Once upon a time,cWhile we were deliberating our daily exploration of the island today, and after Over 70 years , much less 244, of this routine we are experiencing a dilemma of route to take.
Clearly our endeavor to take the shortest zigzag route between 2 points with a cane train to nowhere has hit a conflagration of deciphering an alternative worthy of maintaining sanity while still forging forward on our quest of discovery and satisfaction along with consideration of all important gas mileage, no greater concern could distract our purpose.
But lo and behold a chink in the road is causing much discussion and argument worthy of forgiveness of the vulgarity of 14 letter words expressed in pursuit of a re-route.
The vast amount of routes put forth by nature, air, land, sea, and stream would baffle the minds of both Lewis and Clark if not Sacajawea and Chingachkuk…how could one even begin to venture forth safely, coherently, much less prudently when today of all days, a Friday, when county workers are at home at rest after a grueling 4 day work week locked down at home work with only free popcorn left over from movie houses shut down with lockdown from a sneaky sniveley unseen microscopic all invasive able to knock down tall trees and even greater men…and women, but a never before seen or experienced seasonal rascally invasive species that has laid waste to all who violate the God given requirement for active healthy optimal life longevity of All Vertebrate Lives Matter while woofing down another burger fries and super sized soda extra sweeteners on the side, and they have the nerve to announce at the shock of dawn on Friday morning of the same day the closure of Haleko Road for a whopping 7.5 hours, when had they started at 9pm last night they could done what they could potentially could have done what they would have done in 9.5 hours, including tax draining overtime and a deserved middle of the night lunch break of 2.5 hours and never bothered a now bewildered and perhaps lost in indecision, Haleko adventurer faced with a mind wrenching decision of how to go West past Rice Street. Not since the days of Horse and aBuggy and people named Rice has anyone ever been confronted with a mandatory decision such as this choosing the next best route on this circular island that always ends in dead ends and same scenery return to where you unsuccessfully started like a river that can’t find the sea and ends up in places like Wailua Ag Station Resevour o’r coming out of the Kipu Tunnel alongside the Waita, or stranded at Kee, Kokee, or stuck in the sands of Polihale all because of a hasty governmental absence of another committee meeting rash decision CLOSURE OF HALEKO Road and its already closed Haleko Shops all because of one tiny little short sighted bureaurat deep inside Honolulu a single unsure mind vs 1.5 million bringing the more than one to their finically knees while the bushes become over crowded with homeless families and children unable to find their equally closed schoools all because of the fools of fear being advised by bigger fools of arrogance and satanic disciples of vaccinal greed sure to disrupt the DNA for millennia of earths most recent and formerly touted as intelligent still homo erectus vertebrate called Davey’s Done who single handedly and grossly dis-healthily baggy eyed same for his lewtenantcy bag eyed and successfully contaminated herd immunitor that reduced successful average hard working people to waiting in food lines albeit in cars mimicking going to drive-in movies…and as clearly as blaming a single mosquito bite as the cause of millions of deaths, merely because people have the freedom to choose snacks as a form of human fuel and replacement of vital cells,tissues, organs, and brain dependent activity to choose another route West when every one knows you only can go on the Freeway at the top of Rice and the Round bldg or get a visa and a lunch to go and take the circuitous route into and through and beyond the bowels of Nawiliwili past the M’hune fish pods and past Phil’s house along the Hog Ranch thru the Kipu Tunnel, Koloa, back road to Ka Laheo, furn left out of Papalina, and you are on yuor way to the less exciting side of the Na Pali just in time to reverse all same same because of a let’s hope temporary closure unlike the others becoming permanent as far as the eye can see on an island in the vast Pacific that you could barely see or find pre 1,000 A.D.
Closing Hale Ko makes no sense in the face of all this nonsense…! Do as others and protest by not leaving your home, hovel, or bush camp.
