broken skin

no word from drum
you know you need some
he searches but he’s dumb

as a poet, he should know it
‘fore he throw it

keeper of time
ripping
dancer in rhyme
but not tripping
exploding your mind…

(but not this time)

all he can say, is
third parties get no play 
not smarter than Beck
word has no self-respect
just left-wing reject
other than that
the drum is broken
the groove of truth
won’t be spoken
some day soon
it will again be smokin’

(in summery:)

-stay Republican

-beat the Dems

-go on with your life

-it’s easier to fix the drum
rather than make a new one

Now it’s the guitar, in the first part of the 20th century, it was the tenor saxophone. The instrument that is the sound of the time. Sonny and Trane were the two greatest tenor players of their time. Rollins, the culmination of jazz history from Coleman Hawkins to Charlie Parker; and Coltrane, the transcendent explorer and new voice for his generation, and the future of music.
