    Don't think so. Perhaps he's just off laughing at capitalism somewhere else.

    He's still a registered member and I don't know anything about his absence, don't know if the discussion about security of his access through the MCC computer amounted to anything. I'd assume he's simply doing other things, barring any evidence to the contrary.

    Sorry! Did know it had to. Here is a rhyming one which I like to read around this time of year. It's by John Scott of Amwell from the 18th Century and called "Ode XIII" or...

    The Drum

    I hate that drum's discordant sound,
    Parading round, and round, and round:
    To thoughtless youth it pleasure yields,
    And lures from cities and from fields,
    To sell their liberty for charms
    Of tawdry lace, and glittering arms;
    And when Ambition's voice commands,
    To march, and fight, and fall, in foreign lands

    I hate that drum's discordant sound,
    Parading round, and round, and round:
    To me it talks of ravaged plains
    And burning towns, and ruined swains,
    And mangled limbs, and dying groans,
    And widow's tears, and orphan's moans;
    And all that Misery's hand bestows,
    To fill the catalogue of human woes.

    Have you ever heard the Pogues do a version of Eric Bogel's "And the Band Played Watzing Matilda"? Most covers of most songs are crap, but the Pogues have done something especially good here - better than the orginal, I think.

    Not sure that I agree that most covers of most songs being crap, but I have heard the original and Pogues' cover of And the Band Played Watzing Matilda. I love both, Although being a huge McGowan fan probably doesn't help my objectivity.
