[Powderworks] Oils Fit

After watching the presidential address last night, I got out my guitar and 
started playing 'Put Down That Weapon.'  I didn't even realize that I was 
playing it until I was about half way through the song, it was just the 
first song that my fingers started playing.  The line that stands out to me 
is "and it happens to be an emergency."


'Put down that weapon or we'll all be gone,
I must know something to know it's so wrong'

Greetings Fellow Workers of the World,

Some of us have been sharing how the Oils have surfaced in surprising and 
almost mystical ways during the day to day living out of our lives. Given 
the current crisis, the Oils seem to speak louder than ever and, as usual, 
directly to the heart of the matter. So here's a question:

Which Oils song seems most relevant to the drama unfolding in the Cradle of 
Western Civilization?

I find myself humming "KOSCIUSKO" lately. "Call off the ultimatum until 
yesterday" and "No stranger to brutality...no end to the hostility..." and 
especially "older than Kosciusko" really resonate. There are a score or more 
other tunes, but KOS gets my vote for the most relevant in light of last 
night's presidential address.

Please, no need to comment on your own hawk or dove orientation (or anybody 
else's)  just what you hear the songs saying.   :)
