Dreaming Demon

It's a Randy Newman World

Maybe this should be called Bush's Song...

God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind)

by Randy Newman

Cain slew Abel, Seth knew not why

For if the children of Israel were to multiply

Why must any of the children die?

So he asked the Lord

And the Lord said:

Man means nothing, he means less to me

Than the lowliest cactus flower

Or the humblest Yucca tree

He chases round this desert

'Cause he thinks that's where I'll be

That's why I love mankind

I recoil in horror from the foulness of thee

From the squalor and the filth and the misery

How we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me

That's why I love mankind

The Christians and the Jews were having a jamboree

The Buddhists and the Hindus joined on satellite TV

They picked their four greatest priests

And they began to speak

They said, "Lord, a plague is on the world

Lord, no man is free

The temples that we built to you

Have tumbled into the sea

Lord, if you won't take care of us

Won't you please, please let us be?"

And the Lord said

And the Lord said

I burn down your cities-how blind you must be

I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we

You all must be crazy to put your faith in me

That's why I love mankind

You really need me

That's why I love mankind

About Me

I woke up sick yesterday. I had a headache and stomach yuck. Today I've filled out the Red Cross volunteer application. I'm going to drop off the application and some stuff for shelters.

Saturday night I got so mad at Bush I thought my head would explode. I've always been pretty laid back about politics. I figure that in a democracy you can't expect to get someone you agree with all the time. I understand getting frustrated when the powers-that-be behave in a way you don't like. But if they are chosen by a majority vote, believing that the majority should always think like you is crazy. So I'd bitch and moan about elected officials I disagreed with, but really, deep down, I thought it was OK. Variety is bound to be the outcome of Democracy.

But now I'm pissed. Whether by intent or by accident, Bush and the New Republican party have wiped out thousands of people and allowed thousands of homes to be destroyed. Now they are taking advantage of the situation to improve their Oil Corporation Cronies fortunes. Bush is a terrorist. He has killed more people than Al Quaeda. He is evil, evil, evil.

Oh well. America has been though hard times caused by evil people before. We must remember that. We will survive.
