A MERRY MINUET

They’re rioting in Africa, they’re starving in Spain .
There’s hurricanes in Florida , and Texas needs rain.
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch.
And I don’t like anybody very much!

But we can be tranquil, and thankful, and proud,
For mans’ been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud.
And we know for certain that some lovely day
Someone will set the spark off, and we will all be blown away.

 
They’re rioting in Africa, there’s strife in Iran .
What nature doesn’t do to us, will be done by our fellow man.
 
Remember that song . . . by the Kingston Trio?  Well of course, I don’t myself.  I’m not a Hippie-Dippie, Flower Child, Woodstock Generation, Tune-in, Turn-On, Drop-Out, Age of Aquarius, Haight-Ashbury, Buzzerkley Free Radical.  Still a dog after all.
 
Not a Nostrodamus Prognisticating Freemason predicting Galactic Alighment, End of the World, Freemasonry.  Or a Hopi Kachina Blue Star predicting Super Nova Volcanic eruption wiping out most of the human population (which prolly means dogs too) in Y 2012, End Date of the Mayan Calendar when the Sun is aligned with the center of the Galaxy, the Milky Way & we will all be blown away.
 
But you’d think, with all this uncertainty going on, humans would find better ways to solve problems & resolve differences that taking up arms & bombs & blowing the earth outta orbit before the end of time as we know it. 
 
It just seems to me that the more things change, the more they stay the same.   I just hope PlanetPluto is still there when I need it.  OpalK9 OTJ
