Day 301: We didn’t start the fire, Billy Joel

This song seems strangely appropriate to finish off this week given the incredible scenes we experienced last week with the storming of the US Capitol building by Trump insurrectionists. We are certainly living in history making times but as Billy Joel says “we didn’t start the fire, but we’re trying to fight it” with pretty much zero success. This song, like American Pie is an extended lyrical piece containing the cataloguing of world history verse by verse.
