I managed to miss the Mad Lib week, so please excuse me for this being a somewhat latecomer.
I asked the forever supportive Victoria to provide me with some words to play with and this is what she left for me.
V- To play
V- To seduce
V- To shadow
I am still confused how what came to mind actually came to mind, it was one of those out of nowhere moments, somewhere between deja vu and a flashback. So, this is the result of that 30 minutes of completely lost time where I am sure, if someone put a gun to my head, I still could not tell them what happened. Wierd.
The question may, or may not arise,
To play or not to play?
I read the words, but the image,
Was lost to my sight,
I was absorbed in this creative wonderland,
Only words lay before me?
Maniacal guitar riffs,
From the age of the electric dawn,
Sound in the deep recess of the hour,
The creative minds,
Of axemen and bards,
Seduce the follower, toward
Unfathomable melancholic meditation.
Drums, throb with a strenuous rhythm,
I swear, Bonham and Moon were laughing, their
A lycanthropic disguise?
But no, I wont get fooled again,
This aint no stairway to heaven baby!
Somewhere, a silver bullet band played my tune.
The question, though
Was never in doubt to these monsters of rock.
Cast its eerie shadow beyond our manic twosome,
Resting in its periphery,
Sat Jimi alongside Marc in a purple haze,
Those metal guru’s of history,
Watching, The Voodoo Child metamorphose,
Into the miscreant mutant,
Of the unholiest Black Sabbath.
Who told you hell aint a bad place to be?
Someone out there,
I know not who,
Maybe the fool on the hill?
Called the karma police.
The arrests were brutal,
In their intensity,
The acid days,
Were long ago banished,
John Bonham: Drummer with Led Zeppelin, sadly deceased.
Keith Moon: Drummer with The Who, sadly deceased
Monsters of Rock: A open air rock concert held at Castle Donnington racetrack. Applicable to Bonham and Moon as well.
Jimi and Marc: Hendrix and Bolan of course.
Karma Police: A song by Radiohead.
Other song titles are in there as well, some you will recognize, some maybe not.
