This is the last (for now) in my series of recently-written songs, an attempt to take my style more intentionally in the direction of simplistic and socially-conscious folk music. I should mention that this particular song seems to get the most negative reaction from those who’ve heard it so far (especially my wife) — apparently it steps on many toes, and I’ve been told by at least one person that it comes across as somewhat arrogant. That certainly wasn’t my intent, but it is what it is. Actually, the most favorable review it got so far was from a friend who told me I had managed to hit on all my favorite “soapboxes” all in one song. Even the idiocy of copyright laws. Well, at least it’s fun to play/sing. Enjoy!
