Some pitfalls of the double LP (a poem)

I was listening to Pink Floyd’s The Wall while writing a couple of poems…

I
It’s unclear
why they had to say everything backwards

Somebody somewhere
was eventually going to play
the recording in reverse

I can never make it all the way through disc 2
it’s so dour, depressing, unrelenting, dull

I appreciate the concept
but I just want to hear the songs
