Program Notes

This song was written in a fit of supreme silliness.

It started as a tweet by poet Maggie Smith, whose “Good Bones” I had recently finished setting. Another writer formatted the poem to look as though it were a poem published on Poets.org, and I ran with his joke.

For the song, I took the liberty of un-abbreviating the phrase “Casually af.”

“Oh Hell No” is also included in the Sparks & Wiry Cries songSLAM Songbook, Vol. 1, available from NewMusicShelf.
