Selling Comparatives & Superlatives

Walking up again towards "Human Life High"
To learn what I am told to be learning;
Who is the strongest
Who is the best
Who holds the aces
The East or the West
This is the crap our children are learning
& then suddenly I feel my eyes burning
Jesus Christ imagine what it must be earning…

Hydra said...

It's a crazy world, doc... But we're all playing the GAME. That's the strange thing...

Em said...

Ola

I reckon its about balance...

David said...

I have always thought that children should be taught to play cooperative games instead of competitive games. Then maybe adults would be more inclined to give their fellow man a hand up instead of a shove to the ground.

juliana said...

Yes, I agree with David. What you teach the children from the beginning affects them when they're adults. And ultimately affects the world we live in.

I read the post once again and the rythm is like "Raging Bull" (by Martin Scorssess) where Robert De Niro is rehearsing this:


I remember those cheers / They still ring in my ears / After years, they remain in my thoughts. / Go to one night / I took off my robe, and what'd I do? I forgot to wear shorts. / I recall every fall / Every hook, every jab / The worst way a guy can get rid of his flab. / As you know, my life wasn't drab. / Though I'd much... Though I'd rather hear you cheer / When you delve... Though I'd rather hear you cheer / When I delve into Shakespeare / "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse", I haven't had a winner in six months.
[he lights a cigar]
Though I'm no Olivier / I would much rather... And though I'm no Olivier / If he fought Sugar Ray / He would say / That the thing ain't the ring, it's the play. / So give me a... stage / Where this bull here can rage / And though I could fight / I'd much rather recite /... that's entertainment.

I get the point but the sad story is that if it is not this, they would be busy learing other rubbish!

Dr O2 said...

Foulla - tnx. As for the file I have not yet succeeded in finding a free MP3 host but I shall get to it today & tomorrow. Guess that'll be good enough. Tnx agn.

Frank - It is nice to improve but life is becoming more like a rcae than a place to improve. We don c the best always winning but there is trickery & deciet just to overcome the problems & finish first. It has become a goal to knock out people :-S

Hydra - well they've fed us too deep with the belief that we don really know of a different path :-S

em - :-) yep

David - yeah that is a great idea. It is always about competing. From the hospital to the graveyard...

Dr O2 said...

Juliana - well said. The childhood lessons are what stick with us throughout life...

moji - well I wish I could but this medical life doesn' really leave much of a space for other activities ;-) tnx for the kind words...

yabco - tnx mate. Nice to C another doctor in the blogworld.

Frank - that was a fantastic piece!! Am up to downloading it...

Behrooz - Well you got me on this agn!!! That is an aspect I hadn't much thought abt!!!
