Scripts

2 Aug

I would like to get my hands on the team of writers who pens these awful texts for us to follow in life as if they were Scripture–although given my thoughts on organized religion, and religion in general, the big “S” likely ought to have its home on the shelves of the Fiction section in the local branch of your (insert corporate book store name here). I imagine these insufferable scribes to be holed up in some celestial, divinely ordained office; much like those Hallmark “elite” writers who churn out hokey, anecdotal dictums commonly applied to birthdays and deaths and romantic thank-yous, by the presumably impotent populace who cannot find the right words to express itself.
Wear your hair this way.
Get married in the eyes of God properly, have babies, have grand-babies.
Buy the house.
Build the career.
Church on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Love Thy Neighbour.
Those scripts.
Those writers.
Let me get to them while I still can swing the machete with enough force to eviscerate this awful combination of high-handedness, righteousness, hypocritical condescension, and religious fidelity to natural obligations. True, we are the enforcers and enablers of these awfully-penned scripts; it is because they’re instilled in us as children, usually by conservative and God-fearing parents and guardians who see this obtuse type of education as their salvation and deliverance from Evil, and so we perpetuate these ideas passed down as tradition, when in reality they are nothing more than (at best) mediocre manuscripts disguised (and mis-labeled) as culture.
Wear proper business attire.
Serve your country.
Queue in an orderly fashion.
When does the bad writing stop?
