Don Meixner Hey- Am I the only one out there? (39) RE: Hey- Am I the only one out there? 06 Mar 99


Yes there are. They are in all the usual places. Lurking among us and going about everyday life like normal folks. But some thing gives them away to those of us who know where to look and listen. A young women will be heard humming " Diamonds and Rust" in a laundramat or a guy behind the counter at Micky D's will be caught whistling " Roll on Columbia" or "American Pie" and their cover will be blown. As they take the ridicule of their peers another young man or woman will have seen and heard it all and they will wait. When the time is right the eavesdroppers will contact the hidden folkies and as them to join their secret cabals. Kids who meet at night in secret places and play accoustic intruments without picks and trade songs of love and death and heroic actions.

Yes Sarah, they are out there. Look and listen.

Show me a prison, show me a jail,

Show me a prisoner who's face is growing pale,

And I'll show you a young man with so many reasons why,

There but for fortune may go you, or I.

Don Meixner
