    The age of aquarius
    Is still forthcoming
    Although it was song
    It's impact has dimished
    To a hum

    Hippies and civil rights
    Limped out on left stage
    Leaving our new young
    Without a clue
    On how to sing again

    Replaced by video games
    Where young men dream of war
    But have nine lives
    Like a cat
    Really does not

    Make love not war
    Protest signs trampled
    And long forgot
    Although there is still
    The need to be free

    Of oppression, hunger
    Women in other counries in
    Captivity
    Stoned for not wearing a veil
    New batteries never kill the controller

    The age of aquarius, where all men will be free
    Women living with them in harmony
    Has yet to come
    Our dreams now lost on our children
    With video game controllers in their hands

    Next word: Hippie

    The beat rings clear in my head
    Rythmic as my heart beats
    Sunday morning dancing
    To music no one hears
    But me

    Zamunda
    Leisurely swaying hips
    Vaccuming and cleaning
    Stpping to turn on the radio
    LOUD

    Neighbors complaining
    Me laughing
    My cats chasing and playing
    Always makes me happy
    The Zamunda beat

    Next word: ECLIPSE

    Mass glow in da shadow
    as they cross maze eclipse
    upon da skies of memory

    Like da lunar of my love
    as it orbit and cross the soul
    into an eclipse of emotions

    Leaving a reddish glow
    far and between
    that play in my mind
    a star show repeatedly



    NEXT WORD::: Respective!

    Nine time the charm
    like baseball nine players
    standing
    as I cross my nine elements
    to a place before ten
    I rest myself upon da blocks
    eight time you told me
    but only one come to mind
    that's nine!
    so I shine on

    next word ;; Respective!

    Your ignominious
    Treatment of my soul
    Set me flying
    The other direction
    Than closer to you
    What did you think
    I would forget
    Or that in having me again
    You had me in your grasp
    Trapped
    Your trophy
    That you held up
    To your friends
    Saying
    See what I got
    But
    I had the last laugh
    You only got to do it once
    Before I ran again

    Next word: oblique

    Mixed bodies in a crumpled twist
    Looking like the pains of arthritis
    As they shake and turn
    Coveting the return of sensations within the legs of both
    To start anew
    The painful pleasures
    Of the enjoyment of lovers

    Next word: ubiquitous

    Will you come and be with me
    Your power is always present to me
    Whom ever the lucky female shall be
    I always feel it's so me
    How ubiquitous this may seem
    But I am you
    As you shall become me
    As soon as we present each other more
    In her own words
    Finding her chance forever more.
