The One and Only Billy Shears

I heard this song by Billy Shears
on the AM radio the other day
and could have sworn
it was the Beatles all over again

It was high time the lesser frequency
hit the air with such determined soul
competing against the likes of
American cricket and European football
Limbaugh and Beck
agrinews and golden oldies

This old thumb or forefinger
or whatever functions best on
any given night
dials in with as much precision
as humanly possible
hoping to catch a southward wave
back to nineteen sixty-seven

may two thousand fifteen
