If I had a hammer - my social consciousness



Another blast from the past.  This song is made popular by Peter, Paul, and Mary.

 
That's what I meant when I said" "If need be, I'll rather be the hammer than the nail."

Sometimes I do wonder, if I were in my twenties in the 50s or 60s, I would probably be in politics......Merdeka!   And where would I be today? Exiled overseas or retired as the elderly man of leisure in Singapore?

Below is the original singer - Pete Seeger. He's a social activist fighting for the "small guy". For his passion, he was branded as a "communist".  He's not the first, nor will be the last artiste to suffer for his craft and beliefs.
