From: GUEST,F the Ineffable

Halloween - All Hallows, All Saints' Day, Samhain, Day of the Dead…a propitious time to get in touch with the spirits of our ancestors, genetic, spiritual, and musical.

        I like Freddie Mercury and Queen. But many of Queen's songs express disdain for the poor

Buddy you're an old man, poor man
Pleadin' with your eyes
Gonna make you some peace some day
Mud on your face
You big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place
                                                - We Will Rock You

And contempt for “losers”

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world.

Are we going to let a bunch of upper-class twits decide who are “losers?”

As Sydney Carter sings in I Come Like A Beggar:

By the hungry I will feed you
By the poor I'll make you rich
By the broken I will mend you
Tell me which one is which?

Time for a rewrite.                        

I bite your neck
Time after time
I suck out your life force
Is that such a crime?

And pints of blood
I drink a few
Sometimes I think I've bitten off
More than I oughta chew.
        We are the vampires, my friend
        And we'll keep on biting till the end.
        We are the vampires.
        We are the vampires.
        No time for zombies
        'Cause we are the vampires of the world.
