*HEROES by Jill Sobule
*
*Why are all our heroes so imperfect
*Why do they always bring me down
*Why are all our heroes so imperfect
*The statue in the park has lost his crown
*
*William Faulkner drunk and depressed
*Dorothy Parker mean, drunk and depressed
*And that guy in Seven Years in Tibet turned out to be a nazi
*The founding fathers all had slaves, the explorers slaughtered the braves
*The Old Testament God can be so petty
*
*Paul McCartney jealous of John, even more so now that he's gone
*Dylan was so mean to Donovan in that movie
*Pablo Picasso cruel to his wives
*My favorite poets took their own lives
*Orson Welles peaked at 25, ballooned before our eyes
*And he sold bad wine
*
*Heard Babe Ruth was full of malice
*Lewis Carroll I'm sure did Alice
*Plato in the cave with those very young boys
*TS Elliott hated Jews, FDR didn't save the Jews
*All the French joined the resistance after the war
*Raymond Chandler drunk and depressed
*Tennessee Williams drunk and depressed
*Think I'll just get drunk and depressed
*
*
Be the change you want to see in the world.
