Okay, if you insist.

Folk music is the music of folks. It originated with folks who were sick and tired of listening to reels and quadrilles set to Gregorian chant day in and day out. So the folks threw this music of the court and church over, and tattletales ran to the people who composed it and cried, "The folk are revolting!" and he she or it agreed. But when it was explained, he she or it jumped to his her or its feet in rage and said, "We shall have none of that new folking shit music around here!" and sent the Army and the Navy to cut down those rebels. The Army galloped on their horses into many sessions, house concerts, and festivals, hacking many folk to death with their lances and skewering uncountable bagpipers on their sabers, causing the piobrachs to collapse with a sort of "PHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRBBBBBBBBBBBTTTTTTTTTTTTTT" sound much akin to that of a dying flautulent horse, while the Navy sailed around looking for what to do. But the folk persisted, mostly because it was persist or listen to Gregorian Chant hoedowns and eventually the Army and the Navy not only found better things to do, they started creating folk songs and folk music themselves and the composers grew wroth, but since they were a bunch of sissies and the Army and the Navy had the sabers, lances, halberds, maces, morning stars, pitchforks, Maxim guns, and gladii, they kept their wroth quiet. After a while, the barriers fell but it took an American composer to write folk music and folk songs into the "Billy the Kid Suite" (unless you count Haydn writing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" into the "Surprise Symphony" which most people don't, since there are few folks who can handle Handel, much less Handel Haydn, unless Handel's hidin'). Then came the great Woody Guthrie and fecund Morris Dancer and Bob Dylan and Buffy St. Marie and Ewan McColl and Pete Seeger and Peterpaul N. Mary and folk songs and music were rampant and ubiquitous. A plague of beatles nearly extinctified folk, but it still continues to be loved and appreciated and sometimes even sung and played by at least six people around the world, of whom I am one. I would also discuss folk dance here, but I don't have the time or will; I can, however, state unequivocally that it derived from the mating ritual of that legendary British animal, the Twobacked Beast.

Note, please, that I have used the four letters F, O, L, and K in that order at least once in every sentence of the above paragraph. It is a complete history of folk music and song and a partial history of folk dance.

Where's my prize?

Nope. No Star Trek links. But it did change from lottery to folk music. Like folk music ever gets discussed on this thread?

Jennifer Ladner is a Klingon spy!

Actually, she isn't, but since Amos's lottery post prompted Max/Google's magical click-this-link-and-the-Mudcat-gets-a-penny thingy at the bottom of the page to display a couple of how-to-win-the-lottery links, I just wanted to see if this post would make it display a couple of Star Trek links.

Guess I'll click the "Submit Message" button and find out...

I think she's been two-timing me under another name.

But it's okay. I'm sleeping in my old box under the highway overpass again. It's cold, wet, and noisy, but the plumbing is nonexistent. That's what you get when you...wait! I'll go sleep in my office! No one need know.

Rapaire:

I am sorry to break this to you, pal, but I have just received the following from a comely lass named Jenny Ladner who clearly has a warm spot in her heart for me.

I am seriously torn because I know how much you were counting on this delightful award. I, on the other hand, was expecting nothing of the sort. So I have decided to give this eail to you, and invite you to follow up with yon Jennifer and acquire the funds for your own purposes, which are generally so much more sterling than my own.

And if someone tells you to be blessed, tell you have already been there, and done that. T-short to follow.

Yeah, J's right. But I'd abandon a poem too, if it asked me to rhyme something with "woebegone". To avoid coming up with lines like "Joe!! Be Gone", or "Lo! He gone", or "Oh, the dawn" or even "Mow the lawn!".

These times are but a quiver in my eye, which really shake the tree of the post menapausal dandilion in my salad.
I feel a pulse of life rise like an anurisim of the digestive tract, trying to digest a living, breathing spermicidial.
I can ride the wind like the best of them, I heard murmered when the wind rose around a bunch of Harley Davidson freaks that thought the wind rose faster when they weren't riding.
It was like a ride through south California, to visit an old friend, that wasn't really where he wanted to be at the moment.
He was still out there being free and chanting, "Hare of tho dog bit me", "Hare of the dog in me".
The qulity of the calmness soothed any soul.

