I know these times aren’t for joking, and I mean no harm, but check out the place of origin of my American Fender Telecaster above. I’ve tried playing with gloves on but it’s not the same.

Anyway, here’s my dig at politicians worldwide. I might get a song out of it one day. It’s called ‘Candy Floss Equations’.


Ever since the railways crossed the borders
Ever since the mountains touched the sky
Ever since the moon gave up on caring about the tides
Politicians have swapped each truth for another lie

No surprise their candy floss equations
No surprise when self is put before mankind
No surprise the toffee apple false assurances
When their forever promises go unsigned

Protesters, demonstrators, they get locked up
For shouting loud the honest facts of days to come
Deceitful politicians sit back and claim a triumph
When the riot squad have their opponents on the run

Democracy needs to have a blood transfusion
Democracy is dying on its feet
Democracy means nothing to neo-fascists
Claiming power, never accepting a ballet box defeat

When you own the press, the TV News, the money makers
When you own the generals, law makers and Twitter for trading lies
Then power begets power begets power
And you become a corrupt dictator in disguise

Time for music. This one goes by the name ‘Classic Rock Grove – E Major (Guitar Jam Backing Track). Even though it’s a backing track, these groves make for OK background music. I hope you enjoy;

  1. You may be right about democracy dying on its feet. I still have faith in our government here in Canada. In fact my opinion of our Prime Minister , (who appears in front of his house daily to update on what is happening and speaks in French and English and then takes questions) has gone up. I was not a fan of our Provincial Premier but he has risen to the challenge of the CV19 Crisis and has acted like a leader. Having said all that I despair of the Oval Office Oaf to the south of us. The loss of life there is staggering but lives are less important than re-election. Disgusting! Thanks for your post George. It speaks volumes.

    1. Thanks, Anne. I agree. I think your bloke, plus Jacinda in New Zealand, Nicola in Scotland and Angela Merkel in Germany are honest and do their best. But that’s about it. Boris in the UK, and that bloke in the US – I can’t bring myself to write his name are walking, self-interested disasters ~ George

  2. Thanks for the laugh. And you already know I am quite happy to have a laugh laugh in the middle of this madia-stoked conpanic. I know this because you ‘Like’d my posts “Unconventional Gambit” and “Couldn’t See That Coming”. And besides having a good laugh has been clinically proved to strengthen one’s immune system. 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 (etc.)

    1. Writing humour is like playing the guitar. It only works for those with the gift. I can’t claim to be that good writing funny stuff. I’ll laugh with you on your posts. Thanks for the read ~ George
