Jungle Rhythm

Tick, tock.

I close my eyes, and sway

To the gentle rhythm

Of drums in the distance,

As the clocks tick

And keep the beat.

My heart beats—

Fascinating rhythm!

Do you feel the breeze

Blowing through the trees,

Humming to a tune,

Catching my hand

As it sways back and forth

Above the tall grass,

Swaying in the breeze?

I ask you, please?

Come with me, and jump

From tree to tree!

See Ya

Swivel to the right. I’m a master of flight

Don’t touch me, or I’ll break you down.

Can you see the light in me?

Can you grasp the cloudy clue?

Damn, the same thang comes round.

Every time, we sigh. I just missed it.

Rewind that high, plaster my breath

On your face. Don’t check it.

Close the frame. Play that game.

Twist it on top. Ride the wind to my—

Castle on the mountaintop, oh, see ya.
