HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN

Zoominto90925.6

ANTHEM  by Leonard Cohen  (excerpt)

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything

That is how the light gets in.

John Deere 1936!

“Dad let me drive!” / Claire O’Brien 2011

We asked for signs.

The signs were sent,

the birth betrayed

the marriage spent

Yeah the widowhood
of  government —

Signs for all to see.

Unknown-2 2

I can’t run no more
with that lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they’ve summoned up a thundercloud
and they’re going to hear from me.

The song our daddies sang for us/ Zoominto

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is  a crack in everything

That is how the light gets in.

You can add up the parts
but you won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart to love will come –
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That is how the light gets in.

EVERYBODY KNOWS

EVERYBODY  KNOWS

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded.

Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed.

Everybody knows the war is over.

Everybody knows the good guys lost.

Everybody knows the fight was fixed.

The poor stay poor, the rich stay rich.

That’s how it goes. Everybody knows.

Joe Hill, Labor Hero, murdered by the state

_________________________________________________________

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking.

Everybody knows  the captain lied.

Everybody’s got this broken feeling.

Everybody knows the truth has died.

Everybody knows the deal is rotten.

Everybody knows who’s still picking cotton.

Everybody knows it’s all coming apart.

Take one last look at the sacred heart.

That’s the way it goes: everybody knows.
