atticus wrote:Was it Paul Simon who wrote that the words of the prophets are written on the side of a bus?
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”
It's a song from the days of the hippies, not a political policy. The deeper and more profound such words are, especially if poetic, the more likely they are to be meaningless bullshit, intended only to seem deep and profound for people incapable of understanding reality. Not you, of course.
