By Don Hamaliuk

I’ve got these words inside me and need to get them out
Most are soft and gentle but some just make me shout
Like thinking about the egos, of our world today
How some turned out so greedy and need to have their way

My mind goes on the defense, for everyone they hurt
Building on their empires, like a privileged stuffed shirt
I wish they’d come to their senses and give-up all their greed
And spread their wealth and wisdom, to all that really need

But our world’s not quite ready, to do that at this time
We need to get more writers, working on their rhymes
The influence that’s needed, to give their head a shake
Is what most every mother, would like their child to take

Be respectful of each other and choose your words with care
Be happy with your lot in life and the people that are there
Work when you have to, but take some time to play
And be careful with your ego, when things don’t go your way

I guess I'll just fail the test unless it's to indicate there are
two No Through Roads with a Turn Around at their ends. Or
could it be saying there are some exercise rings hanging
just ahead. -

Dennis Meneely - Since Dennis Meneely’s first band 'Why Us' in 1965, his musical journey has included numerous bands, musicians, recordings, and tours. Dennis recorded his first single at 18 in Clovis, New Mexico, with producer Norman Petty (Buddy Holly, The Fireballs). Since then he has played with some of Canada's most respected bands and alongside some of the world’s more recognized artists, opening in the early days for 'The Tom Northcott Trio' , The Guess Who, The Youngbloods, Witness Inc., The Fireballs, Lighthouse, Crowbar, Whisky Howl, and King Biscuit Boy.

In the following decades, Dennis was a member of 'The Kenny Shields Band (Streethart) ', 'Toronto with Holly Woods' and Tacoy Ryde/Jato doing shows with artists as varied as Joan Jett, The Third World Band, Steel Pulse, The Soweto Gospel Choir and Royal Southern Brotherhood, and performing at numerous Canadian festivals featuring Canada's most revered acts (Chilliwack, Headpins, Trooper, The Tragically Hip, Monkey Junk, Big Sugar, and more.)

Now as a veteran, Dennis freelances locally and regionally with a new generation of artists such as Angela Mackenzie, Paula Perro, and Lynne Chwyl. In addition, Dennis is looking forward to finishing his current recording project under his own banner. Great to have Dennis back gracing our stage. -
