Rolling Back The Rock

Going back to playing vinyl forty fives
Singing "doo wop" on every street corner
Cigarette rolled sleeve or muscle shirt
That was the fifties
Moving forward to a changing time
Where music and politics
Did not rhyme
Motown Afros and Dashikis
Marching in time
To a new culture
Rhythm spitting out anger
Janis Joplin singing Mercedes Benz
Sounds change with the flow of time
Poetry's energy writing songs
A slamming reflection
I can't get no satisfaction
And the beat goes on

I am a professional jazz musician originally from New York and now residing in Florida. I started writing poetry three years ago and have been published.
