Jen Chapin – Passive People

another day slips away like a baby from a chair

I watch the fall

no one seems to care at all

not at all

another crime joins the line

that stretches all the way to the sea

but I’m glad it didn’t happen to me

not to me

we are passive people

at the end of the day

we let the outrage melt away

it seems that life is so much easier that way

we are passive people

there’s a lot that we can take

our hearts will dry up before they break

no questions asked, just invisible ache

the riches climb dime by dime

so happy that we’ve finally got it made

so the dollars aren’t so evenly sprayed around

but maybe — yes — I think they’ll trickle down

we have heaven-sent good intent

we cry for lonely people at the movies

we feel their pain

we storm the streets but then it starts to rain

it begins to rain

we are passive people

at the end of the day

we let the outrage melt away

it seems that life is so much easier that way

we are passive people

there’s a lot that we can take

our hearts will dry up before they break

no questions asked, just invisible ache

    Yes, sister, but we have eternal pilot lights that fire up when the time comes.

    “eternal pilot lights”

    Cool, gracie!

    Yes, I agree.

    Sister – because Larry would never post my comments on his site, I just want to respond to your comment there.

    “has PUMA given consent to offer their T-shirts for your fund raiser?”

    Donnal,

    Are you suggesting copyright infringement?

    Otherwise, Party Unity My Ass.

    – Larry and his ‘attorney’ have been contacted by Will Bower of PUMA to insist that he not sell PUMA08 shirts. He is not sanctioned or supported by that group.

  4. rosettasister Says:

    Larry’s Tumor,

    First, the name you have chosen for yourself is juvenile and heartless.

    Second, this is a legal issue.

    Will Bower can protest all he wants, but if he hasn’t a legal leg to stand on, then “Party Unity My Ass.”

  5. Larry's Tumor Says:

    I realize that he has no legal recourse, I just think it’s the height of foolishness for Larry to try to co-opt an organization that doesn’t support him. Laughable. The best part is that if the tables were turned, Larry would have sued him with no basis in law.

  6. sisterrosetta Says:

    “if the tables were turned, Larry would have sued him with no basis in law”

    Larry’s Tumor,

    If you are suggesting that Larry has only sued in the past with no basis in law, then I would have to take issue with that.

    Are the three “innocent” bloggers really so innocent?

    Let the courts decide, I haven’t a clue.
