NOLITE TE BASTARDES CARBORUNDORUM*

(adjust sound before clicking)

grounddown  a ditty inspired by Margaret Atwood’s novel, HANDMAID’S TALE

*DON’T LET THE BASTARDS GRIND YOU DOWN

keep on grinding up

don’t let the grind down grinders grind you down
don’t be ground down
don’t be ground round
keep on grinding up
keep on grinding up
keep on grinding up

margaret atwood wrote it down
for those ground down
in the handmaid’s tale
when the ground down frail
read the secret wall
said down ground don’t frown above all
no lite te bastardes carborumdorum

the first rung to riding a rail
when they call you frail
reply to the grind
upward bound in mind
writing’s on the wall don’t erase that call
no lite te bastardes carborumdorum
