Free to fly,
Tired of flight;
No land in sight.
Cut your Wings and be Free at last!
Adam Cohen, the son of Leonard Cohen, is a gifted poet and musician in his own right. Here is the song he wrote for his son-a good love song to sing if the world were to end
Charity feeds me one day,
keeps me hungry 364.
You sanctify the Way things Are at my expense:
You feel content for one day’s giving while I starve 364.
I rather you burn your Crescent and Cross (*1)
and starve with me: Then you will see the tyranny of the Way things Are
and the Evil of your Charity:
while I starve in poverty without a today or tomorrow.
Charity is Satan’s cloak:
You presume to give what is not yours.
Foot Note 1: The reference to “You rather burn your Crescent and Cross” is not to be taken literally. Both Christianity and Islam are great religions. The purpose is to invite the reader to ponder on the hypocrisy of those who take the shell and abandon the spirit of their religion. To that extent it is to be taken literally.
