GET YER FILTHY HANDS OFF ME DESERT
us humans are such territorial little bastards.. and, no.. I don't mean all these freaking wars we seem to like having over oil reserves or shit involving the neighbour's fence being 2 inches into your land so you decide to send 190dB of noise pollution back. or some shit involving the male human's urination practices.. (if you pee on it.. it's yours!).. no.. this is something else odd I've observed of late..
y'see.. my house is currently being invaded by all manner of annoying chattering animals.. every night for the last week or so, this retarded pack of cats love to hang around outside my bedroom window whilst I watch tv, listen to music (anything involving loud noise) and make endless retarded "MEEEEEOOOOWWWW" noises.. followed by a fingernail on the blackboard sound of "ARRRRSSSSKKCHHREEOOWWWGGSSKKSSKSKKK" as the little bastards fight each other or fuckit, I dunno have orgies outside me window or some shit.. coz apparently, what'ever crazy taste in music I have is like catnip to the little bastards.. they can't get enough of it..
of course, it may not be the music they're attracted to.. coz I've also got a rat (or maybe a whole family of them) living in the crawlspace of my roof.. every so often.. usually late at night you'll hear the little bastard(s) scurrying around up there.. maybe you might flick on the kitchen light on one night and scare one of 'em back into hiding behind the oven.. and the little fucker's are damn hard to kill too.. too smart for mousetraps, too sneaky to avoid the ratsack and obviously all those fucking cats outside me window clearly aren't doing their job catching 'em..
and it's in the midst of this zoo.. I realise just how sensitive we dumb humans ARE to anyone (or anything) encroaching upon our space.. our 21st century hygienically bubble boy sterile lemon scented space capsules.. we don't like anything fucking around in here.. and it's funny to think just outside the front door of your interior decorated made for tv queer eye makeover feng shui tomb.. there's entire ecosystems of chattering organisms scrambling to get in.. and we shut 'em all out.. why? coz dammit.. IT'S OUR FREAKING SPACE and the rest of you can just FUCK OFF!! awfully selfish when ya think about it.. and shit, the only animals we only let INTO our space are either dead and eaten (mmm.. dead animal flesh.. arrglglgll).. or we chop the testicles off 'em so they wont multiply..
and then you consider roads.. miles upon miles of asphalt crissrossing the suburbs.. extra wide in the cities.. stretched for kilometer after kilometer.. built simply to shuffle us from point A to point B with the minimum of annoyance (excluding any lunatic rock attack of course..).. these blue black grey tar coated graveyards.. if we even see but a twig of grass trying to break thru, we bring in the roadcrews and nuke 'em out've existense.. if an animal encroaches upon this territory, its roadkill.. served steaming hot as the roadside diner's "schnitzel of the day", fuckit.. you don't even wanna be a pedestrian on these things, wot with all the drunks, speeding cops, amphetamine truckdriving zombies, drag racers and psychotic grannies running a murderous smear all over 'em.. and do you ever stop to wonder how much of the earth's surface is JUST roads? these sterile zones where nothing dares live.. even us? so much space.. with such singular purpose.. move.. never stay.. our very own made-made environmental limbo..
and on these roads.. we drive our vacuum sealed cars blaring our own private soundsystems to shut the world out (or leave the windows open to invade yours).. kids in the backseat with their headphones blasting their own private ipods.. roadraging hissy fits when people cut YOU off.. dare to disagree with you.. dont vote the way you vote.. dont speak the same language.. dress the same.. dont you dare get in my fucking face.. THIS IS MY FREAKING SPACE!!! AUAUAUUAUAHHHH!! killing off all the other species on this planet (except the ones we can eat or wear), ridding the world of anything that's not us.. coz dammit.. this is MY PLANET BITCH.. AND I CAN LIVE IN A CONCRETE MACDONALDS MINIMAL MEGATROPOLIS IF I WANT TO DAMMIT!!!!
yeah.. we're such territorial little bastards aren't we.. no wonder we're so successful.. viva la humanitee!
so.. yeah.. really, I shouldn't mind so much if the neighborhood cats decide to howl outside my window (confusing me into thinking my mobile's ringing.. since the sound's so similar to 90% of my ringtones).. I shouldn't be bothered if there's a rat in me roof? isn't there room to share? can't we just get along?
narr.. fuck that.. where's me bugspray..
