A sample of their lyrics:
Ursula K. LeGuin
She spoke of the dichotomy 'twixt nature and technology.
Her Hainish stories began an ambitious chronology.
Some authors should teach a course on deviant psychology,
her course would be cultural anthropology.
'The Dispossessed' is a masterpiece of anarcho-syndicalism.
'The Left Hand of Darkness' held gender analysis and assured feminism.
You were always coming home to all aspects of utopianism.
Will earth survive to justify your optimism?
Ooh ah Ursula Ooh ah Ursula!
