Tuesday Chatter 91

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 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

Slang it, dang it!-bounce-to leave (lets bounce); bunk-crazy-messed up; buzz hype-awesome; buzz kill-boring; fine-looking good; good-to-go-all set; let’s roll-let’s leave; Man, that is clean-that is righteous; straight-that’s true

 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-peasies

-Eugenia

  1. And nobody seems to worry about what an easily provoked President might be doing in the future?
    How’s that? The rest of the world seem to be?!

  2. I think Freddy Mercury becomes more respected as a musician the more time that passes.

  3. Freddie Mercury was a genius Eugenia and it hard to believe how quickly the time has passed since his death. Funny enough I was listening to the album Sheer Heart Attack a few days ago. What was your favourite Queen album?
