It's the Beginning of Our New Age

After participating in a frustratingly (and ironically titled) conflict resolution session/congressional meeting at the local UU church, I thought I'd post this as my latest blog post. Q & A sessions with a few fevered egos I often don't look forward to and this was no exception. People can be so petty sometimes over what amounts to a bunch of sound and fury signifying nothing.

If you don't have a song
To sing you're okay

You know how to get along

If you don't have a date

Go out and sit on the lawn
And do nothing
'Cause it's just what you must do and
Nobody does it anymore

No, I don't believe in the wasting of time,
But I don't believe that I'm wasting mine

If you don't have a point to make
Don't sweat it

You'll make a sharp one being so kind
And I'd sure appreciate it

Everyone else's goal's to get big headed
Why should I follow that beat being that I'm
Better than fine?
