The lonesome death of Terri Schiavo

In “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll,” Bob Dylan expressed the righteous anger of a witness to justice gone awry. Dylan’s damning refrain has wide application:

You who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears,
Take the rag away from your face.
Now ain’t the time for your tears.

Following the last verse that recites the ultimate miscarriage of justice, Dylan changes the chorus:

You who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears,
Bury the rag deep in your face
For now’s the time for your tears.

Terri Schiavo, RIP.
