Remember Ford Mustangs, Pontiac GTO’s?
Where did they go, will time let you know.
You rode “shotgun” maybe you “flipped the bird” because it made you coo
l. Now it’s want to be gangsters, that think they make the rules. The Vacant American knows that “drive by’s” are nothing new, but today’s shootings are becoming old news.
The Vacant American did not know the word no, he went to a movie
not a “Broadway Show.” The Vacant American knows that “Reality” shows suck, hell he or she would rather watch “Donald Duck.”
Now it’s blood suckers, vampires and you think thats new? In twenty or so years you will be vacant too.
You feel devoid of computers, you were too young for “Woodstock” and could not care less of what brand of shoe,
You wore your pants to your waste and a be;t buckle too.
You see some kid wearing his pants like a prisoner, and it is the Vacant American, who would like to rip those pants just right off of you.
You may have been drafted and sent to ‘nam too, your youth stolen, no regrets, but at that time you felt like your country left you. The Vacant American lost some of his friends, to cancer, to divorce, and near death by bullet.
Jesus, has said to violence to “turn your other cheek” but the Vacant American in todays world if he does that he is weak.
The Vacant American……..at “a store near you..”
The vacant American shops at stores where employees don’t know the price’s, they don’t care and just about tell you what to do. The panhandlers ironically have not changed these days, with the exception of a few that demand a specific amount of money from you. Whhy just yesterday a panhandler asked me “Sir, do you have 75 cents?” I had only a quater, and told him just about F, you.
The vacant American knows that in todays world he or she can be one step from homeless, and he or she as a vacant American can become homeless too. The Vacant American understands greed well, where its roots come from, it must be hell. The vacant American hurts and has heartburn too, but preys to the Lord for the correct “HMO” so he can get will. Sometimes this vacant American cries out to the young, “Forgive us our dear children, What have we done.?”
I’m out of gas now at 3.00 bucks a gallon for fuel, Maybe I’ll just walk without any pride, perhaps a step or two.
