80s tunes were all about punk…no rock anthems here.
from the first sound of feedback,
my career started like that Billy Idol tune about
dangerous liaisons with
dangerous broads from parts of town no one wanted to see:
and a little arrogant.
fist in the air for strength and power
for those who could not speak truth to power
to teach them how to speak truth to power
so I didn’t have to keep doing it for them…
“teach a kid to fish,” and all that.
all that rebel yelling
even if it irritates the ones around me who do not want to see
the youth around them…or anything beyond the tips of their noses.
for them, I have saved my favorite gesture…
