PE002762 - Pulpit Pounding Bill and Other Rhymes of Aberhartia

"Pulpit Pounding Bill" is an exposition in rhyme of the political fantasia that has happened in Alberta since a pedagogue became a demagogue and a preacher, a politician. To those outside of Alberta the events recorded in verse may appear fantastic, bizarre and devoid of common sense. But to those who have a front seat and have observed the theatrical performance from the beginning, it is by detecting the comedy of the performance that the tragedy appears less disastrous.
Since the subject of these verses has seen fit to capitalize upon the credulity, the greed, the religious faith of many of the people of Alberta this caricature in verse does not hesitate to employ satire and ridicule. Mostly it is an attempt to to describe a political pantomime in a manner best suited to the actors.
Should you enjoy these verses - there is hope - should they offend - it will not be the first time. Our only hope is that this book may contribute to a better and saner province - free from political intolerance, divorced from an evangelical bigotry and the bitterness of political dissension. May we go forward gradually improving our lot, preferably by individual efforts rather than relying upon the vaporings of a "Pulpit Pounding Bill".

Included verses:
"A Prophesy"; "Alberta's Boy Blue"; "Square Deal Will"; "An Alberta A.B.C."; "Aberhart's Lament"; "The Athabaska Triumpth"; "The Conquest of Saskatchewan"; "Pulpit Pounding Bill"; "Old Father William"; "Verse or Worse"; "I Wonder If-"; "Still In Control?"; "The Visit of Bible Bill"; "Another Lament"; "Powell's Return to England"; "Abericks"; "Still Lamenting"; "The Laryngitis Blues"; "The Same Old Line"; "Aberhart's Dream"; "The Social Credit Dream"; "Having Saved Alberta?"; "Changing Times"; "Saskatchewan, We're Coming"; "Said Aberhart to Manning"; "Social Credit"; "Aberwocky"; and "The Gypsy's Tale".
