We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
It's the season of empty heads. The airwaves are filled with half-truths and outright falsehoods, all in service of a political process that relies on emotional reasoning and not consideration of hard fact.
And they find fertile ground.
We would be better served if the millions of dollars spent fell to the earth as dead leaves.
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Quotes in italics from T. S. Eliot - The Hollow Men
The rather alarming photograph is one I took of a Halloween pumpkin after four months of exposure to the St. Louis winter.
