Again, I am revisiting Donovan's classic song, Season of the Witch about hypocrites, witches who are out to do you harm but who would lead you to believe they have your best interests at heart. Know anyone like that? The time lag is what is most important with these pestilential folks. In other words, if they can get you to believe them for just a moment, a day, a week, a year, two years, an election term, then this gives them ample time to hide the bodies, destroy the evidence, push forth their agenda, "get their ducks in a row," before you sniff out their lies and the carcasses they have left moldering because they have deluded, seduced or lured you away to look in another direction. Meanwhile, the "whole world is watching" America and asking, "What the hell is going on?" It's the season of the witch, folks, the season of the witch, perpetually. And I'm looking for the Light, the whistleblowers, the mavericks, the iconoclasts to restore integrity...the Harriet Tubmans, the Frederick Douglasses whose courage and fortitude bring us "up to the nation our ancestors conceived us to be." Hello? And that is not under the power of witches and warlocks.
Many groups recorded this great song. Some of them are included here...click on the links (above in the concrete poem which should be in the shape of a witch) to see them on Youtube. One rendition is finer than the other, all bringing out the strangeness and duplicity of those who would take power over us and the discernment needed to "pick up every stitch" to know and see what is "goin' on."
