Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Imagine take two

With apologies to John Lennon, who was a great singer but had his politics all wrong. Updated



Imagine no abortion
It's easy if you try
Nobody killing their own infants
Before they ever hear them cry
Imagine all the children
Given a chance to breathe

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will see freedom

Imagine no racism
I wonder if you can
A color blind society
And brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Seeing past the color of their skin

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will see freedom

Imagine life in Heaven
It isn't all that odd
Hell invisible below us
Around us the glory of God
Imagine all the people
Singing in harmony

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will see freedom

Imagine more democracies
It isn't hard to do
No one discriminating
Against Christian or Jew
Imagine all the people
Free to speak their minds

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will see freedom

Imagine no communism
I wonder if you can
All free to give to charity
To build a team of man
Imagine all the people
Living like nobility

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will see freedom

Imagine there's no poverty
To trap us in despair
No hole too deep to escape from
With know-how, will and care
Imagine all the people
Rising with the tide

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will see freedom

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.
