BABA O’RILEY NAKED

 

*scroll down for YouTube video*

 

Strumming The Who’s

Baba O’Riley

(Or Teenage Wasteland

As I always called it)

On an acoustic ukulele

Is like eating grapes

Rather than drinking wine

Yet the unfermented fruit

Intoxicates me anyway…

UNELECTRIFIED

 

In a land where lightning often strikes

Causing electric power spikes

I’m happy and relieved to be

Playing acoustic ukulele

Unplugged, one with Nature

Cloudy chords written in diurnal portraiture
