Cheer Up, Everbody!

At least youíre not dead like Philip Larkin, who wrote this in 1978:

Most people know more as they get older;
I give all that the cold shoulder.

I spent my second quarter-century
Losing what I had learnt at university

And refusing to take in what had happened since.
Now I know none of the names in the public prints,

And am starting to give offence by forgetting faces
And swearing Iíve never been in certain places.

It will be worth it if in the end I manage
To blank out whatever it is that is doing the damage.

Then there will be nothing that I know.
My mind will fold into itself, like fields, like snow.

There! Feel better now?

Has anybody seriously thought about what Trump is doing with the Iran deal? There is an almost exact analogy. The US engaged in a multilateral deal with other Allied European nations Now Trump wants to unilaterally cancel the deal. Has anyone thought about the deals Chamberlain made with Hitler? The analogy is exact and Trump is playing the role A. Hitler, has done so in the past, and still does. No you can't trust that guy, identical clones not historically but behaviorally.
Where is Winston, that guy Labor supported even though Winston was a REAL conservative?

Wait, Winston, when he shows up, is going to be representing other parties.
Hitler's clone is ours.
So it goes.
