Another one of my poems...

Flotsam and Jetsam



We are like flotsam and jetsam bobbing on the tide

Moving here and there, being pushed and pulled

Further and further from where we began

Without hope of ever returning , to that far off beginning



Far from those that were our anchor

That grounded us and kept us from harm

Far from the innocent games we once played

Far, Far from those halcyon days



We in mind, as sharp as ever

Whilst our bodies decay

The Poet



It’s the hard edge that makes it real

The grittiness that makes you feel

The bitterness really comes across

And makes you feel the poets’ loss



He’s a tortured man, a lonely man

A man for whom nothing fits in place

His books and his words are everything

I’ve seen them write sunshine on his face



For in the world of normal men

He moves without a trace

But when he reads on a Thursday night

It’s with aplomb and… Continue

Flotsam and Jetsam

We are like flotsam and jetsam bobbing on the tide
Moving here and there, being pushed and pulled
Further and further from where we began
Without hope of ever returning , to that far off beginning

Far from those that were our anchor
That grounded us and kept us from harm
Far from the innocent games we once played
Far, Far from those halcyon days

We in mind, as sharp as ever
Whilst our bodies decay
Lost forever in our thoughts
Of long passed times

Never quite able it seems
To get a hold of the reigns
To make a sense of it, this condition
This painful passing of time

Flotsam and jetsam we have been
And are likely to remain
Drifting on and endless tide
Moving with its ebb and flow

The words prolific and versatile come to mind. If you sing your own songs you have quite the range, but something tells me you hired ABBA to sing 70's guy. I think ABBA are brilliant, by the way. I hear many different influences. I got to the jukebox, but the coins got stuck in my DVD... I can't seem to get the list back, everytime I click on the arrow I get 1970's guy. Good production on what I was able to hear. I'll check out more when I have more time.

I do not believe you can delete a song in the quick add thingy. You have to use the 'Momma' add song page that allows you to add/delete 4 songs at a time. From the Home page, Add Content gets you there, it should read Add/Delete Content. Haha.

Recorded in my bedroom using Logic and a beat up Hagstrom Swede. Thanks again.
