Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros - Shaktar Donetsk

Its about the people trying to find a new life somewhere and the risk they take to get it." -Joe Strummer



Shaktar Donetsk
by Joe Strummer

Possible chance, storm
Possible chance, gale
Welcome to Britain, in the third Millennium
This is the diary of a Macedonian, Macedonian
He went to Britain in the back of a lorry
"Don't worry, don't worry, don't hurry"
Said the man with the plan
He said, "If you really wanna go
You'll get there in the end"
You really wanna go
Alive or dead my friend
Well, you can levitate you know
Long as the money's good you're in
Or if you really wanna go
You'll get there in the end
He had the woolly scarf of Shaktar Donetsk
Nay, the banner of freedom wrung around his neck
Inherited from his father
One of the Ukraine exiles of Yugoslavia
He said, "You'll get there in the end"
You really wanna go
Alive or dead my friend
Well, you can levitate you know
Long as the money's good you're in
Or if you really wanna go
You'll get there in the end
Yeah, oh, he got a little postcard
Yeah, oh, everybody got a dream
Yeah, oh, he always got it with him
Yeah, oh, it's of a nineteen twenty-five
Red telephone box with Wembley in the background
Them twin tower vandal eye
Will he find a two bar heater
Waitin' for him in two rooms
Above the cut rate telephone anywhere place
He got off the train in Shadwell
Disappeared without trace
He said, "You'll get there in the end"
If you really wanna go
Alive or dead my friend
Well, you can levitate you know
Long as the money's good you're in
Or if you really wanna go
You'll get there in the end
Oiling the grinding city underside
Treating each flake of rust all over Humberside
You know a blocked generator could cut power
To the city system
Well, you'll get there in the end
Alive or dead my friend
You'll get there in the end
Alive or dead my friend
If you really wanna go
You'll get there in the end

Labradorescence

Labradorite looks dull and gray until it is set at an angle causing a peculiar reflection at a submicroscopial level. I placed the mineral in the palm of my gloved hand and turned it until the iridescence known as labradorescence appeared. The photo was taken using an iPhone 12, my son's old phone (he has a new 14). He gave me the 12 to replace my iPhone 6s, just in time for next month's macro-photography contest. The 12 does a better job with macro than do my 6 or my Canon EOS Rebel T3.
