Boomer Anthems: The Sound of Silence

Although from a musical standpoint, S&G's version is more...pleasant, overall I prefer Disturbed's anger and defiance. Also, the video is brilliant.

When I was consulting after retirement (20+ years ago), I got some of my best ideas while showering. Should have depreciated that shower and expensed the soap.

Speaking of bathroom inspired songs, here's one inspired by the infamous "schiessenkreuz" at the U of Missouri

Hello feces my old friends
I've come to daub in you again
Seems a medium that I was pinching
Made a Nazi cross without flinching
And a movement that was started in my bowels
Still befouls
Became a sign .. of racists

At 2 AM I shat alone
Art material from my throne
Neath the halo of a bathroom light
I made a symbol that truly did incite
When my nose was stabbed by the stench of a fecal cross
Lunch was lost
Is now the sign .. of racists

And in the morning's light I saw
Ten thousand fraudsters maybe more
Students crying without thinking
Warriors chanting without listening
People made demands that factually didn't square
No one dared
Disturb the theme .. of racists

Stools thought I, you do not know
PC like a cancer grows
Smeared my crap so I might teach you
Faked alarm that I might impeach you
But my words like avian droppings fell
Swallowed by the yells .. of racist

And the warriors howled and brayed
Bout the stinky cross I made
And the pres flashed out this warning
To the lynch mob that was forming
And the guy say the turds of the prophets
Are written on the bathroom stalls
Dorm room walls
And bellowed of the signs ....

Of racists
