The Great Event
It's going to happen very soon.
The great event which will end the horror.
Which will end the sorrow.
Next Tuesday, when the sun goes down, I will play the Moonlight Sonata backwards.
This will reverse the effects of the world's mad plunge into suffering for the last 200 million years.
What a lovely night that would be.
What a sigh of relief, as the senile robins become bright red again,
and the retired nightingales pick up their dusty tails,
and assert the majesty of creation!
--Leonard Cohen 1992
