Have you ever written
unlocking & translating emotions into strings?
Have you adopted metaphors from stories
of a trumpet with his man called Dizzy?
Have you spoken Italian simply because
music taught you so?
Do you make references to songwriters
maybe Bob Dylan & his blowing wind,
or Pink writing to the President?
Have you found music gives poetry power
turns sad words into blue songs where notes bend
& give service to the downtrodden with all their trials?
Have you protested with melodies
enticing your audience to believe, grow & change
& did you stand up for the universal soldier who
needed to be free?
Have you listened to songs of the universe
giving the world purple Princes
& divine guitar riffs . . .
Have you stayed up all night
listening for your special music
to guide you on your way?
Have you asked a million questions
