Thread Name: Harris and the Mare - murder or not?
Subject: RE: Harris and Mare - murder or not?
I'm unconvinced. I don't find it much of a yarn, and it doesn't seem to be saying anything worthwhile, near as I can figure ... But I would be interested in hearing some argument in its favour other than, 'I really like it'. I'm quite willing to admit the possibility that I'm just not getting something in the song - but I'd like to know what it is.
'what's called in inner city circles a "bitch slap"' - Yes - and I wonder how many men in the inner city have ended up dead in consequence of one these well-deserved 'bitch slaps' - and how many more woke up alive the next morning after some indignant woman resisted the temptation to deliver a well-deserved bitch slap.
