Ode to Richie Sambora, How do we love thee?
Rock n' Rolls Most Under-Rated Musician, Bon Jovi guitarist and Bluesman Richie Sambora
The folllowing is an adaptation of an Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem:
How do we love thee, Richie Sambora? Let us count the ways.
We love thee to the blues-driven riff and the power cord bite.
Our souls quiver and yearn, beguiled by your might.
To the core of our being, those soulful brown eyes we embrace.
We love thee near and far, young and old
So much that when seated in the Circle we are driven mad; inexplicably bold.
Most loyal and desperate need by light of day and solo spotlight
We love thee freely as critics strive for enlightened sound and sight
We love thee purely, your non-chalance, the Aw-shucks smile does delight
We love thee with a passion that we hope and dream to use
You soothe old griefs and heartbreak with root beer brown eyes
Undiscovered soul, oh purveyor of soft sensuous Blues
We love thee with a love we seemed to lose to Life’s constraints
We love thee with all laughter, tears, alone, or as Bon Jovi’s stylistic mate
We love thee for the playfulness, vulnerability, and cool
We love thee for the stoic walk
You inspire us to Overcome
You teach us how to make it through
We love thee for your vulnerability, your cool
Your sense of style
The Master's way the stringed ax you do blaze
And if it be that God divines
Rock critics stupidity does distress
Then know you’ve thoroughly rocked millions of us
We love you
To know you is to love you
For all of Us, you truly bless.
