Thank You for Some Kinda Great Depression
Is it the economy?
Is it the atmospheric pressure?
Is it a subject just below the horizon?
Is it a sunken hollow, left by our thumbprint?
Does one kind of depression lead to another kind of depression?
If we make a depression in our environment will it spring back like Jell-O if we lift our finger?
