we will rock you/we are the champions

The market goes up

and the market goes down

the sun will appear and

the world will turn round

your birthday will find you

wherever you hide

learn to embrace

you’re feelings inside

roll with the punches

as best as you can

explore what’s out yonder

but stay on the plan

accept what is offered

and like what you got

be open to change

and smile a lot

it is what you make it

so play your best hand

cause everyone’s dancing

on a floor of quick sand

-----------------------------------------

things look so different

the older you get

what once was important

you want to forget

life works to mold you

like a bundle of clay

adding more detail

every day

the more we take shape

the harder to change

what you see in the mirror

you can’t pre-arrange

life’s gonna happen

sure as flies flock to shit

don’t obsess over detail

and don’t be a twit

excellent stuff and here for a moment after I read the title I though you were going to parody queen because of the title of said poem. this is a real cool conveyed message here. I took in much from this so thank you. enjoyed.

thanks for the kind words...I started out writing one version and ended up with two separate poems...I put them in tandem and it made me think of the songs...so I had my title

I always thought I should take some responsibility.


That comes from a sense of community, in my book.


But these days - where is the community?


It looks to be in the mini-keyboards everyone is staring at.


I think not.



But I have to agree with these lines . . .


"things look so different


the older you get


what once was important


you want to forget"

Sounds like a mantra for survival: Most ordinary folk only have limited control over their lives and tend to make the best of circumstances.

Like Gatekeeper I also picked out the lines:

 

"things look so different

the older you get

what once was important

you want to forget"

Perhaps because most of my allocated time is behind me.. B :smile:
