about

It is hard to talk of walls in 2016 without gesturing toward a specific person, a specific movement, and a specific world view. I'm not trying to be coy, I just think enough people will already be writing his name this week. Nonetheless, he is on my mind. He is on my mind nearly all the time. The world is in great upheaval. This is a broad stroke that is easy enough to paint. I'm sure everyone who reads that statement will think of a different catastrophe, which demonstrates my point. It feels as if we are witnessing a great conflagration. Who could ever put out a fire by building a wall?

lyrics

Oh what fires we burn
Oh what fires we burn
Who's to put them out again?
Who's to put them out again?
Oh what walls we build
Oh what walls we build
Who's to tear them down again?
Who's to tear them down again?
Who's to tear them down?
