The Last Happiness

The last happiness is not looking
at rock videos from the 70s.  Music
you once liked seems wrong when
you have to watch the Guess Who
sing American Woman.  Who are
these hirsute kids pretending to be
tough?  Who are they to lecture
anyone on American women.  I could
write at least two encyclopedia
volumes on American women
if encyclopedias hadn’t been wiped
out by Wikipedia who now asks for
our support .  The music may
be fun, but  “kill the messenger” 
it seems to me  has never been
more appropriate.

Whatever the last happiness is, I am convinced it is different for men and women.
