“Chains are designed for many uses
Chains on tires in snow help you go
Chains on hands and feet are hard to defeat
Chains on anchors hold ships in place …”
(Claude H. Oliver II in Chains)
"Let us drink and sport today;
Ours is not tomorrow.
Love with youth flies swift away,
Age is naught but sorrow."
(J. Gay in Air XXII from The Beggar's Opera)
“Well, the only thing that makes me laugh again
Is a southbound whistle on a southbound train
Every place I wanna go I never can go
Because you know I got the freight train blues
Oh Lord mama, I got them in the bottom of my rambling shoes.”
(Bob Dylan in Freight Train Blues)
