The End of the Era of Blakean Patience

Just for the flair of it

we abandon the fairest before they plummet—

 

Before the end is done

it’s better to look like the clever one who seen it come—

 

Showered in shards of glass kicked up from your sandbox,

Running from the rain with hot slag in our socks—

 

Soon unblocked, like hips opening up in a squat—

Soon unlocked, like a juiced kumquat—

 

For now, stuck in your garden variety pot,

an heirloom fruit of the tomb fettered in thought knots—

 

A feral hairless ape who has finally heard enough,

who resides in the time to buy lace only to tear it up—

 

It’s the end of an era

and any end summons terror—

 

But there’s a secret sharer between the burning sensations

intercepting fate’s fishnets while we stroke our impatience—

Get on It

As soon as I hear a beat, my heart skips, I get on it /

Don’t be obtuse, I’m so acute don’t even need chronic /

The sonic elation got me bombing radio stations /

Facing a blank age disappearing from this great nation /

No patience, so we bleed from our eyes onto kilobytes /

No one even knows what it’s like to spend a lonely night /

Unless the Wi-Fi is down, then we’re in trouble /

Suddenly silent in the town we built from a tech bubble bubble /

Attack the rubble, or at least whatever’s left /

We are one that’s split, like a lip that’s cleft /

But I know what’s left, and it can’t be liked /

A lightning strike, lighting up the day or night night /

Now don’t be a frightening, don’t hide behind a pop song’s lies /

Unplug, unwind, where your freak flag flies /

Do or do not don’t try, even if you don’t belong on it /

As soon as you hear a beat, open your heart, get on it…

 

As soon as I hear a groove I move, I can’t help it /

My body is the music, like dropping E, you know you felt it /

Unsheltered, nude before the evil-lasting eye /

I see you in front of I, these rules are hard to abide by /

So crunch it, eat it for lunch if you don’t have time to lose /

Burn with the fire inside, consumed by the groove /

My dog can sense it too, I know you got a bright side /

Let’s see it for once & a while…at least you can try /

Believe it or not there’s kids inside, so let them out /

You locked them up yourself when you gave in to doubt /

With no clout, just trust in clouds & four leaf clovers /

Following stars with your head below ground like a gopher /

Now easy over homie, don’t crack up on me /

I only got one moment to prove I’m not a phony /

Got a mind full of dreams, I’m pretty set on it /

That’s why when I hear a beat I let go & get on it …

 

Dig it in vibes & such:

‘Get On It’
