Seemed like more fun that just posting Silver. Once again I have turned to music to save my sanity.

There’s a bit of a dearth of political protest songs around right now.

Let's write one.

 

We'll start it with

 

 

Every time I'm working on a reply

Things die (lol, sorry Gruidae)

 

Um...

 

Every time I'm working on a reply

Things they die

Every time I see the smokey sky

I wonder why

 

The politicians cannot see

The destruction of the trees

The failing of the land

Mother Nature needs a hand

 

 

Nah, not angry enough. Too folksy. Needs more swear words.

 

Oh god. It reminds me of that awful Julian Lennon thing from years ago. Can't remember what it was called.

 

I'm sorry. You can shoot me now.

Lucrezia Bauble

Come senators, Congressmen

Please heed the call

Don't stand in the doorway

Don't block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There's a battle outside

And it is ragin'.

It'll soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don't criticize

What you can't understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is

Rapidly agin'.

Please get out of the new one

If you can't lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin'.

 

sorry. i’m old...but, wise words.

I’m down with folksy, but there’s none of that, either. Even Springsteen’s gone quiet.

Mostly I just go for Eve of Destruction. But I haven't really heard anything new that I'm feeling, which is sad.

That desperately needs a new version.

Watched a movie about Springsteen’s songs the other day. His lyrics were very timeless.

With abject apologies to Mr Springsteen (and probably to anyone who reads it :()

 

Madmen causing bummers and fires in the summer with an absent Prime Minister

In the dumps cause of Trump as Mitch McConnell stumps the will of the Democrat

With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I checked the Brexit-go-round

With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing Boris Johnson

Crashed through the crowd

[Verse 2]

Some half-wit deadsh*t was runnin' to his golf spot wavin’ wildly with tiny hands

And some tosspot moptop was tied up in a Brexit knot with a country in his hands

And now young Scott with a PM spot finally found a hiding spot and hangs out drinking by the sand

And some state clod riding roughshod says screw it, light the fireworks and turn up the band

[Chorus]

And some were blinded by the right

But cut loose like a deuce they’ll do a runner in the night

Blinded by the right

They got in but they never got it right, but we’ll make it alright

[Verse 3]

Some brimstone baritone anti-cyclone rolling stone VP preacher from the east

He says, "Dethrone diversity, live just like mother and me, that’s how god hates it least”

And some new-mown Vice PM was standin' at the lectern watchin' the fires all dance

And some daft old shock jock stood behind them like a rock to try to gain some relevance

[Chorus]

And some were was blinded by the right

But cut loose like a deuce they’ll do a runner in the night

Blinded by the right

They got in but they never got it right, but we’ll make it alright

[Verse 4]

Some silicone sister married an orange mister and pretends that she’s got what it takes

She said “mumble mumble be best” or something, cause that’s what you expect from fakes

And a hay-cart irrelevant fart was checkin' out the weather chart saying god was going to save our hide

And over in the House the articles were heard and declared the need to impeach was bona fide

[Chorus]

Some are still blinded by the right

Can’t think, have a drink, everything will be alright

Blinded by the right

Murdoch always told us not to argue with the right

Oh but we, we will seek the truth out

There has been a US strike on Baghdad that has reportedly killed one of the top Iranian officials and a top Hezbollah official.

 

This is seismic and no US person in Iraq will be safe.

Clearly the impeachment threat is more scary than the Don was letting on. Nothing like starting a war to get people to stop thinking about national politics.
