Today, my little brother had a school assignment. As a unit introduction, they had to write the lyrics to their favorite song, and put the artist (“singer”, the teacher presumably explained to the seven year olds) up at the top.
My brother, being, well, my brother, did this.
Adorable, right?? By “Grrr”. Sounding out? Heck yes. Well done, my little doomsayer. You must continue my legacy long after my presence has ceased to grace this earth.
But then, of all the cruel and unusual tricks of the public schooling system, but he was denied by his teacher the fact that The Doom Song is a valid song! She says that “a song with only one word repeated over and over is not a song.”
It was good enough for Nickelodeon. It should be good enough for first grade.
