(use your imagination. 1956, a coffee house, beat-Niks, a lone Soul sittin' on a stool, a lonely guitar, no applause... only the snap, snap, snap of fingers... recognizing the words...)

Dark!!!

Stark!!!
a Lonely Dog's Bark!!!

a Howell...llll...
Hell
on earth

atom Bombs

World War III

no reason to Be

old History

repeats It's Self
repeats It's self
repeats It's Self

snap, snap, snap
applause

a timely pause

a refrain
from the insane

Old Hippies
yet to be born

Peace & Love

Drugs...Free Sex
that is not so Free
babies...
named cloud, or Blue
any color would do

passin' thru
the Dark...
a beatnicks Heart

James Dean
jimmy dean

the 50's
fat & lean

world war II
thought that would do
but we all see WWIII

now,
somehow,
we got WWB3

snap, snap, snap
applause
a timely pause

Elvis the Pelvis
jerry Lee
The beatles
a Rollin' Stone
Cat Stevens

Kharma
CHRISTIANITY
buddism
hin-do-ism

where is the LIGHT
lost
in The Starkness
of THE DARKNESS

rock-n-roll
take a stroll
walk
don't Run
live Life

snap-snap-snap
an applause
a timely pause

use your imagination
just a suggestion

go back in time
find a long last rhyme

snap-snap-snap
a timley clap

a coffee house
a lone soul
a guitar
a song
a poem
a lonely write
in the night
in the light
of day

lost in The Darkness
the Starkness
of Tomorrow

Today
passes away
into Yesterday

into the DARKNESS

This is one very well written solo...I could see this cowboy sitting there playing his ghitar...as dshodows covers his face...I can just see his teeth shining in the passing moon!!

See you took me on a trip with this one!!

Love Tinka
