Being a Character in an Epic Poem

Do you ever have times when you feel so weak, you just want to explode?
explode, and tear this whole town apart, take a knife, and cut this pain from your heart,
til you find somebody itching for something to start?

Me neither.

You mean an "epic poem about losers?"

Best Springsteen description ever. Thank you John Stewart.

Okay, a word of explanation for this post which is surely a bit cryptic to those who are not up on Springsteen. And I hasten to add that Ruth must be exempt from any blame for her Springsteen knowledge. She would probably be free of such low class knowledge if she hadn't married me.

My post quotes from an old Springsteen song, Promised Land. Youtube it sometime. And the wording of the title of this post is a reference to something that Jon Stewart said in his speech in honor of Springsteen at the Kennedy Honors. Youtube it sometime. It's actually kind of funny...funny because it's all too true.
