Queen - Poem by Gordon D Wilkinson

Anticipation building up everywhere
So thick you could nearly cut the air
Blasting onto the arena stage came Queen
The greatest rock band ever been seen
Pyrotechnics banged and flashed to start the show
Lighting up the arena around in brilliant glow
Chords struck and the whole place erupted
Inside our heads minds numbed and corrupted
Blazing sounds so glitzy loud and strong
When Freddie Mercury started to sing my song
This place was rocking intensely full of pleasure
As the words that came from him “under pressure”
Song after song they belted out that night
Much to the audience’s and my sheer delight
For two hours songs oldies and some new
All of their songs everyone knew
The concert finished to my chagrin
At least I knew I had to this one, I had been

    I seen Queen playing in concerts at the movies, Wished that movie was around just so I could enjoy any time for my own pleasure. The sound and singing they produced stayed in my mind for ever. Thank you for the reminder of hearing the best. (Report)Reply
