diction (nary used) : for sale

Welcome to The Imaginary Garden!
Opinion is a flitting thing,

But Truth, outlasts the Sun –

If then we cannot own them both –

Possess the oldest one –

 

    — Emily Dickinson

 

i, dedicated resignation (work hard at giving no fucks)

ii, re-invigorated consternation ( appear to give fucks but really, see i)

iii, telepathic circumvention ( give no fucks collectively)

iv, media driven assignation ( collude about the no fucks narrative)

v, consumerist proliferation ( buy the no fucks agenda. half price)

vi, political capitulation ( vote ‘give no fucks’)

vii, environmental ruination ( no need to give no fucks. nothing to see here)

  1. I wanted to be just like Kerry and choose one, some sort of favorite, you know? But, no. I’m selfish at the art of giving no fucks. So I’ll take them all. This is hysterical yumminess.

  2. Good stuff. I recently got the synopsis of that one book about giving less effs. I’m finding it so helpful! It’s no that about lack of compassion but instead about preserving my own peace, caring less about being ‘wrong’ or judged. Paul it’s so freeing. 🙂 Truth!

  3. Sadly we humans have not yet realised the truth that this Earth is not a fodder store to be raided and something else will turn up later when everything else is gone…it wont, so then it is goodbye!

  4. You’d be good at Chinese, where the same character has many meanings, depending on the inflection one uses. Costs a lot to give a fuck these days.
