The Fifty Cent Tour

crush groove

call in the neighbors
roll up the carpet
put the rat race ball and chain
away

kick off the footwear
dance barefoot tribal
let's make those chandeliers
sway

stomp sand to stardust
breathe in the sparkle
blaze up the dark of the
day

open out the windows
let the good times tumble
down the fire
escape

 go rain those diamonds, baby
let 'em fall like Niagra
they ain't forever
like they say

down time is precious, sugar
spend it like you got it
cuz all God's children
gotta play

  9. I loved the rhythm of this! The feeling it gave me. And I think I loved best the message of that last stanza. Great poem! Visiting from TRDC and so glad I did...now I want to dance!
