    THINGS REALLY TURNING
    ********************************

    Are things really turning
    Out the best for me
    In spite of free,
    Denying me

    Can worlds...
    Keep on spinning
    Such reality
    Convincingly,
    With poetry

    Does art,
    Come together
    In one good climax
    Then wane and wax,
    To the syntax

    Do wheels,
    Keep on turning
    Cause the road is flat
    Does being black,
    Make black all that...

    Let crime keep on turning
    Then get swept away
    With time to pay
    The hard time way

    Should God,
    Ever come along-
    To save the day

    Things...
    Might then,
    Be explained-
