Cynicism 101

Simon and Garfunkle speak for me today:


I've built walls
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need of friendship
Friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I distain
I am a rock I am an island

Don't talk of love
I've heard the words before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
If I'd never loved I never would have cried
I am a rock I am an island

I have my books
and my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room safe within my womb
I touch no oneand no one touches me
I am a rock I am an island

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries
