The Vandals Took the Handles

When I saw this antique water pump at The Grand Amezon Hotel and Resort in Lampang, Thailand the Dylan line from his ground breaking 1965 song immediately reverberated through my mind. 

Subterranean Homesick Blues

Light yourself a candle
Don’t wear sandals

Don’t wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don’t work
