Number 9

"You say you want a revolution" screamed the four,
John, Paul, George and Ringo beat down the door.
Melody and harmony and Brit sex appeal gone anti-war
Nine times round the turn table with Yoko, hardcore. 
Fab stereo artists with composite collages for musical scores,
they kicked, whined, smoked and dined in venues top-drawer.
Number 9 was the cut most radical by lore
chaos, poetry, and prose composed with sound effects galore,
a sandwiched montage of "what are you looking for?"

    Hmmm!same old Debbie.

    I was thinking Love Potion #9, but this is also a familiar reference. I remember playing an album backwards for the hidden messages. Best of luck inthe contest.

    I love it when someone explores art and/or music with poetry. Great tribute to the White Album you have here. While my Guitar Gently Weeps is one of my all time fave songs. Revolution 9... ahead of its time. Great piece, Sis. :) Still no postcard, but I am enjoying the anticipation. Today it is so "right now, 24/7" What happened to the gift of waiting? Like waiting for the next album, next novel, next date :) Hugs Cyndi

    Wow- I definitely expect to see this amazing poem in the winners list! This is sensational, Debbie! Great job! Hugs :)

    It is a very good poem, but I am so far out of the context, i guess I just cant appreciate more than the technical aspects. Never was one for having intelligent conversation about contemporary artistry, their theatre or venue.

    super poem...great qustion at end....yesterday some chick bought me a beat up old denim jacket and on the back i drew a peace symbol, and a bunch of innocuous words i.e. to you know a thousand babies probably died today?...and a few others..then i wrote #9 #9 #9 #9 and everyone wondered why...first of all John's #9 ran rampant through his life...if you don't know this he died in NY at 8:00 but in England it was already 9P.M. great poem YOUR PAL PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~

    Debbie very well crafted, saw the fab four when I was knee high to a grasshopper...card arrived today you quite obviously had a wonderful time I must put it on my list...David

    I think you were really into the fab four, Deb. I was just a teeny bopper and didn't know all this stuff about them. A very intelligent and well crafted poem for the 9 contest!

    Wow Debbie, you sure have outdone yourself with this take on "9". A winner for sure and little history to boot woven in. Love !!
