New Yorker .... cartoon ... blogged .. one fat man behind a desk with another slimmer man on a chair other side of desk . and the caption .. make this world a better place. It must seem like talking to the dead often commented in the past about lines that are repeated over and over - by singers who have died - I wouldnt venture a guess as to which singer or song they are referring to but a number of poets would spring to mind who would not echo the caption but would echo the message.
Such as,.. well the answer these days is always Buy the book, read and enjoy! You pay our money, you take your pick and make choices .. thanks New Yorker for the amusing cartoon nice work!
