Here is another example
Of a rhythmic serendipity
A man can only take so much
Till he says goodbye
And welcomes eternity
Takes a shell
And rewinds relapses
Every time the half
Of it
Breaks down
And like that
He’s back
Second chance
Take another stab at it
It’s kill or be killed
Just another street habit
Just a target on his back
The rhythm relapses
And connected are the severed synapses
The microphone mind
In time
Die or grow dust
But not us
Well keep going
Till the microphone rusts
We’ll never
Get enough
