Leo Gershanok


I don't remember


I don't remember
The whole world is lost in translation
In stories divided in culture

Language isn't any better
Why can't there be just one
Just one language
One story, one people

Who is resposible for this mess
50 different brands of cigarettes
that all taste the same

Yes, we all want variety
Yes, we all wanna be different
Aren't we all the same
And we tell the same stories over and over

So I don't know what they mean by difference
I think we're all the same and different
Actually we are niether, we don't exist
Yes, we don't exist

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)
