Queens and Kings
Queens and Kings is a song I wrote after being moved by the Me Too Movement. This song covers my thoughts on these current events and the effects they are having on our society. The lyrics reflect the positive outcomes for these victims of sexism, sexual assault and harassment that are finally beginning to arise.
I wrote the song and play acoustic guitar, electric leads, sing vocals and harmonies. I have added in a bit-o-synth as usual. I asked Devin M to write and record a bass line and he came up with a beauty.

Our daughters too old to weep. What you sew you will reap

You face them here and you persevere.
Down, down, down they're falling
