mg BS: that powerless feeling (sensitive topic) (105* d) RE: BS: that powerless feeling (sensitive topic) 11 Mar 20


Pondering this subject further, I am thinking more and more. One song that seems just over the top, written by an overwrought Victorian songstress. Give me three grains of corn mother, about a boy in the potato famine asking for just three grains of corn to keep himself alive. Well, guess what..it is a true story. To the best of my memory, it was reported in a coroner's report in County Mayo..was somehow published in a USA paper almost immediately and a woman wrote the poem. I think there is an old tune and I think the link I will post the tune was probably written by the singer. Anyway, in the coroner's report, they emptied his pockets and found three grains of corn. So you just never know.
