The Sea of Katrina


The animals at the New Orleans Zoo are safe because the keepers stayed behind and risked their lives to guard them. They had been planning years in advance for this plus they had the forethought to build the zoo on higher ground. To those who stood by their animals and are risking their lives I salute and pray for you.

Depressing Guitar Songs, Etc.


Westminster

She has pink barrettes and glitter sprinkled in her hair
Her creditors phone the office and I tell them she's not there

She has pictures of angels and poems in praise of God
Sunsets and rainbows stapled to her pod

She sends emails about friendship and little girls with cancer
And I start to reply to them but then delete my answer

One day you'll be rewarded
For all of your kindness
One day you'll be escorted
Delivered from blindness

She's got a son and a daughter, ages six and eight
The father off in County, but she ain't gonna wait

He was hanging out at the Block, just outside the Gap and
He didn't shoot no one but just was in the wrong place when it happened

She's too young to be a mother, too sad to be a spinster
She still lives with her own mom way up in Westminster

There with Mom's boyfriend, her two kids and her sister
But she's looking for her own place since the bastard tried to kiss her

One day you'll be rewarded
For all of your kindness
One day you'll be escorted
Delivered from blindness
One day you'll be afforded
Golden sunset skies
One day you'll be supported
By wishes prayers & lies

Reasons

Because the river's flowing,
Because the grass is growing,
Because the grass will grow some more,

Because the sun is shining,
Because the world's not dying,
Because it's never died before,

We are young;
We are numb;
We are young;
We are deaf and dumb.

Because the music's playing,
Because of what I'm saying,
Because of all the true cliches,

Because I drive a car
And play with my guitar,
'Cause rock 'n' roll is here to stay,

We are young;
We are numb;
We are young;
We are deaf and dumb.

Because we'll won the war,
And then we'll win some more,
Because the world's being set free,

We're on the road to victory;
We're recycling old history,
'Cause there's no better way to be.

We are old,
So we're told.
In the fold,
Our blood runs cold.

The sun shines down on the earth so much plainer now,
Without the towers or the ozone layer now,
So we drive down to the strip mall store for a going out of existence sale,
Buy ourselves a bag of bones and sell the shell of a snail.

We are the last rock 'n' roll generation,
Soaking up the sunset of civilization.
We like our martinis shaken, not stirred.

We are the last rock 'n' roll generation,
Basking in the twilight of civilization.
We like our minds unshaken and undisturbed.

Options

You can lead or you can follow;
Be solid or be hollow.
You can melt below the belt
Or be burnin'.

You can lead or you can follow.
You can dine on yellow marrow;
Drink blood and beer and tears
And yellow urine.

You can lead or you can follow.
You can walk or you can wallow.
You can be pedestrian
Or be a trucker.

You can lead or you can follow.
You can suck and you can swallow.
You can suck and be @#$%ed
Or be a @#$%er.

You can lead or you can follow;
Be Daphne or Apollo.
You can be a tree like me,
But you can't leave.

You can follow or you can lead.
You can starve or you can feed.
You can plant a sunflower seed,
Or you can try.

You can follow or you can lead.
You can have or you can need.
You can cut and you can bleed,
And you can die.
