Check the narrative. Another letter from the Terrordome. Ain’t no escape, everybody got a megaphone. Beam to the scream large caps to ya telephone. Check the narrative. we ain’t never alone We’re lonely, can’t tell the real from the phoney Waiting for a hero to ride in on his microphone. So clear we can’t see it for the double speak. Confronted everyday by the fuckery. A story breaks every minute that will blow your mind And its buried by another and another and another Homosapien doing something ugly. proper ugly. food chain thuggery. Follow the money up, the skulduggery’s running every level up To the end of level boss I met many bullies - they come still, But I never met one that my spirit couldn’t kill Check the narrative our bad guys badder than Vader. Iron lady emperor. blood thirsty crusader. Blackwater mercenary. Halliburton prospector. Elect a director hormonal Hannibal Lecter Wreck ya whole set in 140 characters or less. I got message from the president, A world wide open letter Opened it. Read it. Said we was suckers. They wanted us pay for Armageddon or whatever Another day another dollar. It make me wanna holler. Do I wear white feather? Getta dagger? Gather data? Get up in a white collar? Get a foot on the ladder? Be a bandit? Get the paper? Wait up in a clock tower? Back a rogue actor? Bring down a super power? Play the market? Break the bank? Buy a billionaire bunker? Spunk a monkey on new sneakers? Burn with all the other suckers? Will ya be a bystander or a principal player? Don’t need a soothsayer for the end of this caper. It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder Should I break out of this fortress? Join my brothers at the borders? Fight the bullies? Bite the bullet? Never give nor follow orders? Should i wave a white flag or write a love letter? Better write a blank cheque. Check the narrative - These bad guys bigger than god ziller Badder than a driller killer monster manga gang banger. We cant so we wont so we don’t give up. We won’t give into anger, Understand the fear. We’ll savour the laughter We will spread love. We wont get lost in the battle In the words of my father Every things auspicious And Nothing really matters This is our chapter. Collapse and rapture.

about

UNITED KINGDOMS are a collective who make NEON NOISE to permeate the Monopolis, spread love and reach out in sonorous union with the 7.7 BILLION

BLACK FRIDAY is a sonic collage cut n pasted from news feeds, holy lyrics, arcane knowledge, chatrooms babble, commercials, paternal wisdom and love letters in attempt to reflect and reconcile being one of The 7.7 BILLION hurtling through space on this little rock.
