How I Feel When I See

When I see some hypocrite solve the problems of the world with programs and products I get pretty pissed and start spewing alliterations agregiously, because no solution to unsustainability that involves new products is itself sustainable, and no program that ignores the power of people is worth its weight in paperless revolutions.

There once was a high-placed princess who surrounded herself in people to meet and A-listed every whiner you could dine who knew somebody higher up to help the cause.

On the other side of the table sat a shy invertibrate who stuttered and skipped when the sun was out and wanted nothing more than a little justice with his environmentalism, a little human health with his long-term plans, and maybe a little fairtrade with his coffee in the jagged edges of the morning.

The stares they shared across the tree-fallen boardroom table could have melted Chernobyl all over again. "I'm sorry," she said with a royal sneer, "but your people are too disadvantaged to be of any service to us."

So crushed was he that he transcontinentaled to find his long-lost Bigger Brother in Japan, and left all that sustainability stuff to the people who could apparently afford it.
