It was a brave attempt at progression - do you remember those noble days when artists used to try and progress? Rather than just repeat a winning formula? Nowhere is there a recyle of "Gilded Splinters" with a kids chorus. I think you must be referring to "The Patriotic Flag Waver" which is a rather quixotic (for a white Southerner) political 'protest' song. Mac loved jazz and was trying to inject some into his music - hence the wacked out arrangements and time signatures of the title track and "Black Widow Spider", to say nothing of the album's stoned centrepiece: "The Twilight Zone". For myself, the best track is "Glowin'".
