Sweet Molly Go Home!

At the Midwinter event in Mordenvale, Silfren expressed dismay when the singing degenerated to Sweet Molly Malone. I wrote this for her in sympathy.

[July 2002]

All the folkies are singin’
And my ears, they are ringin’,
And I’d rather be drinkin’
From a cider-filled cup.
And they’re singin’ “Sweet Molly”,
‘Tis a terrible folly
And I’d rather just tell ’em
To shut the hell up.
