Get a job. Go to work. Take on debt.
Afford a wife. Raise kids. Buy a house.
Divorce twice. Be a dick on Facebook,
Twitter, Instagram. Post selfies. Act
like assholes. Make more money. Buy
more crap. Pay your loans. Pay the bills.
Consume. Fuck the planet. Live under
Google’s eye. Listen to the news. Watch
TV. Stay at home. Don’t wear a mask.
Wear a mask. Go to the polls. Pay the
fine. Walk this way. Pay more taxes.
Obey the law.
Now repeat after me: I AM FREE
and bleat louder
This is where, so to speak, the heavens extend to other skies.
Here, other rules shall prevail.
This is where other stars shine brightly,
like in the Elysium of the poet.
Solemque suum, sua sidera norunt
– VIRGILE, Aeneid, book VI:641
