Gil Scott-Heron — “A junkie walking through the twilight”   Leave a comment

This post is from May 2011 and, for some strange reason, never has had any views. I love the words, rhythm, and soul of Gil’s music.

“The Constitution, a noble piece of paper would free society,
It struggled but then died in vain
And now Democracy is ragtime on the corner
Hoping for rain
It’s been hoping for some rain.”

Yes, we keep hoping for some rain in a desert of despair!

 “a genius and a junkie.”
. . . more.

. . . at least he lived 62 years. I love this man of feeling, his words his soulful voice!
