Gripes Almighty

People say to me, “Dave, how can you write what is essentially a sequence of complaints when you are a member of the dominant culture within the dominant species on your planet at what looks to be the absolute pinnacle of its global power?” Actually, nobody says that to me. Who would dare? I'm just imagining being asked such a question so that I can imagine my reply: “Look. What you say is true. I'm also tall and clever, with regular features and a booming baritone voice. Given these attributes, self-pity is the only pity I'm likely to get.”
