The unwisdom of age - The Nine Suns

They say age brings wisdom…but is it really just fear and old prejudice masquerading as knowledge?


Don’t quit your job, be grateful you have a paycheck, let the negativity roll off your back, keep your head down, pay your dues, wait your turn, times are hard, no one gets what they want, much less what they deserve…

We are cogs waiting fir our disposal date, filling our lives with material goods bought on credit that we can’t afford to fill the empty hole in our souls. Once there was a time for heroes, when men could the their date in their hands and make of it what they will, now is the time of the living dead pencil pushers drained all vitality by the soulless vampire that is modern life…god speaks but we’re busy shopping for mirrors to notice, to numb to see the strings pulling our arms and legs…

I think Robert E. Howard was the first to see it…he live in a place ruined by greed and hypocrisy and escape of a sort in his mind, in s time and place that never was where there was still a place for adventure…but in the end even he couldn’t escape the cruel chains of banality. His mind may have been free, but his body was still bound to this earth of tears and dust…

So much for the wisdom of age!
