Big Smoke

'cause it's hard to see from where I'm standin'

I am thankful for…

…my students, whose friend had been shot on the way to school, destroying any faith in the system they possibly had.
…my co-workers, for teaching me what happens to campus liberals when they enthusiastically take on the real world.
…my superiors, for driving me to drink more than I did in college by administrating punitively to mask a lack of pedagogical experience.
…my union, for accepting my dues without representing me when I needed them most.
…my employers, for laying me and six others off at the beginning of the school year.
…my representatives, for running on an education platform while cutting education funds, and winning.
…my health, so that I could stay alive through this without getting bitter.

Y’know, it’s almost as sad as how GM and Ford destroyed the American cityscape to be entirely car-oriented so they’d have a massive permanent market for automobiles and STILL MANAGED TO GO BANKRUPT YOU BASTARDS YOU RUINED EVERYTHING
