Hear Me Roar

According to Oxford Languages lionize is to “give a lot of public attention and approval to (someone); treat as a celebrity.”

I also learned there is a rock band called Lionize.

But being my Dad’s daughter I love a good pun or play on words so this is my response to lionize…

True Or False

True or false

Do you love me

I need the truth

Do you need me


I saw you first

That summer night

You were in the band

Standing in the spotlight

You sang to me

And gave me chills

You romanced me

Oh all the thrills


True or false

Do you love me

I need the truth

Do you need me


A whirlwind in a week

But the time to leave came

And I was sad and blue

But glad I’d played the game

It is forever in my mind

And close to my heart

But I wonder if you

Felt the same from the start


True or false

Do you love me

I need the truth

Do you need me

True or false

Is this love

Keep On Rockin’

She sat alone at a table in the back of the room. The heady scent of alcohol met her as the waitress sat down her drink, a long island ice-tea.  She really wasn’t here for the booze.  She would likely nurse this one all night.  She was here to see the local band perform.

The band played rock and pop music and had only been together a couple of years.  Diane had not been able to see them yet and was excited as she went to school with the bass player.  The band approached the stage.  The room quieted a bit.  And then the lights flashed on with the first note played.  This was going to be a great night.

Front Row

“Ladies and gentlemen please welcome, PRISM!” The announcer stepped back from the microphone as the crowd went wild. Taking the stage was Steve, Don, Harry and Craig, better known as Prism.

Lynn and Tracy had seen the band many times before and were possibly screaming the loudest as the band started into their hit song, “Always Yours.” The teenage girls had camped out and gotten front row seats for the first time. They were determined that this would be a night like no other. As Steve smiled and winked at Tracy, they knew it was only going to get better.
