Suburban Girl Wishes for Life of Billie Holiday

Do I like Led Zeppelin?

Didn't all the blues greats

Get their sound and knowledge from them?

The light they shine down

On our black/blue faces, we are eternally grateful

For their generosity

And if I practice really hard and long

Maybe one day I will have long and golden


Just like Robert Plant

Beth, might you be a little poetry biased?
