Rules and Pingback Here

I just love Peter Gabriel one of my favourite songs by him is Here Comes the Flood…. Enough Said.

“Here Comes The Flood”

Lyrics from AToZ

When the night shows
the signals grow on radios
All the strange things
they come and go, as early warnings
Stranded starfish have no place to hide
still waiting for the swollen Easter tide
There’s no point in direction we cannot
even choose a side.

I took the old track
the hollow shoulder, across the waters
On the tall cliffs
they were getting older, sons and daughters
The jaded underworld was riding high
Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky
and as the nail sunk in the cloud, the rain
was warm and soaked the crowd.

Lord, here comes the flood
We’ll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It’ll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you’re running dry.

When the flood calls
You have no home, you have no walls
In the thunder crash
You’re a thousand minds, within a flash
Don’t be afraid to cry at what you see
The actors gone, there’s only you and me
And if we break before the dawn, they’ll
use up what we used to be.

Lord, here comes the flood
We’ll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It’ll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you’re running dry

Just Jot it January. Day 14 Ultimatum.

Here we are Day 14 of Just Jot it January. Today the prompt is brought to us from Itinerary Planner do visit their blog 😀. 

The prompt is Ultimatum. I have notice a slight pattern in my posts this month. It seems subconsciously I making a point, waving a flag for all peoples who are bullied, oppressed or frightened. Yet I am following the Prompts so maybe others are too. I hope I am not being a bore.

Until you finally understand

Life will never be as you planned

Try as you may my word is law

I tell you what to do and what’s more

My way will rule what’s in store

Any rebellion will be quashed

Today is your last chance

Unless to my tune you dance.

Misrule will ensue.
