The country needs a father
Not an uncle or big brother
Someone to keep the peace at home...
Though some say you'll only understand a gun
Got to prove them wrong
Or you will lose the battle
Don't you know we'll start a war
Which will be won by none
--- Steppenwolf, "Move Over"
Written in 1969, and yet more apt than ever today. How sad.
Reading I was so boring that I wanted to claw my brain out through my eye sockets.
