Crisis Poem

Crisis Poem was commissioned by Listenpony, and first performed at Listenpony #8, March 2015, by Ensemble WOW.

Written on a poem by Sam Riviere, from his book 81 Austerities, this song was later revisited and incorporated into William's Austerity Songs for song group SongSpiel. The above performance is by Felicity Turner, James Way and Natalie Burch of that group.
