As The Days Pass, Lulu Thinks, Perhaps They Never Will

Lulu knows anything Dutch is not in fashion now, but this song based on the life of Vincent Van Gogh crossed Lulu's mind as she continues to watch and read the finger pointing by the PM and those from his camp.

In each chorus, McLean says
They would not listen
they did not know how
perhaps they'll listen now

except in the final verse, McLean says
They would not listen
They're not listening still
Perhaps they never will.

Lulu thinks, many of us are hoping that the PM and his camp would understand and listen to the message sent out on March 8th.
But as the days pass, Lulu thinks, perhaps they never will.
Has our country reached "the final verse"?

Sad isnt it?

Hope you enjoy the art of Vincent Van Gogh as much as Lulu did

That's what happen when one is sleeping on the job.

How to figure things out when one is busy counting sheep?

Nice n appropriate video, Lulu, here's one I suggested to Susan last November and included there then :
"We Shall Overcome" - by Diana Ross

I love the song and all Van Gogh drawings. I missed those days I spent in Van Gogh Museum listening to his sad tales. Made me appreciate things before they are gone. It was also a tale of two brothers. VG only sold one painting out of about 900 pieces he painted before committing suicide. BN should listen and stop the blame game. Like the old saying,'Can lift up, Can put down'. His last parting word was...

"La tristesse durera toujours" (French for "the sadness will last forever").

You're quite right, Lulu, those political dinosaurs in the soon-to-be extinct BN are incapable of soul-searching, perhaps because they have long lost their souls? Meanwhile we have this uncomfortable situation in which the BN continues to form the Federal government - which gives them the power to use the as-yet-unabolished ISA to crush Pakatan Rakyat when they find themselves cornered. BN isn't about to initiate any genuine reforms. They can only lick their wounds and attempt to undermine the fledgling state governments at every turn - all the while squirreling away their ill-gotten gains and further impoverishing the country. I've responded to Ong Kian Ming and Oon Yeoh's opinion piece on party-hopping on my blog.
