MADNESS IN THE HO– USE, BLAKE ON THE THRONE (Segue of the Day: 7/16/19)

Well, at least no one was beaten about the head with a staff of wood!

Those interested can go to C-Span or YouTube to catch various editions of the shenanigans in the House of Representatives today (Short version….there will be chaos and then tyranny). The funny part was when I had to go to the bathroom, where The Complete Poems of William Blake currently reside  and I swear this is what came up on Page 604, under “Milton.” I mean, I couldn’t make this up could I?

Who creeps into State Government like a caterpillar to destroy
To cast off the idiot Questioner who is always questioning,
But never capable of answering; who sits with a sly grin
Silent plotting when to question, like a thief in a cave;
Who publishes  doubt & calls it knowledge; whose Science is Despair, 
Whose pretence to knowledge is Envy, whose whole Science is
To destroy the wisdom of ages to gratify ravenous Envy
That rages round him like a Wolf day & night without rest
He smiles with condescension; he talks of Benevolence & Virtue
And those who act with Benevolence & Virtue, they murder time on time.

Of course, they’ll swear Donald Trump made them do it. For the cameras at least.

I have no idea why Lou Reed kept interrupting my thoughts, though. Must be the cough syrup. Else the part about villains always blinking their eyes.
