iggy pop chairman of the bored

i got the predatory wriggle and the friendly grin.

via slash_girl, a soothing meme:

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

Friends say it's fine. Friends say it's good

My body is a cage that keeps me from dancing with the one I love.
We give to you a disc of gold that represents the dreams.
Pretty women out walking with gorillas down my street.
Such a night is such a night.

Alas my love you do me wrong.
You shine the headlight straight into my eyes.
So messed up I want you here.
Tell the rabble to be quiet we anticipate a riot.
I must. I must not.

Ribbon of darkness over me since my true love walked out the door.
Brainstorming habitforming battle-warning weary winsome.
There's life underground.
Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?

It's of a brave young highwayman this story we will tell.
Please please please no more melodies. Please please please no more maladies.
I'm gonna find my baby before that sun goes down.
Went to a party, I danced all night.
When I was a child the days whispered by.
Baby don't do it. Don't you do it.
Your date has gone home.

Heh, that worked well enough that I'm tempted to try it myself. :)
LOL what a fun meme! :)
Alas my love you do me wrong.
You shine the headlight straight into my eyes.

That is a glorious combination.
Hee. And the Iggy kind of knocks it out of the park.
That was the one that got me, too. My own turned out eerily effective, to a large extent - things like, "Take my love, take my land / We are living for tomorrow."
I second the "tomorrow when I am awake" comment, except I am banished from the internet tomorrow. So I will keep it in mind until Monday, like the lame duck I seem to be.

But I love that second stanza...
And yet again, proof of my out-of-it-ness. No music player . . .

Enjoying "Windwracked Stars".
Thank you.

There are free and handy music players available for both Windows and Apple. *g*
Oh, I have iTunes right here on the iMac. But I don't use it. Is that worse?
merely evidence of encroaching mental inflexibility. *g*
I keep looking around for the crank to wind it up . . .
Beautiful! Maybe I'll let myself do that to celebrate the end of EvIlWriMo.
Heh. I have been committing those as well. Most of mine turn out to be murder ballads or really warped love songs. Some may be both.
That'd get you into a half-dozen MFA programs, easy.
