Jon Bartlett Left wing political parodies (48) RE: Left wing political parodies 11 Nov 08

Concluding lines for the "Say Something Stupid" parody:

You may talk of Adorno but I don't know it's pretty tortuous and gloomy stuff
And Jameson is fine but to imbibe it after wine just leaves you feeling rough

Well I was in a spin, I couldn't win so I waxed slightly semiological
Till digging out deep structures was denounced by Macheray as metaphysical
Though Althusser is smart his views on art and ideology don't ring quite true
So hello Helen Gardner Donald Davie Denis Donoghue,I love you.

I've had this for years in a Finnish samizdat, anbd I've just discovered my missing last verse in the Eagleton Reader. Good on yer, Terry!
