Back Where It Was At - Poem by David Harris

As our years get older
we have that yearning
to peel away those years
going back to the days
that we most enjoyed
back to where it was at.

Where we used to
dance the night away
to our favourite
artist of the day
and each generation
have artists of their own.

In the fifties, the Americans
lead the way with rock and roll
and Elvis was King
falling in his footsteps
other greats followed behind.

In the winter’s snow of February 1959,
the world was shocked
and a generation’s music died
in a plane crash
that claimed three lives.

In the sixties, the British
took the lead
handing out the change
with the Beatles
and the term Beatlemainia was born.

In the seventies Sweden
took the lead with ABBA
becoming the new Kings and Queens
with their catchy lyrics
and sing along songs.

As a testament of those days
back where it was at,
we buy reissued CD’s
to play and play, again
so we can relive once more
a time when we were young
back where it was at.
