Leonard Cohen

7 10 2011

Leonard Cohen is one of my favourite public figures. He is a good poet. A so-so writer. A wonderful song writer. A better comedian. I think he always aspired to be Hank Williams. Or Lord Athol Layton. When he lands in a city it is like the fleet has landed. Smart people lock their daughters away. What people don’t realize is that he’s a bit of a dope. And folks don’t like to hear that. Especially women. They want to idolize him. And that’s what he is. An idol. By choice. He is a fraud. A Canadian wonder. Like Niagara Falls. Surrounded by cheap hotels. And lovers who had to get married.
