Jimi Hendrix - Poem by Stephen Wylie

There are two times in history,
Before Hendrix and after.
In a time of dull conformity,
Jimi came and set us free:
Banishing the black and grey,
The discipline that overstayed
World War Two's necessity.
He blew the war's cobwebs away,
Restored the colours we had lost,
In a glowing rock glasnost;
Helped us articulate our dreams,
Reduced the flow of silent screams.

    I like this line: He blew the war's cobwebs away, Restored the colors we had lost. Gives meaning to Jimi's music, that I had not realized before. Thank you for sharing this amazing poem. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    I was told Jimi Hendrix was a character on Baywatch. No?
    Dammit Daryl! My brother is such a fag.
    Nice write. I guess the thing to say is Peace brother? (Report) Reply
