Under Attack (nonet)
This was a fast write in the 'nonet' challenge, where you write a lyric in which the first line has nine syllables, the second has eight, the third has seven.. all the way down to the last line that has one.
Obviously, politics are on my mind, with the upcoming November US election, so this kind of wrote itself.
Recorded live - resonator guitar tuned to open G, played with a slide, and harmonica (on the rack, for once) all live into music memos on my iphone (which adds some drums) and then over to audacity for a little eq and such.
Democracy is under attack
We are quite serious this time
You think it can’t happen here
Read your history books
All the fascist signs
Check the boxes
