Dylan as prophet

Apropos of nothing (or everything) in American culture circa 2009, a little Bob Dylan:

They’re spoonfeeding Casanova
To get him to feel more assured.
Then they’ll kill him with self-confidence
After poisoning him with words.

From “Desolation Row,” Highway 61 Revisited, Columbia Records, 1965
