Paul the Lion

(Born in the fall of his 19th year / Comin' home to a place he'd never been before)

Where have you gone, Johnny Cash?


Where have you gone, Johnny Cash?
I and millions miss you

You stood for the blue collar man
You stood for the prisoner
You stood for the poor
You stood for the cowboy
You stood for the indian
You stood for peace
You stood for me, a Socialist

We need you today, Johnny Cash
More than ever

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
