Nothing against Hynde or her traveling crew, who still make it, and make it well, but I do think a poem can do, can do this energy, and approach too even on the music and rhythm. As a reader of poems, I hereby request that you and others give it a try. Admittedly, it is hard for a poem to be as repetitive as a song like this, with repetitive here not being a perjorative concept, integral as it is to rock, punk, power chording, and tunes in general. A qualification: if you are talking about the LOUD sonic wow-woosh of amplified electric music, then you I agree completely that a poem can't do it.
Hi Steven,No, not talking the loud sonic swoosh. And not talking Bob Dylan or John Lennon, more the sense of the ragged rhythm here and, I guess a little of the swagger. How does that translate?
Got ya!Ragged rhythm, with swagger!I think you could, with words. Or have a blast trying!
