BLACK” BY POPULAR DEMAND
~A Ode To The Qe2~Read At Mid-Night

So;

Ask a poet for an epic poem about eternity,
It’s not so easy to write about.

But I can tell you, and I’ll tell you all about this,
About a time in a city in a place
In a club on a street in a world, a parallel universe
Called Albany, NY in a club
Once called “The QE2”

Where the dance of a thousand dancers rang true,
And the voices of the muse, the music screamed
Thru us, the very soul of our youth …

And Was “Real”

And made a sound like thunder
As it tore out the speakers
And sold us sanctuary
Like some punk~goth messiah beggars
In a temple with the shroud of a pop-art
Goddess icon named Edie which adorned
The wall upon the stage,

Right over “There”

A place where every week
Every weekend
We all came to worship

In the decadence
Of another age

As all time changed,
Dissipated away and
Left us all here
With our memories.

Of:

ANARCHY
REVOLUTION

LEATHER DARKNESS
AND EVERY THING
IN

“BLACK”

VAMPIRES AND
CONDUCTORS

ARTISTS, POETS
AND THE MAKERS
OF THE SOUND, THE SCENE

All of us there for only one reason only
As the dance & the music overtook us
Upon the stage as a beautiful angel
With her long blonde hair
Watched over us

From the bar.

Back in “The Day”

So have another drink my friends
And “Dance”

For this time it will never pass
Our way “Again”

And remember this place that
Has never left our hearts, minds
And souls …

Or memories,

SO LONG LIVE THE QUEEN !

LONG LIVE THE QE2!

“BLACK”

By Popular Demand;

And The DJ?

The DJ
Played On …

The Qe2 Revival At The Fuzebox

For Char & Jeff, Nicole & The Staff Of The Fuzebox,
Who brought back to life an amazing time,
An amazing place, amazing music & an amazing scene
That can never be replaced.

“Thank You”
