Easing Our Pain

Sunday, October 08, 2017

Sometimes rock and roll and gently weeping guitars help ease our pain. 

Our Sunday Morning Stop at the Intersection of Science, Art, Music and Humanities team elected to respectfully honor all of the innocent victims of last Sunday's senseless Las Vegas massacre, as well as George Harrison's iconic music and lyrics, performed by our beloved Tom Petty and Prince.

They are all gone too soon.

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping

While my guitar gently weeps

I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping

Still my guitar gently weeps.

I don't know why nobody told you

How to unfold your love

I don't know how someone controlled you

They bought and sold you.

I look at the world and I notice it's turning

While my guitar gently weeps

With every mistake we must surely be learning

Still my guitar gently weeps.

I don't know how you were diverted

You were perverted too

I don't know how you were inverted

No one alerted you.

Still my guitar gently weeps. 

Wishing our readers a thoughtful Sunday morning.
