Blissed out from 5:00am yoga. Savoring the stillness back at the house. Freshly brewed coffee steaming in my cup. Is that a bluejay on the fence?
In the background, barely audible:
Ridin’ down the highway
Goin’ to a show
Is that my radio?
Stop in all the by-ways
Playin’ rock ‘n’ roll
Turn the dial to the right, just a bit.
Turn the dial up to 3. Shhh, quiet.
Gettin’ beat up
Up to 6. Sorry.
If you think it’s easy doin’ one night stands
Try playin’ in a rock ‘n’ roll band
10. Subwoofers engaged. Somebody stop me.
It’s a long way to the top
If you wanna rock ‘n’ roll
Drums. Multivitamin. Angus air guitar. Where is that skirt suit? Bagpipes. More drums! Don’t spill the coffee. Bass! Guitar! Bagpipes! Bring! On! The! Day!
