Oh, God. Pride of Man. Broken in the dust again.

Excursion To The A-Maya-Can Ruins

My wife and I just got back from visiting one of the many Maya ruins. While listening to our tour guide talk about the history of the location, I thought about how, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Quoted from, The Book of Hope & Change, Chapter 44, Verses 1-6.

1 Fifty-one lunar cycles ago, Obamarod became ruler of Amayaca. And in the first year of his reign, the econo-god did turn his back on Amayaca, so Obamarod took a great offering from the inhabitants of the land, and sacrificed it unto the sun god, Solyndra. But Solyndra refused to shine. And he sacrificed unto Fisker, who made beautiful chariots for Obamarod. But the chariots could not move.

2 And Obamarod was sore displeased with those in the land who succeeded, while he failed, and so he commanded his collectors to go to those upon whom the econo-god smiled, and take their stuff by force and extraction. And his collectors did as they were commanded.

3 And Obamarod did offer their stuff to the entitlement-gods, but the entitlement-gods were too many, so Obamarod did command that even more stuff be taken and given to the entitlement-gods. But the entitlement-gods grew in number, and did spit out the offerings and waste them, and the econo-god did laugh a great laughter at Obamarod, and yet refused to rain upon Amayaca.

4 Then Obamarod besought the high priest and priestess of Rap and Culture, Jay-Z and Beyonce, and they did sing the praises of Obamarod before the people. And the high priestess shouted, "bow down bitches," and the bitches, they did bow down. But still, the econo-god said, "F-off."

5 Finally, the Living God, who created all things said, “What the...? How can so many do so little with so much? Yet a little while, and my patience shall end with you and your gods. Neither your econo-god, nor sun god, nor your entitlement gods – NONE of your gods – shall be able to help you in that day. Because you have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and have hewn out for yourselves cisterns; broken cisterns, that can hold no water."

6 And so, like all the nations before it – Egypt, Babylon, Rome, Greece, Maya, Inca, Aztec, etc., etc., etc. – Amayaca, and the pride of man, would be broken in the dust again.
