Radio Ode - Poem by Charlie F. Kane

Wake up in the morning
To the sound of a familiar voice.
In the car wherever you’re going,
The sounds from the radio keep you moving.
Invisible airwaves flying through the air,
Humming with life and sounds and music
That keeps you going on.

Shelley had his skylark,
Charlie had his muse,
All I’ve got is this radio,
So this one’s for you.

Playing that song you’ve got
Stuck in your head when you switch it on,
It keeps you humming through the day.
Playing that song you haven’t heard it ages,
The smile as the intro starts and the song begins.
The sounds of a guitar solo get you moving,
Carries with you throughout the day.

Shelley had his skylark,
Charlie had his muse,
All I’ve got is this radio,
So this one’s for you.

The power of the music,
Changes the way you feel,
Bringing you up when you feel down,
All from the patter of your radio.
I believe that music will last forever,
In 2112 they’ll still bob about to their favourite tune,
All coming from the power of the radio.

Shelley had his skylark,
Charlie had his muse,
All I’ve got is this radio,
So this one’s for you.
