As much as I try so hard to keep politics out of my blogs – my art has been in “Resistance Mode” for 3 1/2 years. My challenge – to myself – has been to try and take the lesson we learn from Monster Trump as a Future Warning – and then cast that lesson as either and echo of some religious book of knowledge (aka “Religious Screed”), or somehow cast the moral of the story to a fable or fairy tale.
Todays Sermon – from on High in my Garage Recording Studio (“man cave”) is from Jimmy Cliff:
“The Harder They Come, The Harder They Fall”. The “twist” is that Power is a Drug – injected into the veins – creates Monsters of Epic Proportion.
King of Kings
The king of kings We suffer for your sins But you keep on sinnin’ And you keep on grinnin’
Nailed by the king Gold spike in your arm You say it’s alright It can do no harm
Celebrity life You had it all One bad move … You lost it all
Its lonely at the top You’re gunnin’ for the long haul The higher you are The farther you fall
