Trump Victory Kills Leonard Cohen

So sad. We've lost one of the great poets of our time.

Singer-Songwriter Leonard Cohen Dies at 82

Cohen's last album - You Want It Darker - seems to have predicted this election. Dark days ahead indeed.

R.I.P. Field Commander Cohen
Give me back my broken night
my mirrored room, my secret life
it's lonely here,
there's no one left to torture
Give me absolute control
over every living soul
And lie beside me, baby,
that's an order!
Give me crack and anal sex
Take the only tree that's left
and stuff it up the hole
in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
give me Stalin and St Paul
I've seen the future, brother:
it is murder. *
