The march is connected with both military and alternative political gatherings. Trying to understand the form, I've been listening to Purcell's Queen's Funeral March, the conga playing of Quebec Summit protestors and the strangely military snap of Old Mother Hubbard (performed by the US Air Force Band). Revisiting this nursery rhyme, I was struck by the revolutionary aspirations of the last verse: The dame made a curtsey, The dog made a bow; The dame said, "Your servant," The dog said, "Bow, wow."
