THE next time you’re feeling creatively stuck, or like your work isn’t good enough, or it used to be good but you’ll never write anything decent ever again, just remember that Bob Dylan is universally acknowledged as one of history’s greatest musical lyricists, and he wrote these lyrics:
“We got you for the motel job and we’re talkin’ to your friend Bello
Now you don’t wanta have to go back to jail, be a nice fellow
You’ll be doin’ society a favor
That sonofabitch is brave and gettin’ braver
We want to put his ass in stir
We want to pin this triple murder on him,
He ain’t no Gentleman Jim…”
…in a song called Hurricane that was a hit.
You’ll be okay.
