Filk the gist

A parody on March of Cambreadth (mp3) by Heather Alexander aka Alexander James Adams, the Fairy Tale Minstrel, written on the filk-de list to say “damn, we are filkers! We don’t quabble about politics — we sing about them!”

Filk the gist

Keyboards klick, Cellphones ring,
Shining laptop’s hackers sing,
Newsfeeds burn with polished prose,
Show us where we find our foes,
Midnight flame with congressmen,
Fight the trolls to keep us sane,
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How many of us can spot their lie?

Fuck the orders you get told,
Make their shallow hearts get cold,
Fight until you die or drop,
A force like ours is hard to stop,
Close your mind to stress and pain,
Write till you’re no longer sane,
Let not one wrong word pass by,
How many of us can spot their lie?

Guard your disk and emails well,
Send these bastards back to hell,
We’ll teach them the cyberway,
They won’t write in our clay,
Use your shield and use your head,
Fight till every line glows red,
Raise the flag up to the sky,
How many of us can spot their lie?

Dawn has broke, the time has come,
Publish to a marching drum,
We’ll win the war and pay the toll,
We’ll fight as one in heart and soul,
Midnight flame in filkers list,
Write the songs and catch the gist,
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How many of us can spot their lie?

Hackers blog while Filkers sing,
Pegasus has spread its wing,
Yesterday we were too shy,
How many of us can spot their lie?

PS: and to make crystal clear what I mean, because it wasn’t on the mailing list: Politics in song are Filk, and this song is against lying politicians! I’m sorry, Le-matya. This was meant to support your position but I forgot to doublecheck if it is clear in the context.
