    A great Poet and songwriter GORDON LIGHTFOOT in this song ''Race Among The Ruins'' that falls between ''Pride of Man'' and ''Protocol'' to remind us that we are on the road of uncertainty in this day of age that can lead us to a doomsday end of times by such fools who are keeping our minds busy to be entertained by The Entertainers and Actors ''PLAYIN' JESTER TO THE CLOWN'' to distract us away from reality, which is not a joke these days. So now we should enjoy life in the present much more with our loved ones and ''think'' 'cause you never know what can happen to us being in the ''race among the ruins'' All we have to look to the past races that were left in ruins following us in the present to look again to the Middle East at the new madness we've created by our race to help totally ruin Syria's Allepo and HOMS cities. Where for now I think we have ''one less friend to call upon'' that was also a ''KING OF EDESSA'' a very long time ago in the now for us to repent in the name of JESUS CHRIST to be forgiven for our sins, cause they're less Syrians and true Christians left in this world that died and are still dying.
