An Ode to the silent generation 2nd edition

I lost the first version.. Here is something different. A conversation between two men at the family estate in Great Papo’s living room.

“Great Papo. I want to do an poem about you.”

Great Papo gives me the side eye stare. “What you talking Youngster? I don’t need no Ode’s to thee or otherwise. I did my mother fucking job. The end.”

“Come on Great Papo. Tell me about your life in the great depression and working and such.”

Great Papo rolls his eyes. “We needed to eat so I took any job I could get to feed your grandpa and great uncles. The end. I didn’t do nothing special. Just worked one job and had side gigs on the side so I could afford building the house.”

“You built a house? Who built it with you? Did you go to school for trainning? Great Papo stop laughing.”

“Holy shit. You got some imagination. My buddies Phil and George helped me because I helped them built their houses. We learned how to build a house from our fathers. We did what we had to do.”

“How come grandpa never taught my Daddy and me to build a house?”

“That fucking boomer. His majesty couldn’t be bothered with learning the shit. He was to busy riding motorcycles and making money to spend on weed.”

“Great Papo. Grandpa says he comes from the greatest generation ever to have lived. Great Papo stop laughing. He was serious.”

An Ode to Commando 1980s classic

Beneath the cheese. Beneath the action and adventure. There is one true moral lesson in the movie.

I will go to war on your ass and burn your shit because you touched my kid.

The story begins with scenes of murders and one liner classics. Then, enter the hero in the fucking woods with a fucking tree on his shoulder and a saw in his other hand.

He’s doing man shit. In his fucking element. We side line into the cheese of life of a single stay at home dad.

His old boss comes to tell that their after his old team only to be the dumb ass that leads them to him.

Bad guys catch him and his daughter and make him promise to kill some dude in another country for reasons.

He says sure alright. Inside his head and ours it’s sure alright I’ll find you and kill you later in the movie.

Drama, car chases, plane ride and then suit up time.

The dude arrives on the island of assholes. Suits up and prepares to go to war on the assholes of asshole island.

Fuck yeah. Shooting. Fuck yeah. Killing killers. Fuck yeah. Explosion

Fuck yeah final battle against a psychopath in a knife fight.

Cut to the ending…hero is leaving with kid on arm. Dumbass boss shows up late after shit is finished and asks him of he’ll be available for another war in the near future…

The hero looks at the dumbass and says….no chance.

In my head he said. Fuck you, bitch.


Warm Regards
