Music - Poem by Rcd Bck

time for some music
it's time
the time is now apparently
to get the I=pod module and to stick it in your ears

i've done that before
i remember that time
it was 3 o'clock in the morning it was a hornet night

i just heard it
my heart pumping out death rattles

i woke up on a golf course to the sound of sprinklers
that was before compact discs
and orange juice the way it used to sound
with a bent Pall Mall and five bucks to your name
and a waitress named 'Im Jade Takemeoutofhere'

that's what I thought anyway but I didn't care
I'de seen her before
I see her every day
Sue and Marcia and Consuelo
Ghouls toting hash browns and ketchup

Steal a bottle of Listerine and a Bible
Go down by the river and read some proverbs
Listen to the music
