coming out of the closet

i'm coming out of the closet




i was sad
i was lonely
till one day
i beheld
THE ZIPPER

overnight
my life changed
then i heard about
THE ZIPPERIST PARTY

some scoffed
some threw fits
but i experienced nirvana
when i read
THE ZIPPER MANIFESTO

suddenly i was consumed
by zipperist thoughts
but something wasn't quite right
and one day i awoke to find
THE ZIPPERIST PARTY LOGO

i am happy
I have more zipperist friends
than i can count
i can unzip after a hard day
and zip up when foes abound
i'm coming out of the closet

signed,
A ZIPPERISTA

mr. button

you have too much time on your hands. there is a war about to start, did you hear? people die because they can't afford healthcare, did you know? corporate media controls television, did you see?

button down

this zipper mania is out of control

zippers conceal things - like issues that really matter

in the time that it took you to type your coming out of the closet poem (what does that really mean?) you could have went to the dozen or more websites to vote on issues concerning the enviro, feeding hungry folks, etc.

so please, zip it!

You simply don't understand the power of the ZIPPERTISTA. Though these things may be occuring so to is the movement of the ZIPPERTISTAS to aid in such causes...so repect your fellow zipper:)

--scary. really makes me want to give up my idealism and sit somewhere and just "om", or something.
