Changed Perception: "Rose, Rose He Never Loved You"

Recently while looking at the geo-political, Globalist One-World vs Multipolar Fair-World Order, Russia/Ukraine, East/West factions around the globe, a line from Frankie Laine's old song, Rose, Rose, I Love You wafted through my brain. The line is, "East is East and West is West, our worlds are far apart".

When I was a pre-teen I used to lie on the living room floor listening to records and that song would break my heart. The man singing the song is leaving his true love, Rose, behind in Singapore because you see, "he cannot stay". He "has an aching heart" but must go back to America and can't take her with him. I used to feel so sorry for Rose and her man. They were so in love! It was so sad! They loved each other so desperately but they'll never see each other again!

Now that I'm no longer an emotional pre-teen, am older and have lived a fair bit of life, my perception of many things has changed including Rose, Rose I Love You. As soon as I thought of the line, "East is East and West is West", I immediately wondered at how I ever saw that song as a romantic tragedy.

Today I think Rose and her man had a steamy love affair while he was stationed in Malaya, but now he has to leave her "standing on the jetty as the steamer moves away". He sings that he'll always remember "oriental music and you in my arms, perfumed flowers in your tresses and lotus-scented breezes and swaying palms". She apparently had "almond eyes", was "fragrant and slender 'neath tropical skies" but nevertheless he must "cross the seas and never see her more" because he has to go "way back to my home on a distant shore". He does however throw in there that he's a bit concerned since he croons, "What is your future now we have to part?"

Well, I'll tell you what Rose's future was. She stood on that pier until the ship disappeared on the horizon, then turned around and thought, "What the hell is going to happen to me now?! I'm pregnant and he left me alone with no home and no money. He didn't even give me his address in the States. And my parents won't let me in their house since I'm pregnant with a foreigner's baby." Since it was the days before crisis pregnancy centers were in operation, Rose, despised as a prostitute of a Westerner, probably just disappeared into the mass of humanity living on Singapore's streets with her "tugi" child who, if he were a boy, would learn to steal and take drugs or if a girl, would become a prostitute.

Meanwhile the man goes back to his family in the States, graduates from an Ivy League college, becomes a lawyer, marries into the correct social circle, lives in a big house, has several children, and lives comfortably ever after playing golf at his country club. The only time he thinks of Rose is when his wife "has a headache". Even then he doesn't really wonder what happened to Rose as much as he thinks of the great sex they had together while he was in Singapore.

So you see, my perception of Rose, Rose I Love You changed. Now I look at the lyrics of that song and think in more realistic terms, i.e., that he probably never loved Rose. I changed my outlook. While only God is immutable and human nature itself never changes, people as individuals can change, governments can change, countries can change and we need to be aware that if something or someone has changed for the better or worse, we should not refuse to recognize that current reality. 

Just look at the United States, now taken over by a planned election coup and controlled by the Deep State with the MSM cheerleading every Marxist agenda of Joe and his sidekick Kamela Harris cackling like she's possessed. The US, per Deep State directives, creates chaos across the globe, then encourages other countries to fight proxy wars to achieve America's own goals which is always regime change in those particular countries. That's positively evil. It's the old trick of getting someone else to do the dirty work for you. What's going on in the Ukraine is evil and not on the part of Russia. 

The US placed oligarch Igor Kolomoyski's puppet, Volodymyr Zelensky, as President of Ukraine. Kolomoyski, a buddy of Hunter Biden, is the creator of the TV program "Servant of the People" where Zelensky played a history teacher who eventually becomes president of Ukraine. The show was a psyop to install Zelensky, an actor/comedian, as president of Ukraine. Kolomoyski founded the Servant of the People political party for Zelensky after which he (Kolomoyski) bankrolled a billion dollar account for Zelensky in Costa Rica and bought him a $35 million villa in Sunny Isles, FL north of Miami. Kolomoyski also keeps a shark in a tank in his office to intimidate business associates. 

Ukraine, known to be the most corrupt country in Europe, is replete with Nazis who hate the Russian people with the same passion that Hitler hated the Jews. America now champions racist far right white Nazis!  The US goaded Zelensky, surrounded by his Nazi goons, and Ukraine into war with Russia because the US wants President Putin overthrown by a pro-Western regime in order to further the globalists' One World Order plan for the universe. Once under control of the globalists, the West would plunder Russia's massive supplies of oil, gas, metals, grain and fertilizer,

So, no, Rose, he never loved you and the US, along with Ukraine, unfortunately is fast becoming the most corrupt country on earth.

All Truman ever knew was PsyOp. He knew no better until his own Red Pill moment - when a small glitch appeared in the "sky". Reality was composed and imposed by the "directors" of his life.

In many ways, this is us.

Until we figure out, like Truman, we are being played by The Beast and then do something original, like this:

And ... yes, it is ironic to use movie clips to demonstrate the power of mass media manipulators to control and direct our souls toward a desired outcome.

This song by the great Christy Moore is worthy of the topic of lost love

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque said...

Ok, just one more from Christy

Pax tecum, Ma'am

They used same recipe to install reality actor "you're fired!" World wrestling entertainment icon bff bill hill Epstein as president warp speed

Mary said...

