But That's Tomorrow.

I sit and face the fire Cool warm drink in hand Listening to the moody strains Of that poet-singer Campbell man, "I need you more than want you, And I want you for all time."

As he sings I look at you, I think, oh, God, is ever that a line To tell you of the way I yearn For your lasting potent presence. Oh, when, if ever, will I learn To take and hold you by my side And not like a fool let you go Whenever a new face I've eyed?

I squeeze you hard to let you know, And with your soft lips you respond. It's only when I realize That tomorrow will find me gone With thirteen thousand other sons To grow from boy into a god Of brass and boots and well-greased guns. A god of mercy? one of love? No. God no! I'm a god of hate And killing and warring and death And pain and tears - a god of fate.

But that's tomorrow; I have one Night left to think, and pray, and sleep If I can sleep before I'm gone. So help me, hold me, love me now. Lay my head on your sighing breast, Bend close, gently kiss, smile at me, So when I've forgotten the rest, You'll be there in eternity.

Ex Slave Story quote Folkes ain got de sense dey's born wid. Ain smart like dey used to be. An times ain good like dey was. Ef'n it hadnt been for some of dem craz fools, actin up and smarty, me an my wife'd be gittin maybe a hun'ered an' more dollars a month, 'stead o the fifteen we gits 'tween us for ole' age help. They'd ought to let Rosevelt alone. An its his own folks as is fitin' 'im. He is a big man even ef he is a Democrat. I'm a Republican though. Voted my first time for Blaine."

I am a Democrat. The three commentators speak for themselves. Only themselves.

Some would say Mr. Reagan and Mrs. Thatcher suffered while still breathing. Both had Alzheimer's. Hate their politics but have charity for the person.
