    Gutter Blues

    It's all so blue, not sunny sky blue but in the gutter blue
    The news is never good
    Losing so much so fast
    were soft bellied 21 century Americans
    we don't like such gloom and doom
    we like bright colors and fast cars and jeans with shiny stuff on the back pockets
    it's hard to sparkle these days when the jobs have disappeared
    like a puddle on a hot day
    this all sucks
    we don't want to be frugal and cautious
    we wanna rock and roll
    we wanna dance
    we wanna sing
    But now we just sing the blues, the dirty low down gutter blues
    that aint got no rythem

    Oh this is definitely one special piece of poetry that I have come across in this contemporary mess we face. Your right, you should be rocking and rolling not worry about whether your jobs gonna end or the fact there are not many that pay the rent. Yep, there is no rhythm left.......

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
