Date: 22 Jan 06 - 08:53 AM
Allies land at Anzio on 1/22/1944
Let them bum about the desert,
Let them talk about Dunkirk,
Let them brag about the jungles
Where the Japanese did lurk.
Let them boast about their campaign
And their medals till they're red:
You can put the lot to silence
When you mention — the beachhead.
"Ballad of Anzio," Anon. Ballads of World War II,
"Collected for the Lili Marleen Club of Glasgow" by
Seumas Mor Maceanruig (Hamish Henderson), Caledonian Press, c1952.
1/22/1973: U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Roe (Norma McCorvey) v. Wade upholds a woman's constitutional right
to choose whether or not to terminate a pregnancy.
Me father sells cheap prophylactics,
He punctures each one with a pin,
Me mother she does the abortions,
Oh, see how the money rolls in!
From an American version of "Me Father's a Lawyer in England," [thanx Steve Suffet]