Across the splendoured field did thunder
Emblazoned with hot pride
The myriad sons of France a-blunder
On! On! with Ney they ride!
Their swords and lances shining
Through cloud and wrack of war
Their winsome maids a-pining
At home thro' days of yore
Straight down the cannon's mouth they ride
Into the gates of Hell they stride
As Wellington in readied square
Gives not his place, but steady stares
Not blinking, he, not woebegone
Not... (oh, damn! I forgot about some chore I have to do!)

Alas, the above poem, which was promising to be just utterly splendid must be abandoned in midstream. Duty calls.

Song of the Little Hawk





Am I alone
                                  And unobserved? I am!

                              Then let me own
                                  I'm an aesthetic sham!

                              This air severe
                                  Is but a mere
                                                       Veneer!

                              This cynic smile
                                  Is but a wile
                                                       Of guile!

                              This costume chaste
                                  Is but good taste
                                                       Misplaced!

                                  Let me confess!
          A languid love for lilies does not blight me!
          Lank limbs and haggard cheeks do not delight me!
               I do not care for dirty greens
                     By any means.
                     I do not long for all one sees
                              That's Japanese.
                     I am not fond of uttering platitudes
                              In stained-glass attitudes.
                     In short, my medievalism's affectation,
                     Born of a morbid love of admiration!

If you're anxious for to shine in the high aesthetic line as a man of culture rare,
You must get up all the germs of the transcendental terms, and plant them
    everywhere.
You must lie upon the daisies and discourse in novel phrases of your complicated
    state of mind.
The meaning doesn't matter if it's only idle chatter of a transcendental kind.
                      And everyone will say,
                      As you walk your mystic way,
"If this young man expresses himself in terms too deep for me,
Why, what a very singularly deep young man this deep young man must be!"

Be eloquent in praise of the very dull old days which have long since passed
    away,
And convince 'em, if you can, that the reign of good Queen Anne was Culture's
    palmiest day.
Of course you will pooh-pooh whatever's fresh and new, and declare it's crude
    and mean,
For Art stopped short in the cultivated court of the Empress Josephine.
                      And everyone will say,
                      As you walk your mystic way,
"If that's not good enough for him which is good enough for me,
Why, what a very cultivated kind of youth this kind of youth must be!"

Then a sentimental passion of a vegetable fashion must excite your languid
    spleen,
An attachment à la Plato for a bashful young potato, or a not-too-French French
    bean!
Though the Philistines may jostle, you will rank as an apostle in the high
    aesthetic band,
If you walk down Piccadilly with a poppy or a lily in your medieval hand.
                      And everyone will say,
                      As you walk your flowery way,
"If he's content with a vegetable love which would certainly not suit me,
Why, what a most particularly pure young man this pure young man must be!"

There was movement at the Mudcat, for the word had passed around
That the goat from Little Hawk had got away,
And had joined the wild bush goats -- he was worth a thousand bucks,
And Bruce Murdoch wandered over to the fray.
All the tried and noted catters from the countries near and far
Had mustered at the MOAB overnight,
For the catters love hard hunting where the wild bush goatses are,
And the MOAB sniffs the battle with delight.

I like that, WWADC. I like it so much that it has prompted my next act!

I received the following email today. Since the folks at UK Lotto have so badly let me down ("A little bit of Lotto left me down" -- there's a song in that) I have sent Mrs. Khalid's address and information to them! AND I've sent their information to her!

Here's her email to her, and gee, I didn't even know her before this!

No: 24A Idrisa Road,
Baghdad.
Republic of Iraq.
Salam
Greetings to you in the name of our Allah i got your e mail through the help of my nurse who scanned the internet and gave me your mail.
I am Mrs Mariam Khalid a devoted muslim,a new muslim convert of 74
years old after being converted from a christian family by my husband.For quite a good number of years now,I have been suffering from cancer of the breast and fibroid of the womb which has for a long time now affected my health and from all indications my condition is deteriorating by day and by my doctor's prediction I have less than six months to live.

