“Desolation Row” is stuck in a loop in my head. If anything describes the atomization and terror of late-empire Trump capitalism…
At midnight all the agents and the superhuman crew
Come out and round up everyone that knows more than they do
Then they bring them to the factory where the heart-attack machine
Is strapped across their shoulders and then the kerosene
Is brought down from the castles by insurance men who go
Check to see that nobody is escaping to Desolation Row
Anyway, I did a little search to see if anybody had written about the song recently, and, by God, I found the worst thing ever written.
