Lucifer's Valet

a JOKE DEVISED 50 YEARS LATE

I think the words to this song:

could be sung to this melody:

POETICS ADDENDUM:

Jack Spicer gave one public reading of Heads of the Town up to the Aether, at Borregaard’s Museum. While he read the poem, they had the Horton single playing over & over.

He was also wearing a Giants baseball cap.

    Holblo on F Scott Fitz. –more useless wheezing from the Benny Hill of blogging

    Holbo? This isn’t his blog. I get like hardly any comments, & it’s about Holbo? I guess that makes me less than Benny Hill. What was the name of the little bald guy?

    What’s up with the gator-cannon in the tune ?

    You could probably go Zizek with that lil’ number, Larry, and see it as a sort of southern manifesto of sorts–though ante-bellum, and thus free of any nasty civil-war connotations. Ponder the implications of the noble Colonel Jackson fighting those corrupt Tories, keeping the authentic revolutionary spirit of ’76 alive, so forth. Horton as one of Jackson ghost soldiers seems sort of interesting–and it was a multicultural force of sorts…with Jean Lafitte’s bucs, some choctaw natives and a few free slaves helping out Colonel Jackson–and there was…a slightly froggie-papist angle as well–a supposed miracle–Mon Dieu!– occurred in a parish church right before the arrival of Brits–lets not forget America was the ally of the French, really until the CW– who by any reasonable estimation should have wiped out the Mericans—really it was nearly Benny Hill like bungling on the part of the Tories according to all reports, and Mssr Wiki as well

    In other words, it’s a stupid ditty (though was an old fiddle tune–January 8 or somethin– ‘fore Horton put words to it), but….sh*t happens for a reason. Could be like klan-related, or George Wallace, etc.–with redcoats instantiated for the yankee do-gooderss of the 50s. A “Remember Colonel Jackson!” sort of meme (really one of the scumbags of US Hist. however heroic, and I say that as one who would have saluted….Beauregard and Granny Lee, least before they were hanged)
