Sexting: That Dangerous Supplement

 

 

When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
It’s a wonder
I can think at all
And though my lack of education
Hasn’t hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

(…)

If you took all the girls I knew
When I was single
And brought them all together
for one night
I know they’d never match
my sweet imagination
Everything looks worse
in black and white

Paul Simon, Kodachrome

Paul Simon sings about a lack of education, he went to high school, but the things he learned there was crap. However he can read the writing on the wall, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin, as we know, this is God’s words to the king of Babylon from The Book of Daniel in The Bible. It means that the kingdom’s days are over, the days are numbered, you’re been weight, you’re divided. Overqualified for high school, with capability to interoperate the message, but yet doomed by it, or is Simon Daniel, bringing to light the doom of someone else?

One word in the second verse has been changed

Everything looks worse
in black and white (1973)

Everything looks better
in black and white (1982)

The seeing eye’s black and white, like black on white, like writing text, texting instead of talking, masturbation instead of sex, sex and text – sexting – instead of sex and talking, the first impossible, the latter possible. That dangerous supplement.
