Poem by Mark Young (Australia)
Published in The Ofi Press issue 48
The dictates of economic necessity
The commercial rationale behind
the one-day seminar I'll be
conducting in Copenhagen is that,
even if one is based in somewhere
like Seattle, they can still easily fund
the inspirational dream that we
provide, to produce high quality
children who are affordable & able
to sing better than they can speak.
