HBO slaps takedown demand on 13-year-old girl's painting because it used 'Winter is coming'

Uffish

Prior use ?

Ezra Pound (Lustra, 1916):

Winter is icumen in,

Lhude sing Goddamm,

Raineth drop and staineth slop,

And how the wind doth ramm!

Sing: Goddamm.

Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,

An ague hath my ham.

Freezeth river, turneth liver,

Damm you; Sing: Goddamm.

Goddamm, Goddamm, 'tis why I am, Goddamm,

So 'gainst the winter's balm.

Sing goddamm, damm, sing goddamm,

Sing goddamm, sing goddamm, DAMM.

(a parody of the the 13th century song "Sumer Is Icumen In").

And all sing "Goddamm, DAMM the fartwits at HBO".
