A soundless shout of the mind - Bangkok, Thailand

I'm drinking a beer - a rock tune shakes the air - 
I'm leaning on a van that has been turned into a bar.
Suddenly a voice thunders out in the street, 
or it might just be a soundless shout of the mind: 
"No, no, no! Some women don't get it, 
it's all a misunderstanding. 
We are not looking for sex, stability, surrogates. 
The Beatles were right: All we need is love".
