It's the same ol' place . . .

Couldn't resist adding this snippet fron Earth Opera's seminal album of '69 - The Great American Eagle Tradegy . . .

Call out the Border Guards.
The kingdom is crumbling.
The King is in his counting house
Laughing and stumbling.
His armies are extended
Way beyond his shores . . .
And he sends all his lonely boys to die
In his foreign jungle wars.

Like I say, when you look at the Middle East today - some 37 years down the track since this was written - nothing much seems to have changed . . .
