    Punk !

    Back then we knew what it was
    T.V. screens were not our choice
    But we sold ourselves
    To a fashion
    Said it was
    Just more colourful than the last one

    First came the music
    And then the love
    But Punks were all disillusionment
    Trying to change the world
    With spit

    Even though we owned street corners
    Our dangerous traffic masks
    Of spikes and colours
    Dared to laugh
    At the brief cased pinstripe
    Clean shaven but still
    Breathing the twin set and pearl
    Of air pollution

    Opened up by violence
    Came the rebellious
    Tubes of glue and alcohol
    The graffiti we didn’t know
    Wrote our demise
    In the commercialised
    The raw heroes
    In the death of Syd Vicious and Johnny Rotten

    The driving guitar and screaming beat
    Strangler music went on
    But we went forgotten
    All those early punks
    A fashion icon
    Began in “ The Vortex “
    On the streets of London

    “ God Save The Queen “
    A safety pin
    Comes undone
    Our revolution
    Back then
    We knew
    We had no choice
    Accept to spit
    With another voice
    Like the music
    Like the hippies
    Turned into a cult

    They watched us all

    On T.V.

      I like where you are going with this. You have strong views and I appreciate that. I look forward to checking out more of your work and maybe you can get a chance to check out mine sometime. our writing styles are somewhat similiar. Keep up the creativity and always remember you can choose to not be just behind your tv regardless if that is how normal society operates.
