Before hurricane Harvey hit Houston, I was commiserating about the decline of America’s work ethic and the rise of isolationism in our attitudes. Violence I saw (in Charlottesville and San Francisco) conjured up images of bloody revolutions we have seen against dictatorships in less affluent countries. I wrote a song. I finished recording last night. I hope you enjoy “Third World”.
Be aware, this is just a satirical wake-up call. It’s not a prediction of what will be, but a warning against a possible outcome if we fail to arise. The good people of Houston are right now arising to help one another and are being joined by many fine Americans from across Texas and the nation. Let’s keep the attitude once we get past the trauma. Why wait for another catastrophe to demand it?
