Ancestral Voices dominate this sordid Sabbath with arguments of war, dialogues of destruction. Conflicting claims on reason raise the question which is grain and which is leaven, which the bread and which the oven? Mountain of Lower Manhattan swarming with abandoned faces, smoking, stinking Rock of Ages, consolidated flesh, cement and circuitry seeded by sorrow, Rise! Like vapor from a cauldron, Rise! Remains of ruin, take form and countenance, a name to summon by, eyes a fury of compassion. Draw your dusty robe about you, stride the Hudson to the sea, upon, above, below, go silent past rimed ruins of Atlantis and Titanic's fabled shell toward the battlefield of nations. Lift the innocent from the field of restitution, pluck missiles from the sky like flaming blossoms. Let your head be crowned with roses, ribboned, Lady Liberty embodied to the eyes of innocence - to others coarse, unkempt, snarled with blooded thorns, Mother of Vampires. Let the blameless see a unicorn, where others see a lion. Who dare ring History's fatal bell, pave the road to Heaven with the cobblestones of Hell? Robert Hunter

I'm just so old school, someone should shoot me. I like poetry with rhyme and meter. But thought provoking, sir.

Just ain't the same without Jerry.

Jerry? [img]http://www.cnn.com/SHOWBIZ/News/9905/26/showbuzz/springer.jpg[/img] Harken, O viewers, and you shall see The trashiest shock-fest broadcast on TV: Freaks, sluts and morons, all screaming in rage While Jerry, brave Jerry, prods them on from the stage.

I liked it... good imagery.

Jerry Gracia was the man who put the music to Robert Hunters words. It is a vivid image
