Subject: RE: Is this song appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
It is perhaps, worth remembering :

•        That in 2018, Domestic Violence – in Australia alone – resulted in the deaths of 63 women.
•        That “DV” is NOT a thing of “days gone by” nor perpetrated just by “the lower classes” as has been postulated.
•        That it involves a multitude of races, creeds, colours, ages, alcohol/drug users & abstainers, sexuality orients, – & genders – over a wide range of socio-economic and educational stratum, living in most countries on the planet.

At this point, whilst considering the future of the world and its peoples, words fail me.
….. sigh …..

R-J (Down Under) - who is strongly considering not reincarnating on Earth next time round.

Oh, you want this to be a music post?? Hmmmmm.   Well, I s’pose Mike Waterson’s “A Stitch in Time” springs to mind (and Thomas Hardy’s related poem) – they’re both in Mudcat already!
