watching a train wreck
have you ever heard the phrase..its like watching a train wreck in slow motion..well for the past several years deep throat and i have been watching a train wreck in slow motion. the problem with this is implied in the phrase..that is..the train wreck is inevitable..and with the passage of time we get closer and closer to the inevitable.
This old engine makes it on time,
Leaves central station bout a quarter to nine,
the train wreck we are watching..in wonderland..is one persons obsessive hate of those different from himself and that train seems to be gaining speed..
Switchmans sleeping, train hundred and two is
On the wrong track and headed for you.
when deep throat and i started writing todays blog we were willing to blame all the anger directed at a few on homophobia..which in the case of our train wreck we believe to be the over-riding cause of irrational rage..but that doesn’t totally account for the others that lend him support and direct unfounded anger at a minority. we have done some research and think the following quote to be apropos..
Mark Potok, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Intelligence Project, said. “They feel like ‘this is not the country I grew up in’ – which is not unlike what happened in Germany in the late 1920s and ’30s. They start to look for scapegoats.”
“They are lonely and have low self-esteem and feelings of rage..”
they are afraid of change..they are afraid that a new generation will occupy wonderland..that they will be left behind…that life in wonderland will go on without them..they fear change..”they are lonely and have low self-esteem and feelings of rage..”
the hate directed against a few in wonderland has gone on for years..dont believe it..ask those it has been aimed at..we could publish a list of all the outrageous acts directed against them..but choose not to.
Come round the bend, you know it’s the end,
The fireman screams and the engine just gleams…
for those that think this blog is a negative to our community..we are merely the reporters not the perpetrators..just ask yourselves what a reported hate crime would do..and trust us..the police and news media wont call us wonderland. think about living with yourself after doing nothing. you may say we are jousting at windmills..making this up..thats ok..we have our fair share of polyannas in wonderland..but there are enough that know the truth.
we could make our own diagnoses of the person who has and continues to divide this community as well as direct his anger toward a minority..it would be easy..but deep throat and i are not doctors..there are medical people in wonderland however..even a real psychiatrist that we hope reads this and thinks long and hard enough to see the problem..
Trouble with you is the trouble with me,
Got two good eyes but you still don’t see.
we write this post with heavy hearts as we watch the train uncontrollably gaining speed knowing that when the train inevitably comes off the tracks..it usually does so with dire consequence. hopefully those in wonderland..qualified to do so..can get the train back to the station.
lilly and deep throat
Trouble ahead, trouble behind,
And you know that notion just crossed my mind.
