Two Left Beats

They sing; they bring
That Beatle-fab scream
Of love-change-spring --
New, quick-beat theme.

A change like Revolver.
My heart's Rubber Soul,
That gear autumn solver
I won with hand-in-bowl.

Predecessors who inspired:
Richard, Storm and Berry;
Presley and Dylan (wired);
Perkins and Donovan (very).

Indian, vaudeville, ragtime:
Music-videos are the future.
In Pepperland awash in rhyme,
This "All Together Now" looper....

Thanks, Sandra -- but, after reading (and listening to) Seeker's entry, I highly doubt it will be me who takes home the win. ;-)

Tom, what else of yours can I see? I know I have seen all your recent poems. Can you suggest for me an older one I may not have seen? Something you really liked of yours? I am so behind in comments. I have to get through my WHOLE page of comments before going to serve in church library at 12. Wish me luck!!

I love this, Tom. They are the group I was considering for this contest. But I want to be unique. Wait for what i will do. haha. I wonder if you will even have heard of them! I enjoyed the playfulness of the words in your poem.

A great rhythmic synopsis of the Beatles, not unlike a medley...:-)
