    That's beautiful, Elvir, I love it!

    "I just smile smashed." - That line is powerful.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Welcome back Elvir!

    Blues For My Ex-baby

    And I will never go back
    To my home town
    No one is waiting for me there
    And all faces are long gone from my memory
    And their names are long gone too
    Only at times, in winter
    I remember you
    You, my former love
    Some old sentiments
    Something whispers in my heart and I know
    That I’m all alone in this world
    Even if I see you again
    What could I tell you about myself?
    Except that I met many people
    And that no one was my friend
    And that I was
    Hungry and famous and cheerful and lachrymose
    And pathetic
    And that many women have kissed me
    But I didn’t love any of those
    Something whispers in my heart and I know
    That I’m all alone in this world


    My former love, my former baby
    Former love
    My love
    And now, I’m a tired, old man now
    Although I look so young,

    And I will never go back
    To my home town...

    Elvir, thanks, I can really identify with what you're saying there.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul

    Democracy is a good thing, but for a smart human society. Today it is an excuse for unacceptable, violent behavior and as a justification for bad behavior and actions. My country has emerged from the hard, bloody war 25 years ago and has not yet recovered thanks to the dose of incompetent or undecided politicians. As a "cream on top of a cake", more than half a year, the state has been the gathering place for illegal immigrants from Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. I realize that these people are fleeing from poverty, misery, war, but they need to understand that each country has its own habits of living, culture, tradition, norms of behavior. But no, these people care just the rules they bring. My city has about 50,000 inhabitants, and so far it has received over 5,000 immigrants by night, mostly overnight. My fellow citizens first looked at them with empathy, gave them clothes, shoes, as a help, some even accommodations. The Red Cross turned on and provided all available resources, health care provided free services ... the result is that even worse more, they have become violent, they move in groups of 7-10, aged 16-30 years, stealing in stores, mostly alcohol, sweets, clothes and wardrobe out of the yard, break into temporary abandoned houses, and there make wreckage, there are several armed robberies, robbers by knives, rape attempts, and motor vehicle burglaries. In addition, several car abduction attempts and other forms of violence have been reported.
    The police are doing what they can but they are coming every day more and more because the border is long and difficult to control just every yard of the border. They all say over the day that they do not want to stay here but they want to go to Europe, mostly to Germany, and overnight make real problems and undermine citizens' safety. I do not know who would like to have such people for neighbors? In the evening the streets are almost empty, the tourist season has collapsed, people are afraid of walking late, and those who return late at night are having a great fear of conflict. The law prohibits the possession of any weapon and does not allow the use of any kind of weapon or force in order to defend breaking into house, property, so everything is very complicated and very bad.
    In the afternoon I hardly get upset, can't sleep and in the morning I go to work tired, nervous, and very upset I wait for the next night.
    If it's a New Order, I can not say I'm thrilled, on the contrary. This is the sunset of civilization, culture, all positive. Poor and horrible.

    I'm with you on that Elvir because (ultimately) they want to get to my back yard too.

    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
