    My Sixth Decade

    I was born when folks liked IKE
    I watched the Presidents funeral on TV
    I didn’t know what the Great Society was
    but every night Chet and Dave gave me the body count
    Goodnight Chet, Goodnight Dave
    Cynicism was born
    I cheered when Erlichmann, Haldeman, and Liddy went down
    I laughed at the buffoon. I watched SNL
    I did NOT vote for RAYGUN
    maybe if…
    Bush kept what’shisname out
    Clinton scared the living hell out me
    more and more
    The commies lost
    How did we get him
    I cheered and danced as Florida complained
    I played the National Anthem at 0:01 01/01/00

    Elvis sang about his wingtips
    People really liked Patsy Cline…then
    Strawberry Alarm Clock
    We dug
    The Grateful Dead. Bowie, Hot Tuna, Black Oak, Foghat, Procul Harum, ELP, Sweet and of course
    The Beatles
    despite that Disco thing
    ClashFearSexPistolsDeadKennedysXTCMissionofBurmaRamonesTalkingheadsBlondieX
    then came that whole newwavething
    Modern English,Squeeze,Flock of Seagulls,StrayCats,Animotion,Human League,Specials,FunBoyThree,Bananarama,Berlin,Madness and Elvis Costello
    Tom Waits
    Laurie Andersen
    Eventually along came Nirvana, REM, De La Soul, nine Inch nails, Run DMC, KoRn, Godsmack, Alanis Morrisette, Tool and Jewel
    In this dawn of the 21st time I’m glad to see
    Uncle Ted is still touring
    there is a band called, “And you will know us by the trail of dead”
    We are still strong
    just like we were told we were
    when we lived on kidville time
    Welcome to my 6th decade
