You Fucking Idiots

You fucking idiots

You did it
Do you remember
Way back when
The 80s and 90s
Could have even been before
All you activists
Stood and shouted
Before twitter
When you actually had to
go somewhere to be heard
You were all screaming
At corporations
Wanting them to do more
For the world
You wanted them to take a stand with you
You wanted them to have
Morals
A conscious
Back when you listened to
Conflict
Or Crass
Or whatever world music
Was popular at the time
When every jackass
With a guitar
Thought they were Bob Dylan
Or heard of a guy named Woodie
Who’s machine kills fascism
And every other kind of ism
Even the ladies took part
They weren’t trying to be Joni or Joan
They wanted to be the other J
They wanted to be Jewel
“She lived in her van!” They would shout
“She made it!”
You all wanted Mcdonald’s to stop
Destroying the rain forest
You wanted the oil companies
To stop stopping the electric car
You wanted all these things
You shouted about all these things

Finally,
In 2019,
You have won.
You have been on the upswing for
A few years now,
But this victory will ring louder than all others
Paypal and Mastercard heard you
They know for years you’ve been
Wanting them to have
Morals
A conscious
So they have one
They have stopped doing business
With porn sites

Now,
All the chicks who squirt on cam
The dudes that fist themselves
The couples that bang in frame
All of them
Now they will not get their monthly incomes
You won.
You have put an end to pornography
By giving a company
Whose only job is to help people
Exchange money
A conscious
You helped them get morals

Now I’m sure
what you meant
Was that you wanted corporations
To help the homeless and the hungry
End deforestation
Save the ozone layer
Prevent climate change
Etc.
But, since a lot of you
Who used to stand up and shout
In front of buildings
Holding signs
Before twitter
Have grown up,
You have real jobs now
At major corporations
And like Bela Lugosi said,
“There is no bad publicity.”

This is the havoc
Your crap has led to.
Millions of people
Who like to fuck and jerk
In front of an invisible audience
Are now in the soup line

Do they still have soup lines?
Is pewdiepie still on youtube?
What the hell is going on?

Soon,
Every stupid company
Whose only job
should be the one they get paid for
Will have morals
At Burger King
You will be able to get an abortion.
At Wendy’s you’ll be able to
Blow up an abortion clinic
etc.

You really don’t want that

What you want is something to bitch about
What you really want is someone to blame
You should be worried about paying your rent
Or if you’ll get murdered on the way home
But for some reason
You spent years
Bitching about shit
That no one corporation has control over.

If you don’t want corporations to do things
Vote or protest with the one thing
They’ll listen to:
Your wallet
You don’t want them to drill for oil?
Stop driving places
But everyone else drives?
That’s because no one cares as much as you.

This porn thing with PayPal
Isn’t the first thing like this
They’ve done the same thing to people
Who twitter vilifies.
Cancel culture in action

This is like going into a time machine.
Back in the day, before my time
The government
Would arrest people
And fine people
For obscenity.

They’ll know it when they see it.

What’s the big deal
If some dude
Wants to lose his watch
Up his ass
And get paid for it
Good for him!
Let him do it!
If there are people
who want to pay to see that
Let them make money
Who cares?

Oh, PayPal.
Oh, Mastercard.

Things will get worse before they get better.
