    THE SNAKE
    (Oscar Brown Jr.)

    Also recorded by:

    On her way to work one morning
    Down the path along side the lake
    A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake
    His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
    "Poor thing," she cried, "I'll take you in and I'll take care of you"
    "Take me in tender woman
    Take me in, for heaven's sake
    Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake

    She wrapped him all cozy in a comforter of silk
    And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk
    She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived
    She found that pretty snake she'd taken to had bee revived
    "Take me in, tender woman
    Take me in, for heaven's sake
    Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake

    She clutched him to her bosom, "You're so beautiful," she cried
    "But if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have died"
    She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight
    Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite
    "Take me in, tender woman
    Take me in, for heaven's sake
    Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake
    "I saved you," cried the woman
    "And you've bitten me, but why?
    You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die"
    "Oh shut up, silly woman," said the reptile with a grin
    "You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in
    "Take me in, tender woman
    Take me in, for heaven's sake
    Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake

    Gate, you beat me to it.

    So the Joker takes off his mask, revealing his true mask.

    Just a nod of thanks to this site, again, for calling it.

    Jindal took in all the umbrage and disgust and outrage following Katrina, cloaked himself in the mantle of ethics, the mask of "change," decrying the like of Edwards, the mistakes and facile weakness of Roemer….

    …and now look what we have. Animal Farm. Is it Snoball or Napolean who takes to smoking and drinking and all the bad old farmer's vices? Well it matters not, here as said so aptly is the pig at the trough.

    So this is how Jindal becomes Senator. Who knows what doors Alario opens, Casino money for one I'm guessing? Old money, the kind found on EWE's poker table, for sure.

    God this state, our beautifuly, joyous, sad State, is forlorn, doomed and hopeless.

    Is Alario appropriately our de facto governor and jefe del junta since about 1980?

    Bobby JIndal is a joke, the subject of scorn and ridicule among Republicans and Democrats alike. How on earth can you supposedly take on the yoke of "reformer," then support a miscreant, thief like John Alario? Jindal, just resign now. Do us all a favor and move on to whatever greener pastures you have your eye on. Let someone like Jay Dardenne, who has a true record of service to the State, take over. Last one out, turn off the lights!

    Why thank you Finisterre. For me the Jindal ethics exemptions for the Gov's office told me all I needed to know. If you think about it, the relative secrecy makes that particular office all the more valuable compared to the rest.

    Let's see how many rapid fire posts I can get off before quitting time.

    This is a homage to our fellow commentator, FINISTERRE … an insight from a promontory vantage point we all should heed…

    CAPE FINISTERRE is the final destination for many pilgrims on the Way of St. James, the pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Cape Finisterre is about a 90-km walk from Santiago de Compostela. It is a recent tradition for pilgrims to burn their clothes or boots at the end of their journey at Cape Finisterre.

    The origin of the pilgrimage to Finisterre is not certain. However, it is believed to date from pre-Christian times and was possibly associated with Finisterre's status as the "edge of the world". The tradition continued in medieval times, when "hospitals" were established to cater to pilgrims along the route from Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Finisterre

    Personally, I know that The Way is a must spiritual journey …

    Finisterre biography

    FINISTERRE are an Italian progressive rock band that formed in Genoa in April 1993. Their music is an eclectic mix of styles and they have spawned a significant number of offshoots. The original line-up consisted of Fabio Zuffanti (bass, vocals), Stefano Marelli (guitars, vocals), Boris Valle (keyboards), Marco Cavani (drums) and Sergio Grace (flute). During the summer of 1993 they performed their first concerts, then signed to Mellow Records in June 1994. They released their self-titled debut album, widely regarded as a classic of modern Italian symphonic progressive music, in January of the following year.

    Cavani and Grace subsequently quit the band during 1995. Along with their replacements, Francesca Biagini (flute) and Marcelo Mazzocchi (drums), FINISTERRE produced their second and arguably best album ''In Limine'' (1996). This is a radical and diverse work comprised of classical, jazz, folk, avant-garde and even electronic influences. Mazzocchi then left to be replaced by Andrea Orlando, the band's third drummer in as many years. Biagini also exited but original flautist Sergio Grace filled in for the group's appearance at the ProgDay 1997 festival in North Carolina. Later in 1997 they performed concerts in Italy and France, followed by further French gigs during 1998 that resulted in their first live album ''Live – Ai Margini Della Terra Fertile''. They then signed to Iridea Records and released their third studio album ''In Ogni Luogo'', which has a fairly modern sound and contains some guest female vocals.

    The year 2000 witnessed further live activity by the group in Italy and Spain, singer Raffaella Callea joined, and ''Live At ProgDay 1997'' saw its release in a limited edition of 500 copies for Proglodite Records. Their third live album, ''Storybook'' (MoonJune Records), features the same recording with the addition of their cover of the PFM classic ''Altaloma''. After a 10-date tour of Mexico in 2001, the band took an extended break to allow the members to pursue other musical projects, such as LAZONA and LA MASCHERA DI CERA. Zuffanti had already been involved in projects outwith FINISTERRE since the 1990s and, under the name of HOSTSONATEN, had released a string of what were basically solo albums. After another split in 2007, several members formed ROHMER and released an album of the same name in 2008.

    Some of Zuffanti's solo works feature on FINISTERRE'S ''Harmony Of The Spheres'' (2002), a compilation of previously unre…read more

    Finisterre official website … here’s a link to hear some of their tracks … http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=106

    Galacian … of course … I love it … very similar to 10,000 Maniacs (French Canadian) who produced the soundtrack for David Lynch’s classic movie … “FIRE WALK WITH ME”…

    Thank you Finisterre … for much more memories I had savored than I ever realized …
