Neat. You must have a great deal of patience.

Mine is running short.

Tell Prissy...what shall prevail, man or law?

Cancion de Silvio Rodriguez
Peligro - Es Communist de Cuba

Sueno Con Serpiente

"Hay hombres que luchan un día y son buenos.
Hay otros que luchan un año y son mejores.
Hay quienes luchan muchos años y son muy buenos.
Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida:
Esos son los imprescindibles".
-Bertolt Brecht

Sueño con serpientes,
con serpientes de mar,
con cierto mar Ay!
de serpientes, sueño yo.

Largas, transparentes y en sus barrigas llevan
lo que puedan arrebatarle al amor.

¡Oh!
La mato y aparece otra mayor
¡Oh! con mucho más infierno en digestión.

No quepo en su boca me trata de tragar
pero se atora con un trébol de mi sien
creo que está loca le doy de masticar una paloma
y la enveneno de mi bien.

¡Oh! La mato...

Esta al fin me engulle
y mientras por su estomago paseo
voy pensando en que vendrá
pero se destruye
cuando llego a su estomago
y planteo con un verso una verdad.

¡Oh!
La mato y aparece una mayor
¡Oh!
con mucho mas infierno
en digestión.
La mato y aparece una mayor
¡Oooooooh!

Well the white house is full of serpents so I just might get one from there. Whats really going on in that head of your anyway? I feel like you know something I don't know or your about to indict another serpent. Like the rest of the angles I'll just have to wait and see.

I think the serpent represents all the snakes in the world (besides the administration) who think the dollar can buy off people or their silence. By the way, I did interpret La Vida Loca's comment. You can use the website: www.freetranslation.com. Here is the interpretation in English. Neat Origami!:

Cancion of Silvio Rodriguez Danger - Is Communist of Cuba

I sound With Snake

"There are men that fight a day and they are good. There are other that fight a year and they are better. There is who they fight many years and they are very good. But there is the ones that fight all the life: Those are the indispensable". -Bertolt Brecht

Dream with snakes, with snakes of sea, with certain sea Oh! Of snakes, dream I.

Long, transparent and in their bellies they carry what can snatch him al love.

Oh! I kill it and another greater one appears ¡Oh! with a lot more hell in digestion.

I do not fit in his mouth tries me to swallow but is blocked with a cloverleaf of my temple I believe that is
lunatic I give him to chew a dove and I poison it of my well.

Oh! I kill it..

This al end devours me and while by its I upset walk I go thinking about that will come but is destroyed when
I arrive at its I upset and plant with a verse a truth.

Oh! I kill it and a greater one appears ¡Oh! With a lot but hell in digestion. I kill it and a greater one
appears ¡Oooooooh!

Patrick,
Anonymous translated pretty well by the site but the tranlation sites often do word for word translation without the feeling for the more sumbolic meaning. It's a beautiful song by Silvio Rodriguez and also sung by the wonderful Mercedes Sosa. Both versions start out with the quote from Bertolt Brecht - (he wrote the 3-Penny Opera with Kurt Veill - the Mack the Knife Song you've probably heard))
Basically the songs says, you can kill the evil 'serpent" but bigger then appears - you can kill it with truth but you know another will appear again more powerful so it is the fight of one's life but the only one worth fighting for - good over evil. I'm not so pessimistic though. I should be given what is happening inthe world, our country, the value of things and money over our fraternity with each other and all living beings - except human sepents of course.

You DA MAN! Time magazine has an article asking former Men of the Year who the think should be this year's Man of the Year. ("Patrick! Patrick! He's our man! If he can't do it ...!")

"JAMES LOVELL 1968 One of three Apollo 8 astronauts, pioneers on the epic quest for the moon

I suggest special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. In this age of cover-ups, political intrigue, corporate greed and not knowing whom to believe, it is refreshing to see a person who searches for and uncovers misdeeds, unencumbered by any partisanship."

I'm starting to think they based the character Mulder from the X-files on you..!

I'm from the Netherlands myself and wish we had someone like you over here. Thanks for being an inspiration.

I've just been on the HuffPo. It would seem that you are about to be deluged with petitions to investigate all sorts of misuse from every nook and cranny.....sure'in Mr. Fitzgerald, would they be lookin' for another St. Paddy....this time to be drivin' the snakes out of Washington. I'm thinkin' the snake is quite "brilliant" as the Irish would say.
