Pete and Eric

I was once related to

a man who ascribed

to “Clapton is God.”

 

He played a pretty mean

guitar his own self,

heavy on the blues

 

me on bass  

not quite so mean

but

... trying

 

He’s gone now,

murdered by a

hit and run

 

but I’ll see Clapton tonight

and only the two of them

will know who really is God.
