Musings from the Bunker 8/22/20

Happy Saturday,


Some music and poetry to begin the weekend…

 

MUSIC

In these days of sheltering and pandemic, we’re all feeling “Under Pressure”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1ilvfdvrUI

Because we’re in shelter, this seems only appropriate: “Gimme Shelter”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDxpdFKuGb4

For something a little more ridiculous, yet clever, here are Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon performing what no doubt will soon become a COVID classic, “Don’t Touch Grandma”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0qIzCdvC8Q

 

POETRY

Alone

Maya Angelou

Lying, thinking

Last night

How to find my soul a home

Where water is not thirsty

And bread loaf is not stone

I came up with one thing

And I don't believe I'm wrong

That nobody,

But nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone

Nobody, but nobody

Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires

With money, they can't use

Their wives run round like banshees

Their children sing the blues

They've got expensive doctors

To cure their hearts of stone.

But nobody

No, nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone

Nobody, but nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely

I'll tell you what I know

Storm clouds are gathering

The wind is gonna blow

The race of man is suffering

And I can hear the moan,

'Cause nobody,

But nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone

Nobody, but nobody

Can make it out here alone.

Enjoy the weekend,

Glenn
