awash in feelings oh-so-strong and
wishing time would move along;
always me, who cannot cope;
kites are flying, high on hope.

everlasting joy.

Let me introduce to you, a fellow whose views are easy to mock
He acts like he wears tuxedos, when he’s only got one sock
And claims to feast
On bread with little yeast
He is common worker and his name is Mr Block
This is a bit late but I haven't been able to get to a computer sooner, I scrawled this in my notebook. Also NaPoWriMo is technically an American event so it should still be in time over there. (14/04/14)

Mr Block is a character created for a song by Joe Hill called Mr Block (there are many versions on youtube) he represents a Working man whose views are just really silly. Mr Block has been everything from a Conservative Ultra Patriot to an AFL reformist. I realise this ones a bit of an injoke but I'm hoping to turn it into a little series of limericks which should be a lot funnier overall.

"Yes, the long memory is the most radical idea in this country. It is the loss of that long memory which deprives our people of that connective flow of thoughts and events that clarifies our vision, not of where we're going, but where we want to go." Bruce "Utah" Phillips 1935 - 2008


History is a lengthy catalogue of triumphs defeats and strife
But for the most part ignores the ordinary tales of work and wife
We know or should all know the tale of mighty Caesar
And the cautionary tale of listening to Goebbels the great deceiver
But not many know of the masses who toiled for others wealth
And all too often gave up everything up to and including their health

Now friend save your protestation
This ain’t meant to be a condemnation
Neigh it’s merely a statement of fact
About the knowledge we collectively lack
All I know is that with a few less armchair generals and egomaniacs
Mimicking the old warlords, and planning future attacks
And a few more poets, hobo’s and folk singers
The world wouldn’t so often get put in through the ringers
I'm a historian by education and I'm most interesting in social and Labour history. I recently started listening to an old radio show about American social history called The Long Memory by Wobbly Folk Singer Utah Phillips.
