Subject: RE: The Dutchman (M. Smith): meanings?
You're probably right Joe - it is poetry of the highest sort and allows the reader or listener to add whatever "back story" she or he wishes. We were just thinking that it had a personal experience as it's inspiration.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I'll look forward to seeing if Michael Smith can clear it up a bit if Mick talks to him.

Once again, this proves to me that Mudcat is one of the best sites on the 'Net and it's members (and many guests) are some of the best people out there too.
