John Gorka's, "Look the Other Way"
The Lyrics:
We have so much in common, so much that should unite us
But every time we look up, there's somebody new to divide us
Separate and conquer, all for the touch of Midas
And it's a lonely rancor, pour on the fuel to incite us
Who They Mention:
mythological King Midas

The Lyrics:
I was born by a Kerouac stream
Under Eisenhower skies
They saw freedom as a big idea
Now it was right before my eyes

They said Jack helped to build the Pentagon
And Ike built the Interstate that we are off and on
I see a penny and I pick it up
99 more and I have a buck
Abe you were born in old Kentuck'
But we still miss you here
Who They Mention:
Jack Kerouac
President Eisenhower
President Jack Kennedy
President Abraham Lincoln
