‘Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasies
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes”
It was Peter at Adrastos who made some remark about “the hippies” in reference to a McCain ad. Somehow that put me in mind of this song.
McCain. Iran. A dying nation of moving paper fantasies.
1968 was a long way from the end. Kids who started high school that year died in Vietnam.
Obama and the Democrats had best not fuck it up.
