VERSE. Allen Ginsberg: Ballad of the Skeletons

I hadn’t seen Ginsberg’s/McCartney’s/Van Sant’s Ballad of the Skeletons until recently. Though much progress has been made since 1996, it’s one of those sublime reminders that the struggle with racism, gay rights, war, sexism, environmentalism, poverty, disease, political corruption, censorship, and media exploitation continues today, and still strongly requires our collective energy and awareness in order to keep improving the quality of life for all living things.
