Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    


Sir Tom is clearly not having one bit

Of attempts to stop rugby fans singing his hit.

Stories have always been related in song -

Love, lust and loss - and who done who wrong.


Sultry Lena Horne, as if somehow in the know,

Sings "Frankie and Johnny" - and why Johnny had to go!

While Johnny Cash brings dark tones to linger upon

The terminal tidings of why "Delia's Gone"


Closing this detour to the downside of life

Ladies and Gents - don't forget "Mack the Knife"!

So, Sir Tom - stand firm and stay strong

And don't let the woke folk do Delilah wrong!

Never mind Delilah – she’s the least of our worries- stop cruelty to Mice!
I think the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts (their proper name) should ban Havergal Brian’s "Fantastic Variations on an Old Rhyme" which used the tune of Three Blind Mice as the basis of his work – and to boot, Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 IV. Allegro con fuoco for similar reasons.
Just Stop Farmer’s Wives!
Save the Mice!

Stuff and nonsense, MC. How before an alliance of animal rights activists, vegans, and the RSPB ban “four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie”?
