Hope you enjoy my mix of ideas with Bob Dylan's theme from this song.

How many times can you fall in love

Before they call you a Cad?

Just how much injustice can you watch in the world

Before it makes you angry and mad?

Yes, Just how many senseless deaths does it take

To make you cry cause you're sad?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many poems must a young man read

Before he feels with his heart?

And how many plays must a person see

Till they want to act in a part?

How many times can we walk in this world

Before we see nature's art?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many times can we see people's needs

And not care to give them a hand?

Yes, how many times can we ignore the pain

And stick our heads in the sand?

How many times can we sit back and watch

Without us taking a stand?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind.
