It Is Said

It is said, the only land
the Occupant can live
in is the land of syco-
phants. This is not the
land of Jonathan Swift.
Gulliver didn’t travel
here. They say that the
Occupant has “jumped
the shark”; some say the
shark got cheated; others
say, “We did.” Some say
the Occupant is on the
way out. Sartre said there
is no exit. Camus said
something like, in spite
of the fact that not much
of this makes any sense
at all, do the ethical thing.
If Camus were alive, I
would wear a tee-shirt
proclaiming, “Camus
for President.” and
if Sartre were alive,
another one saying,
“Sartre for Secretary
of State.”
