From the Eyes & Mouth of a...

A Most Telling Sight

In Shocking Black & White

 

 

The Emperor

 

Within the midst of a witless and spineless crowd

 

From the mouth of the bade was uttered out loud

 

A plain to see truth rendered mute and un-allowed

 

Under pain & ridicule and exile they've been cowed

 

Their eyes be opened by one not yet indoctrinated

 

Made to see the lies by one so young and untainted

 

How they had so easily been decieved and beguiled

 

To see it now through the innocent eyes of a child

 

Reality much to their chagrin and shame it came to pass

 

That they were fools to fall in line behind another big ass

      Ok WW. I know the vids a hard to get to for various reasons. These two though kinda book end the text. The first vid is by the Moody Blues. ‘The Story in Your Eyes’
      The second vid is by The Who. ‘We won’t Get Fooled Again’
      You can google the lyrics so to expand this post. Still and all. It’s the text that makes the point.
      And I truly appreciate and thank you very much for ridin’ along this wind blown Bird. Wherever they may blow. As always my Best to you Lone Drifter. My very best.

        I understand I googled moody blues and I will say I do like the lyrics especially
        We are part of the fire that is burning
        And from the ashes we can build another day Superb
        Thee honour will alway lie with me black bird,
        Where we fly or ride the noble feathered phenom will always have a place around my prairie campfire should you ever need to rest your weary wings!!!

          “And the men who spurred us on
          Sit in judgement of all wrong
          They decide and the shotgun sings the song”

    I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
    We don’t get fooled again

        Yes they seem to be two outcomes we’ve been pin balling between for as long as I can remember. And then some.

    Nicely done as usual, blackbird – with excellent song choices to boot!

      Thank you much. For me its two sides of the same coin. Or put another way. Two wings of the same bird.
