“Hey — don't let 'em kid you
Stay cool it'll be all right
Don't trade today for tomorrow
Tomorrow for tomorrow night
You chop wood — carry the water
Sometimes it be that way
No lie — the downtown canon
So wild so fresh so free
Stand by the downtown canon
I say that it's got to be...............


Too bad she don't remember
Too bad that I still do“

“The men in Washington seem unable to accept that there are more poor people than rich people in the world. They do not recognize that poor people, in the late twentieth century, cannot endure poverty and disease and ignorance forever. When minimal social justice is long denied, the poor will rebel. If rebellion can be crushed - as is perhaps possible in a very small country like El Salvador - it will rise again later. Nicaragua can be bombed flat, and then what? A success story like Vietnam? [1986].”

― Martha Gellhorn, The Face of War
