Da Bears

The Vikings are about to be beat by the Bears and over the PA was Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man." The title says it all, that is my fanfare, not the Bears. Football players are way over-paid, over-promoted, and under-producing. They are most definitely not the persons for whom that fanfare was written and I want it back.
The fanfare does not belong to those on TV. It does not belong to those in the public eye. It does not belong to canine corrupters, weapon wielders, or Al and Alma's altercators; it belongs to car mechanics, police officers, and soldiers in Afghanistan. The morally bankrupt can keep their mass-produced drivel that the masses call music, I want the fanfare, it is mine.
Stop playing it. It does not belong to you.
