star chaser



There's always another budding guitarist.

This one

able to practice thank's to a big parental loan

hoping that fame and fortune

might do him a life-long favour

and create a link up with the big boys of rock


he understands the possibility

of having to wait the fuck out of-when?

maybe watching his dream being shit on time after time


that's why I'm keyboard surfing in anger of course!

at the loss, the waste of someone

who sacrificed blood, sweat and so many nights out on the piss


sympathising on behalf of a fret hot fingerer

fucked off not just by money making fat arsed

parasitical picking and choosing non-players

but above all by lady luck


who turned a blind eye from day one

when he was podded out of

his mother's sliced open stomach


his young desires

left ungifted

whose destiny fate couldn't give a shit about.


There isn't and perhaps never will be

even though he may have the skills

to pale Hendrix into insignificance,

an appreciative, helping hand reaching out to him


only the hard arse kicking brief encounters

with so-called people in the know

who spoke only if the discussions were wrapped in money


well, fuck them man!

show me if no one else

with your fantastic passion for music and fiery fingers

how determination will always, always matter!

Isn't it crazy how many talented musicians/performers have died before the age of 30??? I myself hope to put some music out by then, hopefully, one can hope.😵 Keep it up 'til we clock out! Right Rose?!

Yeah, right place right time can easily beat skill and ability. Specially some of the 'acts' that do well in the TV talent shows that I don't watch! Like it Rose.
