Alex Rubin

Alex Rubin was born in queens NY, eighty-three

a guitar playing rockstar he wanted to be

now a bit older and reality's more clear

after working his hands, his mind, and his ear

there seems to be forces outside his control

that keep him from breaking, keep him playing the role

the role of a teacher a writer a technician

while life seems to pull him away from his mission

to break out with songs heard all round the earth

and seeing that quality of music's great dearth 

paying the bills and feeding his gut

and practicing frustrated petting his mutt

married and happy at times there's dismaying

but he'll just keep on writing and teaching and playing

one day his luck may become more salient

but right now he plays while nobody sees it
