The Book of You, 11:4-13:4

A quick reading from The Boomer Bible--one of the more intriguing books published in the last few decades, and, I’m fairly sure, one of the most misinterpreted books of the last few decades. Most of the reviews that I’ve read never seemed to get all the way to the Books of You, Us, Weapons, and Ways. If they had, I imagine they might have come away with a very different view of the preceding 800 pages or so.

Anyway, if you ever pick up a copy, enjoy the first bit because it is biting and funny and impressive. But don’t stop until you’ve reached the end--an end that holds up virtues that might surprise you just a bit.

Today, though, I’m pissed for a variety of reasons and the Book of You truly fit my mood.

And if you’re one of the ones who phone it in,
And never rock the boat,
And never do more than you’re told to do,
We’re sick of you.

If you’re one of the ones who’s faking it all,
And think life’s just a dirty game,
And do it to them because they’d do it to you,
We’re sick of you.

If you’re one of the ones who want something else,
And are looking for someone to blame,
And your creed could fit on a bumper sticker,
We’re sick of you.
