Lambs to the slaughterhouse
Just two weeks ago I could see how a whole country could take the squares and main streets to celebrate the victory of the national football team, but... what if the government which controls you raises your taxes up to almost double them? What about reducing your salary to its fully extent and now your incomes go back in time for ten or fifteen years? Culture, medicine, education... and most of the social services will be from now onwards only be available to wealthy people, and most of us been considered just numbers made of flesh to feed the machine of greed.
Hard times for live music, for recording music. No hope for musicians in this country... My Jem has bowed his neck today. No notes, no bends, no feeling, just silence, the silence of the lambs taken to the slaughterhouse.
