FC: Just A Brick Wall By Sarah Morrow
1: Jump the Wall Jump the wall and start again Only no one knows where to amend Normal is the smile in a boys eyes and the dead stare in a man who's forgotten how to fly Psychiartrist fix my brain Shake off the disturbia in my mane Please, I'll never ride again Just promise to make me a men.
2: End Ryhme The learning hall of misfortune Cranky shambles of contortion When did this relatonship turn from love to hate? A classroom of life and fate Where once was playdough in my hand Is now a topple of acedemic cans.
4: The Flammable Pajamas This is the story of the flammable pajamas It all starts with a girl and a yellow bandana. She had floor length hair and one black nail She'd dig in her claws and make you wail. Strutting under the phone line where converse hung No shoes today but a yellow cloth sung- "I'll take you away, now don't be scared grab me down and you will be bared" Away down the brick walled street she ran yellow bandana in her hand. The more she wore that piece of sun The less she saw of new things begun. Her strut turned to saunter, the saunter turned bland The gansters would whisper "She quit that punk girl band." The bandana would betray her- it happened one night She would bite her goth black nail and scream with all her might.
5: .She could'nt stop her fingers from moving down the frets That yellow bandana, I'd be willing to bet Gave a wicked howl from the top of her head set flames to her fluffy blue pants as she jumped from the bed. She lit up the city as she ran down the street That brick walled street with the cursed yellow cloth and the girl with flammable pajamas that closed it off.
6: Free Verse Maybe I should have walked away. Labeling this with a sketchy cliche'. But i believe in second chances. And third. It's like throwing yourself off a cliff. The only thing I regret. If we hadn't started at a run. We could have helped each other if we were walking.
8: Poet and Musician Comparison "I love Rock n' Roll, so put another dime in the juke box baby.." Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have more in common with the 19th century poet, Eugene Field, than you would think. Both were successful against the grain in their chosen fields. Joan Jett broke down the gender barriers with her punk rock girl band. Eugene Field was one of the first, and only poets to write only childrens poetry and make a living off it. Both rocker and poet also wanted to be actors before they found their real calling. Eugene Field was born in 1850 and raised by his cousin in Missouri. He studied at several colleges, each for only a few months. Lack of money forced him to take a job working on a Gazette. It was there he realized his knack for writing. During Field's career he wrote mostly humorous poetry for children, giving him the nickname of The Children's Poet. The Duel is one of his more famous poems. "The gingham dog and the calico cat side by side on the table sat. Twas half past twelve and (what do you think!) nor one nor t' other had slept a wink!"
9: Joan Jett is recognized as one of the leading artist of the punk movement. Intially, Joan was turned down by every record label in the business (28) until someone finally cut her a break. After making a name for herself in the music industry Jett became an actor, radio host, and producer. She was one of the first extremely sucessful women in the business. Both poet and singer appealed to people that were outside the circles they were selling to. Eugene Field's poems were cherished by children and loved by adults. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts appealed to people of all music tastes. With such a large appeal it's no wonder both are still known today.
