Songs to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable

These songs were written (and rewritten) over a number of years, and though some are few years old now, they don't seem dated. That's not necessarily a good thing -- one might wish the social issues address would be resolved one day.

But more than likely, our food supply will continue to be contaminated ("Salmonella Blues"), creditors will continue to harass deadbeats ("I'm a Deadbeat" and "Brooke"), religious leaders will continue to betray their vows ("Father McCoy"), teachers will still have affairs with students ("My Little Man") and Comcast will continue to compete for the title of the most hated company in America.

Some of the songs that aren't posted here (but might be added one of these days) are even more likely to offend someone -- and have even longer, more unwieldy titles. Titles like: "I Used to Think I Had It Made, Then the Girl Next Door Got a Window Shade" and "When Daddy Gets Hammered, Mama Gets Nailed."

There are also some love songs, also not here. I still love one or two of them.
