You know Tom Paine wrote the first best-seller at a dark time in the Revolution when we were losing and all the soldiers were deserting. Giving up. And the book was called Common Sense and it was really just a long list of questions. And one of the questions was: Does it make common sense for an island to rule a continent? And everybody kind of went hmmm and they signed back up.
And today you could ask: Does it make common sense for a country to rule the world? But no matter what your answer, no matter what you think, no matter what you vote for
We just keep calling em up, calling em, calling em up. No matter what.
A snippet of lyrics from Laurie Anderson’s Dark Time in the Revolution. When she talks about how, “We just keep calling em up”, she is talking about soldiers. The always great Laurie Anderson brought a little light to my daily jog today with some truth.
