Friday Fictioneers: The Music

“All I got is bad luck.”

“And a pair of beat up boots.”

“And a pair of beat up boots.”

“Man, you got to pick yourself up.”

“No one calls me ‘man.’ They call me, boy.”

“That’s cause you let them.”

He hung his head in defeat.

“You gona let them win or you gona be a man?”

He heard, listened, and started playing his guitar.

Some tried to stop him, but the music was too deep in him.

Wherever he went, black and white, they stopped and listened to his guitar and song.

He changed the history of music.

This was inspired by an episode of the TV show Timeless, “The king of the Delta Blues,” which was inspired by Robert Johnson, “Grandfather of Rock and Roll.”
