at home, at school, at our workplace
you can't escape it
it's even on tv, in movie theaters
it completely surrounds us like a sick never-ending reality show
some avoid it, some try to ignore it, some learn to accept it, and some just run away from it
they live on it
like a drug
their very own brand of morphine
it gives them a feeling like no other
entertainment at its greatest pleasure
we can all say that we hate it
but who are we kidding...
reality shows aren't successful because they're squeaky clean and innocent fun
quite the opposite really, they expose us for who we truly are
hidden under layers and layers of fake and rehearsed sincerity
and now, even the local political scene wants a chunk at the "drama cake"
there's more drama in the past 10 months(since march 2008 general election) than in the whole gossip girl, 90210, the OC, one tree hill, grey's anatomy and any other teen-drama themed tv series' combined!
sex scandals. check
riots and illegal demos. check
verbal abuse. check
lies and deception and manipulation. check
empty promises and broken ones. check
and last but not least, the ever popular money politics and bribery. check
but wait a minute, aren't the politicians - whom we ourselves voted - supposed to help the people, administrate and govern our nation and improve or quality of life?
but instead, they're wasting our tax-paying money to cause all this commotion and leaving a mess of chaos and confusion behind
oh come on,
you guys are old
i can't believe i'm saying this, but "act your age!"
and leave all the pathetic drama to us hormonally-enraged angst-driven emotionally-unstable teens (and early 20's!)
