lazy projector

lazy projector If memory serves us, then who owns the master How do we know who's projecting this reel And is it like gruel or like quick drying plaster Tell me how long til the paint starts to peel Is it like Pyramus or Apollo or an archer we don't know Though history repeats itself, and time's a crooked bow Come on tell us something we don't know Now who's the best boy and the casting director And the editor splicing your face from the scene It's all in the hands of a lazy projector That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine They say all good things must come to an end Everyday the night must fall How it all came to this, I simply can't recall Too many cooks in the kitchen How the mighty must fall But I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all Breaking up at all And it's all in the hands of a lazy projector That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine ...

scarey times

scarey times A scene from Trump's dream !! that may well come back to haunt him. The Mexican Revolution 1910 - 1920 The US was constantly getting involved in the Mexican revolution and had forces deployed in Mexico. In 1916, Pancho Villa and his band of 500 to 1,000 men raided Columbus, New Mexico, burning army barracks and robbing stores. In the United States, Pancho Villa came to represent mindless violence and banditry. 10,000 Troops led by Pershing were sent to capture Pancho but after eleven months they gave up. Then a much larger army again under Pershing's command penetrated as far as Parral, some 400 miles (640 km) south of the border, but Villa was never captured. The campaign consisted primarily of dozens of doughnut skirmishes with small bands of insurgents. There were even clashes with Mexican Army units; the most serious was on 21 June 1916 at the Battle of Carrizal, where a detachment of the 10th Cavalry was nearly destroyed. War would probably have been declared but for the critical situation in Europe. Even so, virtually the entire regular army was involved, and most of the National Guard had been federalized and concentrated on the border before the end of the affair. Normal relations with Mexico were restored eventually by diplomatic negotiation, and the troops were withdrawn from Mexico in February 1917. One hundred years later, President Trump is set to build a wall (and ban the sale of ladders and tunnel building equipment to all Mexicans) Chumps always try to treat the symptoms rather than dealing with the underlying cause. My photo is from an exhibition of revolutionary art that was shown at the British Museum. ...

he made so many of them

he made so many of them I read the news today - oh boy! "he made so many of them" We must get the world's population down to a few million and then it will be just right for us rich folk that are left. This is how we do it. Create a catastrophe and then there will be calls from everyone saying "something must be done" - - - and then we do it. ...

the age of self

the age of self They say the working class is dead , we're all consumers now They say that we have moved ahead – we're all just people now There's people doing 'frightfully well' there's others on the shelf But never mind the second kind this is the age of self They say we need new images to help our movement grow They say that life is broader based as if we didn't know While Martin J. and Robert M. play with printer's ink The workers 'round the world still die for Rio Tinto Zinc And it seems to me if we forget our roots and where we stand The movement will disintegrate like castles built on sand ...
