Recently I was working with a man I’ve known for some time, he’s a hard worker, opinionated, and something of a cut up – has a big heart as well.
Several times during the course of day I noticed him hitching up his pants, at one point I said “you losing weight”? and he responded
“No, I’ve got those Indian drawers on.” An expression I’d never heard before so I responded “Indian drawers”? and he smiled and said “Yeah, you know, the kind that keep creeping up on your ass.”
Cracked me up and after catching my breath I asked ” Is that what we do, creep up on people?
“Oh yeah” he said – experts at skulking and stalking, sneaking up on people – just ask the Calvary. You’re the same way, never hear you coming then oops there you are right next to me, enough to give me the skitters at times”.
Maybe that’s true in other ways as well in today’s world, those in the political realm may not hear us coming but we are making incremental gains.
The public may not realize it but this time the issues we address involve everyone – their survival and well being as well as ours. That we would join hands with them against the common enemy of greed, disproportionate wealth, influence, and the rape of the environment.
Old animosities and suspicions may exist, but it behooves all to set them aside in the interest of common cause – we are all in the same lifeboat known as planet earth wending our way through the sea of our solar system.
An ark of sorts containing all things that live and breathe in what appears to be an otherwise as we know it lifeless Universe, if it continues to deteriorate we will all suffer the same fate.
