A Time To Be Born; A Time To Die

Pete Seeger has died.

Other places will eulogize him far better than I could here. I’ll just note that it is a certainty that, had there been no Pete Seeger, there would be no Digital Cuttlefish.

    A friend on Facebook mentioned this. My response was: to every thing there is a season. I wonder why we both went there.

    My Rainbow Race, Pete Seeger

    One blue sky above us
    One ocean lapping all our shore
    One earth so green and round
    Who could ask for more
    And because I love you
    I’ll give it one more try
    To show my rainbow race
    It’s too soon to die.

    Some folks want to be like an ostrich,
    Bury their heads in the sand.
    Some hope that plastic dreams
    Can unclench all those greedy hands.
    Some hope to take the easy way:
    Poisons, bombs. They think we need ’em.
    Don’t you know you can’t kill all the unbelievers?
    There’s no shortcut to freedom.

    (Repeat chorus)

    Go tell, go tell all the little children.
    Tell all the mothers and fathers too.
    Now’s our last chance to learn to share
    What’s been given to me and you.

    (Repeat chorus one and a half times)
