Lie became her

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

It does sounds rather melodramatic, but I will plagiarise some more from Hollywood – “she can’t handle the truth”. Now that’s about right, isn’t it? No exaggeration there. And no surprise.

There is absolutely no truth in the rumour that the following song is sang by the remaining Labor party members at the end of party meetings; and no, the woman singing it is not Trish Crossin.

You made a fool of me,
But them broken dreams have got to end.

Hey, woman, you got the blues,
‘Cause you ain’t got no one else to use.
There’s an open road that leads nowhere,
So just make some miles between here and there.
There’s a hole in my head where the rain comes in.
You took my body and played to win.
Ha, ha, woman, it’s a cryin’ shame,
But you ain’t got nobody else to blame.

Evil woman.
Evil woman.
Evil woman.
Evil woman.

Rolled in from another town,
Hit some gold, too hard to settle down.
But a fool and his money soon go sep’rate ways,
And you found a fool lyin’ in a daze.
Ha, ha, woman, what you gonna do,
You destroyed all the virtues that the Lord gave you.
It’s so good that you’re feelin’ pain,
But you better get your face on board the very next train.

Evil woman.
Evil woman.
Evil woman.
Evil woman.

Evil woman, how you done me wrong,
But now you’re tryin’ to wail a diff’rent song.
Ha, ha, funny, how you broke me up.
You made the wine, now you drink a cup.
I came runnin’ ev’ry time you cried,
Thought I saw love smilin’ in your eyes.
Ha, ha, very nice to know
That you ain’t got no place left to go.

Evil woman.
Evil woman.
Evil woman.
Evil woman.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Are you sure you haven’t changed the lyrics of that song? They fit her perfectly.
