They’ve Banned the Bulls At Barcelona. By Barry Pittard

Posted by Barry Pittard on September 28, 2011

I have worked on this song – words and music – since yesterday. It sprang from seeing that day’s news reports about the banning of bullfighting in Barcelona, Spain. The incident recalled a repeated discovery of prominent figures in confronting the Sathya Sai Organization. Namely, that when you fight a hard cause, you essentially have to fight it pretty well alone.

The crowds may cheer or give thumbs down. But one has to focus on the proper work, and not the pro or anti roars of crowds. Nor, indeed, waste time lamenting on many people’s disappearance from the action, from whom one might have wished to see better.

Whether one believes in bullfighting or this or that cause or not, the true pain and joy – those great inseparables – are in the deed, and in facing it no less than the worthy matador or bull OR active opponent of bullfighting. Those who dare are too few, and would dare regularly if only they knew the sheer satisfaction of making a stand.

My supposition is that the prime activists in the fight for animal rights have far more in common with the matadors than what the madding crowds would like to admit. Both matadors and activists risk their lives (as do, not to forget, the bulls).

They’ve Banned the Bulls At Barcelona. By Barry Pittard. 28 September 2011

—————————————-


They’ve banned the bulls at Barcelona

The bold matadors have had their day

Had their day

Had their day …..

Their capes they’ve tossed to the sun’s corona

Carried by the crowds, they vanish away

Vanish away …..

As they vanish away

The crowd cries out: ‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’, and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’, and ‘Ole’

The blood-sand, there, fades to pallid yellow

No man, no bull, no crowd in the stands

No crowd in the stands

In the Plaza de Toros

No sword, no horn, no clash, no bellow

The wind whips away the blood and the sand

The blood and the sand

The blood and the sand

As the crowd cries out: ‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

When they banned the bulls at Barcelona

The red-eyed crowds how they wept all day!

Wept all day!

Wept all day!

But who faces the bull is no crowd but a loner

Alone with the bull

Alone with the bull …..

It’s only the crowd chants ‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’ …..

Thinks the bull: I’ve no time for the crowds in the bleachers

With their lily yellow livers, they are takers, never givers

Takers, never givers!

Takers, never givers! …..

Thinks the bull: I’ve no time for the crowds in the bleachers

The lily livered crowds that make no stand

That make no stand!

That make no stand!

That only glow red when they suck me like leeches

And pour none of their blood gushing into the sand

They have no sand!

They have no sand! …..

It’s only the crowd that chants ‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’

‘Freedom’ and ‘Ole’ …..

When they banned the bulls at Barcelona

A new crowd cheered and leapt all day

Leapt all day!

Leapt all day!

But they too followed some gutsy loner

Who stood their ground, and kept death at bay

Death at bay!

Death at bay!

The matador and the activist are alike, you could say

Though this the bold crowds dare never say

Dare never say!

Never say!….

Thinks the bull: I’ve no time for pallid crowds in the bleachers

With their lily yellow livers, they are takers, never givers

They’ve banned the bulls at Barcelona

My bold matadors have had their day …..
