Quixote chased windmills
Egyptians, the sun
Some men climb mountains
Others wield guns
Doctors give life
Judges bring death
Singers ride high on the waves of their breath
Some stand on diamonds
Drive faster cars
Some reminisce in their street corner bars
Search on the floor for their last weeks pay check
Cheer for the home team
Tip back their neck

And we race
And we race
And we race to be first

While quenching a lust
And ignoring a thirst

But you cannot race life
When you stand in the crowd
You can cheer as time passes
Quiet
Or Loud
But no matter how good or how strong or how proud
Time will never turn back
It just isnít allowed



I'm on my feet, I'm on the floor, I'm good to go
All I need is just to hear a song I know

Hey,
  I thought this was a good piece. I really liked the rhyming scheme. It flowed really well will the poem. This is my fav. line.

While quencing a lust
And ignoring a thirst.

( my spelling STINKS )

Anyways, great piece.

I thought this poem was good..and the Quixote theme never seems to get old. I also liked your use of metaphors. A little uneven in terms of lines but then again poetry should be free versed.

"Silencio..no hay banda..no hay orquesta."
"We hear a band yet we don't see a band". It is all a recording."
"Silencio. It is all an illusion".
