So most of us know about that lyric in “Mad as Rabbits” that says
We must reinvent love…
There is an extended poem written by a gay poet named Arthur Rimbaud and its called A Season in Hell that is divided into nine parts. In the fourth part called Delirium 1: The Foolish Virgin – The Infernal Spouse which is basically about a man who is in love with another man. According to Wikipedia it is “…story of a man (Verlaine), enslaved to his “infernal bridegroom” (Rimbaud) who deceived him and lured his love with false promises. He treats quite transparently his relation with Verlaine.”
Supposedly(and most likely), the lyrics We must reinvent love… were taken from this poem.
This is a ryden theory. I don’t know if anybody has notice this before. The Mad as Rabbit is not the only song that the lyrics reference the gay poet Arthur Rimbaud. I got interested in the poem and wanted to see if it was true that they referenced the poem, and while I was reading I found two other references. (Maybe this is not like a major ryden thingy BUT it is still interesting how much they reference this poet).
-Arthur Green is the BC Greens candidate for Fraser-Nicola. He’s a 9/11 truther and has shared other conspiracies related to Stephen Harper, UFO’s and Chem Trails.
-Ryan Marciniw is the BC Green’s candidate for Richmond-North Centre. He retweeted a holocaust denying post, and replied ‘Nailed it!’. He’s also made homophobic comments and also appears to be a 9/11 truther.
Arthur was quite lost, the Island looked very different then he remembered, Pulling into harwick (an alien area to him) he came to a hault after seeing a purple engine.“Oh, I don’t think I ever saw you last time I was here!” Arthur called.
