    Good-bye Pork Pie Hat
    Was a sonnet
    Of a deep sarcasm
    The slow low saxophones
    Waning like a cat
    Whining
    But Theolonius saw it
    He was close to it
    Intrigued by the coming of rapture
    Until it possessed him.
    Being the one ain't easy,
    The trouble with jazz
    Is the same trouble that Miles has,
    Did a gig on 5th Ave
    And some one decided to take the
    The junkie out of modern day jazz
    Let the improve stop
    Took the Bee from Bop

    Why is Kenny G King?

    Rapture is coming
    Can't you feel it ?
    Like the four winds that blow
    Don't you feel it?
    The answer is coming
    The answer is coming
    &What are we if we are not crazy
    the rapture is coming
    Didn't you see the commercial on television
    Date lines running it
    Tupac Shakur died trying to find it
    Mozart went crazy at the thought of it
    But somehow they knew
    What it felt like to be the one
    I have a dream for you
    But I don't wanna die
    I don’t want to
    But, I don’t want to live
    To see rapture take my son eyes
    And see the dawn.

    I missed this one, and for that, I am sorry. I'm bringing it back up. You are such a talent. I loved the names, places and faces you wove into this piece. Keep flowin'.
