MayPoWriMo 24

Bob Dylan is 80 he’s barely begun 
To turn old the way some folks turn young
He’s out on the road and it’s never ending
He turns the key which way the lockdown’s bending

I listened to his music twenty years ago it’s true
All the so called classics and all the deep cuts too
He sang about losses he sang about regret
He knows in his heart that true love tends to forget

He’s a song and dance man he don’t look back
He’s goin’ to Acapulco from the basement tracks
Though the time keeps changing and shall be released
I wonder if the river flows into a masterpiece

Bob Dylan is 80 he knows a hard rain’s gonna fall
Don’t think twice if you gotta go no time to think at all
