Best Tim Ryerson Poems

+ Fav Poet


Dion Warwick shook me awake this morning
unfairly accusing me of being a 'Heartbreaker'

Over coffee, Neil Diamond chimed in
with his girlfriend 'Sweet Caroline'

The Allman Brothers piled in my car
and did a punishing version of 'Whippin' Post'

J. S. Bach pranced with precision beside me at work
conducting 'Brandenburg Concertos'

Cocky ole Waylon Jennings relieved him after lunch
braggin' that he was a 'Honky-Tonk Hero'

Aretha Franklin nagged me all the way home
claiming I didn't show enough 'Respect'

Jimi Hendrix freaked me out in the shower
with a shocking dose of 'Purple Haze'

Had dinner at 'MacArthur's Park' with Donna Summer
(They served some rather soggy cake for dessert)

Then the whole gang treated me to an evening concert
by the Royal Scottish Bagpipes performing 'Amazing Grace'

Wiping my tears, I bid them God's speed and goodnight
Can't WAIT to see who's on tap for tomorrow...

    What would our lives be without music? I think you've probably mentioned your faves and have to say they make my day too. Really nice Tim and so different...variety is spice! :)

    Beautiful write! It's amazing how much music affects our lives especially when a tune gets stuck in your head, then you go all day humming!
