John Prine's Fish and Whistle
Ever since Wednesday's forum I have been thinking about this John Prine's song. I was prompted by the question about forgiving God.:
I been thinking lately about the people I meet
The car wash on the corner and the hole in the street
The way my ankles hurt with shoes on my feet
And I'm wondering if I'm gonna see tomorrow
Father forgive us for what we must do
You forgive us and we'll forgive you
We'll forgive each other till we both turn blue
Then we'll whistle and go fishing in heaven
Fish and whistle, whistle and fish
Eat everything that they put on your dish
And when we get through we'll make a big wish
That we never have to do this again, again, again...
It goes on, but you can look it up if interested. The line that keeps sticking out for me is "Eat everything that they put on your dish." Maybe if we eat everything on our plate we don't carry it around as resentment.
