“Hey Shawn, why don’t you ever get political or express any of your opinions? Where do you stand on things?”(Said no one in particular)
Well, Billy, here’s the thing: if I am ever emboldened enough to say my peace, I have to be prepared to defend my position, because someone’s going to bodycheck me just for the sport of it. And you know this. Honestly, I haven’t the will to turn energy away from my many other struggles to deflect unwanted blows. See?
Also, I wasted the best years of my youth carrying the flag of countless bigger-than-me causes which couldn’t give a damn enough to even learn my name in exchange for the favor of my free labors. I shouted and fought for masters who only used me to boost their numbers. Disposable soldier. Useful idiot.
I just don’t care anymore.
So, if you want to know a thing, ask me direct, but don’t expect a struggle. Push the issue, and you’ll find a stone wall painted with the words, “Yeah. You’re right.”
