2018 Tint desk Entry: Holy Water #Resist
Me and deadlines are not BFF's. But for the 2nd year in a row I was able to get my S##!T together and put a submission for the NPR.Tiny Desk Contest. So yeah for me.
Holy Water was written back in January of 2017 (pause to think about that) but it was always been more about the bigger picture of cognitive dissonance than the widespread example of it that I see in politics.
I'm a Shakespeare nerd as well so I love the idea of blood stains on the king that cannot be washed away.
if there is blood on your hands, then there is blood on the ground.
if there is blood on the ground, then there is blood in the water
if there is blood on the water then there is blood in the root
if there is blood on the root, then there is blood in the fruit
you can give me poison then say it's holy water
you cant just cover my eyes and say "just believe"
you spit these words on me like they are sweet and soothing
but I know that you are lying
cuz yo lips keep moving
