Song of the Day – “The Obscenity Prayer (Give It to Me)” – Rodney Crowell

Let the gangsters rule the street
While teachers try to make ends meet
I despise all bleeding hearts
I don’t patronize the arts

Rodney Crowell’s blistering 2005 song, found on the This Is Americana, Vol. 2 collection, seems particularly appropriate this week. The narrator has a view I’ve seen way too often this week.

I can’t help the ones in need
I’ve got my own mouth to feed
