What they filk, and who they filk,
Troubles them not in the least.
And they know that ol’ Kipling is safe to milk
Because he is deceased.
For a fan or folksinger may strike back
And a rock star sometimes sues,
But a poor dead poet’s published works
Are always safe to use.
He, being dead, cannot object,
However much he despairs.
Nor can he lay hands on a single check:
Royalties go to his heirs his descendants.
Royalties go to his heirs.
