#emergency2012 jethro tull: "your wise men don't know how it feels/to be thick as a brick"

from the album thick as a brick, 1972

"so! where the hell was biggles when you need him last saturday?
and where were all the sportsmen who always pulled you through?
they're all resting down in cornwall
writing up their memoirs for a paper-back edition
of the boy scout manual."

indeed, where were the superheroes? the cricket stars? why did all of them, including the jewel of india, say precisely nothing about the murder of freedom of expression?

your heroes, folks, have feet of clay.
