In the Land of Milk and Venom
By Jerry Vilhotti
"If there is a true God He or She will compassionately say all
you bastards must go to the great poet's ninth circle of hell for you have
betrayed yourselves and all others who trusted you! Did you ever read Luis
Bunuel's words where he said: 'In any society, the artist has a responsibility.
His effectiveness is certainly limited and a writer or painter cannot change
the world, but they can keep an essential margin of nonconformity alive. Thanks
to them, the powerful can never affirm that everyone agrees with their acts.
That small difference is very important. When power feels itself
totally justified and approved, it immediately destroys whatever freedoms we
have left, and that is fascism.' You know my dear Byrom Trumpie Bush, your
great country and you voted for the clown who said he was going to make his
piggy bank great again is now in the womb of all that with no enjoyment. You
and all the phonies are being swirled down a toilet bowl but you think it's a
ride in an amusement park! And it was you who wanted to come to this city that
they call a place of light built on lies!
The global gobblers will find themselves one day in Dante's
ninth circle because these so-called leaders sold the country out while wearing
their flags and phony smiles! Don't they see they're killing the very thing
that is sustaining them?" Olivia said, while they were in the nation's capitol
on Olivia's dime, in a hotel overlooking the Potomac River; using the tone his
father "The Old Warrior" often used.
