Jimi Hendrix


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 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

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.

To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
