The Music Scene

So you
wanna know
about the scene, kid?

Functional alcoholics
Drug addicts
of some shape or form
most of 'em

there's the
starry-eyed pretenders
hoping and praying

that someday
some mogul will
walk through the door.

fat chance of that.

gigging for
a few hundred bucks a
night maybe not already

there's the day job
unwinder type

never quite made it
he realizes it

that's the worst part
beware the male ego

there's the female
all about finger-picking

what she perceives
to be deep and pithy

but really just tortured

actually, you
oughta feel sorry for 'em, kid.

each and every
last one.

-6 April 2007.
