Bar-band Challenge


I am a poet, but I also have a straight time job. The other day on the route, while I was picking up the garbage the world of education makes, a voice popped up in my head: ‘Donnie Jingo!’

It resonated with the tune of an old western movie song “Johnny Ringo!”

It immediately mutated into the tune from the James Bond film “Goldfinger”.

By the time I reached the office I had made it this far in the lyrics:


Donnie Jingo! A man with a coward’s lusts, he is a putz.

Such a bold dingo, slavering and sniveling to get in . . .


I looked up on the web the words to the song and came up with Shirley Bassey’s lyrics.


From there it went nowhere, but it would make a great protest song for the “Resistance” to the Trump regime.

So this is another plea to those musicians out there. Take these words and finish this song. Make it a top 40 hit and drive the establishment mad. Please!
