I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his from rust belt

Squeaky,- oh need some oil
The carpenter singing, his thumb is,- oh it hurts!

Sawed neat between his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for john, all gravel must out

That is a bloody work for sure!
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, quarantine makes

Even a hardy Captain lurch like a deckhand, corona virus got him

Yes sirree! singing is more a caterwaul!
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, Nike simply laid him off

And he wallows among his lasts and discarded rubber soles

There is a pandemic blowing across the land
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work,

Or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs

Long stilled when the Mighty dollar sounded his trumpet:

Put a nickel and the jukebox will sing for any idiot

Who is hooded and his heart has a lynching song.

Blue collar worker and white collar workers alike

Have had change of heart

New you hear is no more the same: Corona virus got them all

A song is no song if heart has stopped beating for your brother

Come black, come yellow the white is black and black is white

When the dollar drew blood and what poured out is now a pandemic.

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, sharecroppers busboys and janitors

Each one singing his from heart is lost In the howling

Winds of unrest.

When star Wormwood* fell:

Bald eagle’s Space war took its toll

One third gone with it.

Benny

*And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter(Re.8:11).

9 Day 4

 

Man makes law and when it has a backing it becomes law of the land. Man feels a need to pursue a course of action in which his strength derives from numbers. Has truth anything to do with it?

A US Senator has blocked a resolution to formally recognise the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War One as genocide. It passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 405 to 11 in October 2019. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said lawmakers should not “sugar-coat history or try to rewrite it”.

The resolution needed to be approved by both houses of Congress and then be signed by the president in order to be a law. Law can ignore the past as in the above case. But is it the truth?
