Oh God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe says, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
God say, “No.” Abe say, “What ?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin’ you better run”
Well Abe says, “Where do you want this killin’ made ?”
God says. “Out on Highway 58”.
Route 58 is a north/south axis of Okinawa. I spend a lot of time on it. It is slow going – many lights, 60 kph speed limit. It is bounded on both side by amazing structures, Pachinko palaces, boxing gyms, every kind of store.
I will write several things about Route 58. This one beams in on American colonial relics.
Cruising up Route 58 with your arm around your best girl, who is cuddling up on the bench seat of your pink Cadillac convertible, you can’t help but notice archaeology.
