USA – THE PROMISED LAND of LONELINESS. Enjoy!

The United States has a total resident population of 310,297,000.

No doubt – a total population of 310, 297, 000 Souls living in a wonderful loneliness.

Alienation & Desolation –  the first and last name of the American.

Yes, no doubt you can say: the first and last name of almost every American.

More or less, this is the truth: ALIENATION & DESOLATION.

To socialize – a verb, an action, a modus vivendi known only in the restaurants, pubs, taverns, clubs, at football and other American games and, last but not least in malls, any kind of malls, starting with Wal-Mart.

Obviously – let say, around 100,000,000 broken families.

The Family today in the USA is just an empty word.

Like, you know, almost everybody says to you on the street:

“How are you doing?” which is just a poor shadow of “Hello!

Also, if something good or bad happen, almost everybody says:

“Oh, my God!” or “Jesus!” which means absolutely: NOTIHNG.

Therefore – do not be afraid:

if you are or if you feel alone, I’ll say to you, welcome to the club:

“USA – the Promised Land of Loneliness”.

And, you can bet, you’ll be not at all alone – look around you:

310, 297, 000 Souls like you are… alone.

So, enjoy!

But – DO NOT ASK, WHY?

 

“… the twilight  today/

on the highway… some cars run/

… in the twilight zone…”

SUA – FAGADUITA TARA a SINGURATATII. Bucura-te!

Statele Unite ale Americii au o populatie de 310, 297, 000 milioane de locuitori.

Nici o indoiala – in SUA, 310, 297, 000 milioane de Suflete traiesc intr-o minunata singuratate.

Alienare & Desolare – prenumele si numele Americanului.

Da, nici o indoiala, aproape ca poti spune, prenumele si numele fiecarui American.

Mai mult sau mai putin, dar acesta e adevarul: ALIENARE & DESOLARE.

A socializa – este un verb, o actiune, un modus vivendi ce exista doar in restaurante,

pub-uri, taverene, cluburi, la meciurile de fotabal american si alte sporturi americane si, nu in cele din urma, in mall-uri, incepind cu binecunoscutul Wal-Mart.

Fireste – sunt  vreo 100,000,000 milioane de familii distruse.

Familia in SUA nu este decit un cuvint oarecare.

La fel cum pe strada esti salutat cu “How are you doing?” (Ce mai faci?) ce nu este decit umbra agonica a lui “Hello!”.

Aproape fiecare American, daca i se intimpla ceva rau sau ceva bun, exclama;”Oh, my God!”  sau “Jesus!” care nu inseamna absoult: NIMIC.

De aceea – nu te teme: daca esti singur sau te simti singur, te invit sa fii membru plin in clubul American al Singuratatii: “THE PROMISED LAND of LONELINESS”.

Nu, hotarit lucru nu vei mai deloc singur – sunt impreuna cu tine 310, 297, 000 milioane de Americani… singuri.

Deci, bucura-te!

Dar, nu intreba: DE CE?

 

“… crepuscul astazi…/

pe sosea masinile…/

…apus de plumb, plumb…”
