Song*


It's not my fault!
It's not my fault!
that the seas are soiled
with offal and oil
It's not my fault!

It ain't my doin'!
It ain't my doin'!
that trees are stained
with acid rain-
It ain't my doin'!

I can't do nuthin'!
I can't do nuthin'
It's past the command
of any one man-
I can't do nuthin'!

I don't make the rules!
I don't make the rules!
Exxon does, dammit,
with help from the Senate-
I don't make the rules!

You can't walk to work!
You can't walk to work!
And there ain't no train
so who's to blame?
I can't walk to work!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
