365 1/31


With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you

Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of  that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away

It means that I'm not the Samaritan.  That I'm not the priest, or the Levite.
That I am the ill intent...
who set upon the traveler on a road that he should not have been on.

A broom is drearily sweeping 
Up the broken pieces of yesterday's life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife

Krypton Elder: You three criminals have been caught in a further act of seditious treason.
General Zod, your only feeling was contempt for our society;
your only desire was to command.

Seeing more and feeling less
Saying no but meaning yes
This is all I ever meant 
That's the message that I sent

I'm so wiped out with things as they are
(you know that I could)
I'd send my photograph to my honey
And I'd c'mon like a regular superstar

The debauched ethics of all casino magnates, including Trump, define the dark, petulant heart of America. Our schools and libraries lack funding, our infrastructure is a wreck, drug addiction and suicide are an epidemic, and we flee toward the promise of magic, unchecked hedonism, and perpetual stimulation. 
There is a pathological need in America to escape the dreary and the depressing.

Stars are out and there is sea
enough beneath the glistening earth 
to bear me toward the future
which is not so dark. I see.
