Mother Courage And Urinetown

Updated on April 23, 2014

Mother Courage And Urinetown

.

Has humanity evolved?

Have we come that far,

From the three thousand,

And “Thirty Years’ War”?

.

Anna Fierling lives on,

Adding her sums,

As commerce drones on,

Beating its drums.

.

And now she pulls,

Her cart with ease,

Sans Eilif, Kattrin,

And, alas, Swiss Cheese.

.

Centuries more,

It still trickles down,

And we find ourselves,

In Urinetown.

.

Now Hope is lost.

Push comes to worst,

As most of the cast,

Die of thirst.

.

Strong with Soupy Sue,

Little Sally, and all see,

The unpromised land,

Where all pee free.

.

      This brought such a large smile to my face! So clever and witty and great! Luckily I have seen the musical "Urinetown" and have a slight historic perspective here. Thank you for this. Jamie
