I Aint Accountable….

I aint accountable..and you cannot make me…

Man have I heard that more times than I want….

Children leaving home..not because they want to..but because they have to…

And leaving behind..all the refuse…and purchases made under the influence..of no accountability…

And the parent..the partner…the roommate…

Now gets to face..clean up..figure out what to do….

With the purchases..of indiscretion left behind….

Recently a friend of mine…had a child move out…

What was left behind…was a room..full of trash…

And an off the hook dog..that had destroyed near every room…in the house..

And those living in the house..were prisoners….and they liked it..they must have..because the animal ruled the roost…

An outsider steps in…and is attacked by this animal…because it senses…oh..you aint like the others…

An outsider stepping into this..is like putting a noose around your neck..and being dragged around the town center..and hoping you do not make it…

That is what it felt like…

Me being the outsider..said..WHAT?????

Dog sleeping..(not with the owner)…like it was its lover…

And that just made me want to vomit….but it really happened…

Dog digging a hole in the carpet..to get into (not the owners) room…so it could shower it with kisses…while the outsider was trying to talk to not the owner…

Hiding food on top of a refrigerator…and the tops of cupboards…so dog..would not eat your child’s lunch…

It was like I had stepped into a porn movie…

And I was the only one…having a problem with this….

And so many excuses were given…

And I thought..why..?

Why will we not make another accountable..?

And do we not know that when we take on another’s action..and accountability..it dirties us…

We now lose our vision..our sight line..between what is real..and what is false….

And we play in the false sandbox….

And the outsider spoke…and said..

I cannot do this…I cannot be part of this…

A person lost..

An animal boss…

Because no one..no one will take accountability…

Except the person…the outsider..who stepped on the pile and said whoops…and oh my..it is all over the place…

And the owner..and the not the owner..giggled..

And told me to get used to the mess…and it was my job to clean it up…

And you know..for a second..I believed them…

Just like I believed..I deserved punches…

And accountability…

for many…

Is like lying in bed with the dog…and stroking its belly as it cuddles up to your belly..and more……and…

You telling yourself…I like this…

Poop..vomit..destruction and all….

And knowing…

You just as full..with poop..vomit..and destruction…

And be careful….

But no worries…you aint accountable….

  1. Wow! Isn’t that the truth? When will people hold themselves accountable? Some never do.
