As I Was Saying . . .

Whew. That was one helluva hiatus back there!

Back around the time of my last posting, I was hit amidships by a copyright problem anent my third-of-a-CD. I immediately (the same day the problem came to light) retained copyright counsel and then—waited. For months, this cracker did squat. I finally discharged him and hired another lawyer, who has given me his written opinion that my Guys and Dollars is fair use. Cost me a pretty penny, did that, but it was worth it. The problem is, the whole episode has rather taken the wind out of my creative sails. Only now have the juices begun to flow again, ever so slightly.

So today's offering is a parody of George Gershwin's Swanee. I realize that Paris, Lindsay and Britney aren't the item they were, and that those rehab clinics are breakin' up that ol' gang o' mine, so to speak; but that's so like me: a day late and a dollar short. Still, here's the lyric:

Paris Hilton,
Lindsay Lohan;
Lord knows, they're swinish!
It's no surprise to me
That they teamed up with B-
Why is Britney
Hangin' with 'em,
Bangin' with 'em?
Why? 'Cause they're swinish!
But then, the haute monde always adores
Triumvirates of swinish whores.

Come on, can you doubt they gitney?
Wrote her a whole extra tome.

Permit me to say that Triumvirates of swinish whores is an improbable concatenation of words of the sort that has always characterized my stuff (google some of my phrases, and you'll see). It may not be intelligible to an audience, but it looks great on paper. Yep, it's nice to be back.
