How soon is now?

How soon is now?

A Poem by Lex

Some of my favourite song lyrics from some truly inspirational songwriters and my little praise of them.


Little fish big fish

Swimming in the water

Weak as I am

I fall for your laughter


I am one

As you are three


I want to be of the beautiful people

I am on your list?


Sick to death of Labour and Torries

And spit upon the name

Oliver Cromwell

And denounce this royal line that still salutes them

And will salute them, forever ... 


For this is my ode

to those smarter than I

In the hope that I can emulate

And move my mind


I'll try


I'll always try

For a bit of fun, can you name me the artists behind these exceptional lyrics?

I can't name any artists... How sad! :(

But, I really enjoyed this one! I've wanted to write something like this (with my favorite lyrics), but was never sure how it would end up.

This is difficult to review intent, which I don't really do, anyway. You are very political in this. It is well written. All I know of Cromwell, was he was so hated, that I believe they found his body after a battle and hung him. That's hate. Were these your words, or words from a songwriter ? I found this interesting, because of your interest in the politics of Scotland. Plus I have to confess I love Scotland because of it's history with golf. I know...I'm shallow. hee hee. Great piece. Rain..

Glasgow, Scotland

I'm 25, and I'm from Glasgow in Scotland. I've lived in a few other places, briefly in both Australia and England but Glasgow is definitely home for me. I love writing and have doing it as long as I.. more..
