Dog Soldier Dog

SAME WHERE ELSE PART THREE
| AS FAR AS I CAN SEE |
Episode Four

Alberto Martini

Nobody thought it was going to be easy; fuck, nobody though it was even possible to stop the machine from grinding us between the cogs of money and greed for power; if I’m honest, I don’t believe most people were even aware that their shoelaces were being tied together by those merry banksters and their rotting patrons.
But Atom didn’t seem to notice any of the detractions and I was too fired up to care, so we dived in headfirst, breaking the meniscus of mediocre discontent with our strident calls to arms.
Unite behind the Pointing Finger!
This is urgent, this is N.O.W.
The Pointing Finger is aimed at you!
This is not the future, this is N.O.W.
Our taglines hung in the air unsupported, there to fall on deaf ears.
The 3 editions of Ninja Office Worker that we managed to publish were aimed at the wrong audience: the precariously contented middle classes.
We were na├»ve in our belief that the ‘I’m alright Jack’ crowd were gonna get off their arses for anything that didn’t boost their status or grace their paved drives with bigger and bigger SUV’s.
When it comes down to the wire, what’s mine will always trump what’s best.
There were those however, who were listening.
