Festivus for the rest of us:
You have been named supreme ruler of the universe. Your first order of business is creating and instituting a holiday or festival in your honor. What day of the year is your holiday? What special events will take place? Describe YOU DAY in as great a detail as you can muster: the special foods we’ll consume, the decorations we’ll use…everything.
Instead of me being named as the Supreme Ruler here is a fictional character called Banjosca who becomes the supreme ruler of the Universe.
His first order of Business would be to declare MAY DAY as LIBERATION DAY and declare the entire week as Holiday.
Banjosca is none other than someone who has
- the criminal mastermind of a joker
- brute strength and exceptional intelligence of Bane
- and possesses brilliant knowledge on how to induce fear in people just like the Scare Crow.
Hence the name BAne JOker SCArecrow. Banjosca would probably look like this.
Here is a short poem that Banjosca might keep as his National Anthem if he becomes the supreme ruler of the Universe:
When I wake up this morning
I keep telling the person in my mirror
that let nobody bring you down
for you are not a MONSTER…
but you are just ahead of the curve….
When I wake up this morning
I dress myself up
and say to myself
that I am born to
give the instrument of your liberation…
I take the detonator in my hand
and push it in my jacket
have a glass of champagne
to celebrate the victory
of people induced by the fear
of knowing WHO AM I BEHIND THIS MASK
I pick up the gun on the table
and walk down the street
taking a glimpse of those fast-track courts
where I decide “It’s not about what I want… but it’s all about what’s fair”
I pound the gavel down
and sentence all these
corrupt bureaucrats to death/exile
for whatever they choose,
their final path would lead them to die their own death
My city doesn’t want any winged hero
to come and rescue them
to restore the anarchy
to pacify the chaos
to liberate them
to bring them out of darkness
to make them fearless
Instead all it wants is an
Banjosca is not an anti-social
but he is a man with intelligence
ignored by the world filled with Conformists
Banjosca wins the war for he has made people
to step out of their hide outs and be fair enough to
embrace the sensible way of living
by breaking all the rules
The heroes of the city brand me as DIFFERENT
For which I agree…
Yes I am different FUCK YOUR OPINION
it has no meaning for I am still
searching for that one mad fellow
who is as crazy as me
and accepts my ruling unquestionably
Because I believe
MADNESS IS LIKE A GRAVITY
ALL IT REQUIRES IS A LITTLE PUSH
I stop beside the money launderers building and
press the detonator button
Off goes the siren
and the city is in chaos….
100 more people dead
Blood bath in the street
Some more people are liberated
The anarchy has successfully restored
the faith that no money launderer
will ever be able to survive the
chaos created by Banjosca
The tattoo shops are all open
And the kids once again ink themselves with
I give him 2 dollars
and come back to my home
Only to wake up next day
to upset the anarchy…..
and restore some fairness in our system.
Regarding the decorations, Banjosca would put up the below posters all the main streets of the city.
