The great American antiques traditions of free men and life liberty and the pursuit of happiness came out of ancient Persia long before it hit the beaches of Greece. Oh really? Really. The civilzation and democracy of our western civilization came out of Persia as a blossoming of decency in kings who need not be kind but were. Long before Greece. More directly straight onto the beaches of Persia from the beaches of Africa. The Bible tells me so. And so now does science. But they are evil so we close our ears and our eyes.
When gentle civilization and consideration of the other hit the beaches of ancient Greece the earth surely trembled and God unknown to them sure surely pleased. They gave primitive names as Zeus and Mars who all at least had a specific job to perform, which they did well. Need a lighting strike in the mountains. Call Zeus. Coming! Sparta getting antsy and hasn't had a great battle since last auumn? Drums for Mars. When there is a certain order to your life do your resist reason than exlplains otherwise.
Often you assist release their head from their body, quickly or slowly. The gods will deermine. Like bloody horsesnipe they do. People do. In your daily life at the bottom of the statue as the birds make play with your new hairdo we decide. Move. Somewhere for you is a nearby or more distant Athens on a hill. Sparta too. Philosphers and soldiers. Athens as Bambi and Sparta the neighborhood Big Bad Wolf. Everybody happy? Yes but we listen in the night winds for howling stirring sounds. Sigh.
Was it ever thus? Yes. Will it ever be? Sigh. you decide. I decide. We all decide. So we know the devil. I once had his golden face point his machine gun at me while I was on his side of the wall. If you can imagine, it reminds you of the purpose of your vital organs, and you sense to obey is be wise and quiet and put your head down for heavens sake and stop making eye contact, your bride quietly whispers. So you then understand why he is so violently shoving his machine gun in your face. You are the only fool on this long line of windows who is gawking at him.
All others have their heads down, I notice as I look around our steel wheel coffin buggy. Look away! So, understanding, naturally, I swing my head back to face him, afraid I mayhave missed something, which I find is not the case. Now I seem to have aroused him s I notice his nostils flare, his eyes gleam with a more frenzied sense of urgency. How long would I remain a free man in Iran today? It is to laugh. Off we go to prison comrade you do not look right. Some time within that day the train bumped, and then, bumping, bumped us into Disney east after Hell by the Beast.
It was utterly transfixing in October 1961 to pass from Esst Germany going east into West Berlin through their western, but at this moment, our far eastern German entry in to the forbidden planet of freedom. West Berlin. Clash and divdes forever? So we thought. Thank God solved now next serious issues else where. Back there then, the train - we - begin to move and my personal man Genghis seemed utterly deflated. Now losing interest he radiant his fnal blast of enrgetic hatred in his disappointed glance acknowledged that our moment was gone. Forever? Nein. Nyet. Velcome to West Moscow. Ich Bin Nein Berliner.
What a new Berlin. When you put the east and west together, you get way more than two together. It becomes a three star civilization just like that. All it takes its the right civilized values, mix in hope, bomb the kids with chocolates till their moms cry, and soon all are hands bonded and forward we go. And Gott in His Himmel smilens. I know, I saw when the sun dared shine.Thank God it really shines on us each with equal love which we tend to forget. Time, gentlemen, please. Let's try it again from where we began. Peace.
The nuclear message we feel comforted by is the international sign language of the high seas. The letter D is a long flag down and up. An N has two flags with both side mast down. I only learned that. Disarm. Nuclear. Indeed? Not yet. But one day perhaps could we ever feel so assured. Who started this any way? Oh right the fear of God. Actually, Hitler. He died too soon so we bombed Tojo. Enough. Please God that may have been necessary. It should never be again. Let us all pray together. No nuclear. In Deed.
