I’m such a fucking liberal sometimes!

often a song comes on the radio

when you are driving

and it surprises you

because that’s the song

that was playing in your head just now

and then you think

if it’s just a strange coincidence

or a governmental conspiracy

or just magic brewing in the universe

you think about the interconnectedness of all things

about that book on chaos theory you read

like five years ago and liked

everything is somehow connected and related

to everything else

and nothing happens without reason

suddenly you start to see meaning in the traffic

and the point of all cliches

the misery by the side of the road

in the hearts of men

doesn’t bother you anymore

and all your prejudices are suddenly found melting

for the inner global citizen in you

you feel capable of love

immense love

and there is no hate anymore, no anger, no frustration

just peace and calm

and a wise smile upon your face

just then, the song ends

and this benign train of thought

has nowhere to go anymore

all the corruption in the world

suddenly comes rushing back

and now you’re madder than you were before

“I’m such a fucking liberal sometimes!”
