Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
most definately the meister of understatement methinks!!!
In a strage twist, at my session last night a chap actually sang AIG and it went down pretty well, I do think these songs can work but sometimes the sentiment can sound a little tacky, especially when it's couched in all this pop/folky sound - the poem posted above is pretty much the holy grail of tacky sentiment dressed up to look like protest in my opinion I'm, afraid but it may stir something in someone else where it just makes me cringe a little.
There are plenty of people who are being active to change things that are abhorrent and unfair - I guess they are more busy doing that than writing twaddle on the internet every day.
