I was reminded today of Dar Williams' "The Pointless, Yet Poignant, Crisis Of A Co-Ed" (what a great title!). Check out the opening stanza:
I'm not a leader, I'm not a left-wing rhetoric mobilizing force of one,I like the whole song, but it also contains one of my favorite lines ever written:
But there was a time way back, many years ago in college, don't laugh,
But I thought I was a radical, I ran the Hemp Liberation League with my boyfriend,
It was true love, with a common cause and besides that, he was a Sagittarius.
I am older now, I know the rise and gradual fall of a daily victory.
