Goodnight from Sydney

Tonight's photo: Waiting for a city bound train

For some time I have been toying with the idea of including a few song lyrics in this final post of the night. Tonight seemed a good idea as any to start!

Some lines appeal to me for no apparent reason - they just enter my head and hang around. Others - well others will speak for themselves. Tonight I have chosen a few lines from Phil Ochs.

I hate Chou En Lai, and I hope he dies,
but one thing you gotta see
That someone's gotta go over there
and that someone isn't me
So I wish you well, Sarge, give 'em Hell
Yeah, Kill me a thousand or so
And if you ever get a war without blood and gore
Well I'll be the first to go

Wherever you may be - be safe!
