oh how we love to beat the drum
taste the rhythm feel the thrum
of sonic waves pulsating
to the core of our desire

eliciting both fast and hard
repeated climax epic
in proportions and sustained
a veritable flood of riches
destined to defame
into so much ichor

hero worship feeds the tide
their suffering a tragic ride
but glorious
the single handed mastery
of crisis
allowing us to celebrate
and live to beat another day

their cult of personality at play
a drug our adoration
as with their every move
we swing and sway
believing our excesses right and good
while they protect our neighborhood
above all others

imagine there's another way
thoughtful a compendium
of parts achievable
and small
designed to be maintained
for the long haul

in harmony
if you will

embracing all the textures
contributing in time
without a spill

percussion's not to be eschewed
but as a sauce
not the main course
heightened impact realized
from rarity

while constant strain
of all the voices
in refrain
ensures longevity
of all the neighborhoods and species

in harmony
if you will

dojo shadorma II

stem to stern
he attends to each
and ev'ry
tactile inch
lingering where needs and wants
sing in resonance
