Your Weekly, Sunday Interlude: “Gimme Some Truth”

This song came to my lips on Thanksgiving morning. Many of us are weary, uncertain, frightened. Many who were duped by an A-1 grifter will soon be singing the same song. It’s John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth,” from Imagine. Forgive me for posting two Lennon songs form the same album two weeks in a row, but they bring me back to a time Mom and I listened to the album and the words fit so well today.  Plus, it’s Lennon, so no apology needed. It’s a song to comfort and activate.

Between the senseless blather from social media defending the bigoted sexual assailant, double-speak justifications for same from self-proclaimed Christians and propaganda so deep there is no hope to reach, it’s intolerable for those with any morality or world view.

“I’m sick and tired of hearing things from uptight, short sided, narrow-minded hypocritics…I’m sick to death of seeing things from tight-lipped condescending mama’s little chauvinists.. All I want is the truth, just give me some truth.”

Yes, I am still angry. I’m still angry from W so this will continue.
