Woody Allen Blues

     The man is funny as hell 
        But is Nazism something to laugh about?
I've run into iit 
   Believe me it wasn't pleasent 
        Remeber the T.S. Eliot line "Oh you who turn to windward 
 Gentile or Jew 
     consider Phlebas who was tall and handsome as you"
  Well I have considered Phlebas 
      and realize the story 
           is going to end 
No one is without fault in Jewish theology 
Even the mightiest of kings 
I'm not without fault 
    Just sent $10 to the Simon Wiesenthal foundation 
Hope it does some good

    Woody Allen is how we see our selves. And nothing is more funny than the truth.
