Rumours Of My Death And All That

Penned upon the 12th of September, 2007

I live! I apologise for the – Christ’s alleged beard! – for the two-plus week gap between new material – it’s been Bedlam without the sympathetic psychiatric nurses over here – even rake’s progress is going backward, if you know what I mean. Things are settling down at long last, and I promise to make it up to you. I’ve been re-inventing FrillyShirt a little, letting the world evolve along with itself, and it should be a finer place to visit as it goes.

For now, though, I’m excited about a local shop which has begun selling Schnauzer propaganda! In the spirit, I thought I’d share a catchy chant, taught to me by schnauzer socialist leaders. It goes something like this:

Arise, ye puppies, from your slumber,
Arise, ye harbingers of woof.
For schnauzers in revolt now thunder,
Currant eyes see the light of truth!
Don the tartan coat of revolution,
Show you’re fuffy, arise, arise!
Strawberry noses spurn the rot of old tradition,
Rise above the ancient lies!
So comrades, come rally,
And the last bite let us face.
The Internationalpuppy,
Unites the schnauzer race.
So comrades, come rally,
And the last bite let us face.
The Internationalpuppy,
Unites the schnauzer race!
