headphones
volume on high
eyes closed
from the staring gavel
the beat flows
the bass pounds

the music murders
society's puppet
freedom rings
dancing in public
the most courageous thing

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
