As mammoth as auntie was she was still old-fashioned, her vintage music collection was as mushy as the flavours of the 70s, she feasted on. Her views were still as old as the subcontinent and her pride made her belong to the past, not the present. She was in a deep old rut and there she wished to be in all her passion and heavy fervour. A stick in the mud, you try to wave in the air. The clockwork precision. Rambunctious by the heavy cemented pillars. I’ll try something new if variety is the spice of life, who am I , not just a race, I wouldn’t fight with you, Old Auntie, dexterity eludes the slow moving elephant of your nostalgia and undoes you.
I can’t remember, but that keeps us casting ourselves out there far from your enclosure of space, the fresh new waters.
If you are going to draw on 70s music, let’s make something new of it. Check out this tune by AZ called World Don’t Stop. I am particularly fond of this remix version, I hope you like it too.
