Redneck Metalhead - Poem by Zen Bojczuk

Answered the survey. I 'm a redneck metalhead!
Touch of emo, punk, and Goth the results said
Evanescence ~ my favorite band. Amy Lee!
Even at work, as windows wallpaper is she

Seen big names: U2, Stones, and The Who
Even one country concert - Yes, its true
Love discovering new talent unknown
Bands from overseas or locally grown

Eclectic in music tastes I most certainly am
Even like Dean Martin - that's not a scam
I've gotten lost in many a mellow love song
But in solid hard rock does my heart belong

Liked some jazz way back in high school
Sultry soft women's voices make me drool
But I preferred bands who belt out a song
To the strong voices do my ears belong

On my guitar I never really learned to play
But a solid guitar riff I still love to this day
..Smoke on the water.. Fire in the sky..
Music entered within and I would just fly

Black Sabbath - first concert I ever did see
On motorcycles friends would often see me
'Born to be Wild' ~ a hit when I heard it live
Concerts moved me ~ made me feel alive

Love black, but tripp pants I don't wear
Know if I did, people would certainly stare
Once a rocker, always a rocker (so I'm told)
I just don't look it..cause I'm over-the-hill old.

    How about 'Inna Gadda Da Vida' Whoa! Music that could grab you by the shirt collar, shake you like a rat, then pet you like a cat! ! I entered college in 1967...so, you know what I know! Guns and Roses, U2, uh...your poem...see what you did? Got me all involved with things you said in this fine, fine work! Don't forget 'Salt n Peppa'. Great poem! ! ! Search for cd's begins! ! ! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

    Hey...look at all the bands that are coming back for a second time! Rod Stewart is well up there in years, and can still make the ladies swoon (and just got married for the? time...) So...enjoy yourself, that's what I say...and as soon as my kids teach me hip-hop..I'll let you know! !
