Phillip Coffey - Hoi Polloi
Hoi Polloi - by Phillip Coffey
Got much of my view of social injustice watching the "Three Stooges" whenever it was permitted, way back in the hills in the 60s on rainy or snowy Saturday morning Television.
The Hoi Polloi taking on the high society with the theatrics of slapstick comedy.
Cooking up stew, placing two eggs far apart, too many cooks in the kitchen I would see.
The Stooges be Doctors, 'mousers,' removing the stinky rodents from the uptown mansions
Or high-tech mechanical engineers flying in battle on the airwaves, with no vices - whatsoever.
Carrying up huge blocks of ice, way up several flights of stairs-melting to a single, solitary ice cube.
Knowing a long, variable range of swear words but wisely choosing none of them to share with the public at all.
Sell their household goods, door to door to the classy housewives -walk away totally empty handed
From the 'Black and White' meandering theme with a fine-tuned lasting departure as they would soon leave.
Go out to the West to get rich, during a big Gold Rush - then whistle Fido to round up all the thieves.
Save the poor widow, way out in the plains from robber barons or oil drilling 'Good Fellows'.
Ghost and Goblins? Moe, Larry, Curley and sometimes Shemp - well they'd take them all on in spite of themselves.
Curley rocking in a chair, suddenly jumping up, running to his accomplices, heard scream of a woman, scratching his leg with Larry's only response being - "Is that really all that bad? Leaving the haunted house after slumber party all in the same bed.
My calculated theorem is, if you want to tune out of what's going on now - just tune into 1960s Saturday morning T.V.
