TRANSPARENT

“Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel”.

“Nero fiddles as Rome burns.”

“The Emperor wears no clothes.”

********
Senor, senor, let’s disconnect these cables
Overturn these tables
This place don’t make sense to me no more
Can you tell me what we’re waiting for, senor?
(Dylan—SENOR)
*******
Bury the rag deep in your face
For now’s the time for your tears.
Dylan—HATTIE CARROLL
******
While one who sings with his tongue on fire
Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society’s pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole that he’s in.
IT’S ALRIGHT MA (Dylan)

 

One thought on “TRANSPARENT

  1. Tom, August will make 57 years since Dylan recorded Blowin in the Wind. I feel that we haven’t learned anything from that and our ears in this country won’t listen to it.
