Pacing the Cage


Talking about wearing out my Discover card yesterday reminded me of the Bruce Cockburn song, Pacing the Cage (though I’m partial to the Jimmy Buffett version myself). There’s a melancholy to it that I can relate to.

“I’ve proven who I am so many times
The magnetic strip’s worn thin”

“I never knew what you all wanted
So I gave you everything”
