So [livejournal.com profile] anthrochica said:
I am also making my way through a book of Paul Krugman's essays, which is very soothing, in a macabre apocalyptic way, but it's like self-medicating reading, an article before bed, you can't just rush thought that.
To which I responded:
There's a postmodern song in there somewhere. Aw hell, I'll write one:

Krugman and Whiskey
 well it's been a long time since I've left it
 I'm sitting here all alone
 I'm a verbose but lonely pundit
 don't got a telephone

 [chorus]
   read Krugman and whiskey [beat, beat]
   there's no other way to sleep
   read Krugman and whiskey [beat, beat]
   it beats countin sheep

 there ain't nothing for it
 there ain't no way to tell
 if the Prez he sez
 just what he means
 or if he don't -- we're goin straight to hell

  read Krugman and whiskey
  and don't apologize
  read Krugman and whiskey
  brings tears to your eyes

  read Krugman and whiskey
  let it go to your head
  read Krugman and whiskey
  and take yourself to bed

 [instrumental, and out]

thank you. thankyouverahmuch.
apologies extended to both Elvis and Johnny Cash.

I would definitely want the instrumental if I were privileged to hear it. Might even be able to provide a Kinshasa-produced guitar :)