My husband who is now late was killed during the US/British attack
against the president of my country (Sadam Hussain).My late husband was a member of the contract award committee of the republican ministry of
petroleum and resources of Iraq under the regime of Sadam Hussein

Throughout the period of my marriage with my husband,all efforts to
bear children proved abortive because of my poor state of health.My
husband was a very wealthy and influential man during the post war Iraq. After his death,I inherited all his wealth since he has no other next of kin.

Since it is now obvious that I may not survive my poor state of health,
I have deemed it necessary to leave a legacy on Earth and give a
positive account and justification of the life I lived on Earth before the Almighty Allah.
This I want to achieve by committing part of this wealth in all
sincerlity to fund , Islamic orphanages,widows and the less priviledge peoples all over the world. I know that afterdeath, I will be with ALLAH the most beneficent and the most merciful.
Please, note that this sum(us$35 Million) was securely deposited in a
security/financial company overseas in my name by my husband . I have
highlighted my attorney on the said sum and all the possible assistance
he would render to you on the documents covering the money so as to
enable you receive it as I cannot follow it up because of my ill
health,this e mail is being written for me by the nurse in my private hospital.Presently, my attorney is in Europe waiting for anybody willing.
I will also issue you a letter of authorization to anable the money be
paid to you.I want you and the Muslim community and all servants of the almighty where you reside to always pray for me .It does not matter your religion or wether i trust you but do actualize my dreams with this money for the sake of the almighty.My happiness is that i lived a life of a true devoted life worthy of emulation.

Lastly, I honestly pray that this money when remitted to you will be
judiciously used for the said purpose and you will take 10% as a
compensation for your assistance in carrying out these humanitarian services.

Whoever wants to serve God must serve him in truth and in fairness.
Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your
reply will give me room to source for another person or a devoted muslim for this same purpose.Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders. May the almighty ALLAH continue to bless you

Best regards.
Hajia Mariam Khalid.

The MOAB thread was winding on,
Winding with all Her charm
She did her very best to make
The catters free from harm--
And this was odd, because it was
a cyber funny farm.

Rapaire was shining sulkily,
Because he thought his brudder
Had got no business to be there
brown nosing up da Mudder
'It's very rude of her.' he said,
'To flaunt her mega udder!'

The thread was long as long could be,
The comments dry as dry.
You could not understand a bit
no matter how you try
For Amos, Rustic and the rest--
were raving by and by.

Now Chongo Chimp and and Little Hawk
Watched all the panorama
They drooled like anything to see
Such Shatneristic drama
'The problems of the Universe
are solved with one banana.'

'If seven men with seven blades
Shaved for half a year,
Do you suppose,' the Catter said,
'That they could grow a beard?'
'l doubt it,' said the albatross,
because he couldn't hear.

'The time has come,' the Mother said,
'To talk of many things:
Of earth shoes -- Guam-- and groundhog traps--
Of cribbages -- and Rings --
And why Iraq is boiling hot --
And whether pigs can sing.'

'But wait a bit,' the Catters cried,
Come join us in the chat;
For all of us are out of breath,
And some of us are fat!'
'No hurry!' said the MOAB and
They thanked her much for that.

'It seems a shame,' the Mother said,
'To play them such a trick.
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!'
and jennyO said nothing but
'The butter's spread too thick!'

'I weep for you,'the MOAB said:
'I deeply sympathize.'
With sobs and tears she sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding her mustard sauce and dill
Before her streaming eyes.

The MOAB showed her Catters,to
her son, whose name was Vlad
He licked his lips seductively
They realised they'd been had --
Their thread was his digestive track
and Vlad, the cad, was mad.

for ten long years they argued on
debating gin and tonic
in Vlad's entwining serpentining
gizzard, quite moronic
until the day he paid his dues
and had a full colonic.

The MOAB smiled as out they gushed,
like feathers on a river
The Mother watched them hurtling past
and felt a little quiver
And this was odd, because it was
just so much cyber blither..
