Born Into This

It's Monday and I cannot get past the blues. The gods are really kicking my ass. So I'm not even going to try. I'm going to post something from Bukowski's poem Dinosauria We, brush my teeth and go to bed.
Born into this
Into hospitals which are so expensive that it's cheaper to die
Into lawyers who charge so much it's cheaper to plead guilty
Into a country where the jails are full and the madhouses closed
Into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich heroes
Born into this
The nightmare can re-commence in the morning. Hope your Monday was better than mine.


  1. “I begin to realize “The stars are words” and all the innumerable worlds in the Milky Way are words, and so is this world too. And I realize that no matter where I am, whether in a little room full of thought, or in this endless universe of stars and mountains, it’s all in my mind.”
    — Jack Kerouac, Some of the Dharma

  2. And the reason he wrote? Because we're all going to die.

  3. “All you do is head straight for the grave, a face just covers a skull awhile. Stretch that skull-cover and smile.”
    — Jack Kerouac, Visions of Cody
