Let the revolution begin . . .

Here are the lyrics from a song called "Song for the Orca" that I would like to dedicate to my fiesty cat Gergiev. May the cats inherit the earth! Enjoy . . .

This song is for the orca,
Swimmin' 'round in circles at Sea World,
Someday you'll drown the dude with the clip-board,
Someday,

This song is for the gator,
Layin' in the roadside cage in FLA,
You'll tear the cracker to shreds someday,
I'll read about you in USA Today,
And it feels so nice,
That the Lord made this day,
And it feels so right,
To know that justice,
Will have it's say,

This song is for the pitbull,
Covered in the cigarette burns,
Someday you'll find a sweet aorta,
Someday, someday,

This song is for the lion,
Shaved of all his dignity and pride,
One will fall over that railing someday,
I'll see the story on MSNBC,
And it feels so right,
That the Lord let this be,
And it feels so right,
To know that justice does agree,

This song is for the python,
Coiled in the box that does not fit,
Someday you'll crush the air from his lungs,
Someday,

This song is for the ape now,
Staring out through bars with comprehending eyes,
At dull and useless people,
Someday,

This song is for the orca,
Dreaming of the Norway fjord,
With open sores from rubbin' dirty tank walls,
Someday...
