nice song
we could wake up wenesday morning
in a pile of smoke and ash
singing happy days are here again
I been trying to take the long view about people power
have you ever read Doughlas Adams, he has a bit about the bowl of petunias
as if falls from the sky it is thinking
"oh no not again"
if we knew why it thought that we would know a lot more about the universe
sorry just trying to not be so double minded these days, doom and gloom and haleleuiah, watching too much Golem TV religion shows, a preacher with pretty knees and a pulpit with a cross that looks like an airplane her last words before the commercial break "someone who needs a smack up side the head" then back from commercial she is all choked up fighting back tears and asking one more time to order her product. Next show Jim Robinson W's friend who is plugging his book about Our president of good and evil. His faith and the choice we have between destruction and life. He lies about the Jefferson bible, he lies out right fucking lies about why Jefferson composed that book. oh shit I am ranting good bye
