THE CUCKOLD'S SONG (ACHE FOR MY OCEAN)


Dear Leonard, I think I adore you more than any of the gentlemen I have encountered in real life.

These words have been going through my head, perhaps because of the alchemy attached to the ending.

P.S. My brother took the above photo. A wave of homesickness washes over me as I remember everything I've forgotten about my Island.

The Cuckold's Song - By Leonard Cohen

If this looks like a poem
I might as well warn you at the beginning
that it's not meant to be one.
I don't want to turn anything into poetry.
I know all about her part in it
but I'm not concerned with that right now.
This is between you and me.
Personally I don't give a damn who led who on:
in fact I wonder if I give a damn at all.
But a man's got to say something.
Anyhow you fed her 5 MacKewan Ales,
took her to your room, put the right records on,
and in an hour or two it was done.
I know all about passion and honour
but unfortunately this had really nothing to do with either:
oh there was passion I'm only too sure
and even a little honour
but the important thing was to cuckold Leonard Cohen.
Hell, I might just as well address this to the both of you:
I haven't time to write anything else.
I've got to say my prayers.
I've got to wait by the window.
I repeat: the important thing was to cuckold Leonard Cohen.
I like that line because it's got my name in it.
What really makes me sick
is that everything goes on as it went before:
I'm still a sort of friend,
I'm still a sort of lover.
But not for long:
that's why I'm telling this to the two of you.
The fact is I'm turning to gold, turning to gold.
It's a long process, they say,
it happens in stages.
This is to inform you that I've already turned to clay.

During the markup to Domicile Result 2267, the tabulation proposing online gambling regulation, contestant Spencer Bachus repeatedly referred to an article in the Orlando Sentinel as heralding the incipient dangers of Internet gaming. Bachus said the paper bemoaned the decoy Internet cafes posed to children, and argued this meant accepting online casinos means subjecting kids to risk.

Bachus repeated the citation a mass of times during the execution of the colloquy alongside the Legislature Pecuniary Services Cabinet, as if he had discovered a spiritedly kernel of act gaming proponents could not refute nor digest. But the Alabama Republican had either accidentally or pointedly muddied the dampen with misleading information.
