    Default RockMusic as poetry, King would smile.

    I suggest that you dont use the chorus of a song more then once or twice.
    You can leave odd punctuation , so that its ' E.E. Cumming-ish '
    if you know of some of the songs that are Kings Fav's
    please post'um here . below I have made a "Bullet" ref' !


    WHEN THE BULLET HITS THE BONE

    (somewhere in a lonely hotel room,
    there's a guy starting to realize
    that eternal fate has turned its back on him,
    it's two a.m...........)

    It's two a.m., the fear has gone
    I'm sittin' here waitin', the gun still warm
    Maybe my connection is tired of takin' chances
    Yeah there's a storm on the loose, sirens in my head
    I'm wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
    I cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzy

    Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
    the place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
    My beacon's been moved under moon and star
    Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
    Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
    the place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
    My beacon's been moved under moon and star
    Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
    Soon you will come to know,
    when the bullet hits the bone
    Soon you will come to know, when the bullet hits the bone

    I'm falling down a spiral, destination unknown
    A double-crossed messenger, all alone
    I can't get no connection, can't get through, where are you
    Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
    This far from the borderline
    and when the hit man comes
    he knows damn well he has been cheated...

    I am surprised at you guys...

    If you need the lyrics to a song you simply
    google the name followed by the word lyrics.

    example : " Martha My Dear, lyrics" will give you
    free sites that have the words to it.
    DO NOT ever pay for it.

    then you simply post them here as a poem.

    Post real poems , if you like that idea better


    The thinnest bear is awakened in the winter
    by the sleep-laughter of locusts,
    by the dream-blustering of bees,
    by the honeyed scent of desert sands
    that the wind carries in her womb
    into the distant hills, into the houses of Cedar.

    The bear has heard a sure promise.
    Certain words are edible; they nourish
    more than snow heaped upon silver plates
    or I is overflowing golden bowls. Chips of ice
    from the mouth of a lover are not always better,
    nor a desert dreaming always a mirage.
    The rising bear sings a gradual canticle
    woven of sand that conquers cities
    by a slow cycle. His praise seduces
    a passing wind, traveling to the sea
    wherein a fish, caught in a careful net,
    here is a bear’s song in the cool-scented snow.

    Tabitha King (1969)
    in Stephen King’s On Writing (2000)

    Grandpa was a carpenter,
    he built houses, stores and banks,
    he chain-smoked Camel cigarettes
    and hammered nails in planks.
    He was level-on-the-level,
    shaved even every door,
    and voted for Eisenhower
    'cause Lincoln won the war.


    "That's one of my favorite John Prine lyrics..."
