simplest of mysteries

Riddles by Joan Jett (Sinners album 2006)

 

Talkin' heads are talkin'

But listen to what they say

How they sit in judgement

An' claim to know the way

If dreams can be dismembered

An' our worth can be ignored

Need a new direction

Cause this one we can't afford

 

There's bad stuff happening

An' no one does a thing

 

What can I do

What can I say

When they just speak at

Us in riddles

How can this be

Why can't ya see

That they just speak

At us in riddles

 

Got ourselves in trouble

With no relief in sight

Everyday is such a stuggle

Cause they had to pick a fight

 

How can this be happening

Can't we do anything

 

What can I do

What can I say

When they just speak at

Us in riddles

How can this be

Why can't ya see

That they just speak

At us in riddles

 

The peace is the war

The rich are too poor

An' they just speak at us in riddles

How can this be

Why can't ya see

That they just speak at us in riddles

We're stuck right in the middle

 

Clear skies baby

Healthy forests

No Child Left Behind

Wake up people

 

Big Brother is watchin' you

They're takin' all your rights away

Don't claim that you represent me cause

I don't believe a word that ya say

 

What can I do

What can I say

When they just speak at

Us in riddles

How can this be

Why can't ya see

That they just speak

At us in riddles

 

Let's see through the riddles

In honour of www.savebennypark.org/ to fight clandestine plans made by NDG Mayor Michael Applebaum, in a "measly" group of 10, to rezone Benny Park & move a proposed sports center from its original planned site on Benny Farm to the park.

 

The rezoning was done last August while most NDG-ers were on vacation. Still, consultaions were not widely announced and citizens had no vote.

 

I am in favour of having a sports & culture center in NDG, but not at the expense of losing more park space & potentially more later now that the zoning desgnation has been changed. The Save Benny Park group is actively working to take back our democratic rights. Last week Applebaum called citizens who registered for a referendum the "measly 129". I wonder why our mayor, who is a real estate agent, is making a decision about a such a huge green space with such great disdain for his constituents.
