Middle Men – Poetry

Middle Men by the Sleafod Mods. Jason Williamson’s lyrics cross the line from lyrics to poetry for me. Not all lyrics should or can do this. In a totally different genre, Joni Mitchell’s lyrics do the same. Here we meet the men of our time, who want their cake and eat it, and hook up with all the greedy voters who want likewise. All the while they are middle men they are fronting for some other unspoken thing, or person, or corporation or idea. A free Facebook account is a perfect example of the cake, Zuckerberg the middle man, and the company as a front for greed.

Williamson and Sleaford Mods are not middle men because they are up front in what they represent, take it of leave it.
