    Mad at the Microbes

    Mad at the Microbes

    There's a certain amount of anger here. The economy is shattered by a bug. You and I are out of a job. It was the first of the month days ago. Companionship and meeting with the fam is out of the question. So you look for solace, and start searching for blues songs that express how you feel, which is mad at the impartial nature of Mother Nature, who you've screwed so many times without paying her back, that she's balancing the scales by reducing your numbers.

    In my book, this is a true existential threat. It always makes me fearful and mad to see the microbes winning.

    I know that it's evil
    I know that it's got to be
    I know I ain't doing much
    Doing nothing means a lot to me
    Living on a shoe string
    A fifty cent millionaire
    Open to charity
    Rock 'n' roller welfare

    Sitting in my Cadillac
    Listening to my radio
    Suzy baby get on in
    Tell me where she want to go
    I'm living in a nightmare
    She's looking like a wet dream
    I got myself a Cadillac
    But I can't afford the gasoline

    [Chorus]:
    I've got holes in my shoes
    And I'm way overdue
    Down payment blues

    Get myself a steady job
    Some responsibility
    Can't even feed my cat
    On social security
    Hiding from the rent man
    Oh it makes me want to cry
    Sheriff knocking on my door
    Ain't it funny how the time flies

    Sitting on my sailing boat
    Sipping off my champagne
    Suzy baby all at sea
    Say she want to come again
    Feeling like a paper cup
    Floating down a storm drain
    Got myself a sailing boat
    But I can't afford a drop of rain

    Now Behind Mask

    We watch the latest news, pay attention to the increasing numbers, and feel the noose tightening around our necks.

    I hope you all take care of yourselves and stay well. Worried about US. Corona seems to have been left to the care of local governors and majors.
