September 10th...”WERE YOU EVER IN A ROCK N ROLL BAND?”
POEM – “We Boys Made Noise” by N. Elliott Noorlun
We boys made noise, In the days gone by,
When every kid, Would at least try.
To be “The King”, And try to sing,
And pluck a tune, On that guitar thing.
Even though six strings, Were made of junk,
We’d see ourselves, As the kings of hunk.
I’m sure we all thought, That we were cool,
To please the girls, And make them drool.
Good thing we stayed, Inside garage,
As we attempted to make, A tune massage.
Larry n Steve, n Clyde n me,
Us 60’s kids, We shared some glee.
Our sound rattled the tools, And stirred up dust,
But moms n dads, They never cussed,
So we’d turn up the amplifiers for fun,
And watch those dogs n kitty cats run!
A popular song, Back in our day,
We tried to emulate and play,
We must’ve played it, A million times,
In hopes that folks, Would throw us dimes,
Or maybe dollars, A recording deal?
To thoughts of stardom, Our minds would steal.
To this day, When I hear that song,
It’s back to those teenage, Days I long.
But you know what touched my heart the most?
T’was a Bible verse, Owned by our host.
It was on a plaque, In a father’s shop,
That caused my teenage, Eyes to pop.
No matter the music, Or what I do,
My loving Lord, Is watching, too.
It’s the music of, Our life He sees,
So it is my aim, for Him to please.
