    Bob Dylan, 1989 – Political World

    Political World

    Editor’s note: Today’s posts are for all the sad folks I have had to listen to for most of my adult life who said they couldn’t get past the voice (actually many voices) that this year’s Nobel Laureate for Literature spoke so much truth in. It is also for the illiterate who he never matched what he did early in his career.

    We live in a political world

    Love don't have any place

    We're living in times

    Where men commit crimes

    And crime don't have any face.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Icicles hanging down

    Wedding bells ring

    And angels sing

    Clouds cover up the ground.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Wisdom is thrown in jail

    It rots in a cell

    Is misguided as hell

    Leaving no one to pick up a trail.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Where mercy walks the plank

    Life is in mirrors

    Death disappears

    Up the steps into the nearest bank.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Where courage is a thing of the past

    Houses are haunted

    Children unwanted

    The next day could be your last.

    *

    We live in a political world

    The one we can see and feel

    But there's no one to check

    It's all a stacked deck

    We all know for sure that it's real.

    *

    We live in a political world

    In the cities of lonesome fear

    Little by little

    You turn in the middle

    But you're never sure why you're here.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Under the microscope

    You can travel anywhere

    And hang yourself there

    You always got more than enough rope.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Turning and trashing about

    As soon as you're awake

    You're trained to take

    What looks like the easy way out.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Where peace is not welcome at all

    It's turned away from the door

    To wonder some more

    Or put up against the wall.

    *

    We live in a political world

    Everything is hers and his

    Climb into the frame

    And shout God's name

    But you're never sure what it is.
