Recycling Satire Recycling is a familiar concept in this day and age. It is the hallmark of a clean society. They say that as an individual, one must start recycling in order to help others begin. So, if recycling starts with the individual, then the individual must start being recycled!Recycling Satire5 years ago in Humor More Like This
The organs are the first line of business to take care of. Start by cleansing the brain of all thoughts and memories, using a course-bristle brush; remember to brush hard on those difficult to reach brain folds. Next, rinse the heart in luke-warm water and Pine-Sol in order to clear it of all excess fluids and emotions. The brain and heart now belong to a new body. Immediately following these are the lungs. Make sure to get them dry and ventilated by way of hair dryer, else beware of the goopy mess to ensue. These will be filled with helium and used as balloons t

How you taunt me so.
Plump from my ideas,
With none for me to show.
Your mouth always open,
Waiting to be fed
The words that roll about
So messy in my head.
Each scrap a banquet,
Each page a tasty treat.
You grin at my failure
And swell from my defeat...
Recycled DreamsI was halfway down the second floor apartment stairs when I realized I'd left my left arm on the table.Recycled Dreams3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It's no surprise of course, for I've always had a habit of misplacing important things like keys, documents, and identification cards, but to leave one’s arm on the table is truly embarrassing. I would have run back to get it, but the bus driver is always a bit early on Tuesdays and I could already hear the distant hum of the engine making its way to me. And it's not like I really need it for work anyway. So I left it behind.
It's penguins and oranges today; my latest client is a fairly normal one. The last dreamer wanted marsupial martial arts masters in Atlantis. In space. You would think putting dreams to canvas is an easy job, and you'd be right - but truly I wonder about humanity at times. Subconscious wanderings are laid bare to my paintbrush - they get their dreams, and I don't fall apart entirely.

while the thrift shop furniture sags even harder than the day it was found and rehired
Transient fans and socks are on duty collecting what the vacuum never will
dust to gusts of cyclic grandeurs don't work in air-tight spaces
Criminal activity at the window ensues
cats wanting to be let in to prove they have a home
and a mirror that reminds me it's one more day closer
in neither and nors of direction
I can't wake you on days like this
it's against the law and so is everything
Unconsciousness is peace to the dying
and the sun is nothing but an alarm.

but he was talking trash.
Nobody would want to reuse me.
Every cell of my body was worn out.
"I can't agree with your theory", I replied,
sucking on a lifeless soft drink.
It was as flat as a dead joke delivery.
I finished it and handed him the can.
"Thanks for not littering", he smiled,
adding the can to his collection.
I looked in that black plastic bag
and saw the worn-out eyes of a thousand souls.

A new day begins.
As the hours pass it descends

Each passing minute wave-like

I shifted uncomfortably in my chair. This question always made me feel like I was on the spotlight, like at any second I was supposed to blurt out some sort of secret. Well, I mused, pretending to seriously consider it. Im good with people, especially children. I dont know why.
She smiled and patted my arm in what was obviously a maternally way. Take it to her to act like the mother, what with her super clear skin and huge boobs. Yep, Im sure many of the fathers drooled over her in their sleep. People never know why theyre good with children. Its a God given gift. Anything else?
Without even really thinking about it, I blurted out, I wont look at the moms when they drop their kids off. Oh, damn. There went another job. I lowered my eyes to my lap, feeling my face and my back suddenly grow very hot. Take it to me to be M

Claw MachineIt was a normal day at the carnival: we had ridden the roller coasters, played the hammer game, and puked on the Tilt-a-Whirl. But we hadn't seen a Claw Machine yet, which was a shame because I always win those.Claw Machine3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But then I saw one. It was filled with an assortment of toys: a Ziggy doll, Betty Boop, a Batman, a gorilla, your normal Claw Machine diet. But when I laid eyes on it, I had to have my dad give me my last two quarters. It was a Jigglypuff doll. I just had to have it; it was the cutest thing, made cuter by the two bandages on it, most likely a reference to the Recycle card.
I inserted my quarters like a pro at a football game. I stuck out my tongue as the annoying song played. I told my little brother to be quiet when he talked out of excitement. I moved my claw up, then right, and then up, then right, then I walked around the machine to assure myself. Confident of the claw's position, I hastefully pushed the button; no need to give time to myself to second-guess my self. The cl

and lack of care for any-thing
from long distance
I can't scratch through the space between us
to give you a meaningful wound.
You, who are the world and
I, who am the earth
We've got plenty to fight about
but you don't even bother to address
You dress it up
in terms like:
Can you explain to me,
what is Civilized or Necessary
about torching my forests
blowing up my mountains
and poisoning my waters?
I have shaken and
I have rolled over in my sleep and
I have sent the winds to speak with you
but it seems you've forgotten even the simple languages.
what will you do
when I finally wake up?

Burning the words into oblivion,
Destroyed and forgotten like so many things,
Useless ashes blown by fickle wind.
The words don’t matter,
They made no sense,
Inspired no minds,
Better off destroyed anyway.
Fire oh fire,
Make me forget these things,
They never should have bothered,
Maybe I’ll just try again,
Or perhaps it’s time to throw in the towel.
Keep burning now fire,
There are plenty more words to demolish,
Words of no impact,
Even you would find them boring.

And what did I see?
Me, a squirrel, up in a tree.
And from up on the branch, I looked to the road.
And what did I see?
Me, a fat little toad.
And down on the asphalt, I looked to the sky,
And what did I see?
Me, a bird, way up high.
And from up in the clouds, I looked to the sea,
And what did I spot?
Me, an old seal, dead as could be.
And from my place on the beach, where I decided to die,
I looked back at the bird, way up in the sky.
The bird looked at the toad, the toad looked to the tree,
The squirrel stared back,
The bell rang at 2:03.

Do elected politicians do our bidding, c'mon man, who are you kidding?
The recession that never seems to end, nothing at all is on the mend
Borrowing more than you lend, Africa has nothing left to spend
Do you really have nothing to suggest?
Cos this is not a love song, it's a Protest
The smack-heads on the streets are dying, the crime rate is defying
The president has another lie in, it's a drive-by and not a drive-in
HIV/ Aids is still soaring, while acid rain is still pouring
Switch off the news it's boring, it's just the World that you're ignoring
I'm singing this so that you don't forget
But this is not a love song, it's an Upset
Childhood obesity abounds, as the West gains another pound
All the fast food you can eat, careful baby, when you eat that "meat"
Waiting for more lies just like Iraq, waiting for another terror attack
The world itself has started to crack, nobody's here to watch your back
