Rob Schackne #302 - Pascha


Moveable feast
clipping the church
it’s about time

passing over like a hymn
death swallowed up
in victory

keep a clear head
I'll sing you a song
look back down 
bombed church
Birmingham Sunday
a choir sings of freedom
better days ahead

never bothered god
the sunsets 
and the misery
better sing along

  1. This damn thing presumes that you'll know what I know. Funny. Lord. Alabama 1963. Birmingham Sunday. (I was 10 years old. I knew nothing.) Song written by the great Richard Farina. Recorded by the great Joan Baez. More recently covered by the great Rhiannon Giddens. Can we ever say we're sorry?
