The Band!

Excitement was high as the growing audience

waited with anticipation

for the heavy metal band to come on stage

known for outrageous shows

and their interest in occult and devil worship

it would be the ultimate trip!


Ferocious Beast name of the six member band

came upon the large stage

with a crescendo of sound and flashing lights

through thick dried ice smoke

leather clad with black menacing face paint

starting without constraint!


Into their set the band pounded the loud music

soon the mesmerizing voice

of the bewitching lead singer reverberated out

everyone listening was hooked

as if hypnotised by the clear words and tone

for them the seed was sown!


Huge speakers broadcast every syllable and notes

to the audiences willing ears

demonic images flashed onto viewing screens

at a pulsating high-definition pace

as cowled figures mingled amongst the throng

the intensity became strong!


Into the night the passion excelled to fever pitch

physically and mentally exhausted

they collapsed as the band left the stage in triumph

their message had been delivered

bedded into memories of the fans and believers

who had been welcome receivers!


The band moved onto their next awaiting disciples!


The Foureyed Poet.







Elvis Presley!

Nineteen thirty-five was the year

Elvis Presley was born.

Then seventy-seven was the year

that all his fans would mourn.

He came from a humble background

yet he rose to great heights.

Elvis was soon heading star-bound

his name in bright lights.

Millions truly loved his sound

with a voice so tender.

The king of rock and roll was found

filling hearts with pure splendour.

So much has been said and written

about Elvis the man.

But true followers were smitten

each one a real fan.

He gave them tremendous pleasure

though his time was so short.

Creating such fun-filled leisure

all his music was sought.

Elvis’s memory will always live on

in so many sad hearts.

The champion to thrill the throng

singing in many film parts.

Fan’s really could not believe

when Elvis passed away.

Or ever wanted to conceive

the bad stories anyway.

The king will go on forever

an image that cannot fade.

His spirit lives on forever

history’s entry made.

I remember this time forty years ago! Amazing singer and Performer. A very sad end. But his voice and songs will live on forever. For me always a big Fan!
