I wish I was the first person to think of the connection between current events and this great Pete Seeger song. Alas, I’m not that brilliant. But these lyrics certainly stand the test of time and speak to ours as well:
Well, I’m not going to point any moral;
I’ll leave that for yourself
Maybe you’re still walking, you’re still talking
You’d like to keep your health.
But every time I read the papers
That old feeling comes on;
We’re — waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.
Thanks to audio-forum.net for the lyrics.
