    they wrote a song

    songs, like poems
    can haunt your mind
    and you find them playing
    at the damnedest times

    they made it long

    verses just go on and on
    no rules of theory they had to obey
    every time they loved
    a new chord would play

    the beat is strong

    and nasty, like the deep
    throated pounding on
    a tight bass drum
    telling where it's all
    coming from

    yeah, uh huh,

    they wrote a song
    they made it long
    the beat is strong

    and it still plays on

    the most important element

    of this thing called 'poetry' isn't always where the writer is coming from...it's where the poem takes the reader. I'm not a poet, by any stretch. But I felt this one. And I'm learning from all of you, how to 'see' from the heart and soul.

    Thank you for showing me what you saw.

    don't sleep
    we hear the beat
    the music in streets
    and the flow of a brotha named "T"
