The Empress of the Blues

I'm fed up with politics. We seem to be headed for more war, more death, more destruction and there's fuck all we can do about it. When that happens to me, I take measures to slap myself out of the funk. I make some donations to charities and to people like Shakes to remind myself how good I have it. I also listen to great old music. Therefore, almost three minutes of Bessie Smith. I'm going to stuff my head under the faucet and go to a meeting.

Well deserved title aside
sometimes the heart just wants
what the heart wants.
Especially on dreary damp weekends.
