Anti-Tax/Anti-O'Malley Anthem Contest

In "honor" of O'Malley's tax and spend schemes making their way through the General Assembly, I am hosting a contest to select an anti-tax/anti OMalley anthem. I will be taking your suggestions. The winner will preferably be an Irish rock/folk song to remind the governor that he is acting like the tyrant that many of those songs rail against. However, the contest is open to all genres.

I will be posting all suggestions on The Main Adversary. A blue-ribbon panel will select the finalists. The winner will be chosen in a poll of the finalists. The winning song will be played during the Tuesday evening O'Malley Watch Updates on WAMD AM 970.

Send your suggestions to antitaxanthem@gmail.com A Youtube vid of the song will be helpful, just add the embed link in your email. Let me know if you do or do not want your name posted along with your suggestion.

Herewith is my suggestion:



Lyrics
By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young girl calling
Michael, they have taken you away
For you stole O'Malley's corn
So the young might see the morn
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young man calling
Nothing matters, Mary when you're free
Against the famine and the Crown
I rebelled, they cut me down
Now you must raise our child with dignity

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely harbor wall
She watched the last star falling
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray
For her love in Botany Bay
It's so lonely ‘round the fields of Athenry

It's so lonely ‘round the fields of Athenry

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

WHAT did you write?
You changed only 1 word in "Fields of Athenry."
Not exactly a huge creative spurt.
Surely, the moronic DEMs in Annapolis, led by King MOM, provide a larger canvas on which creative mockery can spew its disdain, insults, and sarcasm for the DEM tax theft circus--flyingcow
