When the square thinking is crap…. The red pen awaits

My memory takes me to back when in high school..must have been the prime of adolescence or was it the decline of puberty! and the love letter writing was top on the list…

So we would get all manner of phrases from songs..LL Cool J, Gerald Levert, and Boyz to Men, etc. and scribble to the gals..and they respond with fragrance scented missives!
That was then… creative perhaps…sometimes the intent to please and amaze failed to be realised…and the sweetheart would write back…angry and in RED..no wonder the song BIC ROUGE by Lutumba Simaro.

In this informative song from the Salle D’ Attente album, the great poet Simaro says of the painful cane of the red pen..be careful of the things you do…the bic rouge corrects the faults we do at work, relationships, whatever it is we go wrong in and at.
Bic Rouge…Rumbalicious!
