Language Barrier Reef

One of the things I love most
about being abroad is being surrounded
by people speaking foreign languages;
languages I don’t understand.
Every conversation seems intriguing.
There’s an endless array
of possibilities
for what is being talked about.
People seem so very interesting
when you don’t understand
what they are actually saying…

That which can’t be named

I know it seems like strange times now, but ‘corruption’ once used to be quite seriously frowned upon. Like a big deal and everything.

Now it’s not even a thing. The word doesn’t add anything that’s not already covered by ‘politics’ and ‘lobbyism’.

Politicians bought and paid for by private interests?
Yeah? So? Who else are they going to work for?
The voters?
Get a grip you hippie!
