Today’s poem can be sung to the tune of The Big Rock Candy Mountain. I discovered this song when I watched the excellent “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” by the Coen brothers. Check out the song and the movie, because they are both worth your time. Alright, the poem starts in 3… 2… 1!
you have such a gift for rhythm and meter punit, my goodness!
This song Cadillac is diving me into a wild place, man! Thanks for the vibes!
Excellent poem! I love the story telling, the rhythm and the message in this one. Nostalgia as a drug is a great image, and juxtaposing the Palace of the Past to the Playground of the Present is so bang on. Brilliant.
It looks like a longer poem, but once you get reading it doesn't feel that long. So, for me, no issue with sharing longer poems, too.
It's been a while since I've seen that movie! Loved it when I first saw it. A movie only the Coen brothers can make. Basically all they do is full of suprises, wonderful characters and turning and twisting stories. Thanks for reminding me to go and watch some of their movies again.
