Day 101 – April 13, 2014

you see them on the subway
you hear them on tv
the whispered promises of happiness
that never come to be
I wake to hear a voice
coming through the the airwaves
“First we take Manhattan,
then we take Berlin”

song lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s “First We Take Manhattan”   album “I’m Your Man” (1988)
