Topic: World Predicate

Just something that came to me so I thought I would share.
Predicate (I went with the verb def because it was easier for me to rhyme with.)
verb
/ˈpredəˌkāt/
1. state, affirm or assert (something) about the subject of a sentence or an argument of a proposition.
"a word that predicates something about its subject"
2.
found or base something on.
"The theory of structure on which later chemistry was predicated"

World Predicate By Jeff Gilpin

Intro E D A D


~


I [E]think about the world I live in.


I [E]think about all the places I’ve been.


[A]Yet my world view’s been thinner than thin.


And I [E]still go and visit old places again.


My [D]fear of what’s out there’s not up for debate.


But I [A]still want to find a better [D]world predicate.


~


[E]How in the world can I describe?


[E]Places where people can barely abide.


Or [A]hold in their anger all cooped up inside.


Or [E]maybe they are just along for the ride.


[D]Hoping they get out before it gets too late.



[A]Maybe find a better [D]world predicate.


~


[E]I cannot know all of the places.


[E]I will not be able to see all the faces.


[A]I am like old shoes without any laces.


[E]No paths to explore or old path retraces.


[D]There is no victory I can celebrate.


[A]While I try to find a better [D]world predicate.


~


[E]Woods getting old crumbling to dust.


[E]People backstabbing no one can you trust.


[A]Try to survive before we all go bust.


[E]Crumbling old bridges just covered in rust.


I want to [D]cross that bridge that divides the hate.


[A]Might bring a better [D]world predicate. [E7]

Re: World Predicate

Jeff
I quite agree with all the above
Pete and Phill are showing the love
Brian is  liking the scheme thereof
and your message fits just like a glove
the world in ways has become degenerate
but your song seems the best predicate !

Thought it was genius work my friend - made me think a lot !

Well done!

Re: World Predicate

I have a predilection
That could lead to a conviction
An uncomfortable vacation
In a room of mass extinction
While the world goes on in rapture
Over what they shoot or capture
As we modify our nature
to accommodate our pleasure
And name it as our fate
While we thoughtlessly copulate
Eventually...predicate

OK I will play along, as each have contributed to this poem and song.


The cunning mind, feels alone
As it leaves us all behind.
Forward into the nether we shall meet our end
And hear our final chime.

Some await the final moment
The greatest question will be known,
What will be the answer?
Will the mind be blown?

I'll keep it going big_smile

Quoting quoted quotes
Cause my thoughts to wander
To the state of Washington
Across the pond, I ponder

Limitless in scope
The topics where we tread
Tickles in my throat
Whiskey colored red

A toast! I raise my glass
In hopes of brighter days
To thought-provoking friends
Whose words always amaze

Re: World Predicate

Hot toast with melting butter
Maybe covered with spaghetti tinned and egg fried
Tea, the drink of champions
So delicious, my tummy satisfied.

News on TV same old drudge
Riots, war and murder abound
Why not give us heartfelt joy
And spread the spread around.

Marmalade, strawberry jam or marmite
Choices, choices, choices
Do not put marmite on my toast please
Love it, hate it...hate it, yuk

Soft cheese triangles
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
Toast burnt round the edges
Sits well in my tummy.

Toast a toast we're toasting
Marshmallows on an open fire
Good old malt scotch whisky
The best, I am no liar.

LET NOT THE WEEKEND BRING SORROW.

LOOK TO THE SKY AS THE SUN COMES OUT,
AND KNOW WE ARE ALL RESCINDS HERE AND ABOUT big_smile
