Bruce #John Bonham # Joey Dunlop

Springsteen the Boss
Is seventy one
Some troubadour
Some son of a gun
Pied beauty made
Rose moles on trout
All dappled things
Not ones to pout
Way down Tom Waits
And his Grapefruit Moon
One Star Shining
With gravelesque croon
Thumping John Bonham
No picker of crumbs
Forty years gone
A beast on the drums
No place on deck
For filthy coal stokers
Reserved for the cream
And fine Cuban smokers
Harebells are hanging
In western grykes
One step from heaven
Alpine hay pikes
Isle of Man’s king
A life at the top
A rocket on wheels
Joey Dunlop.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte.
