Law 39: Stir Up Waters to Catch Fish

#mylifematters

I was going to go with

#thislifematters

but #this was too impersonal

too ambiguous

it wasn’t the fact of life that matters

but that my life in particular matters

 

what am I trying to do

co-opt a bigger more important movement

coattail on the buzz

it has built

capitalize on their suffering & hard work

just to gain some pitiful attention

am I hoping to create controversy

with this spin

on an already over spun trend

with some snide spin of my own

because I think #myspinmatters

when its clear that it doesn’t

mean shit to a tree

 

I’m just another privileged guy

whose life

whose opinion

doesn’t matter

who doesn’t have a hope in hell

of stirring up anything

outside of his own little pond

so I guess

until I have something profound to say

and the money to back it up

#mylifedoesn’tmatter
