Do people still play air guitar?
Rock ‘n’ Roll is dead
But do we still feel the need
To air shred?
Low single figures
The number of mirrors
And not felt the need
For a pout and
A fake power chord
The adoring crowd of one
The perfect guitar strap and plectrum combo
The microphone stand sitting just right
Ready for non-stop anthems
In the greatest show of all time
Then your partner walks in
And you wouldn’t feel as embarrassed
If it was the other thing
That would be more understandable
Than playing at being another cocksure demi-god.
