Sarah Palin speaks about David Bowie

The first part of the reading will offer a literary appraisal of David Bowie through Palin’s thinking (she lent the Radiant Elephant her Brain for just a few minutes). This will be followed by a new version of Modern Love .

Hiiii y’all, u ready for some literature talky talky ‘bout Boowie?  U Diamond Dog Scary oxygen Creeps thinking hunky dory life on Mars is better than in America! U thought I’m shying way from literati those bunch of banana creepers who struggle to make nonsense out of a country such as great as ours! Well, people, Bowie wasn’t ‘merican but neither was Byron or Winston Churchill! U know, Bowie struggled cause his name was Jones or sumptin and so he took the name of Jim Bowie, OUR AMERICAN HERO and guess what? People listening, not listening, just picking your noses he go-zes and writes Scary Monsters, ya ya know, “I’ve never done good things, I’ve never done bad things, I never done anything out of the blue” I bet u didn't know I knew that one so he goes dressed in lipstick and this video u know like he’s in water up and into his chest and walking but taking I mean singing and the water up to hear but going down slowly I say give the guy a lifesaver like he’s gonna drown! But Bowie, he no trapper, he not from Alaska where I come from and can float in a swim hole in Alaska, ha ha! git it! ha ha! But that’s not it,it goes, 
Mom always said, to get things done, you better not mess with Major Tom, and like Messssed up! this become so dam famous I’ve been rolling in white bear butter floundering up seawalls ever since! And so they walk off into the sunset -in this video and all and then I’m thinking but not pondering that Bowie and Byron both have a B in their name and Byron today would be 228 years and five days but Bowie much younger and they both from London and Byron lived near the Palladium where Bowie played in 1969 and he played but some say tuned or zoned out too, he smashed up with Space Oddity, Wow! Odd u call it? Felling like a marshmallow only I’m just sooo proud here to tell you that Princess Margeret of Snowdon -not Edward but the other one- well he I mean she fell in love with Captain Townshend who, who had nothing to do with the WHO because he flew RAF Hurricane during WWII and shot down a German Heinkel 111 —give a hand to the man everybody (clap, clap, clap) So you know Byron was a fighter and so was Bowie and his mother Catherine was taking to the bottle going gulp a gulp but Byron felt no love but Bowie and his father wasn’t drinking only he did drugs later and Captain Mad Jack was abusive back, back in the 18th century so his wife kept drinking -not Bowie- and she’s like going through moooood swings and her boy, u know, Byron? well listen he goes gay with this dude Thomas and he writes these lines,

Ah! Sure some stronger impulse vibrates here,
Which whispers friendship will be doubly dear
To one, who thus for kindred hearts must roam,
And seek abroad, the love denied at home.

People, he -Byron- writes this tutti fruity outta closet love lines could get his head chopped off u know at that time no kaMart, not Target, no AR M15s nothing so he falls in love and then David Bowie he writes Modern love not the same day but maybe 2 centuries later and here it is only it’s been tweaked a little to make it more or less squiggable because love is a big subject and u know that so here, ha ha, it goes:




Modern Love by Byron, Bowie and Lang.

I know when to go out
And when to stay in
Thy cheek is pale with thought, but not from woe,
And yet so lovely, that if Mirth could flush 
I’d sinn

I catch a paper boy  (high pitch)
And dazzle at his deep-blue eyes

But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind

And my soul of melancholy Gentleness 
Gleams like a Seraph from the sky descending,

But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try


There's no sign of life
Above all pain, pitying  distress; 
At once such majesty sweetness blending, 
I worship more, but cannot love thee less.

It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave hallelujah 
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for starry skies

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) Which heaven’s gaudy day denies me

(Modern love) gets me to the church on time

(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) Soft as the last drops round Heaven's party

(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) tell of days in goodness spent,

(God and man) no religion
(God and man) A heart whose love is innocent! 
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for
(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) Which heaven’s gaudy day denies me
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) Soft as the last drops round Heaven's party

(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confessions
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) don't believe in modern love
