This song by the Sensational Alex Harvey Band has been for years the song I go to in moments of deep sorrow.
I’ve seen stars disappear in a hurry
overdoses in satin and silk
some others who can’t feed their children
’cause they don’t have the money for milk…
There are some folks got nothing to live for
Some folks got nothing to lose
So don’t ask me for pity
No complaints department blues
There is no complaints department
It’s only up to you
In the wake of the last few days of news, it must be stressed. It’s only up to us. We can’t wait for the cavalry. We are the cavalry. We can’t depend on the Democrats, the mainstream media, or the courts. Even if Robert Mueller has the blood that was on Trump’s hands in his possession, it may not be enough.
It is up to us and it always has been but never has it been clearer than right now. Every day feels like a setback but if we push back then we might eventually get America to be what we were told it was when we were children.
