A Rock Music History

Alternative and Metal
Musical relatives under
The Rock family.

Great grandfather Blues
The common ancestor
That crossed the pond.

Bluegrass and Folk
Several times removed uncles—
Same Celtic origins.

Thoughts While on Spring Break

These weathered mountains of old

Colored by the souls who call them home

Enchanted by steeped history

And buildings of ages past.


A foreigner to hillscapes

People bumper to—

Hey, can I cut you off?

Craziness which borders insanity,

Leaves me shaking my head.

…And I thought Tampa was bad?


A sign to remind passersby

Of smoking muskets and war cries

Stands stoically on that lonesome hill

As I fly right on by.
