Ringo Starr bashes his way to eighty. Good to see Richard’s still kicking that kit.

Starr Bright.

Happy 80th birthday, Ringo Starr,
Who’d have thought you’d come this far?
Does the oldest member of the worlds best band
Take a moment to bow his head and silently stand?

On his auspicious day there’s a tinge of regret
As he remembers the glory days of a great quartet,
Since he’d first set the Beatles beat on ‘Love Me Do,’
Time has now cruelly edited the Fab Four down to two.

  1. In a rare moment, I really don’t have much to contribute, commentary-wise. But I should note that I jotted the phrase “whittle shavings” on one of the index cards that I keep on my desk, cards placed there for the sole purpose of capturing thought-seeds for future stories. Something murky is brewing in my fevered mind. Do not be alarmed…

    1. Thought seeds has a nice ring to it… and a card system? I’m agog at such professionalism . My ”work station’ is adrift with random squiggles written on receipts, notes on a napkin, endpapers from my battered copy of The Art Of The Deal, anything expendable that I can put my mark on. The problem is when my mind tries to back- track and find what piqued my interest my ‘system’ fails me.
      Beatles wise there is inspiration aplenty there, so I won’t be alarmed, I’ll await the fruition of your murky musings with anticipation.
