I Need to To Go Scream of Life

Radio station playing song after song about new babies. They're all in this mournful minor  folky mode, musically, though the words are supposed to be  (joyful?) These are reflections, these are meditations. I want to shout at the DJ "Will you stop mourning life?" These songs are  supposed to touch us.  Oh the DJ informs us these are "heartfelt" welcomes to the world. This is like welcoming people and saying "It's so good to see you-- sorry you will eventually die in despair...."

Come on guys, why bring our issues to the new generation right off the bat? Let's meet the kids on their own terms...

How's about a scream of life?
