Halloween Reality Check
INT. A SUBURBAN HOME IN CONNECTICUT- ALL HALLOWS EVE- DUSK.
Susie (five) is cutting out pictures of Michele Bachmann,
eating a corn dog and making a collage.
Susie, what do you want to be for
Don’t you want to be a bunny?
No, I want to represent the rising
lack of truth in our society that
has transpired because of corrupt
politicians and a dysfunctional
system that will never change.
But, I bought you the ears and this
little sparkly nose at Party City.
Mother, I am five, what do you take
me for an idiot? How can I dress up
like a bunny when there are people
dying in the world.
I just thought it might be fun.
Well if you aren’t gonna dress up
then at least get ready to go trickor-
Mother, walking around aimlessly
outside at night, begging people
for high sugar, diabetic,
infectious morsels is not my idea
of a good time.
Now, I’m going to sit here in my
costume and help inform every fool
who comes to the door just exactly
how little their government is
actually doing for them.
Would you like to roast pumpkin
seeds with me?
What I would like, is universal
health care and legalized gay
marriage, not pumpkin seeds!
I just though it would be nice.
What would be nice is if you could
understand for once what I have
spent my entire life working
