everybody recommends

by delapruch

when you’re down
when you’re blue
even petula clark is out to try & get you
to do what she wants---
people that you know &
people for whom you could hardly give a fleeting fuck
are all out to cure your troubles
by suggesting things that might lift you up
suggesting things that they have done which
“could possibly do the same for you, if ya just try”---
and then there is the guilt imposed upon
when any answer besides a positive agreement
(which instills inside the recommender the feeling that they
themselves have “done good,” where they walk with their heads
a little higher, etc.)
is one which is seen as a blatant disregard for their feelings &
rather than accept you for your own person
you are often cast out as
a misanthrope
who is “getting what they deserve”
for not going with the flow &
accepting the tunes that have wooed folks for a thousand ages---
in fact,
everyone’s got an answer, a room full of em,’
for questions that you might not have even asked yet
but from whose “logical inference” & path already traveled
is “supposed to lead” to the same generic conclusions
which have already been documented
so that more people have to
think less---
how wonderful it is to live in a world
where everyone recommends to stop
living, no?
