Pre-Election Blues

Do not get confused
about how people
lose out on things they
want. It is part of
life. Ask The Stones as
they sing over and
over that You Can’t
Always Get What You
Want. Be prepared for
disappointment like
it happens all of
the time. Take yourself
out for a walk and
do not come back to
the place where you have
done the most damage
one person can do
to humanity.
