Poetry Contest

A Poem About The Legendary Icon.. Or all things Motorhead!!
Fellow Poets, with a heavy heart i pose this challenge.. Write a poem about what, Lemmy and  Motorhead meant to you.. Even in death our idols inspire us.. i'm not the greatest poet, and will never claim to be.. that being said, in the words of Lemmy.. "I AM ME, AND I DO IT TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY" don't forget i'm not qualified to do anything else.. One entry, new poem.. whether you're a fan or not, research this man.. He lived and breathed everything he did.. it may not be your kind of music, but respect the gift.. And realize nothing is promised in life, so live it to the fullest.. and be you, and embrace your gift.. i'll post an example, it's not in the competition.. best of luck.. with love..

LEMMY



custom made
leather rebel
ace of spades
preaching truth

true icon
blood is poetry
you walked
like you talked

Rickenbacker bass
cigarette in mouth
black silhouette
spitting knowledge

godfather of metal
wouldn’t exist
without you
forging new ground

fuck money
and government
truth revealed
for music all in

jack and coke
have another
inspiration
calls once again

over 20 albums
speaking minds
final salute
death or glory

mighty hawk
wrestling wind
dues paid
motorhead

head cat
rock n’ roll
thank you
R.I.P. Lemmy

         last lonely blues


youth is a wild thing
& sometimes the wild heart
don't lay down with age

caught a train to the edge of trouble
woulda had a sedate life
if it weren't for whores & gutter blues

strap my sleepy soul to the back
of a harley, ride me where the music goes
when there is nothing left to say
& no one listens anyway

stars don't shine on a sinless stage
mouth fulla whisky, hand fulla danger
& I'll never forget the things I can't remember

wrote me a song
wrote me a song to sing
when love is gone...

Motorhead in my head
Wide open throttle
V Twin roars like thunder
Beer buzz feels like heaven

Live fast and ride hard
Turn it up to eleven
Heaven's calling me home
But I've got miles to go

Dead men tell no tales
But you had so much to say
I'll keep on riding into the night
I raise to you the iron fist

Saw you with Dio
Back in the day
Now your'e both gone
Could I be next

I don't care
Just want to go faster
Better to die on my own terms
Than to be killed by death

R.I.P Lemmy! Say hey to Ronnie James for me!

Pour another drink and play it LOUD

riding v-twin rickenbacker thunder
fast and hard
life's wind in his face
worn leather jacket
ace up his sleeve
stands in own light
casting wide shadows
flicker flame
he breathes in life
pillar of stone
life's knowledge
in faded denim
rock 'n roll
valhalla
has reclaimed another god
his hammering bass
and lyrics
his message
in metal
to all who would listen
unapologetic
he lived
and died

I raise my glass and empty it....to you

Under My Breath

These long days have my throat quenching for a thirst
I drink my Jack from the bottle.
Jack wasn't doing me no good
So I got me some Absolut
and I was born to raise hell

Went downtown to find me some tail
I ain't looking for no wife
just looking for another one night stand
I'm sure your just another obsessed fan,
but baby you can't handle this life.

These nights have me feeling tired
Need some more medicine
to help me get wired
Time to start over again.

If I keep on living this way
I won't see another light of day
Might reach an uncertain death,
but I love this life under my breath.

Ace of Spades

The gambler dead is all the
same for good to him loosing
the same as winning part
of life the pleasure to play
no difference no greed
playing The Ace of Spades
dancing circles around the
devil flow in hand the same
snake eyes double quit
split to another universe
born to lose no other way
live forever in hearts
the joker never forgotten
don't weep celebrate
the eyes and strokes
pushed the limits of
invincibility like other
talents on the hunt
to uncover the realities
of the other side. Truth.
The Motörhead is dead
lived to win fast and loose
jailbait dance and bite
the bullet because the chase
is better than the catch.
Killed by death the iron
fist bomber dancing in the
afterlife metropolis stone
dead forever like a nightmare
steal your face leaving here
the iron horse born to lose.

Hey thanks Diamond Dave!! All of us metal heads will miss Lemmy for sure, I'm glad I got to see Motorhead once with Dio which was beyond awesome!
Thanks everyone for showing Lemmy the love!
