Six degrees to Scott Norman
Listening to the non-radical radio
we can’t get radical radio in Philadelphia land
listening to the non Radical radio
I thought I heard I thought I heard
Lizard warning! Lizard warning!
which reminded me of Anne-Adele’s character
which reminded me of Scott Norman
who is not fictional, despite many wishes
despite many wishes that he would be
eternal gadfly eternal misanthrope
we all need to have old whippersnappers
who dance to a beat only they can hear
Dance to a beat only they can hear
Does that make them crazy and make us sane
Or does it reverse
mean our spiritual hearing is closed
and we will not have spiritual healing until we have spiritual healing
I have to go out and shovel the Lizzards on my street
inspired by listening to
Jill Pasternak on WRTI