I don’t agree with using “America” when referring to the Deep State, they do not represent us and do not respect the Constitution. They are as hostile to us, and view America as an impediment to their power.

Evangeline said...

Only God can get us out of this now. According to scripture, Marian apparitions, visionaries and seers, not to mention the signs in the heavens and what we see with our own eyes, the hour is late and the day well spent. Americans have been on Toadie's Wild Ride for the past 15 years or so. God is our hope. Mankind is almost totally lost. Now we have Amerika.
Get right with God. Repent. Confess. Pray. Amend your life. Read scripture. Get to know Jesus. Try to bring your loved ones along.

This powerful prayer is one to memorize. It was prayed at Lepanto, a battle that was a turning point in Europe's history, and the most unlikely outcome you can imagine. The Christians sailed under the standard of Our Lady. They were victorious against the vastly larger Ottoman mariners.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do Thou O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell, Satan, and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls, amen.

To Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque,
Thank you for linking the beautiful songs by Christy Moore. One of my sons-in law is Irish - Dublin born and raised - and was a member of a famous band there from the 80s - gold record and all. However, unfortunately they didn't sing beautiful songs like Christy Moore. Speaking of lost loves reminds me of lost time. Here's Sandy Denny (not Irish...sorry) with her great song "Who Knows Where The Time Goes?" I'm sure you've heard it, but perhaps someone reading this might not have. Thank you for your comments.

Susan Matthiesen said...

To Rorbachs,
There're several differences between the two but the first is that Trump earned his billions as a businessman while it seems that Zelensky whored himself for money.

Susan Matthiesen said...

To Mary,
I understand your point, but we're still called the United States of America therefore using either the "United States" or "America" (or US, USA) is correct. The Deep State hates us. They hate America yet they control us and America. Like Aqua said in the first comment above, "we're being played by the Beast". The Collective West (USA, Canada, the EU countries, Australia, New Zealand) are all being played.

Susan Matthiesen said...

To Aqua,
As usual we enjoy you comments! Thank you.

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

Speaking of lost time, one of the saddest songs I can think of is Cat's in the Cradle.

Aqua said...

"Cat's In The Cradle" - Sad, yes; poignant. Not my style in my youth, back in the day. But as time passes, that is the one song that has stuck in my head. Enough time has passed that I can see all my parenting choices express themselves in my children, my family. And the song, quite brilliantly but simply, demonstrates that we are all the product of our choices in the individual moments of life ... our heritage is the image of those choices that we, for better or worse, cannot avoid seeing and knowing as we approach our destiny with eternity.

Dear Susan Me Mom's side of the fam is from County Cork - -they were kicked out of Limerick for being incorrigible - but that's not the sole reason I love Christy and his music; one doesn't have to be Irish to appreciate what it is that he does.

Pax tecum, Ma'am

P.S. The aside about me Fam being kicked out of Limerick may seem strange; well, it is and I take a sort of perverse pleasure in that fact :)

...if he was a boy...

Susan Matthiesen said...

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque,
I've been to Ireland twice with my daughter and son-in-law. I think it was in Cork that I almost got killed by stepping off a curb to cross the street when I looked left as was habit in the States but a car was coming in the lane to my right.

Then in Limerick - I'll never forget this astonishing sight - as we were driving through the city in heavy traffic I looked out the window and just beside the car was a brown and white sulky horse driven by a young man. Having ridden horses all my life I was astounded at both horse and driver. That horse never blinked his eyes at the traffic...just kept apace with the car and eventually passed us. The driver was a marvel in that he had such confidence in his horse. My son-in-law said the man was a gypsy...that they have those horses, sulkies, etc and drive them everywhere. My admiration for that man and horse is still with me today.

Then in Clifdon I saw an abandoned thatched cottage in a field near Clifdon Bay. I told my son-in-law that I wanted to sell everything here and move to Ireland, live in that cottage and raise Connemara ponies there. He more or less said "dream on" because come winter I'd be freezing in that cottage with no electricity and having to haul bog or coal or whatever to keep from freezing. But a girl can still dream.

And my favorite Irish Song is "Four Green Fields"...which I was commanded not to request anyone play in the pub.

Susan Matthiesen said...

FR VF, I used "were" since it's a hypothetical situation.

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque said...

DearSusan.. Yeah, that might have been a bit of a problem :)

Here is Makem and Clancy with a smashing version

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque said...

Dear Susan. If you're a man and have some Irish blood in ye, you've already told the Bride ye want this to be played after the funeral when the boys have had a few

Makem was a magnificent talent.

Susan Matthiesen said...

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque
That's my favorite version of Four Green Fields. I loved Tommy Makem.

Susan Matthiesen said...

Fr VF, I'm looking at all the grammar rules to see whether "was" or "were" is correct and I can't figure it out. Can you point me to the correct rule? I'll be happy to change to "was" if I can see where "were" is incorrect. Thanks!

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

Hypotheticals are always "were." If I were king. If our vacation were in the fall instead of the Spring. Use was when it's reality.

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque said...

Dear Susan. I could extend this topic for quite a while but I want to bow out after posting this clip from the worthy movie "The Field."

I can't remember if Richard Harris won an Oscar for his performance but he should have retired the trophy for this scene alone:

Thank you, Mick Jagger gathers No Mosque!
