Pay Attention, Damn It
"The Roman Republic fell for many reasons, but three reasons are worth remembering: declining moral values and political civility at home, an overconfident and overextended military in foreign lands, and fiscal irresponsibility by the central government."
I want everyone to think for second.
I want everyone to consider how their life will change very soon.
The system is consuming itself.
It is becoming visible to even the blindest sheep.
This is not a new reality television show.
The Troubles are coming back to us and our land.
The reset button will slam down like a thunder clap.
The road to Mt. Doom is long,
and the Ring is heavy.
Not all of us are going to make it.
