Our times.

Yesterday I sent out two mass emails. One was the link to the latest video/political satire by Paris Hilton. Here it is:

I sent it to 6 friends and had two of them emailed me back instantly with their comments.

Then I sent out a poem by William Blake to maybe 20 people. Here it is:

May God us keep
From single vision and Newton’s sleep!

In every cry of every Man,
In every infant’s cry of fear,
In every voice, in every ban,
The mind-forg’d manacles I hear.

Poetry fetter’d Fetters the Human Race.
Nations are Destroy’d or Flourish in proportion as
Their Poetry Painting and Music are Destroy’d or Flourish.

Art Degraded Imagination Denied
War Governed the Nations.

I didn’t get a response at all.
What exactly does it say?
