Imagine that read out in a lilting English voice and it would turn the most intractable emo into one of the happy shiny people.
At last.A Christmas song we can all enjoy!
A little upbeat but wonderful nonetheless (the poem I mean, not your weird carol)
The poem, sure it is cleve,r BUT the Commie carole is priceless.I'm looking for it on itunes to add to my Ramones and Kinks Chrissy CD favs.
Is this poetry from Monkey's Mask? **This is inappropriate in several ways. I acknowledge this but am unrepentant.
The carol is catchy, isn't it homesick.It's Christmas time, let's celebrate,By purging the enemies of the state.I've been singing that around the office all day.The minister looked a bit worried, though.
Tomorrow I will hold you tight & kiss you my sweet darling,I'll give you Trotskies & a Christmas candy StalinSpouse reminds me daily that "commies can be romantic too.. it is not a capitalist notion ya know"Top tune Ramon.. top tune. The kids are humming it as they clean their teeth before bed.
Inappropriate?Why so, Catlick?
Conflating the two Dorothys, Parker & Porter so soon after the latter's death is perhaps tactless. I'd like to share a little something I wrote. Dear Dorothy Porter,Your poetry was better than it oughta be. The pungent irony in this haiku escaped the last audience. Perhaps you awful people will get it.
I liked your poem, Catlick.
Thank you Ramon.
I don't get itStar Wars confuses this awfulIn December sun
The catchiness of that tune makes me wonder if Comrade Kosky and Brumby could put their policies to music and pipe it throughout the system."You think you need a train that takes you to your destination.Well walk this way and we won't even say "desalination". Grade separation is Nirvana, not had in your lifetime,And don't distract me I'm re-jigging stats about the state's crime...
Crikey, you're on fire Catlick.
Yes I suspect I could be making a crust writing Liberal Party Christmas cards.Mitchell Johnson has 8.
Mitchell Johnson has 8.That's just showing off now.I wonder if Mitchell Johnson likes Dorothy Parker.
He might find some solace in her work after his 9th wicket was just dropped by Haddon.
That was rather a Three Stooges moment.And hasn't Perseus been quiet recently.*wink*
"Mother Superior" (Benaud) reminds me of the Futurama jar heads. I can see Channel Nein plugging Ritchie in 50 years time.
And will Haden manage a Resurrection Shuffle?
Man's a goose.I'm surprised he didn't fall over his pads on the way to the crease.
When your luck and your skill align on a downward trajectory it's "coitins".
And he's out for four.Goose.And while it's just you and me, catlick old chum, why is Perseus so spastic with women?
No more spastic than me or thee. Well me, really. Makes me want to cuddle him and say "there there".
Hey. Ya comin' down over the hols?
Two more days Ramon and you can have Gloomy Sunday:Sunday is gloomy,My hours are slumberlessDearest the shadowsI live with are numberlessLittle white flowersWill never awaken youNot where the black coachesSorrow has taken youAngels have no thoughtsOf ever returning youWould they be angryIf I thought of joining you?Gloomy SundayGloomy is Sunday,With shadows I spend it allMy heart and IHave decided to end it allSoon there'll be candlesAnd prayers that are said I knowBut let them not weepLet them know that I'm glad to goDeath is no dreamFor in death I'm caressing youWith the last breath of my soulIll be blessing youGloomy SundayDreaming, I was only dreamingI wake and I find you asleepIn the deep of my heart hereDarling I hopeThat my dream never haunted youMy heart is telling youHow much I wanted youGloomy SundayPS. I recommend The Associates' version but traditionalists might prefer Billie Holiday's.PPS. Billy Mackenzie from The Associates topped himself but Billie H only ODed.
How do naturally anarchist cats fit with the Christmas carol Ramon?
Poetic license, comrade.Poetic license.
And, interestingly, license doesn't seem to extend to this sort of thing..."There's a swas-tik-a on the Christmas tree,A pogrom for you, ethnic cleansing for me, etc...
