Okay, I'm Better Now!: Tony's Tirades!by William E. "Tony" Franklin
In reading this book, you will get a glimpse of my day-to-day life. The tirades (or stories) are based on true life events that have either pissed me off or made me think. No doubt, this book will make some of you uncomfortable and somewhat offended. Half of you won't make it through the first tirade. I don't care. But if you can keep reading, your uncomfort may release you and be a blessing from a maniac.
I feel so many things go unquestioned or unanswered in the world. We live lives not of "quiet despair", but of "quiet slavery." We submit to a "9 to 5", we submit to marriage and divorce, we submit to 2.5 children, we submit to our friends' dumb ass suggestions, we submit...we submit.... We witness things that piss us off and we do nothing. Yet, we will wait for someone to take up the mantle and speak out. Well, I could no longer wait for someone else to do what I should have done long ago.
When I wrote the first tirade, I was pissed off. And while I was writing it, I had no intention of writing another (at least initially). But, the release was incredible - therapeutic. And the funny fucking thing was I really had something to say - all be it in my own unique way. People wrote me to let me know I had tapped into something or touch a nerve. My friends wanted me dead..my family wanted me deader. But, everyone wanted more and I had more to say.
So as you read this book, whether you are sitting on the toilet, in prison cell or in your cubicle at work, it really is my gift to you. Please let me know what you think. Hell, you may become the next subject of a tirade
