I Watched ‘Welcome to California 1953’
old cars, old buildings, old fashioned clothing
the good old days.
they were better then.
better than now.
more freedom, fewer laws and restrictions.
everything’s screwed up now
thanks to all the law breaking
criminals and ass_ _ _ _ s who don’t give a
s _ _ t about anything.
thanks to them, everything is now worse.
much worse than before and it is getting that way
more and more.
I saw it coming in the 1960’s.
a wave of worseness was coming
and unfortunately, it landed.
I don’t think I’m an optimist.
I don’t wear rose colored glasses
I took them off a long time ago.
(in the trash they went when I broke them in half.)
the movie people travelled to paces like the racetrack
and other attractions where a lot of people visited
in droves and then I realized all those people who
were older at the time are all dead.
some of these places are not here anymore.
just in memory of those still alive.
most people back then have long been dead.
millions and millions of people, dead.
that’s an awful lot of caskets
lot of money to be made in dying.
(who buries those lousy money grubbing morticians? I guess another money grubbing mortician…)
they lived their lives in their own time and now
they are all gone without a trace without a whimper
and then I thought that throughout man’s history
billions and billions of people have passed on.
and, I suppose we will too.
we of course, do not like to think about that.
we will eventually be among those who have passed on.
we will be in good company and of course, bad.
life’s ups and downs.
this is one of the downs.
better enjoy our lives now
if you know what’s good for you.
before it is too late.
death is coming for us all.
you might want to watch
this movie on YouTube…
the good old days that are
in a time
I never knew
they were actually
going to be dead
