    I can assure you, the FFA implications of that video did not cross my mind at all... ;)

    Don’t you just hate it when songs bring back memories before you were 20.

    Friends - I resurrect this old chestnut about every four years (election time) along with an old song by The Who "We Won't Get Fooled Again" (but we will!) I used to share this one with my kids, back in the 70s.

    The Voluble Wheelchair - again (and The Who - "Fooled")

    [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYMD_W_r3Fg"]"We Won't Get Fooled Again"[/ame] :

    Lyrics:

    We'll be fighting in the streets
    With our children at our feet
    And the morals that they worship will be gone
    And the men who spurred us on
    Sit in judgment of all wrong
    They decide and the shotgun sings the song

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around me
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    And I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again
    Don't get fooled again

    Change it had to come
    We knew it all along
    We were liberated from the fall that's all
    But the world looks just the same
    And history ain't changed
    'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around me
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    And I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again
    Don't get fooled again
    No, no!

    I'll move myself and my family aside
    If we happen to be left half alive
    I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
    For I know that the hypnotized never lie

    Do ya?


    There's nothing in the street
    Looks any different to me
    And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
    And the parting on the left
    Is now the parting on the right
    And the beards have all grown longer overnight

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
    Take a bow for the new revolution
    Smile and grin at the change all around me
    Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday
    Then I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again
    Don't get fooled again
    No, no!

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

    Meet the new boss
    Same as the old boss



    The Voluble Wheel Chair: "By gad, sir, You are getting old!"(by Ogden Nash)



    Friends - I resurrect this old chestnut ( about every four years (election time) along with an old song by The Who "We Won't Get Fooled Again" (but we will!) I used to share this one with my kids, back in the 70s.



    The Voluble Wheel Chair
    "By gad, sir, You are getting old!"


    I've known the poem for over 50 years. I posted the following on a bulletin board eight years ago and copy it below.


    I can't say that this poem is a favorite of mine, perhaps because it fits me altogether too well. But I had occasion to dig it up as a response to an old friend - someone whom I have known for 65 of my 70 (now 78) years. From a couple of amiable nerds whose only interests were astronomy and chess, we have become Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum; two old curmudgeons, one on the right and one on the left. But we do come together in that last stanza - more or less.

    The poem was hard to find on-line and hard to put together. I have long since lost the book in which I first came across it. Rather than lose it, I am posting it here.

    I suspect that I'm not the only one here who finds some resonance with it.


    The Voluble Wheel Chair

    When you roll along admiring the view,
    And everyone drives too fast but you;
    When people not only ignore your advice,
    But complain that youv'e given it to them twice;
    When you babble of putts you nearly holed,
    By gad, sir'
    You are getting old.

    When for novels you lose your appetite
    Because writers don't write what they used to write.
    When by current art you are unbeguiled
    And pronounce it the work of an idiot child;
    When cacophonous music leaves you cold,
    By gad, sir,
    You are getting old.

    When you twist the sheets from night to morn
    To recall when a cousin's daughter was born;
    When youngsters mumble and won't speak up,
    And your dog dodders, who was a pup;
    When the modern girl seems a hussy bold,
    By gad, sir,
    You are getting old.

    When you scoff at feminine fashion trends;
    When strangers resemble absent friends;
    When you start forgetting the neighbor’s names;
    And remembering bygone football games;
    When you only drop in at the club to scold;
    By gad, sir,
    You are getting old.

    But when you roar at the income tax,
    And the slippery bureaucratic hacks,
    And the ancient political fishlike smell,
    And assert that the world is going to hell,
    Why, you are not old at all, at all;
    By gad, sir,
    You are on the ball!

    —Ogden Nash, The Voluble Wheel Chair
