Written for: dVerse Poets, Meeting the Bar – Bob Dylan (posted by Bjorn)
Today your challenge is easy. Write a poem based on Bob Dylan. It can be personal, it can be based on his lyrics (remember to give credit in that case) or it even can be why you think that he’s a lousy poet or singer, maybe you can tie it to politics… The choice is yours.
A voice for my generation,
he sang of what was in our hearts,
Masters of War were killing a nation.
Loneliness explored in Lay, Lady, Lay,
and fun with Jackie’s pill box hat.
Warmth in Shelter From The Storm.
Escape from Maggie’s Farm,
encouraged people to be themselves.
All his dreams were filled with charm.
How many years can some people exist
until they’re allowed to be free?
Sad to say relevance persists.
