Commentary to the song “Throw your blues as a cantaloupe rind!..”
There is a poem, which harmonizes with this song and can supplement it, this is written by the participant of the hostilities of our time Igor Girkin “What know you about war, comrade?..”:
What know you about war, comrade?
How speedily pillagers go for
Both cows and old women are lying
How bullets and shells scream, how horrible,
Here also comes to mind Rudyard Kipling’s quatrain “Unknown Female Corpse”:
Headless, lacking foot and hand,
Horrible I come to land.
I beseech all women’s sons
Know I was a mother once.
The song was written for the film “One of Us” (1970).
