365 8/19

Sometimes, from beyond the skyscrapers, the cry of a tugboat finds you in your insomnia,
and you remember that this desert of iron and cement is an island.

I wonder if the course of narcissism through the ages would have been any different
had Narcisssus first peered into a cesspool.
He probably did.

365 8/17

The more you can increase the fear of drugs, crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, 
the more you control all of the people.

365 8/13

Hold your hand out you silly girl
See what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it 
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you

365 8/12

I've had enough, I'm getting out
To the city, the big, big city
I'll be a big noise with all the big boys

He wants to focus on what he calls 'cultural issues.' 
That makes sense, because when you're going to rob people blind
you don't want to have them focus their attention on economic issues.

Now I've been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is.
I have seen hundreds of escaped slaves,
but I never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave.

365 8/9

And found myself alone, alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

365 8/7

Parlay romancing into financing
Opened up a restaurant with Ted Danson
The roaches check in, but they never check out
I set the record straight, no doubt

365 8/6

I got so many styles you think I'm from the U.N.
I broke into the White House and never got caught
And I'd be Neil Armstrong if I was an astronaut
