Commentary to the song “A Strange Jumping”.
This song narrates about the Ukrainian revolutionaries of the so-called “revolution of dignity”. These revolutionaries could perform on their behalf “Road-Song of the Bandar-Log” from Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book”:
Here we go in a flung festoon,
Now you’re angry, but — never mind,
Here we sit in a branchy row,
We’ve forgotten, but — never mind,
All the talk we ever have heard
Now we are talking just like men!
Let’s pretend we are ... never mind,
Then join our leaping lines that scumfish through the pines,
The song was performed in the musical tale “Alice in Wonderland”.
