why make such a mess of a simple yet dramatic poem? I was going to give it to my grandson now I may just erase it. the narrator has gone compleately over the top with reverb and unessesary and overbearing effects, again WHY? the poem is dramatic, read it with passion yes but don't, as in this case, obliterate the words with technical wizardry and for the first 5 minutes make the poem uninteligable, even to someone who has known it for several decades, just WHY?
