William S Burroughs : Thanksgiving Prayer

by duncanr

though written 30 years ago, some would argue that – given recent events in the USA – this prayer is no less relevant now as it was back then . . .

thanks for a Continent to despoil and poison
thanks for . . .

Thanksgiving in USA

by duncanr

To an outsider, there is something deeply ironic about the USA Thanksgiving Holiday

Less than 24 hours after giving thanks for all they have in life – the important things that really matter – like family, friends, food, shelter, security – many of them act like animals, fighting to get their hands on material consumer goods they don’t have – as this compilation vid of scenes from previous Black Fridays illustrates –

There couldn’t be a more stark contrast between ‘counting your blessings’ one day and naked greed the next

Let’s hope no-one is seriously hurt this Black Friday!

The economic climate in many countries right now means folk are having to make hard choices – such as whether to spend their money on feeding their family or heating their homes, etc

This time of year, with Thankgiving, followed a month later by Xmas, is a particularly expensive time for families in the USA. One can imagine then how much it would mean to reach the checkout and be told that all your groceries were free – that someone else was buying them for you

P.S. before you get carried away by a warm glow at this demonstration of human behaviour at its best, take a look at the youtube comments on this video – as if you needed any reminder that some folk will always look for the negative in any situation !
