Numbers

Rise like Lions after slumber

In unvanquishable number –

Shake your chains to earth like dew

Which in sleep had fallen on you –

Ye are many – they are few

The Mask of Anarchy, Percy Bysshe Shelley

The old get old

And the young get stronger

May take a week

And it may take longer

They got the guns

But we got the numbers

Five To One, James Douglas Morrison

  1. From one (he)artist to another: what a sad commentary on these times that you had to even think of writing a disclaimer…it’s worse here on the other side of the pond I can tell ya (on any ‘subject’).
    Excellent post.
