Hey, c’mon in and have a cuppa at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe. A place where the clocks don’t know night from day, and we can chat about what may or may not happen. We like to dwell on thought-provoking and undeniably doubtful drivel.
Nineteen ninety-one, mother nature wreaks havoc worldwide instigating various types of weather events resulting in destruction and loss of life-Cyclone in Bangladesh, fires in Oakland, Ca, 7.0 on the Richter Scale quake in Northern Italy, 6.8 on the Richter Scale quake near border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, Typhoon Kinna hits western Japan, seventy tornadoes swirling in the central US.
Concerns continue about the health of the earth due to a 2% decrease in the ice covering the Arctic over a 10-year span, and the Tropical Rainforest is shrinking by 1% a year. Those concerns are continuing to the present day, as conditions have worsened.
1991 is a sad year for music due to the death of Freddie Mercury, the lead singer for the band Queen. He announced he was HIV positive and died due to complications from the disease the next day. He was 45. Mercury wrote several hit songs for Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody, We are the Champions, Somebody to Love, and Crazy Little Thing Called Love, to name a few.
I won’t be a rock star. I will be a legend.- Freddie Mercury
When I’m dead, I want to be remembered as a musician of some worth and substance. -Freddie Mercury
Playground bullies, they like to play games
You know the type so start taking names
You gotta watch standing in the same old place
If you want to clink cups you have to save face
Walk or run in the rain confuses the sane
But paper doll people best learn to refrain
Their flimsy persona filled with fraught
Yes, it’s profound so noodle the thought
Boundaries have no lines you know the drill
With your wanderlust attitude life is a thrill
Shake a tail feather now life’s grand or bland
I’m hitching a ride to join a rock and roll band
Stopping on the way at the local speakeasies
Looking to make friends with the easy-peasy
Let’s Meet & Greet one another at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe
