Monday’s Malcontent Musings II- Crooked as a crook.


I have a headache because I’m dizzy. My view is all crooked.

I’m sick of crooked. It’s everywhere. It’s behind what we love, it’s behind what we hate, anything involving corporations, anything involving large amounts of money, politics, religion, marketing,’s all driven by dishonest people with crooked intentions. It’s causing my head to spin!!
When did crooked become the answer to everything? I mean politics, I know, have always been based on power moves and anything involving power also involves competition. People ache for control, superiority,ย  because then they can be selfish. Crooked..damn you. You sneak your way into good things, good people. You change their perspectives and even how they live. And when you find crooked, prepare yourself because it dances with its friend narcissism. Those two tango in a ring a fire, and they’ll burn ya without remorse because they cancel each other out..right? Because there was a reason for that crooked behavior *COUGH personal benefit at others expense*COUGH…

YEP FULLY JUSTIFIED because well, selfishness! And it’s ok because it’s me, Narcissism!! Rules don’t apply to me!

Greed keeps crooked in business.

And while normally I’d ask you to, please do not excuse my language because I’m fucking mad!
I WANT GOOD TO WIN! Damnit when??

-Here’s a scenario-

Good is playing basketball against Greed, Crooked, and Narcissism.

Greed bear hugs the ball and refuses to move until time runs out..Good is defeated.

Crooked hides the ball under his shirt and says it never showed up.. Good is defeated.

Narcissism pops the ball and says it doesn’t need to play because it’s already the best…Good is defeated.

Without us pushing for Good, up against these guys, it doesn’t stand a chance. Good needs a team.
Good needs everyone showing up and rooting on its side.





Thanks for tuning in to Monday’s Malcontent Musings. Have a great week everyone!

  1. Itโ€™s too bad that good is somewhat ashamed sometimes while bad is so proud and bragging!
    Itโ€™s a good one, I could feel the desperate need for good to rule over

  2. I love this. I also just feel tired sometimes by how often good seems to lose. Your sports analogy reminds me of this song by Chris DeBurgh called Spanish Train. Chris DeBurgh is most known for that song Lady In Red, but his early stuff is very story oriented. The Spanish Train is about a railwayman who dies on a train and the Lord and the Devil play a game of poker for his soul. The Devil pulls an ace from his sleeve to win the game.

    The last verse goes:

    That Spanish Train still runs
    Between Guadalquivir and Old Seville
    And at the dead of night the whistle blows
    And people fear, she’s running still.

    And far away in some recess,
    The Lord and the Devil are now playing Chess,
    The Devil still cheats and wins more souls,
    As for the Lord, well he’s just doing his best.

    I am also heavily procrastinating doing my state taxes. You are helping. lo
