Militant Ignorance

This wisdom is timeless,

true in the present as it was in the past

Ordinary ignorance is bad,

but mad aggressively militant ignorance

will destroy a great civilization fast

66,000

There are 66,000 homeless people now on the streets of L.A.

I learned that fact earlier today, and I’ve got a few things to say

It’s a pity, it’s a shame, how reckless policies have ruined the state

of California

A man I know is making his Exodus, and I’m glad he is,

that he chose not to stay

California needs drastic, intelligent change

Very Good Man

He’s pushing seventy now, but he’s still tough as nails

Never lets anyone treat him like he’s any kind of frail

& you can bet that if he sees something wrong

He’ll call it out strong, in the words of his songs

While many others were using music just to entertain

& amuse, he’s always taken a stand for the downtrodden,

for the broken, the abused
