Poetry – MUSIC IS THE MEDIUM OF CHANGE

MUSIC IS THE MEDIUM OF CHANGE

Consumer units

Dreaming of lottery wins

To own or not to own

But you cannot take it with you

I’ll defend it with my life

Building the future

Legalize the medicine

That takes away the pain

In front of the silver screen

Sanitizing the insane

Sometimes I wonder what the average person (if there is such a one) would do with £25 million when they get bored on a rainy day? It appears to me that life is vacuous for most people and lacking in substance.

No wonder some turn to religion. It fills the gap. The trouble is that, from my perspective, it fills the gap with something unreal.

I yearn for creativity. Music was the vehicle for the raising of my sensibilities. It got me thinking and bopping.

I'd like to hear from you...
