Army fatigues

I'd spent the better part of Sunday night clearin the contents of my very dusty Armu duffel bag that has spent the last 21 months sittin in a corner in all it's green glory...you see...yours truly has been called up for Army Reservists this comin Wednesday...and i'll be bloody lyin if i said i was lookin forward to it...

Singaporeans are generally very pampered citizens...not many would wana give up their creature comforts...hence the prospect of runnin around for DAYS and at times WEEKS with a rusty M-16 that's well past its prime...a giant of a back-pack...an elaborate pouch that's weighed down by 2 water bottles and a NON-SINGAPORE weather friendly uniform...makes for very unforgiving scenes and scents...

You cant fault the Singapore government though...however essential Reservists is...it is an UNNECASSARY distraction...seriously...what chances does this pathetic soul-less city state have against the likes of fundamentalist Muslim countries that literally engulf us?? Think the Vatican City...

It is this underlyin reason that has left me consumed with overwhelmin rage for the Singapore government to no end...to force ordinary ppl into compulsory conscription for lengthy periods of time (read: 2-3 years) just simply borders on a violation of human rights...it is invasion of personal freedom and space...it is rape...MENTAL RAPE...to coerce us into uniformed slavery is the BIGGEST offence the Singapore government has committed...tell me again why many young Singaporeans want to leave this country...

I'll go to Reservists this Wednesday wearin an invisible tee shirt emblazoned with a big middle finger and FUCK YOU to all things XXXXXXXXXXX....

Speakin of finger...i had the misfortune of cuttin my finger while choppin off my locks for 'fit-for-Army' hair...the fuckin wound wouldnt stop bleedin for an hour...i was this close to gettin it stitched up...

Pain and grimace aside...i refuse to let anyone dictate how i dress...speak...look ahd behave...it's only a God-given right for me to protect my own interests than puttin it out on a platter for half-wits...

A knackered finger...an invisible tee-shirt and a blasphemous contempt for the Singapore 'God'...wow this looks like an interestin week ahead...
