Dark Time

“And then those questions come up.
Like was the Constitution written in invisible ink?
Has everybody here forgotten how to think?
Is this big boat starting to think?

And you thought there were things that had disappeared forever.
Things from the Middle Ages.
Beheadings and hangings and people in cages.
And suddenly they were everywhere
And suddenly they’re alright”

(Laurie Anderson: Dark Time in the Revolution)
