#MM Music Challenge — Leaving it to others

New MM Music Badge

Jim Adams is the astral projection admiring host of Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Music Challenge.  Jim says:
The challenge today is to focus on [“I’d Love to Change the World,” by Ten Years After, written by Alvin Lee] and use it for a short story, a piece of flash fiction, or a poem that you can share with the WordPress writing community.

Aside from the epithets in the beginning, it’s a pretty good song. I wasn’t sure where to take it, as I think a lot of us are feeling this way right now. Timely choice of song, Jim. What I did is take three lines from it and use them as the first stanza of my poem; then I took each line and built a stanza from it.

I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you

I’d love to change the world
To peace from maelstrom swirled
To love from hatred hurled

But I don’t know what to do
Paralyzed and blinded blue
What is real’s unknown, askew

So I’ll leave it up to you
Here’s my throat, now slice it through
Trusting snakes for future’s view
