Ozzie's Blues

Post by greg parker on Mon 05 Sep 2011, 10:06 pm

Wrote this in May of '02...


Hostilities came to the fore, but nobody cared any more
for a war to end war, so a truce was declared
on Dubya Dubya Three
And it ends in surrender, inside of a theatre,
where guns are drawn right there on the screen

To stay in the game, one needs an appetite
dem chicken bones didn't put up no fight
inside the Depository.
And it ends in a forage, inside a garage
where arms and small children ought not to be

And they called it a Cold War for all of its glory
where the battle was pitched not in the field but in the story
outside of real history.
And it ends in amazement inside of a basement
under the glare of the world, how long can 15 minutes of fame be?

Now the survivors survive, but they never quite live;
they say kings come & go, and when they want to be glib,
it's called in the name of security.
And it ends in formation of a blue-ribbon commission
and twenty-six volumes to hide the key.

Mixing Pop and Politics he asks me what the use is
I offer him embarrassment and my usual excuses
While looking down the corridor
Out to where the van is waiting
I'm looking for the Great Leap Forward

            Billy Bragg
 Australians don't mind criminals: It's successful bullshit artists we despise. 
             Lachie Hulme            
The Cold War ran on bullshit.

Can't be better expressed. 2002? Well, that's one year after 2001. As a native American, I have to salute the international interest in President Kennedy. The perspective from a far shore can be much more revealing & objective; similar to what a Bostonian like myself sees, that is different than a Texan.
