Our house was small with hardly any light. I was all right till I went to school, but then things changed. I lived through the sixties. Purple crushed velvet flares. Flower child.

I heard speeches about freedom and speeches about fear. I’ve been like Billy Pilgrim and visited other Universes. And this wheel I call life keeps rolling as it heads towards the Sun…
