Blessed are the Meek
In the song Blessed, by Simon and Garfunkle, the concept of the undeserving being blessed is graphically portrayed: “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit. . Blessed are the sat upon, spat upon, ratted on, O lord, why have you forsaken me? . . . Blessed are the meth drinkers, pot sellers, illusion dwellers. O lord, why have you forsaken me? . . . Blessed are the penny rookers, cheap hookers, groovy lookers.
O lord, why have you forsaken me? I have tended my own garden, Much too long.”
