"The aching heart remains resists / Unsinkable and will not drown"

Of Nietzsche God and Mermaids

Nietzsche is dead yet God persists
The lonesome town is falling down
The aching heart remains resists
Unsinkable and will not drown
Despite the cold steel efforts of
The cabal of conformity
To suck originality
From what we are and what we love

The shaking of their angry fists
Seems impotent in retrospect
If these damned fools are the elect
Who mark us down in little lists
Then dig up Nietzsche and ask him
What we should do in times like these
Descending with the cherubim
Into triumphant vanities

They do not speak for God to me
I swim with mermaids and caress
Their shining skin and feel God bless
Us in the sea since on the land
The Hitlers of hypocrisy
Who never say thank you nor please
But only hate and make a mess
Would not could never understand

I like the comparisons too, and the picture of the Mermaids is lovely. I also like the legend of sirens. BTW-you and I are probably both on the 'list'...

Insightful and interesting comparisons used here Steve with the images and attached graphic making this a complete work of art'and a deep social statement.
