Of Cotton & Things Rotten


‘Poetry of America –
The Cosmic Athletes’
~ by Salvador Dali

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 get rich.
That’s how it goes.
Everybody knows.

And everybody knows
that it’s now or never.
Everybody knows
that it’s me or you.
And everybody knows
that you live forever,
ah, when you’ve done a line or two.
Everybody knows the deal is rotten.
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
for your ribbons and bows.
And everybody knows.
~ Leonard Cohen

Patron Saint of the Junk Food State
and the Wholly Processed Carbohydrate


The Converts … Obesity & Malnutrition
dished up on one plate
in the developing world
where the profits are great

    1. My pleasure, being a blonde
      with a dose of concrete blues 😎
      Being a mad dog in the midday sun
      I also like Joe Cocker’s take on
      First We Take Manhattan

      Everybody knows that
      Lady Liberty has been faithful
      Give or take a century or two
      Everybody knows she’s been discrete
      So many people she had to defeat
      That’s how the Empire grows
      Everybody knows
