alas babylon

whenever anybody says anything like
“this vision can only succeed if
we all get on board and do our parts”…
well, all i can hear is “this vision
is doomed to fail”. there’s *no way*
we’re all going to get on board…
we all never got on board with *anything*.
never have so far anyway. history is conflict.
and anyhow, what-you-mean-we, mister politician?

and this is true even for
solomon garfunkel on common core standards
(PDF; from the notices).

they screw you up, your uncle sam.
they ought not mean to, but they do.
