    We heard our first cuckoo last week (they always head for a common near us which is awash with moths - the staple diet of the cuckoo apparently). But since then it has gone quiet - probably gone back to France where it might be a bit warmer.

    I have no idea where ours hang out ... we're surrounded by woods, and they're in there somewhere.

    And, while we're all feeling a bit militant, I found this song today ... curiously, it comes from "The Simpsons", where it is sung by Lisa, accompanying herself on the guitar!

    Without A Union
    SOTU 481 -Mayday...It's May Day!!!
    To the tune of "Makin' Whoopee" by Gus Kahn & Walter Donaldson, A Union Version Parody - From the magazine 'Talking Union'. I first learned it from a "Folk Process" column in Sing Out! magazine.

    Good morning & etc., Comrades! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far! We have had ten songs and the Workers are winning by a mile ... they have had support from Wim, Charley, Bob, Steve, Jim, Rob and "RedLil." Spring is springing thanks to Lynda and Stan and Ukulele Extra Cheese (I'm sorry, I don't know your name, Sir) has experienced a disaster requiring the efforts of the emergency services. Thank you all ... please keep them coming today!

    By the way, I should have pointed out - someone queried it - any songs about anyone doing a job of work are acceptable under the heading of "Workers" ... you don't have to be paid up Union members!
    AND
    Further to Joko's brilliant poem linking all three aspects of this week's theme, is anyone else able to bring such disparate threads together in one poem/song? Extra Brownie points will be earned!
