Pulpdiddys Permutations Closed Sunday – Sort of

Pulpdiddys Permutations is closed Sunday – sort of.  I don’t post a new column on Sunday because my political and social readings are much more inconsistent on that day so I give my readers and myself a break.  Recharge city.  For the past few years I’ve posted the same or similar column on Sunday about my writing goals and process and the purpose of Pulpdiddys Permutations.  To find those columns please use the Search Engine on the site or just scroll down.  The columns are in a calendar order.

In addition to including this introductory note on Sunday from here on I think I’ll include a few words from a favorite writer or musician.  The words may be new or old.  They may be cynical or profound or simply beautiful (though nothing is more complex than the admiration or the ownership of any kind of beauty.)  Whatever strikes me on Sunday morning.  This week it is a decades old song by Alan Price from the soundtrack of the movie O’ Lucky Man.  The one truism hidden beneath all the changes we experience – nothing’s changed.

Poor People Lyrics

Poor people are poor people –
And they don’t understand
A man’s got to make whatever he wants-
And take it with his own hands.

Poor people stay poor people –
And they never get to see
Someone’s got to win in the human race-
If it isn’t you, then it has to be me.

So smile while you’re makin’ it-
Laugh while you’re takin’ it-
Even though you’re fakin’ it-
Nobody’s gonna know.
Nobody’s gonna know.

It’s no use mumbling.
It’s no use grumbling.
Life just isn’t fair-
There’s no easy days
There’s no easy ways
Just get out there and do it!

And sing and they’ll sing your song-
Laugh while you’re getting on-
Smile and they’ll string along-
And nobody’s gonna know.
Nobody’s gonna know.
Nobody’s gonna know.
And nobody’s gonna know.”
