Acts of ...

Lyrics copyright 1998 by Joel Polowin

Two quick riffs on Cat Faber's "Acts of Creation"...

Written in "honour" of a salescritter at my former employer:

Though you deal in smoke and mirrors 'cause you work in marketing
You are not completely hopeless if you follow what I sing
There's a kind of fabrication that all honest folk despise
When your "act of creation" is a pack of lies

Written in honour of me:

You can tell it on the mountain, in the valley far below
On the plains or down the river or where'er your feet may go
You can spend your whole life wandering rather than confess
That your sense of direction is a hopeless mess...
