Am I Blogging Now?

A blog about writing, reading, art, and history

And now for something completely different…

It amazes me sometimes the weird crap that comes to my mind. I wrote this down several months ago and ran across it just this morning. If I remember, I was mowing the yard when I thought it up. Here’s the Beach Boys singing about the fall of the Roman Empire:

[Chorus]
Bar-bar-bar-barbarian
Bar-bar-bar-barbarian
Bar-bar-bar-barbarian
Bar-bar-iaaaan, don’t take my laaaand
Bar-bar-iaaaan, don’t take my laaaand
You got me runnin’ and a-goin’,
Screamin’ and a-fleein’, barbarian
Bar-bar-barbarian

Fled back to France
Lookin’ for Ro-mans
Saw barbarians and I thought I wet my pants, barbarians
Bar-bar-bar-barbarian

[Chorus]

Saw Visigoths
Saw Saxon mobs
Saw Ostrogoths and I knew that all was lost, barbarians
Bar-bar-bar-barbarian

[Chorus]

I really worry about how my brain works sometimes.
