The Times They Are A-Changin'

Rating: 4.6

(for Bob Dylan)

Come gather 'round hippies
Wherever you roam
And admit that the '60s
Were way overblown
And the freedom
You preached had sunk
Like a stone
In some radical postmodern

Ravings.

Marvelous, simply, Marvelous The disgusting Present, Perfectly summarized written with truthful Sunrise, No contemporary and disgusting LIES! Nor propagandistic, HYPOCRISY! A poem to be kept Close to heart And of which It can be said At least someone Wrote the Truth While so many others Contributed To the destruction Of Democracy While bitter times And murderous Propaganda, Liberty, And our Country, Bled.

It's a time It's a time to change own-self to change into good it's not for woman alone but for man it's not for black alone but for white it's not for east alone but for west it's not for third world alone but for first world it's not for ruled subjects alone but for rulers it's time, good time to change own-self to change everyone into good

A woman's not a woman, And a man's not a man While the pronouns Are rapidly changing- It's he, she, or zhe, Or omnipotent they- For the times they are a-changin' ........ great write; it's the time of changing, not for man, not for woman, not for black not for white, not for east not for west, need everyone to change own-self into good always good, great poetic lyric; Tumbs up..
