Signs Of Greater Age (42)

1-Not only have you lost the will
to keep up with popular music,
but you can't remember when
your one time favourite artists
made music that refreshed their profile
and surprised both their public and critics.

2-Forgetting who was the spokesman
for your generation, Bob Dylan?
Pete Townshend? Jerry Garcia?
or for younger people Morrissey,
or Billy Bragg. Because with age
their generation lost what set them apart
from what surrounded them.
The very idea of a leader whose music
personified their leadership died
when print media lost it's primacy.
